Making it up to Mom with the trip of a lifetime

Let’s be honest, raising children is no easy feat and chances are, you probably gave your mother a headache or two growing up. Our Travel Consultant Tobin admits he wasn’t the best son growing up who would sometimes forget his mother’s birthday or Mother’s Day. So the best way to make it up to her? Take her on a trip! But not just any trip… the trip of a lifetime through the rocky mountains onboard the Rocky Mountaineer train.

With Tobin living in Toronto and his mother living in Whistler, we decided to bring these two together to experience a week together in our beautiful home and native land.

“You get so busy in life and it’s important to take the time to spend with your loved ones. To have that time on such a great trip was unforgettable. It was a fanastic experience and something we’re going to remember forever.” -Tobin Howes, Flight Centre Travel Consultant
