We met our guide, Winston, just outside the cruise port gate. Winston was an excellent guide showing us the highlights of Puerto Plata including the town square, Umbrella Street and the Pink Street. He told us all about the history of the Dominican Republic as we rode and

Please be advised that the you may have substantially less than 45 minutes to reach the meeting point which is actually outside the gates of the port. The were no signs pointing us to the correct place and the 12 minute walk is a very fast walk! If anyone in your group is

Response from JulesJ130, Owner at Cable Car & Historic Town Highlights Shore Excursion - Puerto Plata
Responded 2 Mar 2020
Hello! I am Jules and I am at the port myself nearly every ship call. I have walked from the ship myself at a leisurely pace. We set our estimated walk times based on actual guest arrival averages. We also keep detailed ship and guest arrival logs so we know to the minute when the first guest and last guest arrives. If we are missing anyone (which is not the norm), a team member checks the sidewalk inside the port. We (I) notify everyone waiting on our transport we are waiting for a guest and that they will be given a grace period. If the guest does not arrive, I or another Fun Coordinator waits at the meet location an additional 15-20 minutes for the late guest. If the guest arrives within 5 minutes, we arrange for the guest to meet the tour. We never have nor will we ever wait "less than 45-minutes". Its not who we are. Its not what we do. I understand you are frustrated that you missed your experience but all guests have access to detailed meet instructions and a map. We cannot hold a bus of 12-18 guests for someone who is very late. As a very kind reminder - review systems can be very helpful to guests and business owners but it can also be used as a weapon. I hope your future travels are happy and adventure-filled.

We definitely enjoyed our tour of Puerto Plata. Our tour guide, Winston, did a great job filling us in on the history of the area. We LOVED the cable car ride and being able to see the smaller version of the Cristo Redentor statue. The free WiFi and cool AC on the bus was a nice

The talk by our guide was very informative and helpful. It easily filled the time of the about 1 hour drive up to the 2nd highest point in the DR, where we got on a cable car for the ride back down to Puerto Plata. E.g., hurricanes are rare; last was in 1979. We then had a

Hello and thank you! We are really glad you watched the video and that it was helpful. Winston is a super ambassador of goodwill for this country and just an all-around great guy and host :-) Also, its wonderful you got the dramatic effect of bursting through the clouds in the cable car. We really appreciate the review and recommendation - come back and see us again real soon!
