If you are coming to the Cayo District, then you must book a tour with Elias (owner of the company) or one of his great guides. We took the Tikal tour and the ATM Cave tour with Elias and both were incredible experiences. At Tikal, it was just us two with Elias, and at ATM it was us and another... More

Elias was great with us. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids Under 12. We took the ATM tour first. Elias took great care with the kids. We then took the Tikal trip with him. The kids only speak french. We did not ask, but Elias found a french tour guide for us. We had so much fun... More

We had a great time with Elias. He was great and very professional in every possible area, from the first email to the time he dropped us off at the airport. All of our emails for making our trip arrangements were answered promptly and completely. Elias quoted us prices (which were cheaper than the others) and never asked for deposit... More

If you ever decide to go to Belize I will recommend you to take ATM and Tikal tours with K’Atun Ahaw Elias Cambranes. Already 10 days passed when I back from San Ignacio, but I steel have all positive emotional inside of me after ATM cave and Tikal touts. It was unbelievable. If you go with Elias you feel save...

My wife and I had the great pleasure of having Elias from K'atun Ahaw Tours guide us through ATM and Tikal. His knowledge, humor, experience, and cultural understanding made what would have beeg great trips into amazing excursions into history with insights that I wouldn't have noticed. He brought both experiences alive for us and the other people on our... More

Everything went great. My initial e-mail was responded to, dates reserved for ATM caves and Tikal, without deposit (Mid May, 2013). Arrived at my hotel and called the day before as a "check-in", arranged to be picked up the next morning at my Hotel for the ATM trip. Picked up on time both mornings. Lucky for us, my wife and...

Elias gave our family wonderful, personable, and knowledgeable tours of both Tikal and Flores. He answered all of our questions thoughtfully, with grace and charm (although he's probably heard most of the questions thousands of times before!). He understands the history, culture, flora, and fauna of the area and could point out a variety of uses of the rainforest plants.... More

My fiance and I visited San Ignacio at the end of February. We knew we wanted to explore Tikal and visit Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) cave, and emailed many different Tour Operators in San Ignacio beforehand. We found good rates and rapid, complete responses to inquiries from Elias, who started K'atun Ahaw after working in the tour industry for twenty... More

I must say that Elias and his team made my trip one of the most memorable experiences ever! It was my first time traveling to Central America so it was a bit daunting figuring out what to do and how to get from point A to point B. Elias made it a breeze for us. He took us under his... More
