Personal Note from Simon

Canada and Alaska is a fabulous holiday destination and is an easy one for me to book for clients as I am so enthusiastic about the beauty of the contrasting countryside, and the Canadians themselves who say they always offer ‘a warm welcome’ which is absolutely true! Organised tours, fantastic tailor-made itineraries can be produced with or without a car to suit your aspirations and budget – don’t hesitate to contact me for any further information even if you are only in the early stages of planning your holiday to Canada and possibly Alaska.
