Not sure if I’m spelling his name right but Kadeem was excellent!! He was very informative, friendly and engaging! I would recommend this tour and him to anyone anytime He showed us an amazing time he definitely went above and beyond for us! He was on time to pick us up from the water taxi and drop off. All the activities were well planned, fun and exciting!! Lunch was delicious! I would definitely book again with this company ..... if you can request a guide get Kadeem! ( I really hope Im spelling that right!!)
We are a family of 5 with 2 teens and 1 pre-teen. We took the 6am ferry from San Pedro to Belize City, where we met our tour guide Kareem. We were able to purchase a quick breakfast for the very comfortable and air conditioned ride in a nice van to our first stop. We haven been on tours before in buses - this was so much comfortable! The zip lining was great and Hector was so funny and friendly. Next stop was cave tubing- there is a bit of a walk over some rocky terrain but the ride down the river is worth it. Kareem points out all sort of plant life and interesting bits of info along the way- loved the Mimosa Plant that goes to sleep when touched- one of my favorite parts of the day. A traditional Belizean meal for lunch, which everyone loved even my picky 11 year old. Then about an hour and half car ride to the ruins- a little long- but it gave the kids a chance to take a nap and we were able to enjoy the natural beauty of Belize through the car windows. The ruins were amazing and all along the way our private tour guide, Kareem, was ever knowledgeable and attentive. Then a comfortable car risen beck to the 5:30 ferry- I was a little worried about time - but we made it back with 5 minutes to spare. Kareem knows his back roads of Belize to avoid traffic. It is a long day but if you want to pack in as much as you can on your trip to the mainland from Ambergris Caye - this is the trip to take.
We did this as an excursion from a cruise, and out of our whole trip (7 days), this was my favorite. One thing that made it particularly enjoyable and fun was our guide, Kadim. He told us about the history of Belize and all the things that were going on at the moment politically. It made us feel more of a connection to this beautiful country. We were able to go to see the ruins at Altun Ha and then cave tubing. I was going to say this was a once in a lifetime trip, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we went again!
Roberto (tour guide) made this an amazing trip! Apart from just the sheer natural awesomeness of the sights and the experience of being there, Roberto was a font of info about all things Belize. He taught us about culture, economics, history, wildlife... and took us for one of the best meals we had the whole time we were in the Western Caribbean! Yo jou could tell how proud he was of his country and his input made for an incredible time. We saw groups from other tour companies and they were clearly not getting the personalized attention that we were enjoying. I really was blown away by his interaction with us. I would definitely use Belize Funtours (and request Roberto) if I ever make it back. 5 Stars!!!
We had the most amazing time on our visit to Belize. I can't say enough about how great the people are and how fresh the food is. It was great to have had all our accommodations, excursions and transportation taken care of before we even arrived. All our guides were very kind and informative. I feel that we experienced so much in just one short week. Our trip started in San Ignacio for 3 days of exploring Mayan archeological sights, swimming with waterfalls, exploring caves and topped off with a few breath taking ziplines. Then off on the water taxi to enjoy Ambergris island life. From there we cruised around on our golf cart, ate amazing seafood, snorkeled, sailed and swam in the most beautiful ocean waters. And once again topped off with a fun cessna flight with amazing views back to the mainland for our departure. Just GO!
