      It was well organized.

      The trip was planned for too early in the spring. It was cold and there were no cherry blossoms. Some of the meal portions were so large that it was wasteful. Most of the included meals were good, except the buffet breakfasts at the Stone Harbor Resort and the lunch at Rosewood. The musical performance at Rosewood was over-produced. Although the rooms at the Grand Geneva Resort were beautiful, there’s no elevator in the three-story main buildings. Our tour director was very good and our driver was excellent.

      Really put one in the Christmas mood! Relaxing to have super driver and tour guide along with varied things to see.

      Good venue. Bus was deluxe. Snacks good. Enjoyed Lark Toys, enjoyed Eagle 🦅 Center. “Reads Landing” for lunch: 2/3 happy, 1/3 not. My pecan apple salad great; my husband got burned flatbread which was hidden on the underside. Only one toilet for women available, caused a delay in exiting for return trip home. Plus door latch didn’t work, fumbling. This would be a question for the planner to ask. Re: sufficient restroom accommodations for groups.

      First, I would like to say that I very much enjoyed the trip. It was great to be able to stay in one place, and make day trips to different locations. It was great to view all the lakes and marvel at the distinct colors and clearness of the water. I can honestly say that I enjoyed the Rockies better in Canada than in Colorado. Also, got to walk on my second glacier. The golf course was great. It was very pleasing to play in the crisp cool morning air. And, I enjoyed the stillness of that early morning. The food at the hotel was excellent. Look forward to continued adventures.
