Well worth a trip to the capital, the only problem with the day tour is its a long day with about 6 hours total spent on the bus, if your coming for 2 weeks its worth considering taking 2 days out of the resort and making your own way up on the public express bus, staying a night in a hotel and coming back the next day in the afternoon.

Including an overnight stay? Not to my knowledge available, day trip prices range from different tour operators

I'm interested in this too, especially as a day trip, 6 hours isn't too long, as I've done Cairo by bus, now that's a long day, 7hrs each way :-)

Have to agree with Veritas...Santo Domingo should be done over 2 days. One day will simply be a bus ride and a fast track through the Conde. I was in Santo Domingo last week. Although it now takes about 3 hours to get TO Santo Domingo, it will take another 45 minutes minimum just to get from Las Americas to the Conde...the same thing on the way out.

There are some decent hotels in the Conde such as Mercure that allow you to enjoy the core of the city at a much more relaxed pace.

Cheers
