Emilio made booking our return airport transfer easy. We arranged everything online. He was waiting with a sign when we arrived and had beer waiting for us in the car. The ride was comfortable and smooth and Emilio stopped at a lookout so we could take a few pictures. He arrived at the hotel when promised for the trip back... More

The transfer was on time and given in very good quality. We received two fresh coconuts to drink. Martin was very good driver. I recommend to use the Optima airport transfer for all travelers who seeking reliable transfer service in DR.

Service was impeccable. Driver picked us up as scheduled and took my girlfriend and I to the El Limon waterfall in a nice air conditioned vehicle. We wanted to hike to the waterfall instead of taking a horse so we were assigned a local who led us up the 45 minute hike, took some photos of us in the waterfall... More

We had an excellent service and would highly recommend Optima. We used them for our airport transfers both ways. Safe, reliable and fairly priced. We will use again when we visit this little piece of heaven on earth.

Also, the process of booking was easy, and Emilio always got back to me promptly with confirmations or to answer any questions that I... More

Based on a few reviews here on Tripadvisor, we thought we would give Optima a shot. Booking online was easy, and pickup at the resort was smooth. The day started off great, as we were picked up in a recent model Honda Odyssey minivan (very comfortable). Kelvin was a good and cautious driver, while Sandro acted as our tour guide.... More
