We were picked up at the hotel and taken to the meeting point. We were told that we should stay in the minivan until the other minivan arrived because it was too hot outside. The guide, Migel, was super nice, friendly and personable. He specifically asked us how well we spoke English. He then said that he would speak slowly so that we could understand. If we had questions or suggestions, he was always there to implement them. The food tasted great. The trip is worth it, you learn a lot of information about the capital and its history.

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!
