"Kevin was very helpful and knowledgeable. He shared lots of interesting stories about places and people. One of our best days in Curacao. Highly recommended. "

"We came across this tour by chance while walking in Punda and decided that it was time to learn a bit more about Curacao. Kevin (the guide) was very friendly and the insights he provided were very cool. The pace of the tour is nice, not too fast, not too slow. And of course, it's free! But we did give the guide a good tip. :-) "

"Kevin (the guide) was born and raised in Curacao, which means he knows every corner and deals first hand. Great recommendations for lunch and nightlife too."
