The Start of Aruba Vip Tours
Welcome to Aruba Vip Tours. In my first entry I introduce myself, where I came from and why I decided to start Aruba Vip Tours. I am Antonio Arrindell. I was born in Sint Maarten. My mom is from Sint Maarten and my dad is Arubian. I was raised in Aruba and Sint Maarten.
Start of Vip Tours - I have been working over 20 years in the tourism industry. My girl-friend from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Her parents come to visit us every year. The first time they came, they wanted to go on a private tour to explore the island. Pretty quickly we found ourselves with not many options. We realized that island was missing private and luxury tours and so was the idea of Aruba Vip Tours born.
It wasn't a overnight birth, it took about 1.5 years of planning, networking and learning. We thought of our honeymoon trip to Thailand, where we took private tours. We were sure that many people would love to have a private tour experience while visiting our romantic island Aruba, as we did while visiting Thailand. Our approach on creating this company was very simple.
Our main purpose - We asked ourselves one question: how would we like to be treat if we are on a tour? So your tour starts as soon as you are picked up and there is no transferring to office and waiting to go out on the tour.
We know your time is precious while you are on vacation in Aruba, so We provide you everything what you need to start your adventure with us, like snorkeling equipment, water booties, floats and refreshments (water, juice, soda and snacks). We tried to think of every detail to make your experience with us unique, but also comfortable.
Our main focus is taking couples or families on a private tour. This way you can see the island on your own pace and there is no rush. The vehicles we use are the new 4x4 Toyota FJ Cruisers.
We have a professional team of drivers/guides that love what they do. They will also inform you about the history and heritage of our one happy island.
I manage sales and marketing. My wife handles the administration, while getting her Master's degree in Law. We love what we do and strive to give you the best experience while vacationing in Aruba. See you soon on one of our tours.
