We went to the ATM cave with PACZ when it was pouring rain and I was impressed with their overall concern for safety.
ATM was an excellent experience and a must do for anyone who is adventurous. overall difficulty is high but doable for almost anyone in okay shape (okay here means you can run 3 miles in 40 minutes)

We had a great time and are only in okay shape. Others who were in lesser shape also had a good time and were safe.

6-9 Apr 10: Tikal Paperwork for border crossing could be done at the office on EXCEL - one time and then printed out. Guide was competent and patient.
ATM - Guide Oscar seemed impatient at times. ATM is amazing. I can understand how people get hooked on spelunking, but personally wont get into it. . And Bob, get some bigger helmets not everyone is a British Army pinhead!!! Box lunch was fair. Dont wear hiking boots. Keen watershoes and the like are fine. I wore running shoes. The folks with hiking boots will have heck of a time drying them out. Otherwise tour went well. Also, not for kids nor the claustrophobic.
Xunantunich - Ignacio was very knowledgeable. I was impressed with his professionalism.

PACZ Tours has a professional looking web site, but that is the only thing professional about them.
They subcontract out their tours through local residents. This means that some local resident, who is not an employee of PACZ, shows up in their own vehicle to give you “their” tour. While I am sure that some clients get a great guide, others DO NOT. You are rolling the dice.
Our local “guide” showed up late at our hotel late, in his very used Nissan sedan. This rolling death trap had no working seat belts, no A/C, 2 windows that would not roll down and only 2 doors that could be opened from the inside. Combined with high temperatures, rough roads, and very fast driving… You get the picture, not a pleasant experience.
The box lunch PACZ supplied sat in the hot car during our tour. It consisted or a bottle of water, a stale chicken sandwich, a tiny bag of cheddar banana chips, and a small melted snickers bar. Everyone on the trip including the guide ended up buying the $5.00 BBQ lunch sold by a vendor in the parking lot.
Finally, after the tour back in PACZ office, the price quoted mysteriously went up. The ensuing argument with Bob Jones the office manager, cemented my resolve to write this review. I talked with other guest at our hotel that night that used a different company. Their professional guides were employees who drove company vehicles. They had a great experience.

I just week a week with Pacztours, it could not have been better. While the sites were excellent, the courtesy and knowledge and kindness of the tour guides is untouchable. When one is a stranger in a foreign country, knowing that you are in good safe hands is so important. Thanks to you all for a wonderful trip!

Pacz Tours!!!!! How to describe my experience :D Can you say bloody fantastic!!!! i've been 3 times with Pacz . Once by myself, the other time with my family, and finally with Bear Edward Grylls (MAN VS WILD) . Each adventure with Pacz was great, but meeting Bear was amazing!!!!! The tour guides are really great from Danny to Emil :D They're the best tour guides in San Ignacio, and they are very knowledgeable. If you want laugh along the way just talk to those guys. Why would Bear Grylls, Cameron Diaz, Andrew Zimmern go with Pacz Tours? because they are the best and number one tour company to go with. if you can follow rules then Pacz Tours is for you!!!
