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

We booked Tikal and ATM through Pacz Tours. Both tours were very well organized, on-time and tour guides were just awesome. they take care of everything that is needed on the tour, just need to show up. 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

We went on the ATM tour 12/25/2014 and I would not recommend it. On the PACZ tour we spent over 3 hours standing in cold water waiting for the early groups to pass by exiting or slow groups in front of us to move on. Once we reached the end and turned around we were able to exit quickly. It... More

I have worked 15 years in tourism in Utah and I have worked with many many guides over the years. Francisco is one of the best guides I've ever met. His passion for what he does will guarantee you a wonderful experience. He knows his native Belize like the back of his hand and is generous in the way he... More

We spent the better part of a day with PACZ, visiting ATM cave. Francisco picked us up from our accomodations in neighbouring Bullet Tree Falls and provided us with a very passionate, funny, enlightening day from there on. Francisco was very informative on the drive over to ATM, speaking a lot about the history and geology of Belize. At ATM... More

I payed several hundred dollars to do an ATM Cave tour with this group in January 2015 with my girlfriend. They did not tell us after we bought the tickets that we would be split into different groups (that was the only way they could fit us in). They failed to tell us this crucial piece of information UNTIL we... More
