I am so proud to have known Peter Armstrong since he knocked at my door when I was Director of Sales of Delta’s Airport Inn back in 1976.  He wanted to talk about Guest Service and how he could change the vistor to Vancouver’s experience onboard a sightseeing tour.  He has continuted that comittment to Quality Service ever since. 

You can to to and click on the souvenir section/library to order the book TRIP OF A LIFETIME which tells the story of Rocky Mountianeer.  It is a wonderful 15 year history of this ‘overnight success.  Tomorrow is the day that they will welcome thier ONE MILLIONTH GUEST onboard. 

‘This is one of the most deserved awards given out in the history of Canada’s tourism Industry.   Congratulations Peter!
