We watched people drive in Santo Domingo and decided to take this sightseeing tour. The Driver and tour guide were perfect. We were picked up at our hotel, where we joined an other couple. Off we were to see the sights of Santo Domingo. The drives was able to change from german to english without a hitch. The ease of our day was fantastic as the driver handled all the awful drivers while we were in an air condition bus looking and learning about the sites. We enjoyed the three pools, historical areas and the garden, a mall, cigar factory. We spent 9 hours of fun. This was well worth the money and time. The company was great.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2016

The tour company was very nice. pick up was professional and the guide was knowledgeable but my chief complaint is that the tour hardly spent time at the Zona colonia. This is a main attraction of this city and we were given half an hour at this place.
We ended up staying here and refused to take the ride back home and spent a few hours here.
Botanical garden was nice and refreshing. At other points we were given enough time to click pictures and more.
