We went on two different day tours - one with Major Tom and one with Minor Tom (father and son guides). Our first tour was to Lamanai. It was a long drive from our water taxi in Belize City (where Major Tom picked us up) and we were completely entertained the entire way. Major Tom explained history, politics, geography, flora...

Major and Minor Tom were great guides and drivers. They were very organized and the guides we had on their tours were super knowledgeable about the sites. We went to Xunantunich and Cahal Pech with them and then ended up booking a second tour of zip lining, cave tubing, and the Belize zoo because Minor Tom recommended it. The local... More

We went on a tour last week from Caye Caulker Belize to the Major Tom tour and had a fabulous first rate trip. They picked us up at the boat dock and welcomed us and were very professional and safe. We had a great day and learned a great deal about the Mayans and life in Belize. They were both... More

This father/son duo made this excursion worthwhile. Both Major and Minor Tom were extremely knowledgeable about Belizean history and culture. If you're planning on cave tubing, touring the ruins, and/or ziplining in Belize City, you should absolutely go with the Toms!

Major Tom and Alex were great guides. My boyfriend and I were able to contact him as soon as we got to Belize city and went on a tour the very next day. We did cave tubing plus a visit to the Mayan Ruins of Altun Ha. Major Tom is great and very knowledgable about everything. Highly recommend him and... More

We booked with Major Tom through his son, Minor Tom who is the assistant manager at our hotel. It was overall a great experience, starting at Altun Ha and then zip lining and cave tubing. We also stopped for mangos from a sidewalk vendor and delicious dinner. He and his assistant, Alex, were super fun and helpful. Major Tom is... More

Because of recent rains we were not able to go cave-tubing with Major Tom. The Zip Line was fantastic, however, and Major Tom took us to the Mayan ruins instead of the cave. He was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and flexible and treated us very well. He bought fresh mangos for us as well as another treat and made... More

Our trip was organized by Major Tom and his excellent team of tour guides. They were waiting for us at Belize port as they said, early am (make sure to take the first tender off). Major Tom left us in good hands with Blas who took us for an incredible tour of Belize and private tour of Altun Ha Mayan... More

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
