Great Tour
Aug 2021 • Couples
Wonderful, Carlos, are guide was amazing.

My complaint is that the company should of contacted us about, the Cable Car not working. That was one of the main reasons we booked this tour. We found out after we where in the Van driving away from the port.
So we where disappointed for sure, again company should of at least emailed me🙄

Like I said, Carlos, and are driver ( cannot remember his name, sorry) where amazing and informative, and went out of there way to show us a wonderful time. Lunch was good, drinks where yummy. The van was clean and comfortable. Rum and Cigar factories where a lot of fun also!! Rolled my own😁

WARNING, when you go to the top of the mountain where you get to the cable car there is the statue of the Christ the Redeemer. There you can get your picture taking with Statue in the back ground. BEWARE, the people taking the pictures will harraass you to come into there shops, and buy. I mean HARASS!!! Unrelenting annoying!!!!!!!

Dear Cherylann4820, I'm so sorry you weren't informed about the cable car! It was an oversight and totally my fault. I'm glad you had a great time despite that disappointment and please, let me know if there is anything I can do to make amends. Sincerely, Lidia / Iguana Mama

Amazing Day full of fun
Mar 2020
We were on a cruise and booked this tour from home. We received very good directions on where and how to meet our tour. It was a lovely walk along a garden-like path to meet our tour. After meeting our guide and all gathered we were off for our adventure. What a fun-filled day we had, our guides kept us informed and laughing and "fueled" with rum punch. We were even given a gift, a great straw hat. I would highly recommend this tour if you want a small group experience going to all the highlights. We were on a 21 day cruise and this was the best excursion on our cruise.

Best excursion ever!
Jan 2020
We came off the Carnival Magic and walked to our meeting point. Just my grandson and I were on the tour. I was afraid they would cancel. They did not! I am ashamed to say I cannot remember our driver and guide's name. I think because I just think of them as super heroes who made our excursion the best ever. We had all the rum drink and water we could drink any time we were enroute to another fabulous place. We went to distilleries, an amber store, cigar store and more. We got inside tips on the best places to buy what we were looking for. And lunch which was included was traditional local dishes. Quite Divine! Our driver and guide were fun, outgoing, knowledgeable and really made the Dominican Republic come alive for us. If you EVER get the chance to go to the Dominican Republic, I highly recommend Mama Iguana for any of your tour needs. I have done many cruises and many excursions over the past 10 years and this one was simply the BEST EVER.

Fantastic Excursion with Iguana Mama!
Mar 2020
I had read the reviews beforehand and they were spot on for this excursion. Everything surpassed expectations. The Driver was excellent, and tour guide Alex (The Great) Alvoro lived up to his nickname and delivered an exceptional description of the local history and sights, as well as how they fit in to the history of the Dominican Republic. I look forward to other excursions with them on future cruises.

The guide and driver from Mama Iguana Tours were very knowledgeable and fun to spend the day with. Many beautiful things to see, especially the view of the city from top of peak overlooking harbor. Lunch in charming Victorian home was tasty and fun. Great rum tour and cigar rolling.

Bring on the rum punch!
Feb 2020
Had a delightful time with our group of five. All activities were quite good. Heavy traffic through construction made us need to rush a little, but did see all stops. Lunch was authentic local, but not great, but we were quite late getting there, too, so I think it was on hold a little too long. Driver Jose kept us well 'hydrated" and guide Maximo was excellent. It is a hike from ship to pickup stop. Took the bike taxi as far as they would go, then walked the rest. So glad we opted for this instead of the day at another pool owned by the cruise.Kinda rude that they won't let these operators even pull into the parking area for pickup.

Hola Trail234047! Thanks so much for choosing our Eat Drink & Be Merry Puerto Plata City Tour and this wonderful review. Road construction is worse some days than others and I'm very sorry it meant we had to rush a little but, getting you back to your ship on time is a huge priority for us. Glad you had a great time anyway! Regarding Carnival... we wish they would allow us to offer a more convenient pick up too! Hopefully, we'll have the pleasure of taking you on another excursion in the future! Cheers! Lidia / Iguana Mama

We had Alexander as our guide he had so much information for our group. He made out trip very personal to our likes. We went on cable cars, Visited the rum factory, rolled cigars and danced at cigar factory. Enjoyed a delicious typical lunch at a very nice bistro type restaurant. They made sure our drinks all throughout the trip never ran out. In the event we return we will definitely use them again. Dont hesitate to book this one.
