Truly Majestic Rockies 0 , WA, Australia, Sep 2019
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 ...read more 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!
Wonderful tour in Rockies 1 , NSW, Australia, Jun 2018
The tour itinerary was well planned. I liked our visit Whistler, Victoria and Banff. The scenery in the Rockies was impressive. The hotels were excellent, in particular The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Hannah did a good job in helping me to book the tour.
Overall the trip was wonderful. 2 , NSW, Australia, Jul 2017
Overall the trip was wonderful. We saw some amazing scenery and learnt so much. We were disappointed in the "luxury gold" experience. It did not meet our expectations. We stayed in top hotels but the rooms were certainly not the best. Beautiful countryside. It was quite tiring as it involved a lot of travelling.
Wonderful trip 2 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2016
Very well organized and worry free. Good quality accommodation in great locations. Excellent travel director and efficient booking process through Global Journeys. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
Majesty of the Rockies 3 , VIC, Australia, Jun 2016
My husband and I really enjoyed this trip. Our group was over half Aussies, and everyone got along exceptionally well. Our group was very mature, and at 58 I suspect I was the youngest. Insight delivered what they promised. All but 4 of our group took the Rocky Mountaineer option, and really enjoyed it. I could not justify the additional cost for 2 ...read more days, and we had a lovely almost private tour for two days with one other couple, our Tour Director and Coach Driver.

Meals provided were of a very high standard. The extra legroom in the coach was great. Be prepared for some long days with early starts often though to dinner. We were lucky to see both black and grizzly bears. The weather was quite cool for June, glad we were prepared with plenty of warm clothes.
