On a very hot day, this was a perfect way to quickly see the historical sites in the Colonial Zona. Information guide was pre-recorded in English and gave good information. Price was decent and fair.

My husband and I took the Chu Chu Colonial during our stay in the La Zona and this was one of our best investments in the area. The tour guide was extremely fun and informative. This took us through the beautiful Zona Colonial and were please to learn all of the rich and deep history of Old Santo Domingo!

Been on this today very bumpy bit well worth the $12. 45 min ride takes you through all the colonial zone showing important streets and buildings which were very beautiful. Good fun and plenty to see

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.

I must say I was a little excited to go on the chu chu train and forced my husband to along with me on the ride. To be honest this ride is actually silly.
