If you want to learn about the culture in the Dominican this is THE tour for you. We absolutely loved getting out and seeing places that were beyond our resort! Andy was a great guide and answered all of our questions. And our driver was amazing -- I still have no idea how he navigated all those hills and steep declines.

The Mega Truck Safari tour was fantastic. The lunch provided was good but not a lot of variety of food choices were offered.

A fascinating, fun and educational day spent traveling through and stopping off at places surrounding the Punta Cana region in an open back truck. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire day and would recommend this trip to anyone. Youll learn about and sample the produce of the region. Everything from roasting coffee and cacao/cocoa, cigars, sugar cane, vanilla, pineapples, bananas, mangos, homemade chocolate and much more! Youll also have a chance to sample the famous mamajuana liquor and maybe some pineapple wine! With options to purchase some locally produced co-op things to take home. The plantation is incredible! It also had wonderfully clean WC facilities.

Youll also learn about the plantation owner, his family and see their prime example of a traditional Dominican house. We also travelled to a lodge high in the rainforest hills for a delicious home cooked Dominican lunch. Then back into the city of Higuey for a guided tour inside the large cathedral there -Basílica Catedral Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia!

For the last stop of the day we went to Macao beach, further west down the coast from Bavaro/Punta Cana. Here we did some body-boarding in the lovely blue surf, boards provided. All in all an amazing day, full of activities, things to see/do, learn about, sample and just take in a more authentic side of this wondrous country, its rich culture and lovely people. The travel duration isnt too much, as the whole day is hop on/off style and theres plenty to see en route. Refreshments, including soft drinks, beer and rum were served throughout the day by the truck driver and guide. This is the second time I have done this trip, it seems seasonally different each time. Last time we also visited a rural school, this time was during schools holidays. I would definitely do this trip again and recommend it to anyone new to, or a returning traveller to this region.
