Get a history lesson, a workout and a super fun introduction to the city on this unique tour of Santo Domingo on three wheels. We’ll take you on a trikke adventure that will take you to some of the most important landmarks in the Caribbean, offer you the chance to try some of our favourite street food and get you off the beaten track to discover neighbourhoods that have barely changed over the centuries. Soak up the vibrant atmosphere of our picturesque city and make memories that will last a lifetime!

What is a trikke you ask?! A unique and fun blend of electric motorised bicycle and scooter, this awesome three-wheeled vehicle is a great way to cover a larger area of the city, ensuring you can squeeze in even more sights and bites on our morning tour! 

We’ll depart from the centre of the colonial district, spending some time getting used to your funky new mode of transport. 

As your local guide gives you the lowdown on the city, we’ll roll our way over to El Conde Street, a delightful pedestrianised area where you’ll discover charming snack bars, small cafes and atmospheric handicraft stores. 

We’ll then head down more charmingly narrow streets where you’ll learn about the street food us Dominicans love, and of course you’ll have an opportunity to try some of our favourite cuisine. 

The mouth-watering smells of food being cooked together with the soundtrack of enthusiastic street vendors hawking their wares and exhilarating merengue rhythms will give you a heady insight into the vibrant culture of our city. 

As we go, you’ll find out why Santo Domingo is known as the city of firsts and uncover the fascinating history of our city, whose historic centre is the oldest in the ‘New World.’ And of course, we’ll sample a variety of sweets made of coconut, pineapple and even sweet potatoes and peanuts! 

Our speedy mode of transport will then allow us to get off the beaten track and visit the neighbourhoods of San Lazaro, San Miguel and San Anton on the outskirts of the city. Remaining unknown to most tourists on the island, these charming spots offer the chance to step back in time and enjoy the traditions of a much missed bygone era.  

Finally, we’ll get refreshed with an ice cold local beer (or soft drink, whatever you prefer) from the Colmado, a grocery store that sells food in the mornings and then transforms into a popular bar in the afternoon and evenings where the locals gather to play dominoes, listen to music and chat after work. 

Once we’ve returned our trikkes, your Santo Domingo tour will come to an end. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay on our magical island.

This is your chance to experience the best Santo Domingo has to offer, alongside a local guide who can take you where the guidebooks can’t. You’ll start in Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone, the oldest European settlement in the New World and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Have your cameras ready — there’s history everywhere here and architecture that will leave you speechless. In Billini’s Park, in front of Casa del Tostado, you’ll hear one of the most romantic stories of colonial times. We’ll see the Caribbean side of the old city, admiring the many historic monuments, parks, and colonial fortresses as we walk, eventually getting to the old city walls that once protected the city from pirates.

Next, we get to one of the most colorful and dynamic areas of the city, the Chinatown of Santo Domingo, a community made up of the children and grandchildren of Chinese citizens who came to the Dominican Republic during the 19th and 20th centuries. Here, we’ll visit a local Chinese store and try some delicious Chinese refreshments that locals love. We’ll then follow the local pulse of merengue and bachata music to reach Calle El Conde, a bustling pedestrian-only street filled with colorful storefronts and small restaurants where we’ll stop for one final break, in the form of a cold Dominican beer. We end the day at Columbus Park, where you can feel free to further explore the sights, or we can give you tips on which restaurants to visit and even more secret local spots to check out.

If you are visiting Santo Domingo for the first time, this tour is especially for you! Enjoy an action-packed, three-hour introduction to the buzzing capital of the Dominican Republic, the oldest settlement in the Americas. As the modern face of the island with a population of over two million, there is far more to Santo Domingo than its fascinating colonial history.

Prepare to discover a different side to the Caribbean as we take you on a whistle stop tour of Santo Domingo’s many historic, cultural and natural highlights.

Your local guide will pick you up in an air-conditioned vehicle and whisk you off to our first stop, the Los Tres Ojos National Park, where we’ll soak up some of the island’s incredible natural beauty. This micro rainforest hides a stunning secret — a cave that shelters three interior blue lagoons. We’ll take a stroll down the steps to check out the caves and stop to admire the flora and fauna along the way.

Back in the car, we’ll make our way over to the more modern part of the city first, where you will see, amongst other things, the Columbus Lighthouse, which commemorates the 500th anniversary of Columbus's discovery of the Americas.

We will then drive to the UNESCO-listed Colonial District or Colonial City, where a large majority of the island’s cultural highlights can be found. As we go you will spot the San Jose Fort, Independence Park, the National Palace and the Altar of the Homeland, along with countless other national treasures. We counted 23 landmarks in total! Your local guide will explain about the city's history, nature and vibrant culture. 

You will also be able to marvel at all the many ‘first’ buildings that are scattered across Santo Domingo; the first convent in the Americas, the first Hospital, the first restaurant and so on.

Our last cultural stop will be at the stunning renaissance-style National Pantheon. Our tour will finish with a walk along the Calle El Conde and a stop at Columbus Park. Here we will leave you to explore the rest of our buzzing city.

Don’t forget to ask your local guide for restaurant tips and a few more sightseeing recommendations, there is always plenty to eat, see and drink on our gorgeous island!
