Communication and collection was easy and correct. Altos de Chavon was unfortunately rushed through - which we were also aware of. We were almost alone for that. On the other hand, we were about 60 people on the catamaran. Nevertheless it was really great, also the swim stop in the sea at the sandbar. We even saw starfish. Then we were about 2.5 hours on Saona and there was something to eat and drink on the boat all the time. We went back by speedboat and on the way back we stopped at a small cafe where you could buy souvenirs but didn't have to. From the organization, price and appearance of the island really recommendable

I can only recommend the tour. My partner (30) and I (25) had the tour in early March. The natural pool and especially the beach on Saona Island was a dream. Altos de Chavon was also quite interesting. We were well taken care of, and got plenty of drinks and rum. It was a lot of fun with the tour guides and the whole team.
