What our clients are saying about their journeys through Western Canada
“Hassle free holiday”
It was a hassle free holiday we had after a long time. The tour was exactly what we expected. We are really happy with how it was organised. We feel that we wouldn’t be able to cover what we saw during the tour if we were on our own. Thanks so much for that. The Tour Leader Jody and the driver Peter were two wonderful people who were so knowledgeable, professional and lovely to be with. We would not hesitate to book another holiday with Global Journeys. Everything was so precisely done, except ...read more one hotel accommodation. That was the Delta hotel by Marriott, the room given to us was soooo noisy due to a faulty air conditioner, and our night's sleep was ruined. It was like a train going inside the room. The Holland America Cruise; it would have been ideal if the cost was quoted including the compulsory gratuities, so that we could do our budgeting easier. Food was nice compared to our previous cruises. Cruise entertainment was not so impressive especially one comedian out of the two, and apart from that everything was professionally done.
“A trip from gardens to glacier ”
This was my fourth trip with Trafalgar. This time I travelled with a friend. I chose to travel in the summer to enjoy the Butchart Gardens in all its glory. I was not disappointed as the day was sunny and bright and the beauty and scents around me were to be thoroughly enjoyed. Photos will bring me back many memories of the day. This is one of the highlights of the tour for sure. Another highlight was the chance to walk on a glacier, a first for me. Despite tentative steps on the slippery path, the ...read more sight was awesome and the majesty of the surrounding mountains almost overpowering. Each place we visited during the nine days was unique. Our hotels were very central to surrounding shops and restaurants with the exception of the Kamloops accommodation. Unfortunately, though this was a very comfortable accommodation, it was in the middle of nowhere with not really anywhere much to walk and explore. Our hotel in Victoria was amazing... a suite with so much room. In all, the bedrooms in the hotels were enormous with clean, modern facilities. Exception being the Sawridge Inn in Jasper. This hotel was not very well maintained. Our tour guide was not the best one I have encountered on previous trips with Trafalgar as the information shared with us was rather confusing leading to two of us becoming lost on our first day! Our driver was very experienced and I felt safe at all times in his care. I look forward to travelling again with Trafalgar in the future. I am usually a solo traveller and have always felt looked after.
We thoroughly enjoyed our coach tour of the Rockies. Booking online with Global Journeys was very easy and efficient. On the tour our guide Dan was very knowledgeable, not only about the area in which we were travelling, but he also gave us lots of information about Canada generally, all the while keeping us entertained with music, DVDs and the occasional quiz. Our driver Keith was courteous, helpful and always cheerful, but most importantly, a careful driver. We loved how this tour had four ...read more free days which broke up the routine of early starts and sometimes long days on the coach. Those long days though were well paced with frequent stops. The accommodation was excellent with one exception being the Sandman in Vancouver. Some guests had good rooms, others not. Ours was small with no fridge or microwave. The air conditioning was noisy. The location of the hotel was good, however. We fully recommend this Cosmos coach tour.
“The amazing Rockies and Alaska”
The trip surpassed all my expectations. Every day was a new and beautiful part of Canada that got better and better. The Cosmos tour was fantastic. It showed us so many hidden gems and I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience western Canada and Alaska.
