We are absolutely thrilled. We travel a lot and this was by far the best and most beautiful tour we have ever done. The tour is worth every penny. The guides (we had Christian) an absolute dream. You feel very well cared for right from the start. The entire team makes sure that everything fits and responds very individually to the wishes of the guests. We had never experienced such hospitality. The whole thing is accompanied by a photographer (we had Manuel) - also amazing. You can decide afterwards whether you want the photos or not. Honestly, we paid about $40 for all photos (120 pieces). That's more than fair - we also gave more because Manuel tried very hard and conjured up really great photos! The individual locations that are approached are amazing! You can collect such great impressions. We can only recommend - do the tour!

we loved the excursion, everything was very well organized. transfer from our hotel to the catamaran. Thanks to Christian our guide for the day. there were also photographers on site, they took wonderful photos. the bar and the buffet is very good. Saona Island is just sublime I highly recommend taking a tour. Plan the full day from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We are group of 16 and everything went normal from pickup to drop off. We all had so much fun at Saona island and natural pool. Thanks to all who made this possible for us.

Simply amazing park - the waterfall area alone would worth the admission price, but there's much more to explore. Hoyo Azul is a must see!

Hire Nestor as a photographer because the one w this tour (girl) didn’t even tell ppl about pictures. I did mine w him
