As a result she felt awful and offered us a free Paradise Island tour. We rebooked the buggy and also the island. We did the buggy tour which was so... More

I was on one-day trip to Haiti with Mel Tours. Many thanks to Georges - very professional, calm and easy guide and our driver - Pedro ! Georges knows people everywhere ( in Haiti too) . We felt very safe and sound with him during our private trip

So much fun!!! We did the funny buggy tour, it's a great ride through the sugar cane fields, forest and village. There's a lot of horse/cow crap on the road, so it became our goal to avoid the crap lol, but there's a nice stop at an unexploited beach where you can wash yourself in the water. I strongly recommend... More

We use Mels Tours everytime we go to Sosua. Their office was across the street from our Hotel (Casa Marina) So we cut out the middleman & paid a fairer price for our tours. They picked us up at designated time, gave extra tours if time permitted & we had a blast with our drivers. They were knowledgable & friendly,... More

Not a lot of people knew this existed ; information about the tours that are available can be gained from the blue hut on the beach, or the Plaza Gift shop on the opposite end of the beach. There are the same tours that Thomson sell but cheaper. We decided to organise ourselves as we didn't want to be tied... More

The lady who runs her business knows how to do business with a big heart. She responded to my inquiry promptly and offered flexibility for my group. Plus, it is just 50 meters from Casa Marina resort where I stayed 7 days there this Christmas season.
