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.

Lovely day trip, very friendly and knowledgeable guide and driver. Lunch was in a lovely restaurant and a great selection of food and cold drinks. The only negative thing was the ‘gift shops’ we were taken too, even with the 40% discount they were much more expensive than our hotel Gift shop. We would have preferred a 1 hour free time to look around by ourselves.

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!

Exploring the hidden waterfall and cave with Carlo and Alberto was truly remarkable. They paid such close attention to every detail and their passion for the area shone through, making each moment unforgettable. We highly recommend this adventure to anyone seeking an unforgettable journey in Santo Domingo!

Super guide, explained a lot and took great care of his guests
