Day trip to Santo Domingo
Dec 2021 • Couples
Our guide Dario was very pleasant and also very knowledgeable. The historical sites we saw in the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo were awesome and Dario was very informative of the Dominican culture as he was from the Capital city. Dario also was very conversant in both the French and English language. Great way to spend the day!

Great tour
A great and very well organised tour. You will get enough historical and cultural information, as well as free time to enjoy the city yourself. You will also taste Dominican cuisine.
Our tour guide, Dario, was super professional and fun. He is fluent in English and French. Also best recommendations for the driver Daniel.

What a great day!
Dec 2021 • Couples
Our guide Dario was very knowledgeable and funny. He answered all the questions my wife had regarding the different buildings we viewed and the statues and artwork we saw. Enrique was a great driver too. The ride was smooth and we felt safe the whole way. We'll definitely be back for more adventures.
