Hotel pickup and drop-off in Oranjestad makes for a seamless experience.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Oranjestad hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle, head to the California Lighthouse to learn about its history and snap photos of the views.

Next, stop at the Ayo and Casibari rock formations, where you’ll learn about their geology, see ancient paintings made by the Arawak Indians, the island’s original inhabitants, and hike to the top of the largest boulder.

At the Bushiribana gold mine ruins, look for flecks of gold left over from Aruba’s gold rush before moving on to an aloe vera factory, where you’ll take a tour and shop for souvenirs.

Head on to visit a traditional Aruban home to see how islanders have lived for centuries, thens stop at the family-owned Charlie’s Bar, serving up drinks for the past 75 years.

Half-day tour was great!

Took 1/2 day tour with Curtis. He was very knowledgeable of the island and it's history. He was patient when we wanted more time at one spot compared to another. Also provided cold water and a snack!
