Communication and collection was easy and correct. Altos de Chavon was unfortunately rushed through - which we were also aware of. We were almost alone for that. On the other hand, we were about 60 people on the catamaran. Nevertheless it was really great, also the swim stop in the sea at the sandbar. We even saw starfish. Then we were about 2.5 hours on Saona and there was something to eat and drink on the boat all the time. We went back by speedboat and on the way back we stopped at a small cafe where you could buy souvenirs but didn't have to. From the organization, price and appearance of the island really recommendable

Great full day trip to Isla Saona

The trip to Saona was great, the staff made the day into a party. The photographers are pricy, but they do a fantastic job. The downside was the trip to Altos de Chavon at the end of the day. It felt extremely rushed and the tour guide only told about some plants and trees instead of the amazing architecture and history at this place. I would rather have spent more time here instead of at the Catamaran, which was nice but took too long. A big thank you to the staff anyway, it was a very nice day!
