    Enrique was terrific!!
    Enrique was awesome for us! We had approximately 60 freinds and family coming into Puerta Plata at different times throughout the week for a wedding. He was there waiting for airport pick-ups and returns. He also transported all of us from the resort to a location for a rehearal dinner and back, and even arranged, last minute, for someone to be picked up in Santo Domingo, about 4 hours away, and brought to the resort (flight was diverted due to weather). Never once did any of us have to wait for him. He was reasonable with pricing and always responded qucikly to any messages I sent him via WhatsApp - and yes, he understands and speaks English fluently. Thank you, Enrique, we will see you again when we return!

    Excellent Excellent Toyr Company
    We hired Enrique to take us on a tour of Puerta Plata. We wanted the flexibility to curate this tour based on the memories of our honeymoon 37 years ago. Enrique was great to work with, supplies us with the most conscientious driver, a clean van and a personal guide who walked us down a promenade and shared many great stories, fun facts and pointed out interesting sights. I left my water bottle in the van and Enrique drove it back to my hotel. Thanks so much Enrique! I give Enrique my highest regards as being a consummate professional offering amazing service in the tour industry.

    Great experience with personalized tour
    We booked a tour with Enrique, who tailored it to see a few sites in town and the Teleferico cable car. The tour went awesome and we had a great time. Enrique took us personally and he was very knowledgeable about the area, DR history and the plants in the natural reserve park. The tour van was clean and well air-conditioned. Enrique is also a very honest man. I accidentally overpaid him and he offered to drive back and return the overpayment. We also booked him for our transfer back to the airport.

    Very friendly and flexible service
    We booked Enrique Service Taxi Tours a few weeks before our family trip of 8 (2 seniors, 4 adults, 2 kids). We were all very pleased with Enrique and the tour. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and very flexible since we had requested to go to the beach. Enrique took us to the cable car, botannical garden, pink street and lastly the beach before heading back to the ship's port. We recommend Enrique Service Taxi.

    Wonderful service Enrique
    We were in DR week of January 14 to 21 and we hired Enrique to drive group of 6 around Puerto Plata. Enrique was on time, all prepared and ready to take us places to see Puero Plata. Enrique was very reasonable, AC van, Cooler with ice and water bottles. We were picked up from our hotel at 10am and did not come back until after 7pm. We were all very happy with Enrique's service and this trip was the highlight of our visit to Dominican Republic. I would highly recommend Enrique to my family and friends and should I ever visit again, Enrique will be driving us.

    Wonderful experience to start off 2024
    We received the information from friends that were the week before and said that we should try this and we are so happy we did. Enrique took us around the island and explained the history to us and all the locations and what they have and why. He took us to a beach front restaurant and the view was amazing. Thanks you again The Nevins

    Outstanding Tour Guide
    Enrique is by far the best tour guide in the Puerto Plata area. We have utilized his services several times and are always 100 percent satisfied. Enrique is extremely knowledgeable of all the fun places to see, such as restaurants, beaches, water falls, city tour, and cable car. He provides a safe and reliable service.

    Great service from friendly driver
    We used Enrique’s service to travel from the cruise port to the Damajagua waterfalls and back. Enrique showed up in person to introduce our driver, Rigo, and told us that after the waterfalls, he would bring us to any of the places of interest around town at no extra charge. Rigo was very friendly and helped us get set up at the waterfalls. He later found us a very typical roadside restaurant where we had a great meal. Our experience was great from beginning to end.

    Best taxi service in Puerto Plata
    Enrique was the best!! My friend and I were visiting for her birthday and he took excellent care of us. He took us to the best dining and night life spots in the city and stayed with us the entire time. We both felt very safe and taken care of so we could really enjoy our time in Puerto Plata. The city tour was amazing. Enrique handled all of our transportation needs while we were there and at a good price. We will definitely use Enrique again when we return!!!

We were a group of 7 adults. We all found Enrique to be a very safe driver, reliable and responsible and very easy to communicate with as he speaks English very well. Enrique was always on time, gave us some great suggestions for restaurants and solid advice re improving our itinerary. His van was always clean and is in good condition.
Enrique's cost proposal was very competitive and fair.
Finally, we had a bad experience with an ATV tour company. After telling Enrique about the experience he went out of his way and negotiated a $10.00 "rebate" for each of us.
I highly recommend using Enrique's services in the Dominican Republic.

Enrique was always in contact and punctual. He picked up and delivered us to the airport while providing scenic information about Puerto Plata and nearby towns. He took us on an awesome city tour that was fun as well as safe. His prices are better than reasonable for the personal services he provides. You'll be glad you gave his service a try.

My family and I have relied on Enrique’s services for a few years. We have chosen him because of his professionalism, reliability, cleanliness, and island knowledge.
Going on tours with Enrique is worry-free. He takes the time to understand what individuals/groups want to do and makes recommendations that are safe, fun, reliable, and affordable.
Last week our group of 11 went on several excursions with Enrique and I remember thanking him as he was helping me off of a boat for making us always feel safe and taken care of.
Thank you Enrique, until next time!
Oh and one of the highlights for us is that he always has cold Presidentes because he knows it’s a tradition for us. We don’t even have to ask for it!

Enrique's Tours are the way to explore Puerto Plata! Personalized service in a private, clean van with a professional driver and a knowledgeable, courteous guide surely beat the large bus tours offered by the cruise line and other vendors. Our guide, Juan Pablo and driver, Daniel customized our tour to our preferences and pace and included many of the interesting sights, sounds, tastes, and activities of this beautiful city. In additon, the price is very reasonable and more than competitive with the larger group tours. One note of caution. When leaving the bus tour area and entering the taxi area be sure to look for Enrique or his staff holding a sign with your name. You will be mobbed by many taxi drivers trying to get you into their cars instead of the one you have hired, some even claiming that they are Enrique (check their badge!). Once you find Enrique Service Taxi Tours you will not be disappointed

I cannot say enough good things about Enrique and the service he provided but I’ll try! I filled out the form on his website and he contacted me very promptly and responded quickly to all messages. He was very willing to customize a tour for us to do the things we were interested in doing while in the port on our cruise. We had no problem meeting up with him once we were off the ship and he was watching for us. The van is nice, comfortable and clean. It even has WiFi. He drove very safely and we felt very safe. Enrique is the perfect guide because he doesn’t talk non-stop and when he does talk, he shares interesting cultural or historical information. He never made us feel rushed and we really enjoyed our time with him. We hope to return to this beautiful city and we will definitely choose Enrique again!

I communicated with Enrique on Facebook after reading some reviews. We eventually took 3 half-day private tours. He asked for a deposit via Paypal, but when I informed him that I no longer use it, he said I could pay in cash at the tours. In fact, when the first tour started, he said I could pay him at the end of the 3rd tour. He was punctual on all 3 mornings, picking the 3 of us up at Iberostar Costa Dorado.
Trip 1: To the Puerto Plata Cable Car - an associate accompanied us up the cable car, and guided us around all the sites at the top. His English was good enough to explain what we were viewing. 60USD + tip . Cable Car cost is not included.
Trip 2: Tour of Puerto Plata with Enrique. It's a personal tour so you can ask him to see whatever you wish, or have him select sites for you. We did a combination and were very happy with our morning. 60USD + tip. Fort entry fee not included.
Trip 3: Drive to Damajagua Falls. Enrique helped us check in, got us some water bottles for the trek to the falls, and kept most of our stuff in his van where he waited until our return. Great to be able to ask him questions about the process. 80usd + tip. Does not include Falls entry fee.
If you are looking for personalized service, less stress, fewer potential covid contacts during transport, and reasonable prices, I highly recommend you contacting Enrique.

My partner and I recently travelled to Puerto Plata, and we booked a round trip airport transfer with Enrique’s Taxi and Tour Services after seeing the reviews that he had on trip advisor. We also prefer using local business for our transportation rather than the larger companies. We certainly were not disappointed. We were picked up by Enrique’s Taxi & Tour Services and Daniel was our driver. Daniel was waiting to meet us when we got out of the airport. While being driven to our hotel, Enrique called us to follow up and to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. Enrique also asked us as to what method of payment we would like to do. As we were doing cash, Enrique was so trusting that he told us that we could pay when he is dropping us off back at the airport for our return flight. We didn’t do any excursions on this trip, however, the next time we come to Puerto Plata we will use Enrique’s services for pick up and drop off at the airport as well as the Tours of Puerto Plata that he offers. He spoke great English and was very knowledgeable. We found that Enrique’s Taxi & Tour Service is First Class all around and would highly recommend that you use his services for your transportation while you are in Puerto Plata.

We went to Puerto Plata this April and booked a trip with Enrique services, he is very punctual and knowledgeable of the city and history. Went to the the mountains riding the cable car and the views from the mountains are beautiful. Also visited the historic part of the city including the fortress, the malecon , the Central Park with its Church and other nice places. We will definitely use his services in the future and recommend it to anyone.
