    This is more of a minivan trip up the mountain and a ride to the church. The guide made up the trip as we went along. He mentioned he was deported from the USA. He also sent us into the church alone because the Bishop didn’t allow him to go inside for unknown reasons. He did take good pictures of us. We never went to a school and he was not aware it said that on the excursion description. On the way back to the resort, the driver did not have money to pay the toll. He asked us for the money. No preparation. And felt unsafe. Do not book.

    it was a wonderful experience. It was good to see how people in the city live. We had an excellent tour guide and learnt a lot about the history of the different places visited. We rolled our own very cigars, got some sugar cane, fruits from the market, and had some real local DR cuisine not included in tour cost.

    All in all, it was a great excursion.

    This tour was excellent! They offered more than they described, they had Open Bar through out the day, they made sure you are comfortable every second. The local experience was very good, and recommend guests to bring some stationery, toys, etc not cash to the local kids, they appreciate it very much. The horse back riding was fun, and the Macao Beach is extremely beautiful, we wish we could stay longer in the beach. Our tour guide is Raphel, his team picked us up on time and great service. Highly recommend this tour.
