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

The visit to the aloe factory is part of a multi-stop bus trip. The factory tour guide was very informative and provided an excellent walk through the factory at the viewing windows. At the end of the tour you are given a chance to visit the factory store and purchase their products. Be aware that there is also a store... More

We didn't plan on going to this but it was a stop on our tour. We were pleasantly surprised on the cleanliness and informative tour we received. It's interesting to see how Aloe gets from the plant to the stores...

There is a free tour at the production facility which takes about 20 minutes. Don't expect to much, you will visit a small museum, then you go upstairs to see the production. In case you don't have a vehicle to get at the factory, there is also a shop in Oranjestad that shows a small part of the production of... More

The shop offers a brief tour and gives a lot of information about the history and uses of aloe. It's more than just for burns. That part is super interesting. The shop is nice but pricey. To be honest, it would be much cheaper to buy aloe and concoct your own products. The aloe vera plant field next to the... More

Did the tour and actually liked it, I bought a few of the creams. I am trying the cream for eczema and hoping that it will help. I actually ate the aloe, but it was bitter,

I wanted to see this place because 13 years ago my husband had a very serious sun burn and all healed without traces by the product produced by this factory. Since then I have no doubt about its efficiency and wanted to see how the products are produced, some of its history and finally buy them to use during our... More

Stopped here for a small tour of the facility. The tour leader took us without waiting for more people and walked us through the process of draining, skinning, and using the meat of the aloe. Being from Texas, we have aloe growing in or yard and its very interesting to know how to use aloe besides on injuries. There is... More
