Audio Guide Dominicana is a new service now available in Santo Domingo that allows visitors to go on self-guided tours of the highlights of historic Santo Domingo. This is for people who like to travel independently but would still like some guidance. JC Colonial Service uses high-quality MP3 players that can be placed in a pocket. It gives users the freedom to make their own route, at their own pace. The offices are located at the Don Diego Port Terminal in Santo Domingo, Columbus Alcazar and Hard Rock Cafe in front of the Columbus Park. The audio tour covers more than 25 historical points in the Colonial City and is available in Spanish, English and French. Also included with the price is an informative booklet with a map, photos and suggested route, and admission to the Columbus Alcazar and Casa del Tostado. To take a break, a non-alcoholic beverage is included at Hard Rock Cafe. The price is US$25 + 16% tax. Offices are open from 8:30am until closing of museums, around 5pm. Visitors who are just passing through Santo Domingo can make use of their daily and weekly luggage storage service for an additional fee.
