First off, the day is extremely long, you will be past exhaustion by the time you get back, but in my opinion, it’s worth it. Transportation round trip is included, which for us, was a 40 minute car ride. “breakfast” they give is a sandwhich with half a piece of cheese and half a piece of bologna so eat before! The boat ride, at least on the day that we went, was very very very rocky.prepare if you get seasick.The tour guide does not talk the entire trip so it’s not educational in that way. It was the end of whale season, so it took a while to see any whales, but the guides do a great job chasing them. We were 50 feet away from them breaching and it was the coolest experience of my life.Then we stopped at Cayo Levantado, which is okay,you only get an hour to stay there, which in my opinion is enough. The horseback riding is cool, but the horses look like they work way too hard. It is very steep and muddy, you will get dirty. It is almost scary. The waterfall is stunning. Great value!!

Very well organized, great guide (Joelle), beautiful experiences, great moments and breathtaking views. Highly recommended. The lunch was delicious! We were provided with drinks throughout the day. Joelle told us a lot about the culture, life there and the history of the country. It was very interesting, he tried very hard! Thank you for the great day! ;)

Very interesting tour that offers good insights into the hinterland of the Dominican Republic. Each of the activities had its own appeal. The guide gave varied information about the country and its people during the bus ride. He also went into more difficult questions in detail.

We had such a fun day. Westin was so lovely & lunch was delicious. Very comfortable bus & the truck ride to the mountain top was just a hilarious roller coaster. We paid for the Zipline & got numerous pics from the photographer who had several ideas for crazy pics

It was a very successful day! Even though we don't speak German, the guide still made the effort to speak English to us. Every step of this day is so well organized! great experience!
