Fantasy RV Tours

I am considering a caravan tour with this company to the Canadian Rockies. I would appreciate comments, suggestions and/or concerns from the JOF.

We watched a number of RV tours in Alaska
Not sure if any were Fantasy Tours
Suited to people who want their campgrounds arranged for
There was a lead and a sweep vehicle. The wagon master and the tail gunner. The caravan didn't travel together but staggered departures
Of course this was a social experience. Some we talked to loved it. Others wanted out after two weeks as the itinerary was structured
I was underwhelmed by the parks they generally had to use but big rigs can't just go anywhere
Some activities and dinners were scheduled but I can't speak to your tour
Most said they liked the safety of others and the help in case of breakdown

It all depends if your adventure has what you want to see and do. And you really cannot digress

So we are booked for this tour. I would appreciate some insight on the route I have chosen. My ultimate destination is Banff, Alberta from Austin, Tx, through Jackson, NJ. I want to avoid the Canada diesel prices so I have routed myself to IH94, then to Minot, ND then on to US Highway 2 to IH15 in Shelby, Montana, then north to Canada. Would to you think?

Boring
We did much the same thing in 2012 when CDN fuel prices were through the roof

Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump near Lethbridge was neat though

We’ve gone west a couple of times since and vastly prefer the more expensive but scenic north Shore of Huron and Superior

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.
