The walk from the cruise ship was really far, sad the cruise lines cannot share some space with the local companies, but totally worth it. We met David when we arrived at the spot. He was very nice and professional. We jumped in the van and took off with Lewis driving, very safe driver! Our ship was late so our time was....a bit limited. We arrived at the waterfall spot and David was just awesome with instructions to keep us safe and on-time. I had read some reviews and thought I would be ok...but woah! It is hard work to get to the spot. I was a lot slower then the rest of the group so David suggested....since I was having a hard time, I go to the bottom pool and wait for the group. I agreed because let me tell you.....a lot of steps on an up incline then a lot more......Carlo took my hand and guided me down some more trails to the bottom pool. It was up and down, rocks and dirt, limbs and roots......I felt so safe with Carlo and another youngster, Jorge. Together they both safely delivered me to the pool and then Carlo went above and beyond and guided me back when the whole group was finished. Kudos to the men! Then we had a beautifully prepared lunch with ....rum and coke!! The food was so authentic to Dominion Republic. Everyone at the waterfall staging area was very nice. I am going to strengthen myself up and do it next time. If you plan on this event, seriously WALK now and get yourself ready. My husband and friends we sailed with had an awesome time going down the falls....

We booked thru Viator but the excursion was done by Iguana Mama. Their guide, Bright, was friendly, personable and all around great. The excursion it’s self was a very unique experience and we would definitely do it again.

The tour guides were awesome so much fun and very helpful. My husband and my best friends hubby had a blast they enjoyed all of it. Us wives on the other hand not so much. There was only two water slides super fun but I was expecting all the jumps to have slides and that's not the case. I'm very scared of heights and all the jumps were high with the highest at 25 FT.. You can walk down ladders but even those were scary but the guides were helpful and there for us to walk down. So note to self if you have a fear of heights this one might not be for you.

If I could rate this excursion with 10 Stars I would. Raul/Bright were our guides and we could not have been more pleased. We opted for the photography so Cesar was our own paparazzi! To say that these gentlemen looked out for us is a gross understatement. They helped us every step of the way. The hike up was a bit more than I was prepared for. I was the slow one of the bunch. They helped me up and told me to rest when I needed. Everyone in our group was extremely supportive. Once at the top we started our jumps or slides down. My water shoes fell apart at the seams, literally! I was thankful that it happen on the decent thinking that I would be able to make it down with this situation being unobserved. WRONG. One of our guides noticed and asked what size shoe I wore. Then Cesar gave me the shoes off his feet. OFF HIS FEET PEOPLE! He went the rest of the way down in his socks so that I would have foot protection. The caring staff and outstanding service given was absolutely amazing. We could not have asked for more. The trip down was awesome and the lunch provided was very tasty! We arrived back at our ship in plenty of time without issues I would not book with anyone else. We chose the 27 falls and found out while there that if we had booked through the ship, we would have only been taken as high as the 7th fall. We would have missed out on so much. I can't recommend this group enough! Would use them again and again.

We decided to book with you guys instead of Carnival mainly because of price, but after it was over I would have booked with you guys anyway. GREAT service by your staff and our guide was Robert who was awesome! It was a once in a lifetime adventure that I will never forget. If I ever come back to this port again I would do this tour with you guys over and over.

What a fantastic excursion! We absolutely loved it! The entire staff was phenomenal; the whole day went off without a hitch, from the pick up an hour after the boat docked to the dropping back off an hour before sail time. HIGHLY recommend!!

Yes.... need to be in shape for the hike, need to jump in the pools straight as a pencil or bruises on the bum-flop but worth the experience, Raul and the other two gentlemen great support and informative about Dominican Republic , and the food was great!
