The guide was the best! He explained everything and the snowmachines were easy to use. I did a 2 hour one and I couldn’t believe the scenery and how I handled it.

My snow machine tour with Rodney was awesome. I had never been on one before but a few practice circuits of the office and we were ready to go. What a backyard to explore, it was beautiful and we wound our way through narrow trails, forest and the Chena Lakes where you could

It was my first time I loved it, I can only compare to my friends's experience, that they had more fun, they stopped more often to have fun, going around, taking videos of each other. We just only went in one lane. The view was breathtaking tho! I honestly loved it, I just

I have multiple trails to choose from for my snowmobile adventures. The trails are chosen, by the guide, based on the customers' level of driving ability. We do not allow drivers to video/photograph while driving. Passengers are welcome to video during the snowmobile adventure. Thank you for snowmobiling with Rod's

Our guide was very sweet and helpful and the trail is breathtakingly beautiful, winding your way between frozen roads - it was refreshing experience.

I booked the tour because all the good reviews and pictures online, but I don't have a very pleasant experience. It was 7 people in my group. All adults. There was no presentation, no welcome speech and what is even worse? there is no stop while we were driving. The guide even

This customers experience is not typical on our snowmobile adventures. I have scheduled photo stop locations on all trails on all snowmobile adventures. A group of 7 people would have a private tour with Rod's. If a group has a driver that wants to drive slow; I cannot/will not force the slow driver to drive faster than they are comfortable to safely drive. I ask that this reviewer contact me directly so I can complete any necessary corrective action with my guide. I can personally guarantee this is an isolated incident.
