Island tour for visitors

The sights were beautiful. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. This tour was great. We saw many of the sights we would not have done in our own. The light house, aloe plant, gold mine, ostrich farm, natural Bridge and the church.

Our driver was so personable and friendly that we felt grateful to have her as our guide. She kept the vehicle and air conditioning running for our comfort and took photos of us with our camera along the tour. We learned so much and truly enjoyed ourselves.

We had a fantastic tour guide, Alex. He was friendly, informative, and very accommodating. He knew everything about the island and I think he knew almost everybody on the island. There were lots of interesting stops and sights to see. We were touring for 4 hours. It was a great deal.

Pancho was an incredible tour guide. Friendly, informative, and active in making sure we were enjoying the entire experience. Times are tough during Covid but he absolutely made the best of it with his personality, local knowledge, and personal recommendations. The highlight was easily the fun ostrich farm tour and meal (additional), but the aloe factory was informative, the land bridge beautiful, lighthouse + coconut bus delicious (additional), gold mines great to explore, and everything else amazing. The island is small and we’d 100% recommend this if not renting a car. The other things we would complement this with is the UTV tour thru Arikok and to the natural pool and maybe a sunset catamaran dinner. Totally worth it!

Enjoyed the overview tour of Aruba. I would have liked more of an explanation of some of the sites; e.g. some history of the Gold Mill and the era.
