Driver/guide could not have been more informative and helpful providing an outstanding experience for us - when we last "saw" Lake Louise it was covered by 8 feet of snow, so has been an ambition of ours to see it properly for 4 years - mission accomplished, thank you.

The Canadian National Parks were awesome ! The bus tour was somewhat unorganized and did not use the time efficiently. A lot of waiting to get all passengers on for the day and handling of tickets and hotel checkin could have been done more efficiently. Hotels were modest but nice and we had free time in the evenings. The bus was initially late on our first day and there was no help in terms of direction of where to safely park our vehicle while on the tour.

Kerry was an excellent tour host, she knew the property well and was able to entertain us with stories along the tour. We visited four restaurants and a chef from each came out to talk to us. This was the highlight for me, to hear their passion and love of their establishments. They explained the uniqueness of their place and about our food sample. What impressed me most was the challenge Fairmont has given for a zero waste operation. Each chef spoke to eat with eagerness and delight at their creativity to accomplish this. The food was amazing at each different stop. The drinks were also very good, but could have been better if they included alcohol.
