“Good value for money”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We booked this trip after reading reviews on trip advisor. We booked it well in advance (about 6 months) so there was a little bit of confusion on both sides for pick up times. We had about 3 emails with different times and pick up. We took notice of the last email and waited outside the port as requested at 9.30. Nobody turned up so we started to walk into the town very disappointed. As we walked an Irie tour bus passed us and we flagged it down. The driver shouted that there was a bus further along the road. When we got there we explained to the driver and he said the bus there didn't leave until 11.30 and we didn't fancy hanging about for a couple of hours. The driver was very apologetic for the confusion and begged us to come back and he would knock $10 off the trip for us both. We said we would think about it and went off. We decided to go back and when we did the driver remembered us and thanked us for coming back and he had reserved a seat at the front of the bus for us, which we thought was a very nice gesture. We were glad we went back and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip, stopping at a beach and distillery etc. Well done to Irie Tours for good customer service.

“ariel and uncle bob”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

took a carnival cruise to curacao and took an irie tour and totally loved it. trip got off a little rocky with a really obnoxious honey boo boo like woman on our bus.by the end everyone just tuned this woman out. anyway we got on the bus and were givin a beer, water and pop. ariel took us all around town and to a bunch of lookouts to take pictures. all along talking about this wonderful island. went to the sea aquarium beach for sunset for an hour and a half. got back to the city at dark and it was really beautiful with all the lights and the pontoon bridge was all lit up with Christmas lights. airel you are definently one of the best tour guides ive ever had and uncle bob id love to have your job being a bartender in the back of a bus. loved this tour. take it you wont regret it.

“quality cheap tour”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We were in town 2-10pm Christmas day, so there wasn't a lot to choose from and we were glad to find Irie. Super cheap at $25/person, includes beer, water, soda. We rode around the island and saw the highlights. You are on a full size bus with no windows. It might be hot in the summer, but it was perfect in December. You finish up with some time at the beach, admission included, which was quite relaxing. I wouldn't do it a second time, but it was perfect for my one cruise day in town.

“Fun Day thanks to Irie”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Thanks to the Tripadvisors who had recommended this tour. $20 due to a group discount was such a bargain for the day we had. We saw so much of the island, heard the history, got the lay of the land, stopped at the distillery, plus even some beach time. Our driver was wonderfully informative and the office staff very easy to work with. thanks for showing us your island.
