Canada tour reviews

This was such an amazing tour, if you are thinking of just doing the east side, consider doing east AND west. The east was great for cities, culture and food, but the west (aka the Rockies!!) was so phenomenal [...]

- Natasha C, Grand Canadian

Joe was an amazing guide and I hope to get him for another booked trip, very thorough with explaining things and great at planning extras for us to enjoy.

- Mykala Doerksen, Atlantic Canada

My partner and I had the most amazing trip on the Eastern Adventure with Charlotte, her knowledge of Canada and the Free Time Add-Ons was phenomenal. She made the whole trip a pleasure and ran smoothly – she’s a credit to Contiki.

When is the best time to visit Canada?

Canada has something awesome to offer all year round. When it comes to the best time to visit, it depends on what you’re looking for (each season has its pull!) Wanna ski or check out those marvellous mountains at their snowiest? Start your Canada trip in December-March. Wanna go when there are fewer crowds, and love a good cherry blossom too? March to June is the time for you. Want the best weather, and a time when the hiking trails are more accessible? Visit Canada between July and September. Want the best of everything? We’re talkin’ festival season, fewer crowds and decent weather. Autumn is officially the time for you.

Do I need a visa to travel to Canada?

This will depend on your country of origin. Luckily for you, we've made a convenient guide to help you learn more.

What should I pack for a trip to Canada?

You’ll need your ski gear or swimwear depending on the time of year you visit and what you plan to do while you’re there. Most of the must-haves will match your planned activities, but you can’t go wrong with packing:

• Hiking boots and comfy socks
• Sunscreen
• A hat and sunglasses
• Your camera
• A refillable water bottle

What is the currency used in Canada?

Canada uses the Canadian dollar.

What is ATM access like in Canada?

ATM access is pretty good in Canada’s major cities. In the more rural areas, you may need to look a little harder. It’s always a good idea to keep some extra cash in your pocket, just in case.

How many days should I spend in Canada?

It depends on what you want to do there and how much free time you have. Luckily for you, Contiki’s Canada trips are between 10 and 20 days long, and they all offer up a decent and diverse sample of the country. For example, the Grand Canadian covers Niagara Falls, Athabasca Glacier, and Lake Louise, plus Toronto and Montreal.

Is it customary to tip in Canada?

Yes! In Canada, it’s considered standard practice to add a tip of 15-20% in bars, cafes and restaurants.

Is tap water safe to drink in Canada?

Yes, tap water is considered safe to drink in Canada. In fact, Canada is home to 9% of the world’s freshwater resources but only 0.5% of the world’s population, so you could say there’s drinking water to spare.
