    Amazing experience! Robert was such a great guide - learned so much, he made us laugh the entire day and went above and beyond to make our experience perfect. His love for Belize made us fall more and more in love with the beautiful country! Definitely the highlight of our trip - highly recommend!

    Robert was a wonderful guide with so much knowledge! We loved walking around these stunning ruins. The pontoon adventure was gorgeous!! Calm water, jungle, birds and even a baby alligator... climbing the waterfalls and swimming at a little beach were a great end to this day. We enjoyed Robert so much that we booked him for a tour the very next day!

    This trip is well worth it! And our guide, Robert the owner of the company is exemplary! Our day started with a tour of the, Xunantunich, the Mayan ruins. The ruins themselves are amazing, but Robert made the experience even more special due to his knowledge of Mayan history and these particular ruins. He is a very patient, personable, and friendly guy.

    After seeing the ruins, we drove through beautiful countryside to visit several waterfalls. Since Robert grew up in the area on his family's farm he had lots of fun stories to tell. To get to the waterfalls, we cruised the river on Robert's pontoon boat, a lovely experience. Once there we were able to swim very close to the falls and float around with inner tubes. Robert is very good with a camera/iPhone so we got some really good photos.

    All in all this was a once in a life time experience! Thanks again, Robert.
