The Chinese experience in early Moose Jaw

The tour is well guided. Exhibits are well done and give a good flavor for how it was like in early days.

The tunnels are a combination of acting, history, local lore and use of local architecture. I don't want to give anything away, but I can say that if my history classes were as engaging as the Tunnels, I would know more about Canada.

Both tours are very interesting. The Capone tour is entertaining but might not be good for very little kids. The Fortunes tour is informative - explaining a dark chapter in Canadian history. Great value.

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Moose Jaw. A good experience for school-aged children, specifically ages 10-17.

I have a 12 and a 7 yr old and they both enjoyed the The Chicago Connection. The adults were amazed too with what we saw. The actors were great and you feel like your part of it. If we had more time, we would have checked out the other tour, you'll save $ if you do them both. Plan... More

Even though I live close to Moose Jaw, I had never visited the tunnels. We had hoped to see both tunnel tours, but the AL Capone one was closed due to flooding. The Chinese Laundry tour was well done and very educational. A definite must see to learn about some of our 'not so pretty' history in Saskatchewan.

Our family of 5 decided to check out this attraction. We had a lot of fun and laughed a lot because of our Tour guide, he was funny, entertaining and got the people involved in the tour. We learned a lot of fascinating information while having a great fun time.

We thoroughly enjoyed the bootleg tunnel tour. Although the first actor who played Miss Fanny could have put more effort into herself and the part, the second actor playing Gus more than made up for her lack of enthusiasm. All in all amusing, entertaining, and informative. So, we gave it 4 out of 4 thumbs up. Thank you staff at... More

"Passage To Fortune" is a well executed and informative tour that exposed the mistreatment of the Chinese immigrants forced to subsist under oppressive conditions with little chance of escape. The "Bootlegging" tour, on the other hand, was mostly silly with questionable "facts" presented in an amateurish fashion. If there is indeed a history of Al Capone and others utilizing the... More

This is our second visit to the tunnels and once again we were impressed and well entertained. Great learning experience for all. We brought my daughter back this year as she was learning about the tunnels at school and she found it fascinating. Would recommend this to anyone, but you need to be able to walk up and down stairs.... More
