Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful but needs to manage time better. Some of the other tour participants where spending way too much time idling around the sites and we missed out on the botanical gardens because we ended up running late

The vehicle was a little late arriving, but they kept us going late, so that more than made up for it. The driver was very competent in the crazy Santo Domingo traffic. We were actually the only people on the bus, so we got a very personalized tour from our guide. Our guide was fantastic!! His English was perfect and he knew an encyclopedic amount about the city. When the tour ended in the colonial district he even got out of the vehicle and gave us a short walking tour, even though his job was technically done. If you don't have a lot of time to see Santo Domingo, I highly recommend Grey Line.
