Such a great Alaskan adventure. The Devore family made our family's visit to Alaska very special. Very accommodating and informative. All around great time. Can't say enough great things about our experience!
My friends and I searched high and low for an ATV tour to take, and we kept coming back to this one - the reviews were glowing, and something just said 'PICK ME!' We drove up and met Jessie, Dennis's daughter. She was going to...More
This tour has a little bit of everything - Talkeetna history, personal histories (the DeVores & whoever your guide is that day), gold panning, firearms shooting, photography, yummy food, and, of course, ATV riding. I highly recommend it for anyone who’d like a taste of...More
The four in our group took the morning ATV ride out to Dennis's homestead. The ride was perfect with blooming fireweed on one side, forest on the other, and a clear blue sky. The homestead is beautiful with an added bonus of a trout and...More

There are 2 different tour/rides you can do. We took the one without the lunch, shooting range, or gold panning. We took the ride only, that made 3 stops, one at the original homestead, current homestead (beautiful), and the path to the view of Denali.
Our cost was $100. per person - then we gave a gratuity to the guide. Plan to be gone 1.5 - 2 hrs. This was truly a highlight of things we did.
