Ron met us at the dock to take us on the most wonderful trip of his island. He takes great pride in showing you the real Roatan, not just the tourist places. As I am mobility impaired at the moment he went out of his way to get us right up to the doorsteps of where we were going. We had let him know in advance some of the things we wanted to do and he had it all scheduled out when we arrived but was quick to change things around as we wanted. He had little gifts for us to remember our time with him, stopped at roadside stands to show us the local fare and even took us to his home for his girlfriend to make up pepper vinegar out of the local peppers we got. He turned a day trip into an adventure and we can't wait to go back again! Ron became an extended part of our family that day! Could you ever ask for more??

Victor Bodden had by far the best reviews online, and this was our trip of a lifetime so didn't want to take any chances booking with anyone else. The guide assigned to us was Ron Rivers, we had no idea he had his own company, but once we arrived we learned that when Ron doesn't have his own tours booked though his company(Roatan Adventure Tours), he works for Victor. So please everyone out there planning a trip to Roatan, skip the middleman (Victor Bodden) and go straight to Ron. Ron has some of the highest rated reviews among all of Victors tour guides and booking directly with him assures you that you will get a good guide instead of rolling the dice with Victor Bodden. Ron was the most personable native we met at any of our port stops, he was funny and extremely knowledgeable about the island. Our group of 8 had an amazing time, our favorite port stop of all!

Also just a tip if you want to spend some time at a beach (we did for a few hours in the afternoon), the guides will try to take you to Banarama, but before entering & paying there is a public entrance to the beach right past the guard shack where you can just walk on. The guides will try their hardest to get you to stay at Banarama because they get a kickback, but if you insist on going past bananarama, there is a private hotel immediately to your left once you get on the beach. They have nicer chairs, a nice beach bar, is far less crowded and only charged $7pp to use all of their facilities, including a pool!

We had Jeffrie Baley as our driver for the day in Honduras. He was on right on time to meet us coming off our cruise ship. We stopped to play with monkey's for a long time and he took lots of pictures for us. We did the 18 platform zip line at the first stop also. He suggested the beach earlier in the day rather than later, which was a good idea so we could get chairs and an umbrella. He was right there at our agreed upon ending time, and we even stayed later since the weather was perfect. He gave a good commentary on our drive back, and found the cameo factory for us to stop in to look, and even got us some cookies for a snack.
A very pleasant day spent on Honduras.

We booked a tour on line with Victor Boden and got George as our tour guide. He was excellent and took very good care of us for the day. We first went to the zip line at Victor Bodens center and the guides took good care of us to make sure we had fun and did not get hurt. We then toured the monkeys and the birds that they have there. George took us to a great place for lunch where we had grilled sea bass sandwiches that were delicious. We then snorkeled right off the shore by the restaurant. Clear water and lots of fish. We were on a cruise on ncl and he got us back to the boat by 3;00 It was a great day and I would use this tour group again if I am in Roatan again.
