Good fun.

At first we got on the Chu Chu for the fun of it but actually for sightseeing it proved to be a good choice.

Very cheap price and very informative. Easy to find right in the main square of Zona Colonial. Very helpful way to orient yourself on the area.

We hoped on the train which took us around some of the streets of the old parts of the area. Very informative and fun to do. English speaking quests sat in the back part of the train and were educated of the surrounding points of interest by a tape recording.

An interesting overview of the a small area. The price was OK and the information provided was OK as well. However, we were told there would be a craft fair on Saturday morning in the park - which proved to be incorrect.

I was very disappointed in the condition of "the Conde Street" it was extremely in poor & dirty condition full of street vendors, far from what it should be restored.

Bring Disney World to The Dominican Republic. Unless you just can't walk no there no reason for this attraction. She the 500 year old town of Santo Domingo while still enjoying a padded seat.

This is the perfect way to get around the Colonial Zone if you've been walking all day and need a rest, or you have mobility issues, or it's bloody hot out, or you just don't want to walk every corner of the Zone. There's a roof above each car to block out the sun. It's open air. During my ride... More
