Explore five National Parks – from the inside, out... craggy peaks, buffalo jumps, stunt-riding cowboys and vintage “Jammer” buses set the tone throughout the timberlands of the Canadian Rockies and Montana’s Glacier National Park... Kootenay’s canyons and hot springs... alpine vistas and glaciers along the Icefields Parkway... a cruise on ice-blue mountain lakes... a ride in an Ice Explorer on Athabasca Glacier... luxury mountain resorts in Banff National Park, Jasper National Park and at Lake Louise... and so much more.  Kick up your heels at a Wild West welcome dinner where cowboy stunt riders and Calgary fiddlers raise the bar in uplifting live entertainment.

5* Most enjoyable
Had an opportunity to visit many places of unexpected beauty. A truly unique trip. Liked everything about it. Seeing glaciers and Glacier park was most enjoyable. Tauck did a good job on the tour and the arrangement. Only improvement might be to spend 2 nights at Lake Louise. This would improve the trip by having one less day of pack and unpack. Visiting Glacier Park by open bus.

5* Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
I've been traveling since 1988 & this was the best escorted trip ever. A wonderful itinerary to enjoy all the beauty of the area. Nothing was left out. And our Tauck Director was the best tour guide I have ever had. A wonderful lady with incredible knowledge and love of the Rockies. Seeing Lake Louise.

4* Stunning Canadian Rockies and Glacier, too
We were expecting gorgeous mountain vistas on this, our 7th Tauck adventure. Due to the smoke drift from 550 fires in British Columbia, some of the mountain views were hazy. However, the information on Glaciers, crystal clear lakes, and mountain range formation and the spectacular scenery were amazing, All lodges were unique and very comfortable. Getting up at sunrise at our Many Glacier Lodge balcony to watch the beautiful reflection of the mountains on the lake and then spotting a moose come from the woods. With binoculars we were able to watch it swim across and emerge on the opposite shore. Everyday seemed to be filled with truly stunning scenery.

5* Canadian Rockies - July, 2017
This was my 6th Tauck Tour and it was great! Our tour guide had a lot to do with it. She was so knowledgeable, prepared and concerned about all of her guests. Before each stop, she had a thorough list of all of the activities available and how to access them. The hotels were so convenient and the food was awesome. Beautiful scenery. On a side hike, we encountered a black bear - about 25 feet away. It was an adventure and gave us a story to tell when we got home.

5* Great views everyday
First of all, our tour director was absolutely the best. What high energy, enthusiasm and caring for everyone on the trip. All hotels were great with all having either great views or great surroundings. The activities were planned well and were what we come to expect from Tauck trips. The stop from Jasper to Banff for lunch could be deleted. Head Smashed In Buffalo, Views at Lake Louise, Red Jammer tour, Athabasca Glacier, all the hotels. Lake Moraine local guide... The Best!!

4* Awesome Canadian Rockies and GNP
Great trip, views outstanding. Rob White outstanding Director. Pace was good, Fairmont Hotels outstanding and Tauck room locations offered breathtaking views. Glacier Nat'l Park accommodations good and described realistically, they are old buildings. Need 3 nites at Jasper and/or Banff to allow for town and wilderness exploration activities. 2 Highlights: Walking on the Columbia Glacier and morning at Jasper Park Lodge when wife got up early to view sunrise and came face to face with 6 grazing elk outside our room !

5* Canadian Rockies
We can't stop telling people about this fantastic trip to one of the most spectacular regions of North America. This place is so memorable we are considering a repeat. We enjoyed the way the meals were setup where we dined every evening with someone different on the tour. Boat ride and hiking around Many Glacier Hotel. The ride out to the glacier at the Columbia Ice Fields. Staring at the Canadian Rockies and our free time to roam in Banff.

5* Tour Director Rocks!!
Although this was our first Tauck tour, we signed on because of Tauck's reputation for high-end service, hotels, meals and itinerary and we were not disappointed. That said, ultimately, this type of vacation is all about the Tour Director and we were served the gold standard. We will travel with this Tour Director again!! A walk on the Columbia Icefield!!

5* Canadian Rockies
From Calgary to Glacier National Park to Lake Louise- Jasper- Banff, the trip was superb. I cannot come up with any criticism, other than we could of stayed another night in Jasper because of the diverse recreational opportunities. The reason the trip was so flawless can be attributed to the efforts of our guide- Rob White and to a lesser extent No singular moment, the entire trip the jaw dropping views.

3* Scenery is Beautiful On Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
The scenery on the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park tour is beautiful.The bus rides can be long and it helps to have an excellent bus driver, which we did.Unfortunately, the tour director was average at best.The accommodations were very good.Breakfast was a buffet most days-we are not buffet fans. The excursion at Lake Moraine was the best we have ever had on any trip. Very entertaining and informative.Also, loved the Jasper Fairmont Lodge. The cabins are great.

5* I was overcome by all the beautiful sites
First of all, I did two trips, back to back with only one day between. Rushmore, Custer and Crazy Horse...Yellowstone and the Tetons. Second trip, Glacier National and the Canadian Rockies. So much beauty and history! GREAT drivers and Tour Directors. Seeing the Tetons rise up in the distance on the first trip. Then the last night, choking on a piece of prime rib and having the dear, terrified tour director and a doctor perform the Heimlich maneuver on me. (successfully!) Second trip, Seeing Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and the Canadian Rockies and all the surrounding beauty.Trip(s) of a lifetime

4* Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
Despite rain, sleet, hail and snow, we had a wonderful trip! Tauck has put together a trip that we could never have done ourselves. We saw beautiful places, and met interesting people that will stay in our memories for ever. It was evident that our tour guide has an outstanding knowledge of Canada. Her pride in her country was contagious! We are big National Park supporters so it was wonderful to visit and stay in all those historic lodges both in Glacier and the Canadian national parks. Our favorite day was the ride from Lake Louise to Jasper. The turquoise glacier water was mesmerizing. Along the way, the Athabasca Falls were breathtaking and terrifying.

1* Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
This was our 11th Tauck Trip. It was our most disappointing from our Tour Director, to the smoke filled Glaciers (you knew more than a week before we went that hotels and restaurants were closed) to the lack of activities, poor food, this trip disappointed me. Snowing on top of the Glacier and the friends we made.

4* Canadian Rockies
We started in Calgary and went to Glacier National Park which will sadly soon have no glaciers. The Many Glacier Hotel is old with spartan accommodations. Banff and Lake Louise were spectacular and our accommodations in Canada were superb with the exception of the Jasper Park Lodge. Our guides were knowledgable. The Canadians rockies were the highlights of the trip and I am grateful to have seen them.

This was our first trip with Tauck tours. We will defininately travel with them again in the future. It was all the little extras that we received to make the trip special.

We were in a beautiful part of the country and our tour guide gave us all a lot of happy memories.

5* A Perfect Vacation
We both agree that it was a spectacular trip. We were taken care of with diligence, right up to our arriving at the airport when the Tauck Direcotr told us he was going into the airport and get the porters to come out and get our luggage and put them on trolleys for us. He stressed that we would not have to tip the porters as he would take care of it. The road from Lake Louise to Jasper.

5* Sorry it had to end
It was a magical experience to travel thru the Canadian Rockies, to feel at one with nature and the stresses of everyday life in the big city just wash away, I live in New York City, While I enjoy this life(my choice) It was grand to see so many wonderful sights and learn about every detail from the terrific guide we had. I would love to return. I honestly cannot pick one moment, there were so many, but I'll say waking in the morning and opening the curtains and looking out at the spectacular view from my window. Thanks to the great Hotels we stayed in, I was never disappointed.

The entire trip exceeded our expectations! This was our very first tour of any kind and we can't imagine using any other tour company in the future. We were beyond impressed with the entire Tauck experience. Our tour director and bus driver made an awesome team. The scenery of this trip really defies description! Amazing!! There were just so many cherished and fun moments that it's difficult to select one. If I had to pick a #1, it would be ALL the ABSOLUTELY AMAZING scenery! #2 would be a tie between the friendships we made with the other travelers and the smooth, coordinated, inclusions of the Tauck tour. Definitely looking forward to our next Tauck tour!!

This was our first Tauck trip. This is a wonderful itinerary and we had great weather. We loved the scenery and hikes. We had a fantastic Tauck Director. He made the Rockies even more memorable.

Tauck met my expectations and more. From the spectacular scenic views to the great tour director and Coach Driver, I was constantly impressed. I have never felt so worry free as I did on this trip. Our Tauck Director took care of everything possible and was informative and at the same time entertaining. Looking at future Tauck tours. Beautiful Moraine Lake, Lake Louise, and red bus tour in Glacier Nat'l Park. Seeing elk, deer, bear cubs and moose. The weather was perfect and we even enjoyed a few days of snow.

This trip was fabulous. Being in 5 national parks on 1 trip was amazing. Our guide was the best . He made sure that we all had what we needed and knew what was happening. His passion for the tour was so evident. The scenery, weather, group could not have been better. And all the little surprises that Tauck throws in each day adds to the fun. The colors of Lake Louise and Lake Moraine were unbelievable. Being able to take pictures with the mountains having perfect reflections in the lake just like the pros do with amazing.

Absolutely great rooms in Canada. Rooms in Glacier were a little rustic, but clean. Scenery was fabulous but not that many animals. Our Tour Director, Rob White was very good and very knowledgeable. Food was good to great. Views from our rooms at Banff and Lake Louise were absolutely fantastic. A WOW when you opened the drapes. Opening the drapes at Lake Louise. Only problem we had was at Lake Louise. It was a Sunday and it started to rain. Everybody who was at the Lake that day from our hotel and many others came in for lunch at the same time. The wait we were quoted at Lake Lounge was 60 minutes and only because we were guests. We got in the Glacier Lg in 30 min

4* Glacier and Canadian Rockies with Alex Sayegh
We had a terrific leader. His knowledge, humor, patience, and organization were superb. When we were delayed by a malfunctioning ice explorer operated by Brewster, he was calm and reassuring. Although we enjoyed the roadside vistas, we would have liked more active naturalist-guided active events, such as hikes and kayak paddles. 1. Lake Louise views. 2. Guided Lake Moraine walk with a local guide. 3. Hike to Mt. Agnes Teahouse. 4. Hike to the top of Tunnel Mountain in Banff. 5. Watching the loons on Lake Beauvoir in Jasper. 6. Boat rides on Josephine Lake and Swiftcurrent Lake in Glacier N.P. 7. Wildlife: mountain goats, grizzly bears, elk, loons, violet-green swallows.

His sense of humor and enthusiasm was contagious! To sum up, he exemplified a true love of his profession - daily and moment by moment. Kyaking on beautiful Lac Beauvert in Jasper. This was our favorite park and setting. The lake was crystal clear and the mountains spectacular. The staff at the hotel very accommodating and pleasant. The food was terrific as well.

5* The Best Thing I've Seen In North America (since I met my wife).
I've been on many first class 'business outings' during my years in the corporate world (Pebble Beach, Vail, New York with the theater and fine dining, after hours dinners in museums and aquariums, private formula one and nascar events, etc) and the thing that they all had in common was excellent planning and execution. This was the best of ALL!!! That's a tough question. The bear on the side of the road? The moose on our first trail? The beauty of Glacier National Park? The ride in a red 'jammer'? Our first sighting of the Chateau Lake Louise? Riding the gondola in Banff National Park? Canoeing at Jasper Park Lodge? The ice fields parkway (wow)? Walking on a glacier? The food?

5* Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
This was our first Tauck trip and it was exceptional. Of course we chose this Rockies trip for the scenery and it was spectacular. But, in addition, the logistics Tauck had arranged were truly outstanding. The choice of hotels and the dining were top of the line. But my greatest praise is for the Tour Director. She's phenomenal. The entire experience was so good that I can't say a particular moment. I'll go back and say that the Tour Director was the best I've ever encountered in travel all over the world. We consider her family and miss her greatly.

The Canadian Rockies are magnificent, especially the unreal azure blue of Moraine Lake, nestled amidst 10 peaks. Saw a mama grizzly with 2 cubs, a black bear, lots of elk and Bighorn Sheep.

2* First Tauck disappointment
This was our 9th Tauck tour, and the first one that disappointed us. Missed most of Glacier Nat'l Park because of wildfire smoke, which Tauck knew about beforehand but didn't contact people. Made worse by a tour director who is not a "people person" and who handled many situations poorly. If this was our 1st Tauck tour, we wouldn't book another. View of Lake Louise from our hotel window.

4* Delightful Experience
You might wonder why an American would choose a tour in Canada - after all, they speak English and drive on the right. Well, this region is extremely popular and crowded in the summer. We saw full parking lots in many prime spots, long check in lines in hotel lobbies and no tables available in the best restaurants. But not with Tauck! Hard to choose one, with beautiful panoramic views almost everywhere.

4* Need to go back!
Well, it had to happen sometime - a week of (mostly) bad weather. So, looks like we'll need to go back! Really liked the pace, with time off to enjoy the beautiful hotels. Even in the rain, the area is magical. I took some of my best travel picks, playing off the mist and clouds. A sparkling day in Lake Louise, with time to pull out my sketchpad and do some drawing, sitting on a bench overlooking the lake.

4* Beautiful Landscapes
We had a great time on our Canadian Rockies and Glacier Nat'l Park tour. Our tour guide was wonderful. The places we stayed were amazing! The biggest downer to the trip was the heavy smoke from the BC forest fires so we were almost always having hazy skies. Lake Louise was breathtaking as was Lake Moraine.

4* Western Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
Due to the western fires the first few days had some needed schedule changes and the views were very restricted but Tauck handled it to give us the best options available. Lots of hiking and good views make for a good time overall. Hotel variety from basic rooms to beautiful - Especially Banff and Lake Louise. After 3 smokey days we woke up at Lake Louise to clear skies for the next two days and it was beautiful view right out the room window. Having Elk running around the cabins in Jasper was great too.

This was our first Tauck tour, but definitely not our last.

5* Canadian Rockies (CR5)
From the moment we met our Tauck Director we knew we were in for a real treat, and we weren't disappointed. He was sensational; he's naturalist, geologist, photographer, advisor and has a great sense of humor. Tauck is fortunate to have such a wonderful tour guide. We've been on other tours but he is the difference between a tour and a life experience. Too many to choose, but if pressed, I'd say Athabaska Glacier and the Falls.

1* Canadian Rockies starting Sept 7, 2018 in calgary
This is our 6th Tauck trip and it was very disappointing. I fetl Tauck deceived us somewhat unless I missed your warnings. Because of fires, the scenery we intended to see could not be seen. Tauck knew this was likely, but plowed on, I suppose for the dollars that were lost if you cancelled or allowed guests to cancel. The trip was a total bust. Some dinners were very good, but we can get good dinners at home. The lower temperatures were welcome relief to our heat and humidity

4* Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park
We really enjoyed our trip to the Rockies. As always Tauck makes the trip an experience to remember. They are the best at taking care of every little detail. The locations and hotels we visited were first class. Seeing all of the Canadian National Parks in the Rockies was very special. A great trip to take in the heat of the summer. The "Road to the Sun" in Glacier National Park was awesome. Also our Tauck Tour Director made the trip extra special.

4* Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park
This trip was one of the very best we've taken. On our "bucket list" was to visit the Rockies and stay at the hotels built in the early 1900s for the railroad tourists. They are magnificent! The scenery was amazing. Our director is among the best. We were treated like royalty. Tauck tours rock! Lake Louise and Moraine Lake were incredibly beautiful as was the Chateau Lake Louise. Our dinner at Walliser Stubbe at the Chateau ranks among the very best meals we've ever eaten.

5* First Time Tauck Traveler, now I’m hooked!
I wanted to stay at the best hotels for the “Wow” factor of the beautiful views which is why I booked Tauck and I was not disappointed. We had lakefront views at every location. Our tour guide was outstanding making our trip unforgettable with his knowledge and little treats everyday. Our bus driver was excellent too! Will book again So many to list, sunrise at Many Glacier shining on Mount Grinnell, Going to the Sun Road, beautiful lake color at Lake Louise and sunrise on Victoria Glacier ,the rock pile view from Moraine Lake, Athabasca Falls and whitewater rafting, going on the Athabasca Glacier,and the Gondola at Banff. So many great hiking trails. Bears jams and wildlife.

4* Wonderful tour of the Canadian Rockies
We were on an amazing and memorable tour of the Canadian Rockies. Learned a lot about Canada, its geography, terrain and wildlife. We had the best tour guide. Everything was taken care of, organized and always in place for us. We also had free time to explore and enjoyed spending time with our fellow travelers. Watching a black bear saunter down from a hillside into the water, take a quick dip and walk up again while we were on a boat ride on Swift Current Lake in Montana in the US.

5* More than one could ever expect
The scenery was magnificent. The tour is so well organized and to add to that, our tour director added so many personal touches that made this trip truly outstanding. The hotels are spectacular. We went at the end of August 2016. My husband I would highly recommend this tour. Lake Louise, Lake Moraine and walking on a glacier. All the pictures in the world do not do these spectacular places justice.

5* A Magnificent Trip to the Magnificent Canadian Rockies
I am a veteran of many Tauck tours and this was definitely one of the very best. One couldn't possibly have asked for better scenery, better accommodations, a better tour director, or a better driver! Unlike the Tauck tours of urban areas around the world, this tour focuses on mountains, lakes, forests, and glaciers. Good for the soul! There were many memorable moments on this tour. One of the very best was looking out of our window of our hotel at Lake Louise, the forests, and the glaciers. A second memorable moment was meeting a member of the RCMP in full dress uniform who told us all about his experiences as a Mountie in remote locations of northwest Canada.

5* Canadian Rockies and Glacier Nat'l Park
Tauck treated us first class in arrangements and scheduling. Our tour director was amazing. His knowledge was unbelievable and his vitality would wear one out. Disappointed in our meals at the Fairmonts, one night taking 3 hrs. for dinner with us sitting most of that time. Don't know if there was one seeing all of the trip had such spectacular views. The scenery was unbelievable!

4* Fantastic Trip to the Canadian Rockies
We had the best Tour Director and loved the national parks we visited in Canada. The 10 day trip was casual and a mixture of active days and relaxing days to just enjoy the beautiful scenery. We enjoyed the other Tauck guests and made new friends as well as getting to visit with friends from almost 50 years. Waking up in Lake Louise and opening the window to see the most beautiful and breathtaking sunrise we have ever seen. It made a spectacular photo which we will submit to the photo contest. That memory will last a lifetime!

2* September 2017 Glacier & Canadian Rockies
Spent the first 3 days of trip enveloped in smoke from wildfires in Glacier & Waterton. Most planned activities cancelled. Spent a ridiculous amt. of time on a bus with an impersonal tour director. This was not a case of bad weather. Inexcusable to take a group of mostly seniors & put our health & well being at risk when you knew well in advance. Arriving in Lake Louise & out of the smoke. Meeting wonderful new people.

5* So much more than I ever expected
This is my first Tauck vacation. Tauck does everything for you..You don't have to think..The tour director on our trip was amazing and I can't imagine that there could ever be another better than he was. Each place we saw he had an excitement as if he was seeing it for the first time.That has to be hard to do week after week. The Canadian Rockies were beautiful as I expected them to be. But my memories will be of our tour director and how he created a feeling of family for all of us.We felt like lifelong friends at the end.That is a gift that cannot be taught.The appreciation of nature and friends all in 10 days. Amazing!

5* Beautiful Rockies
Canadian Rockies were so beautiful and accommodations were great. Some were not happy with US accommodations but I found them charming and loved their history. And their locations were the best. Our tour director was Rob and he was outstanding. He went above and beyond. True asset!! Opening the curtains of our hotel room at Lake Louise and seeing the outstanding view. Lake Louise is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

4* Canadian Rockies 2017
From the limo ride at the Calgary airport to the ride back ten days later everything was excellent. Stephanie handled all information, meals, explanations and events flawlessly. Superb planning and execution was the rule. Couldn't be more pleased. Was in Denver the next week on business and able to compare RMNP with the Canadian Rockies. There were several - the view of Mt.Grinnell from Many Glacier Hotel, the Lake front view of Lake Louise, Moraine Lake from the rock pile, and the sunset over Lake McDonald were all quintessential Canadian Rockies.

5* Wonderful, fabulous time
My son and I had a terrific time! We had a great Tauck director. I learned so much about the different areas we were seeing and he had a wonderful sense of humor. He obviously loves his job. This group was a terrific group of people. Everyone interacted with everyone else, we all had a sense of humor, everyone was on time. There wasn't just 1. You can't travel through this beautiful area and have just one moment. The entire trip was memorable.

4* Glaciers, Lakes and More - Glacier National Park and Canadian Rockies Small Tour
Our 5th Small tour had amazing views, very good tour guide but some disappointments. The bus was small, uncomfortable, missing amenities that we always had Tauck Small tours including no leg room or tray to put a drink. Dining reservations at appropriate times were difficult and we had to competing with tour members to book excursions. Needs work! Although we did not see animals we did see lots of amazing waterfalls, glaciers and scenery. Standing on a Glacier is special and canoeing on Lake Louise is a great experience.

5* Natural Beauty at its Finast
Every day of this trip was another view of the most beautiful mountains and lakes of the Canadian Rockies. The tour took full advantage of all this wonderful natural beauty with walks, boat rides, the amazing trip on the Going to the Sun road in the old "jammer" buses, and views from the hotels we stayed in. I learned so much about the history. Watching the sunrise on Lake Louise I think was most memorable.

4* Canadian Rockies Rock
This was our 8th Tauck tour. We got everything we hoped we would out of the tour, including Tauck's attention to detail, unique opportunities offered, great lodging, best food available, and complete management of trip logistics freeing us to enjoy the incredible scenery. The view from our room over Lake Louise is indelible; the rustic but comfortable feeling at Jaspar among beautiful; the walking tour of Moraine Lake with the local guide.

Wonderful Trip Very pleased with itinerary and accommodations Our tour guide was fabulous. He was upbeat, competent, available and seemed to be a step ahead of the other tours.

5* Canadian Rockies Majesty
The splendor of Glacier, Lake Louise, Banff and Jasper, as well as hiking, rafting and boating opportunities, made this trip one of my favorites. The only downside was too many hours on the bus, and we're it not for our tour director it just might have ruined it for me. Instead, the tour director turned the bus trips into informative and entertaining talks. tbc I have to say it was the cumulative experience with our tour director. More than well organized and knowledgeable, he was thoughtful, creative and fun. One fellow traveler said of him, "He makes you feel that you are very special, the only one on the tour." When she said this at our farewell reception, there was a hearty "here, here!"

4* Canadian Rockies/Glacier a must see!
Although the weather was rainy/cloudy a couple of days, we really enjoyed seeing the mountains, glaciers, and the wonderful hotels. The group was very friendly, and everyone got along well. We missed driving over the pass in the red busses, because the pass was closed - so had to re-route. Tauck did a great job, as usual. Ths sunrise at Lake Louise - definitely worth setting your alarm!! Also, the little Tauck touch - greeting us with a cookie and warm drink as we got back on the bus after being on the Athabasca glacier.

5* Wonders of the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That is definitely true when it comes to the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park. This trip affords one the opportunity to see some of the most spectacular mountains, lakes, and wildlife contained therein. The trip is a joy from start to finish, it should be on everyone's to do list. The day trip to the Athabasca Glacier.

2* Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park
Trip had major weather issues (smoke, haze) for Glacier part. Not able to do some activities advertised. Tauck not responsible for weather, but we didn't get to do everything we paid for (lunch at Prince of Wales Hotel, Lake McDonald Lodge stay, boat ride, full jammer ride, etc.)and views in Glacier negatively affected. Staying in the historic hotels (with corresponding views) at Glacier, Lake Louise, Jasper and Banff

5* Wonderful trip to Glacier National Park and the Canadian Rockies
This trip went beyond my expectations as I truly believe that the views are some of the most spectacular in the world. Lake Moraine and Lake Louise are so beautiful that I could stay there for weeks just looking at the beauty of the glaciers and the lakes all mixed together in a serene and breathtaking vision. Being in a cabin at Jasper Lake Lodge and going to the lake to hear the loons and see the geese flying over the lake, and the wonderful sound of the wind through the trees-heaven on earth!

5* Canadian Rockies
We had a wonderful time on our recent trip to Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park. I would recommend this trip for anyone to add to their "bucket list". I am glad it was on mine. Memorable moments, yes there were many. Looking out from our bedroom window to Lakes and Glaciers, food aplenty and very good, very informative Tauck representative. And standing on a glacier on a wonderful day!

5* Canadian Rockies with 3 generations!
One of our very best vacations (and 1st with Tauck) spent during the summer of 2015 in the Canadian Rockies and Glacier National Park. Our guide and bus driver were excellent. It was such a pleasure to not worry about logistics, meet and learn about other travelers and get inside information and stories about the places we visited. For our 5 year old daughter it was canoeing for the 1st time on Lac Beuvert at Jasper Park Lodge. For my husband it was the moment he opened the curtains at Lake Louise and saw the view. I generally enjoyed it all.
