Quality family business

Wonderful informative walk and talk about the native vegetation and waterfall. My husband had a minor medical incident that they handled professionally and he still fully was able to participate due to their extra guides that stayed with him. Family sponsored business doing a quality job. Rum punch was great!

Great family adventure!

My family had a wonderful time on this excursion. The crew was very helpful and Francisco was my personal body guard most of the day. He made sure I got through the hike, jumps and slides safely. We definitely recommend this excursion and Amber Cove Adventures for this experience!

I contacted them to cancel days prior and received no response. We never made our cruise due to weather delays. I guess take my money and run.

Wonderful trip with Winston

Had a great tour with Winston! Very informative and helpful. The only thing I wish was different was that we brought our phones with us for pictures. We were warned the water we would trek through would be too high and our phone might get wet, but the water wasn’t high.

Absolutely AMAZING experience...

Absolutely AMAZING experience! Henry, our tour guide, was the best-super informative, very fun and caring- he made this amazing experience so much more memorable. During our hike through the jungle on the mountain, he stopped to show us all of the different fruit trees almonds, mango, avocado, caco, the different variety of palm trees. The waterfalls were STUNNING, and the jump was just incredible! After, on our ride back to port, Henry gave us rum punch, and even stopped at a fruit stand to buy us fresh mango and banana- he is an asset to the tour company for sure. This was the absolute highlight of our vacation- I highly recommend this excursion to anyone traveling to the D.R!

Don’t waste your money on Trek

This excursion is based mainly on if you are doing the waterfall jump. If you are not, you will be ignored for 2 1/2 HRs waiting at the last waterfall until the big group joins you. One of the main family member owners told everyone on the bus that we would all get wet and to leave everything on the bus, including phones, towels, and sunglasses. I told her that we were doing the trek and swim and she said not to bring anything. We were instructed to get a helmet and life preserver and follow the group. ( I’m not sure why we would need helmets) When we split, a guide walked us through another path and then to the falls. He told us to wait there and swim and he would go help the big group and see us in 2-2 1:2 HRs! We didn’t even have towels, phones etc. Winston, the main guide Who walked with the big group was awesome however. He was very nice and helpful to people through the excursion. But I can not recommend this and felt it wasn’t worth the money.

The best guides ever! They were so...

The best guides ever! They were so helpful aiding my 77 years old active parents through the streams. They went over and above for us...shelled almonds from trees on trail, painted faces w/ rocks, pointed out local trees and birds. The rum punch at the end was a winner too! I highly recommend Winston and his crew to lead your excursion!
