Thank you for visiting ToursByLocals, who are providing the best qualified Tour Guides our island has to offer.
A little bit of myself, I am an ABC-islander, after being born and raised in Curacao till my teens, I moved to Aruba and have been living and enjoying here ever since. Not forgetting our family roots in Bonaire, where I frequently visit
Having these deep Caribbean roots, it will be my utmost pleasure hosting you and exploring with you the Island's top and best kept secrets, while having the best of times.
Ban Goza!!! which means in our Native language of Papiamento, Come and Let's have some fun!!
Since adolescence I've worked in the tourism and hospitality industry of Aruba. Starting at the age of 18 as an entertainer at several Resorts and Later as the Recreations Manager at the Radisson, which later became Hilton Aruba. There I worked from 2010 till 2016.
my focus was to best serve our guests who became friends and along the years became like family. I love Aruba and wanted my dear friends to experience Aruba like we do so I would take them to places where the locals hang out Up to this day I still have contact with most of them
making the step to become and official Tour Guide was a call after having served the Tourism Industry for 21 years in 2017 I have started a shuttle services, day tours for (cruiseship) tourists, repeat guests and tailor made services.
I drive an 11-passenger Hyundai bus. I have all the network which makes shuttle services for much bigger groups (approx. . 60 passengers).
