What people are saying about Puerto Plata

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!!

A wonderful trip in an intimate group. I recommend. You can feel like with a private guide, everything was practically arranged for our individual needs. We were shown around by Ms. Diana, all in Polish <3 You can't buy something like that in a hotel or travel agency :))

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!

A unique experience on a beautiful small, dreamlike sandbank. The trip from Cabarete was very long (3.5 hours) but it was worth it. you should have seen it.

gyönyörű hely, tiszta, barátságos személyzet, jó programok, finom ebéd. a nyugalom szigete.
