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.

Vehicle had A/C. Really hot outside. Great tour guide but too hot/humid to get out. Been to Aruba before and never that hot. Met at dock as described in email and driven to next pick up location.

We couldn't have been happier with our tour of Aruba except for the dreary weather day that unfortunately came with it. We had never been there and very much looked forward to the fantastic weather we heard is there most of the year. Other than that our guide was very informative, safe and really engaged everyone answering any questions we had.

Not spectacular, but gave us a sense of 1/2 of the Island.

This was a great tour! The small group size made it very memorable as the guide had plenty of time to answer questions and provide information on Aruba that came as a surprise to us. We really enjoyed the personal touch!
