“Absolutely Spectacular”
- QLD, Australia Jun 2018 2 Helpful Votes View Photo

This tour was indeed spectacular! Canada certainly has fantastic places to visit. This tour was well organised, the accommodation was good and our Tour Director was great. We visited so many beautiful places, but we never felt rushed, or that we missed anything. We often had options to be as active or sedate as we wanted and the travel times were kept as comfortable as possible. We highly recommend this tour and Trafalgar. We plan to do more of their tours.

Kerry and myself really loved this spectacular Rockies tour, this is our third Trafalgar tour and we loved each one, we totally enjoyed walking on the glazier with the snow falling and drinking baileys, each day was special with different activities, tour guide and bus driver were wonderful, would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you Trafalgar.

“Excellent well planned tour of Canadian Rockies”
- TAS, Australia Jun 2016 1 Helpful Vote

Our tour was excellent, our Director Nathan and Coach Driver Dave, what a Team they were. We became one big family with our other tourist friends on the coach it was hard to say goodbye. The Trafalgar motto is SIMPLY THE BEST and each day Nathan and Dave would live up to that standard. Also would play the song. Now we think of Canada and all the new friends we met when we hear it back home. The accommodation was very clean and comfy beds close to everything in the area. We will travel with Trafalgar...read more

“Great time on our tour with Trafalgar”
- VIC, Australia Jun 2015

We had a great time on our tour with Trafalgar. Our coach driver Tim was amazing keeping us entertained and he is the best coach driver I have ever seen. Nathan our tour director did a fantastic job as well. The Canadian Rockies are incredible. We would recommend Trafalgar tours to anyone. This was my second tour with Trafalgar and now we are planning a third. Hannah was brilliant to deal with from Global Journeys and will definitely be booking through Global Journeys again.

“First time and extremely impressed”
- SA, Australia Jun 2015

This is our first ever tour using a tour guide and touring firm. We were extremely impressed. We had a fantastic tour guide (Nathan Scott), he knew his country (Canada) and shared it with us and we enjoyed every moment. Life on the bus was fun and we stopped at every chance to either see a lake or falls or animal, even if it was not included on the tour. I commend both Tim the coach driver and Nathan for showing us the best time. The tourists who travelled with us were also a lot of fun and our...read more
