Good tour but we spent too much time seeing cacti and rocks in the dessert. We wished we had booked another tour to enjoy the pretty beaches.

Toured various points of interest on island and also drove through hotel zone. Aruba is most americanized of the dutch islands and there isn't much to see in oranjestad. Get out of town to get a better experience.

Surprisingly fun little tour of the island. Great views of coastal dunes, cacti forests, and a few landmarks. Nothing to write home about, but a pleasant way to spend an hour, especially if you're like me and have not been to aruba

Not much on the island to see.
Sail Date: February 2018
Not much on the island to see. Stop at a beach was the highlight, but were only given a hour. Overall, the problem was our Aruba stop was too short.

I cannot recommend the "Best of Aruba" tour highly enough! Our driver Benjamin was amazing! We were able to see the Aloe factory, natural bridge, and a stop near a restaurant overlooking the Caribbean Sea for pictures. If you take this tour and see the "Yum Yum Bus," make sure to get a coconut smoothie (or one of many other flavors if you do not like coconut), The coconut smoothie was delicious and even had little bits of coconut in it.

ship tour "by land and sea" Pelican tours and Robinson was our ship guide. Open air bus had a bad microphone so it was very hard to understand. It rained so those by the windows got a little wet. The driver played Cheesy music and there could have been more history commentary. The Boat portion was great, Robinson, the guide, was informative, interactive and funny. He made the tour. Word of advice - top of boat ONLY holds 20 people by law so be there first. We were over capacity, but no one wanted to leave. Read Less

Took the $20 tour in one of the old school buses at the port exit. Ayo Rocks, Catholic church, lighthouse, and Eagle Beach. 2 hours at Eagle Beach. My wife (1st time to Aruba) enjoyed it. It is Aruba Lite. I have done an extensive tour previously that is more interesting but nothing that is compelling to an experienced traveller. I like Baby Beach, but it is a long way from anything.

Aruba Sea & See Island Tour was the highlight of this cruise. Motor coach tour made several stops where we could get off bus and spend time sightseeing. Then we transferred to a highspeed ferry which took us out to the glass bottom sub for cruising the corals. We saw several kinds of fish, divers, snorkels and a large shipwreck. Returned to shore and motor coach returned us to ship. We highly recommend this tour. Great value! Read Less

Stunning natural attractions. Absolutely beautiful island, definitely take a tour and see the natural bridge and the rock formations and the other popular natural attractions. This is the only island that provides this type of experience. The landscape is very different from Dominican Republic and Curacao, as it is essentially a desert. There are cactuses everywhere, and for a Canadian girl, that was a very nice sight. Read Less
