Great excursion in Aruba

Recommended Posts

Just recently back from 11 night cruise on Reflection and found an excellent tour with great value. Its from #1 tours and the operator Paul stopped us on our way off the ship at the pier. He has a few open air buses and for $20 a person he takes you to the rock formation, the chapel and then the lighthouse. You stop for around 15 minutes at each stop. During the trip to each he provides great info about Aruba, housing, education, languages etc. Then for those that want to, he will drop you off at Eagle beach and return two hours later to pick you up and drop you back at the ship. For $20 a person its a great deal.

Yes. Paul the driver stated that to me but he positions himself as soon as you walk off the ship. He is on the right side before the colored tents.

We also did a $20.00pp tour with a company just outside the terminal door....but it certainly wasn't an "open air" bus..our's was air conditioned and thankfully so !!

Thanks for the review.  We took a bus tour that stopped at the aloe factory, the rock formations, and the bridge.

We saw about 2/3 of the island!

Thanks Steve for the recommendation, will definitely watch for this tour when we’re in Aruba next month.
