"Being a repeat customer attests to the quality"

My planner this year was Paulina. I was very happy with her from start to finish. I did the same type of trip last year to Vancouver Sunshine Coast and Island and was very happy with the travel designer I had then too. Same with another trip earlier was to the Atlantic provinces. Being a repeat customer attests to the quality. On every trip we were very pleased with the outcome and the one or two tiny glitches that occurred were handled promptly and to a satisfactory conclusion. Being older our self drive touring days are probably over but I would definitely recommend this to anyone - but especially to young parents with families. It is a wonderful way to see the country and the team at Canada by Design seem very very competent in planning it out for maximum benefit. Thank you Paulina - I appreciate the extra care you took.
