U-Drive Sand Buggy Tours

The most fun desert sand buggy tour experience available!

What’s better than driving a 800cc 2-seat UTV sand buggy over cool Arizona terrain with your best bud by your side?  How about having a guide to lead the way so you don’t get lost!  Ha ha ha, no but really…  Anyways, our customer reviews on this Sand Buggy tour through the Sonoran Desert are through the roof!

This isn’t some slow-speed, single file sand buggy tour.  This is a smile-a-second ride through super-cool Sonoran desert track: rock gardens, sandy washes, twisty canyons, and technical two track.

We bring the buggies, helmets, gators, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks.  At our midway stop, drivers and passengers can swap, so everyone gets a chance to get behind the wheel.

Our guides are always excited to share their extensive knowledge about The Sonoran Desert.  You will learn that many plants not only survive, but thrive in the harsh conditions of the desert and some plants have even evolved so they can grow in the extreme desert heat.  You will also learn that The Sonoran Desert is the only place in the world where the famous saguaro cactus are found and some are even homes to many desert creatures.

So, you bring you and see why this is the funnest Sand Buggy desert tour out there! Just minutes from Scottsdale and Phoenix!
