          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!

          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!!!

          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.

          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.

          Perfect tour if you have limited time in Puerto Plata
          This was the first stop on our cruise and we only had limited time to explore the city and that's why we went with a tour. My husband and I enjoyed greatly this tour, which was more fun and informative than expected! We were the only ones and our tour guide Agustin even met with us earlier than scheduled because our ship arrived early. He was the friendliest welcome to the Dominican republic! He and the driver Samuel took us around the city, seeing all major sights (pink street, cathedral, rum distillery, chocolatery), he didn't rush us and gave us plenty of time. He answered out questions and even impressed my German husband with his knowledge of German, haha. We went to the mount Isabel and then also to the fort. We saw and experienced more than expected and we recommend this tour!

          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.

          Puerto Plata cruise stop
          Oh my goodness should sum it up. We had an awesome day with an awesome tour guide that really helped us see as much of the city as we could cram into our short visit. I should mention our tour guide was very easy on the eyes and we probably would have followed him off a cliff which I’m pretty sure we just about did with the whole cable car experience. It was a wonderful experience and we would definitely recommend them to anyone visiting the Puerto Plata area.

          Choppy waters made many sick. Friendly staff nice clean boat. U need a dingy to get to the big boat. Lunch was very basic. Open bar but too sick to enjoy it.

          Don’t Waste Your Time or Money
          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)

          Overall disappointing
          Good - pick up was on time. Driver was good and fun. Beach we ended up at was beautiful and the beer was nice and cold! Now for the bad. Just so you all know, I’m generally positive about my reviews. I’ve been on excursions like this in Mexico and numerous other countries. Overall, I guess I was just sad. Sad for the people in the bareo (neighborhood ) who have to listen to our noisy buggies go by their homes at least 4 times a day. Hopefully they’re compensated in some way. Sad to see all the garbage everywhere. I realize this is a 3rd world country, but folks (including us tourists) need to be more mindful of the plastic garbage we contribute to their countryside. Disappointed with the buggy - steering was not working properly. Paid US$5 for bandanas - we’d already overpaid for the buggy - couldn’t they throw in a .50 cent bandana? Seat belts were jimmy-rigged together. And honestly, the guides were just there to get us there and back - no fun interaction with them. Just wanted us to rush throw the puddles - which btw - if you have a queasy stomach- are difficult to handle. Smells were anywhere from dead animals to cow manure - which I’m pretty sure we were driving through. Then a good 1/2 hour wait for our ride back. I wish these fellows had a good place to ride up in the hills, away from traffic/households, where it’s clean and streams are fresh. Sorry- I hate to write such a bad review, but I’m afraid this one was a huge disappointment

          Great trip on the Cable Car in in the City
          We wanted to ride the cable car which was not offered through our cruise ship. I found this tour and it was perfect. Our driver, Diomi Espinal, was so kind and knowledgeable. He knew the right time to get to the cable car so we would not have a long wait and would have plenty of time for a city tour. We had a great time.

        We had a great time on this tour! We chose to go the beach route, so we started on a dirt road near Playa Dorado, rode through the shady forest and onto a stunning beach with clear water! The guides were very helpful and our group of 6 felt very safe and had a lot of fun! We took a break on one of the beaches to enjoy some drinks and did some shopping with the locals (not included in price). The horses seemed fairly well taken care of, and when I asked about their care and upkeep, the guide told me that they work 1 day (with a long break in the middle of the day) and take 2 days off to rest. They do look skinnier than horses in the US, but our animals are pumped full of grain and the horses here mainly eat grass and other organics.

        Was a pretty nice ride horses were so thin … Enjoyed it have been on way better rides in Costa Rica , most annoying thing was these guys take pictures the whole time and then at the end of it they want you to pay 3000 Dominican dollars for them to send you all the pictures on WhatsApp we took our own pictures. We really didn’t want their pictures but we told them we would pay 2000 we really did not want them. We did it as a favour to them but they were so pushy about it. So annoying.

        Stunning trip. Great guides, beautiful horses. I did feel bad for the horses going uphill on a really tricky terrain in the heat. But the guides seem to take good care of them and I’m happy to support local. If you are heavy, consider skipping this. The horses worked extremely hard and are not very big by North American standards.

        Timeline: 20 mins from pickup point to riding location. Little waiting before starting to ride. Ride included trail/road through woods before continuing on the beach. 20 minute break near the beach at picnic tables. Food and drink available ($). Return was reverse of first half. Total duration was about 3.5 hrs, pier entrance pickup to dropoff. Pier entrance is a lengthy distance from the boat (half mile, along pier then the myriad of shops).

        Opinion: If you are not an experienced rider (I'm not) this would be a good tour for you. The horses are trained to be gentle and consistent. I was able to coax mine up to a trot a couple of times, which was fun!

        Guide: Excellent. I am almost deaf, so when he wanted us to turn or stop, he always came up to me to be sure I understood. Not all guides are that considerate.

        A really nice and unique excursion! My husband and I each rode a horse and our 5 year old rode with one of the guides. And then you can take the house for a “swim” in the ocean once you get to the designated portion of the beach. It was our daughter’s first experience riding and she had a blast. The horses are gentle, very well behaved. Anthony who was our contact person was very attentive and made special arrangements for us since our cruise ship arrived in port slightly later than the rest of the group. Would do this excursion again.
        PS: for a small fee, there is a person available to do photography (nice digital camera) for you while you ride the horses. Definitely worth it to avoid fussing with a camera the entire time.

        I can't tell you how much my wife and I enjoyed our time seeing the beach on horseback. The host was more than accommodating when I found out our cruise ship arrival date had changed and made sure that the person who was supposed to pick us up (Victor) found us amongst the crowd of about 100 people finding their excursion guides. I had a slight concern in my mind of horses and the immense heat of mid-day. As I approached the area of the horses, I noticed they were being greatly cared for by the workers and our horses had been gently sprayed with water which was retained by the coats for quite a while. A cooled down horse is a happy horse. If you do this excursion, ask for Victor to pick you up at your location. He was so very kind to us and we got to see many sites on the way. Dress in dry-fit clothing, the humidity and sun was quite extreme in the first of June. Again, we had a great time!

        The horseback riding so FUN. You are not riding horses the whole 3 hours. Maybe like 1.5 to 2 hours. There was a spot at a local restaurant along the beach and the fish we had there was wonderful!! We also had an authentic Pina colada with fresh pineapple and it was sooo good. The scenery is beautiful and our tour guide was amazing as well. It is not far from the resort area like 2 minutes.

        Anthony has been absolutely incredible! He coordinated every detail for an amazing experience, and even though our ship changed the docking location, Anthony himself went to the new location to pick us up, on a Sunday! He was also flexible with our needs and really kind. We don’t have enough words to describe how good his service was.

        The beach is wonderful, and our tour guide Delfin was so nice to be with, helpful, and had everything under control. It was so much fun to gallop on the beach with our horses Huracán and Moreno. We look forward to doing this again in the future.

        Anthony’s horseback riding trip on the beach in Puerto Playa was an unique experience. It was easier and less expensive than the cruise excursions. Anthony met us on time and gave us an interesting introduction to the Dominican Republic on our way to the trail. Once there we met Antonio, our guide, who made sure we were correctly saddled up and understood how to direct our horses. What I appreciated about Antonio was how he allowed the serenity and beauty of nature dominate the experience. We had a good amount of time riding along the beach and had time to rest, have a beverage and the option to go swimming before heading back. It was a wonderful & memorable experience!!

        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!
