Monkeyland was an amazing experience! Our guide Carlos was so much fun, he was very informative on the trip to and from our hotel. The monkeys are adorable and so fun to interact with. Leaning about the Dominican culture and how resources are made was very enlightening and made for a great afternoon excursion! I would definitely recommend it!

Very fun trip. Snorkeling was fair, visibility wasn't great as the reef is pretty close to the beach. It was a nice day, crew was great.

We (4 adults) took two excursions with Punta Cana Adventures and Tours during the last week of October. We took a snorkeling excursion to Catalina Island and a chocolate making class at Taino in Punta Cana. Both excursions were excellent! The staff on both excursions were professional and our company concierge Modesto provided timely updates as to our pick up times from our hotel. He provided the opportunity to both call or text in case of any difficulties. The snorkeling excursion to Catalina lasted a full day. The boat was spotless, staff was friendly, and professional, and the snorkeling gear provided was new, clean, and in excellent shape. We had a buffet lunch on a beach on the island which was tasty and plentiful, plus we had the opportunity for a fee to buy fresh fish or lobster which would be barbecued on the spot for us if we wanted. There is also a small craft market at the beach. The chocolate making excursion took place at a fair trade shop called Taino in Punta Cana, where we learned about the history of chocolate, got to make some chocolate bars and hot chocolate balls and had a chance to purchase fair trade chocolate, coffee and gifts. Taino is also the location of Punta Cana Adventures’ rum-tasting excursion and a dining excursion and a couple who joined us in the chocolate making said they had tried both and they were excellent. The tour guide Felix was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. We had had a slight problem with booking the chocolate making excursion and we were quickly contacted by the company’s cofounder who remedied our difficulty immediately and provided fast and professional customer service. Booking the excursions before we left Canada saved us the 18% Dominican Republic sales tax and we had the flexibility to cancel if necessary or change dates once we arrived at our resort. All in all, we found the company and the excursions to be well organized, friendly, and highly professional. 100% recommend!

When I went to book the Buggies and Monkeyland tour there was no option to book for our party of 3, it would only go up to 2 people for the reservation, I text/chatted with a representative and actually received a phone call from a gentleman from the company and they were able to create a special reservation for us for the 3 people and actually offered a discounted price for us. Great customer service by Punta Cana Adventures. Now, as far as the Buggies and Monkeyland tour, the transportation gentlemen were Awesome, they pointed out some local sights and were very friendly. The activities included in the tour, Monkeyland, Visit to a Dominican village with food samples, The fantastic Buggy adventure (You WILL GET WET!!!!) and the refreshing swim in the river was all in all one of the best experiences myself and my family ever encountered. Keep doing what you are doing Punta Cana Adventures! You guys are EXCELLENT!!!

Chocolate tasting excursion was very unique. It provided the opportunity to learn "hands on" how coco beans were transformed into a chocolate bar that you made and took with you at the end of the excursion. Facility was a bonus as it was located in and event room at the back of a souvenir store and you had time to shop at reasonable prices away from the big resort boutiques. Adventure tours as a company is 5*PLUS. They do the extra and follow-up to ensure their customers are extremely happy with their events. Tour companies tied to resorts and/or airlines may be more convenient however they DO NOT provide the level of customer service we experienced with Adventure Tours. We were very pleased we found them and booked our adventures with them.

While the experience itself was good, the van that we used to get to and from the event was dirty and I ended up ruining a pair of shorts because I sat in something sticky.
