    Amazing Experience!! Both my kids had a blast from start to finish. We did the photos and they were nothing short of AMAZING! For anyone staying at Dreams Macao this surf school is right next door on the beach - super convenient.

    Don Alexander is a great guy. However, this excursion is nothing more than a $5 taxi ride to be sold to. It is not a cigar shop, but your typical Caribbean shop selling trinkets with an 8 foot sections of cigars that were actually made in the store, as well as fake Cuban cigars, but he is honest about them being fake. There is someone rolling cigars in the shop that you can watch, but I do not believe he speaks english. So you only get to watch him make them. Looking at the description of the tour now, I may have had expectations that were different than what they should have been.

    Anyways, Don will give you a free cigar that the cigar roller made, which was actually very good. And then he will proceed to sell you some cigars. He started out trying to sell me 100 cigars, which would last me many many years. I did enjoy the stick he gave me, so I purchased 25 cigars from him for $7 per and we also bought some gifts for family back home.

    I did smoke one cigar after I got home, and it was full strength. The rest will sit in my humidor for a while before I try another. If they are good, Don said we can order again over the phone and he will ship them to us, which I may end up doing.

    Just know exactly what to expect when you go. We left the resort that was 30 minutes away at 9:30 and returned back to the hotel at 12. Our resort is far away so we were unable to get trinkets and gifts anywhere else, so this was well worth it to us. This is an extremely cheap tour, so if it’s worth it to you to go, then go for it!

    Francessca and Javier along with the rest of the crew were great! We had a blast cooking with them. I would highly recommend this excursion while in Punta Cana. Everything was exceptionally clean and very well organized. Can’t wait to do it again!

    My girlfriend and I signed up for the Chollo coco (red snapper) class; as we wanted to take a class that would be something we wouldn't normally eat/prepare.

    Javier (our cooking instructor) was extremely knowledgable, personal, loves what he does, and his excitement for the tradition is infectious.
    Anthony (our mixologist) did not speak any English and he was still able to easily convey the concepts, steps, and passion for his craft.
    These two gentlemen made the entire experience my favorite night that we spent in Punta Cana.

    We started the night off with Javier giving us a history lesson on coffee and chocolate, and their roots in Dominican tradition.

    We then went to a stand up station where Anthony walked us through how to make a Mamajuana mojito. The entire time Javier was taking photos so we could concentrate and just have a fun personal experience. I'm not much of a rum drinker but it was the freshest, tastiest, and most refreshing drink I've had. Anthony then reminded us that he did nothing, and we made the drink ourselves. (I have since been searching online to get that brand of mamajuana delivered to our house.

    We moved onto a cooking station where all the meat and vegetables that we were using that night were prepared for us (a hidden gem in the experience). Javier then graciously walked us through, step by step, on how to make red snapper in two methods. First we made ceviche, then red snapper fillets cooked in coconut milk. He was so kind, patient, funny, and his excitement was infectious. I was worried that it would feel like a Home Ec class, but it felt like just a couple of friends making dinner together.

    Even though we have already been, when we visit Punta Cana again we are adamant that we are doing one of the other two classes they offer. We're very excited to get the chance to hang out with these gentlemen again.
