If you are looking for an exclusive tour where you aren't herd like cattle, this is the tour you're looking for! We were one of only two buggies on the tour and had a total blast! There is a substantial amount of driving and even more mud! Be prepared with old clothes and

Plan on taking bad clothes because they will likely be ruined. The buggy’s are pretty haggard but still fun, you get to see some off the beaten track stuff which is neat. Be prepared, every stop people are very pushy to sell you stuff.

Hola 220artj, We at Xtreme Buggy have original Dune Buggy's. VW engine, air-cooled, they all drive stick shift 4 speed. Our groups are 3-5 Buggy's. Not once do we stop so someone can buy something ( or sellers can hassle you) we do go off the beaten path and only visit original Local colmados ( there is nothing to buy, unless you need half a cucumber, or onions) you went with someone else, check out our tours, so you can book the "real thing" once we are all back to normal again... greetings from Punta Cana, angela

Read the reviews of other excursions saying there were too many people and when we found one that advertised actual manual buggies and small groups we were all in. It turned out to be better than we could have imagined! Saw rural DR that you can’t get on “big group excursions”
