This was a tour with varied experiences. We loved just driving through the countryside and getting an idea of the real Dominican. The bus was fairly comfortable but it was difficult to take pictures through the tinted windows. We enjoyed the the various stops but far too much emphasis was placed on shopping rather than really exploring the couple of small museums we saw. We felt rushed to get to the next market. The river cruise was lovely once it stopped raining.
