What You Can Expect

Visit a tobacco factory to see how cigars are made! Your 4-hour shopping tour in Santo Domingo begins with hotel pickup by air-conditioned minivan. Your guide will whisk you around some of the most popular spots to shop and help you find the perfect souvenirs of your Dominican Republic vacation. Depending on what you’re looking for — whether it’s clothing, crafts, jewelry or paintings — your guide points you to the right places and provides interpretation as needed.

First, soak up the colonial ambiance as you explore stores in the UNESCO-listed Colonial Zone, the city’s central historic neighborhood dating back to the 15th century. In the sprawling Colonial Market, find a wide array of locally made crafts under one roof, including jewelry, cigars, liqueurs, and Taino and ceramic art.

At the Amber Museum, learn about the gem’s history and creation, its varieties and mining processes. Dominican amber is known for its transparency and fossil inclusions; consider purchasing a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry made by expert craftsmen from the museum’s stylish boutique.

Visit Tabacalera La Matilde, a cigar factory where, during a tour, you’ll gain insight into how tobacco is processed and turned into cigars. Stop by the factory store and pick up a few for friends and family back home.

Wrap it up on Conde Street, known locally as Calle El Conde, a pedestrian-only cobblestone street. Browse through colorful artwork, larimar jewelry and other luxury items. Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
