    Our tour manager, Jeff, was excellent. He provided a lot of extra things to our trip, taking pictures of the guests and showing us where to take the best pictures. He went out of the way to make sure everybody had a good trip. He was very knowledgeable of the area and had many personal experiences in the area to share with us. Steve, our bus driver was also very good. He kept us laughing with some of his comments to go with his excellent driving. The hotel in Jasper was not up to the standards needed for the trip. The staff was very professional and courteous. The breakfast was good, but the rooms were too small, like a 1950\'s mom and pop hotel. Most of the other hotels were good. The locations and scenery that we saw were very good. They met my expectations for the trip.
