For a real taste of Caribbean culture, look no further than this full day bus tour around the Dominican Republic. You'll visit remote villages and markets, while learning all about local produce and history.
Your adventure kicks off as your guide regales you with the history of the island while we journey through cattle grazing lands and visit a rice plantation. You'll also visit a small rural school to meet its students. Check out the views of the Cordillera Oriental mountains before arriving at a plantation for a tour on the production of coffee, cocoa and more.
It's then on to Higuey, to see the famous Altagracia Basilica – a pilgrimage site because of its miraculous image of Our Lady – and wander around the market. There's also a visit to a cigar factory and sugarcane fields before rounding off the day with a long lunch.
