Nice trip through the town and up the mountain to the cable car. Views were great. Victor was entertaining. Rum punch! Good tour of the fort.
Problem at the start. My ticket said call for confirmation and meeting instructions. Well, cell phones service was out in the DR. I kept asking people where this group was located. “Outside the front gate”. This was over a mile from the cruise port. We were late but fortunately they waited for us. The description of just outside the cruise port should be redefined the say give yourself 30 minutes to get to the tour departure spot. Again another long walk back to the ship.
Victor led an excellent excursion around Puerto Plata, taking us to the mountain top, followed by an exciting cable car ride down the mountain. Historic Ft. San Felipe was a very interesting piece of history. Downtown Puerto Plata provided a shopping opportunity for those interested in doing that. I can';t sing Victor's praises enough. We had a half dozen French-speaking guests with very limited English capabilities. Victor contacted one of his friends who spoke French, picked him up, and the French guests had a very worthwhile excursion. Victor is a true ambassador for Amber Cove Adventures. My wife and I will repeat this tour in March with other friends. It was that good!
I planned this excursion for my mother and myself. It was awesome. I was scared after I booked because I was not going with one from my cruise line. After I confirmed my tour and spoke with a fellow American who live in the Dominican Republic I became very relaxed. Victor our tour director was top notch. Very Knowledgeable and a lot of fun. This tour gives you a glimpse of the life in the Dominican. The cable car provides you with the most beautiful views. And to see The Redeemer was as Spectacular. The only downfall to this tour was the hike to get to the pickup spot. It’s was hard on my mother who survived and has some great memories from the tour. Amber Cove Adventures were wonderful people .
I booked this a shore excursion from a cruise. It’s wasnt offered by the cruise line but it should be. The tour started just outside the gate of the Amber Cove cruise port. A small bus picked up those who booked. As we headed towards the town of San Felipe, the guide described where we were in relation to other parts of the country and how they share the island with Haiti. He told us about the history of the country and the government. As we drove through the neighborhoods, he pointed out interesting places, like the markets and building damaged by past hurricanes, interesting facts about the people living there and the plants unique to the country, as wellas their medicinal uses. We wound around the mountain side until reaching the highest point on that side of the Dominican Republic. Once at the top he took us to a scenic overlook for photos and then to the replica of the Christ the Redeemer statue, a smaller version of the one in Brazil. From there we walked to the cable car station. The view from here was spectacular. After a few photos we boarded the cable car and went down the mountain. Our driver was waiting at the bottom. We boarded, were offered some rum punch and continued our tour. We drove through the downtown area and stopped at a local jeweler. They showed us a couple of rare minerals including Amber and Larimar, and how to tell what is real. Of course they wanted you to buy some. As out your continued, we drove past an open air farmers market where our guide pointed out all the local produce and how fresh it was. From here we drive to Fortaleza San Felip, a fort built by the Spanish to protect the town. We walked the grounds, toured the structure, learned its history, and took a few moments to take some photos. From there we drove to a downtown park, Parque Independencia, for a brief stop before returning to the port entrance. Our guide, Victor, was really good. His knowledge of the area is impressive. He genuinely wanted everyone to have a good time. All of that said, this is not for everyone. This tour requires a lot of walking and stair climbing. In fact, its more than a 3/4 mike walk from the ship to the port entrance, where the tour leaves from. If you have heart or breathing issues this may not be for you. Overall, the positives out weigh the negatives.
For our day at Amber Cove, we prebooked this tour to see the area. It worked out fine and gave a nice view around the countryside and city sites. Otherwise Amber Cove is a cruiseline-created shopping stop that shows you nothing of the Dominican Republic. You do have to walk a distance out of the port to meet the driver and van, but it is safe and easy. Our driver/guide Victor was great. We saw real life in the D.R. as we drove up the winding road to the mountaintop. The views were great, and he stopped for photos. At the top you see the Christ statue and sweeping views across Puerto Plata, then a fun ride down on the nice cable car. Around the city you see some interesting sights and then a full tour of the old fort. We had a brief shopping stop in case you want to buy amber. Victor had a cooler of tasty punch and sodas or beer as you like. It was a good way to see and learn about this lush tropical area of the Caribbean.
Sachant que Puerto Plata n'a pas de points d'intérêt remarquables, l'excursion s'est révélée très agréable, par la gentillesse des accompagnateurs (dont un guide parlant français), et les sites visités bien mis en valeur par le temps ensoleillé. A savoir : rejoindre le bus à partir du bateau est un bout de route plutôt long.
