    We walked, but wished we had rented bikes to do the whole 24 km return. We made it to tunnel 2 , was about the 3 km mark. What a fantastic trail. Very easy to walk - nicely grades and flat. The only tricky part of the visit was the drive up to the top…very rough. Wouldn’t attempt the drive on spring time or wet weather unless you have an off road vehicle. Would definitely come back and rent bikes to do the whole trail.

    Great moderate hike for solo, family (teens) or couples. The falls were well worth the trip as parts are fairly steep to climb. The water levels were low but the falls didn’t disappoint.

    Super fun and the owners are awesome!
    This is a great activity to do with friends to blow off some steam and be a little competitive at the same time. It’s always a good time!!

    We did the Potions room. This escape room was well thought out. Challenging but not frustrating. A fun way to spend an hour. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

    I booked my tour very last minute as I really wanted to get to the Myra Canyon and I had no car, so this tour was perfect! They easily fitted me in and I got picked up straight from my hostel! I joined the tour with another couple and the guide was so great at introducing us, welcoming us and making us feel at home. He was so knowledgeable about the canyons and the route and was so easy to talk to. He was so kind and friendly to me and taught me so much about this region and it's employment opportunities! He made sure we learnt a lot and had a great bike ride but also that we got all the touristy pictures we could want! The bike ride was very nice and relaxing witj some incredible scenery.Thank you so much for going above and beyond to care for us and for making my solo trip to Kelowna so much more special! This would be a great family friendly trip!

    Chose this over parasailing and ended with the best........at least in my opinion. I would 100% recommend it to anyone and everyone. Don't worry, you do not need to know how to swim. Just not be afraid of the water. And in my opinion, you'd mostly spend time in the air than in the water. I'd be back. 100000/10

    My friend and I rented our cruiser bikes (no gears and brakes on pedals) for 2 hours and were able to cover about 20km. We rode along the lake and then up through the Mission Regional Park Greenway. The scenery was varied and stunning. Tyler, the owner and operator, was great to deal with. We reserved our bikes the day before and they were in good condition when we arrived. Tyler had maps for those that needed them. We also got a helmet and lock. Everything from the booking through to the end of the ride was efficient and easy. The price for 2 hours was 15$. I would recommend Loop Cruisers. They are located just behind the Station Pub, just off the corner of Ellis and Water streets (at the north end of the waterfront). There is free two hour parking on the street.

    What an amazing experience!! I truly believe anybody who is able to, should try it. It has to be one of the most satisfying things to learn to do and the feeling of awe you get when you first take off remains everything you take off.

    Moreover, both Brady and Kevin were absolutely excellent instructors that insured the experience would easier and more enjoyable than one may expect.

    10/10 would recommend for anyone visiting kelowna.

    This was my first time parasailing and it was both exhilarating and peaceful at the same time! The staff was amazing and very focused on customer service! I would highly recommend it!

    We were looking so forward to our day with Luxury Lake Tours. Many of our friends have had such great experiences!

    Our captain Cal, was in constant contact, getting plans together for our day. We were going to go down to frind winery, the only lakefront winery, and grab some pizzas and wine for the boat! Then off to tubing and water skiing

    Mother Nature had other plans. The west Kelowna fire got tragically,
    worse, and High winds kept kicking up over the lake. Cal kept trying to figure out the best way for us to reschedule our trip, and to make it happen as it is so beautiful seeing the countryside from the lake.

    Unfortunately, our schedule was too tight. They were absolutely wonderful, honoring their insurance, and refunded back to our credit card immediately.

    I can’t say enough about the customer service, and how beautiful it would’ve been to see Kelowna from the water.

    Will recommend Luxury Lake Tours to anyone headed in the area.

    Took a trip with Len as our guide. He was very sociable and knowledgable about where/when/how to catch Kokanee and Rainbow. My wife and I brought two kids and each had a great day and were very excited each time the line would move. Thanks very much for a great day out!

    Every year we rent the 24’ Montego pontoon boat with visiting family and friends. It is always a very fun and pleasant experience. Yesterday was no exception…friendly and efficient check in and handover, boat is always clean and in good shape and perfect weather for our 4 hour morning cruise…thank you!
