Gone Caribe The Best Tour of our Vacation

Recommended Posts

Just returned back from our cruise on the Explorer of the Seas we were in Curacao Jan 2/20 and we toured with Gone Caribe. We prebooked a private tailor made tour with Gone Caribe and we were not disappointed.  We had Jo as our tour guide as Jessica was touring another couple that day.  Jo was very friendly and had lots to tell us about the island.  Jo was good at taking us to places between the big buses.  We showed up to snorkel with the turtles and there was a large group but Jo said they would be gone in about ten min which they were and it was so much nicer when the large groups were out of the water.  I would definitely book with Gone Caribe again if we ever get back to Curacao.

Good to know-thanks for the info.  We’ve been to Curacao several times and hope to go again one year soon.

We met Jo at the Star Bucks just outside the port then we hoped into Jo's SUV and we headed west to look at some flamingos then we went to the beach with the turtles he recommended 45 min but we enjoyed it so much we probably stayed 1.25 hours then we went to a "national" park where we stopped at two different spots one with a bit of a blow hole and you could see the rugged cliffs and coast line and another with a small cave you could go into.  We then stooped at a nice restaurant that had a view of a nice bay and across the bay there was a 40' cliff jump that you could do if you wanted we decided to wait and do the shorter cliff jump at the next beach.  We were hopping to order Iguana but they were out that day:(  We then headed to the islands most popular beach that has the smaller cliff jump that we did.  My daughter did it  a few times as she wanted to perfect her back flip:)  My wife loves foreign country grocery stores so we had Jo take us to one so that we could check it out for a bit.  We then had Jo try to track down a post office for us as we had a few postcards we wanted to mail.  He returned us to the port and we had a few min to do some quick souvenir shopping and that was our day.  We paid $90 a person so a bit more then the Irene Tour that is somewhat similar but was nice to have the private guide and have Jo get us to places between the tour buses.

How long was your tour ? And did they charge the same price for kids ?

I believe it was Kleine Knip.  We also could have gone at another place close by Playa Forti where we stopped for lunch that was probably twice as high but we opted to just do the smaller jump.

Was it Grote Knip (Kenepa Grandi)?
