- Transfer was good - exactly as it was coordinated! - Responsible TourGuide for the day was, Antonio and the driver's name was Moises - MEGA TYPES! Now to the tour (in our case 2 adults - approx. 205 €): - The minibus was occupied down to the last seat - I may have doubts whether the contact points have really been cleaned. - Said fever measurements were not carried out. - Hygiene measures, such as just putting on the mask, were already too difficult for the guests, despite repeated admonitions from TourGuide Antonio! - Nevertheless, he tried hard and also told a lot about the history of the DomRep, which was really interesting (in English and even partly in German) - The offer with the ZipLines (from putting on the equipment, the instruction and the implementation were very professional - It was a lot of fun! - Visiting the monkeys was very strict and orderly - there were really so many monkeys = D - The small tasting afterwards was ok
We were picked up punctually (after the Dominican period) from our hotel and took a safari bus to the zip-line (great fun). Then we went around the corner for lunch, there was nothing to complain about! Then we were taken a little further to the monkey farm, were totally cute, these little squirrel monkeys. Last but not least we visited a farm where we were shown how to process coffee, cocoa and coconuts and there were various products to buy. All in all a very successful trip and recommended. The only criticism: we confirmed our pick-up time by email, but received no response and since Dominican time means unpunctuality, we were a bit nervous as to whether it would work. So dear team, a little message whether the mail has arrived would be nice. Hence a point deduction from organization. Security -2 p. (Dom. Road conditions) can not be changed. Family without young children (15 years)
The ziplining was really good and the visit to the monkeys was species-appropriate and unique. The sales event in between was totally over and uncomfortable ... Still, definitely recommended! Good guide and great experience!
