Great trip!

What a great day! Great communication before the trip, during and after. Great price for a great full day! Bus ride was fine, boat ride was amazing, views and experience was breathtaking. Staff was friendly and helpful with our 5 and 9 year old who have now declared Puerto Plata their favorite place in the world 😉 would book through them again and again! Great for a great trip, full of knowledge, history and for always making us feel safe.

Such a joke.

This excursion was an absolute joke. Let me tell you why.. 1) We rode an an old, beat up bus. The tour guide was stopping on our way to the sand bar, dropping off book bags to random people. We also had to stop for gas. Not sure why that couldn’t be done before they picked us up 2) The drive was super long. 3) The lunch was garbage. Red beans and rice, random fried pieces of chicken, and we had to pay for our own drinks. I understood I had to pay for my own drinks, but we had to pay for water.. seriously? 4) It took ALL day. We left at 7:40 and didn’t make it back until 6 pm. I just talked to some people that waited with us to do the same excursion yesterday. They paid a little more money and got to see THREE islands, lobster for lunch, and rode on a nice boat. I would have so paid extra for those amenities. I want my money back!!!! Wasted in a day In the DR.

We are sorry you had a bad experience. I agree that the bus driver should not stop for gas , that should have been done before. 2) in the description of the tour it says that we drive to Punta Rucia, which is quite a drive depending on where you are staying at. 3) The lunch is a Dominican lunch buffet, most of our clients are very happy with the lunch. Regarding the drinks I sent a message as well that the drinks with the lunch is not included. 4) It has always been a full day tour. We also offer a VIP trip with lobster on Viator. Regarding the THREE islands, that has been a completely different tour, around Monte Cristi there are small islands but around Cayo Arena, Paradise Island there are no other islands.

Incredible experience!

I had a fantastic time on paradise island with my friends. We were picked up in Sosua and were a bit concerned with how long the drive was, at one point we all got a bit car sick. But OH BOY WAS IT WORTH IT. The snorkling is out of this world. We were provided snorkel gear and refreshments on the island. We have a very filling dinner on the way home and made a stop at a local shop. Overall the tour was incredible and I would go back to the DR just to go to paradise island again
