Jackie was an excellent host who was very friendly and knowledgeable about Aruba. She drove us all over the island in her small comfortable bus and pointed out many interesting things we would have otherwise missed. Very personable and caring. The tour was well worth the money and much better than the crowded big bus tours you typically get through the cruise line. I recommend!
