We used Sand and Stilettos on July 17th, 2014 during our Carnival cruise. Gabby was absolutely wonderful! She is professional in every way. She went out of her way to accommodate our group of 6 people and our day was perfect. Thank you Gabby!

“A magical, sureal day in paradise”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

This is my 3 erd time in Curacao..went with the kids before and really could not wonder too far. This time just the 2 of us. We spent more time out in the surroundings than in the hotel. But what really made my trip, the icing in the cake was Gaby. Always on time. Picked us up at the airport and brought us back. Always on time. Then we spent a whole day with her going to the other side of the island beach hopping. In between she would tells us the stories and features of everything we saw around us. She knows the island and its history like the palm of her hands. Gaby is sweetheart, we had so much fun not only with the spectacular views but the lively, educated and funny conversation. A few points about Sand and Stilettos:
-Gaby's car is spotless in and out. Very comfortable ride and excellent air conditioning.
-Gaby wears American cloths.. HAHAHAHA!! Good for the American economy.
-Gaby does not charge enough for the excellent service she provides. It is the best deal in the island.
-We were also looking for real state. Gaby sent me all the information I needed. She is great!
-You will not have any problem talking about Fútbol, Shopping in USA, Europe, the islands and Electronic music..her passions!
I will be posting pictures of the impressive beaches we went to soon. Still trying to adapt to my regular rat-race life here.
Thank you Gaby!!! From our harts!! Golbert and Kim Isern

Thanks Golbert and Kim, for your hilarious and heartfelt review! I had to laugh, especially at the 'good for the American economy' bit :) It was my pleasure to spend the day with you guys and enjoyed the all the talks we had. You know where to find me if you need anymore info. The next time you come back we'll go see the other side of the island! Warm regards, Gaby

“An unique side of Curacao.”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

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!

“VIP treatment from Gaby!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

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!

“Gaby is an awesome tour guide and she lives on a beautiful island.”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

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.
