Nov 2021 • Couples
For anyone who likes to be entertained while learning about the culture and way of life of the local people, this tour was great! Our guide Edy was very fun and informative while making sure to keep everyone together and safe. The driver Ramon was great and navigated the roads as a pro. All in all we had a great time at all the stops and the family meal provided at lunch was delicious! I will definitely recommend this trip to anyone coming here.

Well worth the time even if slightly contrived
You can expect to learn about cacao, coffee, sugar cane and tobacco on this tour. Granted that you will only see exhibits rather than any actual farms and there will be a “store” at each stop it was still interesting. The vehicle may have no springs and the roads may be rough but you are in rather isolated mountainous country so luxury should not be expected. Lunch was simple but tasty. The trip to the cathedral at Higuey was not really worth the time unless you are Catholic. Our guide - Kevin? - was thoroughly professional and encouraged questions. Glad I went.

We had a fantastic time. Angel was the best! Lunch was amazing and we saw and learned so much about the country and inhabitants. It was a great day with some shopping opportunities. This company supports local schools, so that is a bonus. We booked at the hotel and paid more than the price listed on TripAdvisor. Should have booked here!

Best Tour!
Jul 2021
My entore family of 5 enjoyed this excursion. Our guide Angel was OUTSTANDING! He was so full of knowledge and energy.

We tasted sugar cane, watched cigars being rolled, visited a traditional home and ate the BEST food that we had on our entire vacation. I would recommend anyon that wantd to learn about the country go on this tour and ask for Angel.

Our guide, Nacho, was wonderful. He has a great sense of humor and really made the day fun for everyone. We visited two farms and had a typical Dominican meal in the country. The entire day was interesting and fun.

Started good but turned bad
Mar 2021 • Family
They only want your money. We had to split our group because of age. Grandma and Grandpa was taking the youngest back to the resort after the monkey land adventure. We prearranged this before we purchased. We were told no problem we will arrange that. They made us wait for the second group for the bus. The fun we had got used up keeping a 3 year old busy for 1.5 hours. If everyone is participating in all the adventures planned then does not look bad. If not, it's very frustrating trying to make arrangements with no assistance.
