    Great Reliable and Safe Taxi Service!
    We used Emilio at Optima Taxi to take us from Puerto Plata airport to Las Terrenas on the Samana peninsula where we were staying. Really appreciated the prompt communication through Whatsapp and Email. Reasonable price. Emilio picked us up on time on the way there and back. He had drinks for us in a cooler on arrival. He has an air conditioned minivan. He even stopped at a local restaurant for a bathroom break and tasty take out - club sandwiches and fries. It was about a 4 hour drive but we got a great look at the country side. We felt safe with his driving skills...there are alot of motorbikes on the road! We highly recommend Emilio for his taxi services.

    Friendly, reliable, trustworthy, nice vehicle.
    I have relied on Emilio/Optima Taxi Samana for airport transfers and other transportation needs during my visits with family to Las Terrenas last year and again last week. Friendly, reliable, trustworthy, nice vehicle. I will not hesitate to use this service again.

    El Limon to Las Galleras
    Very easy from start to finish! I booked the taxi over WhatsApp for the next day and Emilio was very responsive, confirming the booking and price quickly. This service was from El Limon area to Las Galleras. Emilio arrived early and the drive was very smooth. Also, the price was better value than I had seen elsewhere. Would highly recommend.

    I traveled to Las Terrenas via STI Santiago airport from 4/11/24 to 4/17/24. The service was impeccable. From the point I made the reservation, the communication was very transparent and quick. Emilio made sure I had a car seat for my one year old and the driver Henry drove incredibly safe and is a tour guide on the way to the Hotel explaining everything along the way. They're very accommodating, stopping for pictures and bathroom breaks, something the big companies charge extra for. If you read this give them a chance you will not be disappointed! We traveled to Las Terrenas via Santiago from 4/1/24 to 4/17/24. The service was impeccable. From the point I made the reservation, communication was fast and transparent. Emilio made sure I had a child seat for my one-year-old and Henry drives very safely. Henry, apart from guiding so well, is a guide explaining the areas covered. They are very helpful stopping for us to take photos and in case you need to use the bathroom, a service that other companies charge extra for. If you read this review, please give them the opportunity to serve you, you won't regret it! Thanks Henry and Emilio, see you next time! Jose, Alexi and the children.

We used Optima Taxi Samana for airport transfers and had a great experience. Emilio was very prompt both with email confirmations and arrivals. He was waiting for us with a sign at the airport with a smile on his face. We had an 8-month old baby with us so we especially appreciated his safe driving. He never did anything sketchy and made me feel safe compared to other short taxi rides that we took during our trip. Recommend!

Emilio took care of all our driving needs while we visited Samana, Dominican Republic. He went out of his way for us every time we needed to make an extra stop always with a smile on his face. He is a great driver...very safe and aware of all the surroundings. His service made our trip so much better. His knowledge of the area, routes and best places to visit was excellent.

Óptima was fantastic. We had problems with our flight but Optima was very flexible and accommodating. We were very fortunate that we selected this service. I am not sure if another service would have picked us up at 3:25 am and waited while we dealt with luggage issues. The drive from the airport to the resort and back were great. Very professional and great customer service. Angelo (the driver frome the resort back to the airport) was very kind. He made sure to point out some beautiful sights and stopped so we could take pictures. The entire experience was wonderful. We will definitely use Optima again.

From the moment we met Emilio we felt at ease. He had drinks for us ready in a cooler and got us to the hotel in a very clean van and of course safely. Was very informative and polite and had we planned our trip better would have utilized Emilio for all our tours. Next time there is no doubt Emilio will be our choice over any bus ride or hotel transportation. Let me add he was right on time never leaving any doubt that he would get us to the airport on time. Thank you Emilio!!!

We were in Samana last week. We hired Emilio to take us on three excursions. He was very polite, his vehicle was very clean, and he was knowledgeable about the attractions of the area. He was always on time and never rushed us at all. He is a trustworthy person. We highly recommend him!

Emilio was so happy that he got to take us and show us around during our stay. The El Limon waterfall tour was wonderful, all thanks to Emilio. He took us to a family owned ecotours and from there were rode horses to the waterfall with some amazing locals offering guidance and help
