What to expect

Spain's first New World city, Santo Domingo is the Dominican Republic's history-packed capital. And its UNESCO-listed Colonial Zone is prime sightseeing territory. Travel back to the days of pirates, plunder and pioneering explorers with this personalised small group walking tour that ticks-off a 16th-century castle and a mansion built for Columbus' son.

Dominicans are rightly proud of their past, and you'll learn all about it during this two-hour tour. Arriving in Santo Domingo, you'll head straight to the UNESCO-listed colonial zone where modern high-rise buildings tower over heritage sites dating as far back as the 15th-century.

On a guided walk with an in-the-know local, you'll hear tales of the city's history as you pass by the Ambar Museum, the National Pantheon, the Gothic-style Santa Maria cathedral and Alcazar de Colon – a grand estate that once belonged to Christopher Columbus's family.

Elsewhere, thrill-seekers can dive into the protected marine reserve to snorkel among stingrays and nurse sharks, or hop on a kayak or paddleboard to glide over the gentle reef waves.
