Thanks for a great holiday. The Rockies - awesome, Victoria- beautiful. Whistler- magic. All the itinerary was excellent. Well done team!!

Mark Sydney, Australia

Paulina organized an awesome trip for us which included Vancouver Island and the Rockies. The tours with Discover Banff were great.

Peter Australia

Our trip through Western Canada was as breathtakingly beautiful as we had hoped and the whole experience progressed flawlessly. Our agent was Jasmine Wong and she understood what we wanted and had the expertise to arrange the whole two weeks to perfection. Our trip included a Via train trip, various sightseeing coaches, a flight to Whitehorse and then another to Vancouver, narrow-gauge railway trip to Skagway (utterly fantastic) and a rental car for our time in Whistler, and of course great accommodations throughout as well as side excursions. Our detailed itinerary included all the vouchers and tips and hints for our added enjoyment. We highly recommend their service.
