Tour Details

Full Day 4x4 Jeep Safari

There is a "hidden Aruba," and you'll discover it on this excellent full-day tour of the island by four-wheel-drive Jeep. The four-door Jeep provides access to numerous outstanding locations not accessible by standard vehicles. The Jeeps are automatic and hold four guests only. If you have fewer than four in your group, your guide will match you up with others. Guests drive their own Jeeps and there will be several chances to stop and switch drivers. Guests wanting a private Jeep will need to purchase all four seats.

Follow your professional and friendly tour guide as they lead you on a comprehensive tour where you will visit the California Lighthouse, 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.

After the California Light House, you will make a short stop at the Rock Garden, a garden of stacked rocks created by tourists like you over the years. This stop also gives a great view of the rough North Coast.

Your next stop will be 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.

No tour of Aruba would be complete without viewing its many natural wonders. Your Jeep will take you to the famous 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.

After your visit to the bridge, you will get a chance to find some gold at the Bushiribana gold mine ruins. The Bushiribana smelter was built in 1872 by the Aruba Island Gold Mining Company to extract gold from the ore that was being mined in the nearby hills of Ceru Plat. It operated for ten years.

You will also visit the Ayo Rock Formation, where you can see ancient Indian drawings left behind by the original inhabitants of Aruba. Lunch and refreshments will then be served in a local restaurant. After lunch, you will drive through the famous Frenchmen's Pass on your way to Baby Beach for some spectacular swimming in the crystal-clear waters of Aruba. Popular for its clear blue waters inside a calm bay, Baby Beach has been a long time favorite among visitors to our island. Snorkel gear is available for rental as well.

This was the best destination excursion we've ever done. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable - we stopped at a bunch of great sightseeing locations - we had a great bbq lunch with a tour of an ostrich farm - and finished the day with a stop at a great beach. All in all a great time, but be prepared for a rough ride while driving off road.

The tour its self was excellent Guide's name was Ronald. You see a lot of the island. After the tour was over I left my sneakers on the return bus back to ship. I found their number and called. They went out of their way to return my sneakers to me before the ship left. We were there in May. Well worth the money in many ways.

We chose the full day tour. And, we'd do it again for sure. The Jeeps were clean, new, and nice. Our guide Ronald was very knowledgeable, helpful and funny. So much better than riding around the island on a bus!
