What people are saying about Bayahibe

We are absolutely thrilled. We travel a lot and this was by far the best and most beautiful tour we have ever done. The tour is worth every penny. The guides (we had Christian) an absolute dream. You feel very well cared for right from the start. The entire team makes sure that everything fits and responds very individually to the wishes of the guests. We had never experienced such hospitality. The whole thing is accompanied by a photographer (we had Manuel) - also amazing. You can decide afterwards whether you want the photos or not. Honestly, we paid about $40 for all photos (120 pieces). That's more than fair - we also gave more because Manuel tried very hard and conjured up really great photos! The individual locations that are approached are amazing! You can collect such great impressions. We can only recommend - do the tour!

I didn’t know paradise like this existed in real life. Unbelievable scenery. Paradise perfected. The Turtle Nursery in Mano Juan is a must. Señor Negra is saving this island and more. The snorkeling and swimming are the best anywhere. Guides are awesome, lunch was delicious, and the dancing was so much fun! I would take this tour again and again and again!!!

Everything was excellent. From pick up, that was fast and well organized to drop off. We enjoyed every part of the excursion and would definitely recommend this over a standard trip to Saona where you travel on the boat for longer than you spend on the island!

It is a paradise on earth, one of the best tours with excellent guides

Very well organised & Dominican Attitude were great
