Customer Reviews

The hotels were in excellent locations and most were of...

7th September 2017
Mr Keith Evans

The hotels were in excellent locations and most were of a very good standard. The long drives from USA to Canada and back took away a lot of time. Although the itinerary was very full it may be better to either stay in the USA or Canada and build a tour in each country separately. Unfortunately, sickness throughout the coach spoilt the full enjoyment at some of the venues.
