There are many different chapels inside the large structure. The stained glass is magnificent.

The full day tour was awesome! Santiago, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable & friendly. He did the whole tour in English & Spanish! Brito was a safe driver because some of these motorcyclists are crazy in Santo Domingo. The tour was a great learning experience, it wasn’t boring & the lunch was delicious. The bus was clean, the AC was pumping & the free water was cold. If you take the tour, ask for Santiago & Brito, you won’t be disappointed.
Fun day with Santiago y Brito

This was an excellent value! Santiago was a FANTASTIC tour guide and Brito were fantastic drivers-- driving in the DR is hectic but I never felt unsafe on the bus.

Santiago had so much knowledge to share about the history of Santo Domingo and I appreciated that he shared things in both English and Spanish. He also offered French!

Lunch was very good and we enjoyed getting off resort to experience the city and do a little souvenir shopping in places we knew had been vetted.

Recommend it if you have a day to explore so cool architecture. Being comfy shoes!!
Great tour to Santo Domingo
