We had a blast on this tour. We arrived on a cruise ship, and chose to book the "short version" beach hopping tour. We were able to tour so much of this beautiful country, and stop at 3-5 attractions along the way. The Boka was very pretty, we got lots of great pictures. It was great to see such a natural wonder. The cliff jumping was very high! I didn't anticipate it being so high - but a few on our tour group decided to jump anyhow! The first beach we stopped at 'Knip" was perfect. The water was clear and beautiful. The sand was filled with rock and coral, but that is what Curacao is made up of, so that is to be expected. The second beach we visited 'Porto Marie" was a little disappointing. There really wasn't a sandy entry to the water. The "beach" here was completely made up of fist-sized rocks and 6" chunks of broken coral. There was a dock with a ladder for easier entry. On the way back, we stopped to see the flamingos - this made for some great evening pictures!

This was a wonderful way to spend our day on Curacao. I would absolutely recommend this excursion. Thanks Dennis!

We walked off our ship, through the fort and towards the roundabout where we were met by our tour guide for the day, Eddy Pinas. We hit the jackpot as we were the only people on his 5 hour island tour that day so off we headed with Eddy and ourselves in his mini-bus - it was personal service!!
Eddy is very knowledgeable about the history and culture in the island, and we enjoyed his stories about life under slavery and the battles that took place. Eddy took us to see the flamingos first in two different locations and both times there were lots of them there. Then it was off to our first WOW beach, Port Marie Beach. This was absolutely beautiful, there was only a few other people there so we had a great time snorkeling and relaxing. Next it was off to the National Park where the coastal scenery was stunning. As it was windy the waves were very high so the photo opportunities were amazing.
After stopping at a cliff jumping spot, we then stopped at Kenapa Beach, another WOW beach, where the colour of the water was caribbean turquoise. Again we had a brilliant time snorkeling and relaxing.
There were a few other stops along the way but these were the highlights. Eddy provided great commentary, plenty of drinks, and the snorkeling gear too. We really enjoyed the personal service and would advise anyone who is visiting Curacao for a day to try Eddy and Irie Tours.

I had heard so many great things about Irie Tours so we gave them a try. We were not disappointed!!!!!! The tour was fun and educational. This was our first trip to Curacao and we really learned a lot. We have been to most of the main islands in the Caribbean and Curacao certainly is among the best!!!!!! Thank you Irie Tours for introducing us to your island in such a fun way. We also had the best and cutest bus "attendant" who served us our beverages!!!!!!

My husband an I got a chance to do Irie's east side tour with another couple on 2/17/15 As a travel agent, I am always looking for tours to recommend. Sadira & her husband were at the pier waiting when we got off the ship, although you cannot miss the bright colored buses! We got on the bus and after a short wait for others we were on our way. Refreshments are there for you, water, soda & beer. The bus is open so it was nice with fresh air and very comfortable. Curacao is beautiful! Our driver Bob was a perfect tour guide and made the tour even more fun! The stops were arranged very well and you have plenty of time to take pictures and sample Curacao,.. all 7 flavors at the Liqueur factory! The stop at the beach was perfect to relax and have a snack, while gazing at that beautiful water! This tour cannot be beat for the price and wonderful service you receive! I am looking forward to the all day beach tour with Irie Tours, my next time in Curacao!
I highly recommend this tour, an I highly recommend Irie!
Thank you for a great time in Curacao!!
