    Thumbs up WIX Tours is terrific!

    We just returned from a week vacation in Aruba-our first time there. We booked online airport transfer with Marcantonio of WIX Tours and couldn't have been more pleased with his service. Mercedes of WIX was waiting for us inside the airport terminal as we came out of customs. She had a sign with our name on it and a big smile on her face-definitely a wonderful first welcome to Aruba. She was extremely friendly and chatted with us during the ride to our hotel. We used WIX for our return trip to the airport when we left and Marcantonio picked us up promptly at 6:00 a.m. from our hotel. Amazingly friendly and helpful. The rates for the airport transfer were $45 each way and well worth every cent. No extra charge for luggage, which they load and unload. I would recommend this service to anyone planning a trip to Aruba!

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum.

    although "wix" tours gave you exceptional service, what you had hired them for was for all intents and purposes "taxi service to and from the airport to your hotel".

    the $45 one way - $90 r/t price was high (maybe somewhat comparable to the motor coach buses that provide transfers to and from airport/hotels)

    did WIX give a tour along the way ? stopping so that you could take photos?
    going to lighthouse? baby beach? alto vista chapel? gold mine ruins? arikok?
    if any of these tours/detours along the way to and from the airport happened, then i apologize!

    here is the link to show government imposed taxi fares.there is a $3 surcharge for Sundays and holidays.
    it is considerably less than what you paid.

    Hey Andrea

    you are right about the taxi rate but it was a private transfer from the airport to the hotel that rate is normal for a private pick up and drop off

    thanks for letting me know that is WIX's "normal" airport to hotel transfer rate.

    my point though, is it is less expensive to take a taxi for pretty much the same service.
