Review of: Via Adventure
My boyfriend and I did the three hour loop with Sam yesterday. Sam was a great guide and really enjoyed it with great views of the mountains and surrounding valley. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Tahoe and something we will talk about with everyone we reminisce about our trip. Always felt safe and secure in the cabling system. Very much recommend.

Review of: Via Adventure
My husband and kids LOVED this experience. He said it was his best day ever! The guide made them feel safe and paced the experience well. They made friends with the others in their group. The views were incredible, and it made my teens feel so strong and empowered.

Review of: Via Adventure
We had a great experience the Via Ferrata was last week (09/04/202). First off our group was an older one (one 27 year old, the rest were 56-65). We are all in decent shape from hiking, but this was a challenge—one we were up to. We were a group of 6 and Dave was our guide—outstanding by the way. One of our group is a medical researcher as worried about your COVID protocols prior to going (I had sent him your video link), but he was impressed with not only the processes that had put in place, but the way the Via Ferrata team actually followed them. I gave Dave a heads up that my 27 year old son has autism. He is high functioning and we have found out that experiences like this have made a difference in his development. (In addition to just spending 3 years living with us in Singapore, we have canoed the Upper Missouri River and Boundary Waters, done Yosemite’s High Sierra Camps, as well as traveled A LOT in Asia and Europe.). I wasn’t worried, but wanted to give Dave a heads up. Walking the trail back down Dave said he had never seen a learning curve like Christopher’s. The first 20 minutes were a bit of a struggle in the motor planning necessary to get the caribineers through the plates. But then it clicked. So even the switch in the middle of the monkey bridge was not an issue at all. He just did it. (This was the kid that would not do a ropes course in 4th grade!) What a boost to his confidence to complete the course. And everyone else had a great time, although some were spent by the end. We celebrated with a beer at the Irish pub in the village. Good times.

Review of: Via Adventure
Via Ferrata's rock-climb near the tram line at Squaw Valley Resort in Lake Tahoe provided the best views of the mountains, all while on an exhilarating climb up granite rock face. We got so lucky with our guide Isaac. He was professional, yet easy-going, and a very personable guy who we had the best time talking to. We owe most of the fun to him. Definitely recommend for anyone who likes a good adrenaline rush.
