The VIP trip to Pico Duarte with Luis Franco is one of the most memorable experiences I have as an individual and within my family. I’ve had the opportunity to visit Pico several times with him, and the adventure has been top-notch. I want to highlight about Luis and his team, apart from all the details they accommodate and enhance to make this experience unique, their professionalism, attention to detail, punctuality, care for the environment, interaction with local monitors and guides, and the process of instilling in each participant an awareness of taking care of our nature, enjoying it, living it, and feeling proud of the Dominican Republic. The atmosphere on every trip has been wholesome and filled with camaraderie. I look forward to returning every year for many years to come.
