Canadian Rockies/Glacier Tour Recommendations

Planning a tour this summer for 8 or 9 days of the Canadian Rockies and Glacier Nat. Park. Traveling with my wife and we're 60. We're considering 4 different tour companies-- all across the board as far as cost is concerned. Considering Tauck, Globus, Collette and Caravan tours. Tauck is kind of pricey and don't know if I need to spend what they require, but the accommodations are first class.
Need help deciding, and any comments tour reviews or recommendations will be appreciated.

With 115 years of experience it would be hard to beat Brewster.
Their counter is in the east half of the Jasper ViaRail station.
I have arrived in Jasper several times on the Canadian and have never heard anyone say anything negative about the Brewster Co.
The other option (which I did) is to rent a car after getting off the train. I love the views all along the Icefield highway.
I remember riding a buggy out onto the Athabasca glacier many, many years ago.

We actually want to include Glacier National Park in the tour.
Brewster doesn,t seem to offer that package.

Assuming you mean the American Glacier National Park and not the Canadian one... 8-9 days isn't really enough time to properly cover that very large area IMO. I would suggest picking a smaller area for that amount of time.
