REVIEWS

My wife Rita and I just returned from our trans-Canada train & drive vacation, and had the time of our lives! We saw spectacular sights, met warm and friendly people, saw the Northern Lights, and made a lifetime of memories. We want to thank you for the wonderful job you did in setting everything up, and also for your courteous assistance and recommendations along the way.

Nick Florida, United States

We found our experience with Canada by Design & Jennifer B in particular to be most wonderful for our Trans-Canada Rail Trip. All arrangements made by her were perfect, not a hitch anywhere. When I was in touch with her with concerns, she was very prompt in responding & resolving them. We really felt her customer service was so welcoming. We have talked to a few people since our return and have recommended your company to them.

Marjorie Stock California, United States

We just returned from a trip around Newfoundland. Destinations, itinerary and accommodation was all well thought out and we had a very memorable time. Thank you Jules! I'd happily use Canada by Design again.
