We really enjoyed the excursion, and especially the EXCELLENT experience with Giovanni (the guide) and Peco (the driver). They are both very kind, intelligent people who know the area, DR history, and have interests in both. Everything was at our pace, nothing rushed, and everything just great along the way--and the same for the lunch we had at the beach. And this part of the DR was truly fascinating, with many different eco-spheres along the road, mnay little villages and roadside towns, etc.

Yovanny, the guide, and the driver (I forget his name) were wonderful. Yovanny clearly knows a lot about the history and environment of the region, was courteous and kind, and brought delicious food for us too each for lunch on the beach. Just perfect.

The tour guides picked us up on time and were very friendly and informative. They did everything they could to make us comfortable and I would definitely recommend booking with them.
