What time do I need to arrive for my You-Drive UTV Tour?
Our tour times are riding times. Start time is departure time. We can’t depart until all business is complete and you are familiar with your vehicle. We do all of this prior to departure to maximize riding time. The email confirmation you receive will have important information about what time you should arrive, please read it carefully. We complete any business we may have such as payment or waivers, select safety gear and have a thorough orientation to your vehicle prior to departure. For most tours you must arrive 30 minutes prior to start time and orientation begins 15 minutes prior to departure time. Out of courtesy to other guests, if you are not here with all business complete and gear selected when orientation begins, you will forfeit your spot on the tour without refund. Think of it like catching a flight. You wouldn’t arrive at the airport at departure time. If you have any questions about this, please CONTACT US.
2. How do I get to the meeting point?
For some of our UTV You-Drive tours, we leave right from our location at 1041 S. Main Street. You must arrive 30 minutes before your tour departure time to complete any outstanding business, select gear and receive a thorough orientation to your vehicle. Out of courtesy to all guests, if you are not present with all business completed and gear selected to participate in the vehicle orientation, you WILL forfeit your spot on the tour without refund.
We trailer your UTV to the trailhead for our You-Drive tours on Poison Spider, Metal Masher and The Works. Your email confirmation will have important information for picking up gear and meeting your tour.
For our Moab Mega Buggy Ride-Along tours, we have a couple ways to meet your tour based on availability. Maps to the trailhead let you take the beautiful drive in the comfort of your own vehicle and gives you the ability to leave the trailhead directly without coming back to our office. Or, check with us for availability of our free shuttle or escort/lead car.
3. What happens if it is raining?
We find that rain can make the area even more beautiful, so we operate rain or shine! However, in cases of extreme weather that requires us to cancel, we will offer you the opportunity to reschedule or receive a refund.
4. How fit do I need to be?
We welcome all fitness levels on our tours! You will be riding in or driving a well-equipped vehicles, and no walking is required. However, there are places where the best views are located a short walk away. While these extra treks are optional, you’ll likely have a better time if you get out to see them.
5. What is your operating season?
Our operating season is generally the first part of March through Thanksgiving weekend each year. Our last day of operation for 2020 will be November 29 and we will return March 1, 2021, weather permitting. Our 2021 calendar is up to date and accepting reservations now.
6. How many people can fit into one vehicle?
We our proud of our 2020 Kawasaki KRX 1000 tour fleet. These rock crawling UTVs have capacity for up to two passengers.
Our Moab Mega Buggy has space for up to five guests.
7. What should I bring? How should I prepare for the tour?
We recommend that you bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, a camera, a jacket, and closed-toe shoes. You may also wish to dress in layers, as the temperature can fluctuate throughout the day. Lastly, we make good on our promise to bring your adventure, so please eat a hearty meal before joining us!
What is the difference between a mega buggy tour and a typical Jeep tour?
OUR MOAB MEGA BUGGY VEHICLEwas custom-designed to handle the different types of Moab terrain. It is not a converted Jeep, Hummer, or SUV, and we built the Moab Mega Buggy from the ground up to provide you a safe and exciting 4×4 adventure. No post-manufacturing modifications necessary!
2. What does 2 vehicle minimum mean on some of your tours?
Some trails require a two (2) vehicle minimum following our guide. If you would like to run the tour in a single vehicle and another party does not join the tour, we offer the option of paying a small “solo vehicle” surcharge and turning the tour into a private ride without the private tour price. You have the option of accepting or declining this surcharge at the time of booking if there are no other guests previously booked.
3. Can I drive the 4×4?
You can absolutely drive our UTVs. That’s exactly what they are for. Our guide is there to ensure you don’t get lost on the trail and help you tackle the obstacles like a pro. You must be a licensed driver between the ages of 18 and 75 to drive.
Though we’re sure you’re a great driver, sadly we cannot allow you to drive the Moab Mega Buggy. But don’t worry: our guides know how to give you an epic adventure!
4. Can I use my own UTV on your tours?
Yes! We are happy to have you participate on our tours in your UTV provided it is properly equipped and set up for your trail choice and terrain. Please call us to discuss.
5. Are there ways to join your tours without driving a UTV?
Yes, if you would like to join our tours but do not wish to drive a UTV, consider our Moab Mega Buggy ride-along tour or give us a call for other options.
6. Can I request a specific trail?
If you have a trail in mind that is not listed in our trail portfolio, please CONTACT US for a private tour. We can help you plan your own epic adventure.
Is it safe?
Absolutely. We are proud to bring you Moab’s safest Side By Side fleet. Custom performance roll cages exceed manufacturers bolt together safety standard. We equip them with front and rear bumpers and rock rails protecting soft plastic body panels that can give way. You have a left and right side mirrors as well as an upgraded center rearview mirror offering a wide radius view. We equip each tour UTV with 6-point safety harnesses. Lastly, our tour fleet is impeccably maintained and exclusively used for guided tours. What does this mean? Your vehicle has never been out of our sight. While we tackle the tough trails, we do so with skill that we pass along to our guests so you can be sure your vehicle has not been “driven like a rental” at any time.
And, as for the Moab Mega Buggy, we custom-built this vehicle to the highest safety standards. Our mega buggies feature 4-point safety harnesses, racing seats, and are made of 2” heavy wall DOM tubing. In addition, while most touring vehicles have some sort of sport bar or cage bolted onto a finished vehicle, Epic’s mega buggies are one giant roll cage chassis, allowing them to handle even the most intense terrain in the safest manner with ease.
2. Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, all riders must sign a waiver. Riders younger than 18 years of age must have it signed by a parent or guardian. Riders younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
3. Is tipping our guide customary?
Our guides work hard to keep you safe and ensure you have a great time wheeling with us. They strive to bring you the best experience and create memories and stories you’ll share for years to come. A gratuity let’s them know they did a good job and you had a great time. Tipping is not mandatory and we never add a gratuity to our scheduled tours. Our guides strive to earn it and are grateful when you feel they’ve earned it too.
4. What does the Vehicle Damage Waiver cover?
$15/Vehicle Damage Waiver limits your out of pocket costs to a deductible of $1000+tax for damage to our equipment in the event of an accident. Your damage waiver also includes damage to one tire OR one drive belt with a $30 deductible in the event of damage. Damage Waiver is void if damage as a result of reckless driving or failure to follow your guides instruction. Damage Waiver is void if you are found to have ANY alcohol or drugs in your system at the time of damage.
5. What about Liability Insurance?
When you sign a rental agreement for our UTV/You Drive Tours you become a covered driver under our liability insurance subject to all policy terms and conditions. This coverage has a $2500 deductible per accident. If you are involved in an accident with any other person, vehicle or property you agree to pay us $2500 at the time of the accident regardless of fault in the accident.
Our coverage provides the following limits of liability:
$100,000 per person for bodily injury
$50,000 for property damage
$300,000 total for any one accident
Everyone’s insurance needs are different and we make no representation that our liability limits are adequate for you. We are not insurance brokers, agents or providers. If you have questions about coverages, we suggest you contact your insurance agent/broker.
6. What age is the tour appropriate for?
We do not have a specific age requirement for children but children must weigh 30 pounds or more. Our safety harnesses are remarkably safe for both youth and adults, but they are not designed for child car seats or standard vehicle booster seats. For smaller children and children under 8, we have a special booster seat designed for the harnesses in our UTVs and in the Moab Mega Buggy. Minor children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Older adults will also have a great time on the tour. In fact, one of our staff members brought along her 92-year-old grandmother who had a blast!
Drivers for our You-Drive UTV Tours must be a licensed driver between the ages of 18 and 75 to comply with our insurance requirements.
7. Can my pet join the tour?
We love our pets too but our 4X4 tours are just not the place for them. We do not have seats or harnesses to keep them safe.
