You'll also have the opportunity to see a historic fortress built in the 16th century and Parque Independencia where you can take a walk through the Cathedral. In addition to all this, the guide will provide beverages throughout the excursion including rum punch, local beer, sodas or bottled water for your convenience. This is a day you're likely to never forget.

Start this adventure by meeting your welcome team just outside the Amber Cove Cruise Center's main gate. Then your English speaking Amber Cove sightseeing shore excursion guide will escort you to your air-conditioned van, or mini-bus, for a 40-minute picturesque drive that will be fully narrated.

The summit of Mount Isabela de Torres will take you 2,555 feet above sea-level. You will board the Caribbean's only cable car for a 15-minute slow ride to the top. This cable car system was inaugurated in 1975, with the construction of Italian origin and can carry 17 people. It is moved by an electric hydraulic system, conducted by a central operator situated at the base station. This small train is welcoming, with protective glass walls, and offers the visitor a panoramic view of the city descending from the hill including a garden with 215 features. You will have time at the top explore abit with your guide. See the beautifully kept gardens and a representation of the Christ the Redeemer Statue, which is an exact replica of the one in Rio de Janeiro, although a bit smaller. Then you will enjoy the scenic ride back down.

Next, you'll take a 20-minute drive to Fort San Felipe, which is a historic Spanish fortress that was built in 1577 to protect the city of Puerto Plata from pirates and other marauders. Here at the oldest surviving structure, your knowledgeable guide will provide historical facts and its interesting background. You'll enjoy a short photo op.

Your transportation will take you for a 10-minute ride to Parque Independencia where you will receive information about the Victorian architecture. Enter the impressive Cathedral and enjoy more photo opportunities. Your total time at Parque Independencia will be 30 minutes. At this point, you'll board your transportation for a 30-minute drive back to Amber Cove and your cruise ship terminal.

Please note that the cable car descent will depend upon the weather. If there are high winds a van, or bus, will bring you back down to the base. Finally, the order of visits may change due to crowds.

Four of us took this trip and all highly recommend. Milton was a great tour guide and we learned so much about Dominican Republic. I need to add that our driver was also fantastic and so professional, he would hurry to get to the door to help everyone out. The cable car was worth the whole experience, but the whole trip was so worth it. Just FYI, the port is Carnival owned so you will have to walk out of the port a little ways to get to the bus. This excursion is for any age, and worth every penny.

Awesome views!
     5/5  March 2020
This is a small & nice cruise port, people are very friendly. We took the city sightseeing and cable car ride. The cable car ride was both thrilling and amazing with wonderful views and beautiful gardens. We visited the fort, the statue of Christ and the main plaza. The guide was very knowledgable and friendly offering drinks along our way. When returned aboard the ship I found the exact same excursion offered by the cruise line at a higher price for the same quality of tour. I definitely, will use you for our future trips.

Best tour Puerto Plata
     5/5  October 2019
The tour was amazing from the start. My tour guide Winston was very knowledge worthy. The passion for his country made the tour exciting. He was always in control with a cool demeanor. Winston knew where to take us and bought us fruit to sample. The best part of the tour was the breath taking cable car ride! The price was worth every dollar. My only suggestion is to have shuttles inside the immediate port area. I will visit again. Thank you Winston and Shore Excursioneer Team.

The Dominican Republic at its finest
     5/5  February 2019
We were lucky to get Victor and "Bas" as our guide and driver. Victor was an excellent tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the areas, culture, and all the ins and outs of the tourist traps. He kept everything flowing and was never boring. His presentation was done in English and we had no trouble understanding him. We were offered beverages throughout the tour and were shown extreme hospitality by all employees. The bus was air conditioned, clean, and comfortable. It even had wifi in it. We never felt scared or put in any harms way.

Best shore excursion ever
     5/5  February 2018
All the people associated with our excursion were very professional, and lots of fun. Our guide was very proud of his country, and showed us many sights that you would not see on a cruise ship related tour. Best bang for the buck. Highly recommend it.

Adventorous day in Puerto Plata
     5/5  July 2017
Our ship was scheduled to arrive in Dominican Republic and we really wanted to make the best out of our day in port. This was a great option and really fun! We learned the local history and the cable car ride was a bit scary at first but when I realized how safe it was I impressed by the view. Beatiful city. Really enjoyed it.

Great Visit to Puerto Plata
     5/5  November 2017
This trip was a wonderful introduction to the Dominican Republic and the city of Puerto Plata. Our top-notch guide and driver provided a running narration for the length of the trip, allowing us to get the most out of our limited time. Views from the top of Mount Isabel were superb, and the ride down the mountain in the cable car was a unique and thrilling experience. Our party learned a lot about local history & culture, and we will definitely travel to the DR again.
