Transportation to and from was free and in new minivan's with great AC. Flavio was an excellent guide and did not pressure us to buy. We got to try a cigar and make one. Rum was great and the mango and passion fruit drink they made was the best tropical drink we ever had. Adonnis in the chocolate tour was informative and passionate about the cacao culture in DR..milk chocolate was amazing. Excellent tour and prices were reasonable in the shops.
