What our clients are saying about their journeys through Western Canada
“Great trip through Canada”
Had a great trip with a wonderful tour guide and a congenial bunch of travellers. Missed a few excursions due to heavy snowfall around Banff causing road closures - winter in the Rockies is the opposite of Oz in summer (heat waves and bushfires)!
“Endless natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies”
This was our 7th Cosmos tour and the 6th we have booked through Global Journeys. Again another great experience booking with Global Journeys who have always provided excellent service and this holiday booking with Tracey was no exception. Firstly, our bus driver Doug was excellent and kept our coach perfectly clean inside and out, and kept us and our every growing luggage safe. We would like to praise our tour director, Caterina Armeni who was the most amazing, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, helpful ...read more and friendly person we have ever experienced on a Cosmos tour. Even if we had rain, Caterina brought sunshine with her every morning as we got onto our coach. The actual tour itself was wonderful and we got to visit so many places we had only seen in pictures but in real life, the magnificence of the Canadian Rockies is breathtaking. We had the bonus of early snow falls which did not cause any problems with our travelling, but added even more beauty if that was even possible. Day to day travelling on this tour was not long and we were able to enjoy each destination on arrival, with plenty of time to explore beautiful towns like Banff, Jasper and Whistler. Some of the included excursions were a tour of the Summerhill Winery in Kelowna, the beautiful Lake Louise, an explorer shuttle onto the Athabasca Glacier and time at Butchart Gardens in Victoria. There were many optional tours to choose from and it was hard to decide which ones to take but our favourite would have to have been a Seaplane Glacier flight in Whistler. For excellent value for money its hard to look beyond Cosmos and booking with Global Journeys is a no brainer, they always do a perfect job of organising every tour we have taken with them and we can't thank them enough.
“Wonderful Canadian Rockies Tour”
We had a wonderful trip doing the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park with Globus. The hotels were first class and very comfortable and the included meals were also very good. Our tour guide Neela was excellent as was our bus driver. I would highly recommend this trip to others and Globus as well.
“Truly Majestic Rockies”
Thank you Jemma you did a great job of organising our trip! Absolutely dazzling! Highlight was definitely the Rockies, however I would omit the Okanagan Valley and the stay in Kelowna in favour of an additional night in Lake Louise or Banff! Tour pace was hectic but it ensured we saw everything! The Optional Excursions were all flight related and were cancelled due to weather conditions so our rating is not really a reflection of the quality! Our tour guide Nancy and driver Owen were wonderful ...read more!
