Great excursions that last much longer than 4 hours. There is nothing written in the description but we visited a school, a typical house of the Dominican Republic (a real one not redone for tourists) we saw the sugar cane plantations and eat sugar cane , saw the plantations of cocoa, coffee and tobacco. We visited a typical market there. We were really at the heart of the population of the Dominican Republic. The guide Alex was great, he speaks a lot of languages! I really recommend this excursions it is really great we had a great time and we learn a lot about the culture here. We had a great time, thank you very much!

I really enjoyed the experience! My tour guide Alex and Robin were so kind and answered all of my questions. They took us to many different sites. I recommend doing the longer tour as you get to eat a Dominican lunch which was delicious and visit the beach. We even got to try Dominican rum!!! It’s beautiful seeing the real DR countryside which is more authentic than just staying on the resort. They also pick you up and drop you back off at your hotel. If you want to enjoy life outside of the resort, book with these guys.

First of all the communication was super friendly and they rebooked us for a different day when we were sick the first date we agreed on. Amazing Cousinen service. the driving speed could be a bit faster and the stop at Macao beach could have been a bit longer, but overall the tour was a lot of fun and the value for money is really great. The shuttle there and back was also well organized.

We enjoyed the buggies ride , cave swimming and beach. Overall fun. Pros - Ride from the resort was quick, buggies route was fun, coffee-chocolate-mamjuana testing was ok, beach break was good Cons - long wait at the center for other people, things are overpriced and I will recommend not to buy anything there, cave swim time was 15 minutes which is too short to enjoy

Very good, guided on time. There was a professional who spoke French
