Christine and Eloy Arends started Kini Kini Transfer & Tours.
Ever since the company’s establishment on April 4 back in 2004, it has been our mission to give every client the ultimate personalized experience in transportation and guided tours. Christine, born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, was chased by the harsh Chicago winters to sunny Florida.
One day, at school, she met a jolly group of Arubans who convinced her to take a trip to the island, which she did, and met her husband, Eloy Arends. The couple, who at the time only had a Hyundai 12-seater, founded Kini Kini Transfer & Tours. They started this project after the bank where Christine had been working for 15 years was sold in 2004.
That same year they decided to enter the booming, dynamic market of tourism in Aruba.
Now, a decade and a half later, their unwavering dedication and persistence in the face of tough challenges and risks have grown the company into one big happy family. With a robust fleet of 20+ specialized transportation and off-road vehicles, driven by who seems to be quite possibly the most joyful staff you could find in Aruba.
