  • The biggest problem with educational type tours is understanding the speaker. Even speaking English it was hard to understand the guide. We enjoyed all the locations and the meal. I felt too much time was spent at the church and the shopping area we were taken to was just a very over-priced souvenir shop.

  • Most of the itinerary listed on the tour such as sightseeing was simply just riding on the bus, also alot of the time was taken up by picking up other tourists transferring from one bus/shuttle to another.

  • If you are staying in Punta Cana for all your stay in DR its a great trip to see something different and a historic capital. It also gives you an opportunity to see the countryside along the 3 hour trip there.

  • We left Punta Cana at 7am and arrived back at 7pm. the guide had arranged for two rest stops in the am and one in the pm, which was great! the tour involved the inner city and historical area where Columbus would have landed and the house where family lived later. That was educational. This is a walking tour. We had a fabulous buffet lunch in a restaurant. one stop at a cathredral a play about pirates which could have been skipped, and a shopping hour at the end. It was enjoyable. We had one downpour of rain and they hurried and got umbrellas for us! The 2nd guide in the museum was very repetitive in his speech and I would have preferred the first one to keep going. It was a successful day and we enjoyed it, and learned a lot!

  • Great trip visiting DR's capital.

  • Pick-up was on time. Guide Nacho was entertaining and very knowledgeable. Driver Melbin was a safe driver.

    Sites were amazing! Lunch was just ok. Unfortunately, whole trip back was in the heat - air conditioning in bus not working.

  • spent more time driving to/from santo domingo than you actually did in the city. the tour guide was very confusing and rushed through his facts of several sites

  • Lots of history to see p. Walking allows you to see much more. Lunch at a very nice local restaurant. Bus tour through the city allows to se the streets and architecture. Very good guides. Chance to do some local shopping! Overall a very good trip, saw countryside and the bus is air conditioned and comfortable. Well worth the time and the money.

  • Great tour of the historic city.

  • The tour was really fun. Our guide Dario was awesome!
