REVIEWS

I can not imagine having had a more enjoyable adventure! Thank you to Jennifer and the rest of the crew at Canada by Design for making it happen. The entire vacation was seamless. From the overnight train to Jasper, through the ice fields to Lake Louise and on to Banff, the accommodations could not have been better. The Banff Springs Hotel was breathtaking.
