I am so thankful for booking an excursion with Just Safari. It was definitely the best part of my stay in Punta Cana. My favorite part of the excursion was traveling to a local farmers house to sample fruits, cacao, and coffee. If you are even considering this excursion, BOOK IT! It is well worth the money.

This was hands down the best excursion we have booked. Our group of 4 were all very impressed with the tour.

We booked the tour from home for March 26. Anja was excellent with communication about the trip. Make sure to check your junk mail for your emails!

We were picked up on time at our hotel in a Jeep Cherokee by Nino. Nino drove us out to the highway where we met with the rest of our group.

We were only one of 3 jeeps on this trip. This was very important to us to be in a small group. It made the tour very personable. We passed another tour company and there were over 10 jeeps all on 1 tour. Their jeeps were newer but they had their hard tops on so there was no choice but to keep them on all day. I loved that our top was down and we could enjoy the beautiful Dominican breeze.

My favourite stop was at Christian's farm. Christian is very entertaining and it was wonderful to hear about the processes for cocoa and coffee beans. Felipe was our main guide throughout the day. He offered a wealth of knowledge about the plants and uses for each on the property at the farm. We enjoyed the cocoa and had some mamajuana. The mamajuana tasted very different than what I have tried on other tours and at the Hotels. I quite enjoyed it.

Our next stop was at the horse farm where we rode through the river and zip lined on 2 different lines. If you are looking to go on a big ride then book a horse riding tour. This was a lovely walk though the river on horseback. The 2 zip lines were enough for me. It was a nice taste as to what you can expect zip lining.

We drove to a cigar factory/shop in a small village where we learned about the business. My husband got to roll his own cigar. The staff was knowledgeable and very nice.

Our last stop was at Macao Beach. It is a beautiful beach. My husband and I had been on a previous excursion 2 years ago. It is a beautiful public beach. There are vendors but they don't bother you if you don't want to buy. We had a traditional meal on the beach of chicken rice bean soup and plantains. The meal was great.

This was the first excursion in Dominican where I was taken to several places and there was absolutely no pressure to buy anything. It was fantastic. We did buy many items at Christian's and at the cigar stop but it was because we liked the products and we loved that we could buy from the source.

I want to thank Anja for organizing a great trip and keeping the day running smoothly. I also want to thank Felipe for being our knowledgeable tour guide. The people who work for this tour make it great. I also think it is unbelievable that they have their own photographer that documents your day AND they post it on Facebook for FREE.

LOVE this tour. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This is a must do if you want to really experience the DR the right way! Anja and Phillipe were amazing hosts and made the day stress-free. We have three teen girls and they said it was one of the best experiences they have had with all our travels from France to the Yukon. Our favorite part of the adventure was meeting and spending time with Christian Melo at his country home/farm. Money and time very well invested in life-long memories for our family.

This tour has everything in one, so if you’re looking to combine a bunch of activities in one day to save time and money it’s great. Not sure if worth $135 but if you look up ziplining, horse back riding, mountain/locals/history tour, etc. it would add up to more than that. We had to drive our own jeep which wasn’t what we would have preferred, the leaders of the tour offered to drive for us and ride in their car but then pushed us to drive to “experience the local culture more”. The roads were terrible, especially to the horse/ziplining place. I get carsick and I was so close to throwing up. We didn’t know “jeep tour” included driving the entire time starting from right near our hotel. Other than that, the people leading the tour were super nice. Everything was good to see up close and learn about, although the house they took us to might have been staged lol. Coffee, hot coco, mamajuana, and fruit tasting was great. Cigar rolling took like 3 min total, could have had a short 15 min tour of the process/facilities start to finish. The local meal was good but honestly didn’t taste much different from American food. Another thing, we were the only group on this trip so it was great to not have to worry about anyone else, but if someone else were on the tour like lets say a couple it would be annoying to have to wait for them even though they say thats a highlight of this type of tour. Overall it was a super fun day! And ultimately the people you’re with can decide to make it a fun time or not. Definitely would recommend doing and glad we chose this over other tours (2.5 hr drive to the capital and $70 to see monkeys seemed mediocre lol).

This excursion really does show you the culture of DR where people live and work away from the capital city (or your resort). Everything from visiting the small farm up in the mountains to the cigar factory (my favorite) to Macao beach, this trip is well worth the price. It's really nice to be able to drive your own jeep, instead of being stuck on an outdoor rugged "bus" like others were traveling in larger groups. I will have to say that I wish there was more ziplining as there were more lines available. Other than that, my wife and I really enjoyed this excursion and would recommend it.
