“What an unforgettable experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our family took 3 Prado land cruisers on this tour. Our tour guide Bruce was great, took us on off road tracks to discover hidden gems and to the sand dunes which are off limits to the public. A fantastic family experience- well worth your money! Bruce also had some sand boards in his 4 wd which he let us slide down the massive sand dunes- this is one experience you and your family will not regret!

“Absolutely amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Amazing guide (Bruce) - knowledgeable, amusing and very professional. We were able to adjust the tour for our needs (2 y/o twins), got plenty of explanations along the route and great driving guidance.
This great experience is totally worth the money.

“Wow...What an experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We were a group of 3 friends who wanted to have some off road experience in the sand dunes. One of us had bought the FJ in hope that one day he can off road.After searching the internet for options we finally decided on Bruce and his Tag Along tour.
Initially we were apprehensive but the amount of experience and stories he shared were amazing.His knowledge of the local flora and fauna is great.
With no experience in driving off road, Bruce explained about the 4WD, and the styles of driving. The best experience was driving off the edge in to the steep side of the sanddune.
Bruce is no time watcher...he is truly passionate about 4WD and an excellent teacher. We definitely recommend this experience to anyone with a 4WD...and if you do not have one..you can ride along with Bruce in his LandCruiser.

“A different tour with good guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

A great family experience in a different place and views.
A bit of bush, a bit of beach, finishing with a funny sandboard for everyone, (no matter the age!)
Our guide (Bruce) was very friendly and amused. Lots of fun guaranteed!
He is a nature lover and protector... that's the way to preserve this beautiful place!

It isn't a cheap tour but if we consider the expenses with the car and compare to other options we found, it is reasonable!

I recommend this to those who are looking for some fun in the nature but not wiling to spend too much and still want o enjoy with a local experienced guide!
