This was a fun tour through the countryside. It took awhile to get there after stopping to pick up guests in the various hotels, but definitely worth it.
It starts out by seeing the way they make cigars, with the opportunity to do some of it yourself or just smoke a free sample of the wide variety of flavored ones. Then you are mounted on horses and proceed to the ranch.
The horses were sturdy and well behaved... a breed bred especially for their endurance and disposition. The ride was varied and covered a lot of trail and included crossing a small river in a shallow area. Doing the cattle drive at the end was pretty cool.
When you arrive at the ranch, you can zip line a few times and swim in the pool or just relax. They show you a bit of the nature tour with coffee and chocolate samples and how they are processed. You also have music, a home cooked Dominican lunch, and photos preview of the photos they had been taking. This is also where you can leave a tip in the tip box.
After lunch you can go on the cattle drive if you chose that option, and meet the others down the path back to the cigar place. That is where you will leave to go back to your hotel, stopping at a large gift shop on the way.
Overall, I highly recommend this excursion. It was worth the money and lots of fun for all!
Without a doubt this was the best tour. Had a blast riding the horse and seeing the coutryside. Kathy was very nice and informative and I would do this tour again when I come back to Domincan Republic.
This was by far the best tour you can take. Jose and his crew really take care of you. There isnt one negative thing I can say about this tour...It is a reasonable price, and overall is good value and fun. I will recommend this trip, hands down. Gracias Jose!!
You MUST go on this tour! Absolutely fantastic! The staff are all brilliant, fun and friendly! I and #39;ve never ridden a horse and they made me feel at ease, I rode a horse, galloped a little, ate, zip lined and learnt about coca, coffee and mamajuana, tried some and danced too! Would do it all again!
Great tour, the staff were amazing, funny, and personable. We met some amazing people...We'd definitely do this one again!
Great experience!! My boyfriend and I enjoyed this excursion. Very fun
Great Time! Everyone we met was so friendly and helpful, always making sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this excursion.. It is worth every penny and more!

The food was exxcelent the zipline was fun and there ranch is also amazing cigar was fun to learn
We had an incredible day and went back to our resort praising the experience.
One of the best excursions I have been on! I have only been on a horse once in my lifetime over 20 years ago but they have great horses and staff that made the experience so fun and I felt really safe. There was also some flexibility for those who felt more comfortable on horseback where the staff split the group into two. Staff was so friendly too. Would definitely recommend to my friends as something they must do.
Jose is the man! This was the best tour we did on the island! Highly recommended!
This trip was amazing! So much to do between the cigar rolling, cocoa and coffee grinding, zip lining and horseback riding. Jose and his crew were awesome! His wife made a fantastic traditional lunch! Our 6 and 8-year old were able to ride their own horses and zip line too! Absolutely recommend this trip for everyone!
The staff and tour guides were fabulous! Very friendly, professional and made this tour an experience to never forget. Safety is their number one priority. For someone who never ziplined before, I felt completely safe and went up three times!! If you are looking for something fun to do on your trip, I would highly recommend giving this excursion a try!
WE HAD A GREAT TIME! THE CREW WAS VERY HELPFUL AND SAFETY CONSCIOUS. JOSE AND HIS WIFE PUT ON AN AWESOME LUNCH WITH AUTHENTIC FOOD. THE TOUR OF HOW THE COCA AND COFFEE WERE MADE WAS PRETTY COOL AND THE VANILLA BEAN. I WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS. I'M AFRAID OF HEIGHTS BUT I DID IT. :
Excellent day......my whole family really enjoyed both the horse riding and Zipline. Great value for money and all the guides are really do an awesome job of taking care of you. Thanks again!
This tour was the best tour I have ever gone on. Cathy, Jose and the staff were wonderful. The horses are great. You will not be just going in a straight line. It was so much fun.
Everything was wonderful. It was my first time doing the horseback riding and zipline, but I wasn't nervous because the staffs showed the demonstrations. The food was delicious. Learning how to make coffee, cigar and chocolate in the old fashion way it was a good experience that I won't forget. I highly recommend it.
Jose and Kathy made this a wonderful, memorable day for my family! My kids had a great time riding the horses, learning about cocoa and coffee beans and to top it all off, ZIP LINING!! Everyone involved made it a great experience, not to be missed when visiting D.R.
The whole trip was superbly organised , pick up spot on .
My husband had never even got on a horse before , but the staff were so good in reassurance and there all the time by the end he galloped a few times .
The Ziplining was amazing over athe river and through banana plants .
Even got to roll a cigar
all the info from Viator was spot on through Emails .
Many thanks for a great day
Really a great trip. Loved being able to do so many different things in just one day. The staff went out of their way on everything. I would do this excursion again
