After exploring the rugged terrain of the Nevada desert, enjoy the ride back to your Las Vegas hotel for drop-off.

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, 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.
The best fun away from the strip
Justin_H, Dec 2022
Awesome! The best fun you can have away from the strip. Fast, fun, my 4th time with sun buggy and the reaction from my group always the same amazing awesome fun, let’s do it again. Our guide driver Eliza , the best !!
Cool Experience!
Jennifer_T, Dec 2022
Super cool experience! Would definitely recommend this if you like off roading. The crew were all very nice and wanted to ensure we had a good time.
Amazing, super safe and fun
Manuel_G, Nov 2022
Amazing trip!!! Highly recommended and super safe!!! Ask for Demo as a tour guide, super patient and great with kids!!!
Worth while doing it once… but wouldn’t repeat it
Howard_L, Nov 2022
The time in the desert in the dune buggy was awesome and a lot of fun. Only draw back was the day was about 3.5 hrs long and we only had 30 minutes of actual buggy time. So spending 3hrs to ride for only 30 minutes isn’t really worth doing it more than once. The buggy time should be min 60-90 minutes. Also the price was a lot over $400 / person for a 30 min buggy ride.
Fun in the desert!
Justin_D, Nov 2022
Great time with a great bunch of people felt safe the whole time. The dune buggies were fun and fast. Didn't matter your driving skill. They worked with you
Greatest part of our trip!
Debora_K, Nov 2022

Amazing ride, way more intense then I thought! Great time! Dom was a great guide he really pushed the limits and made it an experience of a lifetime
Rachel_A, Aug 2022
This was a great experience, Michael picked us up from our hotel and was FANTASTIC! Then it was an easy check in with a bus ride with dan the man. The actually experience was a little short but still such a blast. Elijah was a great tour guide!! Only wish was that it was a little longer because it was so fun!
Dao_X, Aug 2022
It is a great experience if you've yet to drive any offroad vehicle. It's not at all challenging or fun it you've experienced offroad driving. I could've fallen asleep if I could.
Very good but short
yannick_q, Aug 2022

Love the dune buggies but...
Chad_F, Jul 2022
Love the dune buggies but the experience was 1.5 hours not 3.5 as advertised. Also the ride itself seemed less than 30 minutes and the instructor was not particularly interested.
