Ms Winsor - Travelled Rocky Mountaineer
"The Rocky Mountaineer was superb"
Everything went to plan and ran smoothly with planes, cars, trains and accommodation. The Rocky Mountaineer was superb and a great experience, so well organised and such good service on board. The selection of hotels we ended up with was an eclectic mix. Cathedral Lodge in Field was outstanding and by far the best in terms of location, style and service. Just out of this world although the Black Fish Lodge experience was equally good although quite different. Lovely people there who took good care of us with amazing wild life spotting opportunities along with the fishing.
I can’t thank you enough for your patience in the planning process getting the package together and trying to match to our specific requirements. You always understood the brief and were quick in following up options and so on. Not an inexpensive holiday for sure but so memorable. It will be very hard to beat.
