Great Adventure

A group of us (20) went on the Higuey day trip. This included horse back riding, church cathedral visit, touring a working tobacco and chocolate farm, and finishes with time at the beach. The tour was great. What REALLY made this trip was our tour guide Mimi & driver Angel!! They were just fantastic. They went out of their way to schedule and coordinate time for our group to visit a local school & baseball team so we could donate some items. Which if your going I highly recommend this as your heart will overflow. Mimi is just a blessing as he’s funny, well spoken, and really made the trip!” –Jason H | Nov 2018     Read this review on Trip Advisor
