    We had an awesome time. We met 7 other people who shared our bus and we all got along great. Our driver, Rosario, was the best. He was so friendly and we appreciated that he waited on my husband and myself as we took a while to figure out that we had to walk out to the main road when we arrived in port. I was panicked that we would miss the tour!! Everyone was so gracious and patient.

    Rosario had a well stocked cooler of every type of cold drink and our group enjoyed the alcoholic shots on our return to the port after the tour. That DR rum is delicious and I'm not a rum lover.

    The tour was great and very challenging. My husband and I are fit so it was fairly easy for us but I could see that others found the hike a bit challenging.

    The lunch was ok since the meats were a bit overcooked but the sides were tasty.

    We also got a tour of a coffee factory which supported the local community. There were different stone and wood craft as well as the Larimar jewelry which I absolutely love. The prices were very reasonable. It was nice to know that our purchases supported the local community.

    I would definitely recommend this tour. It's the most reasonable priced available and it's nice to do this tour with a small group of people.

    Our guide, Carlos, made the experience very memorable and exciting. He’s speaks English very well, so don’t worry about any language barriers.

    He is also very friendly and down to earth. For example, Carlos and I chatted for awhile about a mountain biking which was a common interest. In other words, he was very welcoming and it made the waterfall jumping/sliding tour even better than we expected.

    For the waterfall portion of the tour, we were with two other couples, so it was a small group which gave us plenty of time to enjoy to take videos/photos.

    The van ride from the cruise port was scenic and quick. The facilities at the bottom of the waterfalls were very nice and maintained with showers and bathrooms to change into dry clothes.

    If you do, bring a camera, make sure that it’s waterproof and has a some sort of leash to stay attached to you because you will be swimming in deep water for a short periods of time and there are other parts that could cause you to lose it. Also, if you need to wear glasses, use a strap to hold them on.

    After the waterfalls, we had a delicious buffet lunch with a huge bottle of included rum🍹, so our group was on “another level” by the end of the tour. 😂🥳

    If you enjoy a little hiking, jumping off and sliding down waterfalls, then you’ll probably love this tour.

    I was a little sceptical about booking a trip outside of our cruise ship. I was Surprised how Easy, Safe and affordable it was using this company. We got confirmation that the the tour bus would meet us outside the Main Gate of the cruise port and they where there with a sign and in the Company Shirts which I thought was very professional. Don't expect a Big bus it was a 10 passenger minivan and the A/C worked Great. The driver didn't speak good English but Google language helps and they were very helpful and respectful guys A+ . I went with my family and at no time were we left on our own with out the Driver. The 7 waterfalls trip is really nice and the lunch that came with our package was well worth the price. The lunch was good lots of fresh vegetables and home cooked food.
    The only thing that I would make sure you know you have to Hike up a Mountain for about 30-40 minutes to reach the falls. Wear thick soul shoes or water shoes the hiking is not for the weak though the rain forest. But coming back the Falls are Awesome. Worth the hard hike.

    Rosario the owner came over and introduced himself to use and let us know it was safe to leave our Bags and belongings in the Van. They were safe and secure the entire trip. Good Luck all.

    Our family did this trip, and although we only were able to hit the bottom 7 falls, the experience was great. We all loved it. Jumping in, sliding in, swimming through, were all fun. The only not fun was the hot hike at first. But only 25 minutes and the guides went slow enough for everyone and gave plenty of breaks. The falls were fun. The lunch was tasty and everyone was great and friendly.

    Highly recommend. The staff are amazing. This excursion has something for everyone. For the active, snorkeling and swimming, for the partying spontaneous dancing under the awning, for sun worshiping nets below the sails, open bar (after snorkeling) lunch buffet and a gorgeous sail from Sosua to Ocean World in Puerto Plata. Alec will entertain you and multilingual Alain will guide you through. Just do it.

    It was even better than I expected. Everyone was so pleasant, attentive, and best of all fun. They make sure you’re taken care of by providing unlimited water, feeding you lunch (which is so delicious), and ensuring you are and feel safe when doing the activities. They were moments where my group mentioned they were a bit afraid and they would stop to check on us and encourage us. Most definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone. Thank you for making us feel so welcomed!

    We were only able to do seven falls because of lack of water but was still very fun. Was our favorite excursion of the trip. Carlos was a great guide. Picked us ripe mangos from the tree and lunch was fantastic.

    Excellent Tour - not fast paced but got to see a lot. The Cable Car was not part of the Cruise Ship offers and was glad I got to go. We did see Cruise Passengers at the top of the mountain but they had to drive back down (spending repeated tour time) as we got to take the cable car down which gave a lot of beautiful view and got extra time in the city as such.

    The staff took excellent care of our group. Rafael was personable, professional, and entertaining. He took safety seriously yet ensured that we had a great time. Thank you so much for an adventure of a lifetime!

    This was, without question, one of the most fun excursions I’ve ever been on. If not THE best. It was incredible and so much fun. Every single person we met in the D.R. (including staff) were SO friendly. Our buggy did suffer a minor complication throughout the ride, but the crew was suuuper quick and had us on a back-up buggy right away. Beware of the Bergantin beach. This is part of the tour, and you stop for a moment to enjoy the beach…but 1 problem. The vendors. Immediately after you get off the buggy for the beach break, the vendors IMMEDIATELY swarm you trying to get you to spend an outrageous amount of money on their cheap jewelry, braids, etc. once we were back on the buggy’s for the 2nd part of the tour, the rest was a blast. You WILL get dirty, and you WILL take a half-hour shower back on the ship once you get back. They do offer a shower right at the end of the excursion while you’re waiting for your bus back to the ship. They have a very organized and well structured setup. I encourage you to spend the outrageous money on a bandana and glasses because you WILL need them. It’s VERY muddy and dirty. They’re 5 bucks each. Seriously one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Will do this excursion every single time I come back to the D.R.

    GIVE THEM A SHOT!! 65 bucks a person is MORE than fair for the experience!!!

    Best dune buggy tour in the Dominican Republic by far!!! Really professional staff, a little hard to find but stay in contact with them and they'll get you there. Halfway through you end up on a mountain with a guy making hand rolled cigars, growing coffee and a few other local staples. Great tour, you gotta experience it!!!

    Everything was amazing. Alexander The Great was a superior tour guide and photographer! Big Papi William was the best driving. From touring the highest mountain, to rolling cigars, to tasting 7 kinds of rum…everything was amazing. And I don’t get me started on the food….deliciousness!!!!!Can’t wait to come back and bring friends! Be sure to ask for extra Gasoline when you go….(you’re welcome)
