Great tour in Aruba
Oct. 2021
My wife and I took the Best of Aruba Sightseeing Tour by Fofoti Tours as an excursion on our one day in Aruba as part of our Royal Caribbean cruise. Our guide, Amin, did a terrific job and was very informative while maintaining a friendly sense of humor. We had a great time and would highly recommend this tour, especially if you're only going to be in Aruba a short time. A great way to get an overall picture of the island.

We saw Conchi, Baby beach, and Fontein Cave. It was a really great tour and Ernie was our driver. I got to snorkel and jump off the rocks into the natural pool. The road going there is super bumpy on any vehicle you take, but our truck had seat belts and ABC tours did not. This was the only tour that went to natural pool AND baby beach in the same trip. Fontein was very cool too because of the ancient drawings. We got a fish pedicure as well. Clean and safe.

Aruba Natural Wonders UTV Tour
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Me and my wife did the UTV natural wonders tour and had a fantastic time. The tour took us around the west side of the island to see places you cannot visit in a normal vehicle. We stopped at the Cave Pool (jumped off the cliff and swam: amazing), then the natural bridge, walked up the California lighthouse ($5 a piece: beautiful view), then finally spent some time at the Arashi public beach. It is well worth the $200 usd. Our tour guides Armin and Yadier were fantastic. Very nice and also hilarious. They took our photos and videos of us helping to create lasting memories. 10/10 recommend.

SO MUCH FUN!!
Jul. 2021
Dolfi Yadier was our guide and he was amazing. Best excursion my family and I have done in all the years we have been coming. Highly recommend, you get to go diving in caves and cliff jumping into the ocean, and zooming through the desert side of island. So much fun!! Definitely purchase the goggles and face mask, you'll regret it if you don't. Bring water shoes for diving in the cave and cliff jumping it makes walking on the rocks easier. Definitely try and make this apart of your trip here to Aruba you wont regret it!

Amazing Experience
Jul. 2021
We really wanted to tour the island on our honeymoon in Aruba. Our hotel's concierge recommended Fofoti Tours to us. The tour company picked us up right outside our hotel. We had two tour guides that were phenomenal. We traveled around Aruba by UTV following the guides one behind another. We started off on main roads and ended up driving through some rugged terrain to get to each stop. The guides explained the history of what happened at each landmark and kept us informed throughout the whole day. The tour ended up being longer than expected but it was well worth the money! We were able to see the natural beauty of Aruba by visiting the natural pools where we jumped off a cliff into one of the pools, the natural bridge, the California Lighthouse, and a white sandy public beach where we were able to put our mask and snorkel that we brought with us to good use. On the way back, we traveled by UTV on the main road through the high-rise area to get back to the tour office. We were brought back to our hotel by an air conditioned coach bus. It was a perfect day and the best way to see the island! We will definitely be using this tour company again on our next trip to Aruba!

Awesome experience
Jun. 2021 • Couples
The history of Aruba told by our guide Dolfi. Also the personal touch of a packed lunch on the beach, tour of the caves and the two bridges. My husband enjoyed driving the ATV. Dolfi was nice enough to go back and get my cap that had flew off. Dolfi was very up beat and knowledgeable. He was fantastic.
