Unfortunately I have to give miguel 1 star. Initially responses were great until money was collected. When I decided to cancel the trip within the timeframe to get back my deposit, I was told my refund was to be returned (360$), its been over 3 months of trying to get in contact with him and it has been a nightmare to get at least some of the deposit back. Miguel prides himself on being “reliable” but to me is not an honest man. Good luck if you choose him.
Excellent excursion, money well invested, I had a lot of fun, the food was very good, the attention was first class. I would definitely do it again
1. Bring your own water. They will offer water on the beach we’re they serve lunch and that is all. There will be an hour bus ride each way with long waits in the sun to board the boats as well as a 30 minute swim off the boat. NO WATER!
2. This is not a snorkeling tour. After you arrive at the beach the will pull the boat up to the an old pier and let you Jim out if you would like. Bring your own gear. They only provide the masks. No snorkels or fins. After a few minutes they will deliver you to the beach.
3. You will travel one direction in a very small Speed boat. You will have a bruised back from the ride the next day.
4. The other direction will be on the catamaran.
This is my second time doing the tours with this company and I can say that it is excellent. the attentions, the collection, the lunch, the fun on the boat. the animation guys cheered on the return trip, we brought cookies to see the goldfish. Snorkeling was great. Manuel the guide excellent person. Jacob the photographer very kind. I really recommend them
Pretty cool experience. Wish there was more to do at the island. Very beautiful! The water was great! Loved stopping in the middle of the sea!
Pros: The guides were good and catered to us non-spanish speaking tourists. The catamaran was nice and speedboat was sufficient. The lunch was good. The photo's the guides took were good, but expensive
Cons: There was no snorkeling. We chose this tour because it included snorkeling, and there was never any mention of snorkeling. The tour also said there were @ 50 guests. There were at least 80 crammed on this tour. It was very crowded in the shuttle, on the boats, and at lunch. The guides pushed selling items and especially selling their photos.
We really lived this tour. The guide was providing us with a lot of information and was very nice and happy. We loved the vibe on the boat, everybody was dancing and the drinks were good. At Saona we had a good lunch and good massage (extra cost of course). The only thing that I was a little bit surprised was to pay 60 dollars extra for some photos from airdrop. They should be aware that nowadays we have phones with very good cameras and we can do that. At least they should ask for a decent amount, not as much as the trip. The pina colada from the beach that we bought was amazing! About snorkeling I don t know what to say because i went to the water but nobody saw any fish! Thank you for the trip! ☺️
I think the guide is amazing. Best trip out of the 3 we had in 7 days. Super friendly and saona island is a must have. I already recommended this particular trip to my friend coming here in November
We enjoyed the island, although our time there felt short. Arrived around 12:20 then had to leave at 2:30. We left our resort at 7:30am and returned at 7pm. The trip there seemed unorganized, took us to a corner store where we waited for quite a while for another bus. Same idea on the journey home. But stopped at a KFC. Just felt like an overly long day and would have preferred more time on the island.
Manuel was the best tour guide ever!! He made us feel like his family. Also, beach bbq was Que Rico!! Yeeessssssssssssssss
