We elected to do a private tour around Roatan. Our driver was excellent and had lots of information and answers to all our questions. We spent about 2 hours with him and felt it was well worth the price. I would recommend this option to anyone who wants to see the city and countryside.
In Roatan, we did a private island tour. Franklin Hyns was our guide and he asked us what we might want to see on our tour. Mom has mobility challenges so we said local culture, local flavor, island sites. Culture appeals to mom. He told us about the flora and fauna, industry. We stopped at a cashew tree and talked about how it grew, how they used it. We ate some of the fruit of the cashew. We saw the lighthouse, a shipwreck, a chocolate factory, a beautiful beach. He took us to an open air restaurant where locals went and we ate iguana, whole fish and shrimp. We passed his mom and he pulled over and introduced us. Franklin was very solicitous to mom and helped her get around. All in all it was a great day and very easy for my mom to get around. Five stars for Franklin, best guide ever.

Our tour guide was very informative and very eager to help in anyway to make our tour fun and interesting. He asked where or what we wanted to see and took us to some very good places to see and experience the local culture.
We were a group of four adults visiting Roatan for the first time. We were more interested in history and culture than in Zip Lines and shopping, so we booked this free style private tour. Shawn, our driver and guide, began by planning the day with us. He was born on the island and spoke English as his first language. After learning about our interests and priorities, he added some things to include, and we were on our way. He clearly loves his island and enjoyed sharing it with us. He told us about the cultures and languages of Roatan, and the history of how they came to be there. Our questions were answered… comfort stops were provided…and great photo opportunities were a priorty. After lunch and additional touring, we still wanted more. Shawn had no problem extending our time together. When all was done, we came away with a real connection to Roatan.
