I'd never driven a Tomcar before. It was fun. Because I didn't have a friend or partner, I was teamed up with another solo lady. She drove first then I drove on the return. I must admit I was hoping for a longer drive time...More

The crew was super friendly and informative. We got good directions and were still able to drive fast and have fun on the karts. We got a good amount of drive time for the price. Thanks Court and Rhianna!

The drive to the location was great. The driver answered lots of questions about the local town. We put on weather proof clothing provided and loaded up in the karts. Driving the karts was easy and a blast. I was the passenger, my husband drove,...More

Booked the Family Rainforest Adventure on the carnival Legend, August 19. Cost $250.00 a person, worth maybe half that. The whole "adventure" covered maybe two miles on a gravel road with some pancakes and marshmallows. May not be the same as the tour above, but...More

We enjoyed our Adventure Kart Expedition in Ketchikan. There was about a 30 minute shuttle from our cruise dock to the Adventure Karts. Safety gear was included: helmets with visors, rubber pants, and coats. The staff was friendly and fun. The karts were well maintained...More

You'll want to hit all potholes on these 4x4's with their heavy duty suspension. Although we did not go through any waters (slight drought happening) we did have a wonderful ride. Stops for photo opportunities and sampling the wild berries was an added experience. You...More

Avoid this excursion at all costs. We have traveled all over the world and gone on countless excursions. Adventure Karts was the absolute single WORST excursion we have ever had the displeasure of experiencing. The “karts” were filthy dirty and not very fun to drive....More

No way for a carrier to be strapped in properly. These are truly off road. Your 7 year old would enjoy it but I personally would not recommend it for a 4 year old. There are also only 2 seats per vehicle.
