This was the complete package. We had previously booked two trips using a local vendor. We found the transfers took most of the day, changing buses at various meeting points with no real guidance. At one point we had to get off one bus and onto an other on a highway interchange where the drivers took our photographs for reference! Very disconcerting. Rest assured booking your trip with Get Your Guide is haste free and worry free, our local contact called in advance to tell us the pick up point and time and that was it, onwards to our destination! What a destination! Catamaran cruise to a beautiful picturesque beach. Stopping for a swim on a sand bar, awesome lunch, plenty free booze. Everything taken care of by our attentive and informed guide pappi. Great day out and certainly the best trip we had during our stay in paradise.
The excursion was definitely involving and very intense! Pro. Notwithstanding the several shifts and activities it was perfectly organised. Guides were very well prepared and provided a big range of info. Places visited were stunning. Cayo Levantado is a paradise. Cons. Before your horse ride to Limon waterfall: take into consideration that the accompanying guys receive no salary for their services (they act as "volunteers"). Each accompany guy is given an horse (and takes care of feeding and cleaning it) and they only live with the tips provided by visitors. Unfortunately the time to enjoy Cayo Levantado (aprox 1 hour30) is very short. Mind the urchins!
I have been to the DR many times, this is my 4th experience to Samana and this was by far the best tour I have ever taken! Excellent service, organization, guides are superb! Although there was a slight delay during pick up (about 7 minutes) once the bus showed up it was all ok. I will definitely be coming back and bring my family this time! Cayo Levantado island is breathtaking! Props to our guide Joaquin! he is the best of the best!! Thank you GYG for an amazing experience!! See you again next year and please thank your DR supplier for their kind attention to details. I will recommend to all my friends traveling to the island during thi summer!
The trip was well organised. We really enjoyed the natural swimming pool and took some great pictures there. Saona island itself is very beautiful to visit however it felt a bit crowded, so we did not get to relax that much laying in the sunbeds. Catamaran and speedboat trips were also very enjoyable.
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.
