    Fabulous customized private tour!
    We had a wonderful day with a great tour guide. We did not rent a car during our 5 days in Curaçao and we wanted to explore different parts of the island and different beaches. He picked us up at Avila Resort promptly and we were on our way! Our guide customized our day to our liking and he was very professional, friendly, and accommodating. We started at Shete Boka National Park where we saw stopped at Boka Pistol and Boka Tabla. From there we went to the gorgeous beach called Grote Knip. Then we stopped at Playa Lagun for a drink at the Bahia Restaurant set high up on a cliff overlooking the beach..we were lucky to see a sea turtle swimming in the water there. Then we made a lunch stop at Playa Forti. The restaurant served delicious food overlooking a beautiful beach, and we were entertained by cliff jumpers! After lunch we stopped at Playa Jeremie, a lovely and quiet locals beach. Our final stop was Cas Abao beach… a beautiful beach with all the amenities. Overall, it was a fantastic day. I highly recommend this tour.

    Great day visiting Curacao
    Can't say enough great things about this tour and our tour guide, Lee. After being in the sun and beaches for a few days, we were getting a little tired of snorkeling so Lee altered the agenda and showed us some of the highlights of the island plus some shopping while still going to some of the beaches to do cliff jumping and see the turtles. Lee had a lot of information about the island and provided a great overview while driving around. We had a great time and this was well worth the price.

    Unforgettable tour with the best guides!
    Best tour guide award goes to Lee! We were fortunate to stop in Curacao while on a cruise and booked this private excursion for our group of 8 (2 families). We met Lee a short walk from our dock and were on our way. We visited Shete Boka, swam with turtles, ate at an open air restaurant, went cliff jumping, spent time at a picturesque beach (which had PIGS! OMG!), stopped briefly to see flamingos and took a drive through Willemstad. We fit in a lot and Lee was not only super informative and engaging, but he was so fun and easy to be around. The bonus for our family was that he is a futbol player and we are a group of big soccer fans! My 11 year old son kept him talking the WHOLE lunch!!! 😂 Do not wait on this tour!!! Book now!

    Best tour ever
    We booked this tour for my and my mom's 3rd trip to Curacao, but first for my husband and dad. This was the BEST tour hands down. It was so nice to have a private driver and air conditioned vehicle. Lee was able to take us to all the sights we wanted as well as added some extra in! There was no way we could have done everything we did on a group tour. He took group photos for us, provided details of the island and was simply amazing. We were brought back to the port well within the cruise ship hour limits, but didn't feel like our day was cut short. Previously, my mom and I have done a colorful open air tour which we thought was excellent, but this tour was so much better! Highly highly recommend booking a private tour with Around Curacao tours! Money well spent.

    Awesome tour
    Shue picked us up at our resort Sandals. He had cold water in the car waiting for us. He was very knowledgeable about the island. Our tour was designed by us but Shue took us to additional spots that he recommended. He took us to three amazing beaches from swimming with the turtles to beaches with amazing views and beautiful water with great snorkeling. We had our own gear but if you do not they have gear for you. We went to old homes and he explained the history about them and a beautiful art gallery and he told us the history of the artist. He took us to a restaurant for lunch to try the local food that had awesome views. We could have never saw the island without doing this awesome private tour. Thank you for the memories.

    Shue was absolutely amazing!
    We had a late start (unexpectedly) and they were so gracious and forgiving about it. The day went by so so fast. We got to see so much and do so much in such a short time. We can not wait to be back! Curaçao is such a gem!

    great tour with Shue
    We had a great tour with Shue, he was very personable, knowledgeable and happy to show us all the sites while providing great information about the island and it's people. We had a private tour with just the four of us guests and we personalized it to where we wanted to go and Shue accommodated our requests and then some. The only thing was we did not know to look for "the guys in the blue shirts" so we were a few minutes late leaving because we did not know how to find him but he more than made up for it in the tour. We would HIGHLY recommend. The beaches, cliff jumping and island were all amazing. I would skip the turtle beach, while cool to see there were WAY too many people in one area for us. Shue also got us an ocean view lunch followed by cliff jumping, what more could you ask for.

    Best Day Ever
    We booked a private tour and this was one of the nicest shore excursions we've ever had. Our driver Shue was pleasant and informative. He offered us a variety of options and an ideal amount of time to spend in each location. He was spot on with everything. We arrived at Turtle Beach before the crowds and had plenty of time to snorkel with the turtles, then went to the next cove and were able to snorkel again and see a variety of fish and coral. We typically don't stop for lunch when on a cruise, to maximize our shore time, but Shue suggested a beatiful location where we had an incredible view, a delicious meal and even had the opportunity to experience a 45 foot cliff jump! We ended the day going to see the blow hole and a driving tour through Wilemstad. Overall, I would highly recommend this company and ask for Shue, he is a true gem.

    Shue was terrific
    Great day in Curacao.. This excursion was perfect and just what we were looking for. We stopped at the most spectacular beaches and never felt rushed for time. Our guide Shue provided us with water and towels and suggested a awesome place for lunch with killer views. We even had time to visit Curaçao’s Liqueur Distillery with a stop to see the Queen Emma Bridge with sometime left for last minute shopping. Thank you and will definitely be back.

    Would do this tour again! 10 out of 10
    Six of us were cruising on Holland America and chose this snorkeling/island tour. Lee was our driver and made sure we saw everything we wanted to see. The entire experience was great. Would do it all again. We snorkeled, saw the flamingos and turtles on two separate beaches. Had a drink with a beautiful view. Stopped by a cigar shop. Lee was awesome, so informative. Perfect day and evening. Dropped us off at our dinner reservation.

    Best day on our cruise, loved Curaçao and Lee
    Wow, what a wonderful day we had! Lee was awesome and we got to do and see so many things while in pier in Curaçao. We snorkeled with the turtles, which was absolutely amazing! We did a little beach hopping. Then we visited the sea cave and blow hole. Last we stopped at the Curaçao distillery fort a quick tour. Lee was so nice and he has so much to tell us about the island. We really enjoyed our day and highly recommend this company. Best day for sure on our cruise!!!

    Best tour on the Island
    Our guide, Ray, was amazing, patient and very knowledgeable. Never once did we feel pressured or awkward with Ray. Best tour we did on the island by far and a great way to end our vacation! Thank you!! 10/10 recommend.

    Curaçao Beach hopping
    Curaçao Beach hooping by Breeze tour. We did beach hop with the first stop was snorkeling and swimming with turtles in Piskado turtle beach we had Ariel as our driver/guild that provided all snorkeling gear and derailed safely instructions. Had a wonderful time snorkeling eventhough it’s our first time snorkeling. Did see a lot of marine life and awesome turtles. Next stop was Knip Beach another great time snorkel and swim even saw an elusive sand fish. And finally the beach for last with lunch on the beach at the playa PortoMari beach. We were able to get lunch and enjoyed beach time thanks for Ariel insight. On our way back to our hotel we had added stop to see and photograph flamingos in their natural habitat. These beach hop is well worth and an amazing day in Curaçao

    As good as their rating
    You wonder how a company can be rated as highly as this one until you spend a day with them and then it becomes crystal clear. They are that good. Six of us did a private tour with Will in early December and he was incredible. Just use this company. You won't be disappointed.

Ray showed up early, was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable from the first second we met him. Nice and comfortable SUV, air conditioned. It was not a cattle car like the other tour services or a seat in the back of a hot bumpy truck. Ray was very knowledgeable, answered questions and even made suggestions for dinner places for the rest of our stay. This tour is well worth the price and should be done at the beginning of your stay so you know where you want to go the rest of the time.

We are so grateful that Andy took us on last minute (literally the night before) to do a tour on our first day visiting Curacao because he absolutely exceeded our expectations. We went snorkeling with turtles, visited beaches with the bluest water, saw an amazing blow hole, and he even stopped by a grocery store on our way home so we could pick up groceries for our rental house. Not only did we have a great tour that hit a lot of fun, exciting destinations in Curacao (including some that only a local would know), he was also just a tremendously fun and genuine person that we hope to keep in touch with in the future. For example, he gave us tips of what to do on our other days in Curacao, and even he sent us updates on when the best time to go to Carnival would be. This shows he genuinely cares about his customers and that he will go above and beyond to help them. We are so lucky to now be able to call him a friend, and we absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend Andy for anyone visiting Curacao!

Lypson was our guide and did an excellent job at showing us around within the time we had. He was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Andy sent suggestions in advance to choose from since we were not sure what we wanted to do. So worth being in a small group of just our friends versus a large bus that we would be subject to their times and probably not be able to see as much. I would recommend using them and suggest asking in advance options to see as it helped us to plan. Loved swimming with the sea turtles, the blow hole etc.

Book now! We had 5 people (2 adults and 3 kids (10, 8, 6) and Shue was our guide. Loved getting the confirmation ahead of time with a photo of our guide and easy to navigate instructions on where to meet - a short 5-7 min walk from our ship at the port. Shue asked us what we wanted to do and delivered! We saw flamingos, took a tour of the caves, saw historical sites with Shue giving us all the details (quick drive by since we wanted to get to the water to play). We stopped at a great local spot for lunch for a quick bite and to watch some people jumping off cliffs. Did some snorkeling with turtles and the best part was a stop at a gorgeous beach to play in the water, see some fish and play football in the water… Shue even hanging out with us in the water to throw the ball at our request. He was a trooper playing with the kids! And, he even found a bathroom to take our kid to it and had the local currency for the bathroom fee (those who have kids will appreciate this without measure!). We got to see tourist and local spots and always felt safe. Having someone who knows the island and speaks the language was comforting to keep away pesky folks who would have otherwise tried to sell us things we didn’t want. Having someone drive us around, feel like family (never awkward in the car ride- it was as if we had known him forever) and feel happy knowing we had the experience we wanted on the island makes this a must use company! Will book again for our trip next Thanksgiving!

I decided to try a tour NOT associated with our cruise and I am SO GLAD we did! I had several emails back and forth with the company and they proved to be exactly as advertised! Reliable, Personable, Safe, and granted my requests of activities/locations. Ray met us at Starbucks promptly at 9am boat time, 10am Curacao time, and we were off on our PRIVATE tour for 4 in a clean, comfortable, air conditioned SUV equipped with towels, water and snorkeling gear. (we were not interested in an expensive bus tour with dozens of others working on their time and their choice of stops that was offered through Royal Caribbean). Ray is a local with a fantastic personality and really has a way of showcasing unique Curacao! He has a wealth of cultural, historical, geologic, ecologic and economic information. We were entertained, never felt rushed and stayed at each location as long as we liked.

First stop was the Hato Caves (would totally skip this as in Virginia we have caves WAY better). Second stop was AMAZING! Shete Boka National Park to see and hear the Boka Pistol. The waves smash into a limestone inlet making a shotgun sound as the water shoots out! We also walked down the the Boka Tabla and saw the waves thunder into an underwater cave. Third stop was lunch at a local restaurant and our teenagers were so entertained by the cliff jumpers, they decided to go for it as well! Fourth stop was to the see the native flamingos. Fifth stop was one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen! Grote Knip Beach had beautiful white sand, warm water and fish! Lastly, we went back into the town to shop. Ray dropped us right off at the cruise ship dock on time!

Book a tour with this company and you will not be disappointed!

Let me start by telling you that I have used Around Curacao Tours three times in the last 6 years…2015, 2018, and 2021. I’ve always been aboard a cruise ship & have stopped in port for the day. Each time I’ve been with a different group of family & friends. Andy has provided us with three outstanding tours of his beautiful island!!! And I have seen different things as Andy is great at customizing the trip to the things that your group wants to do. I have always used Trip Advisor to get a true feel for what to expect. My wife & I love to travel and always strive to use local companies and tour guides away from the crowded overpriced cruise excursions. Of all the private tours that we’ve done on several Caribbean islands & Mexico, Andy is my absolute favorite tour guide!!! He is knowledgeable, professional, caring, fun, creative, very personable, and truly loves showing his beautiful island to visitors. He left a lasting impression on me during our first tour, that is why I will continue to use him each time that we go…you’ll leave the tour knowing that you made a friend on Curacao! Trust me when I tell you that you will not be disappointed. I would give Around Curacao Tours 10+ stars if I could…you won’t be disappointed. I also left a review in 2015 along with some photos…check it out if you need more verification. If you have any questions that I can answer for you about our experiences, you can reach me on FB at my name below.

This was a fantastic way to get to learn about the island and see what we wanted to without the crowds or rigid itinerary. We went to kniep beach on the west side for some downtime, after spending the day touring to see the sea turtles, the blow hole, the salt plains, the highest peak, UNESCO sites, national parks, and more. Ray was an excellent guide with a positive can-do attitude and an extensive knowledge on the history of language and the island. We enjoyed his ability to get us everywhere we wanted to see and also his relaxed no-stress vibe. Recommend for early on in the trip for a great overview.

Out family with two teens were met by our guide for the day Lee who was happy, kind and started us off with sharing all the island had to offer so we could create a plan just for us for the whole day. Lee was awesome all day and make the maximum use of our time by packing everything in we wanted while also giving us some relaxing chill time for the beach and later for shopping. We’ve been on tons of cruises and traveled the world, and you can trust me when I saw this tour is well worth the value. It’s the perfect way to see Curacao!

I decided to book this private tour with my daughter to feel safer during this pandemic. Andy was extremely informative, patient, follows all safety COVID protocols and is very accommodating. He customs this tour according to your likings and preferences. He gives you as much time as you want in each location. Additionally he tells you how much the time you spend in each location will affect other things you want to do in the tour... so you are totally in charge! He took us to the East & West of the island and we saw all we wanted to see and experience. I will recommend this tour to all friends and family planning to travel to Curaçao and will also be in touch with Andy regarding any recommendations for future travel to the island. We really enjoyed this!! Thank you Andy!!

Lee was our tour guide and he was amazing! Super fun guy, professional but also personable, full of so much knowledge and facts about the island being as he was born and raised there. You could really tell he loved the island a lot.

The private tour was SUCH a great deal! You get your own private AC car, they have amenities like water, sunblock, towels, snorkel gear, etc for you too and pick you up / drop you off from anywhere and any time that you want.

I had a few places in mind I wanted to go to but Lee also took us to a few extra places once we told him what we were interested in - we love snorkeling, nature, and animals and we definitely saw all that and more!

You don’t need to do anything else except this private tour because you can see the entire island with Lee or any one else in the company in a full day. We spent more than 8 amazing hours together and felt really fulfilled!

Highly recommend to anyone - don’t even think about booking another group tour, this covers EVERYTHING and with your own private group for a great price point.
