James did a wonderful job taking us around Aruba and telling the background of different areas. The BBQ lunch was at a little restaurant and was great. I think we saw all the highlights of the island and we were not rushed. Since we were on the Caribbean Princess, James took us to the port area to drop us off. We did use a cab to go to the Tamjarim Hotel for pickup in the morning. The cab ride was 12 and everything went like clockwork. Highly recommended.
Great tour. The guide was excellent. The open bus was a good way to travel across the Island.
This excursion was definitely worth the time and expense!!!! Our tour guide, James, was informed and on time. My favorite was driving through the island, passing the beaches, seeing the landscape and going through the caves in the National Park the steps into the cave are steep and the walkway is narrow in a few spots. The lunch was OK, but tasted great because I was so hungry. I was disappointed that no rum punch was available, as the excursion indicates, however, there was plenty of complimentary sodas and bottled water. I would suggest you pack a few light snacks particularly if you have kids or young adults, as our trip lasted 7.5 hours.. The bathrooms along the way were very nice and clean but come at a price, 1 per person. We ended our tour at Baby Beach, known for its swallow beaches but there was a good snorkeling spot as well. We learned that Baby Beach is about 20 miles from Venezuela. I can't say enough about this excursion except that I would recommend it to people of all ages and I would do it again! Thank You James and Pelican Adventures
Victor did a great job. Was disappointed that the ad read Unlimited rum punch and other beverages on the bus But you only got beverages at 3 stops. Great tour to to see a lot on one day. Lunch was good! at La Granja restaurant.
Victor did an excellent job showing us the island. Stick with chicken st the BBQ.
We had a good time. The tour was fun and our driver/tour guide was excellent. We got to see Aruba's beautiful landmarks and enjoyed the tour very much. Highly recommended!
Really fun tour, very knowledgeable interactive guide Victor!. The tour visits all the significant landmarks and national parks, and Victor shares his knowledge about Aruba's history and the development of its infrastructure during the short drives along the way. I loved the food at the BBQ cafe we visited for lunch the highlight for me was the bats in the most remote chamber of the Guadirikiri Cave. Final stop was Baby Beach, where we snorkeled and swam in beautiful waters. Our tour had six guests, so there was plenty of room on the open-air bus. Was much more comfortable than being on the other company's tour vehicles, where 16 people were packed onto a modified truck bed. Highly recommend this tour, and leave a big tip for Victor, whose patience knows no bounds.
absolutely loved it . . . especially the cave tour . . . the entire family loved it!
This tour was not only beautiful, but gave you plenty of time at each location. I was worried that it would be too short of a trip, but it lasted the perfect amount of time! The crew was wonderful and I would absolutely book with them again.

This tour was amazing!
One of the best - thank you
Tour was both informative and entertaining. Roscia, our guide, kept us informed and on time. He was extremely patient and nurturing to my daughters who were reluctant to explore the cave in the National Park. They were persuaded to step outside their comfort zone and happy they did. Well done
Victor was very kind and knowledgeable about the island. While we were on a schedule, it didn't feel too rushed and was a great way to see the major highlights without driving yourself. Lunch was decent... nothing fancy, but I walked away feeling nourished.
Note: Aruba is VERY windy, so if that bothers you, an open air bus tour isn't for you. On the plus side, the wind ensured that we were cool the entire ride.
I was extremely pleased that I took this tour, I was able to see most of the island from the comfort of the air conditioned bus. We had enough time at each stop. The driver was extremely informative and had a great sense of humor. It was a great way to see the diversity of the island. The only complaint: The empanada at the Natural Bridge stop was very scarce on cheese! The only suggestion: When I signed up for the Half Day Touron the internet prior to arrival in Aruba I was informed it was 4 hours. When I went to get my confirmation ticket, I was told it was over 6 hours.. I was picked up I appreciated this at 9:30am and did not get back to my hotel till 5pm.. This was actually 6.5 hours. While I appreciated all I got to see and do,, I would have wanted to know this was actually a full day tour. I had dinner plans and was more rushed than I wanted to be.

It was great to see all the sites but it was so quick and I didn't think there was enough time to spend at each spot. 10 minutes was all we had. However, the driver was so funny and very informative. He was super enthusiastic about everything Aruba and it was contagious. Lunch was very good. Definitely enjoyed that.
Victor was nice and knew the history well. Bus was on time and ran good. Kids were free so a plus!! Perfect tour if you want something not to loud or off road. Good for all age groups.
Good fun and a good way to see the island. Victor was great and the rum punch tasty.
The tour was enjoyable. The bus was clean and comfortable. The tour guide was nice and tried to make jokes throughout. The restaurant stop was not good. The food was fair and soft drinks watered down.The restrooms were dirty and in poor working odor.
