          Best bang for your buck
          Had a total blast! There are lots of vendors wanting you to go with them once we got off the ship but we told them we were with Anderson Roatan and they pointed us in the right direction and we found them pretty easy. There was an issue with my credit card (my fault) and so our reservations were cancelled but they were able to squeeze us in. They moved us right along with the zip lines so you aren’t waiting around for long which was really nice with the heat and humidity. They had a photographer who can buy pics from but they had no problem with us using my own Go Pro which I know other companies won’t because they want you to buy their photo packages. Holding the monkeys and sloths was pretty cool. We ended up snorkeling at West Bay which was $15 per person more but really worth it. Our driver made sure to find us chairs to sit in with umbrellas and also made arrangements for a short boat ride to go and snorkel the reef. The reef was teeming with life and we saw tons of different variety of fish. The driver is on your time and will get you back to the ship port whenever you tell them.

          Glass bottom boat fun.
          This is a great shore excursion and well worth the money. The Boat's air-conditioned and the tour is about an hour long. You're guaranteed to view various sealife.

          Amazing time! Will be back 100%
          When I tell you this was the best vacation that my family and I went on. From day one we felt safe and went to many awesome places. We are already planning the next vacation with our friends!

          A True Escapade
          This excursion was the perfect tour for my first full day in Roatan. My husband asked me where I wanted to go for our annual summer vacation. In 2018, we had the pleasure of experiencing this beautiful country while on an excursion for carnival cruise lines. That experience led me to read up on the history and people of Honduras. The choice was simple: Roatan. The people were so welcoming, and the food was exquisite, not to mention the tour guide's patience, professionalism, and congeniality (in 2018). This experience was exponentially 2.0! Ron Whitaker is a local historian, not just a tour guide. His love for and knowledge of his homeland was evident from the greeting to the drop-off. As we sojourned in the lush and beautiful countryside of Roatan, he familiarized us with everything from the fruit stand to the university to the free hotel (the local jail). He was warm, humorous (not crude), respectful (not dismissive), and an overall joy! As Ron warmly handed us over to the local subject matter experts in Mangrove (Orlando Diaz) and Punta Gorda (El profesor, Mr. Alfred), we were introduced to the warm introduction of confidence and the assurance of safety. They were equally knowledgeable and engaging. The only disappointment was the experience ended. I have visited 20 countries (Africa, South/Central America, and Europe) and multiple states in the US. He is the gold standard for tour guides. My litmus test for all "tour guides" (as I said, he is a "Historian") from this day forward.

          Sloths and snorkeling but so much more when a good driver!
          Advertised as “Sloths and snorkeling “ On a recent trip to Roatán on a prominent cruise line, we decided to try and go on an excursion when we docked in Roatan. After talking with the ships excursion team they informed me that there wasn’t room on the busses for my son’s wheelchair, and that the excursions I had inquired about wasn’t suitable for my party. After this disappointing news I did what anyone would do I went to google and searched for accessible tours in roatan. After sifting through a few I landed on a tour provided by Anderson Tours. It was advertised as Daniel Johnson sanctuary (sloths and monkeys) and snorkeling. The biggest selling point was it was wheelchair accessible. I booked this excursion and man was it great not only did we have the best Driver/Tour guide in Artmon we experienced more than advertised. Started with port pickup,then we saw the shipwreck and historic parts of the Island. Artmon then informed us of our itinerary sanctuary,chocolate factory, and snorkeling. And anything else we wanted to do. He was very informative about history of the island, took us to a delicious restaurant for an amazing lunch of the local fare.(ox tails,lobster,iguana) He was so attentive to my family and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our day in Roatan. So if you are coming to Roatan bypass the cruise excursion and book your tours with Anderson Tours and ask for Artmon you won’t regret it!!

          Extremely reliable company, extremely fun!
          Extremely reliable and legit. Met us exactly as promised and had our names. Took us to horseback riding, which is operated by a third party. It was fun, but if you are a scared individual, it might not be for you. The horses walk through the woods and water, it is honestly amazing once you get used to it! Next we went to the sanctuary and saw the animals. Super fun and interactive. Then, we did snorkeling which was an out of the world experience. Amazing reef and guides that were provided by the company. They helped my mom who can’t even swim enjoy her experience!! Best part is there is NO hidden fees or scams! One person in our group last minute decided to opt out of some activities and she was not charged for those activities, without us even asking. Our tour guide Carla and Martinez were extremely helpful and kind. This tour company made Roatan our best excursion yet!

          Great Day in Roatan
          What a great first experience for our family group of 9! Should we ever return to Roatan we will use this service again. Our driver (and tour guide), Allen, was fantastic! He arranged all our extracurricular activities once we arrived at Beachers on West Bay. Allen and the staff at Beachers (particularly Owen) were very attentive to our 80 YO mother. We snorkeled with Captain (Baby) Kevin and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the water. Capt Kevin kept a good watch over his passengers. Two of our party parasailed and had a great experience. We had to return to the ship terminal a bit early, due to minor medical issues our Mother was having, but enjoyed our time nonetheless. Allen, Owen and Beachers staff were very helpful with Mom. We recommend using Anderson Roatan Tours.

          Best excursion ever!
          This trip was amazing. Our driver Edgar was #1 the best tour guide. We were able to squeeze in a few extra places. All I had to do was ask and he knew exactly where to go. We were treated like royalty.

          Unforgettable experience in Roatan with great tour agency
          Our tour with Roatan Anderson was a blast. I highly recommend this tour company to anyone who wants to enjoy a day in Roatan. The driver was waiting on us in the exact spot based on the instructions located in TripAdvisor. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. This agency is trustworthy, friendly and highly professional. We chose this tour instead of the ship because you get a load of activities for one price and the privacy of a private tour cannot be beaten. We were a family of 4 and we had the car for ourselves so we did not have to wait on anyone , we toured the way we wanted, according to our time. We left at 9 AM and were back on the ship on time around 3 PM. The driver David stays with you the whole time. He was kind , sweet and knowledgeable. As he took us from a place to another , he gave us an overview of the history and the people. He also kept our belonging safe while we were zip-lining or horse back riding . He took us zip lining which was an adventure of lifetime I will never forget that part of the tour. The horse back riding was ok , however the beach and the snorkeling in Roatan was something to remember for the rest of your life and I had my fair share of diving and snorkeling around the world. I cannot imagine going back without contacting Anderson first. Don’t hesitate, they are just wonderful. David thank you man you ROCK!!!!

          Highly recommend!
          We really enjoyed our tour with Leonard of Anderson Tours. He helped us make our day in Roatan an adventure we will remember. We requested to see monkeys and sloths and the coral reef. We also had a restaurant we wanted to try and he incorporated it into our trip. We enjoyed his personal stories and sharing history and life on the island. We had our 4 children with us who really loved the glass bottom boat where we saw all kinds of fish, turtles, rays and starfish. The vehicle was nice and clean, we felt safe the whole trip and just really enjoyed our day. Thank you Leonard for the extra effort making our adventure one we will remember for years to come.

        if you go by cruise DO NOT pay for their excursion package, they are way overpriced. there is plenty of taxi and shuttles at the port you can take for half the money the cruise line charges. we did it and had a blast. we talked with others back on the boat and they did the same thing and all had a good time. you can totally customize your adventure just the way you want and either stay longer at one place or shorter its totally up to you.
