If you are looking for a great tour that highlights some of the natural features of Curacao this is your tour. Best of the West takes you to interesting places in Curacao's national parks. We got good looks at a number of exotic to us bird and lizard species. We also got to have close encounters with sea turtles while swimming at one of the beaches.

Great tours require great tour guides. We had one on this trip. Hetty has spent a long time on the island and is well versed in its history, flora and fauna. She maintained a relaxed pace on the trip, yet got us all to where we needed to be when we needed to be there. She made participants feel comfortable so that everyone on the trip was willing to don masks and snorkels and swim with the turtles, even those who had not snorkeled before.

My only concern about this tour, and what kept it from a perfect rating, was incorrect information we received ahead of the tour. We were trying to decide whether to wear our swim suits under our clothing and asked the concierge at our hotel the Avila whether there was a changing room at the beach. She said there was, so we packed our suits. There was in fact no changing room and my wife and I had to get into our suits awkwardly behind beach towels on the bus. I'm not sure if the problem was between the tour operator and our hotel, or was purely the hotel.

Now we and you, the reader know better. I would still recommend this tour as a great value.

EXCELLENT!!! What a great overview of the island. Heddy was an AMAZING tour guide! So fun and knowledgeable! Small group was nice. AC bus and lunch were great!!! WAY beyond our expectations and a great way to see the real Curacao. Would definitely recommend to people of all ages. We were family of 5, with 2 college age daughters and one teen daughter. The snorkeling was amazing. Right off the beach. LOVED everything about it. Great trip! Thanks!!
