Chu Chu Colonial, Santo Domingo

Hop on Chu Chu Colonial and embark on a journey through the 500 years of history of a Santo Domingo World Heritage Site and the first place Christopher Columbus set foot in 1492. During a 35-minute narrated tour aboard this train, you'll learn about the 16th-century buildings, colonial churches, and cobblestone streets built along the Ozama River which tell the stories of Spanish influence, the history of independence, and common people who once lived there. Do not miss the bronze statue of Christopher Columbus in the central square nor the 16th-century church there. Local shops and restaurants line the European-style pedestrian street Calle El Conde. Audio guides to the different routes are available in five languages: Spanish, English, French, Italian, and Russian.

  • We were 6 people who we spoke Spanish; We pay the service previously and got Chu Chu. The audioguide was reported in German! During all the tour, heard the explanation that what we were seeing, in German. When we call for the escort of the company, he shrugged his shoulders and told us we should ask in the office that the audio is in Spanish. (????) When it ended the nightmare in German, we call for in the office where we hire, the return of the money and, obviously, did not back us a penny. In addition, all employees (especially a woman, who left in to decry us) were quite rude and will cast the blame among them and ultimately ended up blaming us for not having warned that we were not talking about German. A disaster attention! They were $12 a shot away. Do not hire this service. Do walk walk, as we should do it after this scam of Chu Chu.
