    Great Adventure
    Took a cab to and from the Ostrich Farm today and it was a Great Adventure! The guided tour through the farm was informative but the real fun began when you get to feed them! Each of us feed two ostriches - one on either side. It's fun and surreal. As for the baby ostriches...they eat out of your hand! While the ostriches and emus are behind fences...Peacocks are strolling free looking for attention. My favorite was the peacock with the little babies. Look closing around and you may find an ostrich feather! All in all it was a delightful morning. A tip for those of you staying on the island...check the cruise ship schedule. We went when there were no cruise ships docked for a more intimate time. We also took a cab there and back. The cab driver was really nice and stayed while were toured. Admission was $15 each and with the round trip cab ride included, it was less than buying a tour ticket.

    So much fun feeding the ostriches!
    The ostrich farm was so much fun! We decided that the ostriches are basically like Disney snakes with big bodies. We really enjoyed feeding and learning more about the ostriches and emus. There was also a local market onsite when we went which was a nice added touch. Highly recommend a visit if you’re on Aruba!!!

    Amazing experience
    This was a highlight of my trip! I learned so much about this animal while having an amazing experience. The animals are well kept and you can tell they respect their trainer. Please don't let the comments about the trainer and tour guide alarm you. He was full of charisma and dry humor. He did ask for a tip at the end but very politely after giving us an experience of a lifetime.

    Ostrich Farm Tour
    We took the Ostrich farm tour, and while it was a bit overpriced for a 20-30 minute tour, we thought it was worth it. It is very unique and I've never had an opportunity to be so close to these animals before. We even saw two of them mating, which is well up there on the "random stuff we've seen" list. During the tour, each person gets to feed the ostriches by hand, which is an admittedly terrifying but unforgettable experience. The ostriches are NOT gentle and it is a bit painful when they peck the food from your hand, but they don't actually injure you. Needless to say, we got some awesome video footage to bring home! I noticed some negative comments about the guide, whose name I cannot remember. He is definitely a bit dry, but seemed like a nice enough guy and was happy to answer questions. Definitely check this place out if you're looking to get very up close and personal with these birds.

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.

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.

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.

We felt this place was a tourist trap - expensive for about a 20 minute tour. If you have never seen an Ostrich before maybe it's worth it, but our tour guide provided minimum information, awkwardly requested a tip (on top of the admission price), and the worst was that one Ostrich was bleeding. One person on our tour who fed the Ostrich ended up with blood all over his hands - very unsafe and raises the question as to how well these animals are cared for.

Great nature activity and good for animal lovers. This is my 7th time to Aruba and I am always looking for new things. I never heard about the Ostrich Farm and I was told they have been running this for 18 years. I really liked learning about ostriches and emus. This is a very brief tour and you can not stroll on your own because I suspect the ostriches could attack individuals if they get in their way. We know humans don't follow the rules. I was disappointed that there were no babies.

Thank you for your review and nice to read that you enjoyed the tour. And you are right about the safety reason why we don't allow people walk in the park on their own. With Ostriches weighting up to 350 lbs and are 7 feet tall need to be respected and handled with care.

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.

I learned a lot about ostriches (and emu) although admittedly I did not know much.
It was a lot of fun feeding the ostriches. The only reason for the 4 instead of 5 stars is that the tour guide made us and other guests visibly uncomfortable. I believe he was honestly trying to be sarcastically funny but made people feel as though they were asking unintelligent questions which resulted in an abrupt end to the question session at the end of the tour. Perhaps upon reading this review they can make the simple adjustment to down play the sarcasm which will make this a 5 star experience. On the other hand the individual working in the gift shop and selling passes for the tour was delightful.

The farm is cute. We paid extra to feed the ostriches the entire tour. The guide didn't like that I didn't laugh at his jokes (which was very sexist and rude) and basically WOULD NOT give us any food! All we had were the two plates that we paid extra for. He almost yelled at me at one point because he took my plate forcefully and I said please dont touch me.
He's rude, I'll mannered and has horrible customer service.

Unfortunately I don't recommend you visit this place because it's not worth the poor treatment.

Sad to read your review. I appreciate all comments good and bad. We try to do our best to acknowledge mistakes we made however I can't agree on your review since it is not exactly how things happend. Other guest in the tour came to apologies for you and said to us that they admire our patients. According the the other guests 1. The guide was not sexist nor rude. You argued with him while he was trying to explain you his intention on how to feed the ostriches but you did not want to hear any of it and just do it your own way. 2.He asked from your to give hime the two empty bowls to him so he can carry it back to the store. He had never the intention to pull it from you. I think this was due to misunderstanding from your side that since you paid for the two bowl with feed you had to bring it back your self to the shop. We will be more clear in the future to explain when we offer guest to bring the bowl back for them 3. The joke you are referring to as sexist "He, mama are you hungry" was a joke due to you holding two big bowls of ostrich feed. I asked the guide to leave that comment out even dough nothing mean was ment with it.
