"we had a truly wonderful time"
Our visit to Canada has, sadly, been and gone too quickly. We had an absolutely wonderful time in Vancouver, Victoria, and all points to Banff. The travel arrangements were excellent. The hotels were all good and the various tours etc were again excellent. In addition to seeing numerous bears, eagles, the occasional whale etc., we were amazed at the size, the wilderness and peace of it all, and the Rockies were....the Rockies. People were incredibly and genuinely friendly and welcoming. So, many, many thanks for making the arrangements for us. we had a truly wonderful time...
