Charlie's Tours are very educational, ecological-oriented and adequate for school kids and students of all ages. Charlie offers an excellent ecological tour on the trails just prior to having to tube through the mysterious caves where the Maya priests once prayed to and worshiped the Gods of the Underworld. At Charlie's Cave Tubing we cater especially to our Eco-friendly guests. We are very serious about the conservation and preservation of the caves. We are sure you will find this a very relaxing and pleasant experience.

I would not book with any other company after cave tubing with Charlies. They took us on a very, educational hike through the jungle and then took us through two caves! It was absolutely beautiful. While a lot of other people were in groups of 12, we were in a small group and got a more personalized tour. After the... More

I can not commend "super Charlie Chan" enough. His knowledge of all things Maya is second to none. As it is he is a ancestral maya himself. Take his tours any of them to be educated and laugh. He is funny and took us even while his son was at a soccer tournament. Can't say enough good thungs about Carlos... More

I can not rave enough about this tour experience. We were picked up at the Belize City Water Taxi by Brian (one of Charlie's sons). He greeted us upon arrival. Brian was extremely informative in telling us about Belize's culture, etc. We arrived in low season so the cave site was somewhat quite. There were still lots of cruise tours... More

During a week-long stay in Belize, there were only a few activities/restaurants I made sure to go out of my way to review. Charlie Chan's is one. We were met at the Philip Goldson Airport by Charlie's son Brian who took me and my wife out on a private full-day inland adventure. We started with a tour of the Mayan... More

Very glad we went with Charlie (Carlos). Family-run business, by Charlie and his sons. We had one of the sons, "Chap", who did a marvelous job. He and his family are native Mayan, who live in a very traditional community about 60 miles North of Belize City (that's a long commute). On the hour-long drive to the national park, Chap... More

We were picked up at the dock by Charlie's son, Brian. He was an excellent guide. He gave us great info about the history of Belize on the jounrney and was very very well informed. Once we arrived at the park we did the zip line through the forest. Even our 6 yr old was brave enough and enjoyed. Brian... More

Great communication via email with Charlie prior to booking a tour. My boyfriend and I ended up booking a private tour that included zip lining, cave tubing, and Altun Ha (Mayan ruins). His son, Chap, joined us as well. We arrived off the water taxi about 45 minutes later than scheduled and were very appreciative that they still waited for... More

Charlie's is a family run venture with his sons working for him. Charlie was on time, right where he said he would be. We got off much faster than the official excursions and other tour groups that have to fill a bus. We got to the cave tubing park (that every group goes to) before a lot of the large... More

I booked Charlie's Cave Tubing after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and not wanting to pay the overpriced excursions through Carnival. We were not disappointed! Charlie met us as we excited the port in Belize and we rode with another family in an air conditioned van to the cave tubing location. Along the way we had a "city tour",as Charlie... More

My wife and I recently went to Belize and wanted to see some Mayan ruins and do a bit of cave tubing. We were not part of a cruise group or anything. I emailed Charlie asking questions about the trip and cost and was delighted to have an actual response back. We stayed in touch and when the day came... More
