Pick up at hotel was well coordinated with driver calling us directly. The check in, safety briefing and waiver signing process was smooth. There was then another trip out to the dunes to begin our ride. The dune buggies were very poorly-maintained with tire treads that were practically gone, etc. It was exactly 17 minutes of driving until our first stop where we had a chance to take pics and change drivers. We didn't realize that this time was burning our hour of driving time, because once we got restarted there was only about another 15 minutes of driving before we ended up back in the parking area for the drive back to the shop then back to the strip. 4 hours of time for about 35 minutes of driving for $350 per person!?! Not a good value at all. Other companies appear to have better equipment and prices so would recommend checking those out first.

We're deeply sorry your SunBuggy experience fell short! We guarantee our tour times and wouldn't cut anyone's ride short unless they requested it. Your feedback about ride duration and buggy condition is crucial, and we're taking immediate action. Regarding ride time: Your 35-minute driving time falls well below your booked one-hour experience. We understand the confusion about picture stops counting towards ride time, so we'll improve communication to avoid this in the future. Regarding buggy condition: Low tread tires are intentionally used on the front of buggies to prevent sand throwing, not indicative of poor maintenance. Every buggy is inspected and test driven between every ride to ensure a quality off-road adventure. To make things right, please reach out to our Quality Assurance team qa@sunbuggy.com . They'll be happy to credit for additional ride time to ensure you receive the full hour as promised. We value your feedback and truly hope you'll give us another chance to deliver the thrilling desert adventure you deserve.
Fun time!

Our guide Jimmy was amazing! He made sure that we had a awesome and safe time. He even took us to areas he thought would be pretty for pictures and was very knowledgeable. I would recommend him as a guide to anyone! Our driver Claude was so great too. He was funny to talk to on our way back :)

Carolynn_W, Jul 2023
It was one of the best experiences I have had & im over 50 years old. I would recommend it to anyone. It was amazing
We will come again
Isabella_w, Jul 2023
Translation: Thank you very much, Jimmy, for giving us this thrilling, exciting, and safe journey. This is an experience that is truly worth it, and I regret not coming here a few years earlier, haha. It was the happiest day for my husband and son. Once again, I want to express my gratitude to Jimmy for his patience in helping us out of the sand twice. His photography skills and explanations were meticulous. We will definitely look for him again when we come next time.
Awesome day
Stephanie_R, Jul 2023
Great trip with Emmett! Safe ride there and back with all the hospitality! Great guide in Josh with fun in the sun!
Not worth it
Okan_E, Jun 2023
We were assigned to 10 o’clock dune buggy ride but we didn’t start until after 11. Transportation from their office to desert was scary. The driver was going 65 on 35 mph speed limit. Then my buggy got stuck in sand and our Gide didn’t have a rope or chain to get it out. We had to push it… In summary, I know what we are NOT doing next time in Vegas.
Excellent

Had a terrific time with the dune buggy adventure with my son. The staff were very professional and friendly. Josh was a great tour guide. Highly recommended!!!
Looooooong Wait… Grrat Buggy and Guide
Ben_W, Apr 2023
The actual Dune Buggies were so much fun and our guide, Levi, was excellent. The only issue we had was the amount of time we had to wait around. Y’all booked a large group ahead of us and then picked up the noon group with the 1pm group. We were the first group to get picked up. We were a 1pm group. So, we ended up driving up and down the strip for an hour before even heading to the destination. By the time we’d arrived we were on the bus for about 90min. That would have been fine except for the fact that y’all then had all the noon groups too and we ended up waiting another 90min. Making a 5-hour say for a 30min ride is rather disappointing and really shouldn’t happen. Levi and the Buggy were amazing, but the rest of the trip was painstakingly long and tedious. Again, a 30-min ride shouldn’t be a 5-hour day.
Must do
Anurag_D, Apr 2023
The guide was awesome and so was everyone else from checkin to checkout. Only feedback I have is if there are people driving there, they could show up a little later as we showed up when asked but then had to wait for about 1.5 hrs before we got to the dunes.
So much fun!
Michelle_H, Apr 2023
Scared for my life b/c my husband thinks he's Dale Jr. But... it was a blast - my teen had the best time, so did my husband.
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines
StacyJordahl, Mar 2023
Great time. Levi was a fantastic guide! Chase was great. Really encouraged the group to test our individual limits.
Amazing
Candace_D, Mar 2023
The crazy fun chase was the best part of the day. Catching air over dunes was crazy fun. Our group of 6 talked about our good time for the rest of the day and night.

Valerie_m, Mar 2023

Be prepared for bumps!
Tom_B, Feb 2023
I and my friends had a great time. Time went by way to fast because we were having so much fun. Wish they took us out to the sand dunes with more sand driving. The rocky trails were nice but got tired of the rough trails, sand would of been much better.
Sunbuggy, their staff,...
Kimberly_M, Feb 2023
Sunbuggy, their staff, and Elijah made our Vegas trip unforgettable and absolutely amazing. We will do this again and will recommend to anyone looking for an adventurous time.
Buggy tour with Halo
Gilles_T, Dec 2022
Incredible experience. I was picked up from my hotel in time and dropped off right after I completed it. My guide, “Halo” went above and beyond to make sure I enjoyed my tour. If you book, ask for Halo and be careful out there because this isn’t an easy trail to navigate.
