"The journey you picked out was super."

Many thanks for another fantastic holiday. Firstly the wedding of our youngest son in Vancouver was a great day for us all. Everything went well and was very enjoyable. Thanks again for selecting a well balanced holiday. The car Jeep Grant Cherokee was only a week old and took all our luggage. The journey you picked out was super. Summit Lodge in Whistler was excellent. The guest house by the lake in Clearwater was one of the best we have ever stayed. Sandie and John were excellent hosts. The rooms and breakfast were fantastic. Wells Grey Provincial Park, is a real gem with fantastic waterfalls and great walks. Jasper was unfortunately a bit damp, but we managed to go on the sky tram after the rain and got some great views. On the way to emerald lake we went on the Brewsters Glacier tour which we all enjoyed. Emerald Lake lodge with the lake view was excellent. I think the views were better than Lake Louise!

Thanks again and look forward in using you again.
