  • I booked a 1 Day Private Tour of the Xunantunich Pyramids and Cave Tubing with my friend. There were two of us and the guide - Carla Juan. I have seen a lot of Pyramids and Ancients Sites around the world and have had a lot of guides, but Carla was by far the BEST. She is very personable and knowledgeable of the site, as well as the history of the whole area. She picked us up early in the morning and we were the first to arrive at this site. We toured the site for approx. 3 hours and she was extremely accommodating and flexible with our time, where we wanted to go, and what we wanted to see for the whole day. We stopped at a little Mayan village for lunch and proceeded to the Cave Tubing adventure. She explained the whole topography of the region for us during our trek to the start of the site as well as the trip down the river itself. She had plenty of water for us that day as well. It was by far, one of the best experiences I have had on these types of tours. I would highly recommend her for a Private Tour like I had. Thanks Carla, I will be seeing you again.

  • To say that this tour was amazing is an understatement. Everything was perfect. Carla our guide was extremely knowledgeable and it made the experience better to have someone that not only knows their information but also loves to share that information with others. A must when in Belize!!!

  • Great day trip made even better by the tour company and guide Leon. We stayed in a rented home Hillview House -Airbnb and they picked us up at the house. To make sure they knew where the house was they did a drive by the night before so there wouldn't be any delays. Trip started at the welcome center where our guide gave us a detailed history of the site and culture. Then on the the ruins where you can climb all the structures. If you are afraid of heights you may not want to climb to the top as there are no hand rails or railings. After touring the site our guide broke out a home cooked lunch of local food which was excellent. Chicken, coconut rice, salsa, plantains and pineapple. After that it was a 1 hour drive to cave tubing. A 45 minute walk leads to a 1 hour trip through 2 caves and then the river back to the start. Bring your own water shoes or you can rent them there for 3.00 USD.

  • We Had a Great Time at Xunantunich and Cave Tubing. Tour guide gave terrific explanations of Mayan culture at some recently excavated ruins. Tubing was fun. Walking shoes a must for walking 20 minutes on river rock path. Ate a local lunch. Local guide customized tour to accommodate us as older tourists. Assume everything you bring cave tubing will get wet. Large operation with life jackets, helmets, headlamps, and showers when you are done.

  • Awesome trip. Carla was a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. She went out of her way to make sure that my girlfriend and I enjoyed our day and she even made several out of the way stops when we asked. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
