Departure Time

9:30 AM
Visit Aruba’s most popular landmarks aboard a brightly colored converted school bus and enjoy the tropical island breeze through large open windows. Meet your guide at hotel pickup and listen to fascinating facts about the Caribbean island as you sip unlimited beverages (soda, rum punch, fruit punch and water) on board.

Your tour provides a closer look at attractions like Arashi Beach, the California Lighthouse and Tierra del Sol Country Club and Resort, located at Aruba’s northwest coast. Snap photos from your perch or disembark to stretch your legs. 

Driving south along the island’s eastern coastline, you’ll visit Alto Vista Chapel, the ruins of the 19th-century Bushiribana gold mine and the remains of the Natural Bridge — a limestone formation that collapsed in 2005. 

Around midday, enjoy a barbecue lunch served at La Granja restaurant. 

Get a glimpse of the mysterious Ayo rock formations before heading to Arikok National Park to see the Amerindian petroglyphs at Guadirikiri Caves. Take a 15-minute guided tour inside one of the caves, whose two chambers are illuminated by sunlight streaming down through holes in the ceiling. 

Arriving at Aruba’s southern end, finish with 45 minutes of free time at Baby Beach. Swim in the shallow waters of the tranquil lagoon; if you wish to further explore the marine life, snorkel gear is available to rent (own expense).

 Your 6.5-hour tour ends with hotel drop-off in the late afternoon.

I'd highly recommend this tour. Once we had everyone picked up we went from one attraction to the next as Victor gave us all the history, facts and information. We had a really fun group of people in the bus so that added to the fun too. The caves were fascinating with some bats flying around... Was great to see so much in a short day! We enjoyed this tour and Victor was the best!

Busy, Bumpy but Fun

Ride was an old school bus with windows removed.Island is always windy, but it helps keep the heat down. Terrain in area is very bumpy, so be prepared. Guide/Driver James was very nice and supplied lots of info about the area as we drove. Stops at various attractions were brief, but long enough to see everything. Driver supplied soft drinks and rum punch at several stops. First stop, Lighthouse was interesting but we did not climb to top. Scenery is incredible. Stop at Chapel was brief but short walk through the bike trails reveals many types of cactus Visit to North Shore of island was like visiting the moon. Tour through cave was interesting. Stop at Natural bridge allowed restroom break and scenic photos. Trip to AYO rock formations- saw 1000 year old cave drawings. Lunch stop at restaurant. Food was mediocre chicken, ribs, rice, etc. Opportunity to change into swimsuit given during lunch break. National park road was very bumpy, but again lots of great scenery. Saw windmills, wild goats and donkeys in national park. Final stop at Baby beach included about 1 hour to swim. (got sunburned from that) All in all a busy, but enjoyable trip. James was a great guide/driver.
