This charming half-day tour gives you a great overview of Samaná and allows you to indulge yourself in the sights and sounds that are unique to the Samaná Peninsula. Boarding your coach, you'll enjoy expert narration from your friendly and knowledgeable guide as they point out many points of interest along your route, including La Churcha, an historical church that was brought from England in the 1800's and re-assembled piece-by-piece in Samaná.
Traveling on, you'll find yourself at the Whale Museum where a short visit is in order. Although small, the museum affords a fascinating look at the history and mysteries of the humpback whales that have made an annual trek to the waters off Samaná for centuries. Leaving the museum, it's a drive through the scenic countryside to Villa Vicenta, where you'll be afforded a short photo stop. The views from this location are simply breathtaking so you'll want to be sure to bring your camera long.
Your final tour stop is the quaint town of Las Terrenas. Once a sleepy fishing village, this highly popular destination is now home to a variety of well-appointed gift shops and delightful, European-influenced restaurants and cafés. Free time will be allowed in Las Terrenas to explore on your own, or do a bit of shopping before it's time to re-board your coach for the return trip to the pier.
