      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.

      We enjoyed the whole trip. Liked staying in one hotel and making day trips out from that base. The hotel was very convenient to downtown for exploring on our free time. The bus driver for the days in Canada was very good and was interesting to talk to. He was also very confident and experienced with his driving. Star Destinations and Hills Bank Friends Club did an excellent job of planning and organizing the trip.
