We just got back from a week in Aruba. This tour was my favorite thing we did. The tour was not advertised at the hotel as only the large/major tour company on the Island got that spotlight, but we saw an advertisement at the airport. I was interested in this company because the cost was less and the length of the tour was longer than the hotel's tour company. After doing the tour, I'm confident we definitely made the right choice.

They are a small company with a really nice owner named Jason (we met him briefly) and a fantastic guide named AB. The UTV ran very well and was a blast to drive. The island is rocky and arid and we had fun navigating the terrain while overlooking and visiting beautiful beach spots. AB (tour guide) was fantastic. He picked us up at the hotel in a clean/comfortable Jeep Wrangler. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Towards the end of the tour AB spotted a 4-foot boa constrictor and we enjoyed watching him catch it and take it back to the animal shelter. He then returned us to the hotel.

You definitely get dirty due to all the dust, so be prepared for that. Bring a swimsuit as you'll likely get to visit and swim in the Natural Pool, which was my favorite part of the tour. They provide fluids and at a few of the tour stops you can buy some food. I really can't say enough great things about this UTV tour and the tour company and would highly recommend it.

I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a UTV tour of the east side of the island. Seeing the animal rescue shelter was educational and a great way to start off the day. Machines were very clean and well maintained. Our guide, AB, was friendly, funny, and a blast to spend half a day with. He even took us swimming in the Natural Pool after the park ranger suggested that it was too rough that day. He jumped in first to show the rest of us that he felt it to be safe enough to enter. Great time was had by all!

PLEASE CONSIDER THIS REVIEW!!!!!!! We just got back from our trip to Aruba. We did the Around Aruba Tour and it was our favorite tour that we have ever done. AB was our guide. He loves the island, did not rush, was very informative and a delight to hang out with for the today. The tour starts at an animal farm, which was very nice and we loved their mission. The farm takes care of orphaned and displaced animals. Being animal lovers, we support their cause and enjoyed the brief visit. It was a great start....then you hop on the OTV/UTVs....The tour stops by all of the amazing sites of Aruba.....Gold mine, Natural Pool, Little Bridge and an amazing tour of the untouched Aruban Countryside.....High desert landscape on one side and beautiful East Coast Aruban coastline on the other. If you want to explore the best of Aruba's sites this is the tour to consider. DO NOT GET SUCKED INTO THE "HOTEL" PACKAGE TOURS. They are for tourists. BUT, If you want to see Aruba, go to Around Aruba Tours. The only thing to note is this tour is more for younger, adventurous people. It does get dusty and dirty so bring a hat, sunglasses, swimsuit, towel and rugged shoes. This tour is not for older or unfit people or people that do not like to roll up your sleeves. You will get dirty...but you'll really see Aruba. Thanks again AB we had a blast!

This was the best tour in Aruba - The ATV tour was incredible. The trip to the Phillips Animal Farm was awesome. AB was a grea tour guide. Don't waste your time and money on the trips the hotels push! Request the best one with Around Aruba Tours!

We had the best time on this UTV tour. What an adventure! AB was the best guide, with his knowledge, wit and flexibility. He loves his home and it shows - happy guy! This was the highlight of our trip, especially the natural pool! Absolutely amazing and gorgeous.
