Becareful if restricted abilities
Feb 2020 • Friends
When we booked this tour we were informed it was wheelchair accessible. NOT
You have to somehow get into a little boat, fishing boat size, bobbing up and down in the Caribbean Sea. You have to go across the sea to get to the river. We had to leave three people behind due to the ability to get into the boat.
The boat ride down the river was interesting we did see a lot of wildlife
Then we transferred to a van. The driver was reckless. Driving 70 miles an hour weaving in and out of traffic, down very unsafe roads. It was like being on a 45 minute roller coaster ride from hell
I seriously considered finding another way back from the ruins.
It will be a tour I will never forget, but not for the right reasons
Our people that got left behind did not get a refund. Actually when asked at the ruins if they were brought by bus, the guide actually did not realize they were not on the tour. Very unprofessional they did lot even keep count

TOTALLY UNRELIABLE COMPANY
Jan 2020 • Family
I would not even consider using this tour company again if it were free. After waiting over an hour for our tour to start, we were told that not enough people signed up for the tour, and they were canceling it. Many excuses were given while we waited that hour for the tour. We were led on by Splash Wave while they tried to get more people to sign up. In the end, we wasted over an hour in port, and had to scramble to find something else to do. Extremely dishonest and untrustworthy company!

Amazing Tour and the Best Guide Ever
Jan 2020 • Couples
Last week we were in Belize City and took the Altun Ha and River Wallace tour. Chris was our guide. As we reflected on our week long cruise, we couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful Chris made our excursion. His knowledge, care, and compassion made our tour very special.

I will highly recommend Splash Wave Tours to others and specially mention that Chris is the best guide ever.

Great tour and tour guide !!
Nov 2019
Due to a late arrival by our cruise ship, we missed the departing time for our originally scheduled tour. However, the tour guide (Chris) from Splash Wave tours that we found was more than willing to help us out. They honored the reservation and substituted the Altun Ha tour instead. We ended up with one other couple and had a great time. Chris even made arrangements for a ride down the river, that wasn't part of the original tour. He went above and beyond the call of duty. We had a great time! I would definitely recommend Splash Wave Tours to any one visiting Belize

Great tour
Aug 2019
This company was GREAT. Attention to detail. We scheduled a tour and due some late night parting everyone (other passengers) cancelled at the last minute but the company ended up keeping the tour just for us which was AMAZING because it was private and they tailored it to the tow of us.

We have a nice AC van and because people cancelled late we missed the river portion so they offered us a bamboo sanctuary and lunch as part of our tour.

The ruins were GREAT! Only one other person was there so if REALLY felt like a private tour. No rude tourist in our pictures which was GREAT! WE were offered cold water which was needed because it was so hot.

The bamboo sanctuary was so nice and we got to feed the holler monkey's and ask as many questions as we wanted. Royce was very nice and knowledgeable about the monkey's and even showed us different plants around the sanctuary and we got to taste some bukut which is a seed pod that is high in iron.

I would for sure book with them again for all our tours.

Cool site...
Really enjoyed this trip out here. So cool to see the ruins and be able to walk on them and learn and experience. Maybe the only downside is the size of the ruins are pretty small compared to the bigger ones out West (although they are still 50 feet high at least). That said Altun Ha is a much shorter drive and can be connected with another activity (we did the baboon sanctuary, but you could zip lining or cave tubing..).
