“Boynton-Howlett Experience”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by PBoynton (1 review written)

Our trip was beautifully managed, save for the inexplicable "loss" of some 10+ hours on our train schedule between Jasper and Toronto (due to endless goods trains sidelining our passenger train). Our hotels were fabulous, the transfers from train to and from the hotels went like clockwork, and the journey overall was quite wonderful. Our particular favorite was Fiona Scott, a marvelous manager from start to finish, and a person we highly recommend to anyone interested in training about the… Read Full Review

Loved Vancouver and Victoria. Hotel was super first class.It was a very long day to Victoria. but lots of fun and we had a really good group of people.

“VIA, the Way To Go”

Written on: 10/09/2013

From the champagne and appies welcome, to the chocolate on my pillow at night and the opportunity to really see this country from ground level- OK, up a few feet, we had a great journey from Vancouver to Toronto with a short break in Jasper. One night's entertainment was watching a lightning storm on the prairies from the dome car at the rear of the train. It was spectacular from lightning streaking to the ground to layers of clouds illuminated by shafts of electricity. The meals provided an… Read Full Review

“Great trip planning by Fresh Tracks Canada”

Written on: 09/09/2013 by bobandmary (1 review written)

We crossed Canada from Vancouver to Halifax by train, 20 days -- some nights in sleeper car -- some in hotels -- and day tours in different cities -- bus -- boat -- train. The trip was very well planned for us. We were given an itinerary which told us all we needed to know for each day -- what time we'd be picked up -- where we'd be going -- whether tips were included or not -- whether there would be meals or not on that day. It all went like clockwork (except for the train schedules, where… Read Full Review

“Canada is a beautiful place to see by train!”

Written on: 06/09/2013

I loved seeing Canada by rail;it was an experience I wouldn't trade and I'm so glad I spent part of my vacation with Via Rail. My train car accommodations were clean and comfortable. The food was excellent and the train staff were pleasant and always helpful. The train even slowed down as we passed some beautiful sites so we could get good pictures! I would recommend the trip to friends. The only thing to keep in mind is that if you get sick in a car when reading, you will most likely get sick… Read Full Review

“Unexpected adventure”

Written on: 05/09/2013

We have heard of the trans-canadian railway trip via media documentaries and word of mouth. It was dutifully entered into the bucket list of trips to take, and indeed relive days of the past when the railroad was the chief mode of transportation in the U.S. The journey fromVancouver to Banff was awesome, and the vistas spectacular. Our servers onboard kept everyone well fed, and in good humor for the entire first leg into Banff. Every where we turned in the mountains we had another, "gosh look… Read Full Review

“Fresh Tracks Canada Great agency - Train Experience ??”

Written on: 27/08/2013 by BerniePrime (1 review written)

The tour agency we worked with, Fresh Tracks Canada, did an outstanding job. All details were in the information provided to us. Every activity was accurately described and our tour pickups and transfer went like clockwork. We were met by guides or transportation at all locations that we were staying or traveling from or to. Everything was spelled out in detail and everything occurred according to the details in the information provided to us. Now the not so good side of the travel… Read Full Review

“Lemonade from lemons!”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by dc.graham09 (1 review written)

In spite of not being able to get to Banff and Lake Louise, we had a great time in Jasper. We found an owner of a taxi company willing to take us all around to several different locations for photos. He lived in the area so he knew where to take us. Freshtracks kept in tpuch with us and booked some great tours. I think they did an excellent job of helping us when there were problems getting into the hotels due to the flooding and influx of tourists. All in all, our time in Jasper and the… Read Full Review

“Very satisfied with the Tour & tour organisers Paula &...”

Written on: 23/08/2013 by gulu (1 review written)

Great & Enjoyable Experience! From the initial enquiry from Australia to the end of the actual tour, everything was Spot On. Had no problems with pick ups or train transfers or the hotels. Everything was delivered by Package Mail to Australia on time, prior to our departure. The hotel itinerary was chalked out perfectly. They are a credit to your organisation! I would definitely recommend your Organisation to my friends. Thank you very much for a hassle-free and enjoyable time we had on the… Read Full Review

“Great Tour Company”

Written on: 15/08/2013 by LarryFTCanada (1 review written)

The tour company arranged my trip and for others at the same time. The arrangements went perfect, and the tour company followed up after our trip was over. Starting at the the Palm Springs California area and driving to Vancover and then takeing the tour was one of the best vacations and Fresh Tracks helped to make that happen. My hat is off to them for their efforts. Fresh Tracks can use me as a referral… Read Full Review

“First time in western Canada”

Written on: 26/07/2013

Could not believe what a great show the Stampede was. Not to mention Calgary itself, and the people of Calgary. Next was Banff and then Jasper, more spectacular scenery and animal life than we had seen in any other part of the Rockies or the Andes. We ate "local", had caribou, elk, venison, buffalo and rainbow trout. While is wasn't "local" we had the best wild boar imaginable. By the way Alberta beef was different than what we get in the states, but equally good in a different way. We then… Read Full Review

“Excellent service”

Written on: 22/07/2013

We booked our Montreal & Quebec getaway from Australia . From the moment of my initial call from Australia, we received prompt service regarding our tour enquiry. During our booking process, till the finalisation and itinerary received by us, we have been completely satisfied by the services rendered by Paula Good and Amber. Our whole tour was planned meticulously and comfortable. The hotels were very good and transportation from hotel to the rail station and to and fro was prompt and we had… Read Full Review
