    Stunning Scenery

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

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Walking on the glacier and the ferry trip up the Inside Passage (long but well 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 had 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 was clear to some of the people booking through different companies onto the holiday 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 visit to Lake Louise and Lake Moraine were done on the day the notes said we would go to Banff and the visit to Banff took place prior to driving to Calgary. It was good to see the lakes and have to opportunity to do some walking but this needs to be changed on the trip notes. It would be good to have some more time in Banff to explore the town.

    CANADIAN ROCKIES & VANCOUVER ISLAND

    An amazing and diverse active trip with fabulous scenery and wildlife.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Lake Moraine was my trip highlight, I have never seen colours like that anywhere in my life.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    She is probably the best tour leader I have ever had.  This was my first exodus trip but I have used many other operators and she by far surpassed my expectations.  She was fun but serious when she needed to be, direct and as helpful as she could be, not to mention strong (a very handy requirement given the weight of my case!).

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Prepare for extreme temperatures at both ends of the spectrum.  When the sun is 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.  I have been eager to go to Canada for years now and this trip absolutely met all of my expectations.

    CANADIAN ROCKIES & VANCOUVER ISLAND

    Mountains, glaciers, amazing blue lakes and lots of trees were on offer in abundance. Keep a sharp look-out and you might see bears and elk but you couldn't fail to see the cheeky chipmunks and the ground squirrels. This is just the trip for the outdoor type of person.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The amazing blue Peyto lake and the glacier and mini icebergs (and big fat snowflakes) at Mount Edith Cavell were some of the highlights of the trip. Pre-dawn over the bay with the tide out at Parksville gave us a magical moment. This was an unexpected hotel stop caused by the extra day spent on the ferry from Bella Coola to Port Hardy - sleeping on the floor of the ferry for the night had it's compensations!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Michel was efficient and friendly - he seemed to enjoy the trip as much as we did. He worked hard to pace the days according to the capabilities of the group and was always around for queries and questions. If he didn't know the answers to the questions, then he'd find out or lend us a book with the facts (obscure botanical questions were not his forte).When the ferry captain of the boat between Bella Coola and Port Hardy was delayed at anchor by 20 hours he and the local company worked hard to re-arrange the accommodation. This had to be done several times as the captain changed his mind about the situation and the timing of our arrival in Port Hardy. Michel consulted with the whole group and a joint decision was made to drop the night in Victoria, keeping two nights near Tofino.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    ATMs - make sure you know which banks use Visa and which use MasterCard. The banks in Canada use one or the other and you can waste some time finding a bank which will accept your card. Shops and restaurants will accept either.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    There was not much cultural content - we learnt more about the first nations and the early history from our own museum visit in Calgary than we did on the trip.

    CANADIAN ROCKIES & VANCOUVER ISLAND

    Good holiday but quite a lot of travel. The minibus was a little cramped.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Mount Robson without clouds on its peak!!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent - we had to spend 31 hours on the boat fromBella Coola to Port Hardy instead of the expected 11. Michel sorted out our hotels etc very quickly cancelling our hotel in Port Hardy and booking us into another hotel in Parkville. He made a point of consulting us as to what the group wished to do - either spend two nights in Tofino or one night in Tofino and one night in Victoris.

    There was a great mix of activity on this holiday. It was a wonderful experience

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing the bears and the whales in their natural habitat.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Good. Very knowledgeable.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you have taken suitable precautions for any injuries you may be carrying. Spraining my ankle again meant I couldn't take part in all the activities I wanted to.

    A really fabulous trip.
