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.

  • Expected me a tour something more extensive, not pass three times on the same street, in addition I hico lot of grace that the audio was a radio holding a guy so everyone listened, surrealistic.

  • Recommended, each 1 hour leaves this scenic train from the square where is the famous cathedral Primada. It is a guide which goes explaining different language sites that passes. Santo Domingo is rich in heritage and culture and everything it will telling and showing. After this walk, which should be more pay in Dominican peso which in dollars, you can then delve into the areas of greatest personal interest. Worth-

  • Very simpatichnenkij little engine, it can bypass all colonial (historical) part of the city. For lovers of history itself is and should be.
