I got airport transfers booked with this company via bookit.com. Considering it was $29 RT from Puerto Plata to the resort per person and I'd read that taxis charge $25 one way, I thought it a good deal. Very smooth incoming ride, they didn't try to cram the van full of people, causing a delay, which I appreciated. The outgoing... More

We had no issues with our transportation to and from the airport. It was comfortable and air conditioned. We purchased our shuttle service round trip when we booked our trip. So it was paid in full. However, we were told we had to be in the lobby at 9am the first morning of our honeymoon to get our voucher in... More

My family visited the Dominican Republic for a tropical getaway and booked with VIP for our airport pick up and return travel. We had to search through the Airport to even find our VIP pickup. We were loaded onto a large bus and headed off. It would have been nice to know ahead of time that the first hour of... More

We booked round trip airport transportation through BookIt for our recent trip to the Dominican Republic. While we don't have any complaints about the transportation to the resort, the return trip was a nightmare. We decided to meet with out representative Sarol early on the day of our return trip, and were informed that we would be leaving about 45... More

This service is excellent from beginning to end once at the airport we were promptly whisked off to our van. There were quite a few couples to be dropped off at various resorts but that gave us the opportunity to see the other resorts ( we think ours, excellence was best!). We attended our meeting at 10 with VIP and... More

While the gentleman who met us after we picked up our luggage was a little clueless, the lady at the counter was excellent. Highly recommend attending the meeting with your representative at your hotel. Ours was Juan Carlos who was excellent and addressed any and every issue we experienced. The largest was a tour we booked before our arrival that... More

We used this company to provide transportation to Monkey Jungle. Nyguen our VIP tour rep told us this tour wouldn't happen b/c he didn't have enough interested parties. He also told us he'd work hard to recruit more people to make the tour happen. He found enough people that we were able to go to Monkey Jungle! Made our vacation!... More

Was booked by our travel agent through US airways and was the the worst part of our vacation - a bad first and last impression of the Dominican Republic for us. Had to hunt down the people when we got to the airport - stuck us in a HOT sweaty van for 30 minutes with no AC until other families... More
