Testimonial from Osce Robertson; Central Council Indian Tribes of Alaska;

From the time I was pick- up from the Ferry terminal, my trip was great. I had the “Birdie” vehicle, what a great ride to get through the roads of Prince of Wales Island. Full equipped with everything you need. Thanks for great customer service –

Darren at Hollis Adventure Rentals is awesome! I had to make last minute arrangements for a vehicle so I could drive the 2 1/2 hours to Whale Pass. We made the reservations over the phone and Darren took care of the rest. He met me at the ferry in Hollis, had the vehicle ready to go and had thought of everything- even a GPS tracker, in case of emergency, which I greatly appreciated since I was traveling alone. He went the extra mile and took me to my place of lodging and helped expedite that process so I could get on the road ASAP. The vehicle was well maintained and reliable. Above all, Darren's caring, personable concern and assistance was invaluable. I highly recommend Hollis Adventure Rentals! - Laura Morgan, Idaho

Hollis Adventure Rentals was fabulous to work with. Darren was very personal and went the extra mile to outfit the vehicle with everything I wanted or possibly could have needed for my visit. Alice was well endowed with very nice features; fully equipped to provide me with a good time on the Island. I would gladly rent her again, and I will definitely use Hollis Adventure Rentals again for all of my rental needs on Prince of Wales Island in the future!

"Rented from HAR last summer (2009), and I intend to rent from them again this summer (2010). Their prices are very reasonable, and the service is great. From the very first contact, I felt like I was being treated like an old friend, rather than just another customer. Darren Lamp really seems to enjoy helping others enjoy the many benefits of the island."

Wow, what a beautiful place to vacation.......we wanted to write and thank you for providing us with such a well-equipped vehicle! Edward, the van we rented from you was in perfect condition with every possible option needed to make our vacation in Alaska joyful and easy! We are looking forward to renting from you again this summer! Take care!

In September 2009, our group of four hunters were very fortunate to connect with Darren Lamp and the Hollis Adventure Rentals family for our hunting trip to Prince of Whales Island. Their attention to detail, honest and open approach to do business, and focus on serving the customer was a bonus to our trip that we really were not expecting. They provided us with a lot of little extras that really made our trip less complicated and more enjoyable. We rented a skiff which was very well equipped and was everything we were told it was. We did experience some damage to the skiff from a rough low tide escape and Hollis Adventure Rentals was very fair in making things right. Our trip was presented with challenges due to last minute hunting regulation changes and the Lamp family helped us salvage our trip by filling in the holes we could not cover. After finishing our hunt, we felt we had new friends in Alaska and not just another business contact. Alaska travelers are fortunate to have Hollis Adventure Rentals as an option when wanting to experience the real Alaska. -

We rented a car from Hollis Adventure Rentals and it was extremely convenient. They had the car waiting for us at the ferry loaded, gassed up and ready to go. It came with everything we needed to explore the island safely. We traveled almost 1000 miles on the island in one week. If I do it again I would rent a boat and camping equipment.

"Last July my wife Audrey and I were heading to Hydaburg to visit family. We also have a house there. I contacted Hollis Adventure Rentals regarding an automobile to use while we were on the island. At the time, all vehicles were booked. Darren went out of his way and allowed us to rent his personal use Subaru. We had a great week along with a few Cohos. We're planning a similar trip this August and will be in contact with Hollis Adventure Rentals soon."

----Our experience with the Lamps was great. The boat we rented was in very good shape and did all we required of it. On my next trip I will try to rent a vehicle from them and go sightseeing.
