The tour was not expensive and we saw quite a lot of the island, including the beautiful North shore where we saw the Alta Vista Chapel. The arid terrain has its own beauty, not unlike Arizona without the Saguaro. We saw the famous California lighthouse (not inside, it was closed) and saw many hotels and casinos. My sense is that Aruba is a great place for beautiful beach vacations with casinos and plenty of restaurants, but there is not much history to see on the island. Read Less

We didn't quite know what to do, again we don't like beaches and we wanted to see the island. We selected the Natural Wonders tour. We started at a butterfly farm. The people there were great! We've been to other butterfly farms but the staff here were great "storytellers" and kept the group entertained. We went on to an aloe factory. The staff rushed the tour and took us through the factory and into the store -- we were told that there were videos in the downstairs and if there was no production, it probably would have been more interesting to see the videos. Finally we went to the side of an old stone bridge. It was pretty and it was amazing to see how much of a desert island Aruba is. After the excursion we walked around town for a while. We had a bit of a map but the sites were not well labeled. The stores near the port were typical. Read Less

Comfortable bus, many stops and enough time to visit each venue appropriately. The tour included the Aloe Balm facility, the Butterfly Farm, the Natural Bridge and various other points of interest, all well worthwhile.

Tour operator did not include the Natural Bridge area as a stop.

Tour operator did not include the Natural Bridge area as a stop. Excuse was that the road was too bad. Make sure that all areas are included before you do independent tours.

If that was the Best of Aruba no one would go there. We went to a local nursery, a fallen natural bridge, a non-functional lighthouse,and a pile of boulders.
