What to expect
Begin your comprehensive Aruban adventure with convenient pickup from your hotel in an open-air bus decked out in cheerful Caribbean colors. Sit back and relax, feeling the island breeze and sipping rum punch, soda, or water from the open bar as your guide provides engaging commentary. Highlights include the remains of the Natural Bridge (collapsed in 2005), the Bushiribana gold mine ruins, the historic Alto Vista Chapel, and the California Lighthouse. Make a stop at each to stretch your legs, have a look around, and take photos while learning history from your guide. Stop midday for a barbecue lunch at a local restaurant before heading on to see ancient Amerindian petroglyphs at Guadirikiri caves, the unusual Ayo rock formations, and some of the rugged vistas in Arikok National Park. At the southern shore, spend some free time relaxing, sunbathing, and swimming at Baby Beach, where you can rent snorkel gear.

Great tour for all ages!!!!
Sep 2021
My husband and I have been going to Aruba for 20+ years. We brought a friend with us for the first time. This tour was great! We went to places we hadn't seen. Victor, the tour guide takes you all over the island. He took us to each city /town. We also liked an open air bus which gives you that island breeze. You will love this tour.
Check out the website for all the tour details.

History of Aruba

It was a rocky but fun open bus tour and our tour guide, Victor, was very informative with providing the history of the island.

I wish we could have stayed at Baby Beach longer than an hour.

Great jeep tour (Off Road)
We had a great off-road trip with Viktor, our guide from Pelican Adventures. We visited the Quadirikiri caves, other beautiful caves, all national park of Aruba - Arikok, natural Bridge, other important landmarks and the natural pool on the other side of the island. Viktor is full of knowledge and offered interesting information about the history, and details about the island and the inhabitants. After the swim in the natural pool we all returned to Pelican pier where we had a great lunch, included in the tour. This is not an easy trip due to the off road part, please read carefully the details on their site regarding the tour.

Great day! A half day trip from 9 am - 4 pm. Guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and patient. We saw all the most important places, with plenty of free beverages. This was a good choice for us, since we are not big beer or rum drinkers. More time exploring and less drinking made it a hit.

The tour was mediocre. we had more loud music blasting then commentary. Our guide started out by telling us ALL the DO NOTS. I know we were on an old raggedy school bus, but REALLY!!! The"open" bar was more closed than open, and we practically had to beg for every little cup of rum punch. Lunch was...well .. there,and def. a mass production of getting us in and out as fast as possible with the least amount of money spent. The destinations were great, but we had a rental car while on the island, and I regret not doing the tour myself. It would have been a lot cheaper and we would have learned the same maybe even more about the attractions had we done it ourselves.

Good morning valued customer, Thank you for your review and for choosing Pelican Adventures as your preferred Tour Operator. We do appologize if you found the music was too loud on-board, we will take this into consideration in order to secure that each of our guests are accommodated comfortably on all our trips. We do have to make sure we handle the safety procedures as soon every guest is on-board our open-air Caribbean-style busses. As per the bar, unfortunately we do not offer an open-bar during the whole tour, as the Tour Guide will be driving most of the time during the tour and will make sure to offer drinks to our guests at the destination-stops. The lunch during the tour is served at a restaurant along the route while heading towards the Baby Beach where guests can relax and enjoy a nice swim, the restaurant is well-known by offering delicious chicken dishes and in a much easier and faster basis compared to our own restaurant which offers lunch to our Jeep Tour guests. Thank you for your review. We do appreciate it, as we strive to offer high quality services and products to each of our potential, new- and repeat guests. Hope to welcome you back soon at the Pelican Adventures on one of our water- and/or land tours. Regards, Pelican Adventures Team

Fun Tour Guide!
My mom and I did the tour. Got to see a lot of the Island, spent about 10 minutes at each spot. Enough to take pictures. Good lunch. Swam at Baby Beach near end. I recommend exploring more of Arikok when ever possible, my favorite sights weren't on this tour, but some I hadn't seen previously were so I enjoyed it!

So much fun
Aug 2019
We loved this bus tour! Our tour guide Tony was hilarious and very knowledgeable about the island. He taught us a lot, not just about the places we stopped but a lot of other things throughout the trip. We got to see basically the whole island! The open bus was cool and a nice way to get fresh air without being in the hot sun for the entire day. We loved the natural bridge and caves, and got a good amount of time at Baby Beach!
