She had covered and explained in great details about points to see, joking at many occasions. Waterton, Banff and Jasper were all worth visiting. Wish had more time to see city of Calgary. Weather was generally cooperative except on two occasions it rained. Will recommend to anyone without hesitation.

Our Tour Manager Sandra and Bus Driver Roy were fantastic and provided great insight into the culture and traditions of this area and went out of their way to get the Tour Group to experience them. The accommodations provided exceeded our expectations, the food was excellent and the scenery breathtaking. The people of this area of Canada were delightful, friendly and very engaging as were the members of our Tour Group.

Our group really bonded in the short time we were together. The hotels were strategically located in the center of town within walking distance of restaurants and shopping.

    Words cannot describe what an amazing trip we had. The beauty of the Canadian Rockies is indescribable. You have to experience it to know what I'm talking about. The choice of hotels was perfect and the excursions made the trip a wonderful adventure. Our tour manager, Robyn McGregor, was exceptional in doing her job. She was so professional in that she became our advisor, our "Mom", our protector, our friend. We were so blessed to have her as our tour manager. Gate 1 has a valuable employee. It is obvious she loves her job and we were the recipients of that love. Kudos for Robyn! Our bus driver, Matthew, was a great driver. He drove that big bus with such confidence. A NASCAR driver could not have done a better job. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we were comfortable and the bus was immaculate. Plus, he had an adorable personality. Again, Gate 1 has a valuable employee. We are so glad we chose the Canadian Rockies Tour to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Thank you, John, for all your help. Look forward to your expertise with another trip in the near future. By the way, our friends, Buddy and Brenda, had a wonderful time.

    The trip was wonderful ... an amazingly beautiful part of our world and the weather was perfect! In particular, our guide, Tom, made it all the more interesting as he is a retired earth science teacher -- he taught us so much about the rivers, mountains, glaciers and trees and how they all tie together. He also made it fun and engaging. We saw quite a bit of wild life. Of course, as in past trips, I met some wonderful people along the way. I was very impressed with Canada in general, and the people, who are most friendly. The people there obviously enjoy and protect their environment. It was very clean. Our hotels and meals, for the most part, were also very good. I look forward to another Gate 1 adventure!

    Our trip to the Canadian Rockies was terrific. Our guide, Tom, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the geological features of the areas we visited and about Canada in general. Tom had a great sense of humor, very personable, very helpful / considerate of our comfort needs and a great ambassador for Canada. Tom started every morning on the bus with a quote and a song. On the first day of our tour, when Tom said he would do this, the group was a bit skeptical. After hearing the first quote and song, we knew his verbal and musical commentary would be fun and thought provoking as well. My favorite quote described Canada as our attic ... you don't know what beautiful things you will find until you go up there to explore. The itinerary included many stops at points of interest and experiences including the gondola at Sulphur Mountain, the cruise around Spirit Island on Maligne Lake and the Maligne Canyon, the historic hotels built by the Canadian Railway and many, many wonderful vistas. We enjoyed spectacular scenery every day and we enjoyed every minute of this adventure. We were very fortunate to have Tom as our guide. He managed our bus full of 41 travelers very well including the unexpected mechanical problems of the bus that caused a short delay one morning. We appreciate all that Tom did to make this visit to the Canadian Rockies very special for my husband and me. Thank you for great service.

    We enjoyed our trip very much. We learned a great deal about the ecology, history and culture of Nova Scotia and surrounding provinces in Canada. It was great to have Karen, a guide who is from Halifax, as she is very invested in sharing her knowledge of the area. Karen kept us supplied with hand-outs, maps, brochures, and detailed daily itineraries.  I really liked that she gave us maps to draw on so we would know what our route was when we were on the bus. Some of the bus rides to get from place to place can be long, so it was nice that she had informative and entertaining DVDs, or local music to play for us, as well as talking to us about the area we were visiting. What I appreciate about Gate 1 trips is how much I learn about an area in a short time. The itinerary was varied and we had plenty of free time to explore. My highlights were the Fort at Louisbourg, The Bay of Fundy and Hopewell Rocks, Peggy's Cove, Cape Breton Highlands, (great scenery), the sail on The Amoeba on Bras d' Or Lakes. I have traveled and hiked in the highlands in Scotland in the Western Hebrides, so visiting Nova Scotia and learning more about the area has always been a dream of mine, and the Gate 1 trip did not disappoint. The welcome dinner at a local pub was great, with lobster and mussels. Keep it in the itinerary! Karen is a great guide. She is very upbeat, helpful, and worked very hard to keep us engaged and comfortable. Thanks.

    Our trip to the Canadian Rockies was fantastic; and our guide, Diana, the best ever (and we have had some great ones!). The itinerary was well planned and executed perfectly. Diana never missed an opportunity to educate and amuse us at every opportunity. She made sure that everyone had a good and comfortable stay in the hotels and the bus. Water, tea, coffee, stops enroute were very well planned and always in an area that provided for "choices" in the local economy. We enjoyed our seat rotation which gave us an opportunity to meld as a group. Our driver Claude was steady and helpful, a real asset! They both gave us their personal experiences from past visits and interesting facts about the places.

    The scenery was spectacular and their unique little side trips made it a vacation to remember! Unfortunately the bears decided to take the same 10 days off.

    Again we cannot say enough.

    The trip was wonderful! Taking a tour bus is the way to go and Robyn was a fantastic guide!She was so sweet, helpful, knowledgable, and pleasant to be with. The scenery and places we stopped were spectacular. Gate 1 was a terrific company to travel with and we will definitely use their services again.

    It was a wonderful experience. It was well planned and executed to perfection. Our travel guide was a wonderful lady. She made sure that everyone had a good and comfortable stay in the hotels and the bus. Water, tea, coffee, stops enroute were very well planned. Isabelle and Don made us feel a part of the whole gang. They gave us their personal experiences from past visits and interesting facts about the places. The driver Don was steady and safe.

    We thank Gate 1 for this Trip.

    Our trip was the best trip we've ever taken. This was because of our tour manager Annick.

    Annick's knowledge and expertise was incredible! It was only surpassed by her passion and concern for all of the members of our group. There was never any time where she wasn't available. And honestly don't know if she even had time to get some sleep while conducting the tour, her enthusiasm was contagious.

    Thank you and Annick for an incredible experience!

    We had a fabulous trip, thanks to Annick and cooperative weather. I have to say that it was one of my best trips ever! My fellow travelers were very friendly, and the scenery in the Canadian Rockies was just spectacular.
