Beauties of Curacao tour

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done the Celebrity tour called Beauties of Curacao.  We are considering it but wanted to here some reviews.

Not sure if this is something you are interested in, but on our Silhouette cruise in December 2018, we arranged a tour through a guide who you can easily find by searching "Around Curacao" (the name of the company).  Tons of great reviews, and ONLY Andy or Sharmond are the drivers.  We did a custom tour with Sharmond (6 hours) and had a fantastic time with him.  Very prompt response to questions, and you may find the cost of a private tour with them is very affordable.  Very comfortable, newer SUV with air conditioning.  Even experienced an out of the way seafood restaurant on the coast - amazing!  Very conscious about getting back to the port in time as their reputation requires that - we were in great hands!

Thanks for the input but I’m confused.  You mention Andy and Sharmond are the drivers but when I go to their website it says we would have to drive ourselves.  Did someone drive you around?

Wow!  Didn't see that coming.....Sharmond drove us - we would not have done our own driving.  Just went to their website and saw what you were talking about.  I wonder if they changed their concept??  Very puzzling indeed...

I’ve sent them an email to get more information.

Reading these last few posts with much interest as we have booked Around Curacao for February 2020.  I also assumed from reviews that one of their guides does the driving so I just checked my confirmation e-mail from Andy and he stated in his reply that we will have "a private driver guide."  Guess I better write him to clarify.  Thank you Sharon K for mentioning what their site says.....either I completely missed it when I initially booked several months ago or they have changed the wording since I booked.
