          Ok Trip, Needs Improve
          Overall the trip was fine but way too disorganized for our liking. Here were the cons to the trip: Our transport bus was way too cramped with little to no AC at the beginning, it’s hazardous and a potential death trap with locked windows. Although we were moved to a bigger bus with better AC and space, there were way too many people to be picked up and dropped off. Priority was made to mainstream hotels in Puerto Plata rather than those at the outskirts (Ie. Cabarete and Sosua). This means we spent four hours on what should’ve been a two hour commute to the island. The island is a sandbar with no space to sit down or shelter from the sun. The water provided may have been tainted/polluted which could result in poisoning for some folks. There wasn’t enough equipment for snorkeling and the guide did not wait for all clients to see if they were interested in joining. Our initial driver did not stay with us to provide us with transport at the end. We stayed longer than expected in the bigger bus until we got another driver. Despite these flaws, there were several positives. The employees really do go out of their way to be accommodating, our guide (Mendy) was super knowledgeable in both cultures and languages, the workers on the boat tried their hardest to help us feel safe while also having fun, and the food at the restaurant was delicious! My recommendations: the disorganization is a management/owner problem, not the employees! They are focusing more on maximizing profits rather than client comfort. I would suggest management focus on providing different packages based on location:one for puerto plate hotels, the other package for the outskirts (Cabarete and Sosua) with each different transport and guides. This should help with the disorganization. Build stronger and safer huts with seats in the sandbar, provide bottled water rather than tap water for guests. Provide an option button for snorkeling during reservation. This way guides can document who needs equipment and who wants to join. Overall there is potential in this trip tour but management has to be willing to make the changes to get better results and better client reviews. Hope this helps!

          Maybe try another
          We decided to book a separate excursion from our ship and found Anthonyinfotours. Not sure about the pictures people put up or if they have many other groups but our trip did not look like this. We arrived to be picked up in a vehicle with a cracked windshield, not a great representation of a reputable company - old and didn't start on first tries...Arriving at location of horses was sketchy. I did read other reviews and thought they were being picky, but actually they were right. It was they raining season, large ponds of water were on the trail we took to the beach not a problem, the horses did a great job of knowing where to go and were well trained - Paparazzi walked along (and ran) to get pictures, which they try to sell. You need Whatzup to have them sent to you - they were phone pictures - you can get your own shots while you are walking because Jerry will not let you gallop or trot. We arrived at the beach and they could just do so much more to upgrade our experience - clean up the beach. The trip was just ok. We had set our expectations low and they accommodated.

          What a BLAST
          This excursion was fantastic!!! They provided bottled waters twice and each individual made our trip to the DR such a blast! I highly recommend this company for the world class customer service! They even take your photos and videos for free!!!

          Amazing Experience!!
          This was the most amazing experience I have had in a long time. I was not sure at first as there was a lot of mud, but we got to the beach and it was so amazing. I loved that we were the only ones on the tour and not with a large group. We could ask questions from our tour guide who was also amazing. I will be back with more of my family as soon as I can so they can also experience. I normally don’t do reviews but this was worth the effort and every penny we spent on it.

          Horseback on the beach
          Had a great time horseback riding on the beach and going through the trails. A wonderful experience to be had while on vacation.

          Super Fun, tour guides made it amazing!
          This trip was amazing!! We loved it!!! Cannot say enough wonderful things about the tour guides! They helped us through the water and were without a doubt the best!!! I will say, there are spots where we went that the ONLY option was slide, which forced me out of my comfort zone and I’m glad I did it, but just know it’s strenuous! The hike up was tough, but so worth it! But GOOD water shoes, attach a GoPro to you and enjoy the memories!!! Also, our driver Johnny who picked us up from just outside the cruise port was awesome!!!!! He gave us the best rum and cokes, and largest Presidente beer I have ever see on the ride back!!!! Took us to awesome shops on the way back also.

          Very nice tour! I enjoyed getting to know the isla bonita despite the rain. The bus was very nice and had air conditioning.

          A fun, memorable day with good friends!
          Very good is a stretch, but average isn't a very fair rating either. Someone has taken a few liberties with the photos shown. The DuDu lagoon is black and not at all blue in the center as shown. The Blue Lagoon was very clear and cold - great place to take photos. The grounds are pretty. The beach you stop at is not as nice as shown - trash is everywhere - litter as far as you can see. They don't take any pride in their surroundings - you see trash all over the island - it's sad. We only got 50 minutes at the beach - could have used more time. If you have to use the bathroom they charge you at the beach. Not the other places. The lunch was pretty good. You spend more time on the bus going from place to place vs. actually enjoying each stop. The mangrove ride on the boat was interesting - we happen to venture out during a lightening storm - we questioned the wisdom of this (I'm a lifetime boater)... the guide was nice and informative. Our driver was great - bless him, we had monsoon rains on the way back to the resort and it took 4 hours to get back - a bridge was washed out and we had to wait for the water to go down. It was nice to do once, but no need to do it again.

          Best Beach Horseback Experience in Puerto Plata!!
          What a great time! Very LONG horseback ride on the beach and through nature. Much longer than others. Very much worth the money. Horses were extremely well trained for beginners as well as responsive for more experienced riders. Great fun all around! Highly recommended!!

          Skip It
          It was terribly crowded, all you could see was helmets, lifejackets and people. Many hours of waiting in line., definitely not worth the time or money.

          Awesome horses and guides on this adventure!
          This was a great experience. We own horses and know good horses when we ride one. All of our horses were fast walking, did what you asked without a fuss. I would trust these horses with young children or inexperienced riders. The horses will take care of their rider. The guides were great, too. Making sure that we had everything we needed. With horse experience we were allowed to lope.our horses along the beach. It was a blast for the whole family. We also got to stop on the beach and my young girls played in the water and we got a cold drink and a nice rest, before heading back to the barn. We would recommend this adventure to anyone!

          This was a really fun experience. Gorgeous beach and trails, helpful guides. Great price and accommodation time of pick up and drop off at port. Some improvement is needed for the directions where the pick-up location is once the guest comes through the port entrance.

        Puerto Plata City Tour - Trip Adviser reviews were 5 stars. Stops included Mount Isabel de Torres, Macorix House of Rum, Independence Central Park,
        Umbrella Street, Paseo de Dona Blanca (Pink Street), Amber Musuem & Fort San Felipe.

        To be honest with you, I wasn’t impressed with this tour. It felt like one giant commercial. You watched professionally produced 5-minute clips of the product and then they would try & sell you the product for 15 minutes (rum, chocolate & amber jewelry etc)

        Tour owner was very communicative and kept us informed on where to meet and drivers details. Driver started by taking us to several shops which we didn’t want, You could tell he was wanting us to buy so he got something from the owners. One was so bad the quality of souvenirs were rubbish. After telling him no more shopping we saw some good stuff and what we expected to see. Driver was talkative and friendly. Didn’t get to the cable car because of rain/wind so he gave us a refund. Recommend the tour except for the excessive shopping early on.

        Amazing tour of Puerto Plata including cable car ride to the top of the mountain where you can see the statue of Christ the redeemer and gain access to a beautiful elevated park with many plant species. After that you go to House of Rum for a tour and tasting. Other highlights including cacao/coffee/souvenir shopping and visit to San Felipe cathedral as well as Umbrella street.
        One of the best things of the tour was communication with company via WhatsApp as they confirm pickup with you and answer any questions as well as Fabio who is your guide and driver at the same time! He speaks English, Spanish, French, German and Russian and was a good tour leader and very friendly and knowledgeable! Gracias, Fabio!

        The cable car was great, something everyone should do once. Our tour guide, Fabio, was very knowledgeable about many things and did a great job relating interesting facts. He took us to the cable car early before any crowds arrived. We went in and straight up, no waiting. The rum tour was a little disappointing. They don't actually distill any rum there, just bottle it. There was no tour, just a short film about how to make rum. The tasting was quite good, though. We never made it to the cigar factory, as we wanted to make sure we had plenty of time to get back to our ship. We didn't mind though. We were the only two people, so Fabio was our personal driver for the day and would have taken us wherever we wanted.
        The one drawback was that there wasn't good directions about where to meet the tour guide. It was a pretty long walk out to the highway to meet a line of non-Carnival tour operators. Thankfully, there were many great other tour operators that helped up out with directions and one even called our tour to make sure he was still coming.

        I had a lot of fun. Fabio was right on time with pickup. He spoke really good English and Spanish. He was very knowledgeable about the city and I learned a lot from him. We had a Beautiful cable ride up the mountain, the guides there will help you take some good pictures. Then we visited a Rum house where Darwin gave us a helluva tour through the factory. I left feeling really good and now have a new rum habit of Mama Juana🤩. We then took a walk through the town, everyone was welcoming and warm ( not like other places where you feel like a tourist). And finishing off Fabio taught us some more cool history about the King and Queen and how impactful Rebublica Dominica has. Smooth ride, awesome people, well worth the price. 10/10 Recommend.

        Anthony was great. He answered my questions promptly. His directions were detailed. I had no trouble finding my guide, Diome. Diome spoke fluent English, gave background/history on locations we visited. He also took several pictures of me with the beautiful view surrounding. I had a blast and would only recommend this tour to anyone who would like to see more of Puerto Plata. Don’t settle for the Bay only.

        Had a wonderful day with Nathan, he did a nice job making sure we were comfortable and well hydrated. The highlight was the mountain cable car, don’t miss those views. Going down near the water and seeing the surf was pretty cool.

        Anthony did a great job communicating with us before the trip, the night before and the day of. These guys take care of business. 100% recommend them, thanks guys

        The communication from the company after booking was fantastic. Prior to us getting off the ship I was texted our drivers name and picture (Fabio), who was waiting for us with a sign outside the port entrance. We ended up being the only people on our tour, were provided icy cold bottles of water and were shown all over the town. The rum factory was interesting, the Amber museum, Umbrella street, the Fort and Pink Alley. Unfortunately the gondola was closed but we were refunded for that portion of our tour. Fabio was very amusing and a great host.

        Antonio was such an amazing representative, and Juan Pe was equally as fantastic of a tour guide. The city tour was amazing! The most beautiful views I have ever seen in my life. It was so nice to experience the city…. Save your souvenir shopping until you come here. The cable car up to mountain was a once in a lifetime experience. I absolutely recommend taking this tour. 5 stars, 100/10, BREATHTAKING!!!!!
