The escorted tour was very well organised throughout and provided optional excursions. The hotel accommodation was very good at each city location. The tour director and local guides were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and provided a wealth of interesting facts about the history of Canada and the cities visited.

Tour staff were excellent, only drawback we could have spent more time in some of the locations. We had to move on before we saw all we wished to see. also it would be helpful to have breakfasts included in the price.

A really good holiday, got to see a lot in a short space of time. Good organisation and little things taken into consideration which makes the holiday even better. Few bits were a bit disappointing such as one hotel and some things I thought were a little pricey, but overall enjoyed our adventure!
