We were picked up right at the port terminal and had several tourist stops along with the Aloe plant. The stops included the Natural Bridge, The Alto Vista Church and the California Lighthouse. Our walking tour of the Aruba Aloe Plant was very informative and a great introduction to the many healthful benefits of using Aloe. The stops we made on this tour were interesting and memorable. The bus driver/tour guide Clifton was enlightening and humorous, we had a great time and this was an awesome tour. One of my most favorite in all of my cruising excursions out of eight different cruises I’ve been on! Read Less

Workers gave an interesting demonstration of how Aloe is hand-extracted from the plants. Could have used more explanation inside the factory itself. A number of products on sale in the store at the end of this tour.

Very small factory. The guide greeted us with a demonstration of cutting open a piece of aloe and then led us through a small "museum" area and up a flight of stairs to view the processing area where no photos were permitted. out of four areas, only one had any activity. Three women were working. One filling blue bottles, one putting on the caps and one applying labels. We were then brought downstairs into the gift shop. The samples on display seemed high quality, but the prices were extremely high. This was a disappointing stop. Unfortunately, our bus developed some mechanical problems, so we were sitting on the bus waiting for a fix for about 40 minutes. Read Less
