Beyond our expectations. At the beginning, we were disappointed to see a group of 30 people go with us on excursions, in the end the group was great, very respectful. The guide was exceptional, the island Soana is breathtaking, the pina colada a delight! The return in catamaran with the animators very funny. I recommend it ! I did not find the merchants too harassing (less than in Bavaro). Go there for an incredible day !

we loved the excursion, everything was very well organized. transfer from our hotel to the catamaran. Thanks to Christian our guide for the day. there were also photographers on site, they took wonderful photos. the bar and the buffet is very good. Saona Island is just sublime I highly recommend taking a tour. Plan the full day from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We are group of 16 and everything went normal from pickup to drop off. We all had so much fun at Saona island and natural pool. Thanks to all who made this possible for us.

A very nice trip! Everything super organized! 50% cheaper than in the hotel, that's why we decided! I highly recommend and greet "Daddy" our guide ☺️
