According to their website you get a sandboarding experience incl video and snacks. Sandboarding was included, the snacks and video not.. That wasn't the worst our guide did not bring the right boots the first time, so the driver had to go back to the workshop.. Delay of 2.5 hours!! And they also forgot to take the wax out of the car, so the others couldn't go sandboarding in the meantime as well.. True waste of our time, sandboarding in the end is a great experience but the service of Ultimate Sandboarding was very bad. In order to make up for the delay he promised a suprise visit to the swakop township and ordered some snacks for our group which in the end we were requested to pay ourselves and finally he dropped us at the taxi stand..

Hello Shirley,
We are very sorry about your sandboarding experience.
But I have to admit that your review is about an other company and not Alter Action. As you said you talk about ultimate. We (Alter Action Sandboarding) do offer a video and a light lunch after the trip as we describe on our website and we do not use taxis for the transport but have our own vehicles to drive the clients to the dune.
Maybe you can try the sandboarding the next time with us and we will do our best to give you a great experience!

My family went tobogganing with Alter Action. Much more thrilling than the stand up boarding and very fast! My daughter reached 64kph and we all had a blast.
Very professional and friendly outfit. Remember to keep your mouth shut!

This was excellent fun. Our party ranged from 8 to 69 years and we all enjoyed it tremendously. I loved the way they checked your speed.
