"we managed to see bears and whales"
I just wanted to thank you for organising our Canada holiday for us. We had the most amazing time and have completely fallen in love with the country. The accommodation you booked for us was perfect and everything went extremely smoothly. All of the activities were brilliant and we managed to see bears and whales and many other things. The people of Canada are very friendly and helpful as well. We will definitely be going back at some point in the future.
