REVIEWS

Thanks for a great holiday. The Rockies - awesome, Victoria- beautiful. Whistler- magic. All the itinerary was excellent. Well done team!!

Mark Sydney, Australia

We LOVED Canada and look forward to coming back and doing the same route in the spring or autumn. In fact we would even consider doing it again in winter as it was so stunningly beautiful. After booking the trip and advising the date we wanted, I was very impressed with Karen's professionalism and prompt service, nothing was too much trouble. When we requested things from her, all the information given to us was accurate and up to date. I don't know how I will ever thank you all at Canada by Design for everything you did for us and making a trip of a life time surpass our wildest expectations!

My wife and I had 10 days on Vancouver Island and the Rockies organised by Jennifer. It was excellent. The accommodation was very good, some of it apartment type which allowed freedom to do a bit of our own cooking. The included activities were first rate and with two nights at each stop the whole trip was very relaxed. Everything went smoothly. I highly recommend this company, They will tailor a trip to meet individual needs.
