Amazing! The tour was well organized and the tour gide clearly stated what and when we gonna do what. The local food was tasty, the waterfall horse ride bumpy but the view talks for itself. Bacardi island - wow! Also pineapple picacolada was included. Tips for others: bring long socks for horse ride - they give you boots cuz the way down is messy. A downgrade was horse rider who all asked for tips stating that they dont get any money, which is weird and knowing this country it may be their way of just getting the extra cash, when we wanted to give a guy few dollars he asked to go under a bush so no one could see it.

We all found the trip to Samana Bay very nice. We were picked up on time and took the bus to the marina, where we were then taken over to Samana Bay by boat. Once there, we had time to enjoy the beach. Afterwards there was a rich lunch. Then we went on by boat and transport for horse riding through a jungle where we came to a great waterfall. All in all, a successful excursion. We would definitely recommend it.

For the most part we liked the excursion very much, but we have to say that the exit was obviously not that pleasant for the horses. We were very sorry afterwards. The fact that the companions begged for a tip very obtrusively when we left the room was rather ugly. Otherwise, the guide, the drive, the food, the pick-up and also the Barcadi island were very nice and we would say that the money was worth it.

Organization at the top lost a little time in the morning the time of taking care of everyone .... Very nice guide I recommend ...

Excellent excursion to discover the interior of the land, the flora of the island. Rich adventure!
