Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Dominican Republic Mega Truck Safari. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
If I could give this 100 stars it would not be enough! The safari itself is fantastic, went to some great places, met some great people and had some fantastic experiences; it was a real eye opener. What made it even better - the guide we had; a guy called Gregory. He was my favorite person of the entire holiday and my family all had the same opinion. He speaks god knows how many languages with ease and is full of interesting information. We learnt more about the Dominican in 1 day with him than in the other 14 days together. He is very funny and full of energy - everyone on the trip loved him and were still talking about him and the trip 4 days later!! The trip itself is great but if you go on it you have to go with this guy - he is a legend :-) He should be cloned and one of him should be on every trip there is. Brilliant!!!
Loved it, the guide was great. I would love to take this tour again.
One of the best excursions I've been on in the Caribbean. Our guide, Sammy, was great. Be prepared for a very long day and be sure to bring candy or school supplies for the kids at the school.
My 6 yr old son and I went on this adventure and we had a wonderful time. It was a great experience for the both of us. Be sure to bring plenty of school supplies for the children and teacher.
Monster Truck Safari was very good and a must see. the bus trip was a long trip.
We had a fantastic experience! Thanks to our guide Gregory, he made the whole trip as comfortable and amusing as possible. He was attentive and most of all, knowledgeable. He spoke several languages and knew about the culture of the Dominican Republic. You will see small children all throughout the trip. With those you encounter, MAKE SURE you bring something to give to them for school use, or any other useful and handy household non-perishable materials i.e. pencils, eraser, sharpener, notebook, comb, soap, small hand held towels etc. to distribute here and there. Dress very comfortably as if though you're going hiking- comfortable loose clothes, shoes wgood soles no flip flops, and a hat. Also do bring a compact umbrella in the event of rain. Just be prepared to visit the Haitian Refugees at the latter portion of the tour. If you ignore them and leave your valuables at the hotel room in a safe, then you'll be just fine. You don't need to be flashy for this trip at all. It's a type of trip that everyone must be aware of living in the countryside and bringing your experiences back home to your families. It makes you think differently about life at home and display more appreciation about the way we live. A MUST SEEVISIT! Enjoy!!!
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.
