Enjoyed our jeep tour...our guide, Rocky, was great...he took time to explain all the sights and history behind them, as well as all of our questions. He kept the trip fun and safe. We are so glad we took this trip!
This is the best excursion, worth every single penny. It's a full day activity. You will be picked up at approximately 7:30-8:00am at your hotel so if you can, don't drink too much the night before like I did then taken to ABC tour headquarters. There you will sign some waivers and pick up your 4x4 vehicle w/ other people that's going on the tour. Don't forget to bring your license if you want to drive FYI: is manual transmission and the roads can get very rocky and bumpy, bring water shoes/bathing suit, lots of sunblock and sun glasses so you won't get dust in your eyes for the rough area.
Now why this activity is so awesome and wonderful? Well first it starts with our tour guide Ralphy. I repeat make sure you ask for Ralphy he is the BEST, very knowledgeable, funny, and down to earth. He's extraordinary.
You get to visit historic areas of Aruba, as well as fun water activities with stops at couple of beaches/natural pools including the famous one. Here's a list of each spot respectively:
1. California Lighthouse
2. Alto Vista Chapel
3. Rock formation and Wish Garden
4. Natural bridge
5. Small natural pool not too far from the natural bridge I don't know the name but we went for a swim.
6. Gold Mine
7. Arikok national park
8. QUADRIKIRI CAVE: A little overwhelming because it was my first time seeing bats but such a fun experience
9. Beach called DOS PLAYA
10.The famous Natural Pool: snorkeling equipment is provided
11. Baby beach: more snorkeling is included also
Nonetheless overall the tour gets a 5 out of 5
Again, Ralphy provided an amazing experience keeping us energetic and poised.
Lunch is provided, but some of the sight areas have food vendors selling at a very reasonable price.
P.S. Keep in mind that ABC tours is a family owned business so they emphasis on customer satisfaction. You wont do half of these activities for this price at any other company. It really is a value deal.
Thanks again to the local tour company and Ralphy
The Discover Aruba Tour was a very good introduction to the island, and a great activity for the first day there. The trip included a nice lunch and easy snorkeling beach. Our driver, Johan, was very informative and entertaining. I would recommend this overview tour to anyone coming to Aruba for the first time.

This tour was AMAZING! We had so much fun with our tour guide, Captain Joel. It was great to see the entire island! Wish we had more time to see more of the island. Will definitely come back to do this again!
We had a great time on this tour. Our guides Jelle and Hugo were awesome. Due to high winds causing the water in the Natural Pond to be too rough we were unable to go in which was disappointing but our guides added an extra stop at a different beach for us which was nice. Our guides knowledge of the area and their friendliness was wonderful. The lunch back at Waka Maka was really good too. I would highly recommend this tour for pre-teens to adult as the the ride is way to bumpy for young children.
The 4x4 tour we took was great! Our guide, Joelle, seemed to know the island inside and out, and made it a fun trip for everyone. You really get bumped around in the back of the vehicles, but the natural pool is worth every bump. Although it was a little to rough to stay in the water the day we went, it was absolutely beautiful.
Fabulous and informative tour! Loved our guide Raul. We highly recommend investing in this tour of the island!

The tour was great. We loved the natural pool and the jeep ride. The lunch was also good.
We went on our honeymoon and this tour was purchased for us as a gift. It was one of the best gifts we were given. The day was great, the tour guide was excellent, Jelle. He made everyone feel included and had a great personality. We definately recommend this trip to see the entire island and find great swimming spots. I can tell you that my husband still talks about driving up from the Natural Pool and it's hilarious. Thanks for the great memories.
The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour.
Loved this tour. Saw almost the whole island. It was a lot of fun and our tour guide LaNu was fabulous.
It was the highlight of our trip to Aruba and worth every penny we spent.
Seriously the highlight of our trip!!!! Would LOVE to give it 10 stars if I could! The guides Ivo and Rocky were knowledgeable and super nice guys. We did the full day excursion so lunch came with it and that was good as well. My only wish is that we would have done it earlier in our trip!
excellent tour of the Island, Victor was very knowledgeable and jolly, his rum punch was lethal, a very enjoyable day.
So awesome! Was not what we expected, but turned out to be a very exciting excursion! Our tour guides were upbeat and personable. They made the excursion even better!!!
Awesome way to see the rest of the island, we highly recommend this tour as the east coast is so beautiful and the offroading is a blast. Make sure you bring sunblock and drink plenty of water while blasting around the island. The tour guides kept it fun and entertaining while sharing the history of the various stopping points. I would bring water shoes if you want to swim in the natural pool, the rocks are slick getting in. Definitely choose ABC over the other corporate tours, you won't regret it. Oh, and if you can handle a manual volunteer to drive.
Ivo Rocky and other guide awesome. Would have done this again if we found out sooner
We got to see so much of the island that we would otherwise not be able to see on our own! Lunch is included at the Waka Waka restaurant--this was so-so. BBQ chicken legs, rice, beans or an option for veggie pasta.
The off road experience in the afternoon to the natural pool was a bit more than I thought it would be. Off road means going downhill over boulders. Hold on!
Our driver was Luis and he was fantastic. I would recommend anyone to take this tour. We had a blast. Luis had 7 woman in his jeep and he showed us a fantastic time. All the jeep guides that went with us where all awesome. But Luis was special. He needs commended for a job well done..
