Our tours are conducted in English only, by a professional tour director with more than 10 years of experience!

We recommend booking your tour as soon as your plans are confirmed, as departure dates are quite popular and can fill up quickly. Essentially, book early to avoid disappointment!

Key West Travel does not offer individual pick-ups as our tour guests would like to depart Vancouver as scheduled. Usually, the tour departs from Hyatt Regency Downtown Vancouver (655 Burrard Street).

Standard hotels are mountain lodge-style while premium hotels are resort-style. The majority of our guests choose standard accommodation as these hotels are very clean and comfortable, and travellers will get their own private room and washroom. Travellers who book premium accommodation often do so because they want to stay at Chateau Lake Louise. If you want to book premium accommodation, be sure to book early as these hotels sell out quickly – they usually aren’t available within 6 months of departure!

Gratuities are not included in the prices (unless indicated). While it is neither our place nor our wish to tell you how much to tip, gratuities in Canada are often given in recognition of service excellence.

“Excellent tour and saw amazing places and experienced lovely things. It met our needs of visiting the Rockies and was well priced for what it had offered. Well worth the money. Brad was very well spoken and knowledgeable with all the information he provided. He knew his information/history and provided us with all necessary information. Len was very friendly and professional one of the best drivers from a tour company we have experienced.”
