If you take a ship's shore excursion, rather than a private tour (I, obviously, recommend Martin Tours), you'll probably save money but you'll definitely miss many sites inaccessible by the standard Curacao tour bus. I had booked our tour with Martin over a year in advance.... More

We booked a full day tour with Martin as we wanted to see several things across different parts of the island. Via email, I was able to work out a plan with Martin so we could see and do all we wanted in one day as we didn't want to tour for longer than that. Car is clean and roomy.... More

Curacao was a port stop on a recent Holland America cruise and thanks to the great reviews on TripAdvisor, I contacted Martin about a tour. His communication was excellent and I knew my friend and I found a new friend. We left the tour's itinerary completely up to Martin except for the fact that we were interested in the Jewish... More
