Curacao Distillery Tour Excursion Reviews
We took a tour of the Curacao liquor factory, but they really push you through these places. There was no walking around the liquor factory. We were escorted through the museum so fast you couldn't take anything in. Hardly any time for pictures. Hurry up and get your samples so we can get back on the bus. we wanted to buy gifts for our friends in the shop and our guide was rushing us to get out.
Curacao - Weird timing in port, with boat docking at 1:00 PM and leaving at 11:00 PM. Lots of shopping, and sight seeing within walking distance of ship. The name brand stores are all right by the pier, while just over the moving pontoon bridge (I know, it sounds strange - you have to see it to fully comprehend it) are all the local shops, 10-15 minutes walking from the boat, (don't need a cab). to your right, just over this bridge is a little public square, which is a great place to negotiate excursions with local vendors, at far better prices than offered by the cruise lines. We got a two hour tour in an open-air bus, driving all over the island, including stops at a beach, the Curacao liquor factory (free samples !) , and a beautiful scenic over look probably 200 feet above the ocean, all for $15 p/p ! Great deal, and if you can't tell by now, my wife is a very shrewd negotiator !
We took an island tour which took us by the Curacao Distillery. The tour was very nice. We got to see different parts of the island; while also having an opportunity to see where the Curacao Liqueur was made. There we had the opportunity to taste the different colors of Curacao and buy some to take home. This was a fun tour.
We booked the irie bus tour prior to the cruise online independently and it was great. Bus toured us around the city, with a stop at the rum factory for free samples. We stopped a couple of stops for pictures before heading to seaquarim beach. The beach was a little crowed but it was great for snorkeling. There were tons of fish and with the awesome rock formation swim able from shore it was surreal. Wish we had more time here. The bus driver was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour.
Not bad, free samples. Did buy a bottle of rum.
fun and tasty!
