Review of Cave Tubing R Us

Cave Tubing R Us
Ranked #2 of 91 Tours in Belize District
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 6, 2013

After reading many reviews, I settled on Cave Tubing R "us". After exiting the cruise village the security guard asked me who I was looking for and quickly directed me to David. It seems everyone knows David, we were in good hands.David told us to try to get off the ship asap. Because we did, we beat all the bus loads of cruisers.The drive out to the caves took 45 minutes. The conversation was very informative but lighthearted. David is very proud of his country and strives to enlighten all of his guests with all things Belizean. David took us through the jungle, stopping many times to teach us about trees and plants. Using David's private tour company allowed us to take our time, go for a longer walk and a longer cave trip. The caves were wonderful and very relaxing especially with the superior tubes. Everything you read about this tour is correct!! This is the only cave tubing company you should be using. Thanks again David for a wonderful day!!

The cave tubing experience itself was memorable and David's sincere joy in what he does combined with his open and warm personality made this experience fantastic! I highly recommend Cave Tubing R Us for anyone looking for a super fun experience in wonderful, sunny Belize!! :):)

I wanted to thank your team for a wonderful time when we did the cave tubing on March 13th. I had a group of 12 from the NCL Star, and we were driven to the cave area by Henry. At the parking area we were joined by Cato, and Robert stayed in the area to watch the van with our possessions locked in it.

Henry was a wonderful guide, he was very knowledgeable and made the ride enjoyable.

We were all amazed at how Henry and Cato led our tubes through the caves, which included spending most of their time in the river and not on a tube. Their knowledge about the shallow areas was great, calling out "butts up" when necessary. They entertained us as well as guided us through the caves.

I also thank you for having the type of tubes you did. There were quite a few other groups tubing at the same time we did and none of them had the same tubes and we felt so pleased after watching the other groups have to stick their feet under the armpits of the person in front of them to keep their group together. Your tubes were much more comfortable and hooked together by ropes. Other people remarked how they liked our tubes better than theirs.

This tour was worth what we paid and I want to thank you all for making our time at Belize memorable. Thanks again especially to Henry and Cato!!

Cave tubing with Cave Tubing R Us was hands down the highlight of our cruise!!
David was at the port to greet us, as promised...even in the pouring rain! The hour ride to the caves was fun and educational. We watched a fascinating DVD about Belize on the drive and David was a wealth of knowledge about Belize, both current and historical.
Once at the cave hike start point, there were plenty of rest rooms and changing areas. We got our tubes, which were ready and waiting for us and started off on our hike to the river. The terrain is tough, but the hike is easy. Heed the warning: DON'T WEAR FLIP FLOPS! Along the way, David stopped to point out interesting facts about various trees, plants and foliage...and even let the daring ones in the group try some edible bugs!
David was consistently concerned with our well being and SAFETY...even carried one of our group member's tube and gear without even being asked! WE WERE IMPRESSED! VERY THOUGHTFUL, CONSIDERATE AND TRULY APPRECIATED!!
Once in the water, we enjoyed a relaxing float thru the caves and were constantly being educated about what we were seeing. We were relieved to NOT be one of the groups that had to stay together with feet and armpits joined....YUCH!! HUGE prerequisite for us!
After our adventure (which we didn't want to end) David had us back to the dock in plenty of time to shop and get back to the ship, even with stopping at a local restaurant for lunch!
This was an adventure we will NEVER FORGET!! The friendly personalized service was WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!

My friend and I felt like we were taking a risk by booking a cave tubing excursion through an independent guide rather than the cruise line, but when we saw the great reviews here we thought it was worth a try (not to mention that Dave's asking price was less than half what our cruise line was charging). We were not disappointed.

It was easy to find Dave when we got to the port, and he had his very polite teenaged son, Antoine, take us to the waiting bus a short distance away. We had a few minutes to kill waiting for the rest of our party to arrive, so we chatted with Henry, the main guide and driver for our trip. He told us some of the history of Belize and explained Creole phrases--very interesting! Throughout the entire trip, Henry would offer relevant information about the places and things we were seeing--he's a walking encyclopedia!

At all times we felt like we were in capable hands. The tubes were comfortable, and I appreciated that they had netting in the hole so that my waterproof camera and T-shirt didn't float away (also nice for resting your butt). Afterwards, Henry took us to a local restaurant with excellent food. He explained the items on the menu clearly, so there was no guessing about what you were getting.

I would definitely book this tour again. It was so nice to have a smaller group and personal attention.
