A little spendy but if you can drive a go-cart you will enjoy this.A couple of hrs of dirty trail & sand (with a water creek too) fun.A guide in 4-wheeler leads the way so take a friend for something different in the dessert.

I can't really rate any which way because we never took the Desert Dog Hummer Adventure we booked. My husband made a reservation for the following day to meet with a guide at 1:00 pm. We show up at 12:30 because my husband is a fanatic about being early. So, we were cool with waiting until 1:00, then 1:15, and... More

My son and I had an amazing time riding in the desert. Ryan our guide was a great guide! i would highly recommend doing this if you can while in the Phoenix area. If you can wear outdoor clothes and plan on getting dirty then be sure to have a change of clothes in your car for when you get... More

As part of a corporate outing, we went with a group of 30 on the Half Day Hummer Tour. Each hummer held about 8 people. From the reviews it sounds like the two person dune buggy is a more worthwhile adventure. From our larger vehicle, the scenery was not all that interesting, and our guide only offered commentary for about... More

My sons, nephew and I had a great time on the 2 hour dune buggy trip. We switched drivers at the break hence all four of us got a chance to drive and film (2 cars rented). The staff was friendly & knowledgable of the history of the surrounding desert. The dune buggies were high quality and very user friendly.... More

In all honesty, Kevin our guide made this trip one of the most memorable trips ever. He absolutely had so much amazing information on the animals and plants. We had such an amazing time. At one point we were all screaming and laughing at the same time. I would highly recommend this over any out door adventure.

We did fairly extensive research since this was the most highly anticipated activity of our vacation. If was tough to find the combo we wanted--a 4-seater option we could drive ourselves that would also allow us to bring two kids ages nine and five along for the ride. Desert Dog not only met all these criteria, they were friendly about... More

Great views and a little adrenaline rush make for a fun experience. Some great off the path views of fun trails. Nothing too dangerous but definitely not boring

We had the 2 person dune buggy. This was definitely a highlight of our trip. The trails were rough, bumpy, dirty and wet IT WAS AWESOME! ! The views were breathtaking. The only way to experience the desert. Very nice they supplied us with water bottles. There was an issue with someone in our group and a small bump up.... More
