Generally speaking it was a fun and well organized day. The guide was friendly, well informed and he spoke Spanish, English and German fluently. The stop at the "market" (classic sales stop) at the end was very unnecessary though. After the stop we got some free time to go for a drink. The guide could just as well have told us to go for a drink straight away. Instead he let the whole group wait at the souvenir shop even though most of us weren't interested in buying anything. All in all, a good and fun day though with a lot of interesting stops and interesting information provided by the guide.

Until we drove from Punta Cana to Santo Domingo, it took a good 1.5 hours with waiting. We definitely saw the most important sights, the guide was also very friendly and was able to give a lot of background information. During the tour we sat on the bus a lot and didn't have much time at the individual stops. In hindsight I would book a private tour as the size of about 25 people was already big. The tour didn't last 9.5 hours, but 12 hours.

The excursion was great. Was picked up on time and drove straight to Las tres ojos. Our guide told the story and then we continued to Santo Domingo. Here, too, our guide has carried out. Overall it was a great trip.

Raul, our guide and driver, was exceptional. Santo Domingo is a beautiful town

Excellent excursion, exhausting but I recommend it 100%
