Well organized tour, worth seeing, historical old town of Santo Domingo, nice restaurant for lunch with different dishes to choose from. Unfortunately, during the walk through the old streets it started to rain heavily. But even there the organizer reacted immediately and got each participant an umbrella. Interesting, recommendable change from beach life.

Nice city but the guide Anthony spoke barely any english. Most of the sights he just did the spanish explanations. He also did some side hussles during the tour like exchanging currency for travelers not in our group. Quite a chaotic experience overall.

The trip was great! It was a bummer not to be able to go to the cathedral for Three Kings Day, but completely understandable. The transportation was seamless and Anthony was a phenomenal tour guide!
