    We had a wonderful time with Lee, there were 6 of us in our group. One of our group had injured their leg and was walking with a cane, Lee was considerate and helpful. Did not rush us and provided a fun and informative trip. We also had lunch at a local restaurant and we were able to try some of the local cuisine. Which was really good. Would definitely recommend Lee and "Around Curacao Tours to anyone looking for a great trip.

    We were impressed with the friendliness and service from most of the staff. The ride to Klein was a bit bumpy and we were warned of this in the introductory debriefing. A few passengers ended up getting sick but were all well tended to by the crew. We were happy to enjoy some time on the catamaran net during the ride over. The captain's comments about the splashing in the front of the boat on the ride over was spot on. Lunch was very tasty and there was plenty of food. Klein Curaçao was a very nice beach but heed the warning from the crew re being good swimmers.. nearby snorkeling was unremarkable but we did not venture into the darker area to explore the snorkeling there. Our only gripe was the unnecessary wait for our initial departure because of a group who arrived 15 minutes after the 9 am scheduled departure.

    The tour was very educational as we learned how the Curacao liqueur is made. Our tour guide (pictured below, don't know his name) was very kind and we have no complaints! We enjoyed the samples and the cocktail at the end. There are lots of cocktail options to choose from - I went with Mango Madness (frozen drink) and my husband went with the Blue Tai. I think we both preferred my mango one, but they were both good!

    Frendelys or "Delys", a store cashier, is who I really wanted to praise!! I accidentally left my cell phone in a taxi and she immediately knew who the cab driver was after a brief description and she stopped everything to help me. I was very shaken up because I only had a short time before our cruise would be taking off for the next port. She helped me to contact him and get him to come back to bring me my phone. I can't thank God for her enough! She was a godsend!

    My family hired DLN Ecursionsto give us a unique and tailored experience of our day in Curacao on 6/2/2022.   Prior to our visit we were able to correspond with a trip coordinator to nail down the types of things we wanted to see and do on the island.  Days before sailing we received a confirmation email with good instructions on how to find the tour contact, and our contact was professionally dressed and on time when we exited the ship.  Our ATV and driver were more than ready for our excursion.  Chen gave us a brief overview of the vehicle and types of terrain we’d be seeing and got us all situated in the vehicle.   They came prepared with goggles (the ATV lacks a windshield) and sunscreen if we needed them. Though it seats 4 passengers, the middle seat in the back is suited to a smaller member of the party, and if all are full adults, I would recommend keeping the party to 3 instead of 4.   

     

    We had requested four things on our trip:  authentic food, flamingoes, island views and snorkeling.  Our first stop was at a local lake that attracts flamingoes from neighboring Aruba/Bonaire.  We were fairly close to the birds and Chen explained that these birds can’t get food on the other islands and have begun to set up home there.  They arrive as white birds and start getting more pink the more shrimp and fish they are able to get.  It was really nice to be the only ones looking at these particular birds at the time.  It was on the side of a road, but the road wasn’t excessively busy so it wasn’t bad.  Our next stop took us into the underbrush on a less developed road that led to the top of one of the hills on the island.  It afforded a beautiful view of the bays.  Chen explained that the nearby oil storage tanks were no longer being used and were to be developed into other areas soon, though the environmental cleanup may take longer than expected.  He knew a lot about the history of oil refining on the island and its contribution to the local economy. 

     

    Our third stop was a non-crowded beach in a cove that had some wonderful snorkeling.  We were supposed to be denied entry, as one of the other cruise ships had “rented” the cove, but because our tour guide had a relationship with all the staff on that beach, we were able to get a spot too.  He brought beach chairs, water, and modern snorkel masks for this.  These masks cover the entire face so the nose can breathe too, and though it took a little getting used to (if you are used to the 2-piece snorkels), it ended up being a more pleasant experience.  I would suggest they keep at least one 2-piece snorkel on hand because the single units would not seal with glasses, and one of our party had to keep on glasses to have a good experience.  The fish and coral in this cove were smaller than other excursions we’ve done, but the variety was just as wide and the water was so pristine that it was still a great experience.  The only downside to this beach was that the entry point is very rocky and can be hard to balance and walk (imagine large round pebbles piled up). 

     

    All that snorkeling worked up some hunger and they had prepared some delicious bruschetta as a snack (all local produce) along with an assortment of juices, sodas and water to complement.

     

    We left the first beach and travelled to another.  This beach was not nearly as rocky and had just as many and varied fish.  It was located below a cliff and attracted other types of sea life.  We enjoyed this one as much.

     

    The next stop was on to lunch.  Lunch was ordered in advance as one of our members has dietary restrictions.  The restrictions were treated with utmost respect and did not impact the quality of the food.  Each member who ordered seafood received a plate with no fewer than 4 seafood options all cooked with local spices and methods.  The sides offered were traditional (fries) or local, and we opted for the local side which I can only describe as “if masa married refried beans”.  It was quite tasty and more than enough food.  The restaurant itself was on a cliff overlooking another cove where locals and tourists were “cliff jumping” into the water.

     

    The last stop was a lovely surprise as we drove down to the cove we had been overlooking to discover that it had sea turtles.  These turtles hang out in this cove because fisherman clean their catch and discard the remains into the cove.  We saw at least 4 juvenile to adult sea turtles swimming right under the dock where we were standing.  That was amazing!

     

    In all, Curacao itself has more of a modern, developed vibe but Chen took us to the more authentic areas and helped us have a unique experience.  I would highly recommend this tour if you want to learn about the island and experience its ruggedness and distinctions outside of the typical tourist experience.

    This was a terrific tour through beautiful and varied landscape, all brought to life and set in its historical and geological context by our expert guide Nathan. He is knowledge, gentle humor and evident pride in his country shone through. The driving was also excellent and we enjoyed every minute of our day. We really liked the local food. We visit a local restaurant with an amazing view. They had different kind of meats and conch. We also had some homemade snack Nathan prepared for us.
