Comprehensive Tour

A terrific comprehensive tour. Guide Sammy was a delight with his humor and insight into Domincan culture. Glad we got off the beaten track to see the countryside.

Fantastic Tour

This was a fantastic tour of the countryside and really gives you a look at the day-to-day life of people in the Dominican Republic. The day starts with a drive through the countryside to a home where you can see how cocoa and coffee beans are hand roasted and processed. It then moves to a demonstration of how cigars are hand rolled then a really, really good buffet lunch.

The tour then goes to a farm where you go on a 20 minute horseback ride and concludes with stop at Macau Beach. We really enjoyed the tour and our tour guide, Mimi. The buffet lunch was delicious and was the best meal we had in the Dominican Republic! If you're staying at an all-inclusive resort they will pick you up at your hotel. We would highly recommend this tour to get a real taste of the Dominican.

Excellent Guide

We enjoyed our tour with Bavaro Runners. Our guide Alex was very good! He told us a lot of history and information about the DR and did it in a funny and entertaining manner. We were impressed with the different languages he could speak! The driver was also really nice but I'm sorry I can't remember his name. We liked seeing the countryside and getting a taste of the local culture.

The lunch on top of the mountain was plentiful and delicious! The visit to the lady's house to see the coffee, chocolate, etc. was also interesting. We were kind of disappointed with the last thing on the tour, the beach visit. The surf was too strong and cold to get in the water. We tried to take a walk on the beach but people kept hassling us to buy things.
