What You Can Expect

Landmarks of Aruba Including Arikok National Park and Arashi Beach

Alto Vista Chapel in Aruba

Visit Aruba’s most popular landmarks aboard a brightly colored converted school bus and enjoy the tropical island breeze through large open windows. Meet your guide at hotel pickup and listen to fascinating facts about the Caribbean island as you sip unlimited beverages (soda, rum punch, fruit punch and water) on board.

Your tour provides a closer look at attractions like Arashi Beach, the California Lighthouse and Tierra del Sol Country Club and Resort, located at Aruba’s northwest coast. Snap photos from your perch or disembark to stretch your legs. 

Driving south along the island’s eastern coastline, you’ll visit Alto Vista Chapel, the ruins of the 19th-century Bushiribana gold mine and the remains of the Natural Bridge — a limestone formation that collapsed in 2005. 

Around midday, enjoy a barbecue lunch served at La Granja restaurant. 

Get a glimpse of the mysterious Ayo rock formations before heading to Arikok National Park to see the Amerindian petroglyphs at Guadirikiri Caves. Take a 15-minute guided tour inside one of the caves, whose two chambers are illuminated by sunlight streaming down through holes in the ceiling. 

Arriving at Aruba’s southern end, finish with 45 minutes of free time at Baby Beach. Swim in the shallow waters of the tranquil lagoon; if you wish to further explore the marine life, snorkel gear is available to rent (own expense).

 Your 6.5-hour tour ends with hotel drop-off in the late afternoon.

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.

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

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.

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
Happy Tours!
