About Barebones Tours, Day and Night Tours
Barebones Tours offers a variety of tours, specializing in custom tours around Monkey River. You can immerse yourself in the experience all day, half-day, or book multiple day tours customized to your interests - from jungle and river tours to see Howler monkeys and crocodiles to night tours, survival tours, medicinal tours, plus snorkeling and fishing trips and more. Percy Gordon, known as "King of the Howlers," is our most requested tour guide, and talks with the monkeys - you have to hear it to believe it! I am a resident of Monkey River, Belize since September 2011. I have been coming to Monkey River for 8 years and would like to share my knowledge with everyone to make their Belize vacation the best it could be. ~Craig Pearlman, Owner

the tour was just ok. its basically sitting awkwardly on a boat looking for animals for 3-4 hours. the guide is enthusiastic. The food we had was pretty bad and we ate in an unlit living room of the guides sister. If you do it, bring lots of bug spray. Overall, i dont think it's worth $120 us. Maybe $80 at most.

We signed up for this tour thinking we’d potentially see some monkeys and maybe a manatee. What we got was so much more than that. Percy is friendly, funny, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his town. The love for the river and the land poured out of him. We had a great experience. Percy was able to point out many animals including many different types of birds, crocs, bats, turtles, snakes, iguanas, manatees and more. He didn’t just point out the monkeys he got them howl. Percy pointed out almost every tree and explained their health benefits. As a nurse and a doctor we both thoroughly enjoyed this as his knowledge about the body systems were on point. Lunch was delicious. We loved learning all about monkey river from someone from the area, it made it much more special. Thank you Percy!
