Small but interesting museum with informative staff. Linda gave us a personal tour showing us the field of aloe plants and explaining the history of the products. We then went up to the viewing gallery to watch modern production in progress. Exit through the gift shop to sample the lotions and balms, and of course purchase some to take home.

There is a small but informative museum at the plant where you can see original products, packaging, historical machines and the lives of the people who worked gathering aloe for the plants. A lofty gallery that surrounds the factory floors allows you to watch workers as they process the aloe and make it into the products that are sold around... More

This stop was part of our cruise ship tour of Aruba. The tour begins with a guide discussing and demonstrating how the Aloe plant is harvested and prepared for production. The tour takes you on a short walk through the plant (you go along a hallway and look down at the factory through windows) where you see the leaves being... More

This was one of the stops on our private tour. I found the tour very interesting. I learned a lot about how the products are produced and packaged from start to finish. The tour is only 15 minutes or so with the tour guides making it interesting and at times funny. After the tour, you can stop at the store... More

Although this was interesting, I wouldn't suggest doing it as your only tour-we saw it as part of a cruise excursion. The factory is fairly small and not really exciting. You cannot go on the "farm" but can see it because it's a big field of aloe located next to the factory. You end the short "tour" (up steps, along... More

Did a tour of this facility while on a cruise. I have to say at first I wasn't to interested. But it was very informative. The tour guide Sarah was great. The products they manufacture are nothing but amazing. I tried many of them and they are wonderful. High quality skin care products.

The whole "tour" is nothing but a way to get people into their store. Also, be warned you will have to walk up and down steep staircases, so this isn't a good idea for anyone with mobility issues. Products are VERY expensive.

This tour was part of a package tour. I didn't know a lot about aloe before this. They showed us the aloe plants, and how to cut and get aloe from them and this was within the 1st 10 minutes of the tour. All of the tour guides were very informative. They showed us different rooms where different steps of... More
