“Lots of fun for all ages.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I lived in Florence for 13 years before I went on one of Sandland's dune buggy rides. We took the big buggy with the mellow ride because we had our 2 year-old granddaughter with us. She had a blast, holding her hands in the air like on a roller coaster. And I got views of the dunes that I have never gotten on my almost daily walks along the beach and dunes. There are faster rides for the more adventuresome and individual ATVs to rent as well. Good fun for all tastes.

“Had a blast!!!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

We are a family if 4 that visited in August. We had the 30 minute Sand Rail tour and were disappointed in just one thing... We wished we got the 60 min tour. The ride was amazing and so much fun! We recommend this to anyone. I would live to do it again!!!

“Awesome ride!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Right from the first phone call, I was impressed. Cindy scheduled our tour and when we checked in she was very friendly and informative. We did the 1 hour trip for our son's birthday. Our driver was Mike and he was great! He explained different areas along the way and stopped so we could take pictures. It was so much fun because we felt safe with Mike driving even though it was fast and at times felt like a roller coaster! Haha! We will definitely do this again and recommend it to friends! I'm happy we did the full hour! Worth the extra money!

“What a Rush!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We went on the 1/2 hour ride. This was better than a roller coaster! Mike was our driver. He's had so much experience and was so knowledgeable I felt very safe with him. The views were amazing, and the total experience was so much fun. Make sure you wear something that can zip up to your chin - you end up with sand everywhere!! I would definitely recommend this and we will definitely go again if we're in the area.

“Great dune buggy ride!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

My husband and I took the half-hour ride with Mike. I was apprehensive at the start, but had a great time! Not only was it fun, it was informative, too. And we got some great pictures! Hopefully, will get to do it again some day!
