Interesting experience
Delisa_S, Mar 2022
Richard was wonderful. After making it through the gauntlet of hawkers outside of the port Richard was a breath of fresh air. The tour is a drive to several locations. Gave us a flare of what the island is like. We did not end up at the beach but it was raining. Just clarify if you want to go to the beach. I think Buccaneer Restaurant is closed
Hayman Webster best tour guide in Roatan.

Hayman Webster was our tour guide and our new friend. He was so knowledgeable, accommodating and fun. We enjoyed seeing the island, the culture and meeting the locals. It was amazing.
The tour guide was beyond...

Not as advertised.

Long, uncomfortable rides is an old Toyota van that had wet seats and left all our group of 10 with wet pants. A trip to an animal sanctuary (monkeys and sloths) that charged an additional fee to enter. The chocolate factory and the rum tasting did not meet expectations. The hike up 75 steps to the "restaurant" wasn't as bad as the two hours we waited for lunch. then the rain started. The only bright spot was our guide/driver, Murphy.
Richard is the man!
James_V, Aug 2021
Richard was amazing! He helped find everything we were looking for, and got experience amazing food, desserts, and rum. We got to see the actual life of the island, not just the tourist life. 10/10 would recommend!

Met up with our guide Corvin at designated place . Good comfortable vehicle for just 2 if us . Drove through towns along East coast Corvin gave us great insight into local everyday life. Visited small chocolate factory , also rum factory , again small and although not that old the rum is ok and will only get better. Visited the main beach , no shortage of things to do . West Beach lunch at Buccaneers, simple but tasty. We loved the easy going way of Corvin , who was happy to do whatever we wanted at a relaxed pace ,Roatan does Honduras proud .

Roatan Drive By
Karen J, Dec 2019
We have taken Viator tours in other countries and expected this to be a legitimate tour. We expected this to take us to both a chocolate factory and a rum company for tours. Instead we viewed 2 gift shops! There was no tour at all and these were definitely not factories!! When I peeked behind an open door into the kitchen to see rum cakes being made, someone quickly closed the door and said we weren't supposed to see that! It was basically a drive around parts of the island. We could have hired a cheaper driver right off the ship to take us to these gift shops and restaurant. We did have a couple of stops for nice photo opps. Viator- you lose credibility for us with this "tour."
Response from Host, Dec 2019
Hi hope all is well with you and family sorry the tour wasn’t what you expected the tour is consist by a city tour history the island stop at the chocolate and rum cake factory now they aren’t big as other factory you guys may be use too they just small store where there are made right there for you guys to sample and get a state of how they are made and what they taste like and a chance to buy some more if you love it the restaurant is a local restaurant on the beach for you to get away from the crowd and have a local lunch for you to enjoy our local flavor am truly sorry you didn’t get to enjoy and it’s what you expected
A taste of Roatan
Stephen_G, Dec 2019
Tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and personable. The rum factory and chocolate factory seemed to be only stores where you could buy. There was little to see and experience regarding the production.
Great way to see Roatan
Keith L, July 2019
Roatan is pretty small, yet it's hard to understand the scope of the island and what there is. If you're already signed up for diving and/or going to see the monkeys and sloths, this trip gives you a good overview of the rest of Roatan. Our driver, Shirvin, was honestly the best of the dozens of drivers we've had globally in the past 10 yrs -- he was a great deal of fun to be with, he knew everything about the island, he was flexible and responsive to our needs and requests, and he has the world's best laugh. We were able to see the scope of the island and the different areas, visit a small rum factory and an even smaller chocolate factory, buy some souvenirs from a socially responsible vendor, and check out West Beach, all before eating a great lunch. Strongly recommend.

ロイヤルカリビアンインターナショナルのクルーズでロアタンに寄港しました。 クルーズのエクスカーションは、ビーチに行くプランや、ナマケモノを見に行くプランなど私達にとってはあまり魅力的ではないものが多く、インターネットで調べて急遽このツアーを予約しました。 この日は雨がパラつく天気でしたが、ガイドのジェイミー・ルイーズさんがホンデュラスやロアタンの文化について説明しながらダウンタウンや市場、展望スポットを案内してくれました。 説明は英語ですが、日本人でも聞き取りやすい英語で、すべては理解できなくてもジェイミーは優しいのできっとなんとかなります。 チョコレート工場やラムケーキ&ラム酒工場を見学したのち、ビーチサイドのレストランでランチ。米とレッドビーンズを炊いた赤飯似たご飯と、魚のフライ、バナナチップスをいただきました。 長すぎず、短すぎない4時間弱のツアーでしたが、カリブ海の島の生活を垣間見ることができました。 ガイドのジェイミーがとても親切でよりロアタンの町を魅力的に感じる事ができました。 おすすめです。
