We had the day trip to Saona Island booked though Tui, we paid less for the "Simple" rather than VIP trip as we have been before and did the VIP last time. What I would say is, if you don't want a lobster dinner, don't...More

We booked a tour through Amstar. Overall it was a pleasant experience. A couple of cons first: VIP tour is supposed to have less people - this is generally not true, they take as many people as they can (we had 45) One the experiences...More
