"It was a very memorable trip and I highly recommend to all."

I took the VIA Rail tour from Vancouver to Calgary, to celebrate my 75th Birthday. The weather was gorgeous. Some smoke from fires while on the train in BC but nothing to bother. The train was wonderful. Sleeping compartment small but very adequate. Bed extremely comfortable but covered the private potty when it pulled down. Even though I have to get up several times a night it was no problem as there is a public restroom down the hall. It was very large and great to dress and do makeup in the morning. Food was excellent and nice variety of choices. Everyone was extremely accommodating. The bus tours by "SUN DOG TOURS" is amazing. The tour bus has plush leather seats that recline to almost a bed. It only holds 30 people and there were only 11 on our trip. It stops many times to let us off and take pictures. One of the highlights that many people would not see if they drive themselves is the "Athabasca Falls". It is not visible from the highway so you would really have to watch for signs or miss it. It was only a block from the highway. The driver was excellent and provided a lot of information. The highway was #93 also called the "ICE FIELDS PARKWAY". The driver said it is the 7th in the world known for its beautiful scenery. I believe it. The Glacier ride was fun, cool, and a little slippery, but I would not miss it. The Sky Walk was very exciting, but made me a little dizzy if I looked down while walking. No problem, just look ahead. Ha ha. We walked from our Hotel to the "CHATEAU LAKE LOUISE" hotel and had dinner overlooking the Lake. Beautiful. The full day in Banff was fun and relaxing. We saw one Elk on the wildlife tour plus the beautiful "BANFF SPRINGS HOTEL". (The locals call it "The Springs"). We ate at St. James's Gate Pub on main street in Banff. It is a pub from Ireland they dis-assembled and brought to Banff and re-assembled. The Yorkshire Pudding appetizer was to die for. It was a very memorable trip and I highly recommend to all.

"We had a marvelous trip. Everything fell into place."

Worked with Jennifer planning a road trip from the Calgary Stampede through Lake, Louise, Banff, Jasper, Sun Peaks and finishing in Vancouver. We worked together using some of my ideas and many of her ideas. She booked most of our hotels, sight seeing venues and car rental. We had a marvelous trip. Everything fell into place and each hotel she selected was great and a little different from the one before. Thank you Jennifer for all your help. Will never forget this trip.

"It was such a relief to know that we could trust Canada by Design before and during our trip."

What a trip!!! Thank you Karen J. from Canada by Design! What a trip!!!! Karen J. from Canada by Design was amazing in helping us to plan our once in a lifetime trip! Everything was planned perfectly. Thanks to Karen, we stayed in the beautiful Rimrock hotel in Banff- across of the Hot springs and five minutes away from the Gondola. We were picked up for our day trips from our hotel and enjoyed the beauty of the place. In Jasper-Karen suggested to stay at Fairmont Jasper. We LOVED the resort and got a beautiful cabin on the lake. That was an amazing surprise for us! Again the day trips were well organized from A to Z. We finished the trip with a two day ride on the Mountaineer from Jasper to Vancouver (we got the silver leaf and we were so very happy with it). Canada by Design's staff always responded by email of a phone call, also when Karen was away. It was such a relief to know that we could trust Canada by Design before and during our trip.
