Derby Couple
Excellent trip.Only disappointing hotel was Vancouver Sandeman Suites. This was the first hotel so u think is that what the rest are going to be like but the rest were like 4 star which made the Vancouver Hotel seem even more poor in comparison.
Also disappointed didn't have time to see anything of Montreal. Been to Montreal but haven't been to Montreal. Old town supposed to be lovely but just didn't have chance to see it.

Basildon Couple
This was two tours in one. The first half, covering Vancouver and the Rockies, was amazing. The tour guide, Robert Shupe, was exceptional. We would have liked more time in Jasper, one day just wasn't enough!

The second half, from Montreal to Toronto, was not as exciting, I guess we don't like cities as much. That said, Ottowa and Quebec City were both lovely.

Overall, many of us on the tour would have preferred longer in the Rockies and less time in Vancouver and Toronto. We'll know for next time!

Cornwall Couple
Canada did not disappoint and this tour covered so much ground. First week brilliant with wonderful scenery and second week more about cities. The journeys were too long due to overnights in Montreal which made no sense. Tour guide, Robert, made the first week and Gloria in second week almost spoilt everything with inappropriate comments and refusal to give useful information.

Overall a really excellent trip. We covered a huge amount of territory and saw many wonderfull sights. The contrast between the West and East is strong but both sides of the country are fascinating and well worth visiting.
