Terry came to the Dominican Republic in 2002 to do volunteer work and fell in love with Samana. Since then he has learned very much about the area and the people. And Spanish too! Now Terry and his friends offer the highest rated Excursions and Tours to every corner of the Samana Peninsula. Whether you are coming on a cruise ship or staying at one of our local All Inclusive Hotels, Come see why he stayed!
A Word From Terry:
Samana is one of the most beautiful areas that you can imagine, filled with wonderful people and tons of adventure. To enjoy it though, you must have a plan, especially if you are a cruise ship guest. When I accidentally started this business in Jan. 2008 I was just trying to send some cruise ship day business past my little restaurant in town. When I went online to see what I could do to accomplish that, I was blown away by all the negative comments about my new home. I felt bad that people didn't enjoy their visit. So I started to defend the Samana Peninsula with the disgruntled, past, visitors and set out with a mission to help better prepare future visitors so that they would enjoy all the things that I enjoy everyday while I live here. It turns out that I was pretty convincing. I went on to various travel forums, especially TripAdvisor.com and tried my best to help whoever I could. People started to ask me if I could just meet them somewhere and take them to see all the things that I loved about living here. That's just what I did and that's just what I continue to do.

Each cruise ship day and most hotel days I schedule any number of the excursions listed on our site. I go out with one of those groups and send out my trustworthy associates (really just a bunch of my friends who are tour guides) with the other groups. Our guides range from local Dominicans to American, German & Canadian ex-pats who have come to do volunteer work in the Samana area and now call it home while they continue to help the local population.
No matter which of our guides does your tour, we continue to get rave reviews on TripAdvisor.com and CruiseCritic.com . Take a minute someday and search for Terry & Samana on one of those site's forums or just Google us.
