Aruba Shore Excursion: Island Tour of Aruba

Oranjestad, Aruba

While you’re in port in Aruba, take this shore excursion to see the best of the Caribbean island with a knowledgeable guide.

Stops include:
  • Ruins of Bushiribana – drive past the remains of a gold smelter built of natural stone in 1825 that functioned for most of the 19th century.
  • Natural Bridge – one of Aruba's most popular attractions, formed of coral limestone cut out by years of pounding surf. It’s one of the largest rock spans of this type in the world.
  • Ayo Rock formation and Cave (Arawak Indian Drawings) – a natural preserve that features some of the oldest Arawak drawings, as well as trails showcasing Aruba's variety of flora and fauna.
  • Frenchman's Pass Historical Site – luscious stretch of road bordered by overhanging trees and towering cacti almost midway between Oranjestad and San Nicolas.
  • Old City of Savaneta – Aruba's former first capital, now a bustling fishing village with a 150-year-old mud hut. It’s the oldest dwelling still standing on the island.
  • San Nicolas – Aruba's second capital and oldest village. It was once a bustling port and is now home to Aruba's main red-light district, offering plenty of street color.
  • Alto Vista Chapel and California Lighthouse
On the return journey, you’ll drive through downtown Oranjestad. You can choose to be dropped off downtown to wander the shops and marvel at the Dutch architecture, or be dropped off at the cruise ship port.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to Oranjestad for your ship’s departure. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Excellent tour...relaxing, informative, comprehensive, and a great view of the island from a native of the island. We would highly recommend this tour to others and determined it was better than the excursions offered by the cruise line as we went more places, learned more, and paid less for a better tour.
