The 2 hours bike tour is the best way to start the visit in Dominican Republic, but just Santo Domingo. The tour will teach a lot about origins of the country, traditions and history from arrival of Tahinos till the independence from Spanish and Haiti. All in a very simple and pleasant way, while riding around the colorful and vibrant streets of the colonial zone. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and he will give lots of incredible recommendations about local habits as well as nightlife and local restaurants tips. Thanks to this tour we discovered how fascinating, colorful and at the same time full of controversies this country can be. The ride through the barrio outside the colonial zone is eyes opening. We were amazed by the colonial zone and the culture surrounding us. I would definitely do the bike tour again and I highly recommend anyone to get the gist of the Dominican culture through this ride, even if only visiting town for one day!

I give it 5 stars because it was more than I expected and it’s good value for the money you pay. Although everything is on a hurry and you don’t have the time to really enjoy the city, it’s understandable, because it’s difficult to make everything in one day, including transport from and to Punta Cana. But you do get to see the main attractions and even enjoy a free lunch. On a downside, the English version of the guide is poor, you better do some research about the city beforehand, because the information you get from the guide is little and sometimes hard to understand.

Nice experience, the guide David was really nice and spoke different lenguajes, everyone in our group enjoy the time and we learning a lot about the history of the city

Santo Domingo is a really nice place to go and our guide, Fransisco was very informative too. Thank you!
