Nice trip but mass produced and consumed. Numerous bus transfers with some confusion. Service people (guides bartenders marineros dancers) were all attentive. Lunch was ok quality. Our buses brakes caught fire on the way back but the driver recovered quickly and impressed transportation for us back to our stop.

This was an amazing trip. Full day of fun. Benjamin is by far the best daddy out there!! He made sure we were taken care of all day long. Would have been nice to have a little more time on altos de chavron to explore. Natural pool and saona island some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen!! The crew on the boat keeps everyone feeling alive. Only complaint is time spent on bus and switching busses back and forth. But still very organized!! Would definitely do this trip again. Worth every penny!! Thank you Benjamin “big daddy” you were amazing!!!

DO NOT BOOK THIS TRIP!!!!!!!

I waited since 6:30 AM to be picked up they did not show up till almost 8 to collect me. Lied and said they came and I was not there. When we arrived at the bus I was traveling with my 8 year old son. All the seats were taking as they tend to double book and there were no two sits together. I said if I am not sitted with my son I can’t go. “Big papi” told me I needed to call a cab and money will not be refunded to me. Thank god someone gave up their seat and my 9 year old and I were able to seat together. The trip was overbooked, badly advertise they do not take you to Altos de Chavon first as advertise is done at the end of the tour. The side in isla saona that they rent is the ugly side, the left over from more reputable tours.i should have known something was wrong since they lied about picking me up and the concierge in my hotel also advised against them. DO NOT BOOK WITH THESE PEOPLE.

Yesterday, we did this amazing trip and did not expect too much to be honest. In my experience, such trips are always extremely touristy, there are hundreds of people and the nature does not look anything as on the pictures. But this excursion seriously blew my mind! First, we went to Altos de Chavon, which was really nice and a nice change if you're doing a beach-only vacation like we are doing. We were a really small group and the city was basically empty - no tourists at all! The second highlight was the catamaran ride to Saona Island - we joined another group so we were with approx 30-40 people but that did not bother us at all. It was so much fun and we had the best Rum Colas ever! Everybody on the boat was dancing and had a great time! Then Saona Island... wow! We could chill there for about 2,5h, the lunch was great and the scenery.. you need to see that through your own eyes! There were other boats as well but it was certainly not too crowded and we enjoyed the 'real carribean' feeling. Then, we took a speedboat to a natural 'swimming pool' - which was crystal clear water in front of an island. I've seriously never seen anything like that! It was simply amazing and again, not crowded at all! The last stop was a gift shop on the way back, but nobody is forcing you to buy anything so if you're not into that you can also just stay in the bus! Our conclusion - DO IT! Worth every penny, our guide Benjamin was amazing and the places you visit will blow your mind! The whole trip took around 13h so we were really tired once we got back to the hotel but as i said.. 100% worth it!
