“Best option for Belize cave tubing.”
Review of Cave Tubing R Us

Cave Tubing R Us
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Our experience was as positive and accurate as the other reviews. Try to be on the first tender boat, we had plenty of time and then some, I just felt bad the father and son that went with us had to wait as we had to wait for a 2nd or 3rd tender boat.

David was waiting for us, the van had seat belts and air conditioning. David educated us all along the drive, hike, and tubing in a fun and energetic way, he lives his job and it shows.

The caves are pretty cool, use your imagination and you too will see incredible shapes.

The cruise ships appear to have cut their prices to push local cave tubing companies out of business, which is horrible as we personally saw the cruise tubers having an experience like cattle getting inches along in crappy tubes with strangers ankles under their armpits! Our tubes were nice and even had pillows, when your head is up looking at cave formations the pillows keeps your head comfortable. We had literally twice the tubing experience and went a lot farther than the cruise tubers. Think of the logistics of having to move hundreds of people off and on shuttles and getting gear, makes sense their trip in the water was half the length of our intimate groups.

After the cave tubing we got to tube the river in the sunshine and even swim!

Afterwards we ate at the local buffet that was on site. The cruise ship food was yummy, but honestly this buffet was my favorite. Soooo fresh and tasty.

We had a need to stop by a pharmacy- no problem. David enjoys helping people and makes you laugh.

We took bug spray and forgot to use it and we got chomped, don't forget to spray. The bugs were really only at the mouth of the caves, you don't really see them but they see you. :)

The trip was un-Belizable! Hee hee.

Having read a lot of positive reviews of the company and David, I
Was very pleased to find out they were accurate and surpassed our expectations. David was very friendly and knowledgable(including which termites were edible). The trip combined some sightseeing, a easy walk through jungle and the incredible caves. Our small group (much better than being tethered to 20people, like the other operators) had a great time. I have been on a dozen cruises in the Caribbean and this was the best excursion I have been on.

I highly recommend David and his company.

David was the best and the tour was great. He picked us up, took us to our hotel, dropped our bags and off we went. His tour took us to the special sights seen by few.

Cave Tubing R Us is THE company to book your adventure! Our guide and owner of the company was David, we were lucky enough to get him all to ourselves (my boyfriend and I) first Zip lining and then a hike to the river that was "Fear Factor" style. He educated us on the wildlife we passed, even daring us to eat some exotic plants and bugs! (We did) He felt our vibe as a younger couple and showed us the experience of a lifetime, he would indefinitely do the same for families and cruise ship guests as well. We went through cave systems many other tours missed, he was by far the most outgoing guide as we passed other tours all linked up in silence David would crack a joke at them or us, and point out to everybody some statue like formations in the walls that it was obvious other guides were missing... This comes from years of doing the tour with a passion for the best customer satisfaction possible! By booking with Cave Tubing R Us you are ensuring the most fun, safe, educational, and entertaining tour Belize has to offer, and don't worry about time! After everything we still made our appointment with time to relax! I loved everything about our amazing day out with David and give him 5 stars hands down!!!!! <3 -Meg&Baker!

Though there are numerous folks who offer cave tubing, I would recommend David above all. He was a professional throughout, working closely with us prior to arriving in country and accommodating our schedule once in country. His wife picked us up promptly and kept us company as David picked up his other customers from a cruise ship. Within a matter of minutes we were off on our adventure. While en route, David provided us information on the country, etc., and stopped by a village shop for us to purchase snacks, etc. Once on site, he and his staff prepared the tubes, and away we went. We stopped along the way to jump in and acclimate to the water prior to our final destination. David took us for a hike on the long route to ensure we’d get the full effect vice the limited tours typically given via the cruise ship vendors. Everything was safely and meticulously done, life vests and night lights were provided and secured for all and the tubes were interconnected so no one would be separated during the tour. Rather than having us get out at the first exit to the cave, he allowed us to float the river at a leisurely pace. Once finished and on our way home, we had the option of having a buffet lunch (catering to the masses) or enjoying a local meal. The group chose the local meal and we ventured off to Cheers, 501-822-8014, where the drinks and food were fantastic. As a side note, if you have the chance, definitely bring a water camera. David provided an exceptional tour and we would definitely recommend it to others.
