Rocky Mountaineer
Hi Glenys and Fred, thanks for reading the blog. You'll have seen that we aren't fans of Rocky Mountaineer as a result of our experience (and we're still waiting for a response to our complaint 2 months later despite chasing!!). So our best advice to you, especially as your trip is to mark such special events, would be do the trip but with a different form of transport. We'd hate your dreams to be shattered by RM's inefficiency. Perhaps hire a car or do a coach trip and stay in some really super places with the money that you will save - and you'll get to see so much more, which is what we did travelling back the other way. Hope this is helpful and best wishes for your special occasions. Caroline & Michael
