Art's Dune Tours
Art's Dune Tours - About Us
Hello! Â My name is Rob Costa, son of Art Costa - the King of the Dunes! Â Our Family has had Art's Dune Tours since 1946 - that's over 60 years in business!
My dad started this company with a 1936 Ford Woody. Â He has been taking thousands and thousands of people from all over the world over the dunes of the Province Lands - The Cape Cod National Seashore.
People who talked to my dad cherished the wonderful stories only he can tell in his charming way. Â If you were downtown and talked to Art, you were chatting with a legend.
For those who have been on our tours and come back every year - I want to thank you on behalf of my entire family. Â For those who haven't been with us - "You Gotta Have Art's!"
Fantastic Dune Tour! Our guide Peter was full of knowledge and information of the history of the dunes, his personality shone through. We did the Sunset Tour with dinners. The meals were great also, the barbecues and clambakes were tasty, filling, and the perfect compliment to the tour. Rob, the owner of Arts Dune Tours welcomed us upon arrival and set the tone for the tour. Robs dad Art (The founder ) would be proud of Robs dedication and commitment to customer service and keeping his top notch business alive. This certainly won't be our last tour, we'll be back again with friends and family.... A tip of the hat and a lift of the glass to Rob and Peter for a perfectly memorable evening.
Wife and I took the daily tour (1hr) and had a great time. George L. was a great guide and provided a continuous narrative about the history wildlife and ongoing preservation. Would recommend this to anyone . Great views awesome staff and a chance to see a unique part of Cape Cod .
Tours are fairly short but interesting. Been to the area a dozen times and this is the first dune tour I took. It was worth it. Very comfortable vehicles for the tour.
Samantha was wonderful. Excellent driver and narrator. Beautiful drive through dunes. She was very knowledgeable about dune shacks and history of the area. Stopped for great pics. Highly recommend.
Such a beautiful and unique experience! We booked the sunset tour. They have a fleet of SUVs at the office in Provincetown, everyone is given a tour group and piles in. After a short drive, you turn off the main road to the dune trail- only park rangers and Art's vehicles are allowed to drive here. The ride is bumpy but fun, and our guide had great knowledge on the history, flora and fauna of the dunes. At the crest of one of the last big dunes before you hit the ocean, the tour stopped for pictures and the guides were happily willing to snap pics for everyone. Then we headed down to the ocean and an amazing beach (which we had to ourselves because, again, no one is allowed there). The sand was super fine and the ocean blue and crisp. Everyone waded into the waves and had a great time while the guides set up chairs for everybody. Then we all sat and ate (you can bring your own food and drink with you, we brought cheese and crackers and some beer!) while we watched the sun go down. Some seals swam along the shore and we could see a whale spouting in the distance! Guides joked and talked and never made us feel rushed to leave. Unique, interesting, beautiful and relaxing- if you're in the Provincetown area it's definitely worth a go.
