Departure Time

9:00 AM
Disembark and meet your driver at the cruise port to start your sightseeing tour on the island of Curacao.

Head towards the more populous east side of the island, past the Queen Juliana Bridge, one of the highest bridges in the world. Visit the Blue Curacao Liquor Factory, source of the neon blue hue of many tropical drinks. Stop for lunch in a local restaurant (own expense) before heading on to the western side of the island.

Historical fishing villages, hilly terrain, and secluded beaches dominate the landscape on this side of the island. The land of three former plantations now host Shete Boca National Park, a 4,447-acre (1,800-hectare) nature preserve. Pause at the park to wander a bit on some of the coastal hiking trails and explore some of the eerie sea caves. Listen to the thundering waves as they crash into the limestone rock walls that line many of the park's secluded beaches.

Stop at the Jan Kok salt flats, part of the island's historically booming salt industry that dates back to the 17th century. Visit Christoffel National Park and Knip Beach before heading back to the cruise port.

I would like to start by saying that...
Cosette H

I would like to start by saying that I never give anything a bad review but after the experience we had with this excursion, I felt compelled to do it. I booked this excursion based on the fact that it said it was an INSIDER PICK, I assumed it has to be good. otherwise I would have picked a different excursion on this island that has some good reviews. We boarded the bus and drove thru town, which was nice then stopped at the liquor factory. After that we got back on the bus kept on driving and driving and driving some more and the driver kept saying we are in the middle of nowhere, the constant thing that everyone kept thinking why are we here then. he pointed out a couple of things out of the window. then he took us to I guess to his friend's restaurant and we sat there for about an hour, we had a couple of drinks because nobody was really hungry but I guess it was the driver's lunch time. After that we went to the caves where we had 20 minutes to enjoy, then to a beautiful sandy beach and the driver said you have 10 minutes to take pictures, really why in the world do I need to take a picture of a beach I did not get to enjoy what's the point? Instead of wasting our time driving and driving in the middle of nowhere as he put it, he could have dropped us off at that beach to enjoy then went and had his precious lunch. What we saw on this excursion could have been done in one to two hours max and it would have been ok but six hours was a total waste of our day, we did not have any time left to see much else in Curacao and when we left we thought Curacao is terrible why even to cruise ships stop there but we heard from other passengers about all the fun stuff they did. You would think the locals would want to show you the best their island have to offer not take you on a goose chase. That day was my twin girls 16th birthday and I thought I booked something nice for them to enjoy, instead they were bored out of their minds and ruined their day which obviously they will never get back. Between my family and my sister's family we paid over $500.00 and ruined our day. I wish I could get my money back. Bottom line if you are thinking about booking this excursion, DON'T. It was the worst experience we've had. I think Viator should take it out of their offering and definitely NOT AN INSIDER PICK.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour...

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour which first took us around the city area and we saw and were given history of the sites and area. Our friendly and knowledgable guide Robert then took us around the island to see the salt flats and yes we saw flamingos, Knip Beach, sea caves and numerous other lookouts that afforded us breathtaking views and fabulous pictures. His pleasant personality and sense of humor bumpy roads became body message time made the tour all the more enjoyable. We felt like we had truly gotten a vast overview of this beautiful Island. At the end of the tour he even made 2 stops one back to the cruise ship and one by the swing bring for those of us who wanted to walk and shop downtown.

Driver came late and started almost one hour later than scheduled without explanation. We went to a distillery, a gift shop with a nice view and an over priced lunch in the middle of no where. This probably provided additional revenue for the driver. The best part of the tour was the caves with the waves crashing over the rocks. Unfortunately, we had only 15 minutes to enjoy this spot because of lunch and the delays.
