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.

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.

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.

Esther was a wonderful guide, whose pride in her country shined thru out the day. I loved the sites, history and antidotes she shared with us. I liked her flexibility-like stopping at Dunkin Donuts for our daughter. Our daughter is fascinated by US companies in other countries and how the are the same or different than what she is used too. The only negative is ours-FYI-if you are coming on a cruise--make sure you sign up for the proper time. We were on ships time, not Ester's time. It worked out.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Larry thank you, thank you for my 5 start.I had a wonderfull day too with you all. The best thing is,you loved my island . Say Hi to your wife and daugher and see you soon back In Aruba. Greetings, Esther.

Esther was awesome with the tour. She had great knowledge of the island and it's culture. She told us where to snorkel as this was one thing we wanted to do and needed easy access to the water. Days to Avoid was key as cruise ships are in town several days and it would be less crowded. This was right on. She stopped for some pictures taking along The way. Highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jean, thank you , thank you for my 5 stars, people like you make my proud to show my island. See you soon back in Aruba. Greetings, Esther.

Esther was engaging, enthusiastic and just fun to be with. We have never been to Aruba, so Esther drove us around the island, giving us a real feel for the place. We were not interested in seeing the touristy shopping areas or casino hotels, so Esther showed us the natural beauty of the island. She was a pleasure.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Joanie and John, thank you, thank you for My 5 stars.I do hope you enjoyed your staying in Aruba. It was a pleasure for my to show you my happy island.. Will rember you allways, Esther.

I highly recommend using Esther as your tour guide! Born in Aruba, she speaks English, Dutch, Spanish and the local Papiamento, is very knowledgeable, super friendly, and comfortable to be with. She can adjust the tour to your needs. My husband and I honeymooned in Aruba 40 yrs ago and returned to see how it has changed. She gave us a wonderful tour and very informative summary of what's been happening. This little island has really grown, but still has lots of gorgeous resorts and pristine beaches.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Andi, thank you, thank you for everything that you told about me. People like you make my fell proud to show Aruba. See you soon back in Aruba, Esther.

Esther was amazing. We met in the hotel lobby. It was a laugh ever minute. She told wonderful funny stories. She had a firm grasp of the island history and culture. We had an amazing lunch at a local restaurant (where the locals eat). We saw a lot of sites and history. She went above and beyond to make our experience unforgettable..... thank you Esther

We loved our private tour of the island and would recommend it highly to anyone thinking about taking a tour. We were here during the off season but the other tours we saw still had people packed in like sardines. We had a very comfortable ride. You can tell the guide what you want to see! Try to get Esther Ranis as your guide. You won't be disappointed! She was awesome and knows so much about the islands history! We loved her and you will too! Enjoy your time on the island more with a tour by a local!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: George,thank you thank you, people like you make me proud to show of my island. Hope to see you soon back in Aruba.

Esther is absolutely delightful! The tour of the island was comprehensive and fascinating. It was equally interesting to learn about the people and cultures of the ABC islands. Esther's sense of humor and cheerfulness matched the beauty of her happy island!
