I bought Aruba Aloe products at Ling & Son's & the store at the Renaissance Mall. The Desert Bloom lotion makes my skin sooooo soft and it has healed mosquito bites (from Texas, not Aruba). Great products.

We stopped in at the Aloe Tour because it seemed like it would be interesting to learn about Aloe. The tour is free but you can give a donation. The tour guide said we can wait in the museum and look around by the time she came we kind learned about the history of Aloe in Aruba by the time... More

I took a tour of the Aruba Aloe Factory. It was very interesting to learn the history of aloe and how the different products are made. The tour was FREE but you could make a donation if you wanted. I chose to make my donation at the store. The products in the factory store come with a coupon so that... More

Our tour guide was very informative. My friend and I were lucky enough to have a private tour and he was able to answer all our questions without rushing us through the tour. We learned many uses of aloe that we had not known before. While on the island many products were purchased - happy with all, the after sun... More

For those who like factory tours, it was fun to see how they harvest aloe and produce their products. Prices are kind of high, but I'm not a woman so....

This was a unique experience to do in Aruba. It was a very cool tour of the aloe factory, with shopping in the store afterwards. Nice place to visit.

This was a great tour. The tour of the factory was free. We saw the people actually cutting the aloe branches and peeling the aloe out and then we saw the final product. It was amazing. The aloe is very pricey to me - $21. for a small bottle of lotion, but when you see the process it helps you... More

The museum and factory are pretty small. But the tour and all the information in the museum was interesting. Learned things I never knew about the plant and products. The store is a little pricy and you kind of feel obligated to buy. Prices are standardized in all the Aruba Aloe stores, so you can buy anywhere on the island.... More

Very interesting to see the way the Aloe plants are handled to make all the different products shipped to the whole world. The story about the Aloe is also very well explained in movie and pictures. Worth the visit! You pay for the view, but you can come again and visit to observe further kinds of work with the Aloe!... More

Well worth spending half hour to take the tour. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. It was very interesting learning a little bit more about Aruba's history. The products are lovely to use and not expensive. I live in Aruba but took my friend who is here on holiday and she enjoyed this tour very much.
