History & Culture

Historically, the Canadian people are made up of many ethnic groups including the natives, like the Métis and the Inuits, and the emigrants from various parts of the world who moved here in search of a better standard of life. The arrival of the Europeans caused a clash of civilizations between them and the natives. The natives lost and the culture of innumerable tribes was destroyed. 

Today, Canadian culture is a mixture of British, French, and American influences and this can be seen in every aspect of cultural life, from theatre/films and literature to arts and culinary arts. July 1, 1867, also known as Confederation Day, is the day when Canada adopted its current constitution and became an official country. English and French are its official languages. A substantial number of Canadians identify themselves as being of mixed or multiple origins. Also, as the immigrant groups have settled in particular regions, they generally have retained their cultural identity and this can be seen as one traverses these regions.

Geography

Canada is the second largest country in the world – second only to Russia and yet sparsely populated. Most of this land mass is not very suitable for habitation and a large part of its population is concentrated in a small land mass. Canada occupies top half of the continent of North America and shares its border with the United States to the south. It is flanked by Pacific Ocean on the West and Atlantic Ocean on the East. As you go higher up towards the north, the temperatures go lower and weather conditions become harsher. Lower down from East to West is the more vibrant, livable part of the country that is huge enough to make room for all kinds of natural and man-made wonders. The West Coast has the province of British Columbia which is the most mountainous part of the country. Rocky Mountains is another beautiful hilly range replete with dense forests. In between are lush green valleys and further to the east are the Canadian Prairies. Central Canada has important provinces like Ontario and Quebec and some pristine lakes.

It Was Our 1st Trip Which Is Made A Memorable One

It Was Our 1st Trip Which Is Made A Memorable One

With flamingo tours, it was our 1st trip which is made a memorable one. Our tour manager Mr. kushal shah is just perfect guide.
On the very first day Mr. Kushal shah wanted us to have a great bonding amongst each other so that we get the best experience possible. He always tried to serve the best food and at the proper time. The thing that was best in him was that he always shared some or the other things related to the place we were visiting in an interesting manner. Mr kushal shah tried to give information about the place in an easy language understoodable by every participant and never meant to behave partial with anyone. A negative or say a sad point  was that the Orlando hotel which was felt comparatively poor quality. We were given quality shopping time and he also enlisted what activities are to be done in parks that are the best in that particular part. It was overall a very good and unforgettable experience. 
At last would say that hats off to the tour manager Mr. kushal shah.

The Best Of All, The Tour Manager Om Was The Best
The Best Of All, The Tour Manager Om Was The Best

The Best Of All, The Tour Manager Om Was The Best

This Message Is Directed To The Immediate Management Of Ms. Om Rathore - Om (Vaghela).
Recently My Wife (Geeta M And Myself - Both Residing In USA) Toured Canadian Rockies. The Tour Was Organized By Flamingo Travels. And The Manager Was Om Rathor (Vaghela). Yes, Previously We Did Visit Many Areas Through Conducted But This Canadian Rockies Tour Was The Best Amongst All. The Hotels, The Coaches And The Restaurants Were Great. 
The Best Of All, The Tour Manager Om Was The Best. Her Dedication To Customer Service Was At The Best. I Can Say, Without Hesitation, This Since  1988 To 2010 I Worked As Director Of Customer Services For A Multinational Company. Om Has Set The Highest Bar For Other Tour Managers In Your Organization. 
If I Have To Take Another Guided Tour, I Will Use Flamingo As Long As The Tour Manager Is Om.
