  • Dipto

  • Westar Travels did an excellent job in managing the tour during the peak season. All attractions were covered. All the tour guides were very good - Jamie, Stella and Simon. Hotels were decent. But Westar should drop Lake Louise gondolla (the view is not great for the ticket price and time) and instead give more time at Morraine Lake and Lake Louise.
