We took the chuchu colonial to know more about the city. It has been amazing. The guide was great and the chuchu is very educative and fun. Time flies even it takes 45 minutes. A must in santo domingo.

We didn't want to be a part of the big groups of tourists so we decided to go on our own and at our pace. The Chu Chu Train was excellent. In the front car there where Spanish speaking people with a Spanish guide and in the second car with us there where french speaking folks in the back with... More

This chu chu train is too short in my opinion but at least they have something for starters. It could be more informative and a little longer than the 15 minutes ride.

Good way to see a couple of the main attractions in the colonial zone. The audio narration was good although this was augmented by a local guide who was mostly unintelligible. For $12 it was an ok way to spend 30min.

The tour last about 45 minutes and it provides very good information of important landmarks in the old city. The employees are very courteous and friendly. The train ride is a bit overpriced but if you are interested in viewing the old city in a short amount of time it is the best way to do it.

We rode the Chu Chu as part of a Santo Domingo Excursion. It was nice to travel the Santo domingo Streets and listen to the guide narrate some important events, land marks etc. After a long day it was fun to just seat and enjoy the trip!
