“We’ve been back for three weeks but we are still re-living every moment. You’ve created a great family-friendly adventure for us. The start of each day we couldn’t imagine how you would top the day before. Then every night at dinner we would rave about how you did it again! This trip exceeded all our expectations and now how are we are we supposed to beat it next year?” - Bob and Elizabeth Anne Armstrong, Vancouver
