Hoodoo Adventures puta on a great half day trip. We really enjoyed the downhill bike ride with amazing views and photo ops along the way. A picnic lunch to fill your belly before being chauffeured to multiple wineries was perfect. I would recommend this trip to everybody!

We met the shuttle at 6:50AM, loaded bikes and left Hoodoo adventures at approx 7:10. The shuttle suited our needs to transport ourselves and our mountain bikes to the beginning of the KVR in order to cycle back to Penticton.
To be honest, the price seems a little high at $80.00/person. But, the shuttle did serve its purpose.

* one other important note: a couple was travelling with their 14mo child, and had called in advance to book a car seat. Hoodoo adventures did not have a car seat, but offered a booster seat for an adolescent instead.

Thanks for your feedback.
We were most upset that the driver that day did not know we have 2 proper child seats in the building for just such purposes. We've always had these seats and thats why we told the parents we could accommodate the request.
The driver should have called a manager to find out where the seats are and we could have corrected this issue.
We deeply regret the mix up.

As for the price of the shuttle - this trip is 90 km and is always at least a 4 hour return trip depending on the traffic and the road maintenance that has been going on in east Kelowna for nearly a year now. Approx 20 km is up and then down a very bumpy and very steep gravel road - this beats the heck out of our vehicles and has us rebuilding the front ends and repairing brakes in our vehicles often.
We know of two shuttle companies that have stopped offering the service because they cannot make it work for under $100 per head, they also told us that they cannot keep up with the maintenance on their vehicles.
We have not raised our prices in over 5 years, but the price of gas, insurance, professional transport licensing, safety certs for our vehicles mechanics labour and labour for our drivers has all raised significantly.
You are entitled to your opinion for sure - but we are also entitled to defend our pricing and present facts to justify it.

Great service, Mike answered all our questions in advance, efficient transportation from Penticton to Myra Canyon. Bikes worked great, ride was fun, easy check in back at Penticton. We did the 40 km route last year and jumped up to the 80 km route this year. Would highly recommend

We hired the shuttle to take us from Penticton up to Chute Lake so that we could ride the KVR back down into Penticton. We also rented bikes from HooDoo Adventures. The shuttle was 100% worth every penny of the $45.00. We would do taht again in a heartbeat! However, the bikes left something to be desired. We were expecting more from the bikes. It was like they ran out of bikes and these were the only ones left. Good thing it was all down hill so that the technicallity of the bikes didn't matter as much but they were ill fitting and odd. Unless the bikes are upgraded, we will rent elsewhere next time to bring to the shuttle.

Just an overall excellent experience. Connor was very helpful in getting us set with our bike rentals, it was quick, and he also gave us excellent winery recommendations - highly recommend their services. Thanks!
