TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Vancouver:
September is one of Vancouver's best month's temperature-wise hopefully producing mild and clear skies. Average daytime temperature in September ranges from 15°C to 18°C. In a city that is famous for its rain, September is not the rainiest by far. You can expect about eight days, or about one-quarter of the month, to be rainy.
 
Canmore:
The climate in Canmore is cold and temperate due to its elevation (1400m). There is significant rainfall throughout the year in Banff, even the driest month still has a lot of rainfall. Summer temperatures are the warmest month and are pleasant with an average high of 21.6 °C and an average low of 7.3 °C. Snow has been recorded in all months of the year.
 
Alaska:
Alaska’s Inside Passage region has a temperate summer climate. Dry in early summer, with slightly more rain likely from August onward, temperatures average between 4 °C and 20 °C. The weather is changeable. Expect long days of sunlight.
 
FLIGHTS
Seat Selection & Frequent Flyer Points:

However any additional extras purchased on board will have a gratuity of up to 18% added.
 
Sightseeing:
Please note: In the event entrance to a site is affected by changes in operating hours or public holiday closures, your itinerary will be adjusted to ensure you do not miss out on the experience. 
 
Shopping:
Shopping overseas can be a daunting and confusing experience, especially when there is a language barrier. Please be very cautious when foreign currencies and prices are involved.  If paying by credit card, please pay close attention to the amount you are being charged and keep all of your receipts. 
Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader.
