True, but the attraction of being on any tour at sunset is....seeing the sunset-and don't think for one moment that the marketing people don't know that. Now the weather may make seeing the sunset pretty impossible, but the actual tour should not.

The description said blood-pumping not back breaking. A blood-pumping ride would have been a slow crawl over terrain that looks impossible to drive over not a 30 mph ride on a bumpy road. These guys were looking for a thrill ride. They should have ended the trip saying "wow". Rough riding over small obstacles is not extreme wheeling and the people who run Hummer Affair should know that. It will be interesting to see if anyone posts that they enjoyed a ride with this outfit.

My husband and I took a sunset tour with Hummer Affair and specified that we didn't want thrills and chills - just a ride providing good views of the sunset, preferably where there weren't a lot of people around. When we arrived for the trip, we were the only ones scheduled for the ride and they asked us lots of questions about what kind of trip we wanted. We specified the Schnebly Hill Road area because it had not seemed safe with our rental car.

The Hunmmer was extremely comfortable because we sat in the back seat instead of the added seats attached to the back. They provided a blanket for our legs in case we got cold. The road was bumpy (great suspension on that Hummer, though) and we saw a few rental cars stuck on the road.

Our guide pointed out vegetation, unique rock formations, etc., and made sure we were in a good spot for the sunset. When we continued along the road into a meadow, we saw several deer and it was beautiful.

I realize this is a totally different type of tour from the original poster, but I wanted to point out that other types if tours from them are very nice. My husband and I both have back problems and felt the Hummer would be more comfortable and it was.

Our son was an Army HumVee mechanic in Iraq at the time and that was another reason we wanted to try the Hummer tour. We were very pleased with the ride.

Sounds like the only truthful part of the description was that it would be "an unforgettable experience"...


Thanks for the warning!

I think that these people LOVE to speed through bumps! That's what they do in their spare time. I was a spectator at a S.N.O.R.E. (Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusasts Event) this past weekend, held just outside of Laughlin, Nevada where these folks were present and had one of their HUMMERs entered in the race. My impression was that off road racing is their REAL passion. They had HUMMERAFFAIR.COM painted all over their trucks. Maybe their business is just a convenient way to right off their very expensive hobbie? Maybe the (man-made?) bumps are part of their test track back home?

But in any case, there is NO WAY I would EVER do business with these people based upon there ethics, PERSONAL CONDUCT or TREATMENT OF OTHERS!

(By the way, I was a spectator, not a fellow racer, so there are no sour grapes here.)
