Went on this tour on 2nd March and thoroughly enjoyed it. Angel our guide was the perfect host, starting the morning by handing out large travel mugs and filling them with rum & coke - proper Dominica...n breakfast �. Visited coconut plantation followed by a drive-by past one of the local schools they support, explaining the fundraising and support they give to local schools while on the bus as they're clear this part of the tour is about raising awareness and not interrupting the children's lessons. Then went to a plantation where they grow a wide variety of herbs and spices, with their main crops coffee and cacao and how they grow and process them. Lunch at the rescue centre was very welcome, especially after the frequent drink refills! Quick look at local crafts of cigar making, painting, woodcrafts and rum production, with a tasting session thrown in for good measure. Then off to the beach for a chill or boogie board in the sea. Thanks to Angel and Leonardo (fab driver) and would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the real Dominican Republic. See More

We went on this tour yesterday and it was truly amazing. Got to see so much of the island. Our tour guide was so full of information. We learned all about coffee and coco making also about coconuts. O...ne family is also kind enough to let this tour go through their home. Was very beautiful and yet I was thankful for what I have. We were able to buy beautiful things made by the people at very reasonable prices. We also where treated to a wonderful lunch. We also got to see different varieties of animals. At the end of the tour we were taken boogie boarding to a beautiful beach �. This company is so great that they sell hats, clothing, beach bags and waist bags and the profits go to the schools to buy uniforms for the children and also school supplies they may need. Highly recommend and hopefully you will get Leandro as tour guide and Vladimir as driver, they are truest a lot of fun. I feel like we made friends for life with these two. Thank you to so much. This company truly has two assets with these young men. Thank you so much for a wonderful day! See More

Sin palabras. Una de las mejores excursiones, si no la mejor, en el area de Punta Cana! Makes guests look closely behind the 5*-all-inclusive- world into real Dominican life. Local food, local product...s, stops along public school, public hospital, colmados, campo, etc. Mixed with fun beach times at picturesque Playa Macao. A bit of everything. Our guide Ruddy was funny, yet very knowledgable and apparently very proud of his heritage, explaining a lot in detail and sharing both facts and emotions. Wilson drove our truck safely at all times. Highly recommend this tour to everyone, no matter if newbie or return visitor to Dominican Republic! Gracias!!! See More

The best tour on the island! Not only do they provide an amazing experience for customers, they give back to the less fortunate in the country and the school kids, so great work all round! Amazing w...ork! Would recommend to anyone going to Dom Rep! Done the tour twice now, and would definitely do it a third! Thank you! Anyone who does go, make sure you get some little things for the school kids, like colouring pencils and candy, costs us a little, but a big deal to them! Thanks to Nico and Angel our guides and driver for a great day out! See More

The absolute best day of our recent visit. Rudi and Wilson looked after us throughout the day and filled us with info and drinks. To get out and about meeting proper locals was so rewarding. The coff...ee, coconut, cacao, cigar experiences were amazing as was the lunch provided. Visiting a 'local' home gave us the opportunity to pass over small gifts to 'Mama' for the children. Icing on the cake late afternoon boogie boarding on Macao beach before returning to our hotel ***** for sure See More

It was an awesome trip on a day with a little rain. We had Hector as driver and Ruddy as our guide and both were so great. On all vacations and tours I made, this was the best of all. Beautiful countr...yside and you can learn so much about Punta Cana and the Dominican Republic, the people, their traditions and their crafting. I recommend this to everyone, even if you don't speak English very well or Spanish, you can get so much out of this tour!
Not to forget the excellent lunch and the drinks you get for free...
Thanks Ruddy, thanks Hector!!! It was a breathtaking adventure! Maybe we'll see each other again in a couple of years

We did this trip on 6th April 2018 and couldn’t fault it. It was an informative day out and we really felt like we got to see the true nature of the Dominican Republic countryside. Our guide, Leandro,... and driver, Leo, made a great team. There was plenty to see and you could buy the products (coconut oil, coffee, cocoa, cigars etc etc) but it was never a hard sell. Lunch was great too, even for the vegetarian amongst us. The only slight criticism was that we didn’t actually go into the school, just pulled up outside. However, Leandro spent a lot of time explaining the education system, how the company sponsors the schools and uniform and that the visits to inside the school had to stop as the kids were more interested in getting $$ and sweets from the tourists than listening to the teacher!! One of the best holidays tours I’ve ever done. See More

In June while I was attending the Romance Travel Forum in Punta Cana we had the choice to either do site inspections or go on an Outback Adventure. I am so glad that I chose the Outback Adventure as ...I had a wonderful time and now can confidently refer all my clients to this tour when they are in PC. Because there were a lot of us (Travel Agents) we had two of the jeeps. We all brought tons of donations for the school and the children and for me that was the highlight of the day, when we went to the school with our donations. All the staff members who were with us that day were amazing, funny, always made sure we were not thirsty, supplied us with information about the areas we were visiting, fed us, etc. I could go on and on about our day... but bottom line ***** 5 star company all the way!

We did many excursions on our holiday but this had to be the most worth while. We were in Jesus's group and we all enjoyed it we had our children aged 7 and 9 it was age appropriate.

Visited yesterday and had the pleasure of having Angel and Papi as our guide and driver. Would 100% recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area had literally the best day, cannot fault this trip! ...Angel was an amazing guide, he had the bus laughing for the whole day. Lunch break during the day was amazing, the food was fresh from BBQ and super tasty!! Constant alcohol, water or fizzy pop on board the bus whenever needed and also got a souvenir cups to fill up throughout the day. So much to learn about on this trip and so many nice people to meet. A really eye opening experience, plus body boarding in the sea at the end of the day was just a bonus, cannot thank Angel and Papi enough for the fab day we had! See More

Went on this tour in April 2018 and it was amazing. Angel was our tour guide and taught my family a lot about how many live in the Dominican. We truly loved it thank you Angel and Raymond (driver).

I had an amazing excursion adventure with Manny and Raymond. The information provided and the sights seen were wonderful. Our first stop was by the road we were on when Manny picked a pod from a tree ...on the left side of the road. He showed us what was in it and explained it was Paprika, something most of us use in our kitchen yet have never seen this way. We then visited a K thru 8 school where we met some wonderful children who were very excited to see us. Many schools are being updated and this was one of them. Very nice. We then visited a nice family in the "Outback". It was so wonderful to see how self sustaining they are by growing everything they need right there at home. We saw Avocado trees, papaya, bread fruit, banana, plantain, cocoa, coffee, sugar cane, basil, oregano, pineapple, orange, etc. We visited the family home and cooking area. This was followed by a trip to the Outback Adventure Headquarters where we ate a delicious family style meal consisting of Chicken, Rice, Pasta and Beans. Salad was available as well. It was all delicious. Beer, Soda and Rum was available during the entire excursion from the time we left the port until the time we returned. The final stop was at a beautiful beach where we spent about 30 minutes or so. You could get a massage there if you desired, all included in the trip. It was a great day and a I hope to do it again when I bring my granddaughter. Great job by Manny and Raymond. Thank you. See More
