A highlight of our vacation and an overall outstanding experience for our family group of 11, ranging in ages, 6 - 56! We received prompt pickup at our cruise terminal. Great food in a pleasant atmosphere before heading out. A scenic tour with stops and plenty of photo opportunities. An adventurous 4 x 4 cruisin experience-- that had us thrilled and laughing our heads off! And although we had to alter our swim hole due to the rough sea conditions that day, the trip was topped off by a great swim hole adventure at at alternate location before we were returned to our cruise ship. Being the owners of water sport activities ourselves, we were impressed with the ease of checking in bought online, the friendliness of the entire staff--especially our guides Ivo and Big G who were funny, attentive, and focused on safety, while providing an excursion to be remembered by all and talked about for hours, if not days after! Thanks ABC Tours--we will definitely recommend your company and this tour to others and we hope to return to do it all again in the future. Your MD Friends!
One of the best excursions in 35 cruises, you must book this excursion!
This was an incredible excursion! We had Andrew as our guide and a small group of 6. My family of four including 2 teenager and 2 sweet girls from Poland. We started off our afternoon with a great lunch and then got in the off road 4X4 and started to explore the island. Andrew's knowledge of all the sites was wonderful. Because we were a small active group, we made a few extra stops - which were awesome. Ultimately the natural pool was simply paradise. We got there at a perfect time, it was not that crowded. Andrew brought all the equipment for snorkeling and was guiding my kids on where to jump off the rocks - which they loved! All in all, we all enjoyed the afternoon. If we come back to this beautiful island we will for sure do this tour again and only with Andrew!
Georgie and Ralphie were great guides! We saw spectacular views that we never would have seen had we not gone on the tour. The seatbelts were non functioning in our Jeep and that worried me somewhat. Otherwise fun had by all.
Our tour guides were Hugo and Andrew and they were the most entertaining tour guides we have ever had! It's been three months since we went on the tour and our boys 5 and 7 years old continue to pretend to be them while playing with their jeeps and taking people on tour! They enjoyed the honking of horns, blocking of traffic, the off-roading experience, and the general silliness! They definitely left a lasting impression!
Hugo set the tone at the beginning of the tour, he immediately gave us the Aruba vibe. The tour was as described and Hugo provided relevant information at each site. Our driver was Andrew. We had an older lady in our jeep, he was extremely attentive toward her and helped her up and down the rocks. He watched over our kids in the natural pool. It was this individualized attention and their attitude that set it apart from other tours.
The lunch at the end was surprisingly delicious! It was a lovely restaurant and we were thrilled to have picked this tour! Wouldn't change a thing!
Let me start by saying that this is certainly an adventure tour. Those who are afraid of or dislike heights, water, or bumpy rides probably won't enjoy this tour. Now that that's out of the way, I can say that this was an AMAZING experience. My tour was done with Ray and Ralphie, who were both very knowledgeable and lots of fun to be around. I was picked up promptly at my hotel, and taken to the ABC Tours building where they gathered everyone in groups and had us sign waivers before getting started. It was extremely hot during the tour, but they made sure that we stayed hydrated by making us drink water at every stop. There were parts of the tour that were very hair raising and maybe considered dangerous to some people i.e. climbing down steep ladders, climbing over sharp rocks, etc., but they made sure that we stayed relaxed and safe. They were even VERY helpful with a couple who had their two young kids-- I was amazed at how they ensured the kids were able to participate in all of the climbing and swimming activities without one compliant or injury! The best part of the tour was the Natural Pool swimming, but OMG I cannot even explain how bumpy the ride down is. Don't get me wrong, it was fun, but it sure did jerk us around quite a bit. Let's just say that Jeep/Land Rover has officially proven its capabilities to me! The Natural Pool was very refreshing and beautiful however, I don't recommend it for those who can't swim as the rocks are very slippery, waves unpredictable, and the water goes very deep in the middle. At the end, we were taken back to our original meeting place where we enjoyed a delicious lunch. I can't say that this is a tour that you will want to do multiple times, but it is certainly one that you should give a try while on the island. Thanks to Ray and Ralphie for an amazing time!!
Best experience we have had and the best value.
Stay at the Ritz Carlton because the 5 star treatment.
Will recommend your Company because we travel the world and this is by far the most organized!
Best Value in Aruba
Great employees ( JOAL was our guide)
Ralfey was great and the tour didn't disappoint me..this is my second time doing this and will not be my last..great job guys and see y'all next time
If you book this trip ask for Rocky, is he extremely knowledgeable, friendly, funny and outgoing. He made our vacation a lot more fun. Professional, well organized and a MUST DO!
No words to describe this tour. It was absolutely amazing and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone visiting Aruba - it's a MUST DO!!
Tour was great Ivo was our guide new the history of the island and how come to be very knowledgable. He did everything you could ask a guide to do would definitely recommend to anyone visiting aruba to use abc tours through vaitor
if they had option for 6 stars i would give it .. this company knows how to treat you like family .. so awsome .. and the dinner at end was fantastic .. awsome crew top to bottom . loved it ! thanks AB .. your awsome!
A rocky road to get to see Little Aruba, but well worth it! An amazing excursion to see the natural wonders of this amazing island. Not to mention an incredible guide to take you all along the way!
Great trip with Abraham, Jelle and the Captain! Bumpy and fun. We had 70 years old to 8 and all enjoyed. Recommend wearing some kind of swim shoes and don and #39;t forget towels for the amazing stops. Good time.
A great experience on an absolutely lousy weather day! A rain front moved in and we were pelted with rain after the first 30 minutes for the rest of the tour. You were a little cool, a little miserable due to being absolutely soaked but we just made the best of it and had a fun time anyway! Jumping in the natural pool with socks and shoes on reminded me when I went to camp because there wasn't a part of me that wasn't soaked. Having the restaurant right there was great because we were definitely hungry at the end of the tour.
What a great way to see Aruba. We saw sights that we never would have seen.
Our tour guides - Rocky and Brandon, were incredible - ask for them for your next tour!
P.S. Get ready to get bounced around a bit :0

Natural pool was amazing. Would have been a better experience for me if I knew how to swim in deep waters! They gave us a nice meal at the end. BBQ chicken was finger-lickin' good and the drink was so refreshing! Ivo was nice and funny. Would definitely recommend and when I come back to Aruba after learning how to swim I'll do it again! :-
Mark and Ivo were two very energetic tour guides who took us to all the attractions, plus an extra stop at Boba Maho to expereice an additional swim. We really enjoyed the tour. The lunch is so so, and it's at the tour agency's restaurant. I would have opted to eat somewhere else after the tour.
This was the best 4X4 tour. Our guides Big G and Ron were fantastic guides. They made the entrie experience fun and pleasurable for all. Ron was very knowledgeable about the islands history and gave plenty of details about specific sites that we stopped. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
I highly recommend booking your Natural Pool tour with ABC tours. Our guide, Hugo, was wonderful, light hearted, and very knowledgeable. My kids 10 and 12 had a blast riding in the truck and snorkeling in the pool was! fun. Water shoes highly recommended
Great tour with ABC tours. Even though we had done the same tour in 2013, it seemed like a new experience because of our crew, Jay, Greg and Joel. These guys enjoy entertaining their clients and went out of their way to do so. We will definitely do this again on our next visit,
