Myself, my wife, daughter and future son-in-law really didn't know what to expect but this turned out to be excellent. The driver made it fun while talking about facts and history of the dunes and surrounding area. I would recommend this to anyone that is visiting the Saugatuck area. Oh and the views are great too.

This is a unique, Michigan owned and run business that gets you up and out in the dunes. Unrivaled views and fun (can be exhilirating ride) time in open jeep-type vehicles. You can get out and stretch and take pictures at the "top." Can be crowded on peak weekends in the summer. Still a great time and we take visiting... More

I went with a group to this event and the drive of the dune buggy was funny, informative, and educational. Ride is about 45 min. Cost was around 20.00 per person. It was a thrill you won't forget. I don't want to tell too much....but totally worth it!

Fun! Fun! Fun! We went on a guided tour in a dune buggy. I didn't know Michigan had so much sand! The scenery is beautiful!

We stopped here on our way to South Haven first thing in the morning. Best idea and highlight of our trip. The ride lasts about 45 minutes. Our driver was Steve and was very funny and knowledgeable. We had plenty of stops for pictures. The ride is a lot of fun but also surprisingly educational. We would highly recommend it... More

We had fun on the dune ride, the driver took us through a few dunes and some wooded area, there was one stop on top of a sand dune, and you could look out over Lake Michigan.

My husband and I took this ride and were so surprised at how much we enjoyed it. It turned out to be one of the favorite things we did in Saugatuck. Our guide made it fun and exciting, as well as educational. It was about a 45 minute ride and worth every dime.

The dune ride was fun. Our driver, Ian, was very knowledgeable about the dunes and gave bunches of history and facts about the area (which I appreciated as a teacher). He also threw some cheap humor in for free. We spent about 15 minutes at the top of the dunes walking around and taking pictures of the dunes. The sand... More

I was a bit nervous before we went because I'm not a huge dare devil, but the ride was just enough thrill for me (really wasn't bad at all). Our tour guide, Joey, was very nice and informative. He brought us to the top of some of the dunes, showing us picturesque views of the Lake. It's $19 per adult,... More
