      Awesome Experience at Yellowstone!
      Had a few church friends that wanted to do a trip to Yellowstone so thought we would give First Express Travel a shot since it was recommended by another church member in our congregation. It was an excellent trip and much cheaper (for us) to go with these guys than to plan everything with flights, hotels and meals. Going with First Express meant everything was managed by them including the park tickets and admissions. My kids really enjoyed being on a bus as this was their first time travelling on the road for long distances and it really gave them an understanding and vivid experience on long road trips that my father and I used to take when we were kids. Yellowstone is such a gem and everyone and family should go at least once in their life!

      Fantastic Trip to Leavenworth
      Fantastic trip and tour to Leavenworth with First Express Travel. The service by agency staff, tour guide and driver was excellent and my family and I really felt taken care of. The crowd and other travelers on board is a mixed crowd of all ethnicities, which I enjoyed but thought would put it out there. I would look to travel with First Express again soon. My wife has her sights set on the Rockies trip later on in the year. Cant Wait!

      Excellent Tour Guide for Victoria
      Great place and Ken - our tour leader - very accomodating. The Butchart garden is georgious. However, because of time change, our schedule allowed us to spend only for one hour.

      Buchart garden in fall
      It eas raining and cloudy. No more roses. Alot of the flowers are gone. Though we lobe the japanese garden. It was full of different colored leaves that has made the visit worth while during fall. They are strict on people using selfie stick though the garden are almost empty. For the tour, i find 238 cad is too expensive aside from leaving a 15 cad tip. For victoria, we just did some picture taking, free time for an hour and thats it

      Harbour of Victoria is awesome
      We totally loved the tour! The Butchart Gardens and Inner Harbour of Victoria were especially awesome. We walked around the gardens, soaking in every bit of it. I was seriously amazed by how they blended so many different types of gardens right next to each other. Definitely the coolest botanical garden we've ever been to!

      Great Job Ken
      Awesome and perfectly timed! Ken was our guide and he did a fantastic job sharing info about Vancouver Island, Victoria, and the Butchart Gardens. The ferry ride was cool since it's not something I typically experience back home. We totally suggest taking this tour!

      Capilano!
      Went to the Vancouver tour and was not disappointed. Capilano suspension bridge was spectacular and a must-see if your are visiting Vancouver for the first time. It gets quite busy, but if you can manage a photo in the middle of the bridge, it looks beautiful with the trees and river in the background. The tree walk was also amazing and exhilarating to run through. The travel company made it easy for us and friendly tour guide took us to different city sites, but Capilano was the best part by far.

      Best tour guide
      Ken took pics of everyone, and he was really nice and knew a ton about the city's history. He made sure the schedule was smooth, so the trip was easygoing. The highlight was definitely the Butchart Gardens!

      Picturesque attractions
      Our guide, Harvey, was fantastic. He ensured we were well-informed about the region we were exploring and simultaneously kept us engaged. The Rocky Mountains are undeniably breathtaking, and Banff National Park stands as a picturesque park offering numerous attractions to behold.

      Ken, our tour guide, absolutely loved his job! He knew so much about Victoria City, Butchart Garden, and the inner harbor. And he made the tour super fun and entertaining – it was seriously the best tour I've ever been on!

    Terrible tour guide (Tom) who ruined the tour with his rudeness and pushiness. Tom was very focused on how much everything cost, how terrible each place was and what he didn’t like about things. Everything was very Asian focused (all meal plans were catered for Asian’s). Most dialogue was in asian. Tom was very pushy on buying all tours through him and how much he could save us on the trip money. The mandatory service fee per person per day is a joke. If I had my choice my whole tip would have gone on the driver who kept us safe and got us from A-B without a hitch. I would never recommend this tour for any non Asian person as it is not very Caucasian friendly.Even our tour stops were all Asian oriented (a ginger NG factory where everything is in asian).
    I was totally fobbed off when I asked Tom a question and felt like I was an impost.
    PLUS the night before we got a text message asking if we wanted to sit in the front row of the bus for an extra $80pp that we paid to him. Yep a tour of my lifetime was nothing but a money maker for tour guide. It was our second tour that we prebooked from Australia wirh this company because it sounded so good. Nope don’t be fooled like I was. Bloody terrible.

    We had an amazing tour of Banff and the Rocky Mountains. Our tour guide Johnson spoke fluent English and had an excellent sense of humor, making the experience even more enjoyable. The driver Mingdat skillfully navigated the roads, providing a smooth and comfortable journey. Moreover, the accommodation in Banff surpassed my expectations and was truly exceptional.

    We had an incredible experience encountering a bear during our visit! Our guide, Tom, was truly exceptional, providing us with both valuable information and entertaining stories. He ensured that we explored the best parts of Banff National Park in a manner that was environmentally conscious. The breathtaking views we witnessed under his expert guidance were truly magical. Moreover, the hotels we stayed in exceeded our expectations and were fantastic. Without a doubt, we highly recommend this particular tour if you plan on visiting the Rockies and Banff National Park.

    I would like to give a special shoutout to our tour guide, Tom, who was not only incredibly friendly but also highly experienced. Throughout our journey to Banff, we made several stops, and I must say that the long drives were absolutely worth it. We were treated to breathtaking scenes of waterfalls, mountains, and abundant wildlife. In fact, I even had a remarkable encounter with a black bear near one of the hotels we stayed at. Speaking of accommodations, the hotels exceeded our expectations, providing a truly above-average experience. It was incredibly relaxing and even had a touch of luxury. I highly recommend this tour for anyone seeking a remarkable and rejuvenating experience.

    Four days spent in the stunning Rocky Mountains! This journey provided an excellent opportunity to explore all the captivating attractions within the park, while also enjoying the surrounding Banff area. Our guide, Bob, exhibited impressive expertise regarding the lake Louise mountains, wilflife and Banff National Park. Also the accommodation in the town of Banff was pleasant. Overall, we higly recommend this tour.

    Many thanks to driver and tour guide for their incredible knowledge and kindness, which truly made the coach journey much more enjoyable. I must say, the Columbia Icefield and Lake Louise are absolutely stunning! Hotel in Banff town was the best!

    Always wanted to visit Banff and the beautiful Rockies so when my friend told me about this trip with First Express Travel, I jumped at the opportunity. This trip was a event to remember. Lake Louise was so epic and looks just as good as the photos you see on Google. Every photo taken there was a photo op moment.

    But the highlight of the trip was the Columbia ice field. The ride up with the big trucks was so exciting almost like a roller coaster ride as the hill is so steep when you make your way onto the big glacier. It was such an amazing experience to stand on the ice field and you even get to drink from the thousand year glacier!

    Make sure to go soon because it is melting fast and was one of my favorite trips during my visit to Canada.

    The Canadian Rockies offer an absolutely amazing atmosphere! If you want to experience the true essence of the Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park, you've got to check out Banff town, Icefield Columbia, and Lake Louise. These places are total icons and will give you that one-of-a-kind Rocky Mountain vibe!
