We took the banana bus to Palm Beach. Albert, our driver gave many reasons to come back to Aruba! He also provided a lot of great island info. The best part of the ride was the trip back with music!! 🌴🎤

We booked the Banana Bus to take our group of 17 to the Jolly Pirates dock and back to the hotel. The $200 minimum was steep, but we were excited about having a party bus. We had email confirmation and booked them 11 days ago. They no-showed us tonight. When I called, I was told they forgot us. They didn't... More

Great value. What made the tour even better was the driver. He was fun, engaging and really took the time to show off the... More

Open bus, excellent in the tropical heat, the guide is friendly and the explanations in English, the places are really amazing and the views of the beach are breathtaking. We'll go back!

Our Thomson Cruise stopped in Aruba in the beginning of Feb, and we decided we wanted to do a tour of the island. As we got off the ship there was loads of people trying to sell their tours, but we had spotted the Banana Bus, and knew that was the one! Our driver was Albert and he was brilliant!... More

My husband and I were cruising through the ABC islands last month, first time to Aruba etc. We didnt book any excursions on Aruba, just got off the ship and walked out to the taxi area. We lucked out, picked an open air bus with a great big banana on top! Our driver was funny, charming, and knowledgeable. We ended... More

I have been in contact with a man from this company for over 3 months booking a tour for a group of friends (14 altogether) arriving on a cruise. He assured me that he would be able to do the tour and asked me to contact him after the Holidays. I did, with confirming information about what we had talked... More
