This was the best excursion we took BY FAR. Kenny was awesome and made sure everyone had a great time. This excursion was a great way to see how the local people live and get a chance to sample the local crops and cuisine. We passed several other safari trucks during the day and none of them seemed to be having as much fun as our truck was. Make sure you ask for "Uncle Kenny"!

We really enjoyed this tour. Luis, Victor and Jay really enjoyed their jobs which made everyone feel comfortable. It was an all day tour which included a lot of history, met local people, got to taste samples and the lunch was good.
We would recommend this tour but wear sneakers, sunscreen, bug spray plus the ride is bumpy.

Great tour. Very enlightening as well and entertaining. Great Guide - Alex. In the description of the tour
it would be nice to really elaborate on the donations for the village. Enjoyed lunch and especially the hammocks afterwards.

the tour was well worth it. The guide was great. The only thing you should know is that it is a bumpy ride. The roads are not paved.

A good tour which gives a good overview of local domenican life. The visit to the plantation was very informative and great products to take home at local prices. Be warned a bit of pressure to buy throughout, beach beautiful and boogie boarding lots of fun. Much recommended x

Our trip began by getting picked up at our resort which was very nice. Kenny, our guide, greeted us and announced to everyone on the safari that we were going to be like family for that day. So "Uncle Kenny" started in with the stories, information, and fun! We were so fortunate to get to drop some things off at a school. The classroom was very crowded, but they are building a new school right next door and it's much larger! A stop at a local family home showed us their kitchen, bedrooms, living areas, and we chatted with Thomas, the 83 year old patriarch. When we got out next we got to see sugar cane, vanilla, coffee, cocoa, and pineapples being grown! We were given samples of most of them. Great! We saw how to roll a cigar and some people tried them. They were flavored! We saw rice fields on our way to the ranch where we had lunch. Lunch was amazing!! The food was delicious! Kenny kept us laughing and singing together. We had the privilege to stop at a beach to swim and walk in the beautiful sand. Julio was our driver and he did a wonderful job driving those roads, but it was a very bumpy ride. We were given water to stay hydrated, which we appreciated! Also, they had some rum they mixed with Sprite or Pepsi, and shared this several times throughout the trip. This trip really opened our eyes as to how the people in the DR live. Kenny and Julio were so gracious to assist us getting in and out of the truck. We just can only say good things about the Dominican Republic Mega Truck Safari. Hope you get Kenny and Julio when you go!

I will start by saying that this is a GREAT tour for anyone who doesn’t mind the outdoors and wants to see and learn more about the beautiful country and culture of the DR. Just be prepared for a LONG day full of activities and a VERY bumpy ride. We got to see the school (kids were on summer break), a traditional home, the processing of coffee, etc., horseback riding and swimming at the beach, so don’t forget your swim suits as we did. However, in spite of all that we stayed on the bus where the bus driver kept the beer and rum flowing. This is also where you are going to find the BETTER DEALS on any items (coffee, vanilla, etc.) you may want to bring home. Just be sure to sample it before you buy. Our tour guide Alex was GREAT! Very informative and made sure that everyone was taken care of. While I highly recommend this tour I will say that we had HORRIBLE customer service upon scheduling our pick-up when we arrived thru Nexxus tours. They scheduled p/u at the wrong hotel, blamed the mix up on us and made us take a cab to catch the bus at the next p/u without compensation. If it wasn’t for Alex scheduling the pick-ups for the rest of our excursions (which is not in his job description) I’m not sure we would have been picked up for the rest of our tours.
