This is the second time we have taken a dune buggy ride in Florence. The first time, we had a "timid" rider with us so it was fun, but just ok. This time, we went with a different couple, and when we were asked what kind of ride we wanted.....tame or fast and fun....they said fast and fun!! We were delighted! Our driver was terrific and had been there for quite a few years and was very experienced. There were times we thought we would tip over, but never did. He stopped along the way and explained the islands and their habitat, and he took our pictures with our cell phones. I really have no complaints at all....but suggest you leave anything you don't want sand in back at your hotel. I am still getting sand out of the travel bag I took with me. You are provided with goggles to keep the sand out of your eyes, but you will have sand everywhere else! Suggest a shower when you get back to your room! And keep you mouth closed unless you want your teeth sandblasted.

What fun for our family reunion of eleven adults to ride the same buggy as Bob took us over hills that looked steep but were easy on us as he drove over the 63 mile dune. We stopped at one point to take pictures and feel the sand. He did a great job of explaining the evergreen islands and how the dunes move and shift. A great experience. And yes, we should have made a reservation. But waiting in the sun was not such a hardship.

I took my 13 year old son. It was hair-raising,literally!, but a ton of fun. Try to get reservations so you don't have to wait.

We went on a 30+ minute dune buggy ride that seated four and was driven by one of their drivers. We had the thrill ride of our life. It was great! I thought it was best to ave some one drive us because they did stunts we would not have dared to do. It was better than a roller coaster ride. Jonathan was our driver and he did a fantastic job. We went late in the day and did not have any problems with wait times.

We had a very fun trip on this with lots of excitement and thrills. The sights were incredible, the ride was fun, and the extra commentary was a nice extra while you relaxed before the next big rush.
