This was an excellent day excursion, you'll get to see quite a few different sites and it's a great introduction to the city. I didn't feel rushed, we had enough time at each stop. Highly recommend checking this one out if you're looking for a relaxing excursion day with some exploring and tasting involved. Lots of great opportunities for photos as well. Juan P. and Manuel were awesome!

This was one of the best tours we have had. Puerto Plata is beautiful and very interesting. We had enough time to visit each location and explore. Julian our tour guide gave us lots on information about the city. He was funny and charming. We saw tour guides on other tour companies leaving their people alone during the visits but our tour guide Julian was always with us, checking on us, making sure we were ok. Manuel our driver was really nice and careful while driving. The food was good and flavorful. My only disappointment was that we only visit one place were we could shop and it was overprice. We visited other shops later on our stay in Puerto Plata and the prices were a lot more reasonable and affordable. Overall a great tour, one of the best ones so far.

Our tour guide, Saturnino, was very fun and humorous, and our driver, Ray Moudo, was very skilled and efficient. They arrived at our resort right on time, if not a few minutes early. Saturnino was very knowledgeable and we got lots of commentary about all the sights as we past them. We didn't end up going to the Amber Museum, but I didn't even notice because of all the other things we did that day. A traditional Dominican meal of chicken, rice and beans, and cold salads was included with the tour, and let me tell you, it was absolutely fantastic! I would absolutely recommend this to any first timers to the Dominican.

The tour was a bit longer than expected (8 hours in total) due to weather delays at the cable car station, but the activities were interesting and in line with expectations. The city has some beautiful areas as well as some "under construction" areas, which add to the charm of exploring. Be prepared to sip rum at 10am and to see an amazing collection of amber with various creatures captured in time. If you're over 60 years old, Dan Marino (yes, his real name) will treat you well - otherwise, you can listen in on the tour.

We were told that the travel time to Puerto Plata City was 2 hours each way. It took 4 hours to get there 3 hours on tour including lunch and 1/2 hour to look around city on our own and 3.5 hours to return. The guide was amazing this was at the cost of US$175.00 each. We were promised a refund of 20% which was never issued even though requested several times. Never using TUI for tours again

This was a great tour, with some fantastic guides. Delmis (guide) and Roberto (driver) were great. It was very informative, and a pleasure to walk around some of the areas of the city while tasting cigars and seeing the sights and local people.

The rum factory was cool as you get to taste 7 different varieties of rum (I hope you're prepared to do this early in the AM, lol). If you are a chocolate fan, you will not be disappointed by the chocolate factory either.

The lunch provided was every bit as good if not better than what was provided at the resort buffet.

I'm closing, if you are interested in getting off the resort for the day and learning about the local people, culture, and industries, this is a great option.

Dan Marino was our guide and Bomba was our driver. Dan's knowledge of the history of the area was astounding, His english was excellent and he actually wanted to be corrected if words or pronunciation were wrong. He kept us entertained and was very understanding with a lady who was having some difficulties getting around. My sister in law who is nervous driving in the Dominican said this was the first time in 7 years visiting and touring that she was not afraid, Bomba was a very smooth very cautious driver

We had a fantastic start as we were warmly welcomed by Dan Marino, our guide, in such a friendly atmosphere as if we have known each other for ages. The guide and tour was extremely informative and entertaining. We were introduced to local culture, history and country industries: rum factory, amber museum, chocolate factory, fortress and a city market. Awesome ride in a cable car to the top of the mountain with stunning view of the city and the ocean made an unforgettable impression!
Dan is such a warm personality and a highly motivated guide (recommended!).
The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like at home to all of us. All respect for Dan who does a great job!

Many thanks and I recommend RunningAdventures to everyone!

Was an entertaining and enjoyable trip dan Marino was our guide his history of events and items we asked about very informative our driver bomba wow!! Never seen a bus go that smoothly given the obstacle course that is Puerto plata. The only negative thing I can say is by the time we got to the cable car up the mountain the 1hr plus wait was not great. But I understand it has nothing to do with the tour company was just bad timing.

We saw a ton of things on the tour. However, it was poorly facilitated for the time explained. We backtracked on road 3-4 times instead of cohorting activities in the same location. The city is safe and clean and I would recommend just taking a taxi into town and walking it yourself.
