Emilio is a "one man army"---if you need anything, he can find it. He is resourceful and can do more than provide a tour or transportation alone--although he does provide tours at a very reasonable price. We had been searching for a specific type of fruit and he not only sourced it, but also sourced the correct maturity. He can provide service anywhere in the Dominican Republic, not just Samana alone. His company was the only one which was traceable. Although he is not fluent in English, his level of English is far better than all other taxi drivers we have had during our 2 weeks in the Dominican Republic. We would recommend his company to anyone.

We were in Samana last week. We hired Emilio to take us on three excursions. He was very polite, his vehicle was very clean, and he was knowledgeable about the attractions of the area. He was always on time and never rushed us at all. He is a trustworthy person. We highly recommend him!

Emilio was so happy that he got to take us and show us around during our stay. The El Limon waterfall tour was wonderful, all thanks to Emilio. He took us to a family owned ecotours and from there were rode horses to the waterfall with some amazing locals offering guidance and help

We used Optima Taxi for transportation and booked the Limon Waterfall horseback riding tour through them as well. Emilio showed us great customer service and provided us with an excellent day trip. I wish we would have had more time to try their other offerings.
