    The tour was excellent and I enjoyed it a lot. I liked especially the service of Ecotour. I received a confirmation of my booking via WhatsApp and I was picked up on time at my hotel. The guide was very friendly and his english was perfect. The vehicle looked to be in a good shape as well. The only thing which was incorrect in the description of the tour is that there was a picnic lunch included in the price. It is not. Despite of that it was possible to order a lunch at one stop, but I didn't take advantage of it as I was not very hungry. I can definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested to see something else than just beaches of Dominican republic.
