Our Tour Guide Melvin was absolutely excellent. He told us a lot about the history of the Dominican Republic, the culture and the people. We were amazed at how much insight he had to share. We enjoyed every moment of the day. He made our day so special. My family and I will cherish all the beautiful memories of this wonderful day excursion.

Absolutely the best vacation experience I’ve had thus far. He takes you to these islands that effectively end up being completely private, delicious drinks flowing all day, intimate moments, and breathtaking views. We even ended up ending the trip with snorkeling which wasn’t a planned part of the trip but a very welcome surprise. Melvin was fantastic and this entire trip, including the price and waking up at 6 were more than worth it. Definitely don’t miss out!

If you are going to Saona island, do this tour. We got to every location before the masses which increased the beauty. I couldn’t imagine being on one of the boats filled with people. There were only four of us on this tour. It was absolutely lovely. Melvin was such a great tour guide. He seemed to be enjoying himself and wanted to make sure we got the best out of our experience. Don’t pass up on this tour.

Melvin provided my girlfriend and I an incredibly unique experience on the island. The stories and background he provided on the location were perfect. He made us feel comfortable and it was our favorite day on the trip. Highly recommend.

The places visited except the first one were worth it. Anyway it was a long and strenuous trip, 1h by bus and then in the early morning on the wet speed boat. Same destinations or similar trips can be booked for significantly less money. All in all, was the experience worth it.
