Hi. I had a family of 14 people from Australia book the Banana Bus all to ourselves one day a few weeks back when our ship was in port. We decided to do this rather than using a cruise ship tour. We had a really great day. Lots of beer and sodas on board. We visited all the key sites,... More

Overall not a bad evening with music and dancing, however one major flaw. When you are a captive audience ( taken to various bars ), I have a problem when the bars in question serve sub standard drinks, and then charge the earth for same. $60 for 6 vodkas is very expensive in my book, there is no need to...

I didn't realize our bus tour was an attraction. We got off our ship and were greeted by multiple tour companies from skeevy to pretty upscale. We chose the Banana Bus because it was too cool. Were taken past a lot of the highlights in the downtown area and visited the rock formations, the chapel, the lighthouse, etc. and saw... More

What an enjoyable crazy funny ride. These guys do have fun, give you a good tour of Aruba with three stops, then drop you off on the beach for a couple of hours and pick you up later for a ride back to the cruise terminal. Just look at the pictures and you can feel the craziness. It was great... More

We loved touring Aruba on a recent visit via cruise ship, and our stop was made even better on the Banana Bus! Our tour guide and driver, Albert, was EXCEPTIONAL. Not only was it a great learning experience about the history and current events in Aruba, it was a whole lot of fun! We had a great snorkeling experience after... More

We visited Aruba many times in the past, but tis time we took a tour with this bus. Its fun and strange, but in the end of our tour the driver left us to see the Mercado flotante. Its a floating market on the sea. You can find many kind of tropical fruits and veggies, fish, cheese and other south... More

We were recently in Aruba on the Carnival Dream. During our pre-cruise research I found the Banana Bus company and contacted Bert through e-mail. He was quick to get back to me. We agreed on a 3 hour tour that stopped at the Casi Bari Rock Formations, Alto Vista Chapel, California Lighthouse, and then a stop at Palm Beach. Our... More

We tried to book the Banana bus but they did not answer the emails so we booked with Viator and had a really good tour and time at the beach.
