MORE THAN 50 YEARS SERVING ARUBA’S TOURISM

De Palm Tours started operations in 1960 as a tour and transportation company by Luis C. De Palm. The company was acquired by local businessman Harold Malmberg in 1971 who as part of his growth strategy created a Destination Management Services (DMS) company over 25 years ago specifically geared to cater to the needs of the MICE and groups market. Our DMS Company operates independently but is backed by the resources of De Palm Tours which has access to a fleet of luxury motor coaches, UTV and Land Rover off-road vehicles, submarines, a luxury catamaran, and Aruba’s only coral reef island attraction - De Palm Island. This gives us the flexibility to design a program that meets both your needs and budget. In addition, De Palm operates Activity Desks at twenty four locations around the island. Our team of professionals will work to support you by designing and executing unique and unforgettable group programs and events.

Thank you! You and your team were awesome! We had such a great time in Aruba and YOU played a large part in our success. Comments from our attendees on how nice and friendly your team was on the excursions and at the hospitality desk, were commonplace. Thank you for all your hard work on our program; before it operated and also onsite. All the phone calls, the emails, ant the ideas that you shared with my team, were very much appreciated.

Our executives, top sales people, and invited guests just returned from our Circle of Excellence trip in Aruba. We were fortunate to have been put in touch with De Palm Tours as our destination management company. De Palm Tours assisted us with our airport transfers, as well as 2 wonderful group activities, the UTV Tour and a sunset catamaran sail. Irma and Tashira were very responsive to our initial information gathering questions and worked diligently to schedule our events.

I highly recommend De Palm Tours as THE destination management company for Aruba.

Sue Hetzel - Vital, A Toshiba Medical Systems Group Company

Thank you one again for your hard work and dedication to our group during our recent incentive trip to Aruba. Our group of 170 attendees were treated to some of the best that Aruba had to offer and it went off without a hitch because of your team. From organizing our arrivals, dine around dinners and entertainment, etc a little extra effort was put forth on each function. As a planner, my time is tight, but I could always count on you and your team to be an extension of Hino and represent us in a professional manner.

Should our travels ever bring us to Aruba again (and I hope they do) we will count on De Palm for our destination management needs.

It was a real pleasure working with you and De Palm on my program needs. Transfers were perfect. The catamaran was a huge success, the Jeeps – same feedback! The folks who went fishing caught fish and had them for dinner at Simply Fish and the Horseback Riders really enjoyed the experience. I am definitely going t be pushing my clients to do Aruba. De Palm Tours and Marriott make it easy program delivery. Have a great summer and I’ll see you next spring with a group I am confirming soon.

Every once in a while, the service I receive from a provider is so outstanding that I simply can’t pass up the opportunity to write a note of thanks. This is such a case. I can’t thank you, Angelo, Jeanette and the entire De Palm and Mosaic staff for the truly outstanding service they provide for the MSC Sid’s Club at the Radisson Aruba February 7-10, 2013. Thank you for providing us with a great team to make Sid’s Club FY2012 the most spectacular event to date. Whenever I have the opportunity to make a recommendation for a DMC in Aruba, there is only one choice – DePalm! If you ever need a recommendation, I hope you will feel free to ask.

Dianne Heffernan CTC, CMP - ProEvents

Thank you for an outstanding introduction to destination Aruba, the unique and friendly Dutch Caribbean country. Can you see me, I’m wearing my De Palm Tours cap as I’m sending you greetings from Miami while also enjoying all of the wonderful pictures taken on the De Palm Island, the Atlantis submarine, the Sea Trek Underwater Helmet Walk, and the wonderful rugged jeep safari. Your services is such an intricate part of what makes Aruba a "must" for my clients.

Jeris L. Smith - APR Travel & Tours

A huge thank you to each of you for all of the hard work and professionalism applied to the ePlus President’s Club Trip at Hyatt Aruba last week. Everyone is raving about all of the service, activities and details and I wanted to let you each know how very much appreciated your efforts are. I sure I hope I can bring our trip back to Aruba next year, or the year after, and I can’t wait to work with you and the wonderful De Palm team again. If you need any type of corporate reference, please feel free to provide my name, I am your biggest fan!

Dawn Kerwick - ePlus Technology

I just wanted to contact all of you to say THANK YOU for everything. You did a spectacular job in arranging transfers in both directions. Giving out the yellow bags at the airport was a great way to know who was with our group. Everything was PERFECT. My family and I did the jeep trip and so did others and loved it. Giovani was our driver and he was great. Thanks again. Guess we will be doing it again in 2016.

Sheila F. Clarke–G&S Travel and Tours LLC

Thanks for all of your assistance with the ML Group! You and your team are the perfect partner as an extension of our team! It sure makes our lives a lot better knowing we can count on you for execution. Keep up the outstanding work and best wishes for the future! Cheers!
