After arriving in a new country, one of the easiest ways to get acquainted with your surroundings is to take a tour. Tours of Aruba come in all shapes and sizes and travel over ground, into the ocean, and even into the sky. Choose your favorite method of travel and get your Aruba sightseeing done in style, and with a professional guide to make sure you don't miss any of the good stuff.
One of the most exciting ways to see any scenery, let
alone the gorgeous blue oceans and rugged terrain of Aruba,
is by helicopter. Aruba helicopter tours are available
out of Oranjestad and travel
over the many different types of terrain on the island--land
and sea. See the shipwrecked Antilla (a German frieghter
wrecked in WWII) from the air, or fly over many popular
sites along the beaches and
on ground, including the Alto
Vista Chapel and the Natural Pool. To really spice
up your stay on the island, why not try getting to dinner
via Aruba helicopter tours? Some companies also offer
smaller personal tours like this. If your itinerary includes
other islands as well, many other Caribbean islands have helicopter tours, too, including Antigua, St. Lucia, and the Grand Caymans.
While it might seem that tours of Aruba can't
get better than taking a helicopter, other modes of transportation have their time in the sun as well. Much of the island
is covered in rough terrain and hard to travel roads so
jeep tours are also popular. Most tours by jeep travel
in caravans and often include lunch or a snorkeling side
trip. Even off-road monster truck tours can be found for
anyone really seeking a rush. Another option for over-ground
tours of Aruba are bus tours. Some Aruba bus tours take
groups around the island, including dinner, and then off
to a bar hop in the evening, while other companies offer
more standard Aruba bus tours of specific attractions or areas of the island.
Aruba tours also go by sea, both above and below water.
Dinner cruises and sailboat tours are popular romantic
tour methods and often sailboats and dinner cruises will
operate during Aruba's amazingly colorful sunset. Actual
submarine tours are an excellent way to check out the
amazing sea life around the island without worrying about
learning to snorkel or scuba. Some companies offer other
creative ways to go under water in vehicles or space-suit-like
aparati that keep you dry and comfortable and breathing.
Whatever you can imagine is probably available from one
of the Aruba tour companies on the island. Ask at your
hotel information desk for more details.
Whether you're after Aruba helicopter tours, Aruba bus tours, or any other way to get around and get to know this small but interesting island, Aruba has something that will appeal to you.
