The caves were interesting, and the tour guide provided good information. The ostrich farm tour was great. The tour guide provided information in 4 languages to accommodate the group, which was very impressive. The ostriches were so interesting and it was possible to feed them and get pictures. Really a worthwhile tour to take!

The bus driver was quiet and did not talk a lot, but the caves were interesting and the tour guide informative. The tour guide at the ostrich farm did the tour in 3 languages to accommodate the group - impressive! He provided a lot of information. You got to feed the ostriches and take your pictures with them. Both worth seeing!
The excursion itself was great and the best of our cruise. The caves were superb, remember there are lots of stairs to climb up and down. Not an issue for us. The guide extremely knowledgeable and spoke many languages. We were given time after to use the facilities and look around. The ostrich farm was the best and I got to feed the ostrich . All done very safely. The guide there also spoke many languages. We got some great pictures of the ostrich, pigs, crocodiles, iquanas too. Again given time to visit the shop and use the facilities. The only down side to this excursion is that the driver picks up people from all over the island before going to the sights. So people from cruise ships and hotels. In addition there is lots of traffic jams on CuraÁao and the drive ended up being late to pick us up (20 minutes). It delayed everything after that. And we got stuck in traffic getting back to the cruise ship. We still had plenty of time to go shopping in town afterwards.

Had a very enjoyable and enlightening day at both the HATO Caves and the Ostrich Farm. Learned a lot about raising Ostrichs; disappointed that they did not have any Ostrich Jerky that we could purchase to bring home at the time we visited.
