I loved this excursion!! I only had 5 days (3 full days) in Puerto Plata, so I didn't really have much time to do much and I wanted to get the most out of the resort I was staying at, but this sounded very interesting. Our tour guide (Lidio...?) was really informative and funny! There were 8 of us on the trip (6 were German, so our tour was in German and English, which was good for brushing up on my very dusty German).

I really liked the horse back riding. Everyone else had a Dominican kid on the back of their horse to help control the horse, but there wasn't one for me, so I got to ride solo, but I think I did pretty well. It was so interesting to travel through that area. The waterfall was pretty, but wasn't that special (I've seen better), but the scenery and the bridges were pretty. The meal we had at the ranch was very tasty and fresh. The cigar shop was informative and smelled really nice. I liked the ceramic factory too. Side note: stock up on souvenirs at the ceramic store because everything was very nicely priced (they even had magnets, shot glasses, and other typical souvenirs in addition to the neat pottery).

I highly recommend this tour. It was a great deal for the price. We did so much! The driver was very erratic and fast (like most other drivers down there), but it added to the experience!

This trip was really good. The guide was really informative. The walk back up from waterfall was very hard. Also, if going horse riding make sure you have long socks on to cover your ankles

Waterfall was beautiful, food was delicious. Downfall was we were the only 2 English speakers on the bus. And felt left out of a lot of the information that was being shared with the German speakers. Felt misinformed.

One day before the tour started we got a fax that the tour was cancelled because it was not sold out. The next day at 7 oclock we got a phone call stating that the bus to Santiago was waiting at the hotel lobby. We had 10 minutes to get out of bed and to have a wash including teeth brush and get dressed. Than we walked really fast to the bus without breakfast. We explained that the day before we had gotten a fax that the tour was cancelled and they told us sometimes that can happen. That was not a nice start for a tour. The Tour was okay but we saw not so much of Santiago, just the monuments and some streets in Santiago. That's the reason why we are disappointed in the tour.
