This tour was conducted by De Palm tours in Aruba. Johan was our guide. Spent the day on the island having flown in from Curacao. We covered the island. Saw the oldest church. Climbed a rock formation. Were enlightened by our exceptionally well-versed guide, Johan. Highly recommended.
This tour was amazing. Long enough to enjoy but not too long to get bored. Did a variety of things along the way. Great lunch. Tour guide was Johan and he was terrific.
We had a wonderful day trip . Our driver Rocky was very knoledgeble about the island and its people and
culture. He was polite and funny a "jack of all trades".. We would refer him and your services to all our friends.
Ray was our driver and tour guide for the day. The sights of Aruba were fantastic. With each stop on the tour we were able to see many great views of the island and the history of each stop was very interesting. Ray did a great job of explaining everything in 2 languages. Our stop for lunch was very filling. Baby beach was great. The water was perfect and we were able to swim and get some snacks at the local restaurant on the beach. Thanks so much to Ray. It didn't seem like it was a job to him and that he thoroughly enjoyed what he was doing.
We had a wonderful tour. Our guide Bert was very friendly, informed and entertaining.
Excellent day exploring Aruba. Our guide Bert was wonderful. We spent a good amount of time at each stop. Lunch was good as well. They do provide water and soft drinks to cool off, and the bus is well air-conditioned.
Our "Discover Aruba..." tour was fantastic and so worthwhile. Our trip leader Ray, was one of the most versitile tour leaders we encountered. He had a great personality, spoke four languages, was an excellent driver, made everything fascinating...well, we just can't say enough good things about him and our tour. I would do it over in a heart beat and pay twice as much....it was by far, one of the best value tours we have taken.
This was great. The island is small so this tour was must long enough. They picked me up from the Hotel on time. I would recommend this tour.
Great tour showing the most you can expect from an Island in the limited amount of hours on shore. Stops were interesting, lunch was superb and the beach is suitable for all ages. Our guide, Johan - Johan bedankt !! - was really great and very informative !
There was a little mix up about our pick up time and location, but this was solved easily and we were greated with a huge grin ! Great day !!
This was far the best tour I took on the Island. We had Rocky has our guide...knows his stuff and adds a little humour. Lunch was great. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to see the island in under 6 hours.
The tour was great. Johan, our driver knew everything and was able to answer questions not related to the tour. He took us to an out of the way place to eat that had better food than our resort. The snorkeling area was crowded but OK.
The driver was great. It was nice to snorkel at Baby Beach since it is so far from all the other ones.
We had a great time on this tour, well worth it. you get to learn all about the island, a great lunch and great snorkeling. And the tour director was great. Dixie Meadows--Casper, Wyoming
A great way to get an overview of this beautiful place. Good value with no rushing and a great meal . Our driver, Ronnie Jensen, was great (although very repetitive) displayed great humour at times. I feel I now know Aruba!!!
Definately worth the trip. The tour lasted 5 hours and we covered all ends of the island. The guide was informative and the lunch included was at a local restaurant you would never find. The food was very good.
Great tour to do. The air conditioned bus was nice yet a bit more action would have been more entertaining for my husband and I. If we had to do it again, we would choose the jeep safari over the coach bus tour. Most of the tours see the same attractions but it was definately a great way to see the island and all it has to offer.
The tour is a bit too long and not enough time at Baby Beach. You only get started and they call to back to the bus. The tour guide knew his stuff!
This was a lovely and informative tour. It was worthwhile to get a nice flavor of the island and the citizens of Aruba. The places we visited were just beautiful.
great driver "Gio" and just long enough to see most of the sights.
Our tour guide was Rocky. He was very imformative and entertaining. I'm not fond of bus tours, but this one was one of the best that I have been on to date.
Tour guide was helpful and knowledgable and informative.The coach was comfortable but old and dirty. Sights taken to were fairly average, we couldnt go in the lighthouse, the Chapel was nice, the restaurent on the tour was ok but open to the elements with no air conditioning, the food was better than average but only one course, it was rushed and the restrooms were not attended to and were broken and the doors didnt close or lock properly. The beach we were taken to to swim and snorkel was beautiful, however, there was nowhere to change and the restrooms were locked. The island itself is quite average with not a lot to see, mainly cactus, although the weather was lovely.
The tour was good, but we could not hear a word the driver was saying over the air conditioning in the bus, about the history and about the attractions we visited. We may have also missed one of the major attractions because we took a lot of time at one of the locations. The meal included in the price was amazing.
very informative just too long of a tour. definitely takes all day not " half" as advertised. our guide, Rey, was awesome! :)
Our tour guide forgot to pick us up so they sent another bus to get us. When we got to the tour bus it was packed. The bus was big and didn't have great windows for sight seeing, so I feel like I missed half of the sights being talked about. We took a ferry to an island to have lunch. The lunch was buffet style, it was okay. Aruba doesn't have much to look at so the tour was only okay, nothing great.
