During a family cruise we booked a tour with Elton for the port of Curacao. We were looking for an appealing tour that could accommodate my elderly mother - and (oddly) his walking tour was perfect as it allowed my mom to use her scooter :) We met Elton a few minutes from the pier and he took us around Willemstad - describing the history of the island and showing us interesting features as we strolled through town. Elton's wonderful personality and extensive knowledge of Curacao made the tour enjoyable!
We all really enjoyed our countryside tour with Elton. He brought a lot of knowledge about Curacao to our discussions about places and history and events on the island. His friendly demeanor got us all involved in conversation about traveling the world and getting to know about different cultures and destinations. If I had anything negative to say it was the car was a bit tight for the tall people in our group but we still had a lot of fun!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the review and the feedback Betty, it's appreciated. Happy to hear that all four of you had fun today, which is the most important thing! Enjoy the rest of your cruise. :-)
We enjoyed our time with our tour guide Elton, a very pleasant man. Because he is a "local" he took us places we would not ordinarily have seen in Otrobanda.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure having you Dan, and glad that all of you enjoyed the walking tour. Thank you for the review! :-)

Elton was a fabulous representative of Curacao! He knows half of the island (possibly more) and gave us a wonderful tour. He was generous with his time. Swimming with the sea turtles was fantastic! It was such a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the review Lynn. Happy to read that you had a great day! :-)

Elton picked us up at our cruise ship, and took us on a driving/walking tour around the island: Fort, Flamingos, Caves, Beach, ... etc. He is intelligent and remarkably well-traveled (77 countries!) and is a great/fun conversationalist. Not-to-Miss if you only have a day or so in Curacao!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review Stephen!! Glad to hear that you had a great time in Curacao and it was definitely great to talk to you and your wife, especially about travelling since you're well-traveled too (93 countries if I'm not wrong). Enjoy the rest of your cruise and take care!

Great personality; informative on Jewish history with support from Rabbi. Tour takes in all relevant stops plus a couple of extras.

Elton was fantastic. We wanted to see different things on Curacao besides the tourist traps. He showed us the West side of the island, and some great beaches. We asked for some local food and he brought us to a great place with great food.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the review Steve. It was my pleasure to make sure you had a good time here on the island! :)

Elton was just wonderful! He was flexible and able to deal with our ship's late arrival, which meant that we had a very good Historical Walking tour in Willemstad. We saw many different parts of the city and learned quite a bit about the history of it and the island. After speaking to others on our ship, we feel that we had the best guide and tour in Curacao that day. Thank you Elton!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dianne, Thank you for the review and happy that you,'ve enjoyed it, despite the very late arrival. Appreciate it.

Elton was a superb guide. I've traveled over the world. His tour was as good as it gets. He was well informed, understood what we were looking for in a tour and gave us a memorable day. You simply must do lovely Curaçao with Elton!!) was
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Connie, Thank you for taking your time and write the review! Truly appreciate it and very happy that you had a great day in Curacao with me. :-)
We had an absolutely marvellous tour with Elton on February 8. He appeared punctually and his relaxed easy manner and style made the 7 hours informative and insightful. Elton has a wealth of knowledge about Curacao and the island's history; he has also travelled the world and brought abudant insight to our discussions. We had certain sights we wanted to see and Elton designed a full-island tour that was informed by our preferences. A ToursByLocals gem!! Stephen and Leslie
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: First of all, thank you very much for your review. I truly appreciate it. It was a pleasure having you and to be able to show you around while having very interesting conversations! :-)

Elton was a wonderful tour guide and was very knowledegeable. We had a mixup at the beginning regardin the size of the vehicle, but he was quick to remedy this and then the tour continued wonderfully. I would just suggest to be very specific about the needs of the group traveling (e.g. age, ability to walk stairs, long distances, etc,) This makes it a very wonderful tour and one which we certainly would recommend to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much; I am very happy everything turned out well and that you all thoroughly enjoyed the tour during your stop in Curacao! :-)

Our group of 4 had an amazing time with Elton! He adapted our itinerary to fit our specific requests and managed to fit in everything we had hoped to do for the day and then some. Our ship docked late in the afternoon (2:30 island time) and Shete Boka normally closes at 3 but Elton was able to talk them into letting us in anyway. He knows the island extremely well and made sure we saw all of the best spots for pictures. He made us laugh, and we always felt safe and welcome. We would definitely book again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very glad you enjoyed it and you were satisfied, that is exactly what I wanted. Let me know anytime when you visit the island again. Regards! :-)
