Excellent overview of the history of Santo Domingo with a knowledgeable and thoughtful guide who adapted the itinerary to the preferences of the different tour participants. Note that as of early November 2020, the indoor areas of all museums, historic sites, etc., highlighted on the tour were still closed due to the pandemic.

Samuel is a great guide, he shares his knowledge about Santo Domingo in a very natural way. I enjoyed the walking tour of the old city, felt very safe around him, he is friendly, speaks great english and Spanish and took very nice pictures for my collection!

Was a good experience and great to have a local be able to answer our questions. We went around the loop given by the tourist desk for Zona Colonial, but the experience was made unique by stopping by a couple other locations. Our guide was awesome with questions and my group learned a lot. I would have also expected the guide the take care of purchasing museum tickets for us (though the prices for museums are pretty low). We got the audioguide for the cathedral and had free time to explore. The experience was very flexible which let us tailor to our interests. Would recommend if you like to have a guide when exploring!

Our tour guide Samuel was very knowledgeable and kind! He was fully bilingual and used a sophisticated level of English to inform us on the detailed history of DR and the colonial zone. I highly recommend this walking tour!!

Samuel was my tour guide. My traveling experience in the city wouldn't have been the same with out him. His genuineness and knowledge on the culture and sites seemed endless. Nothing felt rushed and he was always ready to answer questions. I learned a lot about this incredible little city, thanks guys.
