Marco and David were very professional. David shared some great history of the island and his own personal experiences. Would totally do it again.
Very friendly, good vehicles, nice tour
My two sons and I went on the dune buggy excursion. We had an awesome time. Archie was our guide. He took the time to tell us some history of Grand Turk and he checked on us to always make sure we were doing good. This was our favorite excursion we have done while on a cruise. We highly recommend this to others. We will be back in Grand Turk next year. Mykids already said we are doing this excursion again.
Lots of fun! Highlight of our vacation!
We were very pleased with our tour. We were hesitant about walking out to find their location, but people gave great directions and it was easy to locate. The dune buggy tour itself was great. Our guide Archie stopped periodically and gave us historical information. He was very personable. The tour included a lot of time on trails which everyone enjoyed. I am sure everyone wondered upon our return what we had been doing since we were all covered in sand dust and splattered mud. It was definitely fun and I highly recommend it!
This time is different from the typical cruise ship excursions. It's day, exciting and gives you some alone time to shop and enjoy local life. It's not for the faint of heart though, if you think the port facilities are day paced, don't book this tour!
The guys took tremendous care of all the riders. However, the equipment was not all in tip top condition. We had one that ended up with a flat tire, one required the driver to hold the shifter in driver, one wouldn't go very fast, and one had the gas pedal stick which ended up driving under a. Are wire fence but no one was hurt and the guys were very good taking care of the situation.
We had so much fun and our guide, Archie, was the best! It allowed us to get out of the cruise port and really see the city. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Grand Turk.
My wife and I did the dune buggy tour. Archie was our guide and he did a great job. It was everything we expected and more. The sights were beautiful and Archie made sure we stopped and had enough time to look around and get some amazing pictures. We will definately be recommending Zoom Zoom to our friends and we will also use Zoom Zoom in the future.
We had the best time! We'll definitely recommend your company to others stopping in Grand Turk
We hard a large group of 13 people, including children. They were extremely helpful when getting us all booked together on the tour. Our guide was Marco and he was great, it was the highlight of our vacation. It was a great way to see the island, hear about its history, have a quick bite to eat or drink, do a small amount of shopping all while speeding around on a dune buggy! We loved the off-roading part and our younger children had a blast! Can't wait to do it again!
We had the best time with the dune buggies!!! I would recommend this for anyone wanting to see the country and have fun with the dune buggy!

Nice alternative of seeing the Island. Less expensive than taking a cruise excursion and there were only 2 buggies to a guide vs a cruise excursion that would at least involve 10 buggies to a guide. Our guide was fun and ninformative. We all felt we received good value for the money. One recommendation would be to request more off-roading than just on the streets.
Marco and Archie were fantastic tour guides. We had so much fun checking out the island. We walked right outside of the port and found them waiting for us. Highly recommend zoom Zoom tours.
My daughter and I were unsure about booking with a company not affiliated with our MSC cruise. But the cruise excursions were fully booked, so we found this company online. They are just outside the parking lot gate (under a blue umbrella). The dune buggys are not as new and modern as the ones offered by the cruise tours, but we had the absolute time of our lives. It was just the two of us, each in our own dune buggy, following a wonderful local who led us around the entire island. We went through mangrove forests, over rocky coral trails, to beaches on the ocean, and so much more. It was an absolute blast! Don't be faint-hearted though. We asked our guide to go fast and give us a thrill and he delivered! It was just great.
A good way to see around a the island without being stuck in a vehicle with a bunch people you don't know. It feels like you are in charge of your own tour when you drive yourself around. And the tour guides were very informative.
what a great tour! The smile's on my husbands and sons faces were priceless! would definitely recommend doing this tour!
Absolutely worth the money. Excellent tour & fun adventure.
This was a fun way to tour the island! Our guide, Zoom Zoom, was awesome!
We had a great Dune Buggy ride, we stopped to shop/get drinks at local market. Our guide stopped at the landmarks for pictures and education about the island. We were able to have fun driving and seeing the island. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone cruising to Grand Turks, it was a great adventure.
Had a great time running around the island in these dune buggies. No better way to tour the island and have a blast on and off-road. I recommend this to anyone visiting Grand Turk.
If I could give 6 stars I probably would! We booked an early tour while on a carnival cruise. Our group only had 4 people, so 2 buggies and our guide. The small group made it really fun as we were really able to do some fun stuff at high speeds. I personally didn't drive, but my husband was giddy as a kid with a new toy. Our guide was so friendly and informative. He took pictures for us as well and was helpful getting gear off and on. The best part had to have been the way he cut loose with us. The only thing on our part that would have helped would have been to book a later time because our departure from the boat got delayed and we had a haul to get outside the cruise center. Hands down the best way to experience this island...adrenaline, culture, sights! There's a lot to see outside the cruise center so get out and zoom zoom.
We were supposed to get dune buggies but they were all out of them. However, they made up really made up for it by giving a tour with the dune buggy after the atv. Great experience overall.
