Our Un-Cruise was fantastic, we were so pleased we went with them. We enjoyed the kayaking and shore walks, and everything else about the cruise – they really look after you so well. We saw loads of whales, some seals, sea lions and a few bears and mountain goats. We also got to see the Northern Lights one night which was wonderful and such a bonus that we didn’t expect to see. There were 8 Australians on our boat, 2 New Zealanders and the rest American. Everyone was really nice and friendly and we enjoyed making some new friends.
Well, we are back from Canada and Alaska, and just wanted to thank you for helping us to have a fantastic holiday. All the arrangements worked perfectly, the hotels were all good, and we had no trouble anywhere. The driving went smoothly, no scrapes or accidents!
Seriously we've had a good time - Janene has loved it, I'm a bit of a cynic and could have done without a few things. Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel was fabulous, the room was a bit small, but I understand why. Once again we got Fairmont Gold - we did have a magnificent view from our window - Bow River, golf course to one side and mountains at the back - hard to beat. Also the gondola ride and view @ top was great.Enjoyed Jasper - the Crimson was perfectly placed. The Sundog tour was also great, the guide, a young woman, really knew her stuff.

You organised the most perfect holiday for us – the accommodation was great, the timing was spot on and even the bears put on the most amazing show [at the] Great Bear Lodge…Marg and Tom came out with us on the first nights viewing and we counted 17 bears (some may have doubled up though). Every viewing we saw bears – even 4 close encounters where the bears walked about 2 metres from us – amazing.Thanks for all your help over the last 4 years with our holidays.

Sadly we have arrived at our departure date. We have had beautiful sunny weather in Victoria and our room at the Inn on Laurel Point is stunning. Did a whale watching trip yesterday and spent the first 2 hours surrounded by one of the resident orca pods....amazing!!!!The boat tour through Kenai Fjords was spectacular and even the captain and crew commented on how amazing it was for that time of the year in Seward to have such fine weather and calm seas. We saw lots of wildlife on the water, including a couple of humpback whales and the close view of the glacier was worth the trip all by itself.
Loved the Alaska train and the overnight on the Canadian VIA.We had great weather - only one day rain at Denali National Park the whole trip.Thank you for your organisation to make a trip a successful and memorable one.
The trip was fantastic and everything we wanted it to be. We had some great experiences and come home with life-long memories.Thanks to you for the hard work, and professional expertise, in putting together such a memorable itinerary for us all. We were particularly pleased with the smoothness of the travel process. All the vouchers you prepared for us were accepted without question and your travel trips you included with the itinerary were invaluable.
