REVIEWS

I failed to mention how much we liked the hotel in Calgary. What a beautiful building. Our view out the window was the tower. What a treat when it started changing colors at night. When we turned off, there were all these trees covered in snow. It was like a Christmas tree fairyland. It was snowing pretty good. So coming from Texas in the summer it was really special, almost magical. We did not get to see the lake he thought was so pretty cause it was too cloudy, but seeing the snow and trees it did not matter.

It was a dream come true. I am so happy! Thank you so much for putting this together for us! The Northern Tales guides were awesome! Helpful and so passionate about what they do, we loved them all! It was fantastic! The hotel in Vancouver was incredible ! They were so friendly and helpful to us weary travellers! We did the Capilano Suspension Bridge and then enjoyed the view and some wine & tapas from a very nice waterfront hotel!

We met up with two friends that live in BC and departed Vancouver 19 Sept 2017 / 21 Sept 2017 on the Basic Aurora Borealis Package (3days/2nights). The service we received during our booking process and again on our trip was second to none. The staff at Canada by Design could not have been more helpful and friendly.
