Overall, this was an excellent tour! Our guide, Diana, was wonderful! She was very warm, and knowledgeable. She provided interesting information about all the sights that we saw and answered any follow-up questions that we had. She made good recommendations for reasonably priced souvenirs, but not in a pushy way. Unfortunately, on the day that we were going on the tour, there was a last minute closure of the cable car, so we only got to go to the summit in an open air truck. (This was really unpleasant to me due to the diesel fumes.) But the views from the summit and the botanical gardens were amazing. The group was fairly large and we had 2 language groups. Diana made sure to give each group a full explanation. (We chose the bigger group because it was cheaper.) The only downside was that it was a bit rushed, due to size of the group. I would have liked to spend more time at the supermarket, and visit the Amber museum, but still an amazing tour! Highly recommended!!

Our guide, Antonio, was absolutely amazing. He was knowledgeable, attentive, and just overall a pleasure to be around. I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting Puerto Plata, wanting to get a real feel of the city. Jose, our driver, was such a joy to be around and made us feel safe driving around the city. They both made us feel so welcome and gave us a true experience for the city. Thank you both so much!!

First I was at the wrong location (second gate, hotel lobby should have been the pick up point) Antonio was really like my own personal guide educating me about the history of Puerto Plata. Cable car was great and there was never a shortage of rum!
