We took this excursion with 4 adults and 5 children ranging from 11 to 5. We all had a blast. The boat ride to Haines was pleasant and the bus to the 4x4s was fine. The staff was very friendly. To be clear, these are Kawasaki "Mules" 4x4s, not four wheelers. Also, this is not a free for all, but... More

My 15 year old daughter and I went on this excursion from our cruise and loved it. Was fun driving the ATV and the scenery and views were lovely. But honestly the best part was the food. They cooked us the most amazing fish I've ever had! I want to go back just for that. Or maybe they will send... More

Hi Karen, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review! And we're very happy to hear you and your daughter enjoyed your time here. I'm happy to pass along our fish recipe. We use Krusteaz Tempura, Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) beer, and dill weed. The consistency is a little less than pancake batter. And we usually let... More

They have 4x4 vehicles that seat 2 or 4. We picked one that seated 2, and my husband loved driving up and down the mountain. Mark was our guide, and he was excellent. You can tell he loves Alaska and was very informative. We made a couple stops on the way up to see the gorgeous views, and then had... More

We stayed in Haines with Family during our west coast vacation to several cities in Alaska and Seattle. They recommended this trip and we were so glad they did as this was the highlight... More

We had a great time driving the gators up and around the mountain on our guided tour. If you are looking for a lot of adventure, this is really not the tour for you. It is guided and you don't go very fast, but we had a blast! The vehicles (2 and 4 seat gators) were in great shape (most... More
