Upon arrival at the Valley of Fire, meet your local guide and receive a safety briefing and orientation. The buggies are custom-built to handle the rugged Nevada terrain and are equipped with seatbelts and roll cages. Single buggies are not offered; if you wish to have your own buggy, you must purchase two seats. 

Don your helmet and safety goggles, then set off over the bright red sand. Star Trek fans may recognize the landscape as a backdrop from some of the early Star Trek episodes. Marvel at the otherworldly rock formations and colors that have made this one of the top off-road riding areas in the United States. Keep an eye out for local wildlife like the impressive bighorn sheep.

After exploring the Valley of Fire, enjoy the ride back to your Las Vegas hotel for drop-off.

I loved the experience! I’m coming back for sure!
Marvel_J, Mar 2023
We drove so far and I enjoyed the ride! Seeing the Petroglyphs, rock climbing, taking amazing pictures, meeting new people! It was dope!
Waste of money
George_V, Oct 2022
We were promised a six hour tour. We got one hour. We had to change dune buggies three different times because of mechanical failures. The scenery was not what we paid for. We paid for Valley of fire and they moved us to some dirty sand dunes outside of Las Vegas speedway. If you read the reviews, there are many people who say this company is not reputable. This is an absolute truth.
Fun but be aware, bait and switch
Michael_K, May 2022
Guide was amazing but chose this company for the buggy exp and when got in the desert was told they don’t work in the terrain and ended up on a gator. Not the exp we had purchased.
Tarheels Family in the Desert
Arthur_H, Aug 2021
The Tarheels Family(Hopper Family)conquered the Valley of fire on August 12, 2021 , with the help of Our tourists Jordan & Flip. They made sure safety was a priority & gave detail information & carefully made sure the equipment was operating properly before we endure the 3.5 hours of the rough terrain. Eat a small breakfast (fruits, grits, oatmeal) drink plenty of water. Eating a meal after the 3.5 joy ride is for the best interest of the customer. This is definitely a must do while on vacation, drink plenty of water & ask for “Jordan & Flip” to be your tour guide/ instructors. The Valley of Death will end up being the Valley of Joy for your benefit. Have fun & let’s ride.
Jeannette_L, Aug 2021
If you want to go into the desert they are the best. Our tour guides Flipp and Irokk they are funny, courteous, and experience guys. The shuttle driver that pick us up at the hotel Black Mike hilarious 🤣 best wake up call! What a day! A most do activity in Vegas! Don't go anywhere else, SunBuggy are the best!
Gregory_B, Jun 2021
Ran hours late, changed our vehicle choice without notifying us. then sent us out with a group of 11 who had spoken to “Eric” at the tour company for permission to shoot a rap music video while on our “tour”. The language used in conversation was beyond foul and the music and behavior was full of vulgarity. Pure filth. They should have been REQUIRED to take a PRIVATE TOUR, because what went on was not for public consumption. We did not get to enjoy any of the stops because the group was “filming”. The guides that were present supported our request for remedy, yet the company stood by their “NO refunds, No matter what” policy. So we paid nearly $900 for nothing. Felt robbed of our last day of vacation. We should have been notified of the other groups request and given the option to change our itinerary or reschedule. The offer to repeat the tour was of no value because it was our last day and have no plans to return to Vegas. Unfair and unprofessional.
Great Experence!

I booked this adventure as part of a birthday gift for my hubby. One of his bucket list items was to ride a dune buggy through the dessert! It took an hour to get to the Valley of Fire from the office. Our guide was Marquis. He made sure we were all safe and stayed on the trail the entire time. We spent at least 3 hours at the desert. We got in more than enough time on the buggy's! The first part of the terrain was rough and rocky, the second part was sandy. The sights along the way were always changing and beautiful!! I didn't expect that! Even though it was a hot day, there was a nice breeze, while riding in the buggy. Wear sun protection or UV protection clothing. You will get dusty. They provided subs and drinks. There was also bathrooms in the park to use. Overall, it was a great experience.
Awesome Dune Buggy Trip!
Rodney_T, Apr 2019
We looked at several tour companies before deciding on this one based on reviews. Martin picked us up at the resort on time. We traveled to the office for a safety briefing and to pick up helmets. Martin then drove us to meet Austin who was on site with the buggy. Austin reviewed safety again and then we were off to cruise dunes, rocky creek beds, climb rocks, and then have lunch next to petroglyphs! We've been to Vegas a lot but this was the best trip ever because of Sunbuggy and our awesome guides Austin and Martin. Highly recommend you ask for them!

Corlia_M, Jun 2018
If I could add a star or 3 I would!! What an amazing trip. Firstly, I have to apologise to the service provider...I decided tonight it is a good time to say thanks to all the Viator service providers who made our trips so much fun. I am nearly 2 years late....but I have to mention that visiting Las Vegas was not my idea of how I want to spend a family vacation....shows and 'the strip'....but I will never think of Las Vegas as those things again. We met the most amazing people on this 'driving buggies in the desert', a hike, kayaking ... we were picked up at our hotel...not knowing what to expect, being in the middle of so much neon signs as we have not seen in our lives!... so we got all the safety gear, were briefed and off we went...the two of us and our 6 children...we were 4 people to a buggy and each got a chance to drive. We stopped at points to change drivers and had so much fun climbing boulders, checking out rock paintings, just being in this amazing space with clear, clear blue sky. One of my favourite pictures of our children on a big boulder, each doing his/her own thing, with the bluest of skies behind them! I must say the only negative part of this trip was that it had to actually end! ....but ...the trip did not end there - we had a wonderful lunch of sandwiches with everything you would like on a sandwich at a little diner along the way back! ...maybe 'just another day' for these guys, but to us it was a family bonding experience which we all enjoyed and will remember forever - thanks you guys! It was awesome. If you like nature, fun and a 'new landscape, do this trip, there is nothing hard or even remotely dangerous about the trip - just a lot of fun and 'little moments' we thoroughly enjoyed it! and will definitely recommend i to anybody who wants to experience the real Las Vegas out there'!

Absolutely fantastic!!!! VERY bumpy, VERY disty but 100 worth it!! Amazing day out, would definitely recommend this tour. We went in November so the temperature was just right. We had two tour guides who were great. We even had a subway lunch thrown in too!

Frank B, Dec 2017
This was without a doubt the best tour my son and I have ever taken. The guys and gals leading this trip were by far the best group ever to make sure you have a safe fun day but really made it a lot more than that. From Carmen to Robbins and Stephanie, They did a great job making sure we had the best day ever. My son enjoyed this day and has not finished talking about since. Carmen and Robbins really went out of their way to make sure we had the most fun possible. I highly recommend this trip.

James C, Sep 2017
Valley of Fire. We had a great time! Robbins was our guide. He was fantastic! He took great care of us - plenty of water and Gatorade, ensured we had opportunity to get snacks prior to starting. We found a broken glass bottle at one of our stops and he picked up all the pieces to be properly disposed of. We got stuck on top of a sand dune a couple of times and he was right there to help us. I would request Robbins for any future trips to Vegas dune Buggy trips

Constance W, Jun 2013
Dune buggy ride was a lot of fun and our guides were terrific. We got to see so much of the Valley of Fire. We took plenty of water breaks. The only negative was the bus ride to and from the Valley of Fire. The a/c didn't work and it was miserable on the bus. Connie from Tennessee
Great way to see the Valley of Fire...

World Traveler, Apr 2013
This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. I had been wanting to visit the Valley of Fire for sometime now and this was definitely the way to see it! Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable not only about the buggies but the park as well. He brought us to the best view points possible and to the sand dunes so we could ride around on our own. Don't forget to wear sunscreen and keep hydrated!
