18 Oct October 18, 2016 by Vision Travel in Active Travel, Escorted Tours, Group Tours, Travelling With Vision Vision’s exclusive Western Canada tour on Rocky Mountaineer was a huge success. Take some of the world’s most stunning scenery, add in a hassle-free itinerary where every detail was taken care of, add the friendly service of your own Vision Travel escort and you have the recipe for some wonderful memories! That was the experience 62 lucky travellers enjoyed in September as they experienced some of Canada’s most iconic sights including Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff and Vancouver, and took the legendary Rocky Mountaineer Train. The eight-day tour started in Calgary and ended in Vancouver. “The scenery was amazing,” recalls Kevin Lichty of Vision’s Ancaster, Ont., agency, who escorted the group. “There were times you simply didn’t know where to look – amazing mountains, the glacier walk, the wildlife including elk and a couple of playful young bears. We truly had some awesome experiences.” What the guests also enjoyed were the many special Vision Travel touches: luggage handling throughout – so it just “magically” appeared in your room; pre-paid gratuities; hotels upgraded to those famed Canadian landmarks such as the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise; no ticket line-ups at attractions; and a gala farewell dinner. Plus of course Kevin’s assistance in ensuring all went smoothly! One of the group members, Janice Yermus of Thornhill, Ont., can’t say enough about the trip. “The incredible scenery, the train with such eager and friendly and informative staff, the glacier—and, above all, having everything done for us! My husband especially wanted to do this trip and I’m so glad we did. Now I’m telling everyone how beautiful Canada is!” Kevin adds, “One of the most common questions from the group was ‘‘Where are we heading on our next group trip?’ – everyone had such a great time.” We are always adding new and exclusive Vision group departures to some of the most appealing destinations in the world! So far for 2017 we have groups planned to Iceland, the Galapagos and Tahiti and the Society Islands. Ask your Vision Travel Advisor for more details.
