Know More about this tour

Travel around the entire island of Curacao on this exciting shore excursion! Your driver will pick you up at your cruise ship port to begin your six-hour island tour.

Start your Curacao tour on the east side of the island. As the more populated side of the island, the eastern area offers much to see. Pass the Queen Juliana Bridge, one of the highest bridges in the world at a height of 185 feet (56 meters). Next, visit the famous Blue Curacao Liquor Factory, built in the 1800s.You'll have time to enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant (not included), before continuing on to the west side of Curacao.

On the west side of Curacao, youll see hilly landscapes, pretty cove beaches and former fishing villages. This rural area is home to Shete Boca National Park, a 4,447-acre (1,800-hectare) preserve formed from three old plantations. Stop at the park and see many coastal hiking trails and sea caves. Discover isolated beaches and rough Caribbean waters as they crash into tall limestone rock walls.

Before heading back to your cruise ship, youll have the chance to admire the Jan Kok salt flats, dating all the way back to 1650.

    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 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.
