What people are saying about Punta Cana
Given that it was one of the cheapest excursions, I was sceptical as to how good it would be and it turned out to be excellent. Never a dull moment with free drinks and music playing the whole time. The snorkelling was good, there weren’t thousands of fish but there was enough to be entertaining. The staff were lovely and the floating bar was great fun. Would definitely do it again :)
El mejor tour! Nuestro guía turístico Benjamin fue el mejor! Durante el tour Angel fue nuestro fotógrafo el fue genial. el Cateman ride fue muy divertido, bailamos y el show de entretenimiento fue super. Si estas en Punta Cana te recomiendo tomar este tour a la Isla Saona! Definitivamente los mejores!
The only reason trip does not get 5 stars is the stop at the giftshop which i consider a waste of time. USD40 for swimming shorts made in china is a ripoff. I would rather spend the time in Isla Saona
Pedro, the driver was very nice, my first impression on DR was great!!! It was a bit late to pick us up but he made it up with music and conversation, tips and suggestions!!!
It was a decent excursion. 3 stops but at 2 of the stops people are relentlessly hounding u to buy stuff. it is very uncomfortable and stressful. 120 dollars later .
