We had Chantel for our Adventure Cave tour. She was awesome. Super friendly, funny, energetic, safe and full of information and stories. Having never been in a cave before, I wasn't sure how I felt about the squeezes particularly, but she was very encouraging and talked us through them all (we're glad we did, but you can also opt out...

I have to say this tour was really not at all what we expected but it was a great surprise. When I was told we were going on a Cave Tour I thought it would be a leisurely stroll through a cave with built in stairs to get in and out. I had no idea there was such a cool... More

We went to Canmore for my birthday and came across Canmore Cave Tours in our search for something fun to do. We were not disappointed! I am claustrophobic and had no problem in the cave. It's very open in most areas with only a few parts that need to be crawled through. It's a great workout and you will feel... More

My husband & I, 59 & 63, who are fairly fit did this trip with Steve, a very enthusiastic and excellent guide. We clamoured up hills and then down, on our bottoms, on our bellies and even on our feet. The caves themselves I found a little disappointing after having been to far more impressive caves in Australia. So I... More

Awesome adventure! Both my 10 year old and 13 year old can't wait to go back! Lots of steep climbing nod tight squeezes. It certainly was a challenge! Well worth it!

Brent was an amazing guide - knowledgeable, entertaining and challenged us to explore and try various 'squeezes' throughout the day. The adventure tour was well worth it and I look forward to doing it again the next time I am in Canmore. Cannot express how happy I am to have done this activity!

Max (our guide) was the best! - patient, funny, knowledgeable and loves what he does. Amazing sights and feeling being under the mountain. Be mindful that there are limited slots for each excursion- #s in the cave/day is regulated. Be sure to book early so you don't miss out. We almost did. Wear footwear you don't mind getting grubby. LOVED... More

We took the Adventure tour package on the face value of the description alone worrying a little about the price and the amount of time this activity was taking in our vacation plans (6 hours). I have to say that we were not disapointed. It was well worth the time and the energy we put into it. Everything was perfect,... More
