Our family of five just finished a full day trip guided by Israel. It was a fantastic trip - but the highlight was our guide. Israel was knowledgeable about Belize and made the day fun! He was so informative and on the way to our zip lining and cave tubing we received an education about the country we were visiting. We would highly recommend any tour with Israel!

Review of: ATM Caves
We were prohibited taking photos today on our jaunt to the Mayan underworld at Actun Tunichil Muknal, or the “Cave of the Stone Sepulchre”. About a 2 1/2 hour van ride into the interior of Belize, almost to the Guatemalan border. The Mayans took sacrificial humans into the cave to ask the gods to help them win wars, get rain, help their crops, defeat trump and Fascists, whatever. You hike 45 minutes, crossing a river three times (once requiring swimming while hanging onto a rope strung across the river); then swim across a pool 50 feet across to enter the cave; then hike in running water from an underground stream (at times up to your chest) 550 meters, scrambling on and over rock, including climbing a rock wall (no kidding) 30 feet high with water running down it in only your stocking feet (because you are entering sacred territory). A tad slippery. Don’t look down. At times you had to scrunch down (again in water) through a rock tunnel 5-10 feet long, no wider than the width of your chest to your back. This is all in absolute pitch black, lit only by lights on your hard hat. Amazing stalagmites and stalactites throughout the cave. After about 400 meters, you start seeing broken clay jars that are 1100+ years old. Some are almost intact, but with pieces broken off. The Mayans took food and drink into the cave and, when finished using the pots, broke them or disfigured them because (once used) they were no longer “virginal”. A few meters further are the first skeletal remains of the sacrifice victims. You see skulls with evidence of having the skull stove in at the sacrifice. You see remains of infants, children, men and women. 16 skeletal remains have been found in the cave, with a full skeleton of a 16-20 year old female at the end. Then you retrace your steps, down the 30 foot rock wall this time, back through the tunnels, back across the pools and hiking back across rivers another 45 minutes. About four hours in the cave. Absolutely mind boggling and very physically exhausting.

Review of: ATM Caves
What can I say about the Truly Wild crew. They were professional, super helpful, patient and great fun to hang out with. We did ATM Caves, Xunantunich, Cave Tubing, and Snorkeling. And at every activity site, we had nothing but top notch service and support. Its hard to select one favorite activity as they were all so well done and managed. I think the ATM was definitely one of the high points for me and the family. Jason and his team is truly wild - wildly amazing and just good people. We will definitely be back!

Four of my friends and I took this tour on October 23rd. Our guides, Jason and Israel, were both very knowledgeable and helped orient us to Belize and its many natural attractions. I was awed by Xunantunich, and Israel shared information about all aspects of Mayan culture, even local trees that have poisonous and medicinal properties! I am so happy we took this tour--it gave us a beautiful tubing experience through limestone caves as well. Would highly recommend it.

We had such a great day with Israel. He was very accommodating and professional. He had so much knowledge to share about Belize in general and about the ruins we visited. He had a nice clean van we rode in. Great guy.
