Very good experience, we discovered a lot of things about Dominican culture and the city of Higuey: Cigar making, cocoa, coffee, visit of a typical Dominican house, visit around a cathedral in the city of Higuey and visit of the Higuey market. It was a very comprehensive tour with our guides Gabriel and Junior.

Interesting tour through fields and small villages. There are stops at a farm and in a cave. There you have the opportunity to go swimming. The beach stop has been canceled due to the aftermath of the hurricane. It's still a lot of fun and you get to see some of the beautiful scenery. Value for money great!

The tour is awesome, so buggy driving. The people on the beach are a bit pushy.

Loved it lovely staff and super exciting highly recommend

Excellent trip and well organised, great value for money.
