False advertisement

, Jul 2019
This was a disappointing tour. It was falsely advertised. During lunch in the description ( and the reason why we chose this instead of other similar cheaper trips) was because it said it included lunch with red or white wine. This however was not true and the when we showed the description to the guide and the restaurant owner they said they have never ever included the drink so viator was falsely advertising the trip and they were not responsible for this. Additionally the tour guide was not open for questions during the tour. Overall not the best experience.

The Santo Domingo tour was good. We visited a couple museums that explained colonization by the spanish and received a good history lesson on the area. One of the reasons for signing up on this tour and not one of the other Santo Domino options was the trip to Cueva tres ojos (3 eyes cave). We did not stop at this area. I was very disappointed.
