Tour Details

Explore Aruba in an air-conditioned bus on the Aruba Highlights Tour. 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 make a short stop at the Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins on your way to the 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. Following the Chapel, you will visit 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.

Your day ends with a refreshing swim (sea and weather conditions permitting) in the pristine waters of Aruba at Arashi Beach, renowned for its beautiful white sand and great snorkeling. You will get the opportunity to go for a swim, do some tanning, or go snorkeling. Snorkeling equipment will be provided.

4 StarsHad conflicts with Carnival celebrationMarch 21, 2018

Reviewer: Marybeth Nelson
Pro: Interesting island. Enjoyed the Ayo rock formations and the natural bridge stop. Arashi beach was clean and a bit crowded, probably due to families celebrating Carnival. Cons: The guide did not know that the aloe factory would be closed as were the restrooms at the beach - all because of Carnival. We were unable to get reliable information from our guide or our ship as to what was opened or closed during our visit. Would recommend this tour at another date.
