Discovering Puerto Plata!

This was an awesome experience! Rosie was the best group leader and ensured we knew history of her great land! We didn’t just ride around, we got out and explored! Very personable staff made this a trip to remember!
Wonderful excursion

My husband and I recently took this excursion with 2 family members. We were on the Holland America cruise ship. We had a little problem finding the meeting place with our tour guides but everything went smoothly after that. Our tour guide, Winston and his driver and assistant were wonderful. We took a tour of the city. When we got off of the tour bus, Winston and his assistant stayed with us the entire time. We felt very safe. It started to rain when we got ready to head to the beach, but we didn't mind. The weather was still warm. It continued to rain when we got there so we had lunch (which was very good). After lunch the sun came out and we had about an hour in the sun on the beach. Winston safely escorted us back to the ship. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great visit with Miseal as our guide

The walk to the shuttle was long and they did try and take us as far back to the cruise port as possible. We saw a couple sights and spent lovely time at the beach relaxing and swimming. Our guide was friendly and knowledge and the rum punch was a added bonus. Yes he did not want us to buy anything from the shops but it's only because he didn't want us to get ripped off and I think that's good. Would have liked time to explore the fort though

The excursion was nice kinda laid back more of what we were looking for! Rosie our guide was very sweet and informative. Ended the tour with relaxing on the beach !
Great tour guides but not much to see on the excursion

When registering for the excursion, the price indicated adult ticket however had nothing for a child. When we arrived, we were told we had to pay for my 5 year old granddaughter. The owner was reasonable in the charge however the website should indicated number of persons and not specify adults leading one to believe that children may be free. The tour guides (Alex and Alexander) were great host and they were very knowledgeable and helpful during the excursion. The tour does not offer much to view however we enjoyed the beach experience. There was no time allocated for shopping at the gift shops in the city. I would recommend paying to just go to the beach.
