Wonderful trip!
Mar 2019
We were met by our amazing tour guide Percy who took the time to explain all the details of belize. Cave tubing was wonderful, you're met by two men, one who rents crocs for the day, and one who is selling rum in coconuts. Afterwards you take a small hike to the entrance of the cave. Percy never rushed the hike and explained every detail of the hiking trail, going over the different trees and wildlife. Once in the cave, it was nice to just lounge on the tube. Afterwards we got some amazing burritos and went to Altun Ha ruins, there the Mayan history was explained with the beautiful scenery. Wonderful trip and the company were very professional and made the trip for us.

Fantastic Tour, beats the Carnival excursion hands down! Paul was lots of fun.
Dec 2018 • Family
Our tour guide Paul, (or Laurence, as in Laurence Fishburne, as some people call him) was amazing. He is a native Belizean (??) and shared much of his country's history and his experiences with us. We are fascinated by that kind of stuff so it was fun to hear his stories as he drove us through the city and countryside. He took the 6 of us in a minivan which was clean and comfortable, and most importantly not crammed with 45 other people like the cruise ship buses.

Before departure from the Carnival ship, be sure to arrive early (at least 20 minutes before they say) to the lounge to receive your tender boat tickets. Once off the boat we went to the designated exit from the tourist trap dock and found Paul waiting right outside with a sign with our name. He took us on a short walk to the minivan and we were off to our cave tubing experience.

The cave tubing was so much fun, I can't recommend it enough. Bring a swim suit and you can rent water shoes, which are a necessity, Keens also work well for this.
Be prepared to walk about 20 minutes carrying an inner tube and then plunge into the chilly, and crystal clear river for a brief swim. Paul will tie all of the tubes together, everyone hops in, and away you go into the mouth of hell! (The mayans thought this was an entrance to the underworld.) You are provided with life jackets, helmets, and head lamps so it is very safe, and Paul guided us through the whole way. The experience is amazing and so different than anything I've ever done.

After our tubing adventure was finished and we changed clothes at the very clean bath house we went to a local restaurant where we had a very good, and very authentic lunch. Beans and Rice, and jerk chicken along with amazing potato salad and a small lettuce salad, and fried plantains. My daughter had a bottled "real sugar" Coke and the rest of us had the homemade limeade which was amazing. (Yes it is safe to drink.)

We were running a bit behind, due to our own fault, so Paul high tailed it to the Mayan Ruins. Again, another amazing experience to get to see and climb to the top of the temple of the sun god. I'm glad we didn't miss this!

Paul then drove us back to the dock and got us there in time to catch the next to the last tender. Overall it cost us about the same as an excursion from Carnival but we got to do two things instead of only one, and we had a nice, private experience. Don't forget to bring some cash to tip Paul, or whomever is your driver, and be prepared to get suckered into buying some really nice local trinket souvenirs. The trinket vendors aren't too aggressive and were really just very nice people trying to make a living and were great to visit with.

This Tour is a Great Trip!
We booked this tour last minute and loved it. We did the cave tour first to be ahead of the cruise boats. "The King" was a great guide and shared lots of facts about the caves. We had the caves pretty much to ourselves. Beautiful! Paul took over as our guide after the caves. He drove us to a great and delicious restaurant and on to Altun Ha. There was lots of driving but we expected it. Paul answered our questions along the way and shared with us much of how the Mayans life was like back in the time of when the temples were built. We highly recommend the tour - ask for Paul as your guide.

Tour was amazing and well organized!
Dec 2018 • Family
We booked this excursion independently of our cruise (Carnival Magic) and were a bit worried about timing, but Paul (our guide) was on top of everything and got us back in plenty of time. We disembarked much earlier than anticipated and got to the meeting point an hour early. A Belize tourism official immediately contacted the tour company for us and Paul was there within ten minutes. He was friendly and courteous and didn't seem at all put out that we were almost an hour early. We especially appreciated the fact that he was very patient with our kids (6 and 8 ), who were full of questions. He knows the caves like the back of his hand and was a wonderful guide both there and at Altun Ha. Lots of driving to get to both locations but Paul was informative and entertaining during the drive, while also giving us privacy and quiet time when needed. Can't speak highly enough of the experience!

Fun Day, Lots of Driving, Bring Mosquito Repellent
Aug 2018 • Friends
There were 3 of us on this private tour. Everything is about an hour drive away, so there was a lot of driving during the day. We were picked up at our hotel in Belize City, drove to the Cave, had lunch, then drove to Altun Ha before we returned to Belize City. Don't miss the cave - it was magical. No one else was around us and it was pitch dark for part of the tour. You also take a very nice stroll through the jungle to get to the starting point of the river. Altun Ha was very nice, we could have spent more time here but to be honest it was extremely hot and there were tons of mosquitoes. Our driver was terrific, he was informative and on time. He even made an unplanned stop that we requested. I highly recommend this tour company, and both Altun Ha and Cave Tubing.

Paul's office can't be beat! 😊
Our guide, Paul picked us up promptly at our hotel for our private tour. We drove to Altun Ha first and learned all about the Mayan culture as Paul was very knowledgeable. We climbed to the top and he took our picture. This is a site not to be missed! As we drove through Belize, Paul was very informative and answered all our questions. We stopped at a little roadside restaurant for some great chicken, rice/beans and salad. Service was very prompt and the food was tasty! We went cave tubing after that. It's about a 30 minute walk to get to the cave where you start. Paul was very good at getting us started before the crowd. The journey through the caves is that of a "lazy" river and the sights inside the cave are breathtaking. Paul gently guided us along the way either walking alongside our tube or paddling us along. The journey through the cave reminds you of an Indiana Jones movie. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We have done a lot of excursions and this by far was the best!! You won't want to miss this! We definitely would do this trip again. Thanks again Paul!

Great time!
This was a great way to spend a day! Started off with a tour through the ruins with our guide, who was very friendly and knew his history about the area. The tour itself was shorter than I expected but the site was still amazing to visit! Afterwards we stopped at a restaurant for lunch and then headed for cave tubing. Water was pretty low during our time there but still relaxing enough to float through. Floating through the rain forest was a beautiful experience. We started at 8am and were done by 2pm. Although it was shorter than I thought it was still a great way to spend time in the country, especially if you want to do something else later on.

Great fun!
Mar 2018 • Couples
We had an excellent experience. Paul, our guide, was very nice and knowledgeable. He took us to the cave tubing and ziplining first to avoid the cruise ship crowds. We changed into our swimsuits and water shoes (essential: you can rent water shoes), then walked along paths and across streams to get to the caves. Afterward, we did the ziplining. After a delicious lunch at a nearby restaurant, we went to Altun Ha. We're very interested in archeology, and Paul told us all about the temples and Maya culture. It was a terrific day!

Amazing Experience!
Jan 2018 • Family
Percy was our guide and he was fantastic. We got an early start and headed to do the cave tubing part of the day first, so we avoided a lot of the crowds. On the way, he pointed out many trees and parts of Belize. The cave tubing was truly spectacular and we felt very comfortable with Percy leading us on the trail and through the caves. Then, we headed to Altun Ha after a quick lunch. Again, we were so fortunate that many of the crowds were leaving as we lingered at the site. We were able to take some great pictures and enjoy the tranquil setting of the ancient site as Percy told us many interesting facts about the structures and community. Overall, we had a truly great experience with Percy and Private Belize Adventure. I highly recommend them!
