Major Tom minor Tom cave tubing.

This was such a fun day out. The caves and scenery were stunning and we leisurely drifted along the river with a beer in hand. Guides were awesome. I could have done it all over!

Cavetubing with Major Tom was an unbeliavable experience. We were a family of 6 on a cruise. We had a private van complete with bottled water and homemade bread pudding. Because of booking privately with him, we were able to have just our tubes tied together and were able to here our guide Mike very easily. We got to experience... More

I didn't actually go cave tubing with Major and Minor Tom. A friend from back home recommended that I should. I was staying at Lower Dover near San Ignacio and its my understanding that Major Tom's outfit runs out of Belize City, with the Jaguar Paw cave tubing location somewhere along the highway in between. Nevertheless I thought that I... More

I contacted the company when they advised to take the earlier tenders because I didn't know what they were talking about. They responded to contact the cruise ship with questions which weren't answered clearly. The cruise ship is out to protect only the excursions that are booked through their ship. We woke up at 630AM and ended up getting the... More

My daughter and I spent a great day with the Toms, cave tubing and then a quick visit to Altun Ha. Both Toms were fun, knowledgeable and a pleasure to hang out with. Major knows his Mayan ancestry and truly enjoyed telling us all about it. Minor took us through the jungle to the river cave at Xibun. He regaled... More

We had a great time with Major Tom and his son (minor tom). Major tom spent our drive out to the caves telling stories, jokes, and pointing out the sites we passed. As for the tour itself, minor tom really worked hard making sure we got the most out of our time. He pointed out dozens of flora during the... More

Three times are a charm! I have done the cave tubing with Major and Minor Tom 3 times starting back in 2007. Both the entrance park and the tour have changed slightly over the years due to popularity, but I can't wait to go back. Major Tom has been both politically and physically involved with the caves, park and the... More

We were on a cruise ship and came to Belize for the day and went on this tour with Major Tom and his son. It was so amazing, fun and wow factor. The guides were excellent. It's quite a long drive to the caves but nice vans took us there. We wore mining lights on our heads and used inner... More
