  • Very informational and our guides were fantastic. Two stops with water so wear your suit. The stop at the Catholic church I was not prepared for as you couldnt go in with your chest/bust out if your swimwear was revealing. They had large smocks to put over you which were HOT. I had a swim cover that I was able to close over myself thank goodness. There was a photographer on our bus as well that took pics the entire day for sale if you liked any.

  • This was a nice change of pace from the resort. We were picked up at 8:30. However, it took about an hour before the tour got fully underway due to several others having to be picked up from their hotel.

    We learned some interesting things about Dominican culture that are not things that would be learned while remaining isolated on the resort. Our first stop was at a school house in the country side. We didn't get out, but just stopped for a few seconds to get a lesson on how their school system work. The children were fascinated by our stop and some waved and ran out to hand us flowers. We weren't sure if it was real or staged, but it just seemed rather strange. Next we did the horseback riding which was about 15-20 minutes and was a very nice experience. The horses looked fairly healthy but the dogs at the farm looked malnourished. There was some very beautiful wood carvings there that we purchased and also some artwork and jewel that we were being pushed hard to purchase, but we declined being as it just wasn't all that great. At the horse farm we also had a brief lesson in Dominican cigars which was cool.

    We then went to lunch which wasn't really that great, but we were very hungry by this point so it was satisfactory enough. From there we went to a local farm where we learned some interesting facts about the Cacao plant, how chocolate is made etc. And visited the home of the family who supposedly ran the farm. The house was obviously staged. Still it was cool to see and get a general idea of how some Dominicans live. We also visited a church in the town of Higuey. It was very gaudy looking on the outside but nice on the inside, but nothing particularly spectacular about it being as it was built in the 20th century, but there was a 17th century painting at the altar of the Virgin Mary which was wonderful to see.

    We did visit the local market which seemed rather pointless since we didn't stop to talk about some of the exotic fruits and vegetables we were seeing or even get a lesson in how they receive their product how well it sales etc. There was another opportunity to shop for souvenirs while downtown but be ready to be bombarded by children begging for money and trying to sell stuff.

    Our last stop was Macao Beach, which was beautiful. We only had 20 minutes there but our guide allowed us more time because the water was so wonderful. There was seaweed on the beach, but not enough to complain about.

    Overall the excursion was okay. The countryside and mountains were beautiful but there was lots of trash everywhere just thrown on the side of the road. I'm not sure what the Half Day tour includes but I don't think it'd be worth your time. The full-day tour was nice but not worth 90. I'd say 50-75 might be about right. Make sure you bring a hat or pull your hair back because the bus is a safari jeep with no windows and therefore the wind is very strong and relentless. Your hair will be a mess. Also bring a roll of toilet paper if you can fit it in your bag. We had to go to the restroom in Higuey and they were handing out three squares of toilet paper at the door to use, no lie. So it might be best to have some on you in case you need more. The best thing about the excursion was the tour guides, the alcohol and people. A very diverse group of tourist was on our tour. The alcohol was a nice distraction from the fact that this tour really was just ok.

  • The half day tour was nice. It does not involve shopping like we thought it would. I repeat, no shopping on half day tour. There was plenty of water, soda and alcohol on board the bus. The tour was good for the price. A nice get off the resort tour.

  • This tour was amazing! Enjoyed learning about the culture of the natives. Lots to see. Tour made one appreciate our way of living. Americans are very blessed.

  • This tour was amazing. We learned a lot about Punta Cana and enjoyed interacting with the people.

  • overall a great trip. I was not impressed with the horseback ride. The horses were dirty and very skinny. Part of the trip also includes a walk through a farmers market which I could have done without. We didnt even stop to look at anything and there were kids following us begging for money. Make sure you bring enough cash to tip the tour guide and bar tender at the end. We only brought some cash and ended up tipping the horse guides and buying some things and didn't have enough money for a tip at the end. Overall it was a great way to see Dominican life and the guides were great.

  • Excellent tour, not recommended for pregnant women or for kids 2 years or younger.
    Very informative about the culture, food, cigar, horseback riding, cocoa trees left and right. The rest you find for yourself,
    Watch out its a little bumpy ride :
    Have fun

  • The tour was great and the tour guide and bartender were fabulous. They were fun and informative. There was a photographer with us, from another company he said, taking pictures of the tour group. He was trying to sell a CD with the photos, including the history of the DR and Dominican music for 30 for the half day tour. I thought it was a bit pricey and didn't buy, but I felt bad. I don't think he made any money that day. We tipped the tour guide, telling him it for everyone, and we hope he really did share it.

  • Had an awesome time!! Would love to do this again. Saw and experience Punta Cuna's culture up close. The tour guides were very tentative to make sure we had a great time!!

  • Great experience. We recommend if you want to know something about the country outside resorts. Professional team, experienced guide - Herman has been speaking in 3 languages en, esp, dutch. Cigar factory with possibility to taste cigars plus coconut and sugar cane. Travel through countryside and through city of Higuey which gives you insight into lives of ordinary people. Cathedral in the city is also great. You will not visit local school in july-august because they have summer holiday. We missed also cocoa and coffee tasting and production - that was only in full day trip. But overall very good trip!
