I've been to the island a few times and I'm probably one of the only people who hated the jeep tour, I was petrified the whole time My husband has never been to the island. What's a good tour to see the island? Besides the jeep?
Depalm has a 1/2 day tour, hits all the sites necessary and you don't feel like you've wasted the day away. You go on the A/C bus. My relatives thought it was just perfect, and not a waste of time. I don't know the stops it makes however but they do pick u up at the hotel. ALso, I think that movie of the island might still be around at the Crystal Casino in Ren marina.
I would suggest Cerry Croes. Very knowledgeable and great tour. It is a private tour and he can take you where ever you want to go (Ididn't care for the jeep tour either) and for however long you want. My son took 3 hours to do the island with a stop at Baby Beach for a short swim!
You can contact him directly and he has just made a website. My son and his girlfriend made the photo gallery.
We just got back last night, already suffering from withdrawals, and we would highly recommend Cerry. This was our 9th time in Aruba and we thought we knew a fair amount about the island, not even close! Our tour was to begin monday at 11:00, Cerry was at our Hotel 10 minutes early and we got started. cerry is a wealth of knowledge of the history of the island, took us places we didn't know existed! We went from one end of the island to the other and side to side. We went to the "tourist areas", through local neighborhoods, anyplace WE wanted to go and see. There was so much to learn that we will do another tour with him next year. if you want a REAL tour of the island and not a sightseeing tour, book with Cerry.
