Despite not usually enjoying this type of activity it was actually quite pleasant and we got to see a lot of the city in a very short space of time. Would recommend doing early so you get your bearings around the city. One of the street dogs followed us enthusiastically the whole way round and the locals seem pleased to... More

Enjoy the old fashioned chu-chu you enjoy in so many parks in the U.S. while touring Colonial Santo Domingo. The cost is nominal and drivers thoroughly versed on the history and points of interest. Enjoy!

A relaxing way to view the historic colonial zone in Santo Domingo. At just 500 RD, it was really inexpensive... Too bad I don't understand a word of Spanish... will have to ride it again with a translator guide next time.

We enjoyed our first ride so much we took the train again later the same day in the evening. Getting even more info on the history than what we'd read before coming was beneficial. Somehow it was just plain fun to ride around and wave and even be waved to. We found the train great for seeing things from a... More

If I don't like something usually don't write a review because others may like something I don't. Only disappointment in the four days we visited Santo Domingo. It is advertised as a 35 to 45 minute tour of the old Colonial City. More like 20 minutes to 22 minutes at best. At 500 pesos $11 USD way over priced. Would... More

This train starts from the Park Colon and goes all over the Colonial Zone. It was comfortable, and the recorded program was very easy to understand and informative. My husband and I like to research where we are going before we arrived, but were pleasantly surprised to learn things that none of the online or travel books mentioned! Very reasonable... More

I consider it is too much for what they really offer.. And, doesn't have a really good translator to support the trip. I'm from here DR.
