Grand Turk Dune Buggy Excursion Reviews

Grand Turk Dune Buggy cruise excursion
Overall Rating
Skirt the beaches of Grand Turk in a two-person dune buggy. Trek up to the bluff for a scenic view and keep your eye out for pink flamingos.

Nice way to get off the ship and spend a couple of hours driving around seeing sights.

There is nothing to do in this port if you do not do an excursion. We did the ATV tour and the tour was good, lots of fun and we had some time after to go swimming at the port.

The so-called "Dune Buggies" were not. They were Gator off road vehicles. MUCH more bumpy and less responsive than a true dune buggy. They had real dune buggies available; we saw another tour group riding around in them. But our group ended up with tall off road work vehicles. We still got to see a good deal of the island but it was false advertising. We paid for and expected dune buggies. We got something far different.

It was worth every penny! We saw random horses, donkeys, cows. It was a beautiful country!

2 person buggies on and off road (not too extreme), got to see most of the island with a couple of photo stops. maximum speed of 30MPH and guides were safety conscious. Got to see all of the wild donkies, horses and cows roaming around the streets. Had a wild horse racing along beside us for awhile. Fun excursion.

Since we aren't beach people we needed something to do. The beach here is gorgeous, but the island is covered with rocks, scraggly bushes, and desolate looking living areas. On the dune buggy tour you have to follow in a close-knit straight line all around the area. It wasn't really a dune buggy either, but a two person ATV with a cage. It beat sitting on the beach for hours, but wasn't our favorite tour.

The only reason this was not a 5+ was because the guide buggy kept stalling out, and it wasted some of our time. It was not his fault, but the company should make sure the equipment is up to functioning correctly. The guide, Barry was great, very knowledgable about the islands. We stopped on ahill and had an amazing view of the coast, some other islands, and Barry told us all about them. We went to a lighthouse on the other side of the island, we got the history of the islands, the lighthouse, and had a great trip. At the lighthouse they came and changed out the guide's ride so it was better after that. Just remember down there, as Barry stated, "the left side is the right side and the right side is suicide".
