I have read that it may be helpful for a tourist to hire a private guide for a day in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Similarly, I have read that one could higher a taxi driver to be a private driver for a day.
Is it indeed reasonable, or common, to hire private guides or drivers for either a part of a day or a whole day in Santo Domingo?
If so, how would a visitor hire a guide or driver, and at about what cost?
My thought is that with a guide or driver, assuming this person seeks to be helpful and is reasonably informed, our trip could feel substantially more smooth.
I would appreciate any suggestions, comments, opinions... or challenges to my premises...
