This is the highlight of my tour in Ilocos. It's like being in the middle east! We were charged 2500 per 4x4 and it was worth it. Much like riding a roller coaster on big wheels and we rode at the back, standing up for maximum thrill. There were high sand dunes and the driver will go up then speed... More

The place isn't that far. For a 4x4 jeep, it would fit one in the front beside the driver, and probably around 4 to 5 persons at the back standing and holding on to the rail. The trip would have been more fun if it were longer and had more downhill slopes.\ After the jeep ride, the package also includes... More

Highlight of our trip! Family enjoyed this experience.... peeps operating those 4x4's knew what had to be done to make their guests ecstatically happy! Shouting, shrieking and laughing echoing along the vast acres of endless SAAAAAAAND.... our family of four created so much noise during the uphill and downhill drive.... It'll be hard to match this activity.... Great job and... More

Definitely a MUST when you go to Ilocos Norte. It's a one of a kind adventure that will make your adrenaline spike up. The place is a few mins drive from the City's capital... U can always ask for directions from everyone. We were accommodated by the the group of Randolph, they are the best 4x4 drivers for me so... More

This is the most enjoyable part of our Ilocandia tour! The SAND DUNES in Laoag! For PHP2,500, my family of four were able to enjoy the sand dunes for one (1) hour. That's the regular fare for four however if you are only two or three just negotiate and asked for a discount so you could avail their 4x4 ride... More

It was soooo fun...Haggling is very essential if you only travel by two. Good thing I was kinda good at it. We were given a chance to do the 4x4 with a sand boarding for just P1.6. It was arrange for just 30 mins but it turned out to be about an hour. It was a great and unforgettable experience.

It's more like you're in a dessert kinda feeling. So we rent a 4x4 jeep just to experience the sandunes has to offer!. At first the ride was smooth and no sign of excitement, but wait until you will be on the peak of the sand, adrenaline rush is all over me it feels like riding on a roller coaster... More

One of the best memories of our Ilocos trip is the 4x4 adventure ride. Our group, ages ranging from 14-70 enjoyed this trip! It was such fun and highly recommended. There were 7 of us and the driver agreed to accommodate us for a fee of P3,000. (Standard rate is P2,500 for a group of 6). We enjoyed the "roller-coaster"... More
