Mark was the ultimate guide...fun and informative. My family of four enjoyed the trip tremendously. Bring bandanas and be prepared for mud as well. The buggies are fast, fun and challenging to drive over the various terrain. Small groups. We had 3 buggies on our half day trip.
Enjoy! Best by far.
This tour was one of the best I have been on. Our tour guide from Canada was excellent! He knew so much about the way of living and was so informative. It is great to get a guide that not only loves what they do but also knows what they are doing. He made us feel very safe and comfortable. Can't wait to do it again. Beautiful views, and you really get a taste of the what the country is actually like outside of the resort.
This tour was amazing!! You got to see and experience the culture in the countryside by going to the market and having Dominican coffee and chocolate. Continued on the tour through an old limestone quarry on through the small towns around the area, stopping for a small snack again in one of the local towns of meat and cheese. Our tour ended at Macao Beach where the scenery was amazing. I highly recommend this company. They do not instruct you how to drive a stick at all so if you don't know how you better find something else. And they do expect you to follow the instructions given, if not you might get a little stern talking to. Our English speaking guide who I've totally blanked on his name was awesome!! Very knowledgeable. Overall a ton of fun and I would definitely do it again!
The local tour operator was excellent. The guide made the difference. We saw many interesting and beautiful places. The guide explained the places. We stopped at 3-4 different locations on the 1/2 day excursion. The guide is in the attached picture.
Great people! The tour is small and you really get to learn about the DR. Be prepared to get dirty! So much fun!!
This was the best! Mark Jarand, our guide, was a delight. He was extremely knowledgeable about Punta Cana and made sure we had the best time! We were able to see the real island and we could experience it first hand. We had so much fun and got very muddy! I highly recommend this tour...so much better than the other hotel tours our friends took. TIP: Bring hard, wrapped candy for the children, don't wear anything you don't want to get really dirty and just have fun. Worth every penny and more!
I'm usually not one to write a review, but this trip was amazing! Would highly recommend to anyone that knows how to drive a manual, likes to have fun and wants to see the countryside of the Dominican Republic!!
This was a great experience! Montreal Mark was our guide and gave great explanations to all of our questions and fantastic directions throughout the DR countryside. Our group of 8 ages 7-44 were all completely satisfied! You WILL get dirty with clay mud, so wear clothes you're not too traumatized if stained. Bring sunscreen and a smile. They provide everything else! Our favorite was the local home and the beach. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
This was a AWESOME time! The men running it are great at their job. There is a lot of beautiful land to see on this island. Highly recommend this island and this excursion.
this was a great tour the people running it were great highly recommend

Fantastic buggy adventure, really enjoyed it. You go very fast, dirty, fun fun fun. Thoroughly recommend. Don't let the scary German owner irritate you, I think he is just trying to get everybody to look after his buggies and treat them with respect - comes across a bit too overtop at times. The stops are great too, not the usual stops where you are pushed to buy a load of tat, interesting and informative ones. A brilliant trip - go for it, you won't regret it.
Really enjoyed the Dune Buggy Ride. Tour Guide was great...saw lots of back roads of the DR, a beautiful beach, snacked in town...places we would not have seen without the guide. The Dune Buggy riding itself...too much fun. Highly recommend.
This is the first time I ever felt obligated to take the time and write a review. This was the BEST adventure excursion I ever had. Certainly worth every penny and this will be the best memory of your vacation! Charlie was fantastic and passionate about safety, having fun and his buggies. Magic7

this trip was great! Charlie was an excellent guide and I loved seeing how people in Punta Cana live.
Although the weather was very wet, unusual for whole day in the Dominican Republic, this did not spoil the experience. Charlie is passionate about his buggies and the island and safety is paramount. This did not detract from the overall experience, just offered more reassurance that we would be safe. We had a fantastic day and had more fun than others we spoke to who had been on the average buggy days that just used quads instead of buggies like Charlie's. We saw and learnt things we are sure we would never of experienced on a run of the mill tour. Would recommend the DVDs photos of your trip that give you action shots that keep the memories on disc for a long time. Well worth the money. Highly recommended.

BIG FUN !!!
If it had rained before make sure that you cover up, because you will be driving through ALL of the mud holes.
What a great, real life experience. Charlie was great and we would do this again in a second. Safe, affordable and as advertised. Do this trip! We did it October 2015.

This excursion by far was the best one we took in Punta Cana. Charlie was an awesome guide. We got to see the real Dominican off the resort. The Playa de Maceo beach was unbelievable beautiful. We will definitely be back. Next time we will book a 2 or 6 day excursion with Charlie!!
This was an outstanding excursion. Charlie was the best. A must do tour.
Excellent trip with Charlie leading us! We got lucky and it rained the night before we went, so plenty of water splashed up on us and we threw away our shirts after the adventure. It's worth every bit of it.
I highly recommend this tour compared to any other local buggies tours. With these you can actually drive fast and not feel like you are part of a convoy our group was only 4 buggies. The tour of the local Punta Cana was great and the whole experience was wonderful.
One of the highlights of my trip to DR! The tour offers something completely different and has such a nice personal touch to it. Charlie was great and his knowledge of the area was impressive. Don't wear nice clothes and make sure you can drive stick! All in all really great fun.
The dune buggy tour was absolutely amazing! We learned things about the Dominican that we never knew and we got to tour a lot of different areas! Would definitely recommend doing this if you plan on visiting the Dominican Republic!! Had a blast!!!
This was a fun and educational trip. We saw the real DR not just the tourist spots. The folks running the tour are very nice and know where they are going. I would recommend this to anyone.
