The guide was from a Soviet block country and had been in the USA for 2 months. She proceeded to tell us all about her life INSTEAD of about Alaska and the trip we... More

Great experience and excellent food experience. Enjoyed the group dining setting. Enjoyed the tour of the gravel. Did not see any wild animals which was a bummer, but not entirely in anyone's control. Would recommend for anyone who wanted some outdoor experience.

We enjoyed the relaxing wagon ride out to their rustic dining room with Paulina and Nina entertaining us during the ride. The food was fantastic... Many options to eat including salads, chili, ribs, chicken, and salmon. The dessert was fantastic too! We would definitely do this again! Thanks!

Just a quick shout-out to the phenomenal guide, Hannah, for her expertise and her wit. She certainly knew her stuff, and made me want to request her as my guide next time. She's a joy!

Went with my family, with me being the only one who had never ridden an ATV, so I was nervous about that. Our tour included some 'senior' aged people who didn't realize they would be driving the ATV themselves...but a safety video, choice of helmets and coveralls if needed and great Black Diamond team leaders Hannah & Cheyanne, put us...
