This was a lot of fun -- easily worth the money. Manny was our guide and Jose was our driver and they were fantastic. It was eye-opening to see how people live in the Republica Dominicana, including visiting a school. My teenage kids enjoyed the day as well. The chicken for lunch was incredible (I think I had 3 pieces!)... More

My daughter and her girlfriend booked this tour and were apprehensive about the overcast weather. As soon they were picked up, they were informed that the boogie boarding would be cancelled due to safety concerns. They were offered the chance to reschedule, but declined, and made a great choice. The day was full of information about the history, the culture,... More

This tour was absolutely the best!!! The best part for myself was to visit the kindergarten class as I am a teacher. The kids were so proud to show off their work to our guide Manny. They loved having their pictures taken with us. The way Dominicans live out in the country was very interesting. Everything comes from the land.... More

Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone! A real good day out seeing the real Puerto Plata. Stopped at a school, traditional house, a trip into the rain forest and stop at a couple of beaches. Had a great laugh with everyone on the truck, and the rum was flowing :) Junior was an awesome guide!
