“Cave tubbing with MajorTom”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Our group about 15 adults (Friends and family).. were on a Carnival Cruise ,Major Tom his self drove half of us the other rode with Minor Tom (both very good drivers)we got to try the local Cashew wine , hubby loved it drank mine too.... lol Lunch was super good BBQ chicken ,beans and rice yes the hot sauce is hot :)but the sweet ladies that prepare the meals are sweet and give you refills... .. tubes and safety helmets and gear all checked out by Minor tom and staff before putting it on us . A little hike before getting to the caves but well worth it going thru the rain forest was spactular.. the guys have knowledgeable about the area plants and wild life and getting to smell the ALSPICE leaf was like thanksgiving/Christmas and in one smell ,yes the waters are cold the river is spring fed , yes there a pretty little water fall in the cave and the guide well float you into it , the cave its self is beautiful the formations are pretty amassing , so glade we too this tour and got to meet some amassing people
HINT: I have a bad back and bum knee but I made it and if you tell them of any issue they can be accomadating to special needs and one of our friends walked with his metal cane just layed it across his lap when tubbing ,Another of our friends cant swim and our river guide stayed near her making sure she was safe and secure
Yes they speak fluent English &/Spanish &/a local dialect..... maybe even more just ask ..
P.S. Major Tom & Minor Tom and CREW thanks for an amassing day

“Great Day!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Major and Minor Tom were great! We went on a full day excursion seeing the ruins, then zip lining and cave tubing. We had so much fun doing everything and learning so much! I would highly recommend using them if you are looking for a fun excursion.

“By far - the BEST part of the trip!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Major Tom and Minor Tom may be the best thing to happen to Belize since the country declared independence! Major Tom is an amazing wealth of knowledge about Belizian culture, history, nature, etc. Though not advertised as part of the trip, we none the less had opportunity to eat fresh guave, see wild Black Orchids, taste cashew wine, learn about the plants and animals in the tropical rain forest, and even tasted termites straight from the mound! Marco and Maj Tom escorted us through the cave and I cannnot say enough good things about them both! At the end of the trip, we enjoyed an awesome local lunch of authentic food made by locals and even had a chance to shop for locally made crafts. This trip was so much more than just "cave tubing"! It was an adventure that left me craving for more Belize! Do not pass up the opportunity to see and learn about this beautiful country with Major Tom! Hands down it was the greatest part of our cruise! The zip line and cave tubing are only the beginning of the adventure!

“Very Poor Logistics”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

I traveled via Cruise ship Nov 2011. Although the Scenery was impressive, that was about it. We were picked up from the Cruise ship dock by 2 vans, after being led behind some buildings for payment collection. (which Credit Cards were accepted when we booked, but they only accepted CASH the day of). Be prepared to walk a great deal getting to the Cave tubing site. Lunch was Fair at best, some chicken, rice and bug juice. Eat a hearty breakfast, this will not fill you up. After arriving in 2 Vans, mostly cruise ship customers but 2 couples from the Local hotels. Major Tom, took one of the vans with the 2 Land based couples and went off to another Excursion, leaving 2 of us, not fitting in the already overcrowded, packed van. No way to get back to the SHIP. After trying 2 other Friends of Minor Tom, we were finally on our way back to the ship dock. Arriving JUST IN TIME, to catch the last transport back. I thought Major Tom would be the way to go, being with the Local tour guide a former Military man. But his LOGISTICS in working with cruise ship patrons and land based patrons was not very well thought out. Pay the extra money, get the Air Conditioned transportation, guarantee is: Ship doesn't leave until everyone is back, they don't leave you behind, Better lunch = total overall better experience. Beware. Minor Tom and the rest of the team were trying to be very accommodating to assist, in getting us back to the ship. Major Tom didn't care! Even after several emails, he just didn't see the problem.

“Great fun zipping and tubing with Major Tom and Minor Tom”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Greatest experience I've had since coming back and forth to Belize over the years! Major Tom & Minor Tom are definitely well versed in knowledgeable history when it comes to Belize what they share and show you on their tours. Their passion is delightful and entertaining at the same time! Zip lining under and over the canopy jungle forest was incredible, what a rush!!! The cave tubing I absorbed every minute of it floating with river current along the way. The Mayan tour experience really opened my eyes & mind to what it could of been like back then thanks to the detailed narration by Major Tom. Bravo Major Tom! Having the tour experience with just a group of four of us tubing and zipping was also an essential bonus! The timing could not of been even more perfect for the whole package deal to spend your entire day. I recommend Major Tom tours highly to anyone looking for a great memorable experience. Look forward to doing it again Major Tom. Thank you for the ultimate ride!
