    What to Expect
    Join a passionate guide for a fun-filled tour that shows you the rich culture, history, and cuisine to be discovered in Aruba's capital city. Stroll around downtown Oranjestad to scope out centuries-old landmarks, visit the Archeological Museum, peruse artisan crafts, and snack on local bites.

    Get picked up, or meet your guide by the Cosecha building to begin your stroll. Pay a visit to the 18th-century military fortifications built by the Dutch army at Fort Zoutman, check out the city's oldest statue, and pose for a photo in front of the famous "I Love Aruba" sign.

    Uncover more of the city's past as you step inside a 200-year-old house, and then browse the exhibits of the National Archaeological Museum, which houses over 10,000 artifacts amassed from the island's 5,000-year history. Also, stop at City Hall to admire its Dutch architecture, painted in striking contrasts of white and green.

    Along the way, your guide shows you the city's hidden gems, leading you to prime spots to discover traditional crafts, try tasty Aruban snacks, and chat with locals. Bite into a cheese- or meat-filled_pastechi, a classic Caribbean stuffed pastry, and nibble on the savory, pancake-like pan bati_. Leave your tour with a deeper appreciation for Aruba's heritage, ready for more exploring on your own
