Diana was am amazing host! Kept conversations the entire time! Knew facts about what seemed to be every part of the Island! Kept us engaged and made us feel like friends and not just customers or guests! I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to feel like they want to actually experience Santo Domingo!

The walking tour was great. Was just our party (4 adults, 1 toddler), and we did the tour starting at 5pm, which was a good time of day. The sights and history were really enjoyable, and we loved our guide Fernando. Would recommend!
