  • Craig

  • The 5 days Western Rockies Tour was spectacular. Our Tour Guide - Michael - was knowledgeable, courteous, bi-lingual ( in Chinese and English) and flexible with the dates and times of visiting each itinerary item depending on the crowds, weather, etc. The Tour Bus Driver - Linda - was also knowledgeable about the roads and knew how to navigate the large bus through various different roads, terrain, and weather conditions. our group was relatively small at 16 people but the group was friendly, prompt in leaving the various sites, and willing to take pictures to avoid having to take various selfies. The Tour Guide and Bus Driver, Itinerary, and Transportation would receive 5 Stars for sure. The Accommodations were adequate. I would definitely recommend this Tour to family, friends, and all parties reading this review since the tour included 4 large glacial lakes, various waterfalls, glaciers, and mountains. A great tour to "Get Away from the hustle and bustle of city living."
