14 Day Majesty of the Rockies reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Truly Majestic Rockies”
- 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 cancelled due to weather conditions so our rating is not really a reflection of the quality! Our tour guide Nancy and driver Owen were wonder...read more

“Wonderful tour in Rockies”
- 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.”
- NSW, Australia Jul 2017 2 Helpful Votes

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.

“Majesty of the Rockies”
- VIC, Australia Jun 2016 3 Helpful Votes

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 days, and we had a lovely almost private tour for two days with one other couple, our Tour Director and Coach Driver.
