          Top notch shuttle service!
          Round trip shuttle from Belize City to Placencia for 8 people. Prices were fair and service was excellent. The driver's were fantastic and shared some local info. I would highly recommend their services. I’ll use them next time I’m back!

          One of the best days ever
          Had a great time on this island hopping excursion. Our guides, Luis and Jamie, were professional, knowledgeable and quick with a joke. Lunch at Raye Cay was amazing and be sure to try the water slide. My husband and I are looking forward to our next adventure. Can't recommend the company and the guides enough

          The hike was beautiful and our guide (Ricky) was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and shared fascinating information on the wildlife and Belizean culture. He was very accommodating and made the highlight of our visit!

          Monkey River Tour
          We did the Monkey River Tour with Alex. Alex is from that area and had all the insider information to share. We saw so many animals and unlike other tour groups we saw, Alex was very respectful of the people, animals, and land. Highly recommend!!

          Asked for a ride to the airport...got an amazing "tour" instead!
          So we actually just used Truly Wild Belize for transportation from Placencia to Belize City at the tail end of our stay in Belize. We thought we were just getting a ride--but instead we got a history lesson and a wonderful conversation! Robin was so well-informed as a tour guide that our drive to the airport flew by in the most pleasant way. I definitely plan to return to Belize with my family at some point, and absolutely would consider this company for excursions in the future. We got way more than we asked for with our "ride," and it was absolutely amazing! Thank you for such a wonderful experience. The Belizean culture, history, and people have been a joy to get to know.

          A truly wonderful experience
          We were in Placencia last week (which is amazing) and the host of the house where we stayed recommended contacting Jason who owns Truly Wild Belize if we wanted to go fishing and snorkeling. We are so happy we did! Jason set us up with Captain Jamie and snorkel master Louis. They were both excellent at their jobs, Jamie being a fishing expert and Louis being an expert in the aquatic coral, fish and other wildlife we encountered while snorkeling. The main thing I want to emphasize is that we were able to both fish and snorkel. On most trips we’ve taken it was one or the other but Jamie and Louis kept everyone happy. Not all of our party wanted to fish. So, Captain Jamie dropped off those who didn’t want to fish on a wonderfully remote island (which had a bar, restaurant and wifi! where they had a blast) and took those of us who wanted to fish out to the barrier reef and Continental Shelf where we had a blast! It was a complete win-win situation. We caught the biggest barracuda I have ever seen as well as a mutton snapper and had a few more bites as well. While we were fishing, the rest of our party chilled on the beach, snorkeled and had a drink or two. Our fishing group returned to the island where our entire group had a fantastic lunch. After lunch we travelled to another island where we all did serious snorkeling. Louis was our leader and was amazing at identifying and explaining the things we saw. All in all, we all thought it was a highlight of our trip. I am certain our experience is exemplary of what you enjoy on any of Jason’s excursions. Do not hesitate to book a trip with these guys. They are awesome!

          Great day at the Waterfall
          We had a great time with our tour guide Israel to do river tubing and waterfall hike. He was very personable and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our drive to the waterfall and pleasures raft down the river. Afterward Israel took us to an amazing restaurant for an authentic Belizean lunch. It was a lovely 1/2 day tour.

          Belize tubing and waterfall
          From Placencia —- We did the river tubing and waterfall. Perfect the instant our guide Israel picked us up. Provided amazing history of the area. Recommended the specific activities for us. Both spectacular. Local Belize lunch at the amazing Happy Ranch was one of the best meals on our trip. He also recommended one of his favorite Placencia restaurants which did not disappoint.

          Wonderful excursion
          We had an awesome experience with Truly Wild. Our guide, Isreal, was top-notch, very knowledgeable on the area, and the ruins. Cave tubing was a very cool experience. we had a great time. This is the second trip we have booked with this company, very professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We will definitely use them in the future.

          Book All your Placencia, Belize Adventures with Truly Wild Belize!
          We used Truly Wild Belize for ALL our but one of our excursions for our week long stay in Placencia and couldn't have been happier. Jason, the owner of Truly Wild Belize, worked with us to customize excursions for our adventerous family, and they were all a hit - ATVs to waterfalls, Tiger Fern sunset hike & waterfalls, an island hopping day to Silk Caye, Ray Caye, and Moho Caye for incredible snorkeling, and a cave kayaking excursion. Jason and his team were responsive, professional, fun, and always on time, and becasue we booked everything with them we were able to change the order of our excursions to best fit the weather as our week unfolded. We should have booked directly with Truly Wild Belize for our shuttle to/from the Belize airport, too, as we paid a significant markup by booking that shuttle through our hotel. Use Truly Wild Belize for all your outings in Placenica - you won't be disappointed!

          We had a lovely hike to a refreshing waterfall in the Cockscomb reserve. Ricky was a wonderful guide, full of knowledge about the culture, history, country and natural wonders of Belize.

          Great Value and Service. Super Family excursion with active hands on Chocolate Making
          We arranged a last minute trip with Jason to tour the Chocolate "Plantation" and visit the Waterfalls in the area. He was 30% less than the other tour operator and since we had 14 people in our group, this was a substantial discount. He "truly" loves what he does and it shows with enthusiasm which was contangeous. The tour is uncomplcated and pretty fast paced. The two hightlights were the chocolate making with our family, tasting and expanation by an expert from the region which was very interesting and fun. We were ranging in age from 5-73 and it worked for everyone. Then, we were not done. Headed over to a spectacular Waterfall which was busy but everyone could find a spot to hang. Our grandkids and their parents (our "kids" were jumping into the deep water pool under the falls over and over. Couldn't get enough. So much fun, especiallyi on a hot day. My five year old "Truth or Dared" Grandpa to jump with her........................how could I refuse. Really made memories that day. Jason is the real deal.

          Truly Wild Belize - their tours make incredible memories
          In our effort to escape the Colorado snow, we were fortunate to book two separate day tours withTruly Wild Belize and I am convinced that there can be no better tour provider. Day 1: Xunantunich + Inland Blue Hole with host extraordinaire Robin. One of our interests is Mayan culture and history and there are few more spectacular places than Xunantunich. This tour was made even better having Robin guide it. We learned so much about not only Xunantunich and Mayan culture but also about everything we saw or experienced there. Day 2: Southern Package (Nim Li Punit + Chocolate Tour + Spice Tour) with host extraordinaire Israel. Wow! I can honestly say I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this tour as much as I did. This just sounded like the kind of thing the wife enjoys so just roll with it tours…This tour was a delight for all senses. I think everyone would enjoy this tour. I would also have to say that any tour Israel guides would surpass expectations. His knowledge, patience and communication skills make him an excellent guide. It would be so wrong of me to forget to comment about the amazing lunches provided on both tours. They were among the best meals we had on our vacation!

          We did 2 tours with Truly Wild Belize and both exceeded our expectations. They were exciting, informative and beautiful. We felt safe with the guides, lunches were delicious and we had a blast. Highly recommend booking through them.

        We chose to do cave tubing and the ruins one day and then the ATM cave 2 days later, both days with Truly Wild Belize as we were staying in Placencia. Truly Wild had amazing prices, but don't let that fool you because transportation, guides and tours were top notch! Vans had AC (I live in Arizona, USA so yes it was truly great AC), Johnathan was our guide for the cave tubing and ruins and he was nonstop with history, answered all questions, took great care of us and clearly loved what he does. Wilder was our driver for ATM and Francisco was our guide and both of them were amazing too. If we're ever in the area again I wouldn't hesitate to use Truly Wild Belize and highly recommend them.

        Jason and his team at Truly Wild are amazing and provide such fun adventures. Having gone with several other tour groups throughout the country, TWB stands out as the best amongst a very competitive and qualified group. Israel took our group to the ATM Caves and it was unreal. From the history we learned on our lovely van ride there to the great lunch that was provided, we would do it again in a heartbeat.

        Our experience with our guide, Robin, exceeded our expectations. We had the privilege of getting to have Robin two consecutive days (as a driving guide to ATM the first day and cave tubing/Xunantunich the second). He was so personable and a true wealth of knowledge. He knew everything from historical details about many areas of the country to wilderness survival to rescue and recovery. When he was with our family, we never once felt rushed, and it was clear that this is a job he is not only great at, but passionate about as well. He is a person who is able to wear many hats, including auto mechanic as he was able to revive our car at one point, preventing us from potentially being stranded for a bit! Knowing what I learned from him in just two days, I can't imagine all he could have taught if we had him for a week or more going around the country. Belize is such a beautiful country with a rich history, and he was able to make it all come to life in such an interesting and captivating way. Thank you for contributing to making this such an amazing trip!

        Had a great day with Israel, who was a most informative and qualified tour guide. We learned so much and enjoyed the scenic Hummingbird Highway, visiting the Mayan ruins, cave tubing, and driving through the ‘city’. Lunch was awesome too and I LOVE the sour sop drink we had. We felt like we were the only ones at both locations since it was the day before hurricane Lisa was due to hit Belize. Sites were closing early, but Israel made sure we got in and called ahead in order to be sure. We highly recommend this tour company and Israel. It was a truly phenomenal experience! Thank you!

        I had a friend come to visit for a week and decided to book a couple of tours so they can get a good feel for this amazing country that is Belize. One that i picked was Xunantunich the Mayan ruins and cave tubing. The thing that makes for a great tour is not only the place but also the person giving the tour. We had the pleasure of having Robin as our tour guide. The man is a walking encyclopedia on all things Belize, and Mexico and Guatemala and well all of Central America it turns out. We even learned things about the united States that we didn't know before. Robin was engaging funny and went out of his way to help everyone with what ever they needed. And all of the things we learned about Belize the people the culture and even the plants is something that we will remember for years to come. Looking forward to booking another tour with Robin.

        Jonathan was the best guide we could have hoped for. He was so informative and patient with our young granddaughters. The ruins were so impressive and he took the time to interpret the glyphs.

        The cave tubing was even better than we expected. Spotted some bats, even saw a tapir swimming in the river. Jonathan worked his heart out pulling us down the river. The caves were just plain awesome.

        12 hours of utter beauty.

        Jonathan was our guide and he was fun, easygoing, and very knowledgeable about Belize, Mayan history, local flora and fauna. We learned a lot which added to the adventure. It’s a long drive from Placencia, but seeing the country was worth it. Crossing a river on a hand-cranked ferry (they let me crank it!), climbing the pyramid, a delicious lunch, and amazing cave floating and the short jungle hike were all memorable.

        The experience to Xunantunich and cave tubing was great! Our tour guide Jonathan was the best. He mixed cultural history and safety with wonderful energy, excitement, and jokes! He answered all of our questions and more. The ruins were beautiful, hot, and had a few steep climbs. Recommend wearing moisture wicking clothing, sunscreen, and grip shoes for the steps. The cave tubing was an experience to remember. Recommend wearing bug repellent, bathing suit with shorts, water shoes(that's a must), and bring dry clothes to change. Overall wonderfully full day of cultural history, food, and good energy!!!!

        Our tour guide, Syed Alexander was absolutely amazing and made every part fantastic!!! The cave tubing was magical!

        Caution: they are not kidding when they say you need water shoes. It is a decent hike to the mouth of the cave over very rocky (gravel). We bought cheap water shoes with thin soles and the gravel was still hard on our feet. Thick soles are your best friends.

        We saw bats, tarantula, a toucan, fish. It was absolutely gorgeous!

        Incredible tour! Our guide Robin was a little bit chauffeur, a little bit spelunker, well versed historian and botanist! A wealth of information with a little imagination made the trip to the ruins a trip through time. He then tied the trip to the ruins to the dark cave tour and river float!

        The icing on the cake was the in depth knowledge he had of the fauna and flora.

        Truly memorable even the teenagers agreed it was a tour well worth taking.
