“Incredible!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Great tours depicting two very different lifestyles hidden from the public eye. Really makes you think about our history in Saskatchewan and how far we have come. Passage to Fortune was a real eye-opener, very good actors and unbelievable but true story. Chicago Connection tour is a fun tour showing a very interesting time during prohibition.

“Chinese heritage”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

Go underground, virtually, to visit the tunnels. Partn of our cancadian history, lthese tunels were actually used for and by the chinese that came to canada to make a better life for themselves their family. They worked & lived underground in Moose Jaw and probably in every city in canada. Intolerable conditions and slavery but, still they succeded.! Find out an important part of our history. A must visit.

“Better than I expected!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

These are excellent tours and definitely open your eyes to a piece of Canadian history. There are 2 tours, the Chinese "passage to fortune" tour and the "Chicago Connection" tour. Both are guided by actors dressed in period garb and their personaes are awesome. Very good acting and story telling about the plight of the Chinese immigrants in the early 1900's and the rum running of Al Capone and his gang. I would definitely recommend both tours and would love to go again.

“Tunnels of Moose Jaw”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We took in both tours of the tunnels and found them to be quite realistic and at times rather sad because of the treatment of the Chinese workers. The actors were dressed in period costumes and portrayed the part of gangsters. At times the audience was drawn in by the acting and reacted with horror when there was a shooting! It is definitely worth taking in if you are ever in Moose Jaw.
