Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgeable about both the caves that we tubed in and Altun Ha. He also knew to get to the caves before the cruise ship tours arrived. He knew local artists and vouched for them and had a great recommendation for lunch. We had such a good time!

Paul was a fantastic guide, and we had a great time on this excursion. Unfortunately, our cave tubing experience was canceled due to weather, but Paul pivoted quickly and we visited the Howler Monkey Reserve which was much better than I anticipated. The monkey climbed down out of the trees and onto our shoulders. We were supposed to do Altun Ha first, but Paul noticed the weather pattern and changed plans so that we were able to accomplish both experiences with little rain. Altun Ha was beautiful. Paul showed us around and discussed the history. We also go to try some Governor's plums. Finally, we stopped at a small restaurant on the way back that was great. I had some stewed chicken, beans, and rice that may have been my favorite meal on the trip.

This was a remarkable experience. We cruised in, got off late, the company reached out to us (even though we were unreachable thanks to the horrible Wi-Fi on the ship) and even waited for us!! We were so thankful they were still available to take us on our journey. Paul was our guide. He was everything and more the other reviewers talk about. He showed us his Belize, we went to Altun Ha, Cave tubing, and stopped at Amigos for lunch it was the most enjoyable day!

I gotta be honest, I did not know what to expect. I really didn’t believe the reviews as being legitimate but I gotta say that it was all true. I’m not a person who normally leaves a review but I felt compelled to speak highly of our trip. Ellsworth was awesome especially considering how late we got to the port. Please do everything possible to be on the first transport, you will remember me when you rushing all over the place. Ellsworth was super funny and very informative. Always asked ya how we were doing and if we had a great time. The tubing is a once in a lifetime experience so I highly recommend it. This specific tour has you going in two opposite directions so please leave early so you can take your time at the ruins. When we go back we will be requesting Ellsworth to guide us to other awesome adventures!

Our tour guide was amazing! He picked us up right from the cruise terminal and made sure we were back on time (something we were worried about). It was a private tour for just my husband and I. Cave tubing was awesome and the ruins were fantastic. If I did it again, I would want to spend longer cave tubing and skip the ruins (although if we hadn't seen the ruins, I would have always wondered what they were like and if we missed out). It was a lot to pack in to the hours we had, so our tour guide even picked up lunch and let us eat it in the car to save time. I can't rave enough about what a great experience this was! It was my favorite of our shore excursions durin our seven day cruise.

First of all "Private Belize Adventure" is exactly what you'll get. My group of 3 met our guide "PAUL" outside the Carnival Cruise terminal early Paul said to go out to the Cave Tubing first. During the drive Paul explained areas we were driving through. He is a wealth of knowledge, and had answers for every question about the area. His van was nice comfortable, roomy and clean.
Once we arrived to the Cave area, we were the 1st. tour "awsome". Paul assured us our property could be left in his locked van without worry. Several open air shop owners know Paul and guard the vehicles. Paul said theft would hurt the shop owners so they are extra watchful.
Once we collected our equipment we hiked out to the start point. It was a beautiful nature walk, crossing the river a coulple of times got us use to water temp.Then the Tubing began. unbelivablely quite calm, nature at it best. once inside it's just unlike anything else. This tour group goes past the caves into the open river too. Paul escorted us through the caves and provided us additional information.
We then saw the larger tour groups once we ended. Groups of 50 to 100. must have been at lease 5 groups bus loads.
Things to Remember:
Get off the ship as early as possible. wake up early and get on the first tenders. Bring a change of clothes there are changing rooms, Cell phone is good with water proof holder. Water Proof BUG spray for hike to start point. Be early Be first, you'll thank me.

Altun Ha Mayan site, this was 2nd on the tour. To my suprise Paul paid for all entrance fees(Part of the package). The place was not very busy, and Paul provided information and guided us over the entire site. We could even walk to the tops of the temples, awsome views. it is not very big so you can see everything in about 30 minutes.
There are plenty of shops at both locations of you want to spend more money and there are places to buy food. Since our tour covered two activaties we decided not to eat lunch and just get back to the ship. Take snackes or get food to go, this port is a short stay. And we didn't want to be late, Paul assured us it would not be a problem.
I Recommend this tour, you can ZIP Line any where in the world, But Cave Tubing and Mayan temples are not seen to often
Paul is the best, could not ask for a better guide, he really cares and makes sure you feel comfortable, and enjoy the tour. MUST do in Belize.

This excursion package is well worth booking. The cruise we were on did not offer this package of tubing in combination with the ruins. This private company went above and beyond to provide this as a possibility! Our guide was excellent and had us back to our ship in perfect timing. We met up with one family for the cave tubing, but we had our own private guide the rest of the day at the ruins just my husband and I. We highly recommend this for anyone that wants to have an adventure and learn about the Mayan history. We would do this excursion again!

Top notch company! We had such a great time with Paul. He met us right away outside Terminal 1 off our ship and off we went! We were all by ourselves at the Altun Ha ruins thanks to an early start. Tubing was wonderful too. Provided lunch and location was superific. Got us back to our ship in time after a full day of awesomeness. So much better than an overcrowded ship excursion.

My husband, 3 adult children (ages 22-25), and I spent the day with Paul on 5/29/19. We were on the first tender of the morning from our cruise ship as recommended, and went to straight to Altun Ha. He spent the majority of the drive sharing his vast knowledge of historical and current Belizian facts, and the time went by quickly. He timed our arrival so that we missed the big crowds from the cruise ships, and we nearly had the entire ruins site to ourselves. Climbing the ruins is physically demanding, but worth the effort--the views from the top are amazing!! We then headed off to the cave tubing site, which was by far the coolest thing we have ever done as a family--Paul was an excellent guide through the caves, and again very informative along the journey. We stopped for lunch at one of Paul's favorite local spots, the Teaky Tavern (yes, that's how it is spelled), and had great local food at an inexpensive price. We then headed back to the tender dock in Belize City after an incredible day. I highly recommend this tour, and especially this tour guide. We will definitely use Paul again upon our next trip to Belize!

Going on a private tour is the way to go. Our guide, Ellsworth did a great job. Even better considering that our ship was late in getting us into port.
The cave tubing was so much fun... this is definitely something that you shouldn't miss.
Between Altun Ha and the tubing, Ellsworth filled us in on a lot of Belize history and what life is like in Belize. It was very interesting.
For our lunch, he stopped at this little obscure place on the side of the road. Then he brought out our lunch of chicken and rice in takeout containers. OMG! This was about the BEST chicken that I have ever had, anywhere, in the world! It was so tender and succulant and flavorful. We were really surprised.
The nice thing about this trip is that we got to do two unique things and that type of excursion was not available through Carnival. Most tours have the tubing and zip lining. We can do zip lining most anywhere, but to see Mayan ruins AND do river tubing in one excursion is great.
Also, being a private tour, it was so nice to have just the four of us and the guide and not have to worry about the needs of a bus load of strangers..
