During my business trips to Curacao, it was always pretty standard for me. Fly in, check in at the hotel, have my meetings and then in the evening fly back to Aruba. When I came into contact with Gaby she convinced me to let her take me upon a tour of Curacao, to show me a different side of this beautiful island.... and I am so happy I stayed!
Not only did she come to pick me up every time at the hotel to go out for dinner at very trendy restaurants, got to the local beaches and shops but we also went to the swankiest clubs to mingle with the Young Urban Professionals of Curacao. Due to her good connections on the island we even attended the FIFA World Cup Tour at the luxurious Santa Barbara Hotel where we had dinner and enjoyed a cocktail or two. In the few days I spent with Gaby, I gathered more valuable business contacts for our company that in all the prior trips together. So for me it was a win win situation, not only did I get to see a totally different side to Curacao, but because of her complete understanding of my needs coming to this island, she totally managed with her tailor made approach, to get me more high level business contacts which ultimately resulted in our company having a stronger presence on Curacao. For this and much more I am very grateful to her.... Thank you Gaby!

Traveled to Curacao a solo senior female and lucked up on Sand & Stiletto. Three days of tour itinerary; tailored to my likes and interests; it doesn't get any better than that! Punctual, professional, and personable, and yet Gaby made me feel like I was spending 3 days with a good friend. It was easy to see Gaby truly cares for and is proud of the island. I really appreciated that and it definitely contributed to my island experience. Gaby is an awesome find!

My family and I took a cruise to Curacao last week and Gaby was our tour guide. She is an awesome tour guide and very informative. I suggest if you are going to go to the island use her. I will go back to this island, stay there and use her again. Thanks again Gaby for a great time.

My friends and I visited beautiful Curaçao last year. Fortunately for us, Gaby was more than happy to give us suggestions for things to do around the island and even took us out on an amazing night on the town. Needless to say, whether you are looking for the must-see things on the island or you are looking for that local flavor, Gaby is extremely helpful!

Thanks again Gaby!
