Great day in Curacao
Dec 2019
I visited Curacao for a day as part of my Southern Caribbean Cruise with Norwegian Epic in December 2019. I had originally planned to rent a car and explore independently but eventually decided on a private tour instead. And I am very happy to have done so!

Nicole was our guide and she was just great! I exchanged a number of emails with her before the trip and she carefully listened to our preferences and put together a perfect itinerary for the day.

We had two great snorkelling stops, chances to spot wildlife from flamingos to pigs to iguanas, delicious (vegetarian) lunch with a view and opportunities to experience some of the more remote corners of the island. As requested, Nicole took us back to Willemstad for some exploration by foot in good time before it was time to return to the ship.

Nicole even added a shopping centre to the itinerary for some emergency shopping after I managed to break my flip-flops during the trip. All through the day, Nicole was very friendly and knowledgeable about the island and it was a great pleasure to talk to her. I would highly recommend Samurai Curacao for day trips in Curacao.

Read more about the excursion (and the cruise!) on my blog Hopping Around the Globe in Style.

Best way to see the island.
Feb 2020
We had a fantastic full day with private taxi and guide. The best part is that together with the guide / driver you can set up your sights. Our guide Nicole was very good at telling us about the island's history and culture. And even during the trip we could add some stops that we wanted to see. I can really recommend a full day with them.

Private tour was the way to go!
Mar 2020
We have taken private tours at several of our travel destinations, and have found that they are the best way to get to know the area. I found Samurai after searching for several days, and decided to book the tour with them as they offered a custom itinerary. Nicole was extremely responsive and helpful - I told her what we were looking for (beaches, snorkeling for the kids - quiet and not crowded for the adults)...she came up with a list, and also gave me feedback on places I had researched. We planned for a pickup of 9am at our resort...unfrotunatly, the morning of the tour, I fell ill and had to visit the hospital. I reached out to Nicole and she was totally understanding - she even offered to take our kids on a tour if I could not go! Thankfully, I was feeling ok enough to join them. Our guide (whose name I cannot spell!) was so nice, and understanding that we were running a little late. We had 2 cars and followed our guide to the destinations we had chosen - Hato Caves, Playa Piskado, Playa Lagun, and Porto Mari. Everything was exactly as we had hoped - and we loved to be able to see more of the island. Our guide was knowledgeable, and kept us on track - and just nice all around. It was a long, but fun day - and I am so happy that I was able to go! Thank you!!!

This was a great tour (4 hour). I was surprised to find the island was so arid. Had a great lunch! Tammy and Nicole took us everywhere, and supplied some history and anecdotes along the way!

Samurai Private tour of Curacao
Mar 2020
We booked a 9-person tour of Curacao with Samurai Tours and were fortunate to have Nicole as our guide and Tammy as our driver. We left the itinerary up to Nicole and she did an excellent job of showing us the island and explaining its history and culture. We stopped at Senior Blue Curacao distillery and left the island pleased and informed.

Great way to see the island.
Jan 2020
I booked the private custom tour because my wife and I want to be able to choose what we see and where we go and did not want to be in a large group. I had good communication from Nicole prior to arriving where we told her our interests and what we were looking for. I even asked if they know of any Celiac friend lunch spots that can assist with a Gluten Free Menu. We were to meet our guide near Starbucks about 1 block from our cruise ship. Right on time we met Oshell our guide. He was a super nice, interactive, and knowledgeable young man who we loved spending the day with.
We had a short day because out cruise changed out schedule at the last minute so instead of 12 hours on the island we had 6 hours. This really changed our plans but Oshell was great about adjusting on the fly. He had a pre-planned itinerary based on our emails to Nicole but we changed that real fast once we lost 6 hours.
Our little Suzuki SUV was cool. A little red 4 door that was just what you needed to cruise around. It was not luxury, it was an island car and we enjoyed that. We visited Shete National Park as the first stop. That's the far side of the island and Oshell thought that would be a good start and then work out way back to the ship. The Nat Park was a great park and having Oshell as a guide was really helpful. If we would have just rented a car, we would have had no idea what's worth seeing here and which dirt roads to take. We were the first ones inside the park, saw what we wanted to see, and headed off to the beach. They had contacted a local restaurant ahead of time to ensure they could get us some Gluten Free food. We went to a beach for a while, had lunch, went to town, and eventually back to the ship,
Having a guide was great just knowing where to go and hiving us tons of information along the way. He walked with us and literally gave us a custom guided tour of everything. He had new Snorkeling gear for us to use, Towels, and cold water. Having Oshell with us was part of the fun. Good young dude who was a wealth of information and just fun to be around . I'm glad he didn't just guide us to a location and then sit in the car waiting for us. He walked with us like a friend and it was great.
We really enjoyed the entire experience and Oshell as out guide. Having him allowed us to see and do what we wanted without wasting time with large groups or fixed activities. Were very glad we did this.
