Owner description: Persistence and determination, combined with one really great idea, has paid off for Marvin and Sharla Kelly, the energetic husband and wife team behind ABC Tours. Using their Aruban know-how and instinctive talent for hospitality, they were able to take their company from what was a modest one-jeep enterprise in 1998, to the dynamic tour company it is today. The ABC family has also grown to include several proficient guides that love their work as much as Marvin and Sharla. Native-born Aruban Tour Guides and friendly sales representatives- form the talented team that helped ABC become the #1 tour operator and win the coveted "Tour of the Year" Award from Princess Cruise Lines. ABC Tours has been providing the most talked-about off-road adventures on Aruba. Their action-packed and a "must" while on the island. You'll experience Aruba's amazing wild side and hidden treasures. Take turns driving or enjoy the ride - the choice is yours!

My son and I went to Aruba for his 21st birthday. it was a great trip. I have to say the very best part was the ABC adventure safari tour. Eduardo is a blast. he made the whole tour worth it. he is knowledgeable and friendly. has a great sense of humor and did everything right to make it a great day. I spent the next two days telling every one we saw there to go do the tour and ask to have Eduardo as the guide. this is truly a great time.

This was our first time in Aruba and my wife and I were referred to ABC Jeep tours by the concierge at our Hotel. At first I was a little hesitant due to the all day tour and the amount charged per couple, but let me say that this was the second best decision we made (first was going to Aruba). Not only were Jelle and Joel insightful and funny guides but they were determined to make sure everyone had a great time. I highly recommend this tour it is worth every penny plus a few (tips), and if you have a chance to drive a Jeep take it because the "roads" to the natural pool are awesome!! Again Jelle thank you for our tour.

We had Ron, Hugo and Joel as our tour guides on the 1/2 day natural pool excursion and they made the tour! They are so funny and friendly, they are what makes the tour so enjoyable! This was a really good time because you get to see a bunch of different places, we went to the natural and baby bridge, the gold mine ruins, black rock beach the natural pool and some other places. It was such a great time, I think next time we will try the full day tour because these guys are awesome!!

We had a great time in the sun seeing the many sights in Aruba. We took the 1/2 day tour and found it just right for our 7 year old. He especially enjoyed the bumpy ride over the rocks, but his parent in the back held on for the ride. Captain Ron and "Jowell" did a great job explaining the history of the island and taking us on breathtaking views of North coast of Aruba.

Our first time to Aruba, and we wanted to get a survey of the island. The All-Day tour did not let us down. We can't say enough about our guide, Jelle. He kept a good pace, never making us feel rushed, and provided a good balance of humor, history and fun facts about Aruba. The complete tour guide.

The sites we visited were beautiful, and told a rich story of the island. There was plenty of time spent on U-do-it activities, highlighted by two snorkeling adventures, plus ostrich feeding, and the (individually optional) cave tour. There were many other sites of beauty and interest on the tour, along with an indoor sit-down, hot lunch.

As part of the All-Day tour, our trip to the Natural Pool in the National Park required a bouncy ride in the 4x4. The payoff was great; however, if you choose a shorter tour, without this, you might keep Baby Beach so you can still have that excellent snorkeling adventure.

Way Cool!
