Virtually held hostage on the bus. Taken to vendor stores that give kickbacks to the tour company. Rum factory tour a huge waste of time, nothing shown, nothing explained.

Then of course he pretends to buy the ring and... More

Is it informational and educational about Dominican Republic? Definitely. I would recommend this tour to friends who want to be immersed in the local community, even if it is only for the... More

We took the tour and the trolley car to the top of the mountain on Friday, January 16, 2015. Our guide was superb as were all those involved. Thank you to Norbine from Nexus/Signature for helping to make our vacation a wonderful time.
