Aruba Ayo Rock Formations Excursion Reviews

Towering stone boulders, placed in such close proximity and in unusual designs, combined with the tranquil environment of Ayo, create a sense of awe and an understanding of why the area was once considered a sacred site by the island's original inhabitants (the Arawak Indians).
Great tour guide.
Great tour guide. Very knowledgeable about island. Saw the rock formations, the natural bridge, the first chapel, the lighthouse, overall nice tour.

This was a good excursion but the tour guide/driver got on my nerves with the use of okie dokie it distracted me from the overall beauty of the land. Highlights was the lighthouse with the donkeys they were so cute!

This was advertised as the natural bridge by the sea but that bridge had collapsed so they took us to a park with boulders and cactus. It was a nice park but would have liked to know of the itinerary change beforehand,

There is much more to see at this stop then they allow time for. It takes 15 minutes just to climb to the top and come down. that was all the time they gave us. No time to explore and take really good pictures.

As we did not book a cruise line tour we were quite delighted to find buses ready to take us on an island joint for just $20 a person! If you want an air-conditioned, luxury bus this is not for you. Instead we found ourselves in a converted school bus that had all the windows removed!The tour lasted about 2.5 hours and covered the highlights of Aruba. At the end of the tour we had plenty of time to explore the downtown. Don't miss the new Anthropology Museum. Its free, and its quite interesting. Read Less
