Worst experience ever— ruined what should have been fun group experience. They rented us a defective dune buggy that got stuck in the dunes 15 minutes after starting. Despite several calls with the staff assuring us we would have someone help us in 5-10 minutes,...More

They tell you to get there an hour early. We did and watched a ridiculous informational video that was about five minutes long and a bit pointless. It was repeated information that was not useful. Useful information would’ve been how to avoid getting stuck in...More
