    Our guide Kelvin was great. We had a great day. Everyone loved the animals especially the sloth hugs. Kelvin took us where we wanted to go and gave us a lot of information about Roatan.

    We chose the customized, personal tour then changed what we wanted to see when we got in the van. Our guide, Big Al, was amazing! We went to interact with monkeys and cuddle the sloths first and we were the first ones there. While there, we also had beautiful macaw's stand on

    I am so happy that you enjoyed Roatan's ORIGINAL Customizable Best of Roatan Tour... It is a great tour, where we try to customize everything so that your day wil be perfect! I am ALWAYS happy (but never surprised) to read teh glowing reviews on Big Al -- he is so proud of Roatan and LOVES shariing the island with others. I am surprised how he is able to fit so-much into a guest's short time in-port... and I'm glad that we lived up to your son's proclomation that "This is the best day ever!" We hope to see you again (and again and again...) so that we can spend LOTS of great days together on Roatan with Big Al! Thank you so much.

    This past year in April 2019 & August 2019 I have used Victor Bodden for a customized tour. I have to say that they are the BEST. One time I was solo and felt completely safe and had a excellent time. In August 2019 I was part of a group and I used the same Tour Guide: Howard

    We got there on a cruise ship, less than an hour after we docked, and found that our reservation had already been crossed out and given to someone else. We had to wait for about 10 minutes while they found us another driver. The van was nice, but it was completely blocked in by
