Real dirty Ketchikan fun, four wheeling on the logging roads in the rainforest. Great views from the lookout point and a beautiful waterfall too. On this tour you can plan to get wet and muddy like a Disneyland water ride.

The kart location is in a formerly logged property, but the trees and other growing bushes are coming back. The 'road' is dirt, rocks and potholes. Fortunately, it had rained early so the potholes had water/mud in them. Our guides were Dion and Isaiah, the best. They had worked as fishermen before this job and knew a lot about the... More

The guided tour with Matt was great. It was short and sweet and well organized. The weather was gorgeous but the view was a bit fogged in. The waterfall stop was a nice touch. My favorite part was Shadow, the friendly shop dog.

This was our tour excursion pick on NCL Jewel, not difficult but you do need to know how to drive a little, lots of bumps rocky roads, but what a spectacular view

We did this tour as a family (2 adults and two teens). This was a fun afternoon driving through the forest. It was a great way to see the sights of Ketchikan and a lot more fun than a bus tour or walking through town. My teens really enjoyed it. We drove two person cars and both people had the... More

This was great fun. A lot better than shopping or some of the other tours offered. We gad a great time with our tour guides Brennan and Dion. At the stops on the tour they gave us information on the history and culture of the area. The karts where a lot of fun. We raced accross 12 miles of scenic... More

This was a great excursion during our Alaskan cruise. The Tom Karts are a blast and the young guides are very knowledgeable about the area. If it's dry, it's very dusty but not to worry - they sell bandanas. Would highly recommend it. They offer photos for purchase of your group on flash drives afterwards and the photos are awesome.

The brochure tells you they often see bears, eagles and other wildlife. I do not know how that can be possible as the karts are very very loud. There were two stops. The first a beautiful view overlooking the seas around Ketchikan. The second a much less spectacular waterfall. Although the first view was beautiful it is not much different... More

This adventure kart ride is a lot of fun! It's a great view and a nice drive, and my husband and I enjoyed it. We'd recommend it for couples and families that want a low-key "adventure" that is off the beaten path.

While in Ketchikan we booked this Adventure Kart tour and loved it! Hats off to the company for organizing amazing tour guides ( I believe our guides names where Isaac and Mandy)!!! From the start till the end this tour is jammed packed with thrills, scenic views and some amazing (new) information we haven't heard yet.
