After a recent trip to Grand Paradise Samana, I can certainly agree with all of the previous reviews. Rudy is great- he is kind, a gentlemen, educating, funny, makes everyone feel comfortable, and an all around wonderful person. I highly recommend anyone visiting Grand Paradise to find Rudy on the beach and do an excursion with him. He isn't all about getting your money- he is all about the enjoyment of the clients. I went riding with Rudy a few times during my stay, and even just hung out aside from the horse riding. I now consider him to be a great friend and would welcome him into my home in Canada anytime. Aside from all of Rudy's great characteristics, his horses are very well taken care of. They are healthy, happy, well trained, and alot of fun.
Please, anyone who is visiting the area do not miss out on such a wonderful opportunity to ride through the beautiful DR while learning about the fascinating culture!
