This trip is a wonderful tour with stunning scenery along the entire way, some of the places visited are amazing to see and experience and has made me want to revisit Canada in a future time. This was my first Intrepid tours trip and I must say that the tour leader (Heather) really set a high bar for the other tour leaders, she was amazing at what she did and made the trip a fantastic experience.

Opportunity to see and experience natural environment and meet locals. Some on tour were socially isolated due to lack of cohesion and interaction in the travelling group. More social involvement by tour leader would have helped enjoyment by all

A really fantastic, activity filled trip. The scenery is absolutely stunning, and the rockies are outstanding. Our tour leader Heather was amazing at filling us in on the history of each place and had a huge amount of energy/enthusiasm which was contagious. There are some long days of travel, and you only stop in each place for no more than 2 nights so expect to be tired some evenings but it is absolutely worth it!
