Educational and interesting tour.
Mar 2021
It was fun and educational to see how organisations help animals around and on the island.

We fed the donkey's in the infirmary we hope this will speed up their recovery. The visit to the oastritch farm is really something you do not want to miss out on. The guide it self had a funny and understandable way of explaining the birds, even the kids understood her and she did fun around with them making it really interactive and educational for them.

We got a pick-up and drop-off by driver and he also helped out during the tours providing some additional background information. During our visit at Philip's Animal Garden he even arranged some extra carrots for us to feed the animals and he gave us a small very private tour and told us a bit about these animals on the island.

We had an awesome time on this tour. Feeding the donkeys and goats was a lot of fun, and there are a lot of animals at the zoo as well. Nano was our guide and was very friendly and helpful. He did a tremendous job.

Half-Day Animal Sanctuary Tour in Aruba

Aruba

We wanted to find something other than the beach all week. I researched on Trip advisor and this particular tour got good reviews. I emailed the company booked the tour the day after we arrived. We were so glad we went. The tour guide Jason he was awsome sauce. We went to Phillips Animal sanctury first. I got to see and feed a camel, rabbits and various other animals in the sanctuary. The best part for me personally, was I got to feed the peacocks( it is my favorite bird) this was a bucket list moment for me. Then we went to the Ostrich Farm I got a chance to see some ostrich porn and feed the ostrishes and see emus. The last stop was the Donkey Sanctuary. The donkeys were friendly & sweet and they all had their own personality.
The only bad thing was the rude husband and wife from Chicago during the whole tour was politics everything and had to listen to how other countries do everything better than the one they choose to live and work in. You can't control who is on the tour with you. And we didn't let it ruin this awesome tour. Overall I would highly reccomend this tour if you want to do something ther than the beach. By the way this tour is only offered on Saturdays which was great for us. The tour guide Jason also told us about other tours they offered and we booked the half day tour of Aruba a few days later(see my review)

Get up close to very cute donkeys
Nov 2020
The people of Aruba take very good care of the animals, and it was great to see that. My wife and I like animals and always like to get close up encounters. This is the place to see and feed and pet the donkeys.....we loved it.

Great day
This tour was so much fun. Our tour driver was very nice and had lots of facts about each place, in addition to the guides each stop. The donkeys are adorable and you can feed kitties there too. The guides there are volunteers who really care about the animals. The ostriches are HUGE and you get to take a pic feeding them, which is quite the experience. Our guide was a story fun Dutch woman who shared all kinds of fun facts about the animals. Last up was Phillips. So many animals to see there and there were many babies this time of year. Overall it was a great day. Highly recommend.

Heartwarming Experience
Sep 2020
The visit to Aruba Donkey Sanctuary made our trip to Aruba (in a middle of pandemic) worth while. Donkeys are interesting animals you don't see everyday. We were happy to have a chance to feed and interact with them. This was a heart warming moment! Animals do bring out the best in people. The sanctuary is operated by volunteers for the most part and rely on private donations. I'd like to come back here when I'm in Aruba next time.

A Must Tour for Animal Lovers
Feb 2020 • Family
This tour made our trip! We got picked up from our hotel and started at the Donkey Sanctuary. My daughter was over joyed to feed and hug donkeys and bought a stuffed animal. At the ostrich farm we learned so much! Again we got to feed them and also saw Emu’s. Phillip’s Farm had for many animals! Try to bring bananas, nothing was cuter then handing a monkey a banana. We also got to see the gold mine ruins because we had extra time, that was a great perk. Thank you so much for making this trip happen, it was spectacular.
