From the barrios, cities and countryside, you will experience firsthand in an informal and personal manner, what makes the region what it is. Small group size ensures that you will not just be another number on the tour. Encounters are with real people going about their lives as they do every day. All tours are conducted in comfortable air conditioned vehicles and narrated in native English.I look forward to showing you the Dominican Republic I have come to know! « less

When Mike picks you up in his A/C van from your resort and tells you he's going to take you from luxury to poverty back to luxury and end up back to the basics, he's telling the truth! The group size is perfect -- 6 of us and Mike. Mike knows so much about the country, the people and just... More

My wife and I did this whole trip on the fly. We were told about Mike and emailed last minute, like a week prior. Mike got us in on a tour our first whole day. It was a very informative trip and fun. Mike is a real down to earth guy. We were in a small group and was able... More

I make a lovely excursion which I have booked with Trend Reisen GmbH. This excusion was REALLY GREAT. The Name of the tour guide was Norbert. We only was a small Group. Norbert explained all very well: We have visited a farm, a really nice beach, then we went eating in a small but really phantasic Restaurant on the road,... More

Me and my wife were picked up in an air conditioned van (something you normally don't get, since the bigger tour operators use the open-back trucks). We were taken to a school (highlight of the trip for me), chocolate, tobacco, and rum factory, and Macao beach. What was interesting to me in their tobacco, chocolate, and run showrooms you get...

Spending the day in Dominican Republic with the locals through this man's eyes is humbling. When he says he is taking you into the heart of the community, he means it. Picked up at the hotel in an A/C van I believe there was 10 of us. Mike has a way with stories that brings you into the present from... More

I corresponded with Mike prior to the excursion and understood that the school had a need for backpacks so we did a "backpack drive" and were able to bring over 50 backpacks with us to donate. It was wonderful to bring them to the school and learn about what Mike is helping to do there in this very impoverished area... More

After reading all these reviews for this tour. You may wonder why should another one be positive? Simple it is a wonderful and easy trip to see the countryside and learn about the culture. Bottom line is would I take another tour with Mike? Yes. I already am looking at doing another one in 2015. Thank you Mike for the... More

This was a really interesting and fun tour. Mike is great and the places we visited all were very interesting. Loved the small group concept over large groups. Highly recommended!!

This was a great getaway from the resort. Reservations were easy, ontime for pickup, drop off, did everything that was stated on line and paid at the end. Everyone enjoyed their time at school and we gave school supplies. School was in session with few kids, so we saw them in their enivironment. The Maceo beach was awesome and great... More

The Munchies in Macao tour was great! Our family (my husband & 3 children -15, 13 and 10) had a poll at the end of our 7 day vacation. Hands down, all 5 of us said that this tour was the best part of our trip - primarily meeting the kids and Magdalena at the school & the beach trip... More
