"My first kudos goes to Canada By Design for giving us the flexibility."

Well, I am still amazed that we were able to get accommodations, Fairmont, train, etc. at last moment... and the way we were able to customize our trip drive/train and explore on our own was awesome!! So, my first kudos goes to Canada By Design for giving us the flexibility. Of course, I adored working with you!!! As far as the trip highlights....I think Jasper was our favorite town, our favorite hike was through the snow at Lake Louise to the Glacier Tea house, our favorite hotel was the Fairmont, and we really enjoyed the train ride/sleeper cabin. The lodging was all great, but Tekarra Lodge's location on the river bank was sooooooo cool! Plus, we enjoyed not being downtown Jasper, and food there was really yummy! Thanks again Jennifer!

"Being a repeat customer attests to the quality"

My planner this year was Paulina. I was very happy with her from start to finish. I did the same type of trip last year to Vancouver Sunshine Coast and Island and was very happy with the travel designer I had then too. Same with another trip earlier was to the Atlantic provinces. Being a repeat customer attests to the quality. On every trip we were very pleased with the outcome and the one or two tiny glitches that occurred were handled promptly and to a satisfactory conclusion. Being older our self drive touring days are probably over but I would definitely recommend this to anyone - but especially to young parents with families. It is a wonderful way to see the country and the team at Canada by Design seem very very competent in planning it out for maximum benefit. Thank you Paulina - I appreciate the extra care you took.

"The tours and activities she chose for us were spot on!"

We were a group of 7 from New Zealand. Jennifer organised our trip through two of our group who then liaised with the rest of our team. We did a self drive from Vancouver & stopped for two nights at Whistler, SunPeaks, Jasper, Banff, Calgary including the Stampede, back to Banff to catch the Rocky Mountainer train for two days ending back in Vancouver. Not one problem! The accommodation was perfect at every stop. The tours and activities she chose for us were spot on. Every part of our trip was well thought out and there were no hitches. I cannot praise Canada by Design enough and I speak for all 7 of our group. Thank you so much.
