Customary gratuity to a coach driver and tour manager is about $5 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 15-20 per cent of the bill and in a bar leave a dollar or so per drink.


Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.

An excellent holiday showcasing the very best of this part of Canada. We were exceptionally lucky with the weather and viewing wildlife. Our tour guide was at all times informative without being intrusive and our driver also deserves a mention for contributing to the overall experience.

Salisbury Couple
This was an exquisite experience of country, people and wildlife which we would heartily recommend. There is one aspect which we know can't be guaranteed for the future - the weather! We were exceptionally fortunate with this, as well as in our sightings of bears (3 -cub family) and other animals. The tour director and coach driver were exemplary professionals and exceeded their job requirements. Flights are long and dreary - nobody's fault!
Advice: do NOT use the combination lock on your suitcase. Use a padlock as I did. Canadian air safety authority opened and searched my case. They use force and not the cunning tool used by the USA for combination locks. They are also very careful with your possessions. Only victim was the padlock and the case survived to fly another day.

St Leonards on Sea Couple
Really enjoyed this holiday. Fantastic scenery, guide was very knowledgeable, coach driver was terrific. Hotels were good -only downside was not having 2 nights in the same hotel in Banff - some sort of mix up with the bookings which should have been prevented I would have thought! As usual with this type of holiday, some parts were rather rushed, e.g. visiting a lake and given only very, very short times before returning to the coach. Of course I realise that when covering such great distances this sort of thing might be impossible to control. Overall I was very happy and am glad I chose this holiday.

dumfries Couple
We had a wonderful holiday . The mountains and scenery of the Canadian Rockies were spectacular. Also, the accommodation and places we were in were very good . But the changing of the Hotels so near the start of the holiday, was a bit unsettling.
