What makes this tour different is that it will not only be informative but it will be lots of fun with Caribbean music as you dance to Aruba’s top 2 carnival songs. You will surely leave this tour with a smile and a wonderful story to take back home. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included on this shared group tour.

What to Expect
Get picked up from your hotel or the cruise-ship port, board the vibrantly colored, open-air bus, and kick off your island sightseeing tour. Caribbean music greets you as your guide explains the role music plays on Aruba and teaches you a few funky dance moves. Begin your tour in Oranjestad as your guide shares the island’s history and points out important historic sites. Then make your way to top landmarks such as the Casibari Rock Formation, Natural Bridge, Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, Alto Vista Chapel, and the California Lighthouse. At each key stop you have 15 to 20 minutes to snap some photos and enjoy the views. Next, enjoy an hour swimming and snorkeling at a beach on the southwest side of the island. Snorkel gear is included on this tour, as are snacks and bottled water. Your half-day sightseeing experience ends with transportation back to your hotel or cruise ship.

We got chocolate or vanilla wafers on the half day tour, but there were snack shops at most sites. You can also bring some snacks in your bag and leave your belongings on the bus while you roam around :)
