Spend one hour at one of Aruba's top beaches where snorkel equipment will also be provided. What makes this tour different is that it will not only be informative but it will be lots of fun with Caribbean music as you dance to Aruba’s top 2 carnival songs. You will surely leave this tour with a smile and a wonderful story to take back home. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included on this shared group tour.

What to Expect
Get picked up from your hotel or the cruise-ship port, board the vibrantly colored, open-air bus, and kick off your island sightseeing tour. Caribbean music greets you as your guide explains the role music plays on Aruba and teaches you a few funky dance moves. Begin your tour in Oranjestad as your guide shares the island’s history and points out important historic sites. Then make your way to top landmarks such as the Casibari Rock Formation, Natural Bridge, Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins, Alto Vista Chapel, and the California Lighthouse. At each key stop you have 15 to 20 minutes to snap some photos and enjoy the views. Next, enjoy an hour swimming and snorkeling at a beach on the southwest side of the island.

We enjoyed our tour and tour guide, "Jersey". Jersey was A1+++, above excellent. He was both knowledgeable and very personable. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer and we learned so much about Aruba and its history and culture. Highly recommend rockabeach tours.

Response from Andrea A, Owner at Colorful Beach Bus Sightseeing Tour of Aruba
Responded 2 Jul 2019
We are very sorry for any inconvenience. We have always worked hard to please our visitors and show them the best of our island, normally Jelle is a good and experienced tour guide with more then 10 years of experience and worked a long time with a big tour company on the island, we will speak to him to see what happened on that day and get to the bottom of this. We also thank you for your review and we will take action accordingly. Starting tomorrow we will have Michael Angelo back on 'The Colorful Beach Bus Sight Seeing Tour of Aruba. He worked last year with us and was one of the best tour guides we had, he is a very knowledgable, jolly, and experienced guide. We have definitely taken this review into consideration and will deal with this set back. We will continue to work hard to push back from this and do what we love which is to show our visitors a great time on the island while informing them of Aruba's beautiful land marks and history.

We were the only group besides another family with 2 young children. There were last minute rider cancellations and the scheduled driver called in sick so our guide was also last minute. He was clearly “suffering” as he admitted he’d been out the night before so that might’ve
