“Yelkis”...was very polite, punctual, and very respectful the whole time with us and informative.He explained the location, the agriculture, and area in general as we travelled to our destination. He was happy to answer all our questions Would recommend to future family and friends, the bus was so clean and the best music! Another thing is he also opens the door and closed for you at all time !

Edwin and his wife were absolutely fantastic tour guides! My parents and I wanted to do something special on our last day in Punta Cana so we booked this tour late the night before. They were excellent communicators and arranged to pick us up right outside of our Airbnb right away that morning and we’re very accommodating when we were running a few minutes late. They took us all over the city and were excellent drivers with lots of great insight and facts. The tour itself was awesome and we visited places I never thought were possible.. Edwin even tried to help us find a place to print, twice, although they were closed due to it being Sunday. The tour is just the right amount of time and it flew by fast with good music, food and company. I cannot recommend this tour and Edwin more, these are some of the nicest and most hospitable people I’ve ever met and one of the most exciting and private tours we’ve ever been on.

We were picked up in time and the only 2 on the tour. Nothing was too much trouble for us and all at a keisuley pace. Had a very good insight to Dominican Republic visiting cocoa, coffee plantation and typical house Than went on to cathedral where guide was fantastic before going to see Macau beach. All topped off with trip to the mall. George our drive and guide as superb.
Only negative the extra for drinks and snacks was not worth it.

Cultural tour
Jan 2020 • Family
Our tour was excellent. They picked us up right in front of the hotel on time and were very friendly. Although neither of the guides spoke English they used google translate to communicate. The only issue we had was after we finished with the cathedral we were supposed to go to a beach and they headed back to the hotel. I realized after we passed the beach signs and asked about it. They ended up turning around and taking us to the beach. I’m not sure if they forgot or just wanted to finish things up quicker. This was the perfect tour for a family with small kids or even middle size kids. It was private so they went at our pace and helped us find bathrooms when we needed them. Half day was the perfect length of time for our younger kids. I also was thrilled that it was a hands on cultural experience for them so they will remember better. Would definitely recommend.

Everything begins with a great customer service provided Christian. He makes sure to take care of all the little details like the pick up time and in our case a baby seat. The driver was nice and proffecinal, first place we visited was the cacao and tabacco plantation. They even gave us a free hand made cigar that was made right in front of us. Then they drove us to the amazing cathedral and to the local market.very important the driver made sure that we were safe at all times.
And last but not less the Macao natural beach,it is really amazing place.
Great service and definitely recommend.

False advertising about a 32.95 half day tour and needs to be taken down
Jul 2019 • Couples
I have tried three different days to book this half day tour and every time it more than doubles this price. It has been a waste of my time and trip advisor you need to take action and cover your reputation and have this lie taken down.Shame on you for this conniving tactic or so I am assuming that you know about this or should know because they are using your name.

Sincerely Discouraged

My friends and i took this tour. Henry was our driver and guide and he did a wonderful job. He took his time and answered the questions we had about Dominican agriculture, economy and daily life for the average Dominican. We visited the cigar shop where we were watched a cigar being made, and we were given one to smoke. It was actually fun for someone who is not a smoker! (Try the cognac flavored one) In addition, we visited the Basilica in Higuey, which was beautiful and walked through an outdoor food market. Unfortunately, after we had returned to our hotel, we realized there was one thing advertised in the tour description that we did NOT do, and that was visit Macao Beach. Even though we did not visit the beach, I still enjoyed the tour and am glad that we had Henry as our guide.
