Full description
Your first stop will take you to the Aloe Vera Factory and Museum. Aloe, first introduced to the island in 1840, became a very important part of Aruba's history. At one point Aruba was the largest exporter of Aloe in the world with almost two-thirds of the island covered in plants. Next you will visit the Casibari Rock Formation, a cluster of huge rocks that inexplicably rises up from the desert soil to create an unusual setting, and then you will continue to the Natural Bridge, a formation of coral limestone cut by years of pounding surf, and then to the Alto Vista Chapel, built on the site of the first Catholic church in Aruba in 1750. Your next stop will be at the famous California Light House, named after a ship called the California, which has the distinction of having received distress signals from the Titanic as she went down in icy waters in 1912. This area offers some of the most beautiful scenic views of Aruba. Your final stop will be at Arashi Beach, famous for its beautiful white sand and great snorkeling.

Our tour was great and allowed us to see parts of the island we may not have seen otherwise. I do wish we knew in advance to bring our own snorkel equipment because we were really excited about that and then didn’t go bc we didn’t have equipment. Our guide was awesome though and even went out of his way to return our hat we left on the bus.

Our guide Wendell was very knowledgeable, patient and professional. He made the tour a wonderful experience. We were told about the history of the island and the sites we visited, and he answered any questions we had. The tour was a great value for the price. You are able to see some of Aruba's most famous sites and are given plenty of time to take photos.

Very cool ride. The guide was super friendly and funny as well as demonstrating a lot of knowledge of the region. There's water on the bus. In the end we stay on the beach and can snorkel, however without supervision. After an hour the guide came to pick us up by bus.
