The driver was new...he had been working only a few months. I had researched other people's comments before the trip, so we asked to go to certain places and he gladly showed us those areas. He also answered lots of questions to help us understand the culture. We enjoyed the tour very much.

Shorn was very accommodating. Took us to see many points of interest with a wealth of knowledge of his island. Drove safely and stopped whenever we asked him to. We asked him to take us to his favorite lunch spot and where locals go so we can have local dishes to eat. It was just what we were looking for, very good food there. We felt we were in good hands the entire time with Shorn. We had a great time seeing the island with him.

I booked a private tour and was met by Harley outside the port. Harley drove us around the island, pointing out places of interest and took us to the monkey/sloth preserve. Unfortunately, the spider monkeys are territorial and there was an incident where my father was grabbed by the monkeys and injured. Harley was right there and quickly got his car. He returned us to our ship and I asked if he would return in about 90minutes. I kind of didn’t expect him to return but he did and came right on time. His explanation left no doubt that he returned because of his strong moral compass and good character. He had no expectation of earning more money. We loved having Harley as our driver. He answered our questions about the history of the island. Harley was the perfect guide for us. He is an excellent reflection of the kind of people that I assume are on Roatan.

Roatan was our favorite port and we really enjoyed our private tour and local guide, Shorn Rich. We opted to simply tour the island versus an excursion. We had the opportunity to see and learn about the island and the people who live there from a local which was very special. Shorn was wonderful and stopped where we asked, we did a little shopping and got some great photos in addition to learning the history of the island. Shorn was great and we highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful experience with our guide. He was on time, polite, showed us things we were not aware of. And took us to the places we knew we wanted to see. His driving was great and his English was great. All in all it was a great experience. Regina,Canada
