We had been to Roatan before and we wanted to go back to some of the same places again. We could not find a tour that was offered by the cruise lines to fulfill our needs. We always have taken cruise tours before and have never taken an independent tour. We are so happy that we found Mr Murphy's Tours.... More

This was our first excursion not affiliated with our cruise line. Read reviews and thought I would give Murphy's a try. We had some miscommunication prior to our departure, but everything was straightened out (through email and telephone) before we departed for our cruise. My wife and I wanted to do a zipline and island tour (time permitting). During our... More

We have prepaid for the West End tour plus the glass bottom boat tour. We were told to go to specific spot just outside the pier after debarkation and someone would be there waiting for us. But there were no one there on the day of our arrival. We have to ask a few other tour operators and one of... More

After looking at lots of reviews on various sites I decided to book our cruise excursion with Murphy's instead of through the cruise line. Best decision ever. Murphy met us a short distance from the cruise terminal. All the other tour operators knew who Murphy was and directed us right to him. We thoroughly enjoyed our ride with Murphy as... More

We were picked up from the cruise ship by Lincoln as Murphy was busy. It was an excellent experience and a delight to experience Roatan with them.

I think we were handed off to a rookie driver that seemed unfamiliar with many of the sights and attractions of Roatan. I think Murphys has lost quality control as they had a large group of drivers available to our ship's passengers the day we were there. We are travel agents but we purposely didn't tell Murphy that. It would... More

Mr. Murphy was fabulous with my wife and me as we enjoyed the island of Roatan very much. Highly recommended. He grew up some in New York so his English is very good.

Booking was easy with prompt confirmation and meeting instructions. We were on a Carnival cruise and booked Gumbalimaba park and Bananarama beach. Coming from Mahagony Bay we had to walk through the port and over a small hill. That was the easy part. Once you are over the hill there are people standing all along side the road asking questions.... More

We were on a Carnival cruise that included Roatan, Honduras. We booked an excursion for zip lining into Gumbalimba park directly with Murphy's tours. We walked through the port, down the hill about a quarter of a mile, but it was WELL worth it. The price was incredibly reasonable, the service was EXCEPTIONAL! There were 5 people in our group....

Murphy Johnson is a Roatan native who returned home to start a tour guide business after spending three decades in New York. We found him to be a friendly and engaging companion who seemed very well informed about life on the island and in Honduras. Our tour focused on the western half of the island (at our request) and lasted... More
