A relaxing way to view the historic colonial zone in Santo Domingo. At just 500 RD, it was really inexpensive... Too bad I don't understand a word of Spanish... will have to ride it again with a translator guide next time.

We enjoyed our first ride so much we took the train again later the same day in the evening. Getting even more info on the history than what we'd read before coming was beneficial. Somehow it was just plain fun to ride around and wave and even be waved to. We found the train great for seeing things from a different perspective/angle. We snapped shots we wouldn't have taken while walking and they've turned out to be some of our favorites. The guys that rode along were all very friendly and helpful. The ladies selling tickets inside the station were conversational and most personable. Our first round was in Spanish, the second in English.

If I don't like something usually don't write a review because others may like something I don't. Only disappointment in the four days we visited Santo Domingo. It is advertised as a 35 to 45 minute tour of the old Colonial City. More like 20 minutes to 22 minutes at best. At 500 pesos $11 USD way over priced. Would recommend going to tourist office and getting Santo Domingo booklet and walking the tour instead, far more information than cho chu and that is all free.
