The Aloe Factory gives a nice tour every 15 minutes or so. It is free, short, and simple. You learn all about the history and see the factory. I definitely learned a lot about Aloe that I never knew. While you are waiting for the tour to start there are restrooms and a history/museum section which was interesting to read.... More

It was very nice. The tour was very interesting. we liked it a lot. You are not allowed to take pictures during the tour inside. The store is nice but be prepared to spend a lot of money. Otherwise, We liked the aloe factory a lot.

This was my 2nd visit to Aruba Aloe and my friend's 1st. Learn about the history of aloe cultivation and processing and if you're lucky, watch the process on site. I thought perhaps the products would be cheaper at the plant, but in fact one product I purchased was the same price as at the Hyatt.

Surprisingly a very interesting tour of the aloe factory. Personally I use the product but actually discovered new products that I also purchased. You are not allowed to take pictures so I wish they would have sold postcards. I would recommend this tour just to learn something new.

Went here on a tour of the island. A demonstration was given outside of how the aloe is cut and split to make the products. This part was interesting. Everyone got to feel a piece of the aloe once the skin was peeled off. Inside we went on the factory tour. Nothing was going on even though it was the... More

If you haven't tried Aruba aloe products they are a must during your visit and the factory tour and museum are quick and informative. Be sure to join their mailing list for online ordering. Prices are reasonable for such a great skin care product. Once you try Aruba aloe you will become a fan.

This was a stop on a 3 hour bus tour. Given the time frame (about 20 minutes) we were stopped, we saw and heard quite a lot of different things about this non-indigenous plant (on a Natural Wonders of Aruba Tour). Aloe has some great healing, health properties and the walk through of the factory was interesting as was the... More

This was the obligatory shopping stop on our Aruba tour from our cruise ship. The factory tour was interesting but took just a few minutes. The museum was small but interesting. Natiral products were premium priced as one would expect with such a tour

Love the products and finally took the tour. Great tour guide and was very informative from the plant to preparation to production. the museum provided a great historical perspective. An incredible company and products for the limited number of employees. Well with the visit.
