The tour itinerary was well planned. I liked our visit Whistler, Victoria and Banff. The scenery in the Rockies was impressive. The hotels were excellent, in particular The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Hannah did a good job in helping me to book the tour.

Overall the trip was wonderful. We saw some amazing scenery and learnt so much. We were disappointed in the "luxury gold" experience. It did not meet our expectations. We stayed in top hotels but the rooms were certainly not the best. Beautiful countryside. It was quite tiring as it involved a lot of travelling.

My husband and I really enjoyed this trip. Our group was over half Aussies, and everyone got along exceptionally well. Our group was very mature, and at 58 I suspect I was the youngest. Insight delivered what they promised. All but 4 of our group took the Rocky Mountaineer option, and really enjoyed it. I could not justify the additional cost for 2 days, and we had a lovely almost private tour for two days with one other couple, our Tour Director and Coach Driver.

Meals provided were of a very high standard. The extra legroom in the coach was great. Be prepared for some long days with early starts often though to dinner. We were lucky to see both black and grizzly bears. The weather was quite cool for June, glad we were prepared with plenty of warm clothes.
