What an amazing night filled with a terrific and fun dining experience, delicious food, new friends, and a wonderful garden and herb tour. Louis was a very knowledgeable guide and told us all about the history of the farm. The cooking class portion was so much fun and dinner was very filling! Enjoyed a beautiful sunset while we ate a traditional Aruban meal with ingredients from the farm. From the fresh smoothie upon arrival to the delicious frozen treat for dessert. This experience was truly unique and fun! I’ve already recommended it to friends who have booked for their upcoming trip.

This experience is just what we were looking for to truly experience Aruba beyond the beaches. The hosts were gracious and authentic Arubians who made every effort to make our experience enjoyable. We learned so much about life in Aruba and the history along with creating a delicious meal. Thank you Suzette and Louis! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for more than beaches and tourist traps.

Very unique experience. Our tour and dinner was lead by Louis. He said it was his first time doing it, but he grew up working on the farm and was very informative and pleasant. Making dinner was fun and it was delicious! Glad to have a taste of what real Aruba is like! Would highly recommend this trip!

We were looking for a small group tour that would be different. This was definitely that. The title ".......Farm to Table" led us to believe the food we would be preparing came from the farm we visited but that is not case. However, that did not diminish the experience in any way. This is just an observation. Goshen Farms is charming place to visit. There are also guesthouses with a small pool which can be rented. Our hostess - whose name I had written down, then lost, was an absolute delight. We prepared a traditional Aruban meal which was so much fun! After we sat and enjoyed our meal under a thatched roof with a beautiful sunset. We recommend this to anyone who enjoys trying new things.

Thank you so much for your feedback and review. We deeply appreciate it. We hope you get to remake the meal at home and share our local delight with friends and family. Thank you again!
