9 Days | 8 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

My wife is returning to California on September 15, and I am looking for a way to get to Montana without going through the Seattle airport. Willing to pay an air fare for a car ride to Montana. Can anyone help?

What is the size of the groups for this tour? I usually like to extend my stay. Has anyone done either another tour or independent touring in conjunction with this trip?


Marilyn Cloutier Jul 30, 2014 at 03:40 PM

Will be on the Aug. '14 trip, looking to link up at the Calgary airport for the shuttle.

Any comments about avoiding large roaming charges while in Canada? We have Verizon. We will be on the July 6, 2014 tour.
Lois Dam Jul 01, 2014 at 10:28 PM

I called Verizon and was told I could extend my coverage (phone) to Canada for 15/month; texting is free and I can one can add data for Canada for an additional fee.

Hi, I am going on the July 6, 2014 tour. Very excited about seeing this spectacular area. My sister and her husband will be with me, after coming over from England.

My favorite Canadian adventure so far was Toronto to Vancouver on ViaRail. Most of the other passengers in first class were from England, A history professor from Oxford and I had done a mile-by-mile sightseeing guide, and we spent many hours comparing notes. The Canadian Rockies were certainly the highlight of that trip.

Anyone going on the July 6, 2014 one?


Mary Frank Aug 27, 2013 at 11:36 AM

One thing worries me about this trip. On day 5, there is a Glacier walk with clamp ons. Does anyone know if it is possible to
skip the walk and just look at the glacier?
Helen Sternheim Aug 27, 2013 at 02:35 PM

I would think you could skip the walk.
Ann Gussett Oct 25, 2013 at 07:44 PM

You can skip the walk if you want and wait in the visitor's center. Jim and I thought the trip was great and the scenery was beautiful, the guide excellent and our group outstanding. Ann

Marcy and I are arriving on August 3 in Calgary and going up to Banff on Saturday. We're going to explore the Banff area a bit on our own before we all meet as a group. (And get used to the altitude.) Any suggestions for easy exploring on Sunday?
