An Exclusive Excursion like no other
Get to know Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic in the most exciting way excursions can. We will do a cultural tour in a 6-seater +driver VIP vehicle, with WIFi and more.

This excursion is for a maximum of 6 people, creating more advantages; pick-up is later than in the standard tour (enough time for breakfast at the hotel and time to rest calmly). You will also get to visit the Colonial Town in Santo Domingo in the evening, an experience like no other.

The city
Santo Domingo was one of the first cities founded in all of America. The city offers to its visitors plenty of culture and history, in addition to their typical cuisine. With us, you will visit the main monuments of the Colonial Town of Santo Domingo with a qualified guide who will tell you all about our continents history, taking you back into the past. We will complete the tour with the visit to Los Tres Ojos.

The streets
To take us back into Colonial times of the city, there is nothing better than touring the streets with distinguished constructions of the epoch, while our guide is teaching us about all the details and anecdotes that will make you experience the feeling of traveling to the past.

Colonial Town and Historical Monuments
On our guided visit to the Colonial Town we will visit all the major monuments: Columbus’ Alcazar and the Cathedral, wander through the Main Square and the Old Colonial Town. We will see a panoramic view of the Presidential Palace and the Columbus Lighthouse. On the streets of the Colonial Town we can witness the essence of the Caribbean ambience, its culture and its people. We will visit the Cacao Museum where we will taste a diversity of exotic flavors and try other products such as body cream, coffee, cocoa, etc. We will visit the oldest and the First Catedral in America, perfectly preserved and restored. The guide will also share anecdotes about the ceremonies that were performed. We will later revisit and discover the charming corners of this town full of history, in which one can perceive the atmosphere of the era as if they were back in time.

Visit to Los Tres Ojos
Right outside of the capital, we make a stop at Los Tres Ojos, a cave made of freshwater that forms and divides into three different lakes that can be admired from the surface without the need to enter.

- The Sulfer Eye, the first Eye:
This is the first lake that we will be able to see. Its name is due to the fact that in the background you will notice a whitened substance, therefore the people who discovered the lake thought that it was sulfur, but later, scientific studies showed that it was not sulfur but calcium and other minerals.
- The Fridge, the second Eye:
The second lake that we will visit has its name due to the low temperatures that it can reach, since it never receives sunlight. Its temperatures range between 15°C and 21°C. You may also find a handcrafted wooden boat to cross the lake of 5.4 meters of depth.
- The Lake of the Ladies, the third Eye:
The third lake has its name due to the fact that not long ago,it was used as a spa. For its discreet location and shallow waters it was only used by women and children.
- The Qwak:
This is the fourth lake, its name is due to a species of ducks and amphibians that are native to the area, along with the natural vegetation that surrounds the lake. The lake is 6.1 meters deep and it is the only lake that is outdoors, therefore is not recognized as an official eye.

About the Pick-up
It is ideal to reach Santo Domingo at about 10 in the morning, which mean pick-ups start at about 7. Depending on your hotel, the pick-up may vary between 7 and 8 in the morning.

Do you have to walk alot?
As it is a City-Tour we will be walking throughout the Colonial Town, the monuments and between the historical streets. The walks are calm and become very entertaining, in fact, this tour is recommend for the whole family, both children and adults can make the journey without much effort.

How will I be able to buy traditional products as souvenirs?
We will make a stop on the way to Santo Domingo in a Gift Shop, where you can find products such as Mamajuana, Dominican coffee, handmade cigars, paintings, creams and natural essences, etc..., and also in Santo Domingo, in the Museum of cocoa, you wil lbe able to purchase products if you wish.

About the Food
The food is a huge plus to this tour. We have chosen a colonial themed restaurant in the very center of the historical city, with entertainment and typical dances during you meal. You can even try the Dominican Sancocho (rice with beans and tropical fruits).

What to wear?
Short pants and comfortable footwear is most recommended.

How long is the visit at each monument?
There is no estimated time of duration because it always depends on the group, but it usually won't take more than 45 minutes to not lose the pace of the tour.

  • Particularmente disfruté de la excursion muchísimo. Me gusta conocer un poco a su gente y su cultura, y este tour es justo lo que buscaba. Totalmente privado y sin colas en los lugares que visitábamos, comimos de cine, el guía un 10, y el vehículo que nos llevó no puede ser más cómodo.
