Dune Buggy Rooks Get Experienced!!!
John_S, Feb 2024
The most memorable part of our experience was the uniqueness of driving small dune buggies in a safe way for inexperienced drivers. That and enjoying the beautiful Tonto National Forest area!

My 15yo son and I spent four adventure-filled days in Scottsdale/Pheonix in February 2020 and this was our favorite activity! We had two guides-one that drove in the front and the back to ensure our safety. It was a very rugged trail and we got super wet and muddy driving through many creek beds which was a blast! At the halfway point we got out to take in the beautiful forest views and the guides were very knowledgable about the vegetation, animal life etc. They even took us back on a different trail because we were so awe-struck by the Suguaro cacti that they wanted to show us the biggest ones in the forest. Highly recommend! Well worth the money.
