“We had the holiday of a lifetime in Canada.

Thanks so much for your meticulous planning and perfect tour of this amazing part of Canada – it was even better than I hoped! Knight Inlet was absolutely stunning and we were so lucky to see grizzly bears, a black bear close up, bald eagles, ospreys, deer and lots of amazing wildlife. The drive from Jasper to Banff with the green lakes and snow covered mountains was drop jaw beautiful! The whole trip was incredible and will remain a lifelong cherished memory for all the family.”
