What people are saying about Punta Cana
The tour guide really made our tour something special. We learned so much about the area, its history, its products and exports, even its health care system. Everyone had a great time, from the youngest on up. An information rich tour like this can be tedious for young kids but this one wasn’t. Plenty to do, plenty to look at, even plenty to touch, not to mention taste. It would have been nice to be able to meet the school kids, but I’m sure that would have been disruptive. We loved being able to buy very local vanilla and cocoa and coffee from the family who produced it. Highly recommended!
Just don't forget to check your #whatsup when you land at the airport - you will get the photo of the person who will meet you.
Our whole family loved this wonderful meeting with the lovely small monkeys. The excursion was very good, our children still talk about the sweet monkeys...It was obvious that the people working with them cared for them, we had good instructions about being calm and respectful to them. The monkeys lived in a beautiful environment and seemed to be able to live an almost wild life, I appreciated that. Apart from the visit to the monkeys we had another visit where we learned about chocolate, coffee and sugar amd had some nice tasting opportunities. Our guide Manuel was also great and we felt safe in the traffic by driver Andres. Thanks for a wonderful day!!
The tour was great perfect for a couple. The flight was beautiful and the scenery was extraordinary. When we landed on the beautiful Saona island we were greeted with a buffet lunch and drinks and spent some time on the beach. Everything was tasty and fresh. I would do it again in a heart beat!
The communication by email was prompt. Very good car, with professional driver who drove without asking indiscreet questions. A big thank you!
