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!

Driving a side-by-side (a 4-wheeler with 2 seats and a steering wheel) into rural Puerto Plata was an eye opener for sure. They actually stopped traffic on the paved road for the 7 of us to cross over onto the dirt roads. There sat an armed military guard protecting the entrance to the roads we were travelling. Unexpected, but on... More

Living in bayou country Louisiana, we ride a lot. However, Junior made this excursion absolutely incredible and fun! The course is scenic and challenging...a lovely combo!

If you are looking for a very safe, clean tour of the DR, this is it. They are very professional, and attentive to all visitors. Our guide spoke English, Spanish, and French the entire trip, and did so quite well. We were picked up at our resort on time, and proceed to visit a government sponsored elementary school. We visited... More

If you are on a cruise ship and don't want a shore excursion where you are riding around in a bus and stopping at every shopping opportunity, choose this one! Fun, mud, drinks, great customer service!
