Toured with them in May when we were on the Carnival Breeze and had a blast! I'm in a wheelchair and they carried me on and off the bus even though I had people with me who would do it. The whole staff is top notch and our driver Ariel was awesome! He looks nothing like the mermaid. Plus unlimited drinks are a extra perk

This is another "return trip" review. Like the Dive Bus, Irie Tours is a company that helps draw visitors like myself back to Curacao. Don't get me wrong, Curacao has many great experiences other than diving and tours, but it takes a strong foundation to make that happen. Irie Tours does just that.

Last year, it was two of us traveling. This year, four of us traveled and booked a beach tour. We were able to customize the tour through e-mail communication with Sadira and Dennis. I asked about going to the Aloe Farm, the Ostrich Farm, and if we could go to a couple of specific beaches. Everything was good to go at a very fair price - inclusive of unlimited drinks on the tour and lunch provided at a beach stop.

The tour leader was Bob. He picked us up at the hotel right on time and gave us a great deal of information as we made our way to the ostrich farm area. Both the aloe and ostrich locations are pretty close to each other, if not right next door, so that was an easy start to the tour. We went from there to visit the north side of the island to see the waves and caves. We visited several beaches for photo opportunities and for snorkeling. Lunch was provided at Porto Marie and was very good. Bob made sure that we were well taken care of and that we had plenty of stops during the tour. Towards the end, we made a stop at Fort Nassau, which provided some of the best pictures you can get of nearly the entire island. It was a great finale before going back to the hotel.

Many kudos and thanks to Dennis, Sadira, and Bob for making this yet another tremendous experience with Irie Tours. It was so great that when we visited the downtown area two days later, we thought about taking the east side tour when the bus came back. :) But there is always next time and I can certainly see no reason why there won't be another great tour with Irie in the future on visits to Curacao. Thank you all for helping make the trip a great one!

This tour was a lot of fun. While riding on the party bus, we learned a lot of the history of Curaçao. Our driver narrated our tour in Dutch and English...effortlessly. The second tour guide ensured everyone on board had a beer, soda, or water. And they never ran out of anything! They advertised a two hour tour, but we were gone three hours...which was better as we were not rushed at any of the stops. If you want to see this island in a relaxed way, this tour is for you.

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!
