Know More about this tour

You will be picked up at your Punta Can hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned van, mini bus or bus (depending on the group size). You will be greeted by an experienced, professional guide who will be your personal guide from the day's start to finish.

The first stop in the capital will be at the Three Eyes National Park with underground caves and lagoons used by the Taino Indians (the Dominican Republic's original inhabitants). From there you'll make a quick photo stop at the Columbus Lighthouse, built in 1992 on the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' landing in the New World. Then you will be off to the oldest streets of the Western Hemisphere in Santo Domingo's Colonial Zone, a 16-square block neighborhood oozing with Dominican history and culture.

Your first peek at the Colonial Zone comes at the Columbus Palace. Completed in 1514, it was the home of Christopher Columbus's son, Diego. From the Palace you will walk through the historic Plaza de Espana and onto Calle Las Damas (the fist paved street of the New World). The ultimate destination is one of the most important sites in the Dominican Republic: the First Cathedral of the New World.

Lunch will then be served at one of the top Dominican restaurants in Santo Domingo, known for it's excellent home style cooking and typical dance performances by the waiters and waitresses. After lunch, you'll pass by some of the modern areas of the capital and the National Palace where the Dominican President and the highest level government officials have their offices.

To end the day, you will have some time to visit a spacious gift shop selling nearly every Dominican keepsake imaginable. With this city tour to Santo Domingo, you'll experience the city's rich history and the daily life of everyday Dominicans in their capital of 3 million inhabitants.

    What should have been an 8 hour tour, ended up being a 13 hour tour! Not organized at all what so ever! Instead of spending most of our time in beautiful Santo Domingo, we spent it on the bus! We were picked up in a small van at 7AM. From there, we were taken to a meeting point where we would then board another van/bus. We waited at this destination about 1 ½ hours. Several unnecessary stops were made on our way to Santo Domingo. Santo Domingo was nice, very prettyGreat HistoryOur lunch was good too The trip back to our hotel was a nightmare The bus dropped off every passenger at their hotel. It took an additional 2-3 hours to drop everyone off. I would NOT book this tour again.
