Melvin and his cousin/friend took my boyfriend and I on an amazing excursion to Playa Rincon on December 31st. They were AWESOME and even took time to stop at a Dominican house to show our group the lifestyle of a typical Dominican family. It was and will be the most favorite thing about our trip to the DR. We booked directly with Melvin via e-mail and he got back to us quickly, picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off. HIGHLY recommended if you are staying in the Samana area. Thanks again Melvin!!

The "Waterfall Cascada El Limon" tour was not as lovely as described on it's website.
Positives:: The waterfall was beautiful and our guide was very kind.
Negatives:: The "hiking" was just climbing muddy steps, the "horseback riding" over "hills and rivers" was wildly exaggerated, and "volunteers" guide your horse every step of the way. It should be noted that it is not mandatory to pay the volunteers but you are informed numerous times throughout the excursion that Samaná depends on tourism.

Also, boots were provided given the muddy conditions but you must remember to bring socks or else you will pay $3pp!

Came on shore from my Norwegian Dawn cruise ship who intentionally delayed all its passenger on private shore excursions. This result in many folks booked with Razor ATV tour delayed as much as 1.5 hours and not turning up. However Melvin and his staff waited patiently at the dock and being the first two guest and not let us waiting and wasting our time assign not one but two guide to start our ATV tour.

Razor guides were ever vigilant for our safety, knowledgeable, caring and guide us to remote but beautiful isolated locations like the pristine beaches facing the Atlantic as well as waterfall and plantation. When we request to sample local food for lunch, they took us to the local beach front open air hut-like "restaurant" where the villager cut and clean fresh fish , season it and barbecue it and serve it with caribbean rice, salad, plantans and rum punch. Our lunch which is very much local food for four of us (me, my wife and two tour guides were treated with a whole fish each) cost only $35.

The whole tour is done very much at a wonderful pace and gave us a good view of samana beauty admist the abundance of poverty that prevail in the general population of samana. Highly recommend razor's ATV tour ....... forget of horse riding or truck/van type tour as majority of the best locations in samana is pretty inaccesible.

We reached Razor tours by email, and got the reply from Melvin in just few minutes, and all set in less than 2 hours. The price is much cheaper than the one offered by our hotel and it includes the pick-up. The ATV tour is amazing , Melvin is a very nice and interesting guy. The beach is really beatiful, better than the one in the hotel, hopfully we could be there again ;)

I had never been on an ATV before in my life. With excellent instruction and a great deal of humour, Melvin and his crew had me laughing and driving down a street within minutes. The terrain itself was fantastic...pavement, off-road, hills, beach, etc. We covered it all. Playa Rincon was our destination and it didn't disappoint. It was beautiful there! We experienced some rain, but that didn't take away from this Caribbean paradise. Not a hotel in sight.
Getting to experience the real Dominican Republic (outside of a resort) definitely made the trip. One of the first things Melvin tells you is to keep your eyes on the road, but I could not help it - my eyes were everywhere. There was just so much to look at on this excursion. If you have the opportunity to go on this trip, do not let it pass...and don't forget your camera! Thank you Melvin! - "The City Boy"
