Best week of my life
Aug 2019
No doubt the Caribou was the best week of travelling I've ever had. Pretty much everyone on our tour was travelling solo, and by the end we were all best friends! Keira our tour guide / driver / fount of all knowledge was amazing, anyone who gets her as a guide is really lucky. I'd do it all again tomorrow.

Second tour with this amazing company
Jul 2019 • Solo
This was my second tour with the Moose bus, my 1st was with a friend 5 years ago. I loved every minute of it, met loads of amazing people and took part in many activities. It is such excellent value for money when you take into account travel, activities, some meals and the high standard of the accommodation. Would highly recommend the optional kayaking and horse riding, Both were really amazing. Well done moose bus!

Excellent tour from Canadian Rockies from Vancouver
Sights: Our tour to the Canadian Rockies took us through the major highlights such as 5 national parks: banff, yoho, jasper, glacier and Revelstoke. Major sights include lake Louise, glacier parkway and Columbia Icefield. “Minor” sights that rival the major ones include peto lake, bow lake, pyramid mountain and many others that our trusty and knowledgeable guide Keira took us through. We did short hikes and walks so this would be suitable for people who are somewhat active/fit/mobile. Also, Keira knows the best spots for photos and helps us get them taken efficiently and safely.

Optional tours: I did and recommend the kayaking in Revelstoke (mainly because there is not much else to do, whereas the lake is quite beautiful it cannot be hiked on foot as alternate) and white water rafting with hydra at kicking horse river. A bit more neutral about the glacier walk as the “walk” is not really a walk but like a scenic viewpoint stop for taking photos. Pro: unique opportunity to walk on a glacier and drink melting glacier water. Con: the high cost. Also there is a wonderful free hike that the rest did which they raved about. Note that booking these optional activities through moose is cheaper than booking directly yourself as an independent traveler at the ticket booths; I verified! Also bring cash for the optional tours for banff free day as the booking center charged 3.5% fee for credit card payment.

Accommodations: all in bunk beds at mixed dorms with shared bathrooms in hostels. One night in a rural one with a camping feel and no showers. Room assignment by hostel. Need to make own bed/strip linen at each stop. Towels provided, toiletries not included. The Samesun chain was overall more comfy with breakfast, compared to the hosteling international chain. Took the prepackaged accommodation deal which was very convenient and appear good value.

Food: lunch and some breakfast are mostly self catered with daily stops at grocery stores. Some dining out opportunities in banff and jasper at own cost. guide Keira made an effort to stop at scenic areas for our picnic lunches, which I really enjoyed. Included meals were pretty good and had choices (meat, vegetarian etc).

Transportation: comfortable van with air on/heater. Keira was both guide and driver and she did an excellent job. We happened to be a small group of ~10 So had plenty of room to spread out and get a window seat each. There is no porterage so we have to bring our luggage and load/unload it from the bus at each stop.
