Our guide was Aaron & he was very good - very knowledgeable & entertaining. At the point of the tour where they stop & let you get out of the vehicle he took the time to talk to my mom who is disabled & unable to get out & walk around. Super nice of him. Speaking of people with disabilities,... More

We thought we would do dune rides a little closer to home but found that the one in Saugatuck wasn't the same experience as Mac Woods.

This was one of the best things about our trip to Michigan. We took our 2 teenagers with us and we all had a blast! The dune buggy ride is about 45 minutes long in an open air truck with 4 rows of seats. Your guide stops along the way and tells you fun and interesting facts about the area.... More

The whole ride is about 45 minutes. The ride was fun. The offer a number of interesting history regarding the dunes. They all bring you through the wooded area behind the dunes. The views from the various points are beautiful and picturesque. I would recommend doing this.

We weren't sure what to expect as this attraction seemed a bit touristy. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Our guide Ian was an excellent driver and made the trip very fun taking the curves nice and fast so we could experience the thrill of the run. He was also very informative on the narrative part of this tour... More

We were going to pass on this as our teenagers were not too excited about the idea - however they loved it. It was worth the trip. Our only complaint was the cost we thought it was a bit costly for the amount of time . The tour guide was great, the stories nice and the sights wonderful.

Fun, educational and entertaining! The scenery was beautiful. Our guide was knowledgeable as to the history of the dunes and the area and entertaining as well. Both my 16 year old and 8 year old loved it! The dune ride goes much faster than I anticipated but that just added to the fun, especially for the kids. As my 8... More
