Everything you could ask for in an excursion
John_N, Jun 2023
Derly was a fantastic guide. This trip had everything you could ask for packed into one: The dune buggies, a trip to a nearby beach, and finishing off with a trip to a beautiful cenote in a cave was my favorite portion. Thanks!!

It was a good time
Alexandra_R, May 2023
Tips: Take cash when buying stuff at the coffee souvenirs stop, They overcharged me on my card. The experience should be longer, wish we were at Macao Beach for more time. The host DIRLY was nice. But he took a long time talking before our excursion.
Safe and good trip
Brenda_F, May 2023
David was great. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. He told us what to expect. There was a lot of people trying to sell you things but he warned us. He was fun. I wish we had more time to open up the buggies. We had to stay in line and did not go fast. It was very safe. I didn't get the buggy experience, meaning we had to drive slow. I know that is safe but I thought we would have been able to have more fun on them. But I loved all the stops. The cave was great. The beach was beautiful. We had great weather. Still very much worth it. I don't hold it against them that they wanted us to stay safe. The tour guide and the staff that rode with us was amazing. And the camera man was so funny and fun. "Got it"
Carmine_P, May 2023
Our guide was the best. Very cool guy! Made the trip great! He made sure our group was well taken care of
Awesome adventure. Thanks Derly and Esteban!
Mikayla_C, May 2023
Awesome trip HIGHLY recommend. Esteban the photographer and Derly the tour guide were both excellent. Everything exceeding expectations. Only downside was the solicitors at the water cave.
Fun buggy ride excursion
Jessica_D, May 2023
We had a blast. I would highly recommend . Our guide Jay and our photographer " Got it" made the experience perfect. Thank you.
Great buggy experience
Jonathan_C, Apr 2023
David, our tour guide was great and he clearly cares about giving the best experience possible, even advising on what to watch out for to avoid getting scammed by locals. We ended up buying some local cocoa powder and green tea after the tasting which was included on the 2nd stop - you could also try coffee and cigars but that's not our thing so we passed on these. We rode the premium buggy (wasn't an option on Viator but was given an unexpectes free upgrade!) which was great. We've driven ATVs before and much prefer the buggy, especially as you can switch drivers between stops for free (can't switch on the ATVs).

It was fun, if you’re thinking about it do it !!!
Gracia_W, Apr 2023
We had a great time! Our tour guide J was very knowledgeable and made sure we were safe. Things to bring(ski mask/bandana, sunglasses/goggles. Bring snacks and water to keep yourself hydrated and bring sunscreen!!

Robert_F, Apr 2023
Staff was great, experience was great. Equipment was lacking. No shade on top of buggy, steering was ready to break, a lot of play in steering making it hard to handle.Steering joint was visually worn out. I would say safety concern..

Amazing adventure
Erik_E, Apr 2023
We had an amazing time riding the buggy, seeing and learning about all the spots we stopped by. Our tour guide Derly was great, can’t saying enough about him, he is the man. We would definitely go back and do again.
Great tour but old dune buggies
stephanie_b, Apr 2023
This was the best tour! The dune buggies are old and the seat belts didn’t work in several buggies. They are definitely in need of an upgrade.
Want money back! Total SCAM
Jennifer_F, Apr 2023
AWFUL! Absolutely awful. So disorganized. Vehicles broke down several times, felt trapped. We drove threw cow crap and garbage. The cave is pre made. Beach canx due to holiday week. Biggest waste of money. AWFUL. No seatbelts, no helmets and no goggles False advertising. . Total scam. Want money back!!!!!

Bumpy Ride!
Brandi_T, Apr 2023
Easy transportation pickup/drop off. Tour guides were very attentive with everyone in the event ensuring everyone’s safety with equipment and around locals. Very fun trail ride through the community. Destinations were great choices for the timed event.
Amazing start to vacation
Hector_M, Apr 2023
We had an amazing trip. The buggy place does have food/ a grill for optional purchase .Chicken for kids etc . The view was beautiful and the tour guide Jay were so cool. To me the photographer Esteban made our trip tho . I didn’t want to take pictures and pay for them but the way he was so nice to my daughter in helping her down the cave etc . Made me want to support him and in the meanwhile get pictures of my family for a great price .. I highly recommend. A must do in DR
Great experience
Nicholette_B, Mar 2023
Staff was on it; they kept the group together and led the tour efficiently. We had 3 stops along the way that were fun. Only negative was we sat around for an hour from the time the transfer dropped us off and to when we actually got on the buggy. Tour was only 3.5 hours, not 4. Still Highly recommend this trip
Very unorganized ...

Horrible. Don’t do it.
Alan_F, Mar 2023
This was one of the worst things I’ve done. First off all these five star reviews are from them pressuring you at the end to do so. This tour is a tourist trap. It’s great of you want to spend the day being harassed by people trying to buy thing. The first stop is a side of the road sales pitch for coffee and other random stuff. The beach is pretty but looks like our hotel beach and you’re literally harassed by 30 venders attacking you like animals. The last stop is a tiny cave in a area that is borderline scary and doesn’t feel safe. Again non stop street vendors. Even kids trying to shake you done. Let’s not forget the buggy themselves. Atleast one hour to wait to leave and so many of the buggy’s broke down including our. It was a terrible. Just don’t do it
