Great Tour!

We had a large group 13 of us and did the cave tubing and Altun Ha tour. We had a blast with our guides Jerry and Roberto. Just a heads up this tour has a lot of driving involved. 3 plus hours. The only complaints I have is our van was pretty packed and we were lucky one of the people in our party had to stay on the ship because they weren’t feeling well. Even with one person sitting this one out our guide Jerry had to stand the whole time. We also had to fuel up on our way back to the ship which I think is a little odd. Would make sense to have the van ready to go for the day. Enough of the negative stuff. The caves are AMAZING and our guides were very knowledgeable and please understand they are pulling you through the river and caves while telling you the history of the area. A lot of work for these folks and they were great! Here is a great tip. Our guides asked us if we wanted to have our tubes hauled up for us by a local so our hands would be free to take pictures ect. I highly recommend doing this not only does it help someone out it makes the 25 min hike a lot easier. Cost was $5 per couple and worth every penny. After the caves it was off to the ruins and WOW! Again our guides Jerry and Roberto were very informative with all the history of the site. We were able to spend about 45 min at the site which was plenty. Then it was off for the hour van ride back to the ship. We were running low on time so our lunch was to go and we picked it up and ate in the van. We made it back to port with 20 min to spare. My only advise is be prepared for a lot of driving time and also be to the pick up site as early as you can so you get the full experience. We had a blast and loved our guides!

Altun Ha Cave Tubing and Zipline Tour from Belize City

We are staying in San Pedro, Belize for 2 months. When our daughter and her husband visited for a week, we booked an inland tour including zip line, cave tubing and Altun Ha ruins tour with Belize Tours Marketplace. We were picked up at the Ocean Ferry by our guide, Luis. He was fantastic. He knows so much about the history of Belize and current information. As we went from place to place he would see things like billboards or highway signs and he would tell us all about the names, events or history pertinent. In the cave, he knew about how and why certain formations were there and the Mayan significance. He was a wealth of information in the Mayan ruins as well. We couldn’t be more pleased and highly recommend this company.

Belize City Tour, Belize Cave Tubing and Alton Ha Mayan City Ruins

Belize City Tour, Belize Cave Tubing and Alton Ha Mayan City Ruins Our booked excursion was Belize City Tour, Belize Cave Tubing from cave #3, and Altun Ha Mayan City. My wife and I took our 1st Carnival Cruise and booked all of our Excursions on-line separate from the ones offered by Carnival Cruises. When we arrived in Belize we were met at the dock by our 2 tour guides Roberto Botes and Abner (Abby) with Belize Tours Marketplace. Our only real big concern besides having lots of fun was to make sure we got back to the dock to board the ship before it left for the next port. Roberto immediately set our minds at ease already knowing exactly when we had to be back and which part of the tour to do first and how much time we had at each leg of the tour. We started with the Belize City Tour as we headed out for the Belize Cave Tubing. Both Roberto and Abner were a wealth of knowledge of the City of Belize, their Country and the Mayan People. Both were very friendly, out-going, courteous and entertaining the entire tour. Abner was our main guide on the Belize Cave tubing part of the tour. It took us maybe 20 minutes to hike to cave #3. He talked to us all the way to the cave entrance telling us all about the history of the caves and the National park we were hiking through. He then attached all of our tubes together and assisted us all the way through the caves, telling us all about them as we floated through them. We were a little bit ahead of schedule as we headed out for the Mayan ruins. We stopped at a local restaurant in which Roberto treated us to an authentic Mayan lunch of rice bean and chicken. Very delicious!!! Once arriving at the Mayan Ruins Roberto gave us both an unbelievably great tour with a wealth of information about the ruins and its ancient inhabitants. I thought he must have actually lived amongst the Mayans because he knew so much about the people and the ancient ruins. My wife actually got in a little bit of shopping and we made it back to the ship with 45 minutes to spare. Anyone using Belize Fun Tours, I would recommend highly these 2 tours guides Roberto and Abner with Belize Fun tours. They were both totally outstanding in every way. Also my wife and I were the only 2 that showed up for this tour and they still took us on the tour (an outstanding private tour as it was) which I know wasn't very cost effective and I know for a fact that many other tours would not have done that for just 2 people . Many thanks to these two tour guides and Belize Fun Tours for helping to make our vacation Awesome!! FIVE STARS *****
