Review of Indrinatours Quad

Indrinatours Quad
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We got an excellent tour guide, Howling (thats how its pronounced, not sure how to sp) who spoke English. Took us to el limon, we were the only ones there when we arrived, had the waterfall to ourselves for a short time. Then off to Coffee Road. He knew everything about everything on the road/tour and pointed it all out to us. We had a blast on the ATV's, Limon, and all the different plantations- rubber, coffee, cigars, etc. Stopped at overlooks with the most beautiful views. This is a must do excursion and you must go through Indrinatours. Wonderful staff and excellent tour!!!

We found Patrick through Terry and Rachel at One Love restaurant and what a great hook up it was! Our guide spoke more English than we did Spanish, between us both we were able to understand each other well enough, ask for Houlein (sp?) pronounced "howl-een" We did the El Limon waterfall and Coffee road ATV tour. They met us at our hotel with the ATVs where it was about a 10 minute ride from the GBP El portillo. We rode horses up the mountain to waterfall where we had it all to ourselves for a good hour before the hordes of tourists showed up. I will say however the hike down to the waterfall where the horses could not go is not for the weak of heart! It's a pretty tough climb! We then went back to our starting point and had a great Dominican feast set out for us! We then took the ATVs through the coffee road, if you like off-roading this was some awesome scenery and seeing the real Dominican Republic! We got to smoke some great cigars and see how they're made. We got to see a rubber, coffee and cocoa plantations and see how they're all made. We got a taste of REAL coffee and a REL Cocoa treat! This tour is a must see! Don't forget to bring plenty of money for tips and souvenirs, these people depend on tourism for their livelihood.

We went for a full day on the road, stopped for coffee, rhum, cigar, typical lunch and jumped in the waves of a hidden paradise beach. What more could we wish for? The guides Patrick and Raoul were friendly, knowledgeable and made it so easy for the group to enjoy this day. We even appreciated a forced break due to a passing storm in a local bar in the middle of the coffee fields!
My first quad experience was a great way to discover the local DR life.

We had a full day on this excurtion. We were suppose to snorkel when we went to the beach but found out when we got there we were not, even though it is advertised with snorkeling. The tour guide we had did not even know we were to snorkel. The 4 wheeling was alot of fun and we did get to see alot.

This tour was great, I would recommend it to a friend!

Both of the tour guides were great, however Fernando, the local guide was really cool and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to share a ton of details about the environment which kept the locations interesting. Both tour guides were social and funny! The quads are actually nice too. Most of the quads I rented fell apart, but this company had nice quads for the clients. The guides quad died towards the end of the ride, but the other guide rode back with one of us so that we weren't inconvenienced in time. They went to pick up the other guide after.

We did a few activities, we first took the ATVs to a small outdoor area and waited for horses to take us to the waterfall. We took the horses up a treacherous road up a muddy hill to the waterfall while some of the local kids walked along side of us. Your guides do not go on this portion of the trip and the kids only speak Spanish. You get the chance to swim at the waterfall and then you take the horses back to the outdoor area where you are provided a nice local lunch. TIP: don't buy much from the vendor there, he is overpriced.

After the lunch you take the ATVs to a small shaq in which they roll cigars, the guy speaks English. After, you drive through a bunch of small villages and get to a small farm looking space with rubber making equipment. They take the tree saps and make rubber and you learn the process, which is neat.

We then took a FUN drive to a ladies home in which she produces coffee, chocolate and Mamajuana. She is very nice and you get to try the chocolate!!

Here are some pros and cons about the trip:

Pros:

- Great tour guides
- Coffee plantation (ladies house)
- waterfall, lunch, ATV ride

Cons:
- Horses are really small and skinny, and it's a bit strange that your guides don't come with you
- I wish there were more drinks available on the ride, we were all thirsty, so bring water with you
- Price, at 80$ a person or $3200 pesos, I expected to have my own quad per person, however it was two people per ATV and we both wanted to drive.

Hope this helps!

MERCI POUR VOS REMARQUES CONSTRUCTIVES :
Nos guides vous accompagnent sur la route du cafe et ils vous ont satisfait , merci , mais laisse leurs place a la cascade a d autres pour assurer un travail aux jeunes qui habitent a LIMON pres de la cascade , c est pour nous une obligation de se plier a ce changement de guides .
Comme vous le souligner nos quads sont en bonnes conditions et plus puissants que la concurrence mais cela a un cout , et je vous signale que les quads ici valent beaucoup plus chers que chez vous . ceci explique nos tarifs .
