She walked us around town a bit and even came to our hotel so that we could make payment! Front door concierge service all they way!!!

After reading several reviews of this service I decided to seek out Linda to book our outings. Walking through town there are several offices for this service with pushy sales people which really put me off. One evening we were sitting at the Check Point Bar and who happens to stop in for coffee but Linda, it seeme her office... More

We booked the Jeep Safari through Mels Tours it was a great day out and the waterfalls were fantastic. It was half the price of the trips offered to us by our travel rep. Linda was really helpful and was always letting us know of special offers on other trips. When we booked the Jeep Safari we only had to... More

Because the weather was less than spetacular the week we went to the DR, we decided to check out other attractions besides the beach. Linda was fantastic! We met her on the first full day we were there (Sunday) and she gave us a walking tour of Sosua before setting us up on the two tours we were interested in.... More

Every year we go to the Dominican Republic and my most favorite thing to do is to find a MEL TOURS office and have them arrange a tour for us on the Ocean. You can go on a Party Catamaran for $70 bucks each. For this small price you are picked up at your hotel; you are taken to the... More
