Bedrock Tours N.V. which features the Kukoo Kunuku Nightlife Buses was established in Aruba in 1996. Starting with an original idea and a unique formula to introduce our island visitors to our Caribbean culture and nightlife, a new entertainment venue was founded and success was its reward. Although this paranda (party bus) concept has been copied in Aruba as well as around the world our business model has never been compromised and we continue to enjoy steady growth in Arubas tours and activity market.
Rated #1 by "E" Entertainment TV as their favourite Aruba tour, the Kukoo Kunuku has a well recognised name in the Caribbean and beyond and an unrivalled reputation for entertainment and fun.
Fully 45% of our clients are returning guests or referrals and we have a network of loyal Aruba visitors who refuse to visit Aruba without taking a little ride on the Kukoo Kunuku.
Our evening tours (Dinner and Nightlife Tour and Pub Krawl Adventure) are the foundation of our company, however during the past 19 years, we have increased our vehicle inventory and have grown and diversified our product by adding new and different tours.
Presently, we also offer daytime island tours to the group business and incentive market and we have current contracts with several of the cruise ship lines which visit Aruba, providing their clients with both day and evening tours.
We also operate customised private tours and transfers as well as meet and greet airport services to both the individual, group and incentive market.
Our present vehicle inventory consists of (10) open-air Kukoo Kunuku buses (capacity of 425 pax) and (1) Azera VIP Towncar.
The value of our company owned vehicles is not reflected in the below listed furniture and fixtures section.
Please visit our website at kukookunuku.com, our Facebook page at KukooKukuku/Facebook and read our reviews on Trip Advisor where Kukoo Kunuku is listed as the #1 nightlife activity in Aruba.
This business is unique, fun, profitable and after 23 years in business continues to grow in popularity.
For anyone who ever wanted to escape to the Caribbean, here is your opportunity to live your dream as we have for the past 23 years.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

There is ample opportunity for growth both in the long term vacationing tourist market as well as the short term visiting cruise ship market. We have never actively pursued the local market but there are opportunities if one should want to pursue this market as well in the future.

Competition / Market:

Although there are other open air buses in Aruba, and a few have evening programs, they work almost entirely with local group charters. Ever since the Kukoo Kunuku was established in 1996, we have been the leader in our marketplace and our sales and financial success has never been seriously compromised. De Palm Tours is the largest tour operator in Aruba and has been a ticket agent for our company since its inception. Our tours are also sold by Pelican Adventures and Red Sail Sports who operate activity tour companies in Aruba as well as independents sales locations located in the hotel sectors and beaches throughout the island. The Kukoo Kunuku buses are also a favourite transfer opportunity for the several DMCS (Destination Management Companies) which sell programs for Aruba bound incentive groups. We also do a tremendous amount of direct business on island and off island through our company website, Facebook, Expedia, Viator, Cheap Caribbean and aruba.com.

We started this business in 1996 and have been fully active in the day to day operations as well as its product development from day one.
