The Canadian Rockies     0 , QLD, Australia, Apr 2024
We started our Cosmos tour in Vancouver on April 29. The weather was perfect the entire trip and lots of wildlife to see.

Great tour of Canada Rockies     0 , QLD, Australia, Apr 2024
We really enjoyed our tour through Canada. The scenery is so beautiful.

Our guide Tarek was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful and Dennis the ...read more driver kept us safe.

Convenient booking online and very helpful direct contact with Georgie. Process and trip went to plan. Our guide Emi went out of her way to make everything right.

Really glad we had Georgie add ...read more the transfer from Narita Airport into our Tokyo hotel.

Fast paced but covered the main attractions     0 , NSW, Australia, Apr 2024

This was the trip we wanted to do pre Covid and have finally done it!. It was beautiful, sad and very informative.
