Great Way to Explore Curcacao
Sep. 2019
I had a great time on this tuk tuk adventure. We got to see some amazing buildings and bridges, students playing in their school yard, stopped to take a picture at the Curacao sign, enjoyed some local food and more! Please be advised that you will have to walk over a bridge to get to where the Tuk Tuks are. It is about a 2-4 minute walk but it still wasn't bad. I enjoyed this tour and would definitely do it again.

Fun
Jan. 2020
Careful when booking this tour if you are on a cruise. We didn't know there was a time change and though we were 30 minutes "early" according to our cruise schedule, we were 30 minutes late island time. However, we lucked out in our driver was available after our "tour" so we were able to have the full hour tour we'd paid for. And what fun to go whizzing around in a tuk tuk with information and lots of photo stops. It's a great way to see the city in a short amount of time.

Don’t do it
Jul. 2019 • Couples
I chose this excursion because of the good reviews. However, to begin with, the picture is deceiving. It shows many Tuk Tuk cars. When we arrived in Curaçao from our ship, we went to find the excursion. We could not find one single solitary Tuk Tuk car. After waiting a half hour, we found one Tuk Tuk car that looked like it was about to break down. I gave the driver my name and he said he was filling in for the driver that was suppose to pick up my boyfriend and I because that driver called in sick. He then told us he could not take us on our excursion because there was only one car and he already had another excursion, even though we had already prepaid for it. Now I’m having a difficult time getting reimbursed. If I could give it a 0 rating I would. Horrible experience.

Best Excursion Ever
Mar. 2019 • Family
This was the most amazing tour and riding in the Tuk Tuk was so much fun. Our guide was the best. He was on time and picked us up right at the pier. He drove us through town and explained the history and culture of his country. We stopped at several spots and did a short walking tour as well. We fit 3 women the the vehicle comfortably although we are pretty small so would not recommend this for everyone. We laughed and learned so much. One of the best things we will all remember from our cruise.

The tour was an hour. Lots of interesting things to see and to here the history of. Could stop any time for photos. Nigel was a great guide. Would recommend this tour. Was some confusion about where to meet on the dock, would be helpful to be given an exact location on where to meet.

Late in coming
Jan. 2019 • Friends
First of all he was late in coming to pick us up at the port and it was very hot, luckily the driver from our first tour was there and kept calling these people to show up. Then 2 did and it turned into an argument, as to who was going to take us. When he got there his excuse was "island time". Once we ot going, we had to walk over the bridge to meet hom on the other side, he said in a minute or 2, it was at least 15 and if we would have know that we would have looked around a bit in the area. The rest was ok, but we had gotten off to a poor start and it colored the rest of the tour.

Not what I expected
May 2018 • Couples
I was excited for this tour according to the " What to Expect", however I didn't get what was offered. First of all they said that the Tuk-Tuk are not allowed on the Queen Emma Bridge therefore we had to go across it ourselves. Secondly the tour description states zoom over Queen Emma, Queen Juliana and Queen Wilhelmina Bridge...we only went across the Queen Wilhelmina Bridge. I was looking forward to going over The Queen Juliana Bridge which is a big deal, that didn't happen either. The idea of a Tuk-Tuk tour was cool yet not practical because you had to hunch down to see the bit of the city we saw. Finally we were dropped off at the end of the Queen Emma Bridge and had to walk back to the cruise ship on our own. I feel that this was false advertising and nothing could be done to bring back that once in a lifetime moment we spent in Curacao.
