Pablo.....we love learning about the culture of the community we visit. Pablo gaves us not only a sense of the DR, but tried to ensure we understood the essence of the country and its people. HE WAS AMAZING!

We had a great time with Edwin, he was so nice from the start and let us decide if we wanted to go to each stop and how long we wanted to spend there. He spoke English very well, which was helpful to us. This tour allowed us to buy some souvenirs, visit a coffee and cacao plantation, see the smaller villages in more of a country setting and a bigger city where the citadel was located. A nice tour without any time stress on timing.

Excellent excursion

This excursion was well worth the money! Our guide Edwin Perez was amazing! He explained everything to us in detail. He stopped places that weren’t on the itinerary because we wanted to stop there. We had some trouble with the van he was driving and again, he took care of it. He was amazing. If you have the opportunity you really need to book this excursion.

Fantastic Tour

This was one of the best tours we've ever been on! We went to 5 different locations throughout the tour and received such a well rounded cultural background of the Dominican. Needless to say, we also had the best tour guide. Thank you Sylvester for all your insight - you made our excursion so enjoyable!

Most interesting day in eastern Dominican Republic

We were picked up at our resort in a private car by Edwin, who was a great young man. He drove us to a farm where we toured the property and purchased a variety of home grown items. We then went to a tobacco factory and even rolled our own cigars! He then took us to the large city of Higuey. With few traffic laws we were so relieved he was driving and not us. In Higuey Edwin handed us off to Tito. He was a delightful local guy who showed us the cathedral and walked us around part of the downtown area. We had a meal at a nice bar/restaurant and then traveled back to Punta Cana with Edwin. What we thought was going to be a four hour tour took more like six hours. But Edwin was in no hurry to end our tour and neither were we. Most interesting and fun tour!
