La Romana shore excursions Q&A

My wife and I have heard great things about your company. We arrive into La Romana on a Carnival cruise ship. Can you offer us transportation to a local hotel and back, or can you drive us to Santo Domingo and take us on a sightseeing tour? There is no problem for us to pick you up and drop you off at the cruise terminal at the end of the day when you have finished your tour with us.
