Nice little land tour in an air-conditioned bus. Very comfortable. Good guide. Too much time at the Aloe Factory and gift shop for my liking. I do love the Rock Formation area they take you to. Saw the remains of the Natural Bridge. Stopped at California Lighthouse. Offered for some to stay at Arashi Beach if they wanted & they would be back in an hour. They were nice enough to drop my friend & myself off at Moomba Beach so could catch our sailboat excursion from there. Read Less

We booked this at the cruiseport. It was supposed to be a 2-hour tour, our driver threw in some extras so it was actually 3 hours. He then dropped us off at Eagle Beach and picked us up at exactly the time we requested. Eagle Beach was super fine sand. We rented two chairs and an umbrella for $20. There was a nearby food truck, and a bar. There were washrooms and changerooms across the street ($1 per visit). A very relaxing, enjoyable day. Read Less

Booked an independent island tour with a local tour operator outside the port along with 8 other guests, cost $20 per person for a 4 hours trip Taken to an Aloe Vera plant, very interesting then of on the island tour. Good commentary from our driver, but sometimes a little difficult to understand him In all honesty there is very little to see on Aruba except the beaches and the roads are very rough in places, so if you have any sort of back problem don’t go on this trip As on previous islands met plenty of people from the ship at each stop who had booked with Celebrity for twice the price. If you have to confidence then local operators offer a better price than the ship Read Less
