03/26/2020 We just returned on the 19th of March after being in the DR for 2 weeks. We bought the tour while on the airplane on the way to Puerto Plata. We read the description in the brochure, in depth, and thought what a great way to see and learn about the country and culture. We tend to gravitate more towards this sort of thing versus the 'adventure adrenaline junky' tours. Boy, were we wrong! The only positive, other than being picked up in a covered, windowless truck with bench seating (which was quite comfortable considering it was quite hot that day) and truthful thing about the description in both guides, was the tour of the cheese factory. It was insightful, informative and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone...but it went downhill after that and we were not the only ones to say that on the tour. After leaving the cheese factory, we were driven, for which seemed like miles, but was probably only 5 or 10 miles, into the countryside to a little village to visit this little old lady who served us coffee and we were made to bang on drums...oh ya, and leave a tip! We couldn't understand what that stop was all about other than to show life in the countryside...which coincidently, was not on any brochure! The next stop was a visit to where they supposedly made organic oils and such and given the opportunity to purchase overpriced herbs and oils. This was supposed to be the 'typical artisans house' and place where they supposedly made bread, but we didn't see any artisans or bread being made. But you could definitely purchase Vanilla for $6 US where we purchased the same product 2 days previous in Puerto Plata, at the market, for under $1 US. Shameful! On we went to the Cacao plantation/factory where the tour took us in a small circle through the Cacao trees. Took all of 5 minutes or less. Again, on to the visitor centre where they had you sit on chairs, watching a 'sales pitch' for the products that were produced at the centre, but here you could taste the cacao which they served hot. We didn't get to go into the factory and see how everything was made, although you could see workers going about their jobs. Informative, somewhat, but again trying to sell you something. The tour, if you can call it that, of the 'cigar factory' was a total deceitful farce at best. You get dropped off at this store front location where you're herded in and given a demonstration of cigar rolling, along with a history lesson of cigar leaves and such. You have the option to go into the walk-in humidor or peruse the store where you can buy made elsewhere trinkets to take home and collect dust! We weren't shown a tobacco plantation. We weren't shown a 'factory' where you would see the leaves drying and the whole process of what it takes to get leave from the field to the table where the cigars are eventually made. We were shown into a store, plain and simple! And the final visit of the tour...the 'hidden beach'! Which really wasn't hidden as we could see it from our resort! Again, what a complete farce and waste of our time and money! Top it off, the tour description in the brochure on the plane said nothing of this beach, nor were we given notice of being taken there when we made the booking. The only saving grace of this tour was the lunch they served. My wife and I, and others gave the lunch a 9/10. Fried chicken which was crispy, not greasy. Rice that wasn't clumpy and vegetables which were a perfect al dante. And they served us Rum if we wanted, no extra charge! We cannot endorse this tour as we felt it was a deceitful sham in every sense of the word! Would we recommend this tour - NO!

I'm an experienced rider and I asked if I can have a more advanced ride along the beach and they said it's no problem at all. I galloped along the shore with one of the guides and it was glorious. The horses are in good shape, active and looked healthy. A stop for a drink and a swim with the horses is another lovely gem in the plan. Buy something from the guy who sells jewelry on the shore - that little ring with a stone is now my favorite because of the memory of that day. I also attended a zip line and was lucky to be the only person who booked for that time so I has a whole experience to myself, no waiting in line. Zip lines are nice, nothing too exciting but still a good break from a beach-hotel life. Organization was good, the guides were on time, picked me up at the hotel and brought me back. Would recommend.

I'm sad to write a bad review (for the second time for Dominican Republic...), because we thoroughly enjoyed our Top3 in 1 experience during the daytime. When it came to our hourseback riding was cut short for some reason - I know the tour guide wanted to go home sooner as he kept saying we have to hurry up once we returned from the safari buggy. In the brochure, it states that horseback riding is approximately 35 minutes, but we were only on the horse for about 10 minutes. Also, the gift shop we were taken to during this trip totally over charged us on the merchandise which left a very bad taste in my mouth. I bought 2 body creams at the cigar shop which they charged me a "special discount price" of $25US total. The next day, I stopped by a local supermarket, only to find exact same items for $5US each. This was a huge disappointment and I felt I was taken advantage of. I recommend other travelers NOT to purchase anything from the cigar shop and just look for similar items at local super markets. The photographer and the driver who were with us that day were super friendly and kind. I tipped them both, because their services were excellent. I also tipped the tour guide $5US, since he didn't really come out to us on the adventures and I didn't feel he genuinely wanted us show us a good time, rather, he was more concerned about time. At the end, the tour guide said "You didn't even tip me? Oh man," even though I tipped him $5US, as if that wasn't good enough and that made the entire experience a "sad" experience. The tour guide from another tour we joined (VIP Paradise Island Tour) was sincere and genuine, and he said "tips are appreciated but not expected," which made me want to tip him $20US. This tour guide was also someone who constantly gave us helpful information and entertained us throughout our tour. I'd like to suggest to the management to not only pay their staff a fair amount, but also educate the tour guides about the expectation of tipping.

The cultural escape excursion was so amazing, and Alberto our tour guide made the entire day even better! The places you visit will truly immerse you into the Dominican culture, and let you see how hard working everybody is. Met so many local people who welcomed us into their homes/places of work. Alberto was so knowledgeable about everything and shared so much with us. He called us his “familia” the entire day, which really put a smile on our faces every time. Thank you for such a great experience! Would definitely recommend.
