This day trip was great from start to finish. Easy meeting place for pick up. Our tour guide was Natanael. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was educated in Dominican History so he added that dimension to his information. Samana is a beautiful place.I really liked the panoramic views during the bus ride to Miches and had plenty of time to enjoy the boat ride to Cayo Levantado and Samana bay,the horseback ride to El Limon waterfalls and a delicious Dominican lunch. Very well organized and clean. This was one of the best excursions I have ever experienced. I would recommend this tour and tour operator.

Fantastic trip with lots to absorb, really well paced and feel like this day will be one to remember for many years. The guide offered valuable insights and we really felt like we got a taste of the Dominican lifestyle and culture. The sights were incredible, our Gopro stayed warm throughout the trip! Make sure that you leave some tips to the horseriding assistants, they work really hard! (and perhaps avoid making the mistake of bringing British pounds as they have never seen that before)...

Very good excursion. Amassing view at el limon waterfall, riding the horse was amazing, lunch tasty , the guide Nata was excellent and beach was also nice. The only problem is transportation and communication with the local agency...we did not receive confirmation for exactly time of pick up and we wait for 5:15 am until 7 am in front of hotel...very frustrating to wake up at 4:30...

Good experience, incredible places ... only that they should improve logistics, since the guides themselves do not agree on what is the next activity and it becomes a relaxation and time is limited, with a better organization may have more enjoyment. The open bar is only at lunchtime. The guide Vic super good !!!

Most memorable thing about our trip so far! Horseback riding to the falls was amazing. Swimming at the falls was great. Bacardi island is beautiful the guides were nice told us a lot about the places we were visiting plants around us.
