We had an absolutely wonderful time. It was so much fun to be driving all throughout the Dominican Republic countryside. We stopped at this incredibly beautiful hotel minutes from the beach, in the middle of nowhere and had a great Dominican lunch. We got totally covered in mud on the way. We loved that it went to not touristy areas. We got to see Dominican life and how beautiful the country is. Would totally do another tour with the tour group.
Charlie was great and the tour was easily the most fun tour I've done in a long time! Given we've been marooned on our resort until this trip, it gives a good perspective of what the DR is really like. If you take one thing away from this review, it's that you should not bring clothes you care about. You WILL get mud everywhere and it's unavoidable now matter how good a driver you think you might be. Even though it's mentioned in the tour info, be sure someone in your group is comfortable with driving a manual transmission...my buggy had a fussy tranny as it gave me a fair bit of trouble downshifting and I've been driving stick daily for 15 years. Charlie instructed his guy to check it out as soon as we got back, but I was stuck with it for the 100 miles. There are very reasonably priced photos available for purchase after the trip that get burned to CD I just need to find a DVD drive somewhere now.
totally amazing although it was just me and the tour guild I found it fun and informative and although it rained for the first 2hr I still had so much fun and it was the best trip I had that holiday and I would recommend it to anyone.
Great adventure and lots of fun. Great way to see the countryside.
This was an EXCELLENT excursion! This was by far the best handled excursion we took the entire week, from beginning to end. This family owned business took care of everything! Transporttion, lunch, horsback riding....it all went extremely smooth! What a great excursion, this on is a must do!
The best excursion ever! I would reccomend this to everyone! You will get really dirty (duh riding an open buggy) but worth every minute! Guides were fun and so informative. They showed us more than I ever expected; the real culture of DR. This is a must do if you are planning a trip! Thank you!!!
This is a must do tour. lots to see throughout the island and very educational.
This trip was so great Charlie was a wonderful guide and he took us and showed us how Dominicans really live. You dont see this on your resort. You get muddy and dirty but I LOVED it We went in late Jan 2015 We had lot to eat and at Hotel La Cueva was great. It was in the middle of nowhere amazing. We were able to swim in the ocean, horseback rideshort drank coconut water in ate coconut Charlie took a bunch of pictures and videos at the end of tour asked if we wanted them we would pay 20, no pressure. I took them even though I had my own camera and am I ever glad Charlie took some great pics. Would recommend this tour to everyone.
We all had a super time.
Charlie is a great host and guide, made the trip very enjoyable.
Don't miss out on this experience of a lifetime...
If you don't know how to drive a standard VW don't drive, just be a passenger.
the views are fantastic.
We did the full day Dune buggy adventure with Charlie and his crew back in 2012. Loved it so much we came back in July 2014 and brought my 8 year old son. You learn so much about the culture and see the way of life there. Love the countryside that we saw and the stop off and great food at Lemon Lagoon. Definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Punta Cana. Only dislike has nothing to do with the trip but how much the industrial roads have grown out in the countryside.
