Aruba Highlights Tour

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 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. This area offers some of the most beautiful scenic views of Aruba.

nice tour

Enjoyed our first stop at the Aloe factory. It was very informative and you could see the fields and production. The rest of the tour was very scenic and it was a great way to spend a few hours on Aruba. Our guide was informative and knowledgeable. The bus was right outside of the ship and easy to find. I would use Shore Excursions Group for my tours again.

This was a small group and our tour guide/bus driver was very informative and willing to answer all of our questions. He did not rush us at stops and showed us all over the island. Wished we would have had time to go up in the lighthouse, but other than that it was great.

We we got off the ship, there was no rep from the excursion company present. A bit of confusion at first. The bus arrived late. After a shaky start, the tour was great. We saw the Island of Aruba. Bus operator was engaging, he actually said the regular driver called in sick. Very informative tour.
