Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Just wished we had been told we were going to meet Haiti refugees that the Dominican Republic had helped. They were so desperate for everything and anything and we were not prepared with anything much. A few of the girls so wanted my flip flops, their feet were just thick mud. It was so sad and I could have given plenty if I had known we were meeting them, so I just gave what I could from what I had with me.
The truck ride was awesome. The food was great but very few options. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and very likeable.
This was an interesting tour that gives you an idea of the real Dominican Republic. I highly recommend this one if you wish to go outside the resorts. Our tour guide was excellent. He speaks English, Spanish, and German! And they gave us as much soda, water, and rum and coke as we wanted! But I would not recommend this for the thrillseeker as it is a pretty quiet excursion.
Fabulous day...don't miss this amazing tour while in Punta Cana. Viator is the way to go when booking tours. We stayed at the Moon Palace and they did not offer this tour through the hotel, and what they did offer that was similar was more expensive. Pickup and drop-off at hotel was exactly on time. We saw things we never would have seen had we stayed on the resort for our whole vacation. The lunch could have been better, but that was really the only thing to complain about. Go, you won't regret it!
A great experience and exposure to the country, as well as a friendly tour guide and good food!
What a great tour! We had a blast riding all through the countryside of Punta Cana. It rained some, but still couldn't have been a better day! Thanks!
An excellent, funfilled day - seeing parts of the real Dominican Republic! Our tour guide was very good and shared lots of his knowledge. I would definitely recommend this trip to other people, take lots of pens, pencils, sweets to throw to the local children, and your camera for photographs of the home you are invited to look around.
What a great day out. It couldn't have been any better. We had a fantastic day and saw the real Dominican. Would go back and do this again.
We had a great time the trip was very interesting and educating it opens your eyes to alot of things. Our guide and driver were very friendly and alot of fun.
The tour was excellent, guide and drivers were great. Buffet lunch was provided and then swimming in the river was awesome. Would do it again if I ever go back to Dominican Republic. Would recommend this tour on the Monster Truck very highly. We had a lot of fun.
There is nothing better than getting a real taste of the countryside and city when you go on vacation. It is just a waste of a vacation if you are just going to sit around the resort or hotel and not get around and really find out what your vacation i.e. country has in store for you.
It was awesome. Even though we got rained on a couple times that morning we thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide was the best guide ever!
Great tour! You really get to know how the Dominicans and Haitians live, plus you also learn plenty about the country.
We had a blast. Our tour guide was brill and so funny. This was a full-day excursion, and we were never bored. We visited schools, which were a real eye-opener; we visited a house and family in the mountains and had coffee with them; and we visited a voodoo doctor and sugar cane fields. The list is endless, as were the rum, beer and soft drinks. This is definitely a must-do.
Great tour and I highly recommond it. I suggest bringning school supplies if you can to leave with the Teacher.
Thoroughly enjoyable day out! Guides were amazing and made trip special.
Awesome experience riding in a the jeep. This is an opportunity for you to learn about culture and experience local flavour. This adventure allows you to visit a school, a church, a family house and a ranch. Well worth the trip.
very enjoyable - the guide was very knowledgible and informative. The only disappointment was that we did not get to attend a session where the school was in session nor did we get the opportunity to cut some sugar cane. Besides these two minor disappointments - I would strongly encourage people to take this trip. Be prepared for a long trip.
I had a good time on the Monster Truck Safari. It was informational and interesting. The only event that was the least interesting or entertaining was the visit to a "Voodoo Priest". That could have been omitted.
The country Adventure Safari was a very interesting experience. We got to see part of the Dominican Republic that one normally does ot see while at a beautiful All-inclusive resort. I am not sure that what we actually saw was typical Dominican Republic life, but it was interesting none-the-less. I think it would be nice if the tour guide had a microphone and speaker so everyone in the truck could hear the narration. with today's technology, that would not be too hard to accomplish. The tour got long toward the end and almost everyone was happy to get back to the hotel. In any case, it was worthwhile and fun. Try it.
Apart from the weather , this trip is well worth while ,you get an insight into life outside the tourist areas , how the locals and rich and poor live , brings home how lucky we really are , the guides were informative , well worth a day out !!
The guide, Gregory, was very informative and spoke to us in languages we understood, Russian and English. He took time with your questions and was very understanding. We were impressed with his wit and ability to keep you entertained as well as laughing. I rated this 4 stars only because it rained most of the tour and the cover on the truck didn't do a good job. Maybe someone can design a better cover and extend it a little over the sides so the end people don't get a soaking and this would be rated 5 stars. Oh, and the driver and refreshment tender did an excellent job as well.
