Itinerary

Be ready for convenient pickup at your hotel in Oranjestad and prepare to learn all you ever wanted to know about Aruba. Buckle in to your air-conditioned tour vehicle and take off for a whirlwind tour, stopping first at the California Lighthouse, dating from 1910. Learn about the landmark’s history through your guide’s commentary and snap photos of the panoramic views from the vantage point of the rocky outcropping on which it sits.

The day’s next stop is either the Casibari or Ayo rock formations, where you can stroll around to take in the unusual shapes and learn about their formation over the years from your guide. At the Casibari rock formations, you can also see some ancient paintings made by the Arawak Indians, the island’s original inhabitants, or hike around an easy loop up to the top of the largest boulder.

At the Bushiribana gold mine ruins, look for flecks of gold in the soil left over from Aruba’s gold rush and snap photos of the north coast landmark before moving on to the Aloe Vera Factory, where you will take a tour and shop for souvenirs.

Visit a traditional Aruban home to see how islanders have lived for centuries; your guide will give you a tour and detail its construction and architecture. Depart for Baby Beach, stopping at the family-owned Charlie’s Bar, serving up drinks for the past 75 years to locals and tourists alike. Once you reach Baby Beach, spend some time unwinding and swimming before returning to your hotel for drop-off.

Great tour!

We really had a fun day. Ato showed us every part of the island. He really took the time to explain everything and to answer our question. He talks different languages. Really recommand this tour. It’s a small bus so it feels like private tour....More

A MUST!

Ato was our guide. He was so knowledgeable about his one happy island. It was fun and informative. One of my favorite stops was The Aloe Factory. This is a smaller company, but big on customer care. I highly recommend.

Great way to see all the focal points

We did the full day tour with Ato. Great guy. Knowledgable, funny, just the right amount of talking/quiet time on the journey. We got about 20 minutes at each stop which was enough time then 1.5 hours at Baby Beach, allowing us to get lunch...More

Very informative

You get to see a huge part of island. We used DePalm tours...Luis was very informative and witty. The north side of island is beautiful. Stops are perfectly timed and not boring.
