Wow, Gilbert is the Mayan expert. Our group was given a well rounded history on the Mayan's culture, religion, politics, calander , science, as well as their every day life. Fascinating! I went home wanting learn even more.

We enjoyed our time with Dennis. We had a small group (only four of us!), so we had lots of personal attention. When we arrived at the pier and met up with Gilbert and Dennis, we ended up waiting about an hour to an hour and a half for the rest of the tour group (two of whom never showed up). We sat and watched as the cruise ship buses drove off to make their way towards the cave tubing site. After we finally left e had to drop Gilbert off at his house, which meant a drive through the city (very interesting in and of itself). Finally we made our way to the caves. Despite all this waiting and extra driving around, we still managed to catch up with the cruise ship buses and arrived at the cave tubing site at about the same time as they did. Once we arrived at the cave tubing site, Dennis had somebody hired to carry our tubes during the hike through the jungle. We noticed that the other tour groups were required to carry their own tubes.

Dennis was a wonderful tour guide. It was refreshing to hear about the jungle, plants, and sites around us from a local, instead of the usual scripted tour guide jargon.

Our little group became like a family for the day. It was a much more personal experience than the giant tour groups. If also felt good to support local people, especially since this is their beautiful land that they are kind enough to share with us. It only seems right that they receive the financial benefits of their land.

I was nervous about getting off the ship and traveling an hour for an excursion knowing the cruise could leave without us if we were late. No worries now! Gilbert was very knowledgeable and friendly. Booking on our own we got great price and private tour. Wear walking shoes that can be worn after getting wet.

Hello Guys,

My family and I went on a Cruise with Carnival Magic on May 5, 2013 from Galveston, TX. One of the port of calls was Belize, and we wanted to go on the Zip-Line and Cave tubing. Carnival was offering this shore excursions for $150, and I found the same excursion with CTT for $100. After, doing my reserach about the company, we decided to go with CTT. This was the BEST thing ever!!! We were greeted by Dennis, then left on a 15 passanger van with Gilberto/David (Driver with a P.H.D.) The ride from Belize City to the Ziprider/Cave Tubing was about 45 minutes. We had a blast with Gilberto he joked, laughed, educated us, and especially made us feel welcome. When we arrived to the Zip Rider we were approched by staff they got us ready. Everything/Everyone is very well organized and your stuff are secure in the van. They have 5 forms of security. We went thorugh 1 practice line and 7 awesome/trilling ziplines. Next, we went cave tubing, we took a 20 minute walk to the caves. We DIDNT carry our tubes (Carnival people were carrying their tubes) so we had time to take pictures while walking in amazing jungle. The Caves are amazing and they make sure you have a great time. They provide food and drinks. They make sure you are on time back to the ship. The whole getting off the ship and getting on the tender boats is so fustrating. Get up early and try to get the 1st or 2nd tender boat. Either way they are in members of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association so if something happens they keep in touch with Carnival. I TOTAL recommend Challenge Travel and Tours. Thanks a lot Gilberto for making a group of 12 TEX-MEX people have an amazing time LOL!!!
