What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

The scenery was amazingly beautiful. We saw bears and a grey whale. We were also fortunate to see Orcas breaching in front of the ferry from Victoria to Vancouver. Morraine Lake and Lake Louise were highlights too.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Looking down a crevasse on the Athabascar Glacier trusting the local guide to hold my hand!

Tour Leader Name

Audrey-Anne

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Fabulous Audrey-Anne's picnics were such a surprise each day. How she handled all the responsibility of our tour was exemplary - young herself she knew how to handle a mixed age range of people from all backgrounds.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Read all the small print of the tour, make sure it is what YOU want and then enjoy all the varied opportunities as they occur - arrange an extra day off work at the end in order to sort out the jetlag.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

This was our 15th Explore trip and definitely one of the best.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

All of it. But especially being very close to otters, sea otters and whales, black and grizzly bears, many other cute furry things and striking birds . What an amazing and beautiful country full of polite and charming people with beautifull road manners, a country where pedestrians come first. Even when the country was devastated by a once in a hundred years flood problem they treated visitors with kindness and courtesy.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Brilliant. Jo was probably the best of the many we have had with Explore. Her knowledge of Canadian wildlife, history and geography added much to our experience. The unforseen flooding that crippled the country, cutting roads and transport, was dealt with in a prompt and professional manner ensuring that we missed little from our itinerary and we boarded our departure plane clean and rested in plenty of time; 12 out of 10 for the tour leader.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Join in everything. Walk all the trails; even trying the highest ones. Be aware of the cultural system of tipping for service.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

The van/minibus was ok but a slightly bigger one would be better.

Our Response

We have noted your comment regarding the transportation van and we appreciate that this was a source of dissatisfaction for you.  The vehicles we use in the countries we visit are locally owned and operated and facilities cannot always be guaranteed. This having been said in view of your comments we are happy to discuss the matter with our local agents to determine whether it is possible to locate a bus with functioning windows for future groups.

It’s great you got to have lunch at the Plein of 6 Glaciers in the glorious sunshine and we can imagine the view must have been amazing.
