The driver was 20 minutes late picking me up. When we got to the site, the group I was supposed to leave with had already left. Another guide took me by myself, so it was essentially a private tour. However, he spoke very little English, and I didn't get a "guide" of the surrounding area so much as a silent ride-along of the countryside and the beach. Even so, my escort did his best to make me comfortable and made sure to take plenty of pictures of me to remember the experience. Overall, the tour was simply fantastic. It was so surreal riding through shaded dirt trails with cows and horses and crops on either side of the road. It was such an authentic experience, where I was technically allowed full control of my horse and sometimes followed my guide off trail into the grass. Macao beach itself was absolutely magical. We got there in time to catch the very last of the sunset. The ocean was tinted with the fiery reds, oranges, and pinks in the sky. It was incredibly beautiful.
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!
Very good excursion. The guide is really nice and the organisation is well. One remark during the horse riding the guide told me that he was a volunteer that frustrated me a lot as I didn’t bring money for this activity as the information wasn’t in the description.I recommend to the local agency to add the tips to the excursion price as I don’t think That I was the only one in this case that is not good for the horses guide volunteer that were really nice and helpful.
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...
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.
