Beautiful Canada / Alaska 2 , QLD, Australia, Sep 2019
The Rocky Mountaineer, Gold Leaf, journey was sensational, very well organised & run. Our tour director, Doug, was excellent, very personable and knowledgeable of the areas travelled.

Our Guide was very knowledgeable, my only complaint was we booked 2 excursions & because of the times we couldn't spend ...read more as much time as we would of liked.

Spirit of the Rockies is ideal   1 , WA, Australia, May 2019
We travelled at the beginning of May and loved it as there was plenty of snow on the mountains and nowhere we went was crowded. The accommodation was excellent, extremely comfortable and centrally located. Our tour leader, Vedrana was also excellent as was our driver Jon. Everything was run very efficiently.

Highlights were the Rocky Mountaineer, ...read more seeing bears, walking on a Glacier and a visit to a Squamish Centre. On the cruise Skagway was charming and anchoring in Glacier Bay was stunning.
