This is by far one of the best tours we have been on. The experience from start to finish was professional and personal. The planning of our trip was done smoothly with Vitalino responding to our inquiries quickly and thoroughly. We were so fortunate to have Michael as our guide. He is so knowledgeable and has a natural teaching ability. We peppered him with questions about everything we saw and he patiently shared his expertise on Mayan history and the rainforest and every aspect of cave tubing. Our day was carefully planned and we had Altune Ha completely to ourselves. Our trek through the rainforest was extremely interesting and the cave tubing was a unique once in a lifetime experience. We highly recommend this company and particularly our guide Micheal. Thank you!

Recently took this excursion, thanks to all the reviewers on Tripadvisor, while we had a port stop in Belize City on the Norwegian Star. Our van left quickly very soon after we met them; so we were among the early ones reaching the park. We have a total of 12 in our group, which is manageable. We liked our guide who has a very pleasant demeanor and conscientious about pointing out things to us. It was an interesting yet relaxing excursion; enjoyed hiking in the jungle path before the slow float down the river. As mentioned by other reviewers, got to see more caves than other excursion operations. At the end had a little time to get off the tubes and swim/float down the cool river. The provided lunch was tasty, with enough alcohol in the rum punch that's served! You cannot go wrong with this tour which is reliable and very reasonably priced...would strongly recommend them.

We booked our trip with Vitalino after seeing the reviews from Tripadvisor. We have 4 children 4,7,9 and 11 and all were able to participate in the cave tubing and the zip line tour. We were greeted at the terminal in the morning by Gerson and Axel. They both did a great job throughout the entire day. We drove in an air conditioned van for about 40 minutes to the activity site. They gave us some bottled water and explained how everything worked. We started with the zip line and everybody had a good time. We saw a boa constrictor in a tree and the kids really enjoyed the ride. Cave tubing was really fun, too. We had a good little walk along the trail before getting into the water. Our guides pointed out a lot of wildlife and information about plants in the area. We got a chance to taste some termites(completely optional) and had nice equipment for the river. The cave was really cool and there was plenty to see inside. The lunch afterwards was really good and we were brought back to the terminal in plenty of time to get back to our ship. This is not a high adventure activity, and it's geared more towards a family like ours. A few hints: don't wear flip flops and bring some mosquito repellent if you don't want to get a few bites.

We booked this tour having read about the good reviews on TA, but our experience has been anything but excellent.
The tour is essentially half an hour on a slow moving river with some commentary. the tour seemed very rushed and almost factory production like.
It initially involves a 30 mins walk to the site over gravel wearing wet shoes which is a real pain.
The tubing itself is over so quickly it's very hard to justify the $75 US price per person, so that's 150 American dollars total for 2 people for a very average tour.
Once we discussed this with Vitellino his response was that this is a high season price and included the price to get out to the caves. Had we made our own way there it would have cost 35 dollars less! Something that wasn't mentioned to us when we were booking.
Overall a very poor experience and certainly not worthy of its tripadvisor ranking.

This tour includes an additional cave and is longer than other operators. The guides were very informative during the walk through the rain forest to get to the caves and were particularly interactive with the children in our group. I would highly recommend this tour....The guides wanted to make sure everyone learned a lot and enjoyed themselves.
