“A+ for Joden Savanne with Marina da Costa Tours with a Flair”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We were a diverse group of adults and young kids and Marina made the trip to Joden Savanne enjoyable for everyone. She was a walking encyclopedia of historical information about the old jewish settlement and took us to a black "cola" creek on the way back that was refreshing and fun for the kids. Thanks, Marina, for a great day!!

“a trip to the Jodensavanne”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We went to Overbridge and with a guide we went in a boat to The Jodensavanne. A beautiful place with a lot of history. A must to see when you visit Surinam. Take a rest after the trip in the restaurant or take a swim in the river.

If you find yourself in Paramaribo, be sure and check out Tours with a Flair and Marina Da Costa's trip to Jodensavanne. You will have a wonderful day on the river as well as tour the Jewish settlement. She is a wealth of historical information about the Jewish settlers as well as Suriname. It is her personal touch that makes this day special. Whether you are a Jew or a Gentile, this trip will be a true blessing to you.

Interesting to see all the graves and ruins, but I liked it the most because it was so calm and peaceful there.

A full day with a boat trip, many delicious snacks, lunch, and Marina is so wellinfomred adn also enthusiastic abou the history of the Jodenne Savanne and the old Jewish cemeteries
She is from one of the oldest Jewish families in Suriname so the trip is a very personal experience. It is highly enjoyable, relaxing, and well organized. I highly recommend this day trip.
