We are so glad you enjoyed your honeymoon with us! And we are grateful about your comments even though we are saddened about the time you spent on the bus. Usually the length of the ride to Ziplines is about 50-60 minutes to get there and the same time to return, but of course it depends on where your hotel... More

Staff was friendly and we felt safe, completely worth the money. I think our guide was very nice and helpful. Facilities were clean and well maintained. We had a blast, this was the best activity we did while in the punta cana/cap cana area.

Our tour guide was Munchie and we had a really nice day tour. He was a good guide - nice and funny and kept the day fun. It was a hot day, but the cart was loaded up with beer, rum, soda, and water. We first went to a cave, which we enjoyed a lot. Some of our fellow travellers... More

We are glad that you had a fantastic and fun day with us and we do apologize if you felt pressure to purchase souvenirs. Not only are we trying to give employment to the local people here in Bavaro and help the community in general, but also the chance to buy outside the resort with better prices. In no way... More

My husband and I had heard from friends that this excursion was worth the time and money. I must say that it was very interesting. Our guide was JJ and for the most part he was good. The only issue was that I felt he spoke more in Spanish than English. The driver was good too. Lots of bottled water... More
