Nice excursion, well priced. Very knowledgeable guide. We had a ball.
This tour was amazing the clear water lagoon was one of the best parts.
We had 6 people in our family that did this excursion. Absolutely loved it. The buggy ride was fun and exciting and the beach and natural lagoon were both gorgeous! We would all do this again. Loved our guide as well.
this was amazing stoping at the beach where they filmed some of the pirates of the carribean was beautiful
More time at the beach and lagoon would be great. ANY cultural information would be nice. the description said we would learn why the lagoons are called "eyes" never did. the tour guides were more concerned about selling $5 bandana's (that you don't need) and $35 picture cd's, don't say yes rightaway the price will come down to $20. The driver who picked us up at the hotel didn't speak English he walked up to us and pointed at the voucher. the bellhop came over to interpret. the drive pull over at a shopping center made a phone call, 15 minutes later two teenage girls get out of a car get on our bus (without vouchers) sat up front. Once we were at the tour the girls stayed on the bus and left with the driver.
Comparing this tour to others we have done, even those in Punta Cana and Cap Cana, this tour was lacking. We drove around a trail to a temporarily-closed resort and had 10 minutes to swim at the beach. We then drove to a lagoon at the Indigenous Eyes Park and had 15 minutes to swim in the lagoon. We have done tours that were a lot more fun and incorporated more of the landscape and culture of the Dominican Republic. Although, driving the 4x4s was ok, I would not recommend this tour to others, especially those who have done other tours. In addition, we made a reservation for a Thursday tour only to be told that there were no Thursday tours. Viator needs to coordinate a little better with the companies they book for, in my opinion. We ended up doing a Friday afternoon tour, which got us back so late due to problems on the tour, that we didn't get to dinner until 9 pm. Also, keep in mind the photo of this tour on Viator is a dune buggy, not a 4x4. The 4x4s look like mini jeeps with a flatbed back for your stuff. Bring a bandana if you chose to do this tour, or pay $5 for one when you are there. It is very dusty during dry season.
the tour was nothing like the the description, the off roading was more like a potholed drive way and was not in the indigenus eyes park walked a trail to the lagoon in the park guides offered no description of what we where seeing. Playa blanca beach we went to on a bus. I was told to call the tour company the day before to confirm hotel pickup cell company charges a dollar a minute to use cell phone international call and i dont drink soft drinks (advertised to be offered) but didnt see any or offered
