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.
It is a long day and somewhat tedious getting people on and off the truck - but I think it is a must if you have the time. Our guide was great and I learned a lot about the area and the people.

Other than we were booked for a Tuesday and didn't take the trip until Thursday, the experience was very worthwhile. We only found out about the change when we called to confirm our pickup time. The guide and driver were excellent. The information was very interesting and well presented. I would recommend this trip.
