The best part of this trip was our driver. The excursion went to the California Lighthouse and then Mooma beach. We had seen the lighthouse before. The beach was terribly crowded and there was very little shade for those of us who don't lay out in the sun. I would not do this again.

Loved this. Al our driver/guide was terrific and made it fun. He was very informative, funny and took great care of us. We did the tour, then a couple of hours at the beach and then back to port. On the way back it was the party bus - we had maracas, music and Al leading us. Definitely recommend this... More

We took the banana bus to Palm Beach. Albert, our driver gave many reasons to come back to Aruba! He also provided a lot of great island info. The best part of the ride was the trip back with music!! 🌴🎤

We booked the Banana Bus to take our group of 17 to the Jolly Pirates dock and back to the hotel. The $200 minimum was steep, but we were excited about having a party bus. We had email confirmation and booked them 11 days ago. They no-showed us tonight. When I called, I was told they forgot us. They didn't... More

Very affordable tour, great way to see the island. Walked off the cruise ship, got the Big Banana bus. Made stop at Rock Garden, Lighthouse then 1-2 hour beach break before heading back to the ship. Great value. What made the tour even better was the driver. He was fun, engaging and really took the time to show off the... More

Open bus, excellent in the tropical heat, the guide is friendly and the explanations in English, the places are really amazing and the views of the beach are breathtaking. We'll go back!

Our Thomson Cruise stopped in Aruba in the beginning of Feb, and we decided we wanted to do a tour of the island. As we got off the ship there was loads of people trying to sell their tours, but we had spotted the Banana Bus, and knew that was the one! Our driver was Albert and he was brilliant!... More

My husband and I were cruising through the ABC islands last month, first time to Aruba etc. We didnt book any excursions on Aruba, just got off the ship and walked out to the taxi area.
