It was a very interesting look at Bonaire and it's history. Our tour guide was very informative about the whole process of the salt production. He also shared the history of the slaves and their lives. I would highly recommend this tour.

great tour
March 26, 2020
Took this tour in March 2020 and it was excellent. We were in a small group with about 10 people and the guide was very informative and entertaining. He brought along water, which was appreciated on a hot day. It was nice to be in a small group and be able to ask questions. He told stories of his life on the island. Really enjoyed it!

This was one of the best tours on our trip. I liked being in a small van, the tour guide was easy to understand, and all the points he took us to were very interesting--the salt pile, slave huts, Goto Lake where we saw flamingos. It was a great tour of the island.

I knew nothing about this lovely paradise before taking this tour . Our guide was a great communicator and fun person who truly gave us an excellent idea of the history of the island and about life on the island. He made sure to make lots of stops so we could take photographs to enhance our memories. I recommend this tour very highly!
