“A trip from gardens to glacier ”
- WA, Australia Jul 2019 1 Helpful Vote View Photo

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,...read more

“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
