Rocky Mountain Holidays™| Reviews

You should always research the travel company before you make a reservation with them.

We are proudly based in Beautiful British Columbia (BC) here in Western Canada which is currently one of the most heavily regulated Canadian provinces for travel companies. With this comes Consumer Protection BC, which by law, BC travel companies must be licensed with in order to offer you, the consumer, financial holiday protection. Our Consumer Protection BC licence number is 58516 or you can simply look us up by business or trade name. For those of you from the U.K. this kind of protection is similar to that of ABTA or ATOL.

Another place to check out a North American business is the Better Business Bureau. We currently hold their highest rating of A+. Their ratings are based on a number of factors including time in business and consumer complaints.

Finally, the internet is a wonderful thing and you can easily find out a lot about a company by searching their company name online. If guests are not happy, they will likely complain online. If guests are thrilled with the service they receive, they will likely seek out review sites to let the world know about their positive experiences. If you can’t find anything on a company online, you have to ask yourself why.

Rocky Mountaineer Wins World Travel Award


Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (November 9, 2009) – Rocky Mountaineer, Canada’s internationally renowned rail experience, has been honoured with a World Travel Award in the category of “World’s Leading Travel Experience by Train” for the fourth year. The World Travel Awards are highly regarded in the global travel network and have been described by the Wall Street Journal as the ‘Oscars’ of the tourism industry. Every year, hundreds of thousands of travel professionals from across the globe cast their votes to determine the winners. Rocky Mountaineer representatives attended this year’s 16th annual World Travel Awards gala event in London, England on November 8, 2009 along with over a thousand international travel and tourism officials.

“Our organization is delighted to be the recipient of this distinguished award for the fourth time,” says Randy Powell, President & Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Mountaineer. “For 20 years, we have provided the most spectacular travel experiences in the world and it is truly an honour to be recognized amongst so many internationally renowned and iconic trains.”

Fellow nominees for the “World’s Leading Travel Experience by Train” award included: The Blue Train (South Africa), Rovos Rail (South Africa), The Royal Scotsman (Scotland), Venice-Simplon Orient Express (Europe), Eastern & Oriental Express (South East Asia), The Ghan (Australia), Hiram-Bingham Express (Peru), The Golden Chariot Train (India) and The Indian Maharaja (India).

The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge and recognize excellence in the world’s travel and tourism industry. Now celebrating its 16th anniversary, the awards are considered the very highest achievement that a travel provider could ever hope to receive. Votes are cast globally by fellow industry professionals in 919 different categories with 3600 nominees. This year’s winners were determined by thousands of travel professionals from 183,000 travel agencies, tour and transport companies and tourism organizations in over 160 countries.

Rocky Mountaineer offers unique Canadian vacation packages and four spectacular rail routes through British Columbia and Alberta. Best known for the internationally-acclaimed Rocky Mountaineer train, a two-day, all daylight rail journey through Canada’s West and the Canadian Rockies, the company also offers a three-hour experience between North Vancouver and Whistler, BC. Since its inception in 1990, Rocky Mountaineer has grown to become the largest privately owned passenger rail service in North America and welcomed its one millionth guest in 2008. In 2009, Rocky Mountaineer was named one of the “World’s Greatest Trips” by National Geographic and ranked as the number one train experience in the world by The Society of American Travel Writers.
