“what a great day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We did the island tour. It included a personal guide that took us to popular cites. We went to the iguana farm. It was $8 per person for a small little area, but the kids loved it. We went to the monkey farm also which I highly recommend it was also $8 per person. Got in the cages and played with the monkees. The highlight was definitely the zip line. It was unbelievable. The guide assists you with everything. We then went snorkeling on a truly amazing reef. A rather large reef. We rounded the trip off with an ocean side lunch. The guide was so nice to us and would take us anywhere we wanted to go. It an expensive day, but its worth the money. I would definitely avoid using the cruise line trips. Way too much money gets added on for the cruise line. The cruise line also hinders small children from participating in the shore activites.

“We are glad that we booked with Christopher tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We came in on the Carnival Dream for the day and had booked this tour several weeks earlier. To start with, you have to walk out of the port and over a hill to meet your driver. This is because the cruise ships don't want outside vendors messing with their ability to make a ton of cash for the same services. I want to tell you upfront that you have nothing to worry about with Christopher tours. Their driver they provided to us was completely professional, punctual, knowledgeable, and laid back with a lot to tell. You can read other reviews and see that their other drivers treat people with the same courtesy that our driver Alonzo did for our party.

My family and I are Geocachers so when we met with Alonzo and discussed what we would like to do for the day, I explained that we wanted to find some of the caches on the island as part of our tour. He had never heard of geocaching but was happy to oblige and interested to learn something new. You can tell that Alonzo loves his island and after spending the day with him, we love his little island as well. We visited some small souvenir stands on top the cliff which was pretty routine but the views from where we were are just spectacular. We also visited the monkey farm which is simply not to be missed. There is not too many times where you will be able to be so up close and personal with so many of these animals. We made a few more caching stops before ending up at West Bay/Tabyana beach. We went parasailing then spent some time in the water before heading back to the cruise pier. I can't say enough good about our experience with this company. We are very likely to go back to Routan again so we can enjoy more of what the island has to offer. This is largely due to the depth of information Alonzo gave us while we were there. He is an asset to his company and his island.

“Great day with our guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Bought our tour through the internet after reading reviews here. Our guide, Dario, was great, funny and friendly. After zip lining he took us to a beach that worked out well and then took us to a seafood spot that was exactly what we hoped for.

“Best tour ever with "Kevin" Iguana and Monkey farm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We booked this tour while on a western caribbean cruise. Because we were a family of five we did not book through the boat but privately. I had read many reviews and this tour company received great reviews in particular Kevin. If you request Kevin as a tour guide you will not be disappointed. He was born and raised on the island, lived their his entire life and knows the island so well. He has been providing tours for over 10 years. Kevin was so friendly, and told us all about Roatan and answered many of our questions about the main land of Honduras. We had been on excursions the previous two days and were somewhat tired when we started out but Kevin was cool with just taking it easy with us. We did not want to pack the day too full. In particular we wanted to see the iguanas and the monkey farm. In transit to the monkey farm we encountered a back up of traffic due to a "labour day" celebration parade the locals had that was blocking the main road of traffic. Generally speaking this parade usually started later and it was just bad luck we were stuck behind it on basically the only main road to the monkey farm at the opposite end of the island. Kevin however, got creative and he knew the back dirt roads up over the hills and succeeded in getting us around the parade. In addition, we got to see some scenic country side that most tourists would never have the opportunity to see because no one uses these roads. Kevin was great, he felt bad about the little delay but in the end the tour through the country side was just what we needed. He had indicated that in all of his years as a guide, he never had had to take that road. It sure was fun though. We concluded our tour with a stop at the beach making it back to the port in lots of time to do some shopping there as well. If you have children be sure to go to the iguana and monkey farm. The five of us were very comfortable in his air conditioned van, it was a good size and we each all had a bench seat to ourselves. Kevin was so personal as well.

Kevin if you are reading this, thanks for making our day great. We really enjoyed seeing your homeland. If we ever come to Roatan again, we will be sure to look you up. Thanks again!

“Roatan Zipline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

I booked for the wrong date! We were traveling on cruise ship. But when my group arrived, Christopher had someone get us immediately and even came by our first stop to check on us. This is our second time using Christopher Tours - They are the only way to go.
