About
This is a truly Antiguan activity that gives you a view of the island from an angle no other excursion would. We are described by most as an off road rollercoaster ride through the back lands of villages and towns then to our secluded beach for a dip before we excite you again.

BOOK AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!!
Sep 2021 • Family
On Sunday, my Family and I, including 2 young children went on this Tour. We were super excited to enjoy a fun day out UNTIL we arrived. Owner and staff wears no mask, Buggies are a health hazard, my breaks failed, seatbelts didn't work and they were in terrible condition. No horn or way to notify anyone if there is an emergency and your at the back, the Tour guide just glimpses back ever so often. My cart broke down twice, so my son and I had to ride with another Guest. My Sisters cart broke down also and nearly toppled over as the guide / technician sat on the edge of the cart at the back (Totally irresponsible). 10mins into trip, her cart broke down, so had to have 3 to a cart instead of 3 carts (6 of us). On top of this, we weren't warned about the dust, so BEWARE as you get covered in it and possibly lose your sight by the end of the Trip. Take Goggles, not Glasses or shades.

When we got to the beach, they said 20mins swim, but we left after 15mins. Got back Owner didn't even look in our direction or apologize for the inconvenience. He was just focussed on the next group starting at 4:30pm. Carts are disgusting, not sanitized in between tours and TOTAL HEALTH HAZARD. No side mirrors, no hospitality, no refreshments and the list goes on!!!

Overall, a WAIST OF MONEY which is super disappointing as this excursion has great potential. BOOK AT YOUR OWN RISK....LITERALLY !!!!

Thank you for your feedback. We both know what happened that day and the fact that it was not precisely as you described but I appreciate the fact that you took such time to write this review. Our excursion may not have been the right choice for your group. We appreciate and encourage our guests to inform us if anything makes them uncomfortable at the time of the discomfort. It is a part of the briefing at the beginning of the experience. We also encourage you to wear goggles for the dust and mud, which we do offer for $10. We offer masks and or bandanas for sale also. The other persons on the excursion with you took these options and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You took only goggles for the children. You also already left with a chip on your shoulder about being a part of a group that had hotel tourists. As part of the briefing it is stated that this is a rough off road trail and breakdowns can occur. Once this happens the guide alerts base and another buggy is dispatched. This happened but as a gesture to not make the group wait to have another dispatched the guide hitched a ride on the back of the fully capable guest vehicle. Before this maneuver is done he usually asks if the guest is comfortable with this maneuver as some guests may not be. The ok had to be expressed or implied in order for him to proceed. I end this response by restating that I thank you for your response and encourage you the next time you have an issue with any service received please alert the service provider first to try to make things right prior to installing your bias on future patrons.

Worst tour on the island
Aug 2021
This is definitely a tour to skip. We booked well in advance and had the high energy 3.5 hour tour scheduled. We paid our deposit and the rest when we checked in. We arrived and did the paperwork for a 10 am departure. We were waiting on 4 people who had also booked. One couple showed up at 10am. By the time they finished paperwork it was 10:15 and the tour operator said we would go and not wait for the others. We spent the next 1:45 minutes going from paved to dirt roads and never got any information on where we were or what we were seeing. The buggies were old, not in good shape and things like seat belts, brakes and steering worked only sometimes. We finally arrived at a beach and had 15 minutes to cool off, then back on the buggies and 15 minutes later we were back at the tour office. For those of you keeping track, that makes 2.5 hours. When we were told the tour was over, we said we had paid for the 3.5 hour tour and were told that tour no longer existed. They said they were not aware that the website showed that and that our paperwork(from them) that showed the times was a mistake. We talked to the office staff and after quite a discussion the agreed to refund us the difference. All in all the worst tour we have taken anywhere.

Great Day Trip
The ride itself was awesome. It’s about 2 hours of driving the backroads and then about 30 minutes at one of the beaches to sit back and relax. Expect lots of dirt and mud. Buggies could probably use an upgrade but overall was great.

Dust Buggies
Equipment could use an upgrade but it made it through. Was more dusty than muddy but we had a nice time. Our guide did a good job to accommodate us all.

Don’t waste your time
Jul 2021 • Couples
Booked this excursion while in Antigua on our honeymoon & was highly disappointed. First, our hotel has two lobbies, we went to the one closest to our room at the agreed upon pick up time & waited. After waiting 10 min, our hotel staff said we were at the wrong lobby & they left us. The lack of communication between the driver & the hotel was really frustrating. We were later told by other participants, that the driver didn’t speak to the hotel staff at all before driving off.

I expressed my frustration & our hotel staff said we could pay for a taxi out there & they’d wait for us, which we took them up on because they denied our request for a refund.

First, the carts need to be replaced- they’re essentially a death trap. Our seat belts didn’t work & our guides wheel literally popped off his car. Everyone riding had some complaint about their brakes, gas pedal, etc.

Further, the beach they took you to was beautiful, but 2/3 of the ride is looking at tied up, emaciated cows/bulls. Not my idea of scenery. I think you’d be better off booking at trip with another company. I did something similar in Aruba last night & the professionalism between the companies was night & day.
