Attended the Adventure Tour with my girlfriend. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. Our group consisted of three couples, which was a nice size. It was our first time caving and we felt very comfortable with the pace. Definitely something "different" to do other than the usual hiking, sightseeing, and hot springs. The repelling was thrilling as was... More

We took the Adventure Tour on the first full day of our vacation and all of us agreed that was the highlight of our 10 day trip! Our guide, Steve, was extremely patient with me and looked out for me as I was concerned about my ability to participate. He helped me through and gave our family memories that will... More

Highly recommended tour. Our guide was awesome, knowledgeable, and allowed our small group of 2 to venture deep into the cave system to see some incredible features, and learn all about their formations in the process of squeezing through some very tight spaces. Only the fittest and thinnest will make it to The Squeeze Challenge. Do the full day tour,... More

We did the half day tour with Chris and it was awesome! Its definitely physically demanding, you will be crawling around on hands and knees and you will need to hoist yourself up and lower yourself down. You will get dirty and you will have a great time! Chris is funny, makes you feel comfortable and always has safety top... More

10/10 would reccommend this to anyone travelling through Canmore. The cave was amazing, and our tour guide, Calvin, was even more amazing. The hike was fun, and I had (a week prior to the adventure), sprained my ankle, and the whole group was super patient and made the whole trip really fun even though I was a half cripple. Honestly...

My husband and I did this tour in June, and it was an incredible experience. Our guide was great. He found many ways to push us to the edge of our comfort level and it was exciting to see what we could do. Many tight squeezes and dark caverns made it an cool adventure and a good workout. We learned... More

I have to give these guys 100% on the tour! Diana was our guide and she was suh a blast! We did the 6hr tour with her and I've done things I have never done before, or thought Id do. The laundry chute, rappelling, seeing the underwater systems and crawling in the dark. We (7 of us girls) had the... More
