This is a really good time, even with young kids. They take you in a buggy up and down dunes and into secluded wooded areas. The guides I’ve had have been great, funny and laid back and give you an interesting history about the dunes...More

Highly recommend. As someone else said, it was the highlight and unexpected fun ride of our vacation. Our 5 yr. old loved it. Just make sure you have sunglasses (and anything else you might need) as you will get sand on your face...

The dune rides is a must in Saugatuck! Make reservations ahead of time so you get the time you want. The drivers tell funny jokes throughout the ride. You will go super fast on the dunes. A great ride, but very safe. Great for all...More

Taking a dune ride is great fun! You feel like you're on a mini rollercoaster! Lots of laughs and thrills! Just don't wear sandals or flip flops...the driver let's you out to take in the view, and boy did I burn my feet!

Roller coaster made of sand. The driving was a bit terrifying at moments, but SO much fun! Great views and a little bit of a history lesson.

Our guide, Mike, was very entertaining and shared information about local history. The 40 minute trip is over before you know it. Put this at the top of the list of things to do.

The reason why I prefer Saugatuck Dune Rides over other private experiences is what you get for the price. Adults are $20.00, Children (3-11) are $11.00. The ride will last approximately 40-60 minutes and provide you with a... More
