Abraham Lake

The Experience Experts program is offered by Tourism Red Deer to help local industry employees learn more about the city and region so that they can share those experiences with visitors. For the past 3 years we've worked with them to offer a series of tours taking front-line staff to the attractions so that they can experience first hand the many things to see and do in the area.

We're excited to collaborate with Tourism Red Deer and the regional partners this year to offer an extended series of tours, covering Red Deer and Central Alberta.

Attend as many tours as you wish, learning about the best experiences for your guest. Learn about local food tour options, find adventures that'll keep active families happy, discover Red Deer's art and culture scene or head out for a day of exploring in the West Country. Regardless of the option your choose, you'll get to enjoy the tour and then share tips and advice with your guests on the best experiences Central Alberta has to offer.
