Excellent tour covering many highlights around the island. Brenda shares a wealth of information in an engaging way. Brenda can adjust the tour to cover what is important to you. When we expressed an interest in snorkeling Brenda had great tips about sites and logistics. Also helpful restaurant recommendations. Getting a private customized tour was great. We covered a lot of ground but at our own pace. Really appreciated the insights into island history, culture and economy. Highly recommend!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Harvey, Early tours are a great way for location orientation, I happy that you both enjoyed your visit to Bonaire.

We loved our tour with Brenda! She is extremely friendly, very accommodating, and very pleasant. She tailored our tour exactly as we wanted it and did it within our time frame! Brenda is very knowledgeable about all phases of Bonaire's history and its present state. She dropped us off at a great beach bar/restaurant that we would have never found in our own. We're anxious to go back and snorkel with her! We highly recommend Brenda! Bill & Linda Houston, Texas

Brenda was a fantastic guide who knew her Island like the back of her hand. She interacted with my group beautifully and had a game plan of where she wanted to go and what she wanted to show us, but was still sensitive to our requests and willing to show us anything we wanted to see, as long as it was within her power to do so. I highly recommend her as a guide! Toursbylocals was again a fantastic company to work with; no problems and lots of great memories!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure having you all along for a great tour of South Bonaire. The Flamingo's miss you all !!! Until next time - keep on Dancing !!

Brenda is a delightful guide, very knowledgeable and entertaining. Bonaire is not a very big island, so the time we had with her was sufficient to get a good overview of the island. We only wish we could have spent more time with her. I would recommend Brenda to anyone visiting Bonaire.

Meeting Brenda was easy with the map she provided. The trip went to the north first and we were able to stay ahead of the tour buses. We saw many flamingos, flora and fauna. She was very informative about the island operation in addition to seeing the the sights. After going to the north we went south to the salt flats. Very interesting seeing how salt is produced. There is a lot to see in addition to diving. We understand Brenda leads diving and snorkeling tours. I highly recommend this guide.

Wonderful tour with Brenda on Bonaire! All my touring interests were thoroughly addressed, and we saw everything on the wish list. Lots of chances to see the fascinating animal and plant life close-up and hands-on many times, too. Brenda is very pleasant to spend time with, and I felt like I was visiting a friend or family member, rather than just being a number on a bus tour somewhere. I had a wonderful tour, and enjoyed every minute of my time with Brenda. She knows SCUBA diving, just ask her.

Brenda is a priceless treasure of knowledge of all things about Bonaire. She was extremely sensitive to our interests and our limitations and we certainly feel that she represents the best Tours by Locals experience. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and a more knowledgeable guide. Our day with Brenda was the highlight of our 10 day Caribbean cruise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Werner and friends. It was my pleasure to spend a few hours with you as we traveled Bonaire.

Brenda was fantastic and made our day in Bonaire very informative and enjoyable. Brenda was at the dock and made sure that we saw everything possible.

Brenda was very knowledgeable, articulate and well organized. She accommodated our needs readily, particularly my mother who was in a wheelchair but needed to get up and stretch periodically.
A very informative and interesting tour of Bonaire. Brenda met us at the port and took us on a four hour tour of Bonaire. She is very knowledgeable of the area and was always ahead of all the tour buses when we arrived at an area that all the tour operators went to. Her enthusiasm and friendliness made the trip very enjoyable. She provided water and snacks during the tour which was a welcome treat. Going to visit Bonaire...sign up with Brenda, you'll be happy you did.

Brenda was very friendly and accommodating. I had my elderly father with me - and she was very conscientious of making enough stops for him and paced the tour well. We saw a lot of what the island has to offer and was very impressed with Brenda's hospitality.
Brenda you are amazing. Our tour of Bonaire was fantastic all due to your efforts which were very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble. We learnt so much about life on the island. The history, culture, fauna and flora. The flamingos are a highlight. Brenda made sure we enjoyed the spectacle in relative peace. (Before the main tourist buses arrived). Although diving or snorkelling was not on our agenda Brenda is an expert and we would thoroughly recommend her on all counts. Freda and Garnet
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is always a pleasure to 'show off' the best features of Bonaire. Thank you for spending part of your day with me.
We had a wonderful four hour tour with Brenda, stopping at many places of historical interest. She is very knowledgable, interesting & fun to be with. She is also a professional diver & we were fortunate to enjoy an amazing snorkel with her in the afternoon. A very memorable day. Now, Bonaire is our favourite Caribbean Island.
