Awesome day. Elio and family picked us up just as described outside of port timely and really customized the tour. Kids had a blast finding with the boat ride as well as exploring the Lamanai with so much wildlife of birds, bats, monkeys, gator, etc. This is not a trip to a zoo or caged event but a real experience in the wild. Highly suggested vs the cruise excursions. Would do this again.

I love it when you go on a tour and the guides are so passionate and knowledgeable you think it is their first and only tour!! We were so lucky to have Collin and Junior!! The boat ride made the experience extra special. We saw juvenile and adult Tiger Herons, a Laughing Hawks with a snake in its talons, Limkin, Green Herons, bats, a woodpecker, lily-pad trotters known as Jesus Christ birds, a crocodile, King Fishers... Then, we learned about the Mayans. An incredible day!!!

Great tour with an exciting river boat ride to the Mayan Archaeology Reserve. The tour guide was knowledgeable, well organized and very accommodating. We enjoyed a lovely picnic lunch at the Mayan site. A very well run family operation.

This tour group was amazing! We took an hour boat ride to the Archaeological park. The boat tour was as amazing as the site itself. Our tour guide was funny and very knowledgeable. If you get a chance to take one tour in Belize....this is a great one!

Fantastic tour of some amazing ruins! We booked this as a private tour, and it was 100% worth it. We had a great experience and felt very safe for our entire tour. Take advantage and enjoy this site without the cruise ships crowds while you still can. Javier was our guide and did a great job telling us about all the interesting parts of this site. We had visited other Mayan ruins in Mexico last year, so it was cool to see the similarities and differences. Make sure to listen when he talks about the liquid mercury that was found on site! A side note for picture lovers - I am always nervous to book guided tours because I want to make sure I have time to stop and take pictures. Javier was great about this! He included plenty of time for us to stop and take pictures of the two of us, even wandering around so we didn't feel pressured to be quick. This is a little thing - but something I really appreciated. Some tips to help you enjoy your tour: It was 1.5 hour bus ride (bumpy roads, so be prepared), and then a 1 hour boat ride winding through the mangroves. Beautiful boat ride, they stopped when there was an interesting bird or wildlife. They provided cushions, but I suggest bringing a very lightweight blanket if you burn easily to protect your legs since even through the top is shaded the angle of the sun won't always protect you. There are bathrooms at the start of the boat ride (clean), and when you get to the ruins (also very clean). Bring snacks & water. As with any tour you should be prepared and bring enough supplies for yourself! They did have some snacks and drinks for us on the boat ride back, and then we ate lunch in the bus on the way back (this was to allow us the most time at the ruins so we didn't mind the late lunch at all!). The ruins have 3 sites, which are also the 3 main pyramids. There are wide flat walking trails in between them. We only climbed to the top of the High Pyramid since it was hot out, and this one gives you the best views (you can see the river your boat came in on). We saw multiple groups of monkeys, which was very cool. This group went above and beyond, they picked us up from a hotel not in Belize City, were able to store our luggage throughout the trip, and then dropped us off at the water taxi port. I really appreciated their flexibility in addition to their knowledge of the sites!
