What an amazing time!
We recently went on an around the island boat tour with Amazing Roatan Tours. We had a group of 12 of us including my 5 year old daughter. It was such a fun experience. The boat was beautiful with an awesome stereo system. The captain and crew were fun, personal and experienced. They made sure the entire group had a wonderful time. The lunch of steak and shrimp was to die for. They even made sure to have Tito’s vodka on board for us. They went above and beyond. I highly recommend Amazing Roatan Tours!!!
Penny is Amazing!
Penny had been recommended to us a year ago. We told her our interests and she put together an amazing tour for just the 4 of us. We toured the island, cuddled with sloths, snorkelled French Cay, lunch with a view, and ended with a grocery stop at Eldon's prior to returning to the condo. Penny was born and raised in Roatan, knew it's history and was proud of it. She was knowledgeable, respectful and an all around pleasant person to spend a day with.
Amazing Tour...of Amazing Roatan
I’m so glad a friend had recommended Penny for a tour of the Island. She recommended a couple of great stops and an exceptional snorkel tour. She KNOWS Roatan and is an excellent ambassador for Roatan.

We were Cruising from Miami to the Panama Canal, had a Port Stop in Roatan, Honduras. We spoke with a few tour operators, felt like this company sounded best, and are so glad we took this tour. Our driver and guide, Penny Elwin was born and raised on the island. She was so friendly and knowledgeable, gave us an excellent tour of her home island. We made a leisurely stop at a chocolate factory where we watched the process of turning a cocoa beans into delicious chocolate, then sampled their chocolate bars. Penny then took us to a local rum shop where they made and bottled specialty flavored rums and also made rum soaked cakes. There was a gift shop across the street featuring local artisans where we shopped a bit. From there we went to the gorgeous beach at West Bay where we learned about to Barrier Reef that is there and the care that had been taken to protect it. After touring the area where visitors are building new homes we made a few more photo stops before returning to the Port. We highly recommend Penny as a guide. She had a comfortable, clean, air conditioned van that was fairly new. Her warm and friendly personality made our tour most pleasurable.
Penny is a great tour guide!
Penny took our group on an island tour and beach break, and she even stayed with us while we took a dip in the beautiful water. She treated us like family and shared her special recipe for coconut cake.

We stayed at Bananarama and Amazing Roatan Tours was based out of there. We were introduced to Ramon (Jairo) our first night there and we're so happy for that. We booked a tour for ziplining and the animal sanctuary, and a city tour with stops at the chocolate factory, lighthouse, and rum factory. Ramon was our guide for the day and we let him choose where to go and what to see. We had an absolutely fabulous day with him! We also went out snorkeling for a couple of hours with him one afternoon and it was fabulous snorkeling he took us to. The kids also booked parasailing and jet skiing with them and had a great time. If looking for someone who is knowledgeable about Roatan and knows where to find a fun time, and is so easy to talk to, Ramon is your guy!
No one better!
We've used Penny at Amazing Roatan Tours for several years and we have never been disappointed. We have referred her to several people and each one raved about her. You cannot go wrong by booking this company!!!

Penny was amazing!! She picked us up and we began our day!! We went zip lining, which was so much fun! My daughter loved it and even got to go upside down! Then we visited the monkeys and sloths which were a big hit with our family. When we were ready she tools us to a local beach and put us with the snorkeling people who took us to amazing reef and it was so beautiful! Roatan was definitely our favorite stop on our cruise and we would love to go back! My kids keep talking about how Penny made us feel so comfortable and we felt like family!! I would recommend this company and ask for Penny!! She was amazing!
Amazing island - amazing tour guide
I highly recommend visiting Roatan if you have a chance and I definitely recommend using Amazing Roatan Tours. Orrin was our guide for 5 days on the island. He made us feel comfortable, was an exceptionally safe driver, and took us to spots that only the locals would know about. His friendly and prompt service made our visit to Roatan from golfing, to fishing, to scuba, and secluded beaches memories of a lifetime.
Amazing can't even describe it!
My family visited Roatan in May. We were on the Carnival Breeze. Penny picked us up and our fabulous day began. We drove to the east end of the island. We went to the sloth and monkey habitate and had the best time. One of the monkey had a tug of war with my 22 month old grandson's pacifer. I asked Penny about local craftsman. She took us to Dragon Fly Chocolates. We met the owners and enjoyed chocolate covered bananas and brownie. We shopped in their gift shop for uniquely made items from residents of Roatan. Next we went on a Mangrove tour which was more than I ever expected. The Island of Roatan is unbelievably beautiful! Penny took us to lunch at Gio's for fabulous seafood. My family has decided to repeat this cruise so we can spend more time with Penny and see the entire island. Please do yourself a favor and book a tour with Amazing Roatan Tours. You will not be disappointed!
Amazing Tour and Great Guide
This time we did a family cruise and I wanted my family to see the wonderful island of Roatan. Penny made sure everyone was taken care of. We had ages from 9-74. There was 8 of us. Even one person that was not that mobile. She took us around the whole island and to a nice lunch area. We were on a cruise ship so had to be back on time and we weren't on the island long. But Penny made sure we got all the important parts in and with time to spare and not worried about missing the ship. Due to the fact this would be an independent tour so that was on my mind. Penny made things go right... If you want to go off the standard tours, Amazing Roatan Tours is the way to go.
I have nothing but good things to say about this tour! You get to experience so many things - zip lining, seeing exotic animals, snorkeling, and beach access - for less than $100 per person. Definitely worth the money. Penny was also with us along the way if we needed assistance. She took us to various spots to take beautiful photos and see the best views. I would highly recommend booking for a great excursion in Roatán!
We had such a nice and relaxing day in Roatan. We asked our driver, Penny, to take us only to the zoo and then straight to the beach. She was so pleasant and a great communicator. She gave us options on where to go for lunch and beach and we were so pleased. CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE MOST GORGEOUS WEST BAY BEACH??? Truly spectacular. Thanks for the hospitality Amazing Roatan Tours.
The name says it all - AMAZING!
We had such great time. We didn’t come on a cruse. We came by plane. We were picked up at the airoport. The tour was amazing. A few days later we rented jet ski from them. The prices are very competitive and best of all great service. If you are looking for great time on the island, you should defiantly use their services. If I could rate them 10 stars, I would! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Went on a guys trip last September, booked a tour through Amazing Roatan Tours and they went above and beyond our expectations! The owner Orrin and his mother Penny took us to the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen and the most unique restaurants with food out of this world. I went back this August and again they treated me like family and we are in constant touch back In the states. I will be visiting again in November with my young daughter and wife. I will definitely be seeing them! If you are in Roatan book a tour with Orrin he will not disappoint!
Amazing Roatan Tours.
We had an amazing time in Roatan!! Penny was our guide and made us feel like family!! She was so knowledgeable and took the time to tell us and show us as much as she could during our time together. Roatan was by far our favorite stop on our cruise and we would love to come back. Thank you Penny for an amazing time!
Amazing Roatan Tours.
Our guide was amazing! He brought us everywhere we wanted to go. He knew a lot of history and was knowledgeable. We especially loved seeing the chimps, sloths and parrots. Reasonable priced - all included! Thank you!
The most AAAmazing Roatan experience
From booking online all the way to the cruise ship drop off. We felt VIP as our guide Wilbur took care of us. Our group of 8 never wanted for anything including my 82 year old mother. So knowledgeable and kind! Gios was the best food we had all week make sure to order the Eldon Special great recommendation from our guide. THESE GUYS ARE THE BEST!
I could never praise them enough
Let me first by saying thank you to the whole team. I booked them months before the cruise, and they exceeded my expectation It was our first time in Roatan. We cruise a lot, but have never been to this island .I booked 2 months in advance. They emailed me right before it was time to board my ship about who I would be our tour guide and where to find them (The instructions were good) . As soon as we got to the booth, we were met by an amazing tour guide by the name of Kerest. He was extremely friendly and kind. We assumed we were with a group, but because we booked 2 we had our own private tour. Me and my husband were please right away. We booked the all in one package, because to be honest the price couldn't be beat. They took us to our first excursionof ziplining. Now we have ziplined before, but we were taken by 2 men by the name Mike and Leroy. They were so pleasant and kind. For whatever reason I was scared to go down the first line and they were patient with me. Once I went down it was so much fun (please wear sneakers). After the zipline Leroy took us on a tour to the monkey (My favorite monkey was loco) and sloth sanctuary. We met a bay sloth that was just rescue (If you love animals this is the place). Kerest then took us on our next excursion which was snorkeling with Rotatan Ocean Adventures. This part of the tour was perfect. They gave us tour guides for experience, children and inexperienced swimmers. I had and under water camera and our amazing tour guide who got close to ocean creatures to take photos for us. We saw lobster, lion fish and stingrays. Our final excursion was beach break. It wasn't with the company we snorkel with, but somehow our amazing tour guide got them to change it with them. So our beach break was in Little French key. The amount of food and drinks available to you (at an extra cost) was perfect. It was honestly the best time I've ever had . I Will book them again when we fly in. They are so worth it. They are so knowledgeable about the land and will answer any questions you have. Whatever you do book them, they are worth it
Best Tour Ever!!
The name says it all....Amazing Roatan Tours! We chose not to book excursions with the cruise ship and it was a great decision. A big shout to Penny Elwin for her knowledge of the island of Roatan, for her kindness and recommendation as to where to go. We booked this tour with Penny for a tour around the island. Not only she took us around the entire island explaining all the sites but she also took us to Mayan Jungle for ziplines and to interact with the Capuchin monkeys. Ziplining was a fun and fantastic experience that we'll cherish forever. The staff at the Mayan Jungle were super nice and helpful. It's a great place in Roatan that I highly recommend you to visit. Our group consisted of 10 people (5 couples). Penny picked us up in her 15 passenger A/C van. One of our family member was sick and had severe stomach problems and diarrhea. Penny was so kind and compassionate. She kept stopping at different restrooms. She even took us to a grocery store and bought my sick cousin an all natural Roatan medicine that worked in just few hours. My family and I would like to recommend this company, Amazing Roatan Tours. Once you get to Roatan, they will take care of the rest giving you a memorable adventure. Thank you Penny for a great time and for your patience with my crazy family. We love Roatan and we'll visit again in few years. We'll be booking with Amazing Roatan Tours again.
We were very lucky to meet Kerest Borden. He owns a fleet of vehicle for Amazing Roatan Tours. For a small fee, he drove us personally anywhere we wished to go on the island. He will actually sit and wait for you or set up a pick up time. Whatever you wish to do. He was very knowledgeable about the island and a huge help in helping us figure out where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. Such an amazing experience. Can't say enough good things about this guy. Very cautious and helpful. They are located in the last kiosk on the right as you exit the port. Try it, you won't regret it. So much cheaper and easier than doing a shore excursion with the cruise ship.
I was so overwhelmed with everyone at booths screaming to help us. He is on the very end booth at Roatan honduras he was nice and not pushy and really helped us. he went out of his way to take us around my kids loved the monkey and sloth he recommended.He also took us to the beach and waited for hours in hot sun for us. He really made mine and families trip! These guys are amazing Kerest Borden and Oren Dixon! They were very knowledgeable with any questions we had and so very helpful!
THEE most amazing time!!!
My husband and I had the pleasure of spending the day with Orrin and we immediately felt like he was an old friend. We zip lined, played with monkeys, snuggled with a sloth and had an great lunch at a local spot that he took us to. We opted out of snorkeling and instead drove around the island and talked as Orrin pointed out points of interest. I was celebrating my 50th bday and Honduras was the highlight of our trip. If you are in doubt of what to do in Honduras, just call Amazing Roatan Tours: Its in the name! Thx again Orrin, you rock! Check out the great pic that he posted of the parrot stealing my husbands lunch!
Truly Amazing Tour!!!
I discovered Amazing Roatan Tours while searching the internet, and checked out reviews on Tripadvisor. Our group of 5 cruised on the Norwegian Escape, and were looking for some excursions to do while visiting Roatan, It seemed silly to pay a premium to Norwegian to get a lesser tour. What amazed me is that we were able to do multiple things, for less money than one thing on Norwegian. We ziplined, held monkeys, and sloths, saw other animals as well. We snorkeled off a boat, and we could have gone to a beach, but we decided to try GIOS restaurant, after we asked if we could take a break for lunch. Let me start by saying that not knowing anything about Amazing Roatan Tours made me pause at first. But when Lia emailed me and told me that this would be the highlight of my cruise, little did I know at the time that she would be right! Everything that I had concerns about, wound up not being a problem at all. I could pay a deposit using PayPal, or pay the full balance in advance. I was concerned about paying in advance, but it allowed me to not have to carry cash. I decided to pay in full, and had no problem whatsoever. Lia is so good about answering questions, and confirming reservations and payment, that it made even my concerned self feel at ease. The next concern was how will we find them once we get there, and since ship time doesn't match island time, would they still be there for me. We made our reservation for 10:30am But was that going to be ship time or island time). We left the ship at 10am ship time, and walked straight passed where all the cruise ship people were gathering. We walked through a tunnel where a bunch of tour booths were lined up. We walked passed them, through the guard gate, and waiting on the other side of the street was the sign we were looking for, "Amazing Roatan Tours". We were greeted and awaited our personal tour van. A few minutes later Orrin pulled up and he and his brother spent the day with us, with every detail planned perfectly. It was truly a personal tour, just the 5 of us. They were both very friendly and knowledgeable. We were driven through the local towns and given some local information on our way to ziplining and the zoo. We wondered whether we would just be dropped off and picked up. Not at all, Orrin parked and took us to the check in point, handled all of the arrangements, and waited for us. Since we did not wait with the cruise crowd, we did not have any delays at ziplining. When we were leaving there was quite a crowd of people from our ship. The zoo is also at the ziplining location, I have to admit, I wasn't that interested in this part of the trip when I signed up. It wound up being amazing. Holding a sloth is actually pretty interesting, and having a monkey climb on your shoulder is a moment to remember. We were gone and off to our next adventure before the cruise ship group even started. We asked Orrin for a suggestion on a place to grab lunch. He brought us to a place called Gios (I think that was the name). It was a sit down place right on the water with an amazing view. The food was very good. We had Orrin and his brother join us for lunch, but I don't think that that is expected. We were just really enjoying their company, and heard some more interesting stories during lunch. From there, Orrin took us to a great ROATAN sign for family pictures. Then we were off to snorkeling with Roatan Getaway Tours. This partnership between the two tour companies was terrific. The boat and equipment were new and the tour guides (and owners) were outstanding. As we were returning from snorkeling the guides called Orrin, and he was waiting for us when we returned. Our final concern was would we make it back to the cruise ship in time, and this was also a non issue. We made it back without a problem. We did not go to the beach, as we knew we would be at the beach all day the next day. If you wish to go to the beach, you could avoid lunch, or bring your own food. But I will admit, I liked the lunch on the water. The reason I wrote such a long review is because they deserve it. Amazing Roatan Tours is exactly that, ... AMAZING! Any concerns you may have about booking off the internet with this tour instead of on the cruise ship should go away. We did way more activities, for less money. Plus we didn't have to deal with the big cruise ship crowds. More than any review I have ever done, I recommend Amazing Roatan Tours. Thank you for the highlight of my family cruise!!!!! PS. By the way, Orrin took pictures during the trip, and the snorkeling tour guides took pictures, and both of them sent the pictures to our email,... for FREE! Email to set up your trip with these guys, you are crazy if you don't!!!
Great way to see the island
We chose to not book excursions through the cruise ship and go with the locals, which had booths set up at the port. Kerest was our tour guide, and he was great! We felt safe and were blessed to see the Bay Islands from a local's point of view. We toured Mayak Chocolate, visited a souvenir shop, went zip lining, played with monkeys, birds and a sloth, and ate seafood all at locally owned, non commercialized businesses. Highly recommend.
GREATEST TOUR COMPANY EVER!!!!!!!!!
I know this may sound exaggerated, but it is by far exaggerated. The hospitality that our large group received from Orrin and Penny was just an understatement. This tour company is a Son and Mother team, and by the time you have completed your trip with them, your in love with this family and your now a part of the family. Orrin assisted us weeks in advance to select the right place to visit for our very large group and then accommodated us and made sure we even had a special birthday cake prepared and available to us for our excursion. Who does that? Penny well she is just an amazing lady and has an amazing outlook on life. Anything we wanted, she made sure we had. Roatan was our greatest excursion and it is all because of these 2 people. we will continue to be in contact. We will see them both again. From all of us to you both, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts, down in New Orleans!
A M A Z I N G ! ! !
Experiencing this Roatan tour was truly fantastic, and Orrin made a one of a kind job making it happen! From the genuine service they provide, how much they know about the island, althrough the great talks and all wonderful places they took us to made the highlight of our cruise... I fully recommend them; they are friendly and professional, make you wanna stay longer to continue the fun... Definitely coming back and booking Amazing Roatan tour for another great trip!

The best time in paradise!
We visited Roatan as a port stop on a cruise. Prior to the cruise, we got a high recommendation to book our day in Roatan with Amazing Roatan Tours. From the moment I emailed them, I knew We were in great hands. They listened as I told them the type of experience my family and I wanted to have AND boy did they deliver!!! They brought a car seat for our 3 year old, water and juice for us to have in case we got thirsty. I loved their hospitality and attention to detail. We zip line(d), played with monkeys, took pictures with beautiful birds, had an amazing traditional lunch (see picture) and spent relaxing time at the beach. It was the perfect day in paradise all thanks to our great tour guides Penny and Orrin.
Great Day in Roatan with Penny as our guide!
The excursions were all booked on our cruise ship so we had to wing it when we got off the ship. Talked to the folks in one of the booths outside the main tourist area (crazy area. Lots of people coming at you trying to sell you an excursion) and they set us up with Penny. She was our guide for the whole day. We had wanted to see monkeys and jet ski. She took us to a animal park to pet monkeys and other animals and then to West Bay to Jet ski and hang out on the beach. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She hung out with us the whole day (Not WITH us, but in another area where the guides hangout and read, etc.) so we did not have to worry about a ride. Overall very enjoyable day. Penny was great and I would highly recommend her. Remember "Cash is King" so take cash to pay. Overall it was cheaper to go with Penny than what the excursion cost on the ship.
Great Day in Roatan!
Our day in Roatan, with Penny, was relaxing and enjoyable. She knew exactly where to take our group so that we would have the best experience. It seemed that Penny tailored our day exactly for our group. The weather was cloudy and some of the snorkeling areas were choppy so Penny arranged for us to snorkel off of a different part of the island where we would feel more comfortable. On our way out to the snorkel site we saw a large group of tourists on a charter boat and I felt so thankful that we had found Penny and were able to enjoy a day that was designed just for us. The snorkeling site was beautiful and the boat captain was even willing to assist my 4 year old daughter so that she was able to see the amazing reef below us. Following the snorkeling tour Penny had arranged a free visit to a small interactive zoo for my 4-year old daughter. We were paired with a tour guide named Luke, who was kind and patient with my child. We were able to pet, feed and hold the animals which was very special. Our last stop of the day was to a resort where we were able to relax and enjoy the calm beach. All of the kids in our group had a great time playing in the water and sand and the adults loved being able to lounge in the warm weather.
