Let me personally introduce you to the ways of the local culture that exists here on the east end of the island. 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!

We couldn't wait to go on this trip again with Mike, visit the school and see what has changed since last year - it was again well worth the trip. Macao Beach was fantastic as usual and Mama's restaurant superb! Although we'd been on this same tour last year we were not disappointed at all and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as... More

We went on the Munchies in Macao tour a week ago. Pat was our host for the day. The Tour of the school and the interaction with thee locals was very appreciated. Remember to bring school supplies to leakage with them. Enjoyed the chocolate,cigar, and rum stop too. The lunch at Macao was both authentic and delicious. A great day.... More

Mike or Pat are both Canadians living in Punta Cana, and they are very pleasant to talk to. The highlight of my trip was their excursion, especially the school. Would definitely recommend it.

I am so grateful that we decided to take one of Punta Cana Mike's tours!! We were fortunate to have Pat as our guide. He really is an incredibly wonderful man (and no, this isn't his mother writing the review). He himself was very interesting and personable. His warmth, pride and compassion came shining through - I'm sure it must... More

This review is long overdo. My wife and I were celebrating our honeymoon in Punta Cana and wanted to make sure to see more than the beaches and resort. Mike was a perfect host to show us what we wanted. He arrived promptly and even though the (4) others that had booked the same tour cancelled that day, he was... More

We took the Munchies In Macao tour with Mike on March 5, 2015. It was perfect, just 6 of us, Mike and his driver. First he took us to the bario where the school is located. Told us to walk around and not be afraid of the people as they like very much to butt knuckles, high five's or hugs.... More
