    This trip was unbelievably good. Thanks to both Ben , our guide and Lorne, our driver we saw an incredible cross section of Canada. Although some days seemed quite long in the coach the little extras, games and local knowledge ensured an exciting trip. The accommodation was varied and of a good standard. Would highly recommend this tour.

    A seasoned traveller as this was my 6th tour. Not all at once you understand. The people I have met over the years and the accommodation have been first rate (better than expected) As for the tour guide. The best one yet!! Having had my fair share of medical eye issues, Ben was the only tour guide to email before I had even left Blighty to offer assistance in any way. Being single I worry about being included with fellow travellers. From day one I just had the best time, Ben our guide could not do enough for any of us, nothing was too much bother. If he ever had a bad day, being a true professional he would never let it show. We were one big family. Ben was part of the group from day one. His knowledge was amaizing, every question had an answer. He is passionate about what he does and it shows........seeing a small part of the world with Ben should be on everyones bucket list. He makes everything fun.. AS for the tour it was well worth using my savings as it was briiliant, just the right balance of culture, sightseeing and freetime. Best bits. ALL!! I loved Vancouver Island, Whilstler and Bamff When can I go back?

    We travelled with Ben on the Iconic Rockies & Western Canada Tour (May 29th 2017). This was an amazing experience complimented by an even more amazing tour director. Ben's knowledge, empathy and caring approach made this the BEST trip we have ever had. Ben had the uncanny knack of being able to help you live the experience with his stories, wit and hilarious antics. He just does it all so well and SO professionally. He is a true ambassador for his beloved Canada and for Trafalgar. We thoroughly recommend both he and Trafalgar to you. You are a truly lucky person if you get Ben Hutchinson as you tour manager. We highly recommend Ben & Trafalgar to those considering a trip to Canada. Sincerely Ben, thank you so much.We needed this. You are priceless. Trafalgar are lucky to have you!!!!

    Our Trafalgar Trip, Iconic Rockies and Western Canada, was a wonderful success and exceeded our expectations in the transportation and accommodations. However, what made it that much more enjoyable was to be in the company of our wonderful guide, Ben Hutchinson. If I were to go on another tour I would not only choose Trafalgar but I would also inquire about selecting dates when Ben could be our guide.
