Ever since the company’s establishment on April 4 back in 2004, it has been our mission to give every client the ultimate personalized experience in transportation and guided tours. Kini Kini Transfer & Tours was started by Christine and Eloy Arends. Christine, born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, was chased by the harsh Chicago winters all the way to sunny Florida where she attended Barry University.
One day, at that very school, she met a jolly group of Arubans who convinced her to take a trip to the island, which she did, and met her husband, Eloy Arends. After dating for two years they decided to tie the knot in ’84 and live happily ever after in Aruba. They have two kids, Alexandra born in 1986 and Jonathan Arends born in 1992, who now manages the company’s day-to-day operations.
The company continues under the management of the Arends family who make it their priority to keep Kini Kini Transfer & Tours’ welcoming environment happy and friendly.
The couple, who at the time only had a Hyundai 12-seater, founded Kini Kini Transfer & Tours. They started this project after the bank where Christine had been working for 15 years was sold in 2004. That same year they decided to enter the booming, dynamic market of tourism in Aruba.
Now, a decade and a half later, their unwavering dedication and persistence in the face of tough challenges and risks has grown the company into one big happy family with a solid fleet of 20+ specialized transportation and off-road vehicles, driven by who seem to be quite possibly the happiest staff you could find in Aruba.
We are proud of all of the wonderful people who have formed a vital part of our team over the years. Meet Kini Kini Transfer & Tours big happy family.
