We are absolutely thrilled. We travel a lot and this was by far the best and most beautiful tour we have ever done. The tour is worth every penny. The guides (we had Christian) an absolute dream. You feel very well cared for right from the start. The entire team makes sure that everything fits and responds very individually to the wishes of the guests. We had never experienced such hospitality. The whole thing is accompanied by a photographer (we had Manuel) - also amazing. You can decide afterwards whether you want the photos or not. Honestly, we paid about $40 for all photos (120 pieces). That's more than fair - we also gave more because Manuel tried very hard and conjured up really great photos! The individual locations that are approached are amazing! You can collect such great impressions. We can only recommend - do the tour!

The best organized trip we've been on! Our guide Christian was wonderful, gave us interesting stories all the time (in English and French although only 2 people spoke French!) and made sure we had a good time. For lunch there was a choice of several local dishes, each tasty, there was even a vegetarian dish (pasta with tomato sauce). Snacks, beverages and drinks were provided during sunbathing. Great views and company! If we were in Bayahibe longer, we would definitely go on more trips from the office's offer. Saona is a must have! I recommend to everyone!!!

A great day at the Hacienda. A very well organized park. The activities were short but very good, especially the zip lines, it was unheard of. It was awesome. The horseback ride was great for beginners and the buggy top we went through the mud we got really dirty it was very funny and the river was beautiful. A good excursions because we do a lot of activities during the day. I recommend this park even if it is a bit far on the way

A really top-notch team, from the boss to the guides, including the crew and the photographer... Trilingual starting in English Spanish and French. A small group excursion, far from crowded boats like canned sardines. Two very nice snorkeling stops, a meal on a beautiful beach and a return trip along the coast to the mouth of the Savona river. A day of pure happiness!!!

A must do all great fun for the price one of the best activities in punta cana safe..!
