Summer Rockies Classic Tour

Summer Rockies Classic Tour

The Canadian Rocky Mountains; nothing is more iconic of our country than these. This is one of our original and most popular tours with overnight stays in Revelstoke, the Town of Banff, and Valemount. These three towns epitomize the landscapes and cultures of three distinct areas of Western Canada.

It also includes amazing sightseeing stops in the Okanagan Valley and the Rocky Mountains, including gorgeous Canadian turquoise lakes, such as one of the most photographed lakes in the world; Lake Louise.

We also offer two amazing optional activities. You can have the chance to walk on a glacier at the Columbia Icefields. This is a once in a lifetime experience that makes you realize just how fragile our planet is. You can also choose to take a gondola ride up Sulphur Mountain in Banff. At the top, you will be treated to 360-degree panoramas of the Rocky Mountains and a fantastic view over the Town of Banff and the gorgeous turquoise Bow River.

Carefully selected standard hotel accommodations are included in the tour price, but you also have the option to upgrade to Premium hotels in Revelstoke at the Sutton Place Resort and in Valemount at the Best Western Plus.

A dream tour

Enzo W

I had a wonderful trip to Rocky Mountains through the company. The accommodations were well located and some of the nicest in the areas we visited. The landscapes were stunning. Our guide was excellent. She gave us a complete overview of the history and culture of the cities and countryside. She was always available to us, and made great restaurant choices for us for the meals that were not included in our itinerary. Those meals that were included were at some of the best restaurants available. Our driver who was also always available to us, navigated the roads both within the cities and without, with care and knowledge of the areas through which we traveled. We would not hesitate to recommend this travel company to anyone wishing to tour British Columbia and Alberta.

Excellent Tour!

Michelle

I had an excellent time on this tour. The scenery was fantastic, our tour guides, Jude and Angie, were great, the amount of knowledge they had regarding everywhere we went and also about Canada in general was really quite extraordinary! It was delivered in such a way that you never felt bored and there was the right amount so that we were informed but it was not too much. The whole tour was very well organised – keeping 50+ people on track is no mean feat! The hotels were good and the coach was comfortable. Our driver Tammy, was also great – some of the roads looked pretty tricky but she never missed a beat and always cheerful!! I came away with great memories and a lot more knowledge about Canada. Thank you for an awesome experience!!!

Amazing Tour of the Rockies!

Sarmelba

I did the 4D3N Summer Classic Tour of the Rockies and it was amazing! Our guide Chris was great; informative, funny and good at managing such a big group of us. Our driver was pretty nice as well, and we got to all our places safely and on time. The hotel accommodation in Revelstoke and Banff were good, with the breakfast buffet at Banff being the highlight. I didn’t quite enjoy the bbq dinner/ranch breakfast as the food wasn’t great. Overall though, a lovely trip!

Unforgettable tour through the most awe inspiring scenery.

We have the highest praise for this tour. Starting from the itinerary, scenic spot stops, hotel stays, safety, comfort and fun during the bus ride we would give this tour a ten on ten! Our special thanks to Jude, Angie and Tammy, who made the tour a totally fun and enjoyable experience. Their dedication, organization and attention to detail deserves the highest praise. Jude and Angie, your “baby bears” loved the care and attention you gave us. interesting stories and information that you shared with us during the ride made our trip more meaningful and memorable. Tammy you are a hero for driving us around dawn to dusk through those tough mountain roads. If I were to go to Mars, I would definitely love to have these three young ladies in charge! Thank you all for a trip we will never forget.
