Tour was great...

Bonaire North and South

We were disappointed with the tour. We selected the more expensive tour thinking we would see more but it was basically a car ride around the island. We saw where the distillery was but did not go in as apparently a reservation was required. Did not see the donkey sanctuary. No snack or drink was offered. Very little history etc. The vehicle was nice and clean but limited space for 4 adults. I think the cheaper tour would have been just as good. Our guide did not speak very loudly so for those of us in the back seat, we heard very little.

Hallo Lorrain, Thanks for your review. My sincere apology to hear what you have experience. What you said in your review does not really sound like our company. You paid an expensive tour and that is why you get more time to see and spend time with your Local Guide to get as much as you can get out of your guide and our guide are trained and speak English good. Concerning the distillery, there is no reservation needed to go there because its open to whole Bonaire and for visitors and its a tourist attraction with no reservation needed. We do talk about the donkey sanctuary but in the Itinerary we do not have the donkey sanctuary as a stop location but you do drive past it on your way back to Kralendijk. Again, sorry to hear that your experience was not as what you though it would be. Can you please make sure if you have write a review for the right company? The reason why I am asking this is because what you said does not sound like us and 100% of our guests are happy with us because we spend time with them and we make sure our guests get what they paid for.
Great tour of the island!
, Feb 2020
This tour was great, as was my guide, EJ. He was very personable and informative, pointing sites out as we went along. We saw the salt flats, slave huts, Rincon, sea turtles (at 1,000 steps, which I didn't find strenuous at all), flamingos, wild donkeys, goats, and more! I was grateful to be able to see parts of the island I otherwise would not have seen had it not been for this tour. I also appreciated having wifi, as did everyone in the vehicle! I would recommend this tour!
Amazing Bonaire
, Jan 2020
Efrem and Mandy gave our family of 10 an awesome tour of Bonaire. After you will want to move to Bonaire The stories Efram shared were full of history and love of his home. Mandy is an amazing host who cares deeply for her new home. Thank you for a fantastic day.
Native guided tour
, Jan 2020
I had a lovely guided tour of north and south Bonaire. My guides were very knowledgeable and experienced. It was also nice as there was a photographer along from Curacao. The salt mines was very interesting and a great photo. I was glad to hear the information on the history of slavery. The south region was so picturesque. It is a beautiful island. We stopped for a snack in a really cute cafe and I tried some Dutch treats. I felt privileged to have this solo tour. Much nicer than being with a large tour group Thank
A little more commentary
, Dec 2019
It would have been nice if the guide would have provided a little more island history and commentary with the tour
Fantastic tour of Bonaire
, Dec 2019
Ephraim was a terrific tour guide! He was most informative and personable in showing us the major sights, including 1,000 Steps Beach, the cactus liqueur distillery, historic slave huts & salt flats. Then he took us to the beautiful, private Spice Beach at Eden Beach Resort where we had a great time snorkeling. I would highly recommend booking a tour with him as he enjoyed showing us his island home and made it such a fun day!
Awesome Tour, Highly Recommend

I loved the tour we had with this family owned and operated business. Our tour guide was a Bonaire native so he was extremely knowledgeable. he took us around the entire island, stopping at awesome sites (No spoiler alerts here) This tour was very comfortable, loved the small group of 6 plus our guide. Definitely worth the price paid. Great pictures of the sites especially the one taken of us by our guide. I highly recommend this tour to all who want a very scenic, informational, enjoyable view of Bonaire!
Excellent Tour
, Dec 2019
Ephraim met us at the cruise ship port, with our name on a sign, so that was super easy! We decided on this tour because it hit all the stops we were wanting. It was great because we could stop, get out and walk around, time to take all the pictures we wanted, Ephraim took pictures of our group for us. Highlights were walking the 1000 steps and seeing lots of flamingos by Goto Lake. We liked getting the history of the island too. We would definitely use this tour company again for other tours when we go back.
Bonaire north and south

Bonaire north and south with Ephriam was a great way to see and get a feel for the island. He was easy to understand and gave us a lot of island history, answered all our questions and also asked what we expected to see. He was on time and the van was comfortable. We were with jut two other people so small group very manageable.
