I was looking for a ride to Tikal that didn't involve me taking a chicken bus. They let me hop on their ride for the tour and just pay for the shuttle. Drivers and vehicles were awesome and made everything quick and easy, plus had lots of knowledge of the area and made the border crossing easy :)

We did both the ATM and MPR tour and had an amazing time on both. ATM tour was super popular. I felt like Indiana Jones exploring the cave. Our guide was patient and informative. After we exited the cave we had hot tasty meals of chicken, rice, and pasta salad made by Eva's restaurant across from the tour office. Bring... More

Hi Richelle, It was nice meeting you my friend. I want to thank you for booking your ATM and MPR with Mayawalk. We do appreciate it a lot. They are both wonderful tours and we are extremely happy you enjoyed both of them. The MPR tour does not garner a lot of attention like the ATM tour but this eco-system... More

We booked Tikal and the ATM cave through MayaWalk, and both were fantastic. Poor Andrew handled countless emails from me through the booking process and confirming before we left the states, and he greeted us warmly when we arrived. The ATM cave was literally the best adventure I've ever had on vacation. If you find yourself with the good fortune... More

We had a great day with these guys. Hugh gave us great information throughout. On our drive in he talked about Belize culture and such as well as some Maya history. The walk was pleasant. 3 river crossings so dress to get soaked! We saw some cool birds, lizards and tap it tracks. The cave was so much fun. Nothing... More

Would highly recommend Maya Walk for this tour. Small groups of 6 with a guide. Very well organised and felt well prepared with the option to wear a life jacket and mandatory helmet and head torch. The guide led us through the cave ensuring we traversed all sections comfortably. We stopped many times while features were explained and artefacts observed.... More

A group of 5 of us did the ATM Tour with Rennan and Francisco from the MayaWalk crew. Aside from being hilarious stand-up comics on the van ride over to the cave, Rennan and Francisco took such good care of the group, sharing their archaeological and cultural knowledge about the cave and surrounding areas. The tour itself was like nothing... More

I took both the cave tubing and the ATM tour with MayaWalk. The manager/owner, Andrew, is super nice and accommodating. I booked last minute and he was able to fit me into both tours without issue, while two other companies turned me away. The guides are awesome. The guides for each tour (Victor and Francisco) had little mini-adventures within each... More

Unfortunately we left 30 minutes late waiting for 2 no-shows, but still beat most other tour groups, which means a lot, once you get in the cave and start bumping into each other. Don't really need a small backpack with snacks as suggested, will just fill with water doing the river crossings, and can't take bottled water in the caves.... More
