We visited Aruba on a cruise. 4 of us booked this tour because it just seemed fun! We were right! We had a fantastic guide, Gerrt, and got to see a lot of the landscape of Aruba. He was very knowledgeable about the island and history and just fun to talk to. We all had a ball and would recommend... More

Awesome ATV tour! My husband and I booked a tour on our honeymoon. We ended up being the only one who signed up for that tour on that day so we got a private tour with Geert who was a great guide. We got to see great parts of Aruba that you wouldn't get to see if you stayed near... More

We chose to do the #7 for a 2.5hr ride through northern Aruba and along the beach. It was a great way to start the day and since no one else was signed up, it ended up as a private ride! The horses were very agile and enthusiastic but also responded well to directional commands. Our guide, Max, was friendly... More

I had such a great experience on this tour! I was picked up and dropped off right on time at my condo by a nice driver. The tour guide Daniel was really friendly and provided a lot of interesting information about the horses and Aruba. It was great to ride through the desert-like areas as well as the coast and...

We splurged on doing a private tour since it was my birthday and we wanted a nice quite romantic outing. Daniel, our guide, did an excellent job. He was very friendly, fun, and patient (I hadn't been on a horse in 25+ years, and my husband had never ridden before). Daniel took us through some beautiful areas and along some... More

Horses seemed well taken care of. One of our party is experienced Paso Fino rider and was not happy with the gate of the horse. The saddle seemed too small for a couple of us. We would have like to have ridden along the beach. Our guide Daniel was very nice, spoke 4 languages so he was easy to talk... More

We wanted to go to Natural Pool and the tour that stopped there didn't have another exciting stops, so the lady at the office suggested a private tour so we can see more things. Well, Natural Pool stop didn't happen because our guide decided to show us his favorite stops and not what we wanted. And when I told him... More

The last two days in aruba we went quading with rancho and Geert. It was the best part of our trip! Geert was very knowledgeable, and taught us a lot. We saw the entire island in two days. Thanks for the great trip!

My husband and I went on an atv tour and scheduled the 9am tour on Monday morning. We were the only ones on this tour so it was very nice to have our own "private" outting. Our guide, Geerd, was amazing! He took us to all his favorite spots which were unpopulated and you couldn't get there by tour bus.... More
