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 did the Munchies in Macao tour and loved it! Pat was an EXCELLENT guide and between learning and experiencing the barrio and the school to tasting the rum and chocolates and watching cigar production, we had a fabulous time. Macao Beach is truly beautiful with a freshly caught lunch to top it off. All in all - a great... More

This is a must do tour. We had Pat as a guide and learned SO much about the history of Hispaniola. We were thrilled with the caliber of information we learned about regarding the DR and Haiti. We were amazed. Our only regret was not bringing more to the school. We brought writing supplies and paper, but wish we filled... More

Did this tour for the second time in three years, and again had an awesome day. This year we had Pat for our tour guide, he did not disappoint. He was personable, knowledgeable, took the time to answer all our questions and we never felt rushed. Loved our return visit to the school, can not say enough about the wonderful... More

The reason we travel is to get away and relax, but to also see how other people live in different parts of the world. This tour was simply amazing! Our tour guide was Pat and he was so knowledgeable about the places we visited. This tour is a must do! We brought our 8 yr old son along and he... More

Anyone who goes to DR should get away from the resort and actually see the country you are visiting. We took the Higuey tour. The school children were so sweet and playing dominoes with the locals was a lot of fun! We would definitely do this tour again. Pat was our tour guide for the day and was very knowledgeable...

We took the Huguey tour. Excellent! You will see the real lives of the wonderful Dominican people. Pat, our guide was so very knowledgeable about the history, politics, economy and people. Tour van was not crowded...we were supposed to be 8 but only 6 showed. Within the day we covered so much. Warning...it was presented as a half day tour... More

We've gone on many tours on many vacations, both scenic and adventure styled. This is the one we'll never forget. First, let me say that Mike is a standup guy. We'd booked the tour for a Monday and for whatever reason, we missed the driver at the pick up time. Although we were at the pick up location on time,... More

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
