Tourists who take the Tunnels tour are asked to pretend to be bootleggers in 1929, coming to Moose Jaw to buy booze from Al Capone's organization. As tour guide, Calvin, teaches tourists the ropes and how to stay out of the way of local police. People start out at Miss Fanny's club and end up in a tunnel, somewhere underground. And the only one who knows the way out is Gus, a.k.a. Calvin, one of Capone's goons.
It's very confusing down there. The Tunnels of Moose Jaw were kind enough to give the crew of "Finding Al" free range to film and we got turned around a few times. You do indeed need a guide.
