All in all we had a nice time. We booked this tour of the island on our own, and we do not regret it. They literally had unlimited Heineken, Coke, Sprite, and bottled water. We had a bus full of people and we did not run out of anything. For $20 a head, it was quite the bargain.

We stopped in Curacao on a Carnival Cruise. Here a couple of hints to make your trip more enjoyable. 1. When you get off of the boat, walk through the hotel shopping area, then continue walking through the Fort. After you pass some more shops and bars, you will find a round-a-bout where you will board the party bus. 2. Get there early to get a seat on the benches in the back of the bus. The benches are way more comfortable than the school bus seats designed to carry kids, not adults. 3. The buses made two stops, one at the Curacao Liquor factory for a brief tour and a restroom break. Then we toured some more and stopped at a beach for an hour were you could get in the sand and water if you wanted too, and use the restroom, or grab a Presidente at one of the beach bars. 4. The roads in Curacao are not very smooth. It could be a bumpy ride. We would do it again and recommend this tour to our friends.

What a great tour company! We were part of a large group that filled two buses that were also filled with soda, water, & beer. We visited the local distellery then headed to the beach where we had a stop to check out some pink flamingos at the salt flats. We had a 2hr stop at a beautiful beach where we also got a bit to eat. I would reccomend this company for a tour next time you visit Curacao!

We went to Curacao on the Carnival Breeze on 5/1/13 and had a blast, we had a group that took up 2 buses. Tour includes soda, water and beer. I wanted diet soda, so they stopped and the owner actually sent diet soda for our group. We visited the distellery and then went on a bumpy but informational tour to the beach. Great snorkel beach, bathroom was a little small. When getting stuff for the beach I dropped by wallet in the seat. Upon return to the bus, the driver had kept it safe and had all my cash, i.d. and credit card. Ver nervous, but what a trustworthy driver and informational guide.

We and 20 other friends took this tour. The staff/guide were very good and friendly. We made a reservation before our cruise because there were so many of us and we wanted to be on the same bus. They had our name as soon as we walked up and welcomed us. The guide was very informative. The bus was very comfortable and not hot at all since it has all open windows. The price included all the soda, water, and beer you wanted plus entry to the beach. I still can't believe they only charge $20 for the tour. Great time!
