Fantastic and worth giving up a few hours on the beach

What a fantastic tour. So interesting to hear the back story of each mural. When I say murals I mean huge murals some taking up the entire side of a building! The tour operator takes great care in explaining each mural and artist. You can drive to SanNicolas and look at the murals and oh and ah, but you will get only about 10% of the experience. The tour provides so much more than just looking at the murals..when you experience the tour you see what the mural is all about Not many things will make me give up beach time.. this is at the top of the short list. Easily walkable, not much walking as they are close together so accessible for all. Bring a camera and hat! Not as windy as the beaches. Already planning the next tour! Totally recommend

Simply Amazing!

Where do I start? Tito was very helpful, kind, funny and patient. It was my twin sister and I’s birthday and happened to be the only two on the tour which made for a personalized experience as well. Hearing the stories behind the paintings and all the art made this tour so much more worthwhile than waking around on your own. Some of the art has special effects and augmented reality that you wouldn’t know on your own. All of the murals and artwork were beautiful on their own but the tour with Tito made it much more magnificent! Highly recommend the Whole Story tour and we got to eat at ONeil restaurant afterwards which was sooo good and recommended by Tito. Thanks for making our birthday and first trip to Aruba a wonderful one!

THE WORST EXPERIENCE!!!

I did NOT get to do this tour. Tito was very unorganized and did not review his pick-ups for the day of the tour after confirmation the day before so he never picked me up. That was the second miss for him with me and I am totally done. Alot of going back and forth for no reason when I already had emails confirming my tour.

I am actually glad we did not meet. My 1st experience with you was already wrong claiming that we Arubans are lazy and what not. I was trying to explain you something and a you did is bash on me. You need to learn to respect people you are not the center of the universe. This 1 cry out on viator is not going to do us harm check out ALL the other feedback and let it sit... Enjoy the island! atleast try to...

Learning about the stories behind each mural was the most amazing experience. It really put into perspective the artist behind each one. Tito Bolivar went above and beyond to make this tour memorable, not only did he take the time to explain everything but he also gave us a history lesson on how the refinery impacted the Island. We learned so much more about the Island and look forward to coming back again.

Marvelous Mural Tour

Wow! That's the only way I can start this review! We have friends who recommended we do this tour in Aruba. They were staying on the island and looking for something other than beach. Boy, did they discover a winner and so did we! Tito Bolivar is a handsome young artist/director/mentor who has given this once dilapitated area of San Nicolas the most beautiful art murals you have ever seen. We were picked up at the port by Tito's lovely companion and driven right to the front door of ARTISA and introduced to Leon who would guide us through the streets decorated with these magnificent murals. It was the story they told and the in-depth knowledge Leon had that impressed us the most. This is a must-do for anyone who loves art and history. Best Caribbean experience we have ever had. Don't miss it!

We are honored to hear that you found our tour to be the Best Caribbean Experience and we look forward to have you back with us next year enjoying San Nicolas! Love, Tito Bolivar

My wife found this tour, and it turned out to me much more than I expected. Our guide, Leon Berenos, was one of the most interesting people I ever have met in my life. Not only did he give us a very detailed tour of the city of San Nicholas and the wonderful building murals that adorn this city, but went in to great depth explaining the art, the artists, the city and the country (of Aruba). This was a private tour that was very reasonably priced and worth every penny (plus more!)! We HIGHLY recommend this tour to EVERYONE, regardless of whether you are an art expert or no absolutely NOTHING about art at all!! This is a human story that just happens to revolve around art! One of best experiences of my wife's and my lives!!!

My fiance and I decided to book this walking tour since we loved the downtown Oranjestad walking tour we did last Nov (2018). We really love learning about the culture of the places we visit, as opposed to "touristy" things. This walking tour did NOT disappoint! Leon picked us up from our hotel, showed us around all of San Nicolas, explaining each and every piece of beautiful art that we came across, and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. Leon even took us to a few locations on the ride to and from our hotel to show us some places that we would not have typically gone to or come across on our own. He really knows his stuff, and he was beyond accommodating with us! We love Leon and would absolutely recommend this tour to everyone!

This tour was awesome! Maurenna pick me up from my hotel. There she introduced me to my guide and new friend, Leon. He graciously explained the artwork inside the studio before we headed out. We walked around a few blocks in town to see the murals and Leon knew the story behind each and everyone. The murals were a sight to see! There's a Jamaican restaurant across the street from his art studio where you may order lunch before heading back. I enjoyed my time with Leon! Thanks!
