My experience was similar to the others. Loved the buggies, driving, the places visited, etc. But Charlie is much more interested in his buggies than the safety of his customers. He hounded us about what gear we were in, how we shifted, how we got in and out of the vehicles and ho hard we pressed the pedals and applied... More

My husband and I booked a half-day tour and had one other couple do this tour with us. Charlie was our guide and our pick up from the hotel was around 11:45 and we were brought back around 5:00. The tour was extensive, informative, and well-organized. We learned a lot about REAL life in the Dominican Republic and enjoyed seeing... More

Tour guide/camera guy/owner is the worst ever. Yells and screams and berates you like a child the entire time. You pay to tour and all he does is yell about how much the parts cost to fix a dune buggy. Buggies are Germany old ancient bugs. Disaster. Don't do it. Rude as all hell, and I never write bad reviews.... More

If you want to train for the German dune buggy Olympic team and be berated like a child, this tour is for you. If you want to spend a day of your vacation focusing on the sightseeing and having fun all while being respected like an adult, look elsewhere. (Other tours are less expensive too!) This tour was great except... More

Hi people, I went to Punta Cana in March 2015 and booked an excursion for half day buggy. I booked it with Angela, who after many back and forth emails finally got me booked in. On the day, the person running the excursion was Charlie, a rude, weird and awful character. Because of this idiot it will ruin your excursion.... More

This was a great way to see the local landscape and we had some fun getting muddy too! My dad had some problems with his buggy but the guys were good about replacing it. Remember to bring a bandana with you to keep the mud off your face. We bought ours there and was very necessary!

We were a group of 4 buggys (16 people) and we had a fun day. Charlie is pretty strict about following him "exactly" which is sometimes hard to do when the driver wants to also look around. I understand it as this is his living and livelihood but it seems a little over the top. Maybe we just had one... More
