Saona tour
Orlando_D, May 2023
Very good experience during the tour with Adalberto. He was very good guy and made it an incredible experience.
A highlight of our vacation
Marisa_P, May 2023
My fiancé and I had an amazing time, definitely a highlight of my vacation. Papa Jose was hilarious and attentive, the food was great, and the Island was incredible. The photographers got some great pics at a good price. 10/10!
Good as experience but only once
Cristian_S, May 2023
An average tour. We spent the most of the time travelling instead of staying on the island. We stayed there for like 1.5hours. The staff was very very friendly and helpful.
Fun all Day!
Sonya_R, May 2023
The shuttle bus ride was very informative. Alex told us all about Punta Cana and its diversity. Once we arrived to the beach where we loaded the speed boat, we knew we were in for a treat. Saona Island is a beautiful place and the staff made it a great day trip. The food was excellent and the drinks were just right. I would have loved to stay there all day. I would recommend this excursion to anyone. It’s a great way to spend the day away from the resorts.
Excellent service.
Abdul_M, May 2023
Best experience ever. Alex was amazing tour guide. He stayed with us and kept eye on everyone single of us and warmed us about all scammers around. He ensured everyone’s safety.
Overall best experience
Rishabh_S, May 2023
It was great trip. Guide Benjamin was very knowledgeable and entertaining. As a vegetarian, they provided nice food options also. I would highway recommend to book this tour if you are visiting Dominican Republic.
Waster of time and money!
Evgheni_B, May 2023
There was only 2 hours on the beach out of 12 hrs excursion! That is crazy! And NOTHING for kids! Literally nothing! No juice no cookies nothing!!! In description it was saying that will be open bar on the boat so only Rum and some wired Cola (which is not actually coke) on the beach there were only watermelons as fruits and not much variety of food. (2 types of rice, pasta, chicken and pork.) literally waste of money. If you are at Punta Cana DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! It doesn’t worth it.

Clarissa_M, May 2023
I had a great time on party boat, speedboat and bus .Everyone was nice and the food was good .Papa Jose took good care of us .
Don’t recommend
Alyson_C, May 2023
The most unorganized excursion I have been on. It was 12 hours of my day wasted. The lunch was not good. After spending 3 hours on the beach it took 2 hours on the slowest boat ever to get back to shore. Then when we get back to shore we had to wait 30mins for the bus to pick us up. Then it took us 2 hours to get back to our resort after dropping others off on the side of the road to catch a taxi to “save time”. Also no one understands english
The Island is beautiful...
Itunu_F, May 2023

The whole day was very enjoyable, Christian the tour guide was excellent. The itinerary for the day was very well set out and adhered to.
Awesome experience!
Margarita_G, May 2023
Our guide Alex was very knowledgeable about the history. We were the 1st ones to arrive to the island and to have buffet. He did a great job making sure everyone was good and kept the group together. This experience was great!
KAREN_T, May 2023

The transfers to the Island took for ever, poor organization on the transfers. The island and the lake are beautiful, the tour guide and the staff do a good job. The lunch at the island is below average.

Fun Island, but beware of the trip there and back.
Jared_S, May 2023
The island and the beach was amazing! I've never been to a better beach and the huge waves were phenomenal. The natural swimming pool was also a lot of fun. That's where it went downhill though. The group we were with was very obnoxious. They refused to listen to the guide and only cared about themselves having a good time. Making the ride to the island was miserable. Granted the company cant control the group, but the music was incredibly loud and was more crass then anything I've ever heard in my life. Then coming back instead of returning on the speed boats, we got onto a sail boat. This also had incredibly deafening music and took over 2 hours to get back when everyone was already tired. I get people like to party and have a good time but there should be different options available so you don't have to be "on the party boat" and you can come back when you done at the island.

Fun in the sun!
Daniel_R, May 2023
Second time on this trip. First time 7 years ago. Great time as always. Only thing would like to be in the beach for a longer period of time. Should be at least 2 hours longer. But it's worth the trip.
Richard_H, May 2023
Absolutely terrible time, unless you are/or speak Spanish then you’ll be fine. It got so out of hand because the drinks were flowing to much and no one policed it. One person fell and cracked his head open, others were simulating sex acts in front of children. It was more like a 18-30 club booze cruise than a beautiful cruise to see the Caribbean Sea.

Loved the overall...
Andrea_J, May 2023
Loved the overall experience! Definitely worth booking. Open bar was great! Our tour guide did a really good job making sure no one got lost.
Wear water shoes.
Victor_C, May 2023
The water is nice and clear. The liquor is nice. Strongly recommend to bring in water shoes. Makes it easier when you're hopping around from location to location.
