Although you pay a lot for a short walking tour at this place, it is still worth it! I visited the site with my wife and four kids and my father. The tour started literally with a peacock greeting us right in the path with its plumage on full display and making its call. We then got to see emus and ostriches close up, and we got to feed them directly from our hands. We got to hold both emu and ostrich eggs. There are also other kinds of geese and chickens at the farm. Overall a unique experience that most people do not get to have every day! There is also a small restaurant on site.

It's OK to visit this farm for about 30 minutes. Because their fee was included in the price of my tour I found it reasonable, but for independent travellers their price is pretty stiff. Having visited an ostrich farm in South Africa I found this one less exciting.

We had a fun time last Sunday at the local Farmer's Market which is held on the first Sunday of every month from 10am to 2 pm. A lot of great local products and nice venders. Well worth the trip to and take the tour while you are there.

First of all I want to say that I’m really not happy with this whole setup. The ostriches are in small areas, sometimes alone. It’s very deceiving, I thought from pictures it looked like they could run around freely in a big open space but it’s not like that at all! ITS A ZOO FOR OSTRICHES! And I’m not at all okay with that, I thought it was more like a little sanctuary for them so you can imagine how upset I was when I saw how they actually lived. They had 5 babies in this TINY little area. It was very sad.
Now onto the actual tour.
I came here 5 minutes before a tour was due to start and that’s how long the lady at the gift shop/ticket office said. The tour guide arrived about 20 minutes later and told us it would be 10-15 minutes. So there was literally no point in me timing the visit for the tour as the guy just does them whenever the he hell he wants.
We went on the tour and oh my God, the guy was the most monotone, uncharismatic ‘tour guide’ I have ever met. I genuinely couldn’t understand half of what he said because he just mumbled everything.
He is the worst tour guide I’ve ever come across anywhere in the world. The tour was really short and really expensive ($14 per person). And then to top it all off he had the cheek to ask us for a tip even going as far as to say ‘we don’t have a tip bucket so you have to hand it to me’.
I honestly think that the only reason this place has good reviews is because it’s part of a package tour so it’s included in a lot of peoples itineraries but if you just come here on your own like we did then it’s a complete rip off. If you absolutely HAVE to come here then at least find the 20% off coupon from the I love Aruba booklet.

The farm offers tours with explanation of ostriches, opportunity for feeding them, and looking around. there is a small gift shop, bar with refreshments and restaurant that offers meals with ostrich eggs and others. Visitors have to be prepared to be in the sun while touring the place.

We came here as part of a Regent Cruise experience. The farm has about 8 ostriches and 3 or 4 Emus. The ostriches stole the show. We were able to feed one while holding a pan which they poked their heads in and cleaned the container in about 1 minute. I recommend it and I have some photos. Unfortunately the photo showing an ostrich eating out of the pan was too large to be accepted into the photos.

An aruba must do! The staff are very friendly and knowledgable. This tour is about 30 minutes but we learned so much about the ostriches. You get to feed them, which is also so fun! Don't wear loose clothing or hats - it is very windy and easy to lose a hat in the emu pens. Grab a beer for the walk! They serve lunch that also looked very interesting!

I had a really great time listening to our tour guide as she gave information about the animals. I learned a lot on the trip. I was most excited about being able to feed one as they are in my top five favorite animals. Some of the birds were in mating season so it was interesting to see how different they act because of that time.

This tour was lots of unexpected fun! It was part of another tour we were on and I would definitely try to go here if you can. Our tour guide, Pamela, was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the animals at the farm. You can tell they're very well cared for and loved. It was a great experience!

We weren't sure whether we had to make a reservation ahead of time so just showed up early. There was no one else there but tours were happening! We ended up getting basically our own personal tour. The guy was funny and told us a lot of fun facts about ostriches and emus. Feeding them is definitely a great photo opp. One of them almost snapped off the sunglasses on my head! Such a unique experience. You get to see ostriches at Phillips Animal Garden in Aruba but no one there to tell you more about them.

We had a day of exploring ahead of us so we also got lunch there. I was a bit nervous about their menu because nothing screamed "favorite" to me. I got the rib stew and it was AMAZING. Tasted so homemade and with the potatoes and sauce it was hard to compare to anything else we had in Aruba. Definitely recommend! Service was great - the people there are super nice. Eating area is big, outdoors, and shady/breezy.
