What people are saying about Santo Domingo

We were picked up very punctually, which is probably rather rare in the Dominican Republic. Therefore great. Our tour guide in Santo Domingo was great too. He made every effort to hold the tour in German, which was probably very difficult for him, but we still understood him very well. He showed us many sights and always combined them with a little fun so that the tour didn't seem too boring. At the end we were able to go into 2 souvenir shops and buy souvenirs from the trip. All in one a beautiful day.

Very suggestive tour, the guide kind and helpful in answering my questions. We saw the main monuments and enjoyed walking around the colonial area. The only flaw: the visit to the natural park was too hasty and we did not visit it all.

Nice experience, the guide David was really nice and spoke different lenguajes, everyone in our group enjoy the time and we learning a lot about the history of the city

the trip was great. The tour guide was a unique Victor. He explained everything in three languages. Santo Domingo is worth seeing

To me, there was a lot packed into this tour and it was very well executed.
