Definitely worth it!

If you are looking for a full day (12 hr) excusion with history, culture, fun & incredible sights, this is the trip for you. We loved our tour guide (shout out to Sexi Papi) who gave us lots of great info about life in DR along the tour. Yes, it is a lot of travel (air conditioned van to boat, to covered truck, to horseback ride, and then all this in reverse back to your resort). But we felt it was fun & interesting the entire way. The highlight for us was jumping off and swimming behind a gorgeous waterfall. Most people we spoke to did not even know about this tour, it is in my opinion a hidden gem! Bring cash to tip your guides. They appreciate it & make their living off tourism. You get to see villages, houses & businesses of the locals which is interesting. Lunch on the ranch was delicious. Horseback riding was great. Make sure you barter with the merchants who try to sell you trinkets though, they can be pushy, so be firm & don’t pay more than you feel its worth. Overall excellent guides, we felt safe, they watched our bags all day so nothing was stolen & we could swim & enjoy, we highly recommend this tour!

Excellent service and excursion a must do

The driver Juan Cruz was great on time and very helpful, hope everyone get him as their driver for pick up and drop off. After changing to a bigger bus, you are off. Our guide “sexy Papi” gave a lot of cultural information on our way to the boat. The only part that was confused is we where told we can get breakfast when we get to the boat dock. This was not the case for the restroom line was long and no one did not have time to order anything. The boat ride was nice and enjoyable. The crew was great and passed out Soda and water. Once you arrive at the doc you get on a Safari truck and go though the town. This was great to see the culture outside of the tourist area. Then you get to the horse back riding , able to use the rest room. Now everyone should wear close toe shoes. But if for some crazy reason you don’t. They do have rain boots for free for you to wear, however you do have to purchase the socks. Everyone one get their own guide to the falls that walks with your horse. Even if you know how to ride (like myself). This is understandable due to the rocks can be slipper or like in my case my horse did not want to be slow. Lol The horse are very well taken care of, by the guides. Please note that the guides only get paid via what you tip them. So please tip them something. There is Beautiful scenery and the guides pointed out cocoa plants and other plants and animals as you saw them along the way. You then reach a point where you get off you horse and hike to the falls. This is a HIKE, there are steps but it is long and if not use to hiking it can be to much. But you can rest along the way, for it is worth it. The falls was Beautiful and worth the hike, you get to spend about 1hr at the falls swimming , taking pictures and the brave people where allowed to jump of a rock ledge into the waterfall pool. Then you dry off and hike back up to the horses. The guide get your horse and you ride down. Once you are back to the horse area, it lunch time. It’s a simple lunch buffet style and will fill you up. After lunch it’s back into the Safari truck, and then into the boat. The boat then takes you to Bacardi island, this island is actually an orchard but it shut down due to Covid right now. Here you get to have a piña colada in a pineapple, or you can purchase other drinks. You get an hour on the island to swim in the ocean and enjoy the beach. Our group would have of courses like this part to be long. Lol Then back to the boat you go. We hit some rain on the way back. The crew were amazing and nice about it all even gave out drinks again. Once at the dock you get onto the bus again. You drive for a bit, “sexy Papi” then let you know you are stopping at a little market. You can purchase some souvenirs, get food and drink. There’s even an area where you can order warm sandwiches. Then back on the bus for the long drive. You do stop at the same location as earlier to switch to a smaller bus. “Sexy Papi “ and all the drivers were very helpful to make sure everyone got on the right bus to take them back to their hotel. I would recommend this excursion to everyone. Just keep in mind it is a full day trip. We where picked up at 6:40am and dropped off at 7pm. It was so early that our resort did not have any type of breakfast ready for people with early excursions than 7 AM, however that’s on the resort not this excursion. I enjoyed every part of the excursion and the guide and drivers.

This is not a tour for drinking "bacardi" this is a tour of Bacardi Island. Overall excellent tour.. Horseback riding through rugged terrain, climbing to the waterfall and back up. Description needs to be updated to let customers know about physical requirements of excursion.

Long day but worth it

This is a very long excursion so come prepared with water, snacks, towels and a change of clothes if you want to! Pick up started very early from our resort at 630 and spent about 1.5 hrs picking up others that then lead to a larger bus with the entire group for the day. This bus ride lead to a boat that takes you to soana island. The boat ride leaves you drenched from the splashing of waves but they do give you a free poncho that helps! Once to the island you board another bus that takes you to the horses which was a little chaotic, if you do not have closed toed shoes they have water boots you can purchase. Each person is paired with a volunteer that works only off tips and stays with you and the horse the entire time. This is about a 25 min ride up to the water fall and back down each way. To get to the waterfall there is a lot of steps but so worth it. Here you can swim but it is very rocky def need water shoes. After your done at the water fall you head back down to a buffet lunch which was very good! After that you get back on the bus to get back on the boat and go to Bacardi island where you get about 1.5 hrs on the beach. This was beautiful ! Then you board back on the boat and head back to the bus again. All in all there is a ton of travel involved in this long day which makes it so tiring but there is a lot to see during the travel time on the bus. It was a very cool experience. Make sure you bring a lot of cash to tip we ended up running low. I would suggest 60-100$ You do stop at a gift shop on the way back home as well!

Lots of travel, but worth it.

Overall a great trip, if you know what you’re getting into from the beginning. Lots of travel, but the destinations are worth it. - They pick you up from your hotel around 6am. - You meet up with the other parties and you all leave together around 7am (so already 1 hour of travel) - You then travel 1.5 hours on bus to through the northern island countryside. You stop about 45 minutes in for a bathroom break and to stop a local store. The countryside is beautiful to look at. The guide was great and talked about different facts and history about the Dominican Republic. - After the bus ride you board a boat. Ours was pontoon boat. Not fancy at all; for some reason we thought it was going to be nicer, with bathrooms and snacks and stuff. They do offer some soda in a small cup. You then take a 45 minute boat ride up north to Semana. The boat ride is fun and pretty- our waters were kinda choppy which made it fun for us. - After landing in Semana, you are then on ANOTHER bus ride. This one is shorter- probably more like 20 minutes. This takes you to the ranch. - At the ranch you get on a horse which takes you down to the waterfall. The horse ride is awesome and the views spectacular. Our horse guides were fantastic. - The waterfall is incredible, and swimming in it is a dream. I honestly wish we could’ve spent all day here. You take the horse back up, then eat lunch at the ranch, which was great. - Then it’s the bus back down to Semana, then on a boat again to a beautiful private island where you get to spend a little over an hour relaxing on a beautiful beach. This was amazing too. - Boat back to the buses, buses back to the hotel. We didn’t get to our hotel until closer to 8pm.

Pay your workers

The best tour!!! I went on all the tours, Saona, Scape park, Buggy, Zipline, horseback riding. This is the best one by far!! The experience is authentic and so much fun!! Manuel and Alejandro helped us out and they were so great. My only complaint is that they don’t pay their workers. They set them up as volunteers so that all they get paid are our tips. Every one gets assigned one volunteer to assist and carry their things through the rigorous course. I did not like that as it seems the tour is abusing of their poverty. Make sure you bring cash to tip your volunteer.

Our guide Nacho was great! Very helpful and a lot of fun. The waterfall is beautiful and so is the island. The volunteers that helped with the horses were great also and went above and beyond to help. It is a long day but worth it. The steps too and from the waterfall can be challenging if you are out of shape or have medical issues so keep that in mind. Be sure to tip the helpers, drivers and most importantly your guide! They work hard to please and earn their living off of your tips! Be generous :)
