No apologies for repeating earlier reviews but this really was just a wonderful experience. My wife had wanted to see 'the bears' during our trip to Canada and after some research I came across the GBR. Well it sounded Ok on the website but would it meet my high expectations? Well it didn't, it exceeded them. The cabin was fabulous with a view of the river and mountains beyond. Kristin's cooking was healthy, tasty but make sure she serves up her 'spare rib recipe' - it's delicious! Lilly, our guide was fabulous and a very unique lady who loves the countryside and wants to share it with you. Julius was only there for a short time during our stay but reallly is quite a character and we had some great discussions over dinner. What they all have in common is a love of the natural environment they live in and the animals who they share it with and during your stay, they want you to be a part of that.
I would suggest if you have a diet that requires a full English breakfast every day and you want to see lots and lots of bears then stay in the UK and visit a local zoo. If you want a wonderful experience, comprising great accommodation, considerate hosts, excellent food (but don't forget those spare ribs) and seeing all the animals, including bears in their own natural environment with qualified guides, then go to the GBR as you will never forget the wonderful experience they offer.
