This was very awesome. I brought my GoPro and recorded the drive! Time goes very fast, and I will certainly be going back next trip to Vegas! The guide/leader of our group Mr. Goodnight was great. I will mention that I didn't see MGM Grand on the list of pickup options with Viator, but when I reconfirmed the day before with the company, they updated my pickup location and did in fact pick me up at MGM Grand.
I can't see how a half-hour tour can do this any justice. I went for an hour and I wanted more. I was picked up at my hotel in a cool looking van with a biggie on top. Mark was a friendly and get up and go kind of guy. We were dropped off to get the equipment and to watch a safety video. After a lot of signing waivers , it was off to the races. My buddy from Canada and I were the only 2 on the hour long race. Our guide, Dave was cooler than cool and a really nice guy. We did have a few bumps in the road. Stalling and changing buggies but al in all, it was quite a ride. Half way through, you stop onto of a dune and take pictures of The Strip in the background and get rehydrated. I have two tips, ask for extra cushions for your back and seat and take water with you. You get thirsty fast. I can't wait for next year to go back.
This is a great fun-packed experience if you want to get away from all the bling of Las Vegas and venture out into the Nevada desert. It's a short drive outside of the city, and the staff is really helpful. Driving through the desert with these buggies is exhilarating and speeding over a dune with the skyline of Vegas in the distance underneath a blue sky was a highlight of my trip.
