Aruba Highlights Tour
Sale Price: $49.00
Explore Aruba in an air-conditioned bus. Your friendly and professional tour guide will show you the attractions and natural landmarks of Aruba.
You will make a visit 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. You will have the opportunity to take a tour through the state-of-the-art Aruba Aloe Factory and learn more about its history in the adjacent museum.
You will also see some of Aruba's famous natural wonders including Casibari Rock Formations and, if roads permit, the Natural Bridge, a formation of coral limestone cut by years of pounding surf. It was one of the largest natural spans in the world, standing 23 feet above sea level and spanning more than 100 feet across until it collapsed in 2005. Nearby is the Baby Bridge, a smaller version of the Natural Bridge.
Next you will travel to Alto Vista Chapel. The chapel was built on the site of the first Catholic church built in Aruba in 1750 by a Spanish missionary. It is a special place for peace and contemplation, surrounded by the Aruban countryside. Your final stop will be at the famous California Light House, named after a ship called the Californian, 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.

Great tour! We saw so much in so little time, without feeling rushed. Tour group size was perfect.

We had an excellent tour-only 13 people on the bus. E cellent English speaking guide, most comprehensive tour, well paced and a visit to the aloe Vera factory. I was so impressed with this organization. Great overview of Aruba.
We enjoyed this tour as it gave a good overview of Aruba. Short time at each location but each was interesting. Like seeing Aruba at every level...from the very poor to the elite. Clifford our tour guide was very interesting most of the time...but a bit "off-color" at one point with personal TMI!
The Tour Guide was easily spotted when we departed the ship. He was very knowledgeable and cracked jokes along the way. Enjoyed this Aruba tour and would not hesitate to go with this tour company again.
