Q&A
  • What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
  • The Canadian Rockies are incredible. It needs to be seen to be believed

  • What did you think of your group leader?
  • Simon was very pleasant and organized. He was very positive and enthusiastic nabout all aspects of the trip. He made time to chat to all members of the ngroup.

  • Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
  • Mosquitos repellent is a must in summer

  • Is there anything else you would like to add?
  • Tweedsmuir Provincial Park; Anahim Lake;nThe accommodation was at Eagles Nest. They seem to have different levels of naccommodation for different group members.nnStandard minus - no electricity and no heating. This was the accommodation nassigned to me.nnStandard - with electricity and fridge. Assigned to some members of the ngroup.nnI asked for an upgrade to a room with electricity as other group members had. nBut was told that I needed to pay $47 for the upgrade. I did pay the nsurcharge and got a better room.nMy view is that all group members should be given the same type of naccommodation.

Stunning Scenery

I enjoyed the trip and the scenery of the areas visited is stunning.

Q&A
  • What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
  • Walking on the glacier and the ferry trip up the Inside Passage (long but nwell worth it) were the highlights for me.

  • What did you think of your group leader?
  • Alex was excellent and worked hard to ensure that all members of the group nhad options for activities suitable for them.

  • Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
  • This is an active holiday with opportunities to go hiking - I'm not sure this nwas clear to some of the people booking through different companies onto the nholiday so adjustments had to be made for them by to group leader.

  • Is there anything else you would like to add?
  • The itinerary followed was not exactly as described in the trip notes - a nvisit to Lake Louise and Lake Moraine were done on the day the notes said we nwould go to Banff and the visit to Banff took place prior to driving to nCalgary. It was good to see the lakes and have to opportunity to do some nwalking but this needs to be changed on the trip notes. It would be good to nhave some more time in Banff to explore the town.

CANADIAN ROCKIES & VANCOUVER ISLAND

Q&A
  • What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
  • Lake Moraine was my trip highlight, I have never seen colours like that nanywhere in my life.

  • What did you think of your group leader?
  • She is probably the best tour leader I have ever had. u00a0This was my first nexodus trip but I have used many other operators and she by far surpassed my nexpectations. u00a0She was fun but serious when she needed to be, direct and as nhelpful as she could be, not to mention strong (a very handy requirement ngiven the weight of my case!).

  • Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
  • Prepare for extreme temperatures at both ends of the spectrum. u00a0When the sun nis shining on you it is very hot but otherwise very cold.

  • Is there anything else you would like to add?
  • Just that I couldn't recommend this trip enough. u00a0I have been eager to go to nCanada for years now and this trip absolutely met all of my expectations.
