Hello to all readers!, The tour was just recommendable. The tres ochos nacional parque was wonderful (guide told us a bit about the caves and their myths), Lago de los deseos>Wish Fulfillment Fountain. Then we went on to Santo Domingo, offering a lot (beautiful buildings, historical places, a lot about Christopher Columbus) and good shopping for Kakoo, cigars, Mamajuana (national drink). Overall very worth seeing and a must see if you come to this island.

The tour is very well managed. You can see all the important sights. Booked online on site, everything went well. Only the bus ride was a bit chaotic, and the bus could have been more comfortable

I know up was right in time. Gave us plenty of time to browse and visit specific spots. Printed out key pieces of historical significance and was very friendly with everyone.

Monuments and a lot of historical content. The tour conducted by the guide was excellent.

Well organized and informative. Beautiful sights. Delicious Dominican lunch.
