My husband, myself, and our three teens just returned from a 7 day curise on the Carnival Valor. My husband and I have been on several caribbean curises - this was the first one for our teenagers (18, 16, 14). The ship did not offer any tours that we were interested in so I researched trip advisor for ideas. I was a bit nervous as the Department of State had warnings about Americans traveling in Honduras. The reviews on cruise critic and trip advisor said not to be afraid and THEY WERE RIGHT. We had a wonderful time and not once did I feel uncomfortable. I wanted to book the tree top canopy adventure but had a few questions before I booked. South Shore e-mailed me back promptly and were very helpful. Once we arrived we followed the directions on the booking voucher. They were clear and easy to follow. In no time at all we were in the hands of Alvin our tour guide. He was very friendly and went out of his way to make sure we got to know his island and had a good sense of the culture. We even stopped for a few photo op's. Upon arrival to the ZIP LINE - Alvin told us we could leave all our bags in his car and he would be waiting for us to finish the ZIP LINE. He took us over and picked out Edward (aka Pancho) and Alexis to be our guides. I told Alexis I was afraid of heights and I was only there because my kids wanted to do it. Alexis told me he would make sure I had fun and he kept his promise. I had a BLAST! I recommend it even if you are afraid. This is a very safe set up and the guides are knowledgeable and really do know how to make sure you have a great time. The zips were long and high. The veiw was amazing. Alexis hooked his line to mine a couple times and helped me through the tall, fast zips. It was great! he even helped my daring kids do some tricks on the line! They loved it and we got some good photos. After we were done with the zip tour Alvin was waiting for us by his minivan. We jumped in and headed for the beach. Alvin talked to my daughter in Spanish and said she was pretty good. Then he started talking about the food and mentioned there was a local dish of stewed Iguana. He dropped us off at beach resort and then came back for us 2 hours later. We had a great time swimming in the crystal clear water. When he picked us back up he asked how our lunch was and I told him that we had swam so long we lost track of the time and didn't eat. Well he wasn't going to let us leave hungry so he found us a cute little roadside resturant where they actually served us Iguana! It does not taste like chicken! We had an extremely good time with Alvin and recommend this to anyone looking for adventure, scenery, and a glimpse of the culture on Isla Roatan. I would give it 6 stars if I could!
