Our travel specialist was Ms. Kaitlin Fitzpatrick. She was wonderful. She fully explained the trip to us, was a great help with our airline tickets and stayed in touch with us for months prior to the trip to make sure we understood everything and answered any questions we had.

The tour guide was excellent. Very informative with a great sense of humor. There was never a lull during the trip. We were shown all the highlights of the Canadian Rockies. All the accommodations were excellent. Great value for the money.

We would without a doubt, travel with Trafalga again. Your guides and Drivers are professional, courteous, and caring people. Our lodgings were exceptional, along with a complete breakfast. The itinerary was well planned out, with just the right amount of break In between. The two presentations we had were top notch....a naturalist and a Mounty, both knowledge and humor were a part of their entertainment. Every detail seemed to be well covered. Many thanks!

My husband and I went on a river raft trip down the river Near Jasper. It was an easy float trip,with just enough ripples in the Water to make things interesting. Our guides put us at ease, but still made the trip fun. Everyone was smiling from start to finish. Can't ask for More.
