This was our first time travelling with Travel Marvel. We found the trip very well organised and had an exceptional tour guide on the Canadian leg of the trip who ensured everyone was having a good time. The accommodation was good, clean and comfortable and we could not complain about the service we were given over the bus tour part of the holiday. We travelled on the Rocky Mountaineer and the wildfires were burning around the area we travelled through so maybe a later time in the year may have been a better choice. The weather we had was fantastic, warm and sunny most days.

We had so many favourite things , a highlight was standing on the glacier drinking Maple Whiskey, sunset over the Whistler Mountains (extra tour booked) and spending time around the town of Banff. Our Alaskan cruise was the highlight of the holiday for us. The Holland American line ship was certainly value for money. The ships facilities, meals, service and staff were fantastic and our cabin was clean and comfortable. We had a lower cost room that was more than adequate as such little time is spent in your room. The ports of call were all very interesting and you could spend extra on activities or just explore the area with the Travel Marvel Cruise host who made our trip really enjoyable and her advice allowed us to get everything we could out of day excursions.

We choose extra activities at our ports of call and would highly recommend the Helicopter/dog sledding trip (worth every dollar), White pass train trip which had exceptional views and zip lining for a bit of fun. Another favourite experience was Glacier Bay where the ship went so close to the Glaciers you could hear the rumble of the ice as it cracked and fell into the ocean. If you can afford the extra we would suggest upgrade to Premium economy on the fights as we will do next time as we had lots of family's with upset children on both flights. Thank you to Yvonne and Georgina at Global Journeys who looked after us again.

Had the most enjoyable trip. I have only one complaint and that is our guide for the bus tour should also be our guide on the ship tour. We would love to have the same guide for the whole trip. Our guide Kit Cross is the most phenomenal woman I have ever met. She is so knowledgeable and made everywhere we visited so interesting. We also had a marvellous bus driver. Felt very safe where ever we went. He is also a lovely gentleman. I would travel anywhere with Kit as our tour director and Derek our bus driver. Probably Air Canada would not have been the best airline I have travelled on but for the price we paid it was ok. I would also thank Yvonne from Global Journeys for all her help with my bookings. She is also a lovely person to deal with. There were a few extra excursions ( flyover the Rockies in helicopter) we missed out on because of the weather but having fresh snow fall made up for any disappointment. Also our fellow passengers were a wonderful and friendly group. Our cruise was also fantastic. Thank you.
