“Can't Say Enough Good Things About This Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I read great things about Irie Tours on Cruise Critic, so checked out the website to see what excursions were available. We chose the East Side tour which included a drive over the Juliana Bridge (which offered a great view of the city), through the old Jewish neighborhood and the historic synagogue, a quick stop at the Curacao Liquor distillery, through the upscale residential area in the Spanish Water Bay area. Our main point of interest was a one hour stop at a beach by a resort. We were not disappointed. We did not bother to rent lounge chairs as we stayed in the water for the entire hour. For $20 per person, the three hour bus tour included all of the beer (Amstel ponies), bottled water and soda you wanted. Halfway through the trip the tour driver, Ariel, asked the folks sitting closest to the coolers to see if we were running low on beverages. When they reported that we were low on beer, Ariel made a call to Gary who met us a few miles later at the side of the road with a fresh cooler of beer. Gary later took over as tour driver.

The folks at Irie Tours are great. Making reservations was easy and they were certain to follow up on any requests. Curacao was a stop on our cruise and although Irie Tours also accommodates non-cruisers visiting Curacao, they made sure that someone waving an Irie sign was waiting right past the security area to provide directions to where we would find the bus. I was told that even if our cruise ship arrived late, they would still make sure to accommodate all passengers who made reservations. Ariel was very informative, friendly and funny, and it was clear that everyone on the tour had a great time. And hero, Gary, made sure the ride back was equally enjoyable, playing island party music on the stereo. The $20 cost for the tour was more than a bargain and the excursion was a highlight that I recommend to everyone visiting Curacao. I am certain that the other excursions they offer are equally enjoyable and will try them out on future visits.

“Great day w/Irie Tours!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Absolutely wonderful day in Curacao!! We just wish we would have had more time at Sea Aquarium Beach – only 1 hour. The driver and “bartender” were just great! It was obvious they loved showing visitors their island, and they didn’t make you feel like it was a burden to drive you around. All you can drink beer/soda/water is included in the price. A bargain!! We also made some new friends on the bus. I can not recommend them enough!!
