Panama City Sightseeing Tour Including Miraflores Locks

Panama City, Panama

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The tour itinerary is Ok and it ends early in the afternoon due to the traffic. The tour guide "Jeff" was a nice and pleasant person. He said he will provide guidance in English, Spanish and French. He started right but at the end he started recruiting local people to provide historical information for the ones who spoke in Spanish. Who knows if the information provided by the locals was correct or not. There was a couple of mentally ill on the back seat of the minivan who were clearly disturbing others, but the guide seemed to ignore them. In general the tour is fine and it can be improved. Good efforts!!

My Review

The driver was late and I had to call him to remind him about my departure. He had a charming personality that made up for the inconvenience.

Zipaquirá Salt Cathedral and Laguna de Guatavita Day Trip from Bogotá

Bogotá, Colombia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very nice visit to both places. The guide (Luis) was well versed and the local tourist agency was very responsible. We went on a Monday and the Lagoon's main entrance was closed. The tourist agency offered another half day trip the next day at their own expense to make it up. Wonderful views of the lagoon and the surrounding landscape from the top of the hill. The Salt Cathedral is a unique experience.

Villa de Leyva Day Trip from Bogotá

Bogotá, Colombia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a beautiful town and the landscapes you watch while getting there are breathtaking. I gave it 4 stars because the driver was like a "maniac on wheels". At some point when I saw him passing 4 cars in a curved two lanes highway I started to think "That's it". I am glad we came back alive.

Andrés Carne de Res: Admission and Round-Trip Transport from Bogotá

Bogotá, Colombia

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

The transportation and the tourist guide were excellent. The guide left me at the entrance and she said "I had to talk with Leonardo who would be in charge of providing a table". I had paid in advance and I supposed I had a reservation. Then a female helper arrived and told me they don't accept reservations and that I would be on the waiting list. She also offered the option of seating on a bench in front of the street. I was very disappointed and I told her I wanted to talk with Leonardo. When finally Leonardo had some time, I spoke with him and he seemed to be more reasonable. I explained to him I had paid in advance top dollars for the admission and transportation and I would not accept to be seated on a bench in front of the street. Then he got a table at a more decent location inside the restaurant. Inside the restaurant there was a complete chaos. One person got served first and the others kept waiting for a long time until finally the sever arrived and asked for our order. The place is bizarre, I would not say elegant but nicely decorated. There are different types of entertainment inside. It needs organization badly to give it at least 4 stars. But it is an original idea that can be improved with better management.

Dolphin Encounter at Ocean World

Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

To be honest I gave 5 stars to the Dolphin (Chico from cuba). I would give to the trainer 3 stars because the intructions were not clear before the encounter with the Dolphin and they can be misleading to do something confusing. I was the first to be called to participate of a group of 4. I was seated across the trainer with a pool and the Dolphin in the middle. The trainer just called me and asked me to join him. He did not explain if the pool was deep or shallow, if I had to swim next to him or to walk around the pool. During the confusion, I jumped in the pool and I found out it was very deep. After making attempts to go back to my previous place, I decided that it was better to swim across the pool. I was a little worried about how the Dolphin would behave having me there inside the pool with him. I would highly recommend to the trainer to tell the people with clear words " stand up, walk around the pood and seat next to me". Those simple words would simplify and enrich the experience. Clear communication is very important!

Puerto Plata City Tour with Cable Car Ride

Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I gave it a 3 stars rating to be generous. Most of the time is spent in rum and jewelry factories that mask the store trying to sell the products. It is like going shopping experience, even thought the amber and Larimar museums are nice to see. There was no lunch includded, even thought it was mentioned like part of the deal. The best part for me was the visit to the city center and the cable car ride with amazing views. I would recommend adding more sightseen of the beautiful Puerto Plata area and surroundings, and less shopping experience.
