What You Can Expect

Nellis Dune Buggy Tour

Nellis Dune Buggy Tour

On your dune buggy visit to the Nellis Dunes you will stop at Look Out Dune and Rattle Snake Cliffs. You'll be able to see the Las Vegas Strip clearly, as well as Lake Mead off in the distance. If you wish, your guide will take you to the Sony Motorstorm course and guide you through a lap.

If you have a nice camera don't bring it! A disposable camera is a much better idea!

All buggies are custom built for the rugged Nevada terrain, and come equipped with roll cages, seatbelts, helmets and goggles for your safety. The buggies are similar to your regular car - with a steering wheel, brake pedal, and gas pedal. It's your responsibility to operate the vehicle safely.

Please Note: If you book a 2-seater buggy with an odd number of passengers you'll receive a 1-seat buggy for the additional passenger. The price displayed is a per person rate. Your total tour duration includes hotel pickup and drop-off. Your total ride time is approximately 30-minutes. You will not be able to switch drivers during this tour. If each passenger wishes to drive, you must book two (2) buggies.

Exactly as advertised, great fun and a really good guide

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

This was the second time my brothers and I took this tour and it was even better than the first! We had a great time and our guide was great. Knowing we had done it before, he ask that "since this is a chase" would you like me to just let 'er rip? We of course agreed! Aside from a mechanical problem on one buggy near the end of the run (he, they're dune buggies and get abuse) we had an amazing run and will do it again next year. Gotta admit, though, the body does take a beating!!! Worth every penny!!!!!

The buggies were fun! We were happy at first, but once we got on the track, my mom was screaming like a little girl! We went on 2 times and it was a lot of fun!

The Nellis Dune Buggy ride was a great way to do something special with my son. It was a blast! The tour guides were so extremely helpful, fun, and very nice. I would recommend bringing a pair of gloves if you are driving, as for my hands got some blister’s from trying to handle the wheel, but well worth it. This is definitely an exciting memory that we will never forget!!

This is definitely an experience to take when visiting Las Vegas. The dunes were awesome and the buggies well equipped to handle that rough and rugged terrain. So much fun!!
