A place full of history
Excelente el tour por la zona colonial. Great tour thru the Colonial Zone.
Excellent trip in the colonial zone.
A fun tour around Zona Colonial in a train like cart. A nice way to sit down and relax while seeing the city.
This is a great way to enjoy the Colonial Zone. Native English narration and guide is available; the ride is all you need to view around.
Great option to go around the historical old city of Santo Domingo. The zona colonial is the foundation of the new world where Christopher Columbus established. Then Nicolas de Ovando and Diego Colon governed the city and from here led the occupation of other lands in the Americas. Now days the area is been under reconstruction and bringing back some of the original aspect of the city as well making it more attractive for tourists.
I already saw the small train cruising through zona colonial a few times during the day and as I was taking a day off from excursions today I decided to give it a try even though I thought of it as a tourist trap since the first time. They advertise a tour of 45 minutes for RD$ 500 (RD$ 250 if you are dominican). Well, price wise it was correct - 45 minutes not really; it was more like 35 minutes and everything was played from a recorder where I assume some parts were skipped. The person on the english part of the train didn't even understand basic english - she replied the girl who asked a simple question in spanish that she doesn't understand it. Considering all facts I would rather do whatever day trip with ATA excursions than pay 25+% of it for a train cruising tour through zona colonial.
The best. Colonialism at its finest.
Very unique place
