We have recently returned from the most wonderful 3-week trip across Canada.  This comprised of two rail trips and four coach trips with various connections and accommodations all superbly coordinated by Sarah.  We would wholeheartedly recommend Sarah for Seamless, worry free travel and wish her much success
