Our tour today was great. Of course, it took some time to pick up other guests and also when we arrived at the flinstone buggy Station we had to wait for others. But in total we had a great ride, nice views on fields and animals and a very Good stay at the „Dominican camp” with very nice people. Our buggy was very fast and there were some bache where we got very dirty. So out in stuff what really can get dirty! Enjoy :)

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.

We really enjoyed the Excellence Tour with the dolphins. We were able to interact with the dolphins a lot and beautifully in a way that is seldom seen. The dolphins are so well trained and did everything great. We were very satisfied.

Very friendly staff and good service and the price was pretty moderate and the only thiythat really bugged me was the photo price 100$ for photos and videos was too much that’s why no one bought any photos

It was worth it for the price. We saw three different locations
