Special Acknowledgement-Non Scrap

My husband, son, his fiancée and I just returned from a 7 day Eastern Caribbean Cruise aboard the Norwegian Pearl. One of the things Joey and Elizabeth wanted to do was horseback riding and the waterfalls in Samana, Dominican Republic. When inquiring about this with NCL, they were unable to give a definitive answer as to whether they were offering this excursion or not. After doing a search on Cruise Critic, I found the name of Terry Lee Bandi who does tours in Samana with one of them being horseback riding and a visit to the waterfalls.

I read quit a few positive comments about him and his tours that I decided to send him an email to get feed back to share with Joey and Elizabeth. He was quick in his response and very helpful with information.

Terry and I had several emails going back and forth and with each one I received I was more convinced that Joey and Elizabeth should book with him. I only wished that I too would have been able to do this excursion especially after hearing in the excitement in Joey and Elizabeth’s recap of the day’s activities they experienced.

Terry did mention to me that if I had the opportunity, to pay a visit his restaurant about a 15 minute walk or 3 minutes by motorcycle rickshaw. Joe and I took a ride where we met his lovely wife, her father and cousin. As of this writing there is no food, but I’m hoping they have the opportunity to see their restaurant grow.

If you plan on visiting Samana, please check out Terry’s tours by first visiting him at
