"We are in love with Canada"

Thank you enormously for the fabulous holiday you put in place for us. Everything went smoothly and the hotels were great. The Fairmont at Jasper were amazing - upgraded us, provided champagne and strawberries for our anniversary! Our favourite hotel was probably the Magnolia in Victoria which was just lovely - beautifully presented and such friendly and helpful staff. We are in love with Canada and would love to go back - the Rockies were literally awesome, and we also really enjoyed the buzz of vancouver and victoria. It all went far too quickly and hopefully we can return and do it all again! If so, I would not hesitate to come back to you and will recommend you to anyone I can.
