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.

Wow! We did a half an hour tour at the farm and my son and me really enjoyed this experience. The host give us a detailed in depth overview of the life of an ostrich. We fed ostriches. I pet ostriches. It was one of the best farms that we have ever visited. I would say put it on the top of your list while at Aruba.

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 greatly enjoyed the guided tour of the farm. There are lots of great photo ops. Harold was a friendly and knowledgeable guide. Plus, we came on the first Sunday of the month and enjoyed a local artisan craft fair. No time for lunch but we hear it is worth returning to eat! One disappointment was the closed gift shop (maybe due to the craft fair?) but we’ve made a plan to return to shop. All in all definitely worth it. Wear a hat, ostriches have no use for shaded spots!
