“Book This One Early!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is probably one of the best operated and conducted tours we've ever taken
anywhere, and at $25. per person, the most under-priced as well.
Barbel and Brian, a husband/wife team, conduct this really informative and
comprehensive tour of all the major sites on Bonaire. Brian (who toured us...he
and his wife trade-off) is a superb guide, well-educated, articulate and very
knowledgeable about his island and its history. You see and hear about the salt
flats, slave quarters and the slaves' lives, tour inner parts of the island to see the town
of Rincon and other higher elevation sites.
Just a caution to book this tour long before you arrive at the island. While we
waited for the last couple to arrive, Bonaire Vista Tours had to turn away several
folks from the ship who'd read about their high scores on Trip Advisor and were
anxious to tour with them, but hadn't made contact ahead of time. The van will
only accommodate about 8 people, so contact them early to reserve your spot.

“A Great Overview of Bonaire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We booked Bonaire Vista Tours on line for a March 6, 2013 cruise ship port visit. Our email request was promptly acknowledged and we were booked. We were 6 in our party. It was easy to find the tour meeting place at the end of the dock. Barbel led our group and 9 others to the nearby aiir conditioned van where her husband Brian was waiting. We had a 3 hour tour including the salt flats, slave houses, and a scenic drive around the island. Brian had cold drinks and took our pictures at a scenic overview. We received the picture at the end of the tour as a memento. Brian was a very informative and pleasant tour guide and I'd highly recommend this company.

“Great tour! Highly recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Booked this tour because of the favorable Trip Advisor reviews. We weren't disappointed. Brian was a most congenial and well-informed guide. The sites were unique and interesting. Brian's new air-conditioned van was great. If you are visiting Bonaire, don't hesitate to book with Bonaire Vista Tours. However, make sure that you book before leaving home, as they were turning away people who didn't have reservations.

“Great tour of a very interesting Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Three of us booked this tour... just outstanding... best one we have had anywhere... there was a wait list of people wanting to go that were turned away. Brian was great commentator, and covered whole island. Wish all tour companies were run this way

Our 2/15/13 10 day Emerald Princess tour group of 14 booked our private tour with Bonaire Vista Tours well in advance of our 2-21-13 port call. Owner/Operators .. Barbel & Brian were very helpful in our on-line booking process, extremely prompt email replies and provided advance info on when & where to meet in both written & photo details. Our tour group met Barbel at the designated location, was introduced to their "new-family-additon" .. the new baby is beautiful and Brian then proceeded to provide a most interesting & informative Bonaire Tour day - visiting all the key attractions - on a round-the-island adventure.

Brian could not have been more hospitable - offering detailed island information, answering ALL of our questions, providing fun-comments, rest-stops and refreshments. We really did see & do it all on this excellent Bonaire island tour within our limited port time. Then ... the unexpected - Brian had taken photos of each couple at a very scenic stop - only to present us each with a beautiful photo at the next stop all done completely from his comfortable new vechicle. Were we impressed - ABSOULTELY! Is Bonaire Vista Tour good ... we think ABSOULTELY THE BEST ON BONAIRE. If your plans include a stop on the beautiful island of Bonaire - then look no further than Bonaire Vista Tours!

NO - I have no involvement with this tour company other than to say that of all of our tours on this cruise Bonaire Vista Tours was absolutely The Best. Check it out - you can not go wrong. FJG
