This stop is included on many of the island tours, but you can tour it for free. You may be joined by large groups, but one of the tour guides was free between group tours and gave us a private tour of the factory. You can explore the little museum on your own, but it is worthwhile to have a... More

Longest stop on our bus tour and very informative. We had a tour guide outside to show us how the aloe is harvested and processed the old way then another guide took over and we toured a very up to date factory. The guide was very good at explaining all aspects of the process of the many products produced. There... More

Our tour guide, Sarah, did a phenominal job providing a personalized tour, answering all of our questions. I had no idea there was so much to know about aloe. The free museum and tour is great. Browsing the store after was good as well.

Free museum tour that is very interesting if you like to learn new and interesting facts. Full break down on how they make and distribute the aloe. Overall great tour that lasts about a half hour with free samples.

We weren't sure about this stop on our tour but came out pleasantly surprised with how much we learned and of course a few bottles of their products. You start the tour outside with a chance to see how they cut the plants and extract the gel. Inside you walk around the small production plant looking down into the various... More

I order Aruba Aloe on-line all of the time. Nice to see the facility where the product is made and history of Aloe. Great tour guide and love the gift shop. Picked up some stuff I can't get online.

I went there with my family. The museum and the tour was free. They picking Aloe on Tuesday or Wednesday. So you only see the factory producing live on that day. You should ask. After you can buy some expensive products. A short interesting tour.

It is a great place to buy pure aloe vera products. They offer host of different products made from aloe vera and they even grow aloe themselves.... It is one of the must visit place in Aruba.. They could do with a bit of cost cutting though...
