My family loves dogs, but wasn't sure if this would be "cheesy" or not. We were so glad we did it. Danny Seavey was checking people in and he talked to us quite awhile about the history of the race and in the area. We were given a brief description of the equipment and a retired dog put some of...

I'm keeping 2 'stars' because I think if a guest/tourist doesn't know any better they would think this excursion is good enough, or even excellent... and the workers were nice. However, I have been to many other dog 'excursions' and this rates last for a few reasons. 1. None of the Seavey's were at the tour! I spoke to two... More

Ididaride, Manager at Seavey's IdidaRide Sled Dog Tours, responded to this review

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the tour. As you mentioned, we're the only tour that actually takes you for a dog sled ride. That means a little less talk and a lot more action, and you do have to go outside. Still with the exception of about 10 minutes, you're either on the covered cart, or in our 2000' sq.... More

We stopped in Seward to do our laundry before beginning our land journey in Alaska. Our cruise on the Radiance of the Seas ended in Seward. While at the Sip n Suds doing our laundry we picked up a brochure for Seavey's Ididaride (I did a ride). Our son, age 14, talked with the attendant at Sip N Suds to... More

seeing the real dogsled dogs upclose is amazing. my wife loved petting the newborn puppies. learned about how they choose the dogs, how they work as a team and then we got to ride with them on a dryland dogsled run. This was way more interesting than I thought it would be.

This is my second time doing the ididaride tours and it was just as fun as the first. Our guide (I cannot remember his name, he has the long blond hair) was very relaxed and told great stories. Basically I only came for the puppy time and the dog sled ride. These dogs love to run and you can tell... More

Loved the 'Real Alaska' tour. We are normally not tour bus kind of people as we enjoy exploring on our own and at our own pace. This tour however was great. I have a new appreciation for the grueling nature of the Iditarod now. I always sort of felt like the dogs were being forced to run, but after seeing... More
