Terrific experience. Guide (Kelsey) was high energy, knowledgeable, and charming. Was quite cool today and we may have underestimated the wind chill—but no problem because Kelsey came with extra gloves, gators and wind breakers. She seemed invested in making this the best possible experience for us

Knowledgeable and friendly guide, Bob ended up giving us a private tour. Possibly the rain had something to do with it, but the trail was significantly protected by trees. E-bikes made for a comfortable tour and seeing moose was a bonus.

Kelsie was our tour guide and she was fabulous! Kind and so knowledgeable! Elly was there with the van and the bikes were perfect. We biked through lots of beautiful coastlines and learned lots of facts - I highly recommend this bike tour! Thank you Kelsie and Elly! You rock!

Good time. Kelsey did was a great guide - she found moose & bald Eagle. Good tour saw a little of Alaska most people don’t see.

Holly_T

The guide was fantastic! I was the only solo person, but everyone on the tour was so friendly that it didn't bother me. We took lots of breaks so the guide could give us more information about the animals and birds we saw including a bald eagle, mama moose, and baby moose. She talked about the great Alaskan earthquake of 1964 and let me share my story of living though it when I was a little girl many years ago.

I so enjoyed this relaxed ride through Kincaid on the coastal trail! Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, and they had extra windbreakers, gloves, water, and snacks for us. You definitely don’t have to be a super athlete to enjoy this ride (there was only one tough hill about halfway through). We stopped periodically to sip our water, appreciate the views, and learn some Anchorage history.

With a day to kill in Anchorage between our cruise and a trip to Denali, we wanted to do something other than sit around. Little did we know how great this experience would be. Our guide Van and driver Dan were super nice and helpful. They got us set up with bikes, helmets, and gloves and off we went. The ride is about 10 miles long, mostly flat or downhill, along the coast through beautiful trees and coastal foliage. At several stops along the way Van described the trees, plants,wildlife and scenery we were seeing. We also stopped at a memorial to the 1964 earthquake that was very interesting. This is an easy ride for all skill levels and a great way to see the coast. We even saw belugas in two different spots! We all agreed this is a great trip and heartily recommend it.

Brayleigh was terrific guide. We had several moose encounters and saw 6 in total. It was a fun 3 hours!

LISA_N

Such a nice experience and we saw a beluga whale and moose. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

The trail is amazingly green and lush with vegetation. My most favorite parts were the Moose we saw just walking down the path. And the end of the runway of the airport. Watching the jets fly right over our heads.
