The trip was nerve wracking traveling in the slums, we did not think we would make it out alive. but the fort was nice, it took us a while to find a taxi that would be willing to take us there, all the taxis wanted to take us on the full 3 hour tour and not just to the one location.
hands down the best tour ever, best opperator, I wanted to visit Maho beach and watch the planes take off, we found a tour that did this as well as a lot of other venues. we spend a little extra time watching the planes and even was able to hang on the fence while one took off. we visited the banana daquirti tour and ended up at Orient Beach (the nude beach) 5 hours for $25 was the best money spent on the whole trip
wonderful and informative trip. booked independently and got a great driver who was very knowledgeable stopped often to discuss the local flora, fruits, nuts and plants
