    Interesting tour
    We visited this place on our bus excursion- Fantasy tour. We got a demonstration on how they get aloe and then a tour of the factory. It was interesting and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. We ended off in the gift shop. We didn’t buy anything. The products are quite pricy.

    Fun & Interesting
    Visiting the Aloe Factory was part of a tour we chose-we looked forward to seeing the 160-year old history!. We enjoyed hearing how the aloe is harvested; our guide was very knowledgeable. We toured during an employee break so we didn't get to see the process, but it was astounding how clean the factory was maintained. At the end, you come to the gift shop. I did purchase a few items and love them all. To add, this is a fairly quick tour so it doesn't take up a huge part of your day.

    Natural gem
    Natural gem! This was such a great stop. So glad we finally went. Loved the tour and the store! Factory is pristine and staff were wonderful. Great products you can’t always find at satellite stores or airport.

    Great!
    So interesting! The factory tour was informative and seeing the aloe growing in the fields outside was amazing. The products were top notch and helped with the sunburns we got at the beach. The facility was clean and employees were wonderful. Definitely recommend!

    Thumbs Up to the Aloe Factory!
    Daniel, our tour guide, was very good at explaining the history, the different uses of aloe, and how the factory works. My daughter and I learned some history and enjoyed buying different products at the factory's store. You could probably finish in about an hour so it's not very long, but def worth visiting if you're in the country!

    Love the museum
    I really had a great time on my tour of the museum that I went back the next day and brought more items. Once we got home, we started thinking about items that we should had brought from there. I will be online this weekend placing an order. This is a must do by yourself, with friends and family. The cashier was extremely helpful when I was asking questions. I wish I remembered her name so I could give her a bunch of thank you.

    Interesting and enjoyable
    This tour was truly enjoyable and the aloe information was so interesting. This was a good mix for our interests. We both learned something interesting about aloe and bought quality products to bring home for ourselves and family. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience fun. Highly recommend for couples or families.

    Great visit wanted to see more but time was limited as we were on a tour and only spent a few short at each stop. It's very nice in Aruba and was interesting that you had your own factory and are able to use a resource that is widely grown there. Would like to know more and how I can bring the product into the Bahamas for sales.

    Great place, history & high quality products
    Definitely a place to visit if you are in Aruba. Take one of the free tours and learn about history and production. Products are of high quality and amazing, but habe their price point. But Definitely are worth it!

    Excellent tour and demonstration of Aruba's signature primary industry!
    The way Arubans take so much pride in the history of the aloe plant and its cultivation is truly delightful! We learned how to cut and process aloe in the aloe fields and then we watched the process of converting the plants into lotion and other products from the top of the factory. It's all free—but you'll definitely want to buy some after the tour ;) Oh, and Brittany (a cashier) and Daniel (our tour guide) were excellent!

Great experience, a guided tour is available if you would like to learn more about the aloe plant and its many uses, they have a museum on site as well, I visited the store and made a purchase of aloe after burn, and I would recommend this product.

The museum is full of history and information. I learned a lot from the tour and about the many uses of aloe. CJ was a wonderful tour guide! Trainee was the friendliest salesperson and very helpful. I made three separate purchases!!!! Two at the museum and one at the resort store. I was nursing a sun burn from the day before and quickly discovered how wonderful and natural Aruba Aloe products are.

Very interesting museum. I learned so much about the benefits of aloe Vera. The workers there were able to answer all the visitors questions about skin care and health care options with aloe Vera.

The Aloe Factory was a stop on our Best of Aruba excursion from the Norwegian Prima. It was interesting and fun to learn about the industry. It is a short tour and the gift shop is a little pricey, but overall a nice activity - glad we went!

We started with the tour. It’s pretty interesting until the end when the tour guide asks for tips because they don’t pay him enough. Remove 1 star. We bought about $70 worth of items and when we got home we reviewed the bill and they charged us for 2 items that we only bought one of. Remove another star. I sent them an email as soon as we got home about the overcharge and they responded saying within 48 hours they would get back to us. Well it’s been 6 days now and no follow up by them. Take off a third star. And just get ready for sticker shock as the prices on their products are out of this world.

Surrounded by lush aloe vera fields, the guided tours provide fascinating insights into the cultivation and processing of this versatile plant. The informative guides share the history of aloe in Aruba, showcasing its healing properties and diverse uses. The factory's commitment to sustainable practices is evident, and visitors can shop for high-quality aloe products, from soothing lotions to nourishing skincare. A visit to the Aloe Factory in Aruba is not only a treat for the senses but also an appreciation of nature's bounty and the island's dedication to preserving its natural resources.

This was a stop on a half-day tour we booked. I wasn’t excited about it, as I figured it was a tourist trap. Boy, was I wrong! We got a great demonstration of how they pull the aloe vera gel out of the plant…we learned about the history of aloe in Aruba. We got to see the factory (from above). Our guide explained how each of their items worked…it was really helpful to be able to tell the different products apart. Of course, the end was in the gift shop, where I spent a good bit of money. The staff in the shop were able to help us with clarifying exactly which items I actually wanted. They do ship through their website, so I can order more!
