It was a fun 40 minute ride through the grass dunes and woods. The driver Joey was great at engaging us and telling the history of the area. Not as good as the white dunes in Ludington but worth it if you're around!

We really enjoyed the ride and the history lesson of the dunes by the driver. Really easy to get to off the highway. We had a lot of fun.

It was a great ride, but my expectations were so high based on previous reviews, that I expected the jeep to literally fly over the dunes like a magic carpet. That being said, our driver, Scott, has completed over 12,000 trips through the dunes and is still able to make it interesting. Wow. Nice guy. Interesting machines. Tires are shaved... More

The driver give you a little history between speeding along the dunes. It was fun and entertaining. Great photo ops and cool ride through the forest too.

My family of 5 LOVED the dune ride! Our guide, Joel, was funny and informative and really made the experience super fun! The views are spectacular and we all really enjoyed ourselves. The kids are already asking if we can go back again!

45 minute high speed, relatively speaking, ride up and down dunes on a private parcel of land overlooking Lake Michigan. The guide kept things light with plenty of dry humor and information about the area. A good way to spend some time if you're in the Saugatuck area and want something a bit more exciting than walking through downtown.

Wasn't sure what to expect when we reserved our ride, but our group of 7 (adults and kids of varying ages) really had fun. From the vehicles themselves to the charming guide, a thoroughly enjoyable adventure. Would certainly recommend it if you are visiting Naugatuck.

The Dune ride was extremely fun for the whole family. Scott, our driver and guide, was extremely informative and funny. The pictures from the top of the dunes are amazing. This is a must-do activity if you are passing through the area.

This was a great time for the adults and the kids in our group, and was a highlight of our vacation. Our driver, Jeff, was great. He was very knowledgeable and informative as well as hilarious. We highly recommend the Saugatuck Dune Rides!
