Shurby R.

Noord, Aruba

Hello my name is Shurby and I would like to say Bon Bini!

(welcome in Papiamento) to my link with ToursByLocals.
. As a former Merchant Navy Captain I sailed for 25 years all over the seas in this world. This experience gave me a good insight as to what the world has to offer and made me appreciate my birth island all the more. I do hope that I will have the opportunity to show you around this Happy island. Even as child I I used to travel on all of the roads of Aruba together with my father in his pick-up. This left me with an intimate knowledge of the island and it's lesser known highlights. As a child my parents took us abroad quite often to Europe and elsewhere. This again gave me a good ideat of what the world can offer and of course Aruba. Please come and be my guest and allow me show you around Aruba. As one of the very few guides with full security clearance of the cruise terminal, I can pick you up inside the terminal building near your ship, or at your local address and from there we can proceed to experience rhe beauty of this wonderful island.

We loved our tour with Shurby. He showed us places we would not have seen with a big tour group!

Having travelled all over the world as a merchant navy captain for many years, I learnt to appreciate the splendour of my birth island as well as it's natural beauty. Please do come and visit the happy island and let me show you around. As we say here Bon Bini! which means Welcome!
My vehicle is a 2017 air-conditioned Hyundai H1 van for maximum 7 persons, For parties up to 5 persons, all passengers will have their own window during their tour. I have T and O license plates officially recognised by the Government of Aruba and I am one of the few guides that has full security clearance to be able to pick you up and drop you off in the cruise terminal area!


I do not take tours to the Natural Pool, as the road is too rough for my vehicle. There are specialised companies going there.
