John L.United States
Steve really seemed to have it all together personally as well as professionally. The only problem was the initial pick up location. It is apparently a local requirement that keeps independent guides off the Port property. There was a pretty good hike to reach him. Going back he was allowed to take us on property. HE WAS WORTH THE TROUBLE. Communication were no ptoblem. He was liked not only as a guide, but was respected as a person as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr John am so glad you all enjoyed the tour it was such a pleasure to serve you and I hope to see you again some day soon. Until then thank you and God bless
Lisa RaigozaUnited States
Steve provided a great tour for us. He showed us the real Roatan and is very knowledgeable about the history. We would definitely use him again when we visit!
Robert ButterfieldUnited States
Mr. Bush provided a good description about the island and the various sites we encountered. For lunch, we stopped at a place where he gave us the option to leave if we didn't approve, but it turned out to be very nice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review I am happy to know you enjoyed your tour. Hope to see you again in the near future, I wish you and your family nothing but the best. Take care and God bless you Sincerely STEVE
Judy C.United States

Michelle BrownUnited States
Steve was great, as was his assistant, Richard. They took us all over the island, and even though it was raining, we made the best of it. Steve was very knowledgeable and even stopped the van to get us some lychees to try when I asked him what they were. We opted for a local lunch (it was delicious!) and to go to the monkey park. Well worth the $10! We got to go into the cage with monkeys and even held a sloth! Great guide, you won't be disappointed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Michele for taking time to write this review, it really means a lot to me, I had a wonderful day showing you our beautiful island and sharing our history and culture. Hope to see you again soon, until then Cheers!!! Merry Christmas and happy new year ��
William HurdUnited States
Steve Bush is a wonderful guide, such a friendly guy. He knows so much about Roatan. We learned a lot. His vehicle was in very good condition too. Going to his house and meeting his son and brother was a highlight of the trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr William am glad to know you enjoyed the tour, hope to serve you again soon. Until then best wishes STEVE
Linda TownsleyUnited States
Arthur was friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to exactly what we needed to do with 2 seniors, 1 adult and 2 teens. The tour was well tailored to us. Just perfect! My only reasons for not giving 5 stars was that #1. It was very difficult to find Arthur. He did not have a sign and we had to ask like 6 people to direct us to him when you left the ship and cruise area. #2.His car really had no working seat belts. That is important to me. We would use him again and recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review sure means a lot to us and I will do all to consider your recommendations . Hope to serve you again soon until then best wishes and Fod bless Steve
Robert QuistUnited States
Steve was wonderful, charming, spoke excellent English, and very knowledgeable. This was not our first visit to Roatan; however, Steve with his enthusiasm made it the best. With him, we saw and visited areas that we would have never found on our own, including his home neighborhood. Best Roatan Guide ever. I would use him again, in a heartbeat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Robert for this marvelous review makes me so proud to know that my best that I put in every tour I do is appreciate and value. I enjoyed so much spending the day with you all and I hope to serve you again in the near future until then best wishes and Good luck in life and work !!! Steve
Stephen KlesiusUnited States
He took us to the gardens as we asked, picked us up and took us to a place were he knew there were birds. The location was excellent and he was very helpful. The only mix up was for the time (but we figured it out). The confirmation said to start at 9 am But was ES or MT time. Roatán is on MT time so it was 8am there. We went out at 8:15 and were ready to wait as needed. But having his number we were able to call him and soon met up with him. In the future you should specify the time zone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the time and for your suggestions we will take it into consideration. I had a great time hope to serve you again in the near future Steve
Monica BrasseauxUnited States
We took a private tour with Steve as our guide. He was so accommodating and took us anywhere we wished. We had the pleasure of getting to know him on a personal level during our day and I can honestly say that he is a wonderful person who actively gives his time to the children in his community. We very much enjoyed the iguana park, monkey park and glass bottom boat tour! We will definitely be trying to book with Steve again on our next cruise to Roatan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Monic for your encouragement and I am delighted that you enjoyed your visit hope to serve you again in the near guys it until then may God bless you and your wonderful family Steve
Carole TalanUnited States
You will find no better guide than Steve. His family has been on this island for generations and he takes great pride in his community. He is knowledgable, friendly and fun. English is his first language but he speaks fluent Spanish too. We met two of his 3 sons and his daughter. He invited us into his home for a fruit drink and to see the community where he lives. He has a soccer program that keeps young boys in school and playing soccer. 25% of his income goes to this effort. He is a great guy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review for sure I had a wonderful day with you all and I hope to serve you again soon please know now that you have a friend in Roatan your extended island family:) Thank you again God bless Steve
Myra CourtneyUnited States
Steve did a great job with our tour of Roatan. We had 12 friends in our party and dividing the cost made it very economical. The day our ship docked it was raining and continued most of the day. When others were getting soaked at the different venues we were comfortable and dry in the 14 passenger van. Steve took us first to his home for rum punch and a look at his work with local youth, then we toured the island and got an excellent view of the history and cultural aspects of Roatan.
Samuel NordUnited States
Steve was cordial and helpful in considering our mobility needs. His tour of the island was satisfactory. However, we were very unhappy when we found that what we had anticipated as a private tour actually included four other persons who had made arrangements with him through another tour service. We strongly feel that TBL should be aware of this practice and should discourage it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank-you for your review, I am glad you enjoyed your tour. I apologize that my family came along as well, this was a last minute arrangement and I have learned that this is not acceptable in the future. Tours By Locals will issue you a partial refund for this inconvenience
Richard GummUnited States
Steve was great. Got us to the monkey-butterfly park, zipline, and beach and back to boat. All quality tours. The animal park was operated in an environmentally sensitive manner and the zipline is not to be missed. Do the longer line--worth the money.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a wonderful time meeting you all I hope to serve you again in the near future it's been a pleasure to serve you see you soon.
Sara WolfUnited States
Five out of five stars. This was an excellent tour and I'd try to meet up with Steve again if I make another trip to Roatan. He was a great guide, and we really enjoyed his tour. We saw much of the island we didn't expect to see, and the real neighborhoods of the folks who live there. Just what we were looking for.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sara I also enjoyed meeting you and wish you all the best to come and hope to serve you again soon take care and remember you have a friend now in Roatan Thanks again God Bless.. Steve
James S.United States

Jon L.Dorena, OR, United States
Steve was right where he said he would be, and the adventure began! The tour was exactly what I had imagined, and more. Steve set the stage with the history, recent and remote, of Roatan. As we toured the island, he pointed out remarkable landmarks, stopping if we wanted photographs. We enjoyed a delicious lunch, far from the madding crowd. He invited us to his humble abode to meet family. We left feeling a sense of connection with Roatan. Thank you so much, Steve. It was incredible!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are so welcome Jon I had a wonderful time and like I said you now have a friend in Roatan and I hope to serve you again the the near future God bless and give my best regards to the others Your island friend Steve

John McMullenUnited States
I cruised with my 11 year old niece last week and hired Steve for an island tour. The morning of our tour we were met by Steve's brother, Johnathan. Steve went in the hospital the previous night and had asked Johnathan to cover. I am so grateful that not only were we not left stranded with no tour, but that we had a fantastic guide. We saw iguanas, monkeys, and macaws; went snorkeling and shopping; and had delicious smoothies. My niece told me that she couldn't imagine any guide being better.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Charyl for your wonderful review and am so glad you ha a wonderful time I am doing much better health wise, hope to serve you again in the near future Thanks and God bless
Andrea AndresenUnited States
Steve is a very dedicated and passionate individual who loves his country and community. Very knowledgeable about the island and it's people. We enjoyed his guidance of the area and he took us to an excellent place for lunch, hidden away but excellent food. Enjoyed meeting his family and learning about his personal passion-education of local children through soccer programs. Would for sure recommend Steve to anyone going to Roatan and would take another trip with him in the future. We loved the Island.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Andrea for the time to write this wonderful review i hope to serve you in the near future and i sure enjoyed showing you i beautiful island hope to see you again until then best wishes. Steve
Nathan MillerUnited States
Steve and staff were born and raised on Roatan and know every fantastic view, local eatery, perfect snorkeling spot, and interesting site on the island. We had an amazing time at the monkey preserve, snorkeling, and visiting Johnathan's aunt's house for a horseback ride that was the highlight of our vacation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much my friend i sure hope to see you again in the near future until then i wish you all the best and all the success you deserves Gracias amigo
Brian BowenUnited States
This tour was everything we could have asked for. Steve provided us with clear instructions on where to meet once we arrived in Roatan and took special care to make sure that we had the "local" experience. Thank-You
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank very much I am glad you ha a wonderful time hope to serve you again in the near future good look and see you again sometime in the near future Steve
Steve was very personable and did exactly as we asked. He had planned what we had requested and adapted to us as we went along. The vehicle was clean and in good order. We had a most wonderful day. Many thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much to the Hunters I had a wonderful day as well I was my pleasure to serve and I do hope to see you again In the near future until then Good luck best wishes God Bless.... Steve
Scott HarrisUnited States
Look no further...Steve's the best in Roatan. I booked Steve through ToursByLocals for a family excursion to Roatan during our recent cruise. Let me say our family talked about our day with Steve and his son Joshua for the remainder of our cruise. I will also say that Steve's price is extremely fair and actually probably lower than it should be. I was initially concerned because we had 12 family members, some older and some younger. Steve was supportive and we did activities to satisfy all.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Scott my friend we had a glorious time thank you for this wonderful review i was more than honored to have received your family and had them do this tour we will never forget such a wonderful time hope to see you again in the near future and remember its all about you ejoying after all its vacation and fun. THANKS...
Highlight of our trip in the Caribbean, even though we had bad weather. Except for the miscommunication about our meeting point, and rain which delayed our tour by 1 1/2 hr, every thing went smooth after. Steve was very friendly, informative and accommodating. He made suggestions to adapt our trip to weather conditions. We went to the Iguana Farmhome town and gave us information on living conditions of locals, Anthony Key Resort/RIM, and West Bay for snorkelling. We will book through ToursByLocals again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pham for choosing us I and so contented that you have a great time hope to see you again in the near future. Until then God bless steve
