My wife (we are in our 60s) and I took the half hour dune buggy ride and loved it. I do not think the hour tour is needed to get a real taste of this experience. I would only recommend this attraction when the weather...More

We called on a weekday morning and signed up for an early afternoon drive the same day, the more sedate option. It was great! Lots of scenery, excellent driving and information, and just enough excitement on the big hills. Definitely bundle up; we had a...More

I took the bigger, slower ride. It was great fun and very informative. Our driver was quite good. He made it fun when we went faster downhill, but I felt safe at all times. He knew about the movement of the dunes and could tell...More

Got to enjoy something we probably wouldn’t have done on our own. The driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour more enjoyable. The cost was very reasonable. They really mean “ dress warm”.

We did the 30 minute tour, but wished we had done the 1 hour tour. If I had my 5 year old granddaughter with me though, I'd probably opt for the 30 minute ride.

We took a baby in a car seat and two toddlers on the big dune buggys without any problem. You may want to call and check with them.
