The waterfall ride is mandatory during time in the area. Certainly have water shoes for the swim and, while it may have been a bit over the top, I would have enjoyed the swim even more had I worn webbed swimming gloves given how the rocks are a bit sharp. Yes, you want to ride the horse there and not... More

Just got home from the DR and had two wonderful tours with Terry's team! We did the ATV tour right from our resort, El Portillo, and had a blast! Benjamin was our guide and he knew we had done this tour before so he took us to different places then we had gone in previous years. But he also included... More

Me and two friends had an amazing time ziplining with Terry one morning during our trip to the DR. We highly recommend this tour!!! We also went on two tours with Flora tours during our trip, and while we also liked Flora I have to say we enjoyed Terry more. It seemed very personal, whereas the Flora tours felt more... More

My husband, parents and I did the Samana tour with Terry. We were there for day via a cruise stop. We were met by Ben, our fantastic guide. We had a great trip through the countryside. It was beautiful landscape. We stopped for a short visit at a small, local plantation. We drove our ATVs down the beach and had... More

We spent 7 days in Samana. During that time we booked Tour Samana with Terry for airport transfer from SDQ, Whales with Kim, El Limon Waterfall, Secluded Beaches Tour, Zipline, and transportation between hotels when we switched locations midweek. Everything was perfect. The customer service and prompt communication started before we booked. Terry helped us figure out which trips to... More

We reserved 4 excursions with Tour Samana for our holiday in El Portillo Grand Bahia Principe. I planned all the excursions from Italy on internet and the answers and payment service were perfect. Terry answered all my e-mails in real time and that was really great for me! He also changed quickly two dates of excursions because we postponed our... More

We booked with Terry for our pickup at the airport. The hotel wanted to charge us $140 and he only charges us $95. The driver was very nice, stopping to show us a beautiful view over looking the ocean. He spoke pretty good English. We changed resorts for the second week, so they picked us up and we did the...

I booked a roulette package with Air Canada Vacations, and couldn't be sure what hotel we would get. I emailed Terry and asked him how to book a whale tour to ensure transportation, because one of the hotels was a long way, and I didn't want to haggle for a cab. He advised me to book Whale Samana from El... More

I booked Whale Watching with Tour Samana with Terry as a private excursion on our recent Oceania cruise stop in Cayo Levantado. We were a small group of only 4 people so we went out on a small motor boat with our guide and two crew. It was only a short ride into Samana Bay before we noticed other boats... More
