With this private excursion, you can go any place you choose during the 7 hours duration; if your ship is in port for less time the excursion can be adjusted for you! Maybe visit the historic locations in Curacao or one of the many museums. Go sightseeing, snorkeling or visit an ancient fort. The choices are many and they are all yours. The guide will simply mention times of availability and distances required, which will help you to build your own itinerary. Enjoy Curacao!

You'll start this great day just outside your Curacao cruise terminal when you meet with your guide. Then you can either discuss with him your ideas or have them in hand and you'll be taken wherever you wish. Please keep in mind, entrance fees and lunch are not included, but you can ask the driver to suggest a location for a great lunch. Then you will get into your air-conditioned transportation and head out (the vehicle will depend on your group size either an SUV or a 14-passenger van).

Curacao has so much to offer that you might have trouble selecting which sites you want to visit. There's the historic area of Willemstad, one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. This was merely a trading settlement at a natural harbor that began back in 1634. But, the town just kept on growing, for centuries. Thankfully, there are several unique districts with architecture that reflects styles from the Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal. Kept well preserved these always make for great photo opportunities.

Then there's Shete Boka Park. This is a National Park where you will discover the rugged countryside, waves thundering into caverns, and steps cut into the rocks that will lead you straight down into the mouth of one of the caverns. Just kick back and watch the surf rumble in. Then walk along limestone bluffs for a fantastic view of Curacao's even more rugged north coast. The entrance fee is not included, please consider $6.00 USD per person if you want to visit this place) 

If snorkeling is more your style, there is a great spot on the eastern side of Caracas Bay, the Tug Boat. It's a small wreck but it is covered in sponges and colorful corals. This is the home of parrot fish and yellowtail snappers, maybe you are even lucky and see some seahorses! You can always ask your driver to take you to the West side of the island to explore different snorkeling sites. Just indicate on your order that you will need snorkel gear and it will be provided.

For true history buffs, there is Fort Beekenburg. This fort was built to defend the Spanish Water in 1703. At that time, it was one of the few places where one could go easily from sea to land. It was money well spent because the fort kept the British and pirates out of Curacao.

Finally, if you are a museum lover, you have 8 separate choices. You can select from the Savonet Museum to the Kura Hulanda. There is a Jewish Heritage Museum and a Catholic Fort Church Museum. Maritime displays, the arts, and history, you can find it here in Curacao.

Don't forget, you can ask your private guide to stop for lunch at any time, depending on where you want to go, the lunch price varies normally it can be $20.00 USD per person. So come live it up like a VIP with an itinerary prepared by you. You can also choose to work with the guide when you arrive to see how each activity interacts with distance and time. When the day comes to an end, you'll be returned to your meeting place close to your Curacao cruise ship pier.

Fabulous way to see the Island!

Our Group of 5 booked this private tour in Curacao and we got \"Big Larry\" as our guide and he was fantastic! He was so much fun and knowledgeable. We went to our meeting point outside the cruise port and met our guide!He did not have a sign and give us a little razzing about booking on line ,but when he figured out I was not gonna tell him my name or show him the paper....He said come on Miss Bowles lets go! LOL I told him I knew better. So we knew we were in for some fun after that.LOL We started off at the Curacao Distillery and had a nice tour that included a drink at the end. The cost was $12. Very nice and learned so much! We even purchased some blue Curacao to take home. Then we headed to the salt flats to see the wild flamingos feeding and that was so cool! We went to a local market and picked up drinks and snacks and then ended up at a beach where the fisherman were in with their catch. There were giant turtles coming in to feed on what the Fisherman were cleaning! It was so cool! We went by another little local place and got a local beer..Cash only small bills and ended our evening checking out the sunset at a few local beaches. It was so beautiful! Then on our way back to Willemstad Big Larry broke out the Karoke and serenaded us with his own renditions! It was so fun! We even got in on the singing too! He set the mood with a little mini colored disco ball in the van! We had the best day and got to see so much more than we could have done with a cruise line excursion! We had him for 7 hours and then he dropped us off back in town. We were able to go into town for a drink and some wings before walking back across the Queen Emma bride and back to the ship. So happy we got to be in port till 10:30pm. It was worth every penny and the cost was reasonable split between 5 of us! We really loved this experience and would do it again in a heartbeat! Big Larry was the best and took good care of us! Big Larry always had water available and would stop anywhere we wanted! One of our best days!

This was our first venture with a private island sightseeing excursion. It was FABULOUS. I highly recommend this manner of shore excursion. We got to visit over six points of interest, instead of just one. Our driver was \"Island\" Larry and he was terrific. He taught us some of the local language and guided us to truly local sites. His humor was appreciated by all in our group.

Our family was on a Royal Caribbean cruise when we stopped in Curacao. We chose a private tour as we were traveling with our grandparents and wanted something that we could customize. Curacao Island Sightseeing was really great. The guide took us on a fun tour of the city and we ended our trip at Mambo Beach. It was beautiful. It had cabanas, chairs, a bar, plenty of shopping and really good food.

Our guides were Patricia with Hans in training. They were fantastic! Patricia was very knowledgeable and kept us on schedule. We visited the distillery, caves, national park and even swam with the turtles! Having visited the island before, I wasn't really looking forward to this visit but this excursion gave me a new love for the island. When we come back again, we will be booking with Patricia again!

Our group of 9 had such a memorable time. Our guide was “Big Larry” and he was awesome. I did some research before our trip and made a list of places we wanted to go and Larry took us to each with a couple added stops. He gave us a lot of info about the island and taught us some of their words and correct pronunciations since similar pronunciations mean something completely different...lol. A couple in our group wanted to try iguana soup and he got them a small cup to try. They said it tasted like chicken. We had karaoke in the van and laughed so hard we cried. Our group came away from this tour with nothing but wonderful memories. I have to give “Big Larry” kudos because he is part of those wonderful memories. I would recommend this tour and ask for Big Larry. I would like to say Shoreexcursioneer was very easy to work with and always very prompt anytime I had a question.

We booked this private excision for family and friends to have an excursion tailored to our interests that allowed us to make the most of the time on the island. We were delighted with our choice! It was good fun and all of the logistics went smoothly. We'll do it again next time on Curacao.
