Very interesting tour and capable guide
Feb. 2020
We appreciated the knowledge of our guide, Kenneth(?). He was very informative about the area and showed us lots of interesting things/places on the island. His microphone "shorted out" during the trip, however, so every time he wanted to share information, he had to pull over, get out of the trunk (we were seated on benches in truck bed) and tell us the information. Not really his fault, but we may have missed out on some of the narrative. The places he took us to were terrific! Caves with bats, a hillside overlooking a beautiful lake, churning waves on the coastline with fantastic blowholes! It was great! However, be aware that the off-pavement roads are n.o.t. kept up and are extremely rutty and potholes abound.

An amazing tour with a wonderful guide!!
Jan. 2020 • Couples
This trip is well worth the money. Long was a fabulous guide and taught us so much about the wildlife, plants, and history of the island. Many of the sites visited are on rocky dirt roads inaccessible by our rental car, so the Jeep was much needed.

At the restaurant near Playa Piskado, I recommend cliff jumping!! A great way to end our vacation. :)

Exceeded expectations: personal, fun, informative
We took our family of 6–kids ages 15, 13, 11, and 8–on this tour. Our guide, Long, went above and beyond showing with pride beautiful pockets of this amazing island. Shete Boka is a must-see. The thunderous power of the ocean mesmerized us all. The kids also loved the desert scenes and cave. The views and photo ops Long exposed us to will be cemented in our memories forever. He was very kind, informative, and accommodating. He enjoyed the kids, too. After taking this tour we have a much better sense of the island and places to return to. This tour will most likely be the highlight of our family vacation.

Beautiful scenery, enthusiastic guide
Nov. 2019
We really enjoyed the off road experience of Curacao and its natural beauty. The tour guide genuinely loved his island and that enthusiasm made the trip more enjoyable. Some parts of the trip seemed too long as the scenery hadn't changed and it would have been nice to visit the opposite side of the island too. Overall had a great time. Thank you!

Hi, A little bit delayed but we still want to THANK YOU for your review on your tour with us. We are happy that you enjoyed the tour. With the full day tour you also see more of the opposite side of the island where the beaches are located. Maybe next time when you can back and you tour with us again, we can also show you this side of the island. Thanks again for sharing your feedback with us. Sunny regards Bettina

Great Day in Curacao
Nov. 2019
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke several different languages. The tour is in an open air jeep, so be ready for a little bit of a bumpy ride.

It was a great way to see the island away from the port. The highlight for us was going in bat caves and a shoreline cave where the waves come rolling in under your feet and of course 'the pistol' where the waves come spewing through a hole in the rock.

We still had some free time after the tour to walk around Willemstad before we needed to get back on board. I truly enjoyed this tour and recommend it to cruise passengers .. it is also great for visitors staying on the island too!

Explore the natural beauty of Curacao
Our small group met Alan, our guide, outside the port gates. Prior to leaving he began informing us of the islands history and he didn’t stop until the tour ended. He was very well educated in various sciences as well and shared that information with us.
We visited all of the locations listed and had ample time to explore and take pictures. Our small group encountered large groups throughout the morning and I was so glad we were getting a more personalized experience.
This tour really gets off the beaten path. Our 4x4 traversed the rugged back roads and the coastal region. If you require a smooth ride, join the dozens of people in the motorcoaches and skip this tour. Your access to the island and its sites will be restricted and you’ll be disappointed.
(The site limited the number of pics I could post and that’s too bad.)

Dear Steven, Thank you so much for your review and your feedback. Alan really enjoyed showing you Curacao and especially this beautiful part of the island rarely visited by tourists. We hope you will return to Curacao and if you do let's us know: the island still has many hidden treasures to discover With kind regards Curacao Actief

Great time and guide
Nov. 2019 • Couples
We went on the jeep tour and enjoyed every minuten of it! It was a tour by a local guide named Long. He showed us the locations mentioned on the tour when we booked it and more! We learned so many things about Curaçao (being "former locals") that we didn't know and saw a lot of beautiful breathtaking places thanks to him. We recommend this tour for sure! Take your camera with you and if you can, an onderwater camera also to make pictures while you swim with turtles! Long and Curacao-actief tx for the great time and care! We Will surely be back!

Dear Viangelo, Thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with Long and that you enjoyed the Wonderful World of Water Outback Safari Tour with us. I am so proud to read that our tour even for former locals showed you many new things. (btw: Jeffrey, the owner who met you at the Sunscape says hi and to let you know that your feedback has made his day) Thanks again for your review. We appreciate it very much. Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back some time again. Sunny regards, Bettina
