    • Home stay or corporate Housing ?

      Toronto Mar 31, 2015 at 4:27 AM

      We're visiting Ontario next month and are planning a stay of one week. Any recommended home-stay or motels ? I have heard that corporate housing is a growing trend in Toronto. I even heard about one particular establishment called Mac suites ( http://www.macsuites.ca/real-estate/ ) proving a reliable service. How effective is this ? Valuable suggestions are appreciated.

      Driving around British Columbia

      Canada Apr 12, 2015 at 7:42 PM

      Hi everyone

      My wife and I are holidaying in Canada, mostly in British Columbia in October this year. We're flying into Vancouver and staying at the Fairmont Waterfront for 2 nights. Then we are travelling on the Rocky Mountaineer to Banff via Kamloops.

      We have a van booked for a driving holiday with our daughter, son in law and granddaughter for a couple of weeks. The itinerary for the driving holiday is

      Banff - Fairmont Springs
      Lake Louise - Fairmont Chateau
      Jasper - Patricia Lake Bungalows
      Sun Peaks - Bear Country Trails Edge
      Whistler - Whistler Platinum First Tracks Lodge
      Victoria - Fairmont Empress
      Vancouver - Fairmont Waterfront

      We are staying at all of these places for 2 nights each. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on things to do in and around the towns above. Things that interest us include visiting wineries, sightseeing, photography, chairlift rides, snow mobile tours.

      Thank you for any feedback.

      best taxi company?

      Victoria Apr 13, 2015 at 11:22 AM

      I have been researching means of getting to the airport from Victoria BC. I have looked at the reviews of 3 taxi companies, and the reviews aren't very helpful because one will rate a *****, and the other will only a *. I usually throw out the highest and lowest, but in this case, they are all either extreme. I usually like the Yellow Cab, but reviews have not been good. Neither have the ones for Blue Bird Taxi or Victoria Taxi. Which one would you use?? Thanks!

      Road trips out of Toronto?/Shuttle bus from Toronto airports to Downtown?

      Canada Apr 12, 2015 at 8:46 AM

      Hello all
      Can anyone recommend towns worth seeing, say within a 250km radius of Toronto city? A couple of relatives are hiring a car in Toronto to spend 3-4 days elsewhere and they don't want to drive blindly...if they know the happening places before they go, that would be great!
      Also, are there shuttle buses from the 2 Toronto airports to the Downtown area of Toronto?
      Lastly, as Irish citizens traveling from Dublin, what documentation are they expected to fill out and will they do this in Dublin airport, Toronto airport or must they pre-apply for visa's to visit?
      Thank you all again!!!

    • Summer Road Trip on Canadian West Coast

      We're planning on visiting Canada's West Coast on our honeymoon from 14th of July to 11th of August and travelling around Vancouver, Whistler, Banff, Victoria and Edmonton.

      The big question: Is it possible to drive around Canada at this time and not have accommodation booked months in advance? We are hoping to book days in advance instead and are willing to camp if necessary

      VT Mini Meet October 2015

      Vancouver Apr 3, 2015 at 10:01 PM

      Expressions of Interest wanted :o) We will be in Vancouver early October and would love to meet up with some locals.
      So far we have Ann75, the_dutchman, YVRDave and Darby 2 interested in saying hello.
      We are staying at the Granville Island Hotel and I guess the best place on Granville Island would be the Dockside Seafood Restaurant.
      So my question is, which date is more suitable, dinner on Friday 9th October?..... lunch/dinner on Saturday 10th October?
      We would love to include a bit of a photo shoot on the river. Maybe some boat light trails or time-lapse photography, or nice night light photos :o)
      So, who's interested?... and which day suits you the best?
      Hope to see you all there!
      Hugs, Ann and Howie xx

      A few basic questions for a future first time visitor to Toronto!

      Toronto Apr 4, 2015 at 3:09 PM

      Hello everyone!
      I'm doing a little pre-trip research on Toronto and had a few questions which I hope ye can help me with!

      Is there only 1 airport near the city? And I presume that has several terminals?
      What is the area of Corktown like? I presume that is well outside the touristy area/most popular districts?
      Is it fair to say that the Downtown area is where it's all happening?
      Should we base ourselves there to be close to all the main attractions?
      Are there any areas of Toronto which should be avoided? (Sorry if this is a silly question!)
      Are there regular daily organised visits to Niagara Falls from Toronto?
      Can you tell me the best (and the biggest) shopping malls in Toronto? Starting with the most central :)
      Hotels are looking very very pricey in the Downtown area. Is this the norm? Are there more reasonable mid-range options also located centrally?

      As you can see from these questions, I am struggling in these early stages of my research :)

    • date when the snow/ bears arrive

      by michelleava Online Now Feb 14, 2011 at 2:55 PM

      I was in churchill last year October 11 -16 and there was no snow/ ice and few bears. I am planning to go again this year but want to optimize the chances of seeing bears in a white landscape. I know the timing is tricky: too early and there is no snow/ice yet. Too late and the bears are gone. I can either go oct 26 for 6 days or Nov 11 for 6 days. What would you suggest? Do you remember what date the snow arrived and bears arrived last year?

      by ranjan.niyogi Online Now May 12, 2010 at 7:22 PM

      My wife and plan to take a polar bear tour in Churchill around mid-November this year. Would it be possible to see the Northern Lights ( Aurora Borealis ) at this time or do we have to make a separate trip later in the winter? Any tips / suggestions on how to make the trips?
      Thanks

      Tours

      by Babzz Online Now Mar 7, 2008 at 3:40 PM

      Does anyone know of any tour operators who offer simple day trips to see the bears? I don't want a multiple-day package, just one day of viewing the bears. I found one operator that offered this, but they only had a couple of days in October avalable for 2008, and I'd prefer November. Thanks!

      AUTUMN TRIP TO CHURCHILL

      by JAN53 Online Now Jan 2, 2008 at 11:46 AM

      We are coming over to see the polar bears this Oct/Nov and wondered if anyone has been recently and could give us any tips on whether its better to stay on a tundra buggy or in a hotel in Churchill. If its possible to hire parkas to wear as we don't really want to buy big items like this for the extreme weather conditions. Do you see the northern lights at this time of year and do you need to stay out on the tundra in order to see them. Many thanks.

      Churchill & Polar Bears

      by SandiM Online Now Dec 31, 2007 at 1:31 PM

      I've read the previous posting on Polar Bears and Churchill and have a few questions. Recently, there has been increasing exposure of Churchill and it's Polar Bear Tour packages. I'm interested in going up there and snapping photos of the PB's and other wildlife up north (I'm from Edmonton). However, I've looked at some of the tours and most of them specify me having to arrange my own transport to Churchill. Ok, expedia can't help me, and AirCanada apparently doesn't go there, so WHO DOES? How does one get from Edm to Churchill? I can guess I have to get to Winnipeg first, then take off from there. Any help? My travel agent buddy is on holidays so he can't help me! Also, has anyone had any experience with these tours in Churchill? Any recommendations? Expected pricing? Length of stay required? thanks!

      Churchill in February?

      by Babzz Online Now Oct 11, 2007 at 8:05 AM

      Hi all,
      what can I realistically expect/hope to see in February? From my readings, I understand that this is the best time to see the northern lights, but will I see any polar bears? I don't really have the opportunity to go at any other time of year unfortunately (to see belugas, wildflowers, birds).
      Thanks!
