Our outstanding holiday with Titan wasn’t Australia & New Zealand, or South Africa, or China (not all with you) but THE one for us was Canada, Rocky Mountaineer,Vancouver Island.
We went to Vancouver island by ferry after a smooth flight. We found the Hotel, a period ’30s – absolutely superb. The main reason for staying there was the trip to see the whales. The guy who took us was brilliant. He said “sometimes my job is hard because we can search all day and not see one whale, but today you are going to see 3 pods, about 90 whales!!” He took the boat away from all the others which puzzled us, then without warning these wonderful creatures came up very close to our boat and with a knowing eye, which seemed to say “oh no more B— tourists” rolled over and swum on. I turned to the skipper and the mist was in his eyes too, “still affects you too?” “Yep every time.” That is how awe inspiring and humbling that was.
The Seaplane flight back to Vancouver was something else, the five star food and hostesses in the panoramic on the Rocky Mountaineer went beyond expectations. Walking round a lake, realising we could have been bear fodder (reading the warning on the hotel room door afterwards!) Fantastic memories for our 40th wedding anniversary.
So guess where we have booked with Titan for our 50th,could be the Alaskan Cruise with Rockies by rail, well you guessed right. It wont be the same, but we are convinced it is going to be good.
Well done Titan, Wendy and George Silk
We would like to thank Wendy and George for sharing their Titan travel memory with us!

Recent highlights include penguins in Antarctica, bears and whales in Canada and Alaska and sea otters in California - but there are always more animals to search for.Article published on: January 16, 2014
