We scheduled our trip with David four months in advance after reading the great reviews here on TripAdvisor, scheduled for Feb 16 with seven in our party.
This is honestly the best excursion on the three stop trip. David and Henry were personable, friendly, and professional throughout. They treated us as old friends instead of one-day only customers. As mentioned elsewhere, David has a great sense of humor and and infectious laugh, and he had us all in great spirits throughout the trip.
We made sure we were the first people off the Mariner of the Seas, as David warned us it was an all day trip. Unfortunately, the other couple that signed up were rude and didn't bother showing up for nearly an hour after that. David waited at the terminal for them, while we walked over with Henry to the bus. Henry entertained us with some history of Belize, and answered many questions from us.
The equipment used was clean, well cared for, and in great condition. It's gear I would have bought myself.
One thing I haven't seen mentioned in all the other five star reviews is how the guys at Cave Tubing R Us put you in the water. When we finished our hike to the dock, another outfit was deploying. These guys have you stand on the dock, with your tube on your back, and then you fall backwards into the water in a great splash. You're soaked, and so are the people around you. This method upset several of our party members (including my mother in law). David assured us they did it differently, and they did! They put the tube in the water, and instead of you falling backwards, they hold your hands while you lean back and over the tube. There is minimal splashing.
We stopped at Cheers on the way back, and had a terrific lunch. The nachos and Gringo Tamales are superb!
