Amazing tour. It had not rain in the area for over 2 weeks so it was all dust but what a great time. The guides were very nice. One of them had to be rescued because his kart malfunction. They have the best photo deal ever: $20 for a stick with all the tour pictures. Will be back again.

Eating dirt is what you get with the Adventure Kart Expedition ($179), an amped off-road exploration of remote, private wilderness with amazing views of the Tongass National Forest and Inside Passage. U.S. ATV operations tend to be more conservative (read: less fun) than counterparts in Mexico and the Caribbean, but the guides on one particular outing, though safety conscious as... More

My husband and I did this adventure as an excurision from a cruise ship. We were picked up at the port and transported to the start point in the Tongas Forest. It was a bit drizzly and had of course previously rained so it was a bit muddy. Shane and his crew get you outfitted in rain gear including the... More

My group had a great time on this excursion and we even saw a family of bears (at a safe distance). The staff was really friendly. They have an amazing deal on photos...their crew takes lots of photos along your journey and then you can buy a thumb drive with all of the photos for just $20. What a deal!

Randon (Brandon without the B) was a fun and entertaining guide. The Tom cats are fun and easy to drive on this safe and sane trip into the woods rated for all ages. I've ridden dirt bikes for many years and would love to beat the heck out of one of these "karts" but that's not what the trip is... More

I wish we never did this tour!!! My husband picked this tour from our Princess Cruise ship excursions and it sounded like a fun time. We had a fairly large group that went, which was not a good thing. Once we were suited up with protective gear and listened to the safety/instructions from the guides, it was time to put... More

Sorry to hear of your disappointment, its not our goal with this off road excursion to give anything less than a fun time... That being said, we do take safety into account to the utmost, and the stops are mandatory to make sure we have not lost anyone on the adjoining road networks. We also set the pace of the... More

We had fun. The balance was right between keeping us safe and informed, and allowing us freedom. They also catered well for the young families. Seeing whales was an unexpected surprise. Go figure.

My husband and I went on the Alaskan cruise and one of our stops was Ketchikan. We booked this excursion through Norwegian. I honestly don't know if it is cheaper to go through them directly, but I found the prices to be comparable for a cruise excursion. We were taken about 30 minutes from the pier to this very excluded... More

We had a little trouble meeting up with the group to head over to the excursion, but after we got there, we had already forgotten about it! Jonnie helped us get our gear on, and off we went!
