Affordable Tours has and will be our tour company in the future. 

We liked the driver and the guide, but bus trips make my wife uncomfortable and we considered cancelling at the last minute. My wife got motion sickness on the train and the crew had no medication for her. I had to get off the train and walk to a drug store. We went to Canada mostly for the scenery. The ride to Jasper had very little scenery worth seeing. The food was good but the room was not comfortable. The crew was nice and helpful. Most of the options were outrageously expensive.

One issue we had was we were 6.5-7 hours late getting into Jasper from the VIA train. We had "brunch" that day at 11am and were not offered any food the later we got. We were supposed to get in at 1pm (hence brunch) but did not arrive until 7:30 pm. No dinner was offered. Another issue was having 4 hours in Toronto with no where to go while some on our tour went to the CN dinner. Because we did not have an information get together upon our arrival, we were not aware of this.

This tour was fantastic! The value for the money was great. The train experience is one I will always remember. I normally vacation in Europe but Canada was beautiful and a great adventure!
