One Happy Island Tour
Karl_S
, Apr 2022
We can't say enough good things about Jeff Classic Tour! Jeff is extremely entertaining and knowledgeable - a great storyteller when talking about his beloved Aruban island and culture. The open-air bus was very comfortable and breezy, and all 7 stops were fun and interesting. We’re sure there are many good tour guides on the island, but Jeff is truly one of a kind. We highly recommend this tour with Jeff Classic Tour. Jeff, if you read this, thanks again for everything! See you on our next trip :) Beth & Karl

Authentic tour of Aruba
Sandra_H
, Apr 2022
Being that this was our first trip to Aruba, we really wanted a tour that would let us see & learn about this beautiful island & it’s beautiful people. Jeff made our afternoon memorable, rich with great stories of the islands history, along with a tour that let us appreciate Aruba’s landscape. Tour lasted over 4hrs, never felt rushed, lots of laughing, lots of talking, felt at home. We plan on returning soon, guaranteeing booking with Jeff again to further explore the island. Thank you Chef Jeff, please say Hi to Ms. Marsha for us… Robert & Sandra

A Fantastic Tour
Suzanne_S
, Feb 2022
A wonderful tour here in Aruba. It turned out to be just the two of us along with Jeff, this richly informative, exuberantly garrulous, and charmingly affable guide in an open-window converted school bus. We visited a house and yard preserved to display the life of a typical rural working-class Aruban family through seven decades of the last century, learned fascinating facts about the cultivation, uses, and economic history of aloe Vera, petted and fed lovely burros at a donkey sanctuary while a flock of peacocks and peahens ambled around us, saw ancient native petroglyphs in a cave at a massive rock formation, sampled different flavors of rum in a liquor store that the consequences of the pandemic had relocated to a single room in a private residence, and even learned a fair number of Papiamento words and phrases. In addition to all that, we got to know a lot about our guide, both as a proud Aruban and as a fellow human being. As we travelled he showed us not only the destinations on our itinerary but, in passing, places important in his own life and family history. Moreover, there was hardly any minute that elapsed without his either greeting — by honking or joyously shouting or both — some good friend or family relation. Sometimes similar glad greetings came from others first because they saw his bus before he saw them. One could easily imagine that he was connected to some majority of the island’s local population. We have experienced many tours over the years, many of them excellent, but we can honestly say that none have given us more of a sense of both fun and human connection. than this memorable experience.

Hidden Gem!
Amber_P
, Jan 2022
My husband and I have been to Aruba in the past, but mostly stayed around the resort. This experience was amazing, we got a history of the island while visiting amazing places. Jeff made us feel like part of the family and even showed us many local Hidden Gems to visit. Not a scripted tour! He answered all of our questions and even taught us some of the language! The rum tasting was amazing, so many delicious flavors to test. The old Aruba house museum was very educational and amazing to see how far things have come in the last 20-30 years. Definitely recommend for people who want to learn about the island. Will definitely use again in the future!! Thanks so much Jeff, we had an absolute blast!

Excellent day on One Happy Island!

We spent a great day with Jeff- from Jeff Classic Tours. We were looking for a different type of Aruban tour- wanted to see other parts of the island-apart from the other tours. We visited a Cunucu house, great tour of the Aruba Aloe Factory and an amazing & yummy rum tasting. But, I think what we enjoyed the most was getting to know the island, head to areas off the beaten path, enjoy an amazing meat filled pastry (Jeff said snack - we said lunch!). We even stopped for a cold Chill along the way. If you’re looking for a great tour- this is it. Jeff was so accommodating and treated us as best of friends.

Mom’ Birthday was made very special

Jeffrey was so nice, patient and so knowledgeable about the country, he remembers even the centuries. The tour with him was educational and you even can feel as if you lived there back in the days. I went in the half day tour but we practically seen almost whole town. It was my mothers birthday and he made special trips that was not included in the itinerary and that made my mother feel extra special that it made her day.

Amazing Half Day Tour w Jeff
Vernell_R
, Aug 2021
My husband and I really enjoyed our time with Jeff. He’s an amazing historian. For me when I travel it’s all about the history of the country. Jeff provided that for us. It was supposed to be 8 people on the tour, but it turned out to just be my husband and I. For us it was like a private tour. Of course with that being said, we got extra perks. Thanks so much Jeff for showing us your amazing country. I’m so in love with this country🇦🇼❤️🇦🇼. I will visit annually if it is the will of God! Masha Danki

Best tour of Aruba!

This was the best tour we took in Aruba! Jeffrey was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about Aruba and its history. We especially enjoyed the glassblowing demonstration and the visit to the donkey sanctuary. He showed us so many interesting sights, and told us so many stories based on personal experience that we now feel like we truly know the island. We even learned a few words in Papiamento! I highly recommend this fantastic tour!!

Half day bus tour with Jeff
William_G
, Jun 2021
My wife Marie and I visited Aruba for the first time in June 2021. We wanted to find a tour that would show us and give us the best information on the Islands history, people, neighborhoods, etc. We found the perfect tour. The 1/2 day tour with our driver Jeff was outstanding. His bus is cute, he is friendly, professional, thoughtful, informative, polite, accommodating, just the perfect 'nice guy'. We visited five terrific places and experienced, and learned so much about the beautiful island of Aruba.
