Beatiful Day Trip of local history and Saona Island

A long day definitely not for babies and small Children (a lot of alcohol on the catamaran) Tour of Altos de Chavo'n beautiful! Our guide Benjamin was very informative and friendly! The catamaran ride to the Island was a large party with dancing and alcohol. I saw a mother take her children to a different part of the boat. We were nervous with no life jackets. Saona Island and the national park are gorgeous! dinner was average as it has to be shipped earlier. then we left on a large speed boat to a natural pool you can walk with starfish! We all wore Life Jackets and we were very pleased with attention to safety! The starfish and the water is so amazing! I would have given a higher rating except the van was 30 min late picking us up with no notice and we were concerned we missed them and the lounge chairs at Saona were dirty with bird poop! all in all a great experience we loved our Guide Benjamin!

This was the complete package. We had previously booked two trips using a local vendor. We found the transfers took most of the day, changing buses at various meeting points with no real guidance. At one point we had to get off one bus and onto an other on a highway interchange where the drivers took our photographs for reference! Very disconcerting. Rest assured booking your trip with Get Your Guide is haste free and worry free, our local contact called in advance to tell us the pick up point and time and that was it, onwards to our destination! What a destination! Catamaran cruise to a beautiful picturesque beach. Stopping for a swim on a sand bar, awesome lunch, plenty free booze. Everything taken care of by our attentive and informed guide pappi. Great day out and certainly the best trip we had during our stay in paradise.

Excellent organization, beautiful island

They did really theirs best fulfilling "mission impossible". 60 km in DR is a fortune of time. Organization was perfect. The island is beautiful, the beach is splendid, but there are too many boats near it and it is almost not possible to swim. The trip with the catamaran was a nice party, also the way back with the speed boats and the short stop on the second beach. Same is almost everywhere in DR, so maybe 3 hours bus drive is a time to save ...

El mejor tour! Nuestro guía turístico Benjamin fue el mejor! Durante el tour Angel fue nuestro fotógrafo el fue genial. el Cateman ride fue muy divertido, bailamos y el show de entretenimiento fue super. Si estas en Punta Cana te recomiendo tomar este tour a la Isla Saona! Definitivamente los mejores!

The trip was well organised. We really enjoyed the natural swimming pool and took some great pictures there. Saona island itself is very beautiful to visit however it felt a bit crowded, so we did not get to relax that much laying in the sunbeds. Catamaran and speedboat trips were also very enjoyable.
