This tour led by adrenaline junkies who have no patience for beginners or women over 50
Aug 2021
I had a terrible time, infuriating in fact because of how I was treated on this tour.

First of all -- they should not lie. Here is what is written on website:

This tour is a great tour for beginning ATV drivers or individuals who have never had an opportunity to experience driving an ATV.

I also called and asked if this was something someone my age and experience level should skip and was told, it was absolutely something for me and I would be completely comfortable.

LIES! There was no patience shown by the adrenaline junkies (Charles and Evan) who led this tour. Being one of two women in their 50s on the atvs, we were treated so poorly. Very quickly into our ride, the guides humiliated the other women by removing her from the atv to ride in side by side which she later said really pissed her off and then about an hour later, after doing my best to keep up on a ride
through nothing but giant mud puddles -- not one chance to look at the beautiful scenery, they did the same to me --stopped the tour and completely humiliated and insulted me. In my book, that was flat out age discrimination -- removing the two women in their 50s from a tour advertised to be for beginners.

I thought this would be a nice ride to see the beautiful scenery of Denali, it was anything but. The guides were driving crazy the entire time, hooting and hollering about "let's get muddy". We stopped at two scheduled stops (one was on private property that they laughed about when they acknowledged we should not be on) and stopped once for a moose. That was it. The website says you can stop whenever you want -- ha! Another lie. I told them that I would really like to see some of the scenery but they said we would on our scheduled stop.

Our driver on the way back mentioned he had been one of the tour guides in the past and I asked him if he rode crazy like these guys did. He said, no, you have to let the people enjoy the beautiful surroundings ---. EXACTLY what I had signed up for!

I will also add that the food was cafeteria food and with the great food we had our entire trip in Alaska, I wish we had not wasted our money on that.

The whole thing was such a disappointment that I wrote a very reasonable email to the company to advise them of what happened so they would be able to train their staff -- and they did not even bother to respond.

Find another company to do this type of excursion with. They simply do not care and will say anything to get your money and won't stand by their "promises".

Fun and adventurous outing!
Very enjoyable outing. 4 of us, ages 65-70, with Ed as our guide. Saw moose early in the tour. Outstanding views, knowledgeable guide, and just enough hills and rocks to make the trip fun and adventurous. Lunch afterwards was outstanding. Highly recommend.

What an awesome VALUE
Jun 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed our ATV trip. It was fun! But, OMG, the food we were served afterward was a feast. I expected a sandwich or something, but the various dishes just kept coming and coming. This was DEFINITELY the BEST VALUE of any of our Alaska activities.

Nice ATV experience but meal missed expectations
Jul 2021
It was our first time doing a ATV adventure so we really enjoyed the tour. The trail was challenging with great views. Guide was OK. Kept us on trail but did not add much in terms of commentary. Was helpful throughout with helping take pictures. The meal was very disappointing. There was variety but most hot food seemed like it had been pulled out from freezer and quickly microwaved. Our sloppy joe / chili had chunks of cold meat. The chicken wings had no flavor. The pulled pork was the only good part of the main course. I was not expecting a gourmet meal but this was a meal I would have skipped. The complimentary pick up worked well but we waited over 30 minutes to get a ride back to hotel. Set your expectations appropriately and you will have a good time.

Backcountry side by side tour and meal
Jul 2021 • Couples
Evan was our guide for the ride. He was very enthusiastic and for only being there for 1 1/2 months he seemed to know a lot about the area. It was a good ride with plenty of stops for photos and questions. The meal afterwards was beyond good and more than we excepted. We thought we were going to eat on the trail, but glad we didn’t. We got to wash up first. Overall this is a great company.

Fun ride and delicious dinner
Great time rolling thru the backcountry around Denali. Seemed like the time went way too fast and we were done just in time for a delicious dinner. Evan was our fantastic guide and he made sure everyone was safe and having a good time.

Great fun!
Jun 2021
My daughter and I had a great time exploring Alaska on the Side by Side ATV Adventure. Our guides Andrew and Luke were personable, friendly, and knowledgable about the area. We would stop occasionally and the guides would share information about the area we were in. The Side by Sides are great if you want to share the driving or if you have kids who are too young to drive. A great time was had by all. Afterwards, we ate at the Blue Diamond. I would recommend this fun activity!
