Great day trip. A bit of confusion for our pickup as we stayed at a condo instead of the hotels but they made up for it and made sure we were picked up by a private driver that got us caught up to the bus for the excursion. They were great. Snorkeling was good, beach was good and food was YUMMY! They did a great job and the photos they took were wonderful. Worth it.

OMG...THIS WAS THE BEST DAY TRIP I HAVE EVER BEEN ON. Kathy, Jose and the entire staff of HorsePlay was absolutely AMAZING. The first stop cigar making, horseback riding, lunch, zip lining, coffee and chocolate making then more horse riding. We also danced and danced and had a really GREAT DAY......

Mark was the ultimate guide...fun and informative. My family of four enjoyed the trip tremendously. Bring bandanas and be prepared for mud as well. The buggies are fast, fun and challenging to drive over the various terrain. Small groups. We had 3 buggies on our half day trip.

Enjoy! Best by far.

This trip was AWESOME! The guys were great! The information was endless. My 77 year old mother went with us and the guys were so polite and solicitous. If you want a day trip to learn all about Dominican Republic that includes most of the activities to be done in one day, this is it! It has going to the Mountains, learning about the land, people, fruits, plants, animals, culture, products: coffee, cocoa, honey, vanilla riding a horse for a short romp and a Zipline that is safe and certified, this is the trip for you! 5 Stars are not enough for these guys. I count them as friends now. Thank you!

One of the most beautiful places on earth. I could have stayed on the island all day. In fact, I wish the stay on the island was longer, I could have done without going to the blue lagoon and spent more time on Saona Island. I would recommend this trip to anyone going to Punta Cana. I was so pleased and happy with the day trip.

My husband and I are a young couple, but we love to hike so we decided to book this day trip. At first based on the name we didn't expect this trip to be so amazingly adventurous! our tour guides was Gary and Hendrickson, they were absolutely fabulous!! They ensured everyone was safe and they guided the hike with such enthusiasm. they loved it and we loved it. It is quite a long ride to the ranch but you get a very good idea and scene of how some of the Dominican people live. This day trip is very adventurous but they will provide you with gear. Bring mosquito repellant for sure. This trip was well worth the buck! We will definitely come back again!

What an incredible time. Buggies very easy to drive and a lot of fun with the open air. The full day trip was well worth it. The staff was friendly and easy to understand. The lunch was the best food we had during our entire stay. Get off the resort and get into a dune buggy for an adventure you will not forget. A great way to see the culture and parts of the island. THANKS SO MUCH!!!

2 Problems Listed- My husband is very hard to please and he enjoyed it. We both did. It's a perfect trip for seniors, children, as well as other age groups.What we did not like was that because we were in a Punta Cana hotel that was furthest from the first stop of the trip we were picked up at 7:30a.m. in the morning. We tried to get an afternoon booking but we were told that did not exist on any day. It was a half day trip and we returned about 2:00p.m.last stop in the afternoon. I'm sure no one would have minded had we returned one hour later.
It was extremely windy and chilly when we left riding on an open truck. I felt very uncomfortable it was a very unpleasant ride. After about 15 minutes I was able to get the attention of the tour guide who pulled down the front plastic covering. This improved the situation but they should have known about the weather conditions and how it affected their passengers.

This day trip was very enjoyable, the staff were very kind. The tour guide was very knowledge, respectful and patient. A lot of walking is done which is fine when you are site seeing in a city you've never been in before. The restaurant we ate at was awesome, the food was great. It was authentic Dominican food. Reason I gave this 4 stars was because of the pickup situation. We were picked up to then get dropped off to the actual bus that was leaving to Santo Domingo, but our drop off location wasn't clear and we had to drive around a bit before we got dropped off to the departing bus. Other than that everything was beautiful.

Great experience. We recommend if you want to know something about the country outside resorts. Professional team, experienced guide - Herman has been speaking in 3 languages en, esp, dutch. Cigar factory with possibility to taste cigars plus coconut and sugar cane. Travel through countryside and through city of Higuey which gives you insight into lives of ordinary people. Cathedral in the city is also great. You will not visit local school in july-august because they have summer holiday. We missed also cocoa and coffee tasting and production - that was only in full day trip. But overall very good trip!

We could have visited more or better places. There were times where we would just idle around. Nonetheless, our guide Jose and the driver worked hard to provide a good day trip for us. Thank you!

Me and girl friends went for a weekend and it was a blast, a day trip away from the hotel. We were picked up from our hotel and picked up by the bus, I forgot the name of our tour guide but he was very informative.They has unlimited booze and music, some dance lesson too at the boat to Saona Island beautifful island very relaxing, had some fresh coconuts cut for us. We relaxed by the water and then we had lunch... sooo yummy.. some real dominican food, i was surprised not see any mangu dishes, other wise the food was good and another thing I was suprised they werent serving dominican beer presidente . Then we took a speed boat to the natural pool and saw some star fish. When they dropped as off to get back to the bus, there were people on the street who were willing to pay our feet to get the sand off for a dollar, that was annoying. We got back to our hotel, exhausted. Me and my girls liked it. Def worth to do for a day.

A fun day trip - although the visit to the shipwreck was pretty useless - you get the same view from shore. Basically it's just an excuse to cruise around and drink rum, which isn't a bad way to spend a day. The snorkeling was pretty rough but that's not their fault.

The Tropical Storm Bavaro Cruise was a great day trip! The staff were very friendly, energetic and fun. The lunch was tastey and the beverages were plentiful. I thought we would have more time to spend relaxing on an island but this is a full day of sailing, besides the time spend snorkeling. Beautiful coastline during the entire day. There were not many fish or exciting pieces of coral to see while snorkeling but it was still fun to swim. Music selection could have been more relaxing on the boat, it was very loud and upbeat the entire day. Would have preferred something like Bob Marley or UB40 in the late afternoon instead of techno. All in all a good excursion for the price.

On the day when our trip was booked,no one came to pick us up although via email and telephone everything was confirmed! On the phone no one apologised but we managed to get on the next day trip which was really nice. But i have to say it was very disappointing the operator attitude on the phone!
