Mariposa tours provided my family and I with the best excursion we have had thus far in the DR. From start to finish it was filled with many memorable experiences. The cost of the tour to Isla saona was perfect for what you will see and eat on the long day excursion. My children loved the speed boat, natural pools... More

Fantastic! They are so helpful and friendly.. My boyfriend and I were staying in Bayahibe and wanted to visit the Saona island-- clean white sand, empty beaches, etc. We found that the way to do it is through a boat-- this tour goes to the furthest part of the island, stopping along the way at a natural pool in the...

The man in the office was absolutely helpful. When we booked our tour to Saona he answered us any question we had (not concerning the tour), showed us where the next ATM is and where we could rent a scooter (the day we got the scooter he even came around and translated for us) and any time we walked past...

You'll find this local tour operator on the promenade of Bayahibe. It seems a small office, but enthusiastic italian owners will give you assistance for your happy discovery of lovely Dominican Republic. Downtown trip in Santo Domingo is provided, with expert guides, some interesting stops in spectacular natural attractions, and, of course, shopping. They can provide also apartment and car... More

Isla Saona trip with Mariposa Tours We stayed at Viva Wyndam Dominicus Beach resort. We wanted to go to the National Park of the East and Saona Island on a day trip. We gathered information from the resort ($89 -- no lobster and shorter trip), and then went exploring. I had read about Mariposa Tours on line before we arrived... More

They worked quickly. They didn't try to offer us excursions, that were not suitable for us. All the services provided were exactly what we needed. Also, they were very cheerful and welcoming, without becoming annoying. When I met a guy, we worked with, in a supermarket several days after, he recognized me and welcomed - that I really liked.

The excursion to Saona Island - Canto della Playa is one of the best I've ever been! All that was promised was fulfilled. We we're a group of 13 people including the kids and everyone of us was satisfied. The places we've seen are beyond comparison. Imagine a desert white beach, we found coconuts and we eat them in the... More
