Esther was flexible due to problems with our cruise schedule. She was waiting when we docked and quickly had us on our way in her comfortable van. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our tour covered the whole island in 4 hours with stops whenever we wanted them or when she suggested them. All four of us agreed it was a wonderful tour and use of our cruise day. We had plenty of time left over for the beach or shopping.

We really enjoyed our day with Esther - since we came on a cruise ship we didn't have that much time. But she managed to show us all the different sides of her beautiful home Aruba - there is so much to explore! Esther is very friendly, reliable and flexible. You can't go wrong booking a tour with her - you will have a great time and see much more than other travelers :)

We had a great tour on Aruba with Esther, who drove us round the island showed us the interesting sites, the rock formations, the rough side, the beautiful beaches, the bridge over the water, the big hotels and restaurants. Her English was very good and we had an interesting conversation on the history of the island. Thanks for a great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you , thank you for my 5 stars Peter and Leslie all the best with your world cruise.

Esther was an accomplished person well-prior to guiding tours; and is personable and smart as heck. Her father was instrumental in WW2 era Aruban history. Esther was a flight attendant when that position was beyond difficult to attain. She took us wherever we wanted to go and knew everything about all of them. We tipped her a lot, but it was not enough. Book her.

We chose Esther to be our tour guide of Aruba and we were very happy that we did! She provided an excellent overview of the island as we explored most areas of Aruba. She was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. The 4 hours disappeared too quickly as we enjoyed the time we spent with her. It felt like we were being shown the beautiful island of Aruba by an "old" friend. We highly recommend touring with Esther!!

(late post) Took the tour with Esther last month and it was great; Esther is an excellent tour guide! She is prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable about the island. On the tour we were able to stop and take pictures or look around some places longer than others if we wanted. We learned a lot about Aruba from our conversations with her and she made the tour worthwhile. I highly recommend booking Esther for your tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Teletha and Tiffany, thank you, thank you for the wonderful words. People like make me proud to show my island Aruba. Hope to see you back soon in Aruba. Enjoy life , Esther.

Esther was great. She was responsive on emails before the tour, and looked after us well during the tour. She even drove her own car to get us to our cruise port as she has a permit to do so. It was nice having Esther show us Aruba.

Esther was great, picked us up right at our hotel and spent the day showing us around the island. She customized the tour to places we wanted to see and added in other places. Very knowledgeable as she is a native and knew the history of the island and many towns as we drove through. Recommended a great place for lunch right on the water with fresh catches and cold beers. We will definitely recommend Esther to our friends and look her up next time we come back.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, thank you for the wonderfull words, people like you make proud to show my island. Hugh and Karen I hope to see soon back in Aruba.

I cannot give Esther 5 stars, I want to give her 10. Her tour was beyond outstanding, it was just a dream come true. My daughter and I felt we were in the company of family. I wish it could have gone on longer. I would recommend her to anyone, we saw things the normal tourist would not see, her knowledge of the island is fantastic. I can't even begin to say how awesome she was, if we ever get back to Aruba, she will be my choice of tour guides. Thank you again Esther, we love you.

We found Esther to be very professional and knowledgable. We would rate her a five out of five. When I made a mistake in our booking, she was very responsive and helped me right away. We certainly learned lot about Aruba which has added to the enjoyment of our stay.
