Tours for Alaska and Canada

Jump to last reply

Hi there

I'm an Australian woman, single and in my late 30s and I would like to do a tour through Canada and Alaska but I don't want to go with a bunch of teenagers and 20-odd year olds. Does anyone have any suggestions of the best tour companies out there that would suit my situation? Thanks.

    I don’t know of any tour companies that operate across Canada, although there may be some. Fodorites tend to be independent travellers and those of us who post regularly on the Canada board probably haven’t used tour companies much in Canada. Regardless, if you could be more specific about what it is you want to see and do, the amount of time you have and your general travel style, we could be more helpful. Do you prefer city life or out of doors? Budget or luxury? A taste of several different locations or longer stays in a few? What time of year? Flexibility or everything arranged in advance?

    “Canada and Alaska’ covers a lot of territory--quite a bit bigger than Australia. Take a look at a map: the distance from Vancouver to Toronto in southern Ontario is roughly the same as that from Perth to Sydney, and there is all of Quebec and the maritime provinces east of that.

    In general, there are enough similarities between your country and ours that you should feel pretty comfortable here and be able to make your way around independently should you choose to do that. We are a safe country, small population spread over a very large land mass, English speaking, similar currency, and welcoming to visitors. Your biggest problem is likely to be narrowing down your travel plans to something manageable. good luck!
