What a trip!!!! Karen J. from Canada by Design was amazing in helping us to plan our once in a lifetime trip! Everything was planned perfectly. Thanks to Karen, we stayed in the beautiful Rimrock hotel in Banff- across of the Hot springs and five minutes away from the Gondola. We were picked up for our day trips from our hotel and enjoyed the beauty of the place. In Jasper-Karen suggested to stay at Fairmont Jasper. We LOVED the resort and got a beautiful cabin on the lake. That was an amazing surprise for us! Again the day trips were well organized from A to Z. We finished the trip with a two day ride on the Mountaineer from Jasper to Vancouver (we got the silver leaf and we were so very happy with it). Canada by Design's staff always responded by email of a phone call, also when Karen was away. It was such a relief to know that we could trust Canada by Design before and during our trip.

I used Canada by Design for a trip I took in Oct 2018. They were very good at providing all details of the trip and sending itinerary and tickets and any other information material about the trip. I would Canada by Design for my next trip

We were very pleased with the choice of accommodation for our trip.
The facilities and locale allowed us to do much of our exploring on foot.
We should have mentioned that we are both in our 80’s and found the lack of elevators to be a challenge. However, the staff at all the hotels were right there to assist us with our luggage.
The Lord Nelson in Halifax and the Manoir Victoria in Quebec City were particularly excellent choices because their locale allowed us to cover everything we wanted to see on foot and leave our car parked for the duration of our stay.
Every activity and idea suggested by Discover Canada ended up as a ‘must do’ item; Brier Island Whale Watching, Alexander Graham Bell Museum, The Halifax Citadel, The Louisbourg Fortress just to name a few that should not be missed. We also took the Harbour Hopper in Halifax and toured the Fishermens’ Museum in Lunenburg.
The ‘Magnetic Hill’ in Moncton should not be missed. The weather was not ideal for our trip, but we managed. Canada Day was particularly nasty and, sadly, many events had to be cancelled in the area we were traveling on that day.

The folks at Canada by Design did a great job of helping with our trip to and through the Canadian Rockies, using Le Canadien, a train from Vancouver to Jasper, then small buses with knowledgeable guides from Jasper to Lake Louise, to Banff. We then spent two days on the amazing Rocky back to Vancouver.
Canada by Design was very responsive to emails and texts, and issued revamped itineraries after each change we made.
Highly recommend their staff!

Our trip was amazing thanks to Jules, our Canada by Design representative. We had no problem what so ever, even though out itinerary was complicated and included numerous flights, car rentals, attractions and hotels. I highly recommend this company and gladly give a 5 star rating! Thank you!

I thought I could visit friends in Toronto after seeing my daughter in NYC and, knowing nothing about Toronto googled ‘what to do’ there. The first thing that came up was an ad from Discover Holidays about travelling by train to the Rockies. My immediate thought was ‘yes!’ I liked their proposed itinerary and loved every day of the trip. Via Rail from Toronto to Jasper offered wonderful views, companionable and delicious meals, and a cosy cabin. The amount of water - lakes, rivers, waterfalls - is just about incomprehensible to we Australians and nurtured my spirit. Interesting late night stop at Winnipeg - behind the station is the magnificent Human Rights Museum - wonderful to know it even exists. The hotel stays and wildlife tours in Jasper, Lake Louise and Banff gave me a good introduction to the magnificent Rockies, and all the arrangements fell into place well. The Rocky Mountaineer trip to Vancouver was a dreamlike experience. Travelling by train offers so much more than flying-in-flying-out, and crossing beautiful Canada’s waterways, rocky shield, prairies and mountains was uplifting.

What a great holiday. We did the 17 day Canada’s Great Western Parks self drive holiday from Vancouver to Vancouver. This was a super trip well planned out seeing all the sights we had hoped to see. We had no problems at any of the accommodations and thoroughly enjoyed our time

Karen was Excellent to work with. She was able to customize our trip to exactly what I wanted, making all arrangements and keeping us informed of any changes. I would definitely use Canada by Design again if/when I want to visit Canada again. Everything was perfect and so very easy.

Our trip through Western Canada was as breathtakingly beautiful as we had hoped and the whole experience progressed flawlessly. Our agent was Jasmine Wong and she understood what we wanted and had the expertise to arrange the whole two weeks to perfection. Our trip included a Via train trip, various sightseeing coaches, a flight to Whitehorse and then another to Vancouver, narrow-gauge railway trip to Skagway (utterly fantastic) and a rental car for our time in Whistler, and of course great accommodations throughout as well as side excursions. Our detailed itinerary included all the vouchers and tips and hints for our added enjoyment. We highly recommend their service.

Fantastic trip made possible by the Canada by design
I was very apprehensive when I booked a tour completely online but after talking to the tour guide I felt a bit better but still not sure how this trip was going to turn out.
It was one of the best desicion we made
The train ride through the Rockies from Vancouver to Jasper was a great beginning to a wonderful rest of the holiday.
The stay in Fairmont resorts were just fabulous.
Everything was awesome
Highly recommend this tour company

Recommend travelling by car through the rockies. It gives you an opportunity to meet the locals and see more of the country. Train travel is slow and you don't have the opportunity to see much of the scenery. Canada by design was very helpful with all the information/ Brookings. Take some time to learn how to drive on the right side of the road, and learn some district names.

Review by Keiraxoxo Krpo5 months ago
We had many bumps in the trip booked by Canada by Design. First our hotel accommodations were not what we requested during the first leg of our trip. Then we also had problems with seating on the two legs of our train journey. This was after we had confirmed and reconfirmed our preferences and requests. We were told that they were able to meet all our requests. I would NOT use Canada by Design (Discover Holidays) again for travel arrangements.

Excellent trip. WE opted for a car trip since we have two active teens. Canada by Design was wonderful to work with! They adjusted one of their self-drive tours to include night SUP, sea Kayaking and bear/whale watching. It was a wonderful trip

We booked a trip in Eastern Canada by rail last fall. It was a wonderful, well-designed package, with minor adjustments to accommodate some special requests we had made.
