Booked this online through shoreexcursioneer, as a Land & Sea Tour Combo. Great guide. Cute little open-air bus. Saw flamingos, salt mounds, pink ponds, slave huts, ended up at Lac Bay by Sorobon Beach. Lots of windsurfers there. Very shallow water. That was my least favorite part - seemed a little dirty, and water was too WARM for my liking. Overall great tour though. Read Less

We had an excellent guide on this open air experience of the island. He was quite knowledgeable and we saw the wild flamingos, donkeys and goats. Saw the conca shell "graveyard", downtown Bonaire which is so colorful and clean and a stop at the beach to see the paddle boaters with beautiful sails. I later shopped in the downtown area..what a pleasure that was..safe, clean, colorful near the ship Read Less

Nice comfortable bus, knowledgeable and friendly guide. Saw salt flats and learned about salt production, slave labor, local culture and history. Went to see flamingos, not as many there as I hoped but you can't predict wild birds!

An interesting tour - to the slave huts, salt pans and national park. Nothing spectacular, but worth doing. A walk in town through the market and pretty streets is worth doing.

As much as I hated Aruba, I loved Bonaire. Interesting island - saw salt flats and beached covered with finger coral. Coco Beach has a rocky walk in (bring surf shoes) but once you get in, the colorful fish are everywhere....even in knee deep water. The bartenders at Coco are the WORST, so if you want a drink get it on the way in...you won't be able to order another without wasting an hour. Other than that, the beach stop was great. Read Less

I can’t say I’d recommend this tour. It does deliver what it promises—a comprehensive island tour including a visit to the salt factory and slave huts, flamingo sighting, and a drive through Kralendijk and Rincon. Here’s what you need to know, however. Your tour will consist of riding around in a van for hours with little chance for exploration. We got out of the van only three times and for only a few minutes at a time. While we did see flamingos, we saw them from quite a distance. Our fellow travelers were thankful for the binoculars we had brought. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, but not personable, so some of the content’s delivery felt dry. Bonaire’s best offerings are in the water: If I had it to do over again, I’d skip the tour and hire a taxi to take me to an awesome snorkeling spot. Or if possible, I’d rent a golf cart or Jeep for a self-guided and better-paced tour of the island’s highlights. Read Less

We couldn't understand the tour guide at all. At one point he told us he would speak "simple for the stupid." We all looked at each other amazed he just told us we were stupid. His microphone worked intermittently and it was difficult to hear even if we couldn't understand his English. He did not put on the A/C in spite of us requesting it several times. Passengers were dripping in sweat by the end of the tour. During one of the stops, a guest was not on time. He just sat waiting until finally one passenger said he would go find the guest himself. We got a taste of a liqueur but he told us nothing about it (would have been nice to know it was made from the cactus on the island and it could only be bought there apparently). Read Less
