A very good tour in air conditioned comfort by our female German guide who both drove us round and commentated. She had a large bag of photos and objects which were passed round to high light what ever was being described. The guide was perfectly positioned at the cruise terminal and could be seen immediately. We visited all the sites as described on the web site and saw many birds and animals all quickly identified by our guide who frequently stopped to show us interesting views, beaches near flora and fauna. A most enjoyable, informative excursion.
Guide was not waiting for us as stated and tour started at least half hour to 45 min later than scheduled. Guides’s microphone not working so those in back of bus had difficulty hearing. On a scale of 5 I’d give this tour a 3.
Nice overview of the island. Guide was very effective in conveying a local feel. We got to see all the highlights on the island in a small bus. Didn't feel rushed, and there were ample opportunities to get off the bus for photos. It also gave us enough time to explore the local market area by the ship. Would book this tour again.
This was our first time visiting Bonaire and we did so as cruise ship passengers. We absolutely loved Bonaire and this particular excursion did a great deal to contribute to that - - for several reasons. First, it was very easy to meet the company representatives as we departed the ship. They were waiting and ready with everything in place for us. Our guide, Pat, was superb...truly a great ambassador for the island. Not only did we travel around the island but as we did so, Pat shared the history, information about island life, and background of the places we were viewing as we passed by and, particularly, of the places where we stopped. Our driver, Andy, was great about spotting wildlife and making sure we were alerted to sights of interest as we traversed Bonaire. The tour provided a wonderful introduction to Bonaire...just the right amount of information, time and activities. We will return!
This is a beautiful Island, but unless you're in to diving, there's not a great amount to see. I'm glad we booked this tour rather than paying about double on the ship to probably see the same things, but we didn't get to stop at many places to take scenic photos, just got driven around and when we did stop at the slave huts there were so many other tours there as well it was difficult to get a photo without stacks of people in the shot. The beaches are certainly very nice.
This tour started out as bad and got worse. When we got off the ship we followed directions to the Market at the Music booth. We hung out and nobody knew anything about a tour. We left and headed back to the ship, and when we got to the pier there was someone waiting for us. We waited over an hour for others to show up and along comes a couple that was also exactly where they were supposed to be per directions and somehow they too found us. The tour started out and after about 10 minuets this lady doing the tour was like watching the grass grow. No personality at all, and the tour was not what was represented. Rather than seeing some of the sights advertised this woman would go right by points of interest and instead stop and point out every cactus plant we passed. She would not stop and let us get out and take tours except at the small slave houses. This three hour seemed to last about 3 weeks. After the tour she would stop both in town and at the ship to get off. The first stop was in town right where we were supposed to go at the beginning. We got off with a two other couples and we all agreed we got off at the first stop just in case she stopped on the way back to the ship to show us another cactus plant. The worst tour I have ever been on.
