While the tour was good, there is not much to see on this island. Its claim to fame rests off-shore with over 85 dive sites for scuba afficionatos. Salt industry development was interesting.

great tour

We were very lucky on this tour, we were the only ones that was on the tour, so it was a private tour by the driver I think he name was Wil. He tooked us everywhere on the island. Showed us the salt flats, where the slaves used to live in by the salt flats. We then drove down the coast of the island. But the water is so clear that you can see the turtles swiming in the water. The different colors of the water. While we were there one of the colorful birds from the island just sat on top of the tree to check us out. Also along the shoreline you see the caves made from the volcanos on the side of the road. Then we went to the goto lake where all of the flamingos are at. You can take pictures of the flamingos because thet get real close to you. We then went to a little town in the hills and showed us the house that Indians still live, because they have Indian heads on the front of the house. Then he took us back to the port. It was a very good tour and I would recommeded it anyone.

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.

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!
