"Really fun break from the Las Vegas "

The baja chase was one of the best things I've done in Las Vegas! It was the first activity in our (mini) bachelor party and (with all due respect to the Spearmint Rhino) I think it was the highlight. They send a shuttle to pick you up and take you out to their offices by the speedway. Our driver was a nice guy and gave us a good rundown of what we could expect. The check in process was easy but maybe could have been a bit more organized and a touch quicker. Back into another shuttle for a 10 minute ride out into the desert and then we were off.We had the 1 hour Baja chase and it felt like we did only 10 minutes of it. IF they had offered any deals after the hour to extend our time, we would have done it in a heart beat. they drive you back to get your phone/wallet etc and then shuttle you back to your hotel.
I have never driven a dune buggy before, and I'm hooked now. I need to buy a dune buggy.

"Fun Ride!"
We took the four-wheeler adventure. I had never driven a four wheeler, but they were automatic and the guide gave us good instruction as well as time on a track to get comfortable before taking off into the desert. The ride was incredible! Fun riding and awesome views. The guide set the pace compatible to our group. I would definitely go again!

Review of: Valley Of Fire Buggy Tour
Robbins rocks as a guide. When you say out loud “oh shoot” (can’t swear in review) as you are driving and your wife is laughing. Well then you are with Sun Buggy! We had an absolute blast with every part of our adventure! Safety is a priority first fun is a very close second. Can’t wait to visit Vegas again....

"One of the best thrills of my life"

The dune buggy chase was the highlight of my Vegas trip, and one of the best thrills of my life. The instructor is driving is buggy in front of you (because he knows where to go without hitting rocks etc) and you chase him. The faster you go, the faster he goes. I think it goes as fast as 30-35mph. The standard is half hour for $200 but you can buy additional ride time at $100 per half-hour. I initially booked for an hour. They let you return to the base after half hour and rest. I just couldn't stop after the first hour, and paid for another half hour. The whole staff is very friendly. Mike was my instructor. I went on a weekday and I was the only customer, so I think I got a more personal treatment. During the ride we did hit a few snags -- my buggy's engine started running a little weaker after 20 minutes, and another time the instructor's buggy lost a tire. In both cases, a replacement buggy arrived to the scene in about 5 minutes, and of course they extended the total ride time in order to make up for the lost time. They build their own buggies. They offer free hotel pickup and dropoff. It takes about 15 minutes to get to the shop from the Strip, and after watching the safety video at the shop, another 5-10 minutes to get to the starting point in the desert. Use the bathroom when you get back to the shop after the ride, and you can take a quick peek at the buggy factory in the back. If you have a GoPro action camera, take it with you. They told me they have mounts for it.

"One of the Best Things to do while In Las Vegas!!"

Heard so much bout this, that on my trip to Las Vegas i had to try it for the first time and lets just say that it was worth every penny. Wish i could have road longer but my fiancee had enough of the jumps and sand lol!

"A fun time and highlight of our Vegas trip "

The 30 min Chase was enough for all of us to be thoroughly entertained. The hour would have been too much for some of our party.
My buggy broke down (overheated) halfway through but the guide swapped it out immediately. Overall, it was a good experience that I recommend for anyone looking for some desert driving fun!

"Super Birthday"

We spent a birthday weekend in Vegas and booked Sun Buggies. It was an amazing experience!

We were picked up and dropped off without a hitch, enjoyed a mini-tour as we picked up and dropped off the other riders. Everyone was friendly and was there for a good time.

It was thrilling and exciting. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. An hour was perfect for us. We would definately do this again and would recommend it to others.

"Bad A**!!! Super Fun!"

Booked this trip as a last minute activity and it was totally awesome! Safety was key and they instructed you on everything. All of the staff were friendly and really informative. Our guide was Frank the Tank, and he was cool and helped us when native in the group hit stuck. Fast, furious, and a blast!!!!

Will definitely recommnd to anyone who wants some great fun in the desert

"Get Dusty!"

Visited recently whilst with friends, and we had a fantastic experience. We had the hour package, and having done "follow the leader" driving before, I thought it would be a bit tame, but I was totally wrong. It was thrilling, brilliantly managed, and with lead drivers that were great at helping out when you get it wrong, and setting the right pace. What a blast!
Wear clothes you don't mind getting dusty, and expect a thrill that may leave you feeling like you've been in a washing machine (in a good way), and perhaps don't book a table for lunch straight after - you'll want a shower...
Great fun.

"Just Awesome"

What a great ride. The guides were great, they really gave us an exciting ride. When you come to Vegas step off the strip and hit the dunes. Great adventure and don't worry, 30 mins is quite enough!
Simmi S. 

"Once in a Lifetime!"

This is CRAZY stuff, Dune Buggying through the Nevada desert! Scary and awesome at the same time. Go with these guys, their Dune Buggys are custom built, nuff said!

"Best in Vegas, weather permitting."

I went in December, it was in the 60s, I had a great time. It's cool, its different, its worth every penny. It's more like a moto track than a sand dune. There are ramps and walls and jumps and drops and you have to keep your car under control while sliding this way and that, its a great activity

"The Real Deal"

Just got back from a trip to Vegas and have to say that this was one of the highlights!

Pick up at Hotel was on time.
Quick trip to facility where training was fast but complete.
Short trip to Dunes was entertaining.
And No...The race track is not full of real poeple who drove there in one car......but thanks for asking. Too funny!
We were in the cars and ready to go 10 minutes after ariving at the Dunes.
Guide was EXCELLENT and after making sure we could keep up he really took us for a ride. We went with the full hour package and I recommend doing the same.
We did have one buggy blow a tire when my bud smashed into a rock but they had a new buggy there in less then 5 minutes and we were off to the races again with time added on to make up for the delay.
Pick up in the dunes took 10 minutes but we were enjoying chatting with the guide about the city and his experiences so we did not care in the least.
glad to have the chance to leave a tip for the guide when we returned to the office (left wallet in locker) and thank the very kind lady at the counter for a great day.

"Crazy Fun"

I never thought that tooling through the desert in a dune buggy could be so much fun!! The staff at Sun Buggy is amazing (make sure you ask for Frank as your guide!). Their first concern is safety and they make sure that everyone is comfortable with the equipment before letting you take off. The views of Las Vegas are amazing and the ride was so much fun, next time I am going to actually drive!! This is a must do in Vegas if you like adventure, the outdoors and plenty of adrenaline!!
L.V.G.

"Simply Awesome"

 

Better than any show, a real experience.
We had a great time, the staff was friendly and helpful. The scenery was beautiful. The chase was very exciting and a little scary. This was by far the best part of our trip. We would do it again anytime 

K.B.

"What a thrill!"

I have to say I was a bit skeptical after reading some reviews about breakdowns and the elements you'd be facing, but am so glad I did it!! Had such an awesome experience. I was lucky and it was just me and the leader so it was a one person chase. It is very hard to describe the thrill of charging full speed onto a hill when you can't see the other side, and just have to hope that it's clear when you get there. If you don't like bumpy rides or rollercoasters, do not do the Chase! I had no breakdowns or problems. I did get stuck once, but the leader came by and helped me out and I was able to make the jump on my second try. Also, 30 min is a lot, I don't think I could handle any more even if it was free. Do not hesitate to give this a go. Just enjoy the ride!

"This was the highlight of my Vegas trip!"

There isnt one single thing I would change. The people there are friendly and fun. The ride itself was amazing. I nearly peed my pants it was so scary at first but after that initial shock of how hard core this is I had the most fun I've ever had. Best attraction in Vegas. A must do!

Kristen L.

"Once in a lifetime!"

Went on the Mini Baja chase with my boyfriend. Not just an ordinary ride through the desert, but an extreme adventure. Had an adrenaline rush for days. We still talk about it years later. A must do in Las Vegas!

"Birthday Trip"

Took my Girlfriend to Vegas and this was one of the highlights of the trip. The chase was a great way to go get dirty and have some fun. Make sure to take a Go Pro to record your adventure as it was made for some great memories. Highly recommend and will go again soon.

"Load of Fun"

I did the Mini Dakar (which is the mini baja and the valley of fire tour back to back). The cost was $500. The tour lasted about 6.5 hours in total. I’m sure it would have been a little longer, but I was the only one on that tour that day. That worked out very well for me because I didn’t have to wait for the tour guide to wait on others or worry about following anyone, other than the guide.
Ryan was my guide for the day. He was very hospitable. All of the staff was nice though.

The tour starts with them picking you up from your hotel, then taking you to their facility, which is near the Las Vegas speedway.

For this tour, the guide drives you about 45 minutes to the Valley of Fire area. From the road it’s harder to see the reddish-orange rock structures, but inside it’s quite cool. It’s a vast acreage, although I’m not sure of the exact size.

For this part of the tour, I was on an ATV. It lasted about 2.5 hours. You’re allowed to stop and take pictures often. There are many “structured” stopping points, about 6 or 7. There’s one bathroom facility about 20 minutes into the ride. Beyond that, no bathrooms, so plan accordingly.
There are some really cool rock formations out there, including some Petroglyphs.
If it’s during the cooler months, take a jacket, as the rocks provide a lot of shade in some areas and you’re going relatively fast, at least fast enough to make it chilly. If it’s during the summer, I’m assuming you’re going to be quite hot. It is the desert after all.

The ride was a lot of fun. There were a lot of bumpy roads, tight turns, & narrow paths though. So if you don’t like bumpy, do not go on this tour. The scenery out there was quite nice. Therefore, I was often torn about trying to go fast on the ATV or stop, slow down, and take pics. Then I remembered, this was an ATV tour, so I sped up and began only taking pics at the designated spots.

After the ATV portion is over, you will stop off at a place called Tiffany’s for sandwiches, which is included in the price of the tour. They have good sandwiches, but it’s much like a subway, nothing too extravagant.

Then, it’s about a 45 minute trip out to the dunes, where the Baja chase on the dune buggy occurs. This was a blast and unlike anything I have done and I own 2 dirt bikes and a racing bike. This was an hour long chase. You are following the guide the entire time, that is, if you can keep up. But don’t worry, if you lose sight of him, just stop and he will come back and get you.
There is no power steering, so get ready to use your upper body strength to navigate the buggy.
You will be going up and down the dunes at top speed most of the time, which is about 45 mph. What a rush! Often times you have no sight of where you are going to end up. You will be flying up a dune, unable to see where you will be landing. You are completely trusting your guides experience that there is something to land on. This was a ton of fun. Make sure you follow their lead though. If not, you may end up somewhere you don’t want to. There are some pretty steep jumps and some narrow ridges, so again, make sure to follow the pack. I kept an eye on the guide's tire tracks most of the time, so I could see what angle he was going up and down the dunes at, because there are some precarious spots where you can get stuck. I got stuck one time, but the guide, quickly found me and pulled me to freedom.

This is a very aggressive tour, but what a rush! Again, unlike anything I’ve done before and I am an adrenaline junky.
After the chase was over, we headed back to the shop, where the shuttle takes you back to your hotel.
It is expensive, but I think it was a lot of fun. There aren’t many things like this, so I think it is probably worth the money.

One last thing, you will get either very dusty or muddy, depending on the conditions. Don’t wear your good clothes or shoes. You’ll regret it.
I highly recommend this tour if you like speed, adventure, enjoy the outdoors, and want to do something a bit non-traditional.

"Sun Buggy Fun"

Very fast and exhilarating, great fun with very friendly and helpful staff. Shuttle bus from and to the hotel, and all safety equipment provided. Fantastic views from the top of the dunes. Highly recommended.

"Highlight of Vegas trip"

Fantastic experience! First class service, extreme fun. I had a smile on my face for the entire one hour chase. We liked it so much we went back the next day. I will not go back to Vegas unless dune buggin' at Sun Buggy is on the itinerary.

"Desert Adventure"

This was the ultimate desert experience! Our guide "Q" took us through an exhilarating obstacle of sand dunes and tough terrain. Q was very helpful (by helpful, I mean he pulled me out of a sand dune, twice) as well as incredibly kind. In addition, the staff were very friendly and made you feel comfortable before departure. I would recommend this to all visitors and locals in Las Vegas.

"An adventure on the Dunes"

I initially booked this through Viator as a birthday treat for my partner and booked for us to share a dune buggy with pick up from the Bellagio as that was the closest option to our hotel. Sun Buggy rang me up to confirm my booking and suggested if we both wanted to drive that we do a longer experience and we can then both drive for 30 minutes each. So I upgraded us to this package. They also arranged for us to be picked up at a location closer to our hotel. We were staying at the Vdara and there is a tour bus pick up point at the Aria.

On the day of our tour the bus picked us up at the Aria as arranged and the driver was early. He was extremely helpful and searched out some contact details of companies that we had asked about. He also gave some recommendations of places to eat that were just off The Strip so cheaper and not so touristy.

When we arrived at the center after completing all the necessary paperwork, we were given a locker to put our bags in that we did not need to take with us. They fitted us with a helmet and goggles. I had brought my own gloves with me. It was quite cold on the day we went out and gloves are highly recommended as the metal frame of the buggy feels cold, and you will need to grip on! We were also offered water to take with us.

We were then driven out to the dunes where the buggies were waiting for us. Our guide on the dunes was Vince. He gave us an orientation of how to drive them and went over health and safety with us. I drove first and being quite short just over 5 foot - I could not reach the pedals! No worries the guys gave me several cushions and strapped me in so I could reach the pedal and drive.

I drove for the first half hour chasing our guide across the dunes - fabulous. We then had a break for a photo stop and we swapped over and my partner drove - woo hoo. Being a passenger be prepared to get thrown around and covered in sand even though you are strapped in - a great adrenalin rush!

We were then driven back to the centre and dropped back at our hotel. All the team at Sun Buggy were great. Will definitely come back again. Highly recommend. 

"Awesome from Start to Finish!"

Wow what fun! My husband and I love to do physical activities while on vacation. We are not extreme outdoors enthusiasts but love a thrill! We did the 60 minute 2 man ride.
This was definitely a thrill ride! There were constant hills and we didn't know what we might face on the other side until we just flew over them! My husband drove 1st and didn't want to give up the wheel. I screamed and laughed the whole time he was driving. While I drove, I screamed and laughed and scared my husband to death! Of course that made it all the more fun! We will be back! Thanks to Willis (we think that's his name!) and the rest of the crew for keeping us safe while thrilling us on this most excellent adventure

"Family with Teens"

Had a Fantastic time at Sun Buggy! Family of 5. Teens 13, 14& 15. Sun Buggy allows teens with permits to drive with adult. We had an absolute blast. Paid extra for a full hour and did the Baja Chase. Our guide Paul did a great job! He sped up when we caught up and slowed down and helped when needed. He was very courteous and informative! The Baja chase can go as fast or as slow as you choose. Our group are thrill seekers so we went fast. Was pretty bumpy for me as the mom, but I hung in there!
Overall a great way to spend the afternoon and see the desert! March weather was mild so we went in the afternoon. If going during summer months, go early as afternoon would probably be hot!! Highly Recommend Sun Buggy and our guide Paul!!

"Best thing to do in Vegas, hands down!"

Absolutely the most fun I've ever had with my clothes on. It was a huge adrenaline rush. You have to keep the pedal to the metal the entire time. Not knowing what was on the other side of the dunes was really scary. Once you're on the other side, the guy you're chasing is already going over the next dune. My arms ached for a week. This is not for the squeamish or the weak. My wife rode passenger and was scared to death at first. When we finished, she was clapping with enjoyment. All the employees were great. It was a blast!!

"So Much Fun.. A Have to do in Vegas"

Everyone was friendly from the pick up to the drop off at your hotel. It was a crazy fast paced ride but nothing you can't handle. All equipment was provided as well as bottled water and was excellent. I would recommend wearing some kind of gloves though because I got some evil blisters.. Totally worth it though. I will never go to Vegas and not return to Sun Buggie! One of the true highlights of our amazing trip.

Jeff and Sara M.

"BEST Thrill ride in the desert!!!"

Amazingly fun, the staff was SAFE courteous and professional. Not a boaring follow me tour at all, it's catch me if you can.

"Adrenaline Pumping Sand in your Face"

I went to sun buggy with two other guys to celebrate my 40th birthday. Getting there and back wasn't too bad and the wait was a bit long to get started but once we got going it was a blast. I am an adrenaline junkie and made sure to fall in line right behind the tour leader. I stayed on his tail the entire time and managed to get airborne frequently as he really pushed the buggies to do some exhilarating moves. The other buggies couldn't keep up se he would periodically have me wait a minute while the found their way but I was glad to stay close to fully enjoy the experience. Even the guys who couldn't keep up loved it though. It was just too intense for them to go all out. A great experience for all but if you like to really push the limit, definitely get first in line. These drivers are good and you just need to trust them. Follow their path and speed and you will be fine even if it feels like you will flip. This is the best activity I've done in Vegas

"dirty fun in las vegas"

Our family of 6 had a great time in the sand dunes outside of las vegas. the sunbuggy staff were polite, knowledgable and made a trip to the dunes a lot of fun. definitely do the one hour if you feel you can handle it, but the half hour was great for us. Louis was our guide and he took us into some great areas to make the experience more enjoyable.

Chuck H.

"Best Time in Vegas"

I had a GREAT time on the Mini Baja Chase last Friday 8/23/13. And will definitely be back to try out the Valley of Fire tour. This was a great way to spend the day. Its fun and interactive. After a quick video and some cool gear. They got us into these awesome dune buggys, for some fun fun fun in the sun. It was so relaxing and fun to zip about in the sand. Our tour guide Vince took us through some awesome hills and dips. I highly recommend checking it out if your looking for an awesome adventure and fun memories. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!!

"SunSensational Sandy Fun!"

My adult family & our significant others (ages 55, 58, 42, 40, and 35) saw 2 Cirque Shows, La Rev, helicopter ride to canyon from Exec airport, Steely Dan concert at the Palms and our Sun Buggy adventure was unanimously our favorite 30 mins during our 6 days in Vegas. We were concerned 30 mins wouldn't be enough but it was plenty. We girls had blisters on hands from holding wheels so tightly! Hotel pick up was on time & staff were friendly & fun & professional. No issues there. Would we do it again, heck yeah!

Tommy P.

"Awesome To The EXTREME!"

 

This is absolutely one the "must do" things to put on your Vegas check list! We went as part of a group with Wells Fargo. Of all the things we have done in Vegas for the last past 4 visits this was by far the most fun! Jesse was the best guide you could ask for. When you go you should ask to have him. He was very patient, fun and professional. My husband had a belt brake on his buggy and Jesse had it replaced in under two minutes! He even let him keep it as a souvenir, which was super cool of him. He kept up with us great and had just the right amount of fun and adventure without being more than you want to handle your first time out. You can tell that he truly loves his job and it reflects in the EXCELLENT customer service he bestows upon you! You will not regret this trip or the money spent! A lot better value and story to take home than the slots! Thank you Jesse and the entire team at Sunbuggy!

"OMG!!! what a ride "

Omg what a ride! this is one hell of an activity! we loved every minute of it. The scenery was amazing and our guide Vince was brilliant. You really need to put this at the top of your must do list when in Vegas, worth every penny!

"What a ride!"

Fast paced and intense. It was a blast with a very fun crew running thing, Fernando was a fantastic guide to the great drop offs and fun places in the park

"We Love Sunbuggy"

If you're looking for an adventurous time of your life, Sun Buggy Fun Rentals is definitely the best choice. My boyfriend and I had a remarkable and enjoying experience here. My first impression of this company was that they are very organized and helpful! I was completely satisfied with how Shannon helped me discuss the types of events they do there. After deciding with my boyfriend that we were going to take the one hour mini baja ride, this guy named Brandon took our reservation with no problem. He was very friendly and informative. When we got there, the environment was welcoming and had a good vibe. All the workers were friendly and funny. Before we could drive the buggy, we had to watch a short video for our safety and when we got to the dessert, they had to explain to us again the safety lessons. They emphasized our safety which is the most important to us. Besides that, they also made us feel that we will have a great time. And oh my goodness! We had more than a great time! That one hour ride my boyfriend and I had was probably the most amazing and unforgettable experience in our lives. We took turns driving the buggy and we were able to take pictures on our halfway break. The buggies were super fast but our guide made sure that we were able to follow him. I recommend bringing comfy outfits and shoes. The company already offers water bottles to stay hydrated. Overall, this is a one of a kind experience. If you're looking for excitement in your life, or you're visiting Las Vegas, then Sun Buggy is the perfect spot to consider.

"Amazing!!!"

Worth every cent. Everyone must do this at least once in their life!!! It is very very fun, but very safe. Amazing views too. They make it very easy for you. This is the ONLY tour in the country worth doing for dune buggys.

"Better than the Dukes of Hazzard!"

My wife and I had a great time! we both had our own buggies and did a two hour chase. I would recommend the 2 hours as it took us a little while to feel confident behind the wheel but once we did, we ran full throttle! our chase guy was awesome and took us on some great courses. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a fast paced adventure

"Tumbled and Jostled in the Desert"

SunBuggy is a pleasure to work with in-person and behind the scenes. Shannon, fellow islander and Event Manager, set me and my girlfriend up for an hour tour which is a must do if you're looking to get out of town for some out the ordinary fun. Staff members are full of character and lively, which for me definitely makes the experience just as much as the tour itself.

As a first timer to the world of dunes, I was a bit intimidated riding shot gun on the first half of the tour, but felt, after some encouragement, that my guide knew what he was doing riding those sand waves. Our guide said, "This is the only chance you'll have to drive like you've stolen a car." Point being, fear aside, my half hour was full of drifts, slow motion through the air jumps, and, of course, being jostled and tumbled around driver and passenger style.

I give the guys on dunes credit for working with buggys that seem to be no easy task. They are quick to show they aren't afraid to get their hands dirty, work as a team, and make for an amazing experience no matter what wrenches are thrown their way.

This isn't your everyday, scenic stroll through the desert. SunBuggy makes playing in the sand, being recklessly safe

"Playing in the Sandbox"

Came to Vegas to get in some off the Strip adventure and Sun Buggy delivered!..Paul(Tour Guide) took my brother and I with an awesome couple from Wisconsin out into the middle of the Nellis Dunes and we had a blast!..Felt like kids again!..Stopped on top of the dunes and watched the Thunderbirds training and many other planes just overhead!..Very nice bonus!..Think I finally got all the sand out of my teeth and nose but really wish I had a q-tip!..Totally awesome and definitely recommend it!..screws the slot machines and tables!

"Greatest Family Fun Day to Remember"

This was our first trip to Las Vegas as a family. Your staff and crew are GREAT! From the moment I booked the package over the phone, the staff was so very helpful and kind. Even when we were picked up at our hotel, the driver, Mark, was so informative, nice, polite and courtious. Then we got to the facility and the guys were running a bit behind due to the buggies brakes were in need of repair. The girls in the office as well as our guide, Fernando, could not appologize enough that they were running behind. They were all so polite and wonderful to work with. Then our drive to Valley of Fire with Fernando was great too. He was such a courtious young man and even helped us choose a Brazilian Resteraunt to eat at that evening. :-) We had an absolutely wonderful time!!!! If we ever make it back to Las Vegas as a family, I know this is the first place that our boys will make sure I make reservations at. The four of us will have this wonderful, fun memory forever! I would highly recommend this as a top 5 family "Must Do" if you vacation in Las Vegas!!!! Thank you so much to all the staff and crew at Sun Buggy Fun Rentals!!!!! 

"Perfect Bachelor Party Event"

Just a hands down perfect bachelor party event. That's all I'm writing there. If you're planning a bachelor party, and looking for something to do, stop thinking about it and do this. We did the 90 minute tandem ride and it was perfect. Done, sold, do it now.

"Great Day At Sun Buggy!"

I travelled with a group of 4 guys for the afternoon at Sunbuggy. We did the 30 minute chase and had a great time. They picked us up right from the hotel and it was about 30 minutes to their office out near the desert. It was a very smooth process from start to finish and we had a great time. It was the highlight of my trip. Would definitely recommend this excursion to others.

It was a warm day, not terribly hot, but it was fairly dry and dusty. They offered us water as soon as we entered the shuttle and there was lots of free bottled water available throughout the excursion.

Our guide Fernando was fantastic, and he took us on a great ride through gravel trails and dusty sand dunes.

There were lockers available for us to store our sunglasses, wallets and cameras. 

"Do the Baja Mini-Chase !!! What a treat!"

From the ease of on-line booking to check-in, Sun Buggy is professional and helpful. After check-in, the trip to the actual riding area was short and informative, with our driver answering additional questions we had. Upon arrival, We were introduced to our guide, Vince, and that is when the fun really started! Vince reviewed our safety instructions, and then gave us the guide's version. Step 1: Once started, push the pedal on the right to the floor! Step 2: Try to keep UP! When asked about the pedal on the left, he explained, he wasn't really sure what it did since he never used it! And then we were off! Bumps! Drifts! Jumps! Spins! Got it all in bewtween pedal-down full out madness! Thirty minutes went way too quickly! The smiles on my son(23) and wife's faces when we were done said it all. We chose wisely!

"the reason why I want to go back to Vegas some day"

I read the review, wasn't convinced due to "the buggies break down" and "they are slow" so didn't book before my trip. I was tempted to do the exotics racing but finally opted for the Sun Buggy mini-baja (1 hour). After doing a full day of Tom Car in the Sedona trails, I thought that this dune buggy stuff would be a waste of money but boy was I wrong:

- They are fast. At least mine was. Can't complain about lack of top speed. A guy in our group couldn't keep up and said that he had a slow buggy but he was the one with the least driving experience so that could be it. I'm not surprised that they sometimes break down, they really take a beating.
- It is bumpy and you'll get many "oh sh***" moments so this keeps you focused and the blood pumping. You'll do plenty of drifts, climb plenty of dunes, spit quite a bit of sand.
- I must have caught 3 feet of air when jumping off one of the dune. Wow. Simply awesome.

I am a big fan of fast cars and go-karts and was extremely tempted by driving an exotic but after 5 minutes in the dune buggy I knew that I had made the right decision. It was a blast.

This was the highlight of my 10 days trip in Vegas, Death Valley, Machine guns, Cirque du Soleil, Grand Canyon (south rim) and Sedona Az. I covered lots and finished my trip on a high note with these guys. They are a good part of the reason why I want to go back to Vegas some day.

Disclaimer: This is NOT for everyone. You must enjoy driving (I'm the old guy that drifts shopping carts with my kids in them) I told my wife to not come with me there since she has a bad back. That thing was rough even for me.

"This dune buggy tour is definitely the most unique tour I have done in Las Vegas"

Wow! I read other reviews about it being a "roller-coaster ride" but did not realize how true this was! This dune buggy tour is definitely the most unique tour I have done in Las Vegas. This tour is not for the faint of heart; we drove quickly through sand dunes, flew off high cliffs and endured bumpy rocky paths. I highly recommend this tour for those who love speed, adrenaline rushes and seek a unique experience in Las Vegas. You will get completely covered in sand so plan ahead on what you are going to wear!

"From start to finish, this experience had quality written all over it"

From start to finish, this experience had quality written all over it. The mini bus arrived at our hotel bright and early so we didn’t have to mess around with taxis and dropped us back off at the front door afterwards. I had a dune buggy all to myself which was great fun and when I managed to get stuck on the top of sand dunes (it happened A LOT), the guide was always quick to help and get me back on the tour! Not at all for the feint hearted, this was as much fun if not more than I expected and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is on a Vegas trip and wants to do something a bit different. Wrap up well in the winter as it gets VERY cold and try and go for one of the buggies with the covered fronts, believe me, you will be thankful for it afterwards when you aren’t completely covered in sand! I would definitely want to do this again on my next trip.

"It was definitely a high point of our trip"

This was our first time in Vegas and our first time on a dune buggy. We had a blast and it was definitely a high point of our trip.
Thanks!!!!

"Everyone who goes to Vegas should give this a try"

Everyone who goes to Vegas should give this a try- it was a blast! My wife and I took a two seater out and the guide was nice enough to stop half way so we could switch seats. Great experience for any off-roading enthusiast!

"Sony PS3 Motorstorm Press Party"

Hey all,
I'm sorry this is coming late (hell of a week so far) but I did want to say thank you very much for helping to create a great event
for us and our media guests. Everyone had a blast, with many of the media saying this was by far the best event they've
attended. I'm almost disappointed because the real buggies just about trumped our game!
But seriously you guys went above and beyond the call of duty to work with us and basically take over the site for the
entire day. If we get a MotorStorm 2 I will definitely be back in touch for another event!
Thanks guys,

"an adrenalin rush of serious magnitude"

I just wanted to drop an email and thank you and your staff for providing myself and my associate with one hell of an afternoon.
Our trip to Vegas started with riding our Harleys from Phoenix to Vegas with the Phoenix leg of the Mopars at the Strip Cruise
In.Then we had 3 days of Hot Rods and Drag racing. We thought that was going to be the highlight of our trip however, as great
as that was, the Buggy excursion we had with your company was phenomenal. We decided to call upon your services on Sunday
mid-morning on a whim and your staff was more than accommodating in getting us set up for the afternoon. From the minute the
driver arrived to the time we were dropped back off at our hotel, we were treated as professionally as one could ever expect. You
provided transportation to us even though we were 20 miles from your facility. Once we arrived there, the staff were professional
and personable. We were offered lunch as well. After the brief but informative orientation, we were taken out to the area and met
by additional staff who were just as courteous as everyone else we had encountered previously that day. I believe our guides
name was Dustin, and if I am mistaken on his name I apologize however, names were not what we remembered from that
afternoon. It was the sheer enjoyment and excitement that we experienced that we remember. What a blast. While safety was
the main concern of your staff and specifically your guide, they took the time to make sure we would enjoy our day while keeping
ourselves in one piece. It was the total package for entertainment and an adrenalin rush of serious magnitude. It can't be
explained, it has to be experienced.
On another note, as a business, I must tell you that it was enlightening to see each piece of the puzzle come together as
cohesively as it did. It takes skill and dedication of all team members to pull together as they did, without any delays to speak of
and without any customer complaints whatsoever. Well done!!!
Again my thanks, and we're already discussing coming back just for the Amargosa trip and requesting the same guide. And it
won't be the last tour we take with you that's for sure.

"better than any chase I've ever been in!!!"

I've been to Las Vegas about 20 times over the last 15 years. Each time I take a different tour. Last week I rented your dune
buggy. I've been a Police Officer for 17 years and have been in many high speed chases. The dune buggy through the desert
was better than any chase I've ever been in!!! What a blast over the dunes and the razorbacks!! I look forward to this again next

The only thing I had to do was push the gas pedal and away we went, traversing the sand dunes and rock formation laden paths.  The desert was so beautiful.

"the highlight of their trip"

After living in Las Vegas for six years, I have finally found a great place to take friends and business associates for an adventure
away from the strip. I have been out with your guides five times in the last six months and each person I have taken has insisted
it was the highlight of their trip. Because you are so close to town Sun Buggy is a great way to spend some time outdoors and
not have to commit the whole day to the experience. Keep up the fantastic job!!!
