“Awesome guides”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

I will start by saying this isn't what I thought it would be. I envisioned "tubing" through rapids and falling off etc (fun to me). This was much more laid back. The only work we did was walking through the jungle to get tp the cave. Our guides were very helpful and informative. Jefferson Alfonso is #1! The tamales(yes w bones) were amazing. This is how they make tamales there, appreciate different cultures! Would I cave tube again? Prob not, but thats not their fault, just not high adventure like I enjoy!

“Cave tubing was excellent, ATV tour was poor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Booked this excursion after researching Belize. We met the tour operator jst outside the port. It seemed to be chaos. Fortunately our group (13) was given our own short bus. Some of our group was doing ATV and the others zip lining. We all met up for the cave tubing.

The group that did the zip line thought it was excellent and really enjoyed themselves.

6 of us did the ATV. While we had a great time, 20 minutes was too short for what we paid. It was fun. They have a course. We have guides that helped us get back on track when taking corners too wide or stopping next to a stump/root.

Cave tubing was very good. The guides pointed things out along the way. They roped the tubes together and made sure we went in the right currents. They explained many things to us. This was the best part of the tour in my opinion.

The included lunch was a chicken tamalee that was below averag with some chips. We ate it in the bus on the way back the ship at the end of the tour (after 2PM).

“Great trip with a great crew”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

The entire team was professional and fun. Our only issues with the trip were from the excursion, not the company or crew. The bus ride is rather long (1hr) and the cave tubing is rather short (30 min). With 5 ships in port this day, we managed to have a great time due to Speedy and his crew. They were informative and fun the entire day and would highly suggest Butts Up for anyone looking to participate in the adventure. Other friends took the cruise sponsored trip and did not have nearly the smile we hand on our face upon return.

“Great Price; Great Excursion!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

The wife and I very rarely ever use the excursions offered by the cruise ship companies, and opt for the local independent operators. Butts-UP filled that bill and we were NOT disappointed. We were met just outside the Fort St port gate by Big John, who was wearing a Butts-UP staff shirt. We were quickly placed on an air conditioned large bus, and after waiting a short time for other guest were taken on an hour long trip west into Belize.

Big John entertained us with some jokes while providing us with some history of the areas we passed through. We later provided with a sample of very good tasting cashew wine, a local product of Belize.

Upon arrival at the Belize National Park, you will quickly realize that this is the very SAME starting point used by the much more expensive cruise ship tour excursion companies use. there was an interesting 30 minute walk through the rain forest, which included crossing a river. Do yourself a favor and where an old pair of jogging or tennis shoes for this walk.

The river that takes you into the caves is pleasantly cool, and very clear. You will spend approximately 25 to 30 minutes floating inside the caves. It was a great time and we will be using this Butts-Up again next year when we return to Belize.

“Best shore excursion ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We have been with Butts Up 2 times and have another one booked. First time was a family reunion cruise with 14 of us and we all thought it was fantastic, especially considering the price which included 2 hours on a tour bus and lunch. The guides were great both joking and telling us about Belize. I read the review below "Terrible Company" and just about fell off my chair. Seriously, they blame the tour guides for the "walk", "mud" and having to cross the river?? Like they can control that? This is a "cave tubing" tour!! If you don't want to walk or get dirty stay on the ship, or better yet stay home! Of course when you have this kind of attitude the guides aren't going to be anxious to please you. Its no wonder we Americans have a less than favorable reputation overseas. Our guides carried the tubes for the and even our teenage daughter. She should have carried her own! This tour could not have been better.
