Aruba was a port stop on our recent cruise. Since we had never been there, I had already planned to take a tour and spend a few hours at the beach. We got off the ship and decided... read 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. We lucked out, picked an open air bus with a great big banana on top! Our driver was funny, charming, and knowledgeable. We ended... More

Enjoyed our tour on the Banana Bus. Very accommodating. Gave you plenty of time at each of the attractions and explained the culture and sights.

I have been in contact with a man from this company for over 3 months booking a tour for a group of friends (14 altogether) arriving on a cruise. He assured me that he would be able to do the tour and asked me to contact him after the Holidays. I did, with confirming information about what we had talked... More

Albert did an excellent job driving and narrating a 2 1/2 hr. tour around the island of Aruba. The tour price also included a drop off of 2 hours at Palm Beach. The Banana Bus then picks you up and takes you back to the cruise ship. I was so happy that I waited to book a tour at the... More

Save your money on ship excursions and take the banana bus around Aruba, for $20 per person it is the most entertaining and informative tour. Loved every minute if it, bus can be found at pier when you get off the ship. Highly recommend !

Great way to tour the island. School bus with no windows to let the breeze in. Driver was very knowledgeable and very funny. This tour is much cheaper than if you use the Carnival Excursion but they got us back in plenty of time. Actually stopped at different locations on the way back for those that wanted to shop or...

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
