My husband and I took a private tour to Tikal — van to the Guatemalan border, guide through crossing, another van to Tikal, close to three hours in the park, lunch on the way back. Our guide, Hugo, was great, and we really enjoyed visiting many of the sites within the park. It was a great experience. One thing is... More

I visited Actun Tunichil Munkal (ATM) with PACZ tours. I would encourage any able bodied person to visit this site. Even if you are nervous, step outside of your comfort zone and take in this amazing experience. PACZ made the experience very easy and streamlined. Their prices are competitive and their staff very helpful & friendly. Our guide was very... More

I loved this tour. It was much more than I expected, in a wonderful way. Walking through the jungle, seeing the opening of the cave and then getting to the site of the artifacts. All worth the drive and money. So glad I didn't leave Belize without doing this!

We visited ATM with Francisco on 4/3/15. Of course, the star of the day was the amazing cave itself and the Mayan artifacts. Our experience was vastly enhanced by Francisco. His knowledge and passion made this a safe and exciting tour. Not a single safety incident, despite all the rushing water, multiple sharp rocks, slippery slopes and vertical climb to... More

I am overall very pleased with my experience with PACZ Tours. We did ATM, Tikal (day trip), and cave tubing. Each experience was incredible - such amazing natural and historical beauty. We had Francisco for ATM, Hugo for Tikal and Hilberto for cave tubing. All guides were exceptional - knowledgeable and easy to get along with. The only reason I... More

This is one of the best things I have done on vacation. Our guide, Martin, was great and a lot of fun with good insight into the Mayan culture. Don't miss this if you are in Belize!

PACZ is the San Ignacio tour company used by Tucan Tours. Now I don't want this review to take away from the ATM tour which was great and which I will review separately. I do want to comment on the tour agent. When fifteen potential clients show up, I would think you would cater to their needs a bit better.... More

Went on the cave tubing tour and wish I'd spent my $90 elsewhere. It was a really long day and pretty boring. I was expecting adrenaline & excitement but it was boring and I couldn't wait to go home. There are no Rapids and parts of the river were more like a lake where we had to paddle our way... More

For Tikal, Hugo (our tour guide) made the trip very enriching experience. Very friendly and knowledgeable. the tour was nicely organized with lunch... More

We had good tours with Pacz tours while in San Ignacio. I booked the tours far in advance, scheduling them via email and pre-paying for both our tours (the emails were short and to the point, which was fine). My husband and I did the ATM tour and had an amazing guide who was working on his PhD in Archeology... More
