What people are saying about Punta Cana

This was the complete package. We had previously booked two trips using a local vendor. We found the transfers took most of the day, changing buses at various meeting points with no real guidance. At one point we had to get off one bus and onto an other on a highway interchange where the drivers took our photographs for reference! Very disconcerting. Rest assured booking your trip with Get Your Guide is haste free and worry free, our local contact called in advance to tell us the pick up point and time and that was it, onwards to our destination! What a destination! Catamaran cruise to a beautiful picturesque beach. Stopping for a swim on a sand bar, awesome lunch, plenty free booze. Everything taken care of by our attentive and informed guide pappi. Great day out and certainly the best trip we had during our stay in paradise.

Given that it was one of the cheapest excursions, I was sceptical as to how good it would be and it turned out to be excellent. Never a dull moment with free drinks and music playing the whole time. The snorkelling was good, there weren’t thousands of fish but there was enough to be entertaining. The staff were lovely and the floating bar was great fun. Would definitely do it again :)

The DR is a geographically small place that is an excellent choice to take an aerial view of. The Robinson line of helicopters is an outstanding line of safe aircraft. The balance between made this excursion a must do.

Amazing experience! Well organized. Plenty of time with the dolphins and you can touch them and swim with/on them. Thought first that photos were over-priced but, actually, they were worth it!
