We are a family of four (children's ages 9 and 11). Our first time using a private local guide as well as our first time to Aruba. From first contact it was clear Joshua (Chicho) wanted to make this a great experience for us. He asked if we had any food allergies or physical limitations so he could custom design an itinerary. We are an active family and said we were up for hiking, swimming and local food. Wow, he exceeded expectations! He was energetic, great with our children, and extreamly knowledgable

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you guys!!! I was a pleasure. I wish the best for you guys and lots of success and happiness to you all. PS: success with the Hawaiian pineapple cowboying Every ;-)

The four of us travelling together were very pleased with the attentiveness that Joshua showed our group. He designed our day to get the most out of the time we had. He was able to get us to the highlighted areas on our itinerary before the crowds of people arrived on the buses. We would definitely recommend Joshua to anyone who is travelling to Aruba, along with our other Tours by Local Guides that we had the pleasure of spending the day with in Curacao and Limon, Costa Rica.

Joshua did an awesome job. He kept 2 teenage boys entertained and showed us beautiful high lights of the island we didn't see 2 years ago. Highly recommend!

We spent an amazing day with Chicho. A group of 4 adults and 2 kids we requested a custom tour highlighting hidden swimming holes and snorkeling. He was the perfect balance of knowledgable and "chill." The food we were introduced to was amazing. My 9 year-old son told me during the day that Chicho was so happy that he wanted to guide when he grew up too.
