I went to Punta Cana with a group of friends to celebrate a friends reunion, we all came from different parts of the Caribbean and North America. We just wanted an all-inclusive resort so that we can relax and mingle properly and have enough time for us. However, I reached out to various tour operators to organize this trip for us, mainly because of the difficult logisitics of people arriving from different countries at different times and dates and second because I was looking for some great and unique stuff we can do outside of the resort. Dominican Expert replied always promptly and with full information. Furthermore they made some really creative proposals with regard to our group activities. We went to Montana Redonda and Los Haitises National Park, which was absolutely awesome and with a lot of fun (and new experiences!) for everyone. Also the resort they recommended us was perfect for our needs. With all those great experiences and super communication with their staff, I can only recommend Dominican Expert for all Dominican Republic travellers.

Eldris of the Dominican Expert did a tremendous job customizing a tour of the Dominican Republic, and we cannot thank her enough. With her help we arranged a tour by rental car over two weeks, visiting six places of great beauty and vibrant culture. Eldris did a fantastic job coordinating all of the tour operators, hotels, rental car and associated rental car insurance. We experienced very little angst in transitioning from place to place largely because of Eldris' trip planning.

We especially enjoyed canyoneering in Jarabacoa, hiking in the lush forest of Ebano Verde scientific reserve, exploring the majestic terrain near Tubagua and swimming in Charcos de los militares,

We also loved the romantic settings provided by our thatch-roofed hut at the Tubagua Eco-lodge, and watching the sun set at several gorgeous beaches, including at Rio San Juan and at Las Galeras. Also, our time in Los Haitises National Park was filled with the songs of many birds and chirping things, and was the most extraordinary landscapes of the entire trip.

Thank you Eldris, and Dominican Expert. When we tour the DR again we're going to start you you.

Regards,

Lyman

Planning, booking and everything around it worked like a charm. Christian Jannasch was very helpful for us in organizing our vacation over christmas and new year 2018 / 2019. As well during our stay in the dominican republic, he was reachable for us (via WhatsApp) in case we had any questions. Thank you for that. :-) We already recommended you to some friends.

Our family had a pretty complicated set of travel constraints - 8 people, mountains, scuba, rafting, beach time, etc. - and Christian and the team designed, organized and executed a great trip for us. We could not done it without them.

We emailed Lara with about a paragraph of our ideal four-day vacation to the Dominican Republic. She responded the next day with two perfect options in different price ranges. She found us an amazing hotel (Sublime) in Las Terrenas and organized two amazing day trips that included beaches and sea one day and hiking and a waterfall for the other day. We had the perfect amount of downtime at the Sublime hotel. Lara responded quickly and clearly with each of our questions or new requests. The drivers she arranged were friendly, careful, and high quality. Tour guides were also very good. I had wanted to organize this on my own, but I'm so glad we reached out to Lara and received her help. Thank you Lara!
