We just returned from Aruba and did the UTV half day tour with Amin and Patrick. I felt the whole experience was excellent. Amin is super engaging and entertaining, while Patrick is very friendly bringing up the rear of the tour line to make sure everyone is safe and no one gets left behind. At the natural cave pool, I was hesitant to jump off the rocks, but Amin talked me thru it and then he even helped me get out of the rocky area. We got to do lots of driving through the desert, seeing the beauty that Aruba has to offer. I highly recommend!

Whenever my family and I join visit a country and join tours, the first thing I and my children look forward to is meeting and engaging with is the tour guide. A tour guide enlivens the tour in their own special ways. Amin, didn't disappoint.

He took care of us every step of the way in our natural pool adventure. He has funny stories and has a very good sense of humor. Moreover, he looks after us every step of the way: from navigating the terrain climbing down (especially my wife who easily gets afraid), to ensuring we're safely swimming the pool (it was very rough and wavy that day), to spotting a water snake (yes!) .

Aruba is one of the countries we would love to go back and visit again and will certainly look for Amin in doing this or other tours again.

Our UTV tour was hosted by Bryan and let me tell you it was the most amazing and spectacular tour. Me and my boyfriend had, and Bryan took us and showed us to Aruba’s top sites and gave us history of the island. On top of that Bryan is hilarious and courteous I really recommend my friends and anybody who’s coming to Aruba for vacation to book fofoti tours. But most definitely ask for BRYAN I’m telling you, you won’t regret it. Again I thank Bryan and fofoti tours for their amazing and spectacular service. I will book another tour again when I go back to Aruba for vacation . ~ Sahira

Amin and Patrick were absolutely incredible. They were punctual, had great stories to tell, and made us feel safe the entire tour.

The were great hosts, even making coffee for my wife at HQ!

I would highly recommend this tour with Amin and Patrick, as they made an already awesome trip even better. This was my favorite day of vacation, in large part due to the attentiveness of our tour guides.

Thank you both again!!

This was our 2nd time and we needed to bring back our crew of 8. Hands down great tour but the Amin makes it even better. His knowledge of the island and the information he gives you is very interesting and makes you want to know more. He makes us laugh along the way as I'm sure we make him laugh as well. The group of 8 will be coming back for him without a doubt. THANK YOU AMIN we will be back.

This UTV tour was a really fun way to see the island! Amin was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable about Aruba and really made sure we all had a great time. There were only two other young couples in addition to us on the tour. We left from Fofoti Headquarters (you do have to drive the UTV on the road to get to the sites) and went to the Conchi Natural Pool, Bushiribana Gold Mine Ruins, California Lighthouse, and Tres Trapi Beach (in that order). We didn't make it to the Alto Vista Chapel which was an advertised stop on the tour, so that was a little disappointing, but that location is easily accessible by car so it wasn't a big deal and we just went there later in the week. Bandanas were provided free to all tour participants, so at least right now, there is no need to pay extra for them. I didn't realize this and paid for two bandanas online that I didn't need to. I was told I would be refunded for the two I paid for, but haven't been after a week and a half... I definitely recommend purchasing the goggles they offer or bringing your own for this tour! You will get dirty and dust will get into your eyes without proper eye protection. I also suggest bringing water shoes for the Natural Pool as you have to walk over rocks to reach the pool. Overall an awesome tour and I would recommend it to others!

The best part about tge trip was our driver / tour guide. Patrick was friendly, informative and definitely tailored the experience to his audience!!
The natural pool was very beautiful and scenic. My advice would be to make sure you wear good shoes and bring water shoes as tge area is very rocky.
The picnic lunch at Baby beach was a very nice touch. Patrick shared stories and told us a lot about the history of the area.
I highly recommend booking with Fofoti tours and transfers and request Patrick as your driver / guide!!
