Very interesting.
Very interesting. Very good narration with history and lots of facts about ostriches. Got to feed the ostriches and even got nipped on the hand by one of them.

Although very nice this was the tour that a truck crashed into a tree and passengers almost got seriously hurt. No one cared except for one tour operator but it seemed like nothing was done.

It was neat to learn about the ostriches, however saddening to know they are raised to be eaten.

what a pleasant surprise. Very well organized, animals are well cared for and staff/guide were very informative. You get to feed these animals and you get to stand on an ostrich egg! Great family fun.

The tour ended at an ostrich farm that was pretty much a let-down. They had a handful of rough-looking ostriches, a tapir-looking animal, and some really mean geese. One bit me, but I’ve fought with geese before, so I won that round.

However, the highlight of Curacao was the Ostrich Farm excursion we booked through Princess. It was $50 per person for a 3-hour tour of the Ostrich Farm and some "art gallery" that makes cast statues of a "chichi" woman (total waste of time, IMO). BUT - the Ostrich Farm, oh it was glorious! They took us on a guided truck tour of the grounds and we learned a lot about ostriches, then got to feed some (photo op!) and stand on an ostrich egg. The baby ostriches were amazingly cute and they had some other animals on the land as well. They have a restaurant on the grounds, but we didn't have time to eat there, plus would feel bad about eating an ostrich after having fed them and seen their babies. The ride to the art gallery took maybe 25 minutes, during which the guide narrated the history of Curacao and some of the buildings, and we spent about 20 minutes at the art gallery and then drove to the Ostrich Farm, where we spent about an hour. The drive back took at least 45 minutes as we hit heavy traffic, but the guide gave us more interesting info on the island. Read Less
