I went on 2 tours with Patricia from Arena tours, both were great. The tours are really well organized with guides and translators and well worth going on. I did the whale watch/Bacardi island first then the Las Haitises/Cano Hondo tour. I recommend both.

I used Arena Tours once again a year later for my whale watching excursion. Same great service, pickup at my resort and Patricia made sure everything was ok for her clients and me. Thanks again Patricia and maybe see you at the French Bakery.

Me and a friend took the Los Haites boat tour. It was wonderful. The group was huge, but felt small. The majority of the tourists spoke French, only a few of us (3 to be exact) spoke English. The owner was kind enough to have an English speaking woman interpret for us. The tour was very informative and nice. I... More

There are only a few things that happen to you in life that you know will stay with you for ever. One of these was shadowing a group of 6 hump back whales in the Gulf of Samana observing the mating ritual. It consisted of one female, one escort and 4 suitors. The trip, organised by Arena Tours, was a... More

Great atmosphere, Patricia is an excellent host. A group of 18 people divided in french and english speaking. Our english guide, Edith, was fantastic. Drinks and snacks provided. At the end... More

My family (13 in total) traveled to Las Terrenas over the week between Christmas and New Year's. I began emailing with Patricia well in advance of our trip to book the national park excursion. Patricia was incredibly responsive and I felt confident that this would be a great experience and it was! Patricia picked us up outside the gates of... More

Patricia is well organized, very professional and a very nice person. She knows a lot about the area and Dominican Republic. We spent a great day in the Haitises National Park. Really worth it!

We spent a month in Las Terrenas with our 7 year old and tried several tour operators in town. We were so pleased with Arena Tours and Patricia that we went on two tours with her. The first was the Jeep Safari tour to Playa Rincon, which included fascinating and very educational stops such as an Iguanario (Iguana Farm), local... More
