The Dune Rides were so much fun! Our driver John kept us laughing, but shared all sorts of natural history and ecological development of the dunes around us. Wouldn't have missed this for the world.

We had a blast on the dune ride. The tour guide was fun and provided informative historical facts regarding the dunes and surrounding area. The Dune Rides were reasonably priced and operated right on time.

I wasn't sure this would be "worth it" but it SO TOTALLY WAS. We had a blast. My 4 and 6 year olds loved every minute of it. The scenery is amazing and the little history lesson is terrific as well. Can't say enough good things about this.

Took the ride on a cloudy, cool Friday morning. Had a ball and was pleased with our driver Joey. He had a great sense of humor and he spent time telling us about the history of the area and how the dunes were formed, and what is happening with them now. Our only wish was that the ride were longer... More

We were not sure if we were going to get to go out because of the weather. But we did and we were so happy we did!!! Ian was a wonderful and funny driver! We learned a lot about the dunes and saw beautiful scenery along the way. We sat in the back and loved the ride on the hills.... More

Our driver was Scott and he did a terrific job with the humor and history throughout our dune ride. I agree with everyone else who has reviewed this - if you're in the area and you've never been on a dune ride, you have to try it! $19 per person for 40 min of beautiful scenery, wind in your hair,...
