Better than the cruise tours!

Jeff was an amazing guide and an exceptional host. We had a great time and saw howler monkeys on river while cave tubing. We got in before the big cruise tours and had a personalized experience. Thank you Jeff!

Fred was our tour guide. When we booked we didn’t realize that it would be just my wife and myself. It worked out great and he was friendly, professional and very accommodating. Loved the cave experience. The ruins provided some insight into ancient Mayan civilization and Fred was very knowledgeable. The lunch was simple and delicious.

I really enjoyed this excursion because it was just my party and the tour guide not all the extra people like you’d normally get on an excursion. We had Norman for our tour guide he told us lots about Belize and the places we toured. He went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. You get to climb up on the ruins to get a nice view of everything surrounding you. They have handrails which is nice. The cave tubing was very relaxing. We hiked 20ish min through the jungle where Norman shared lots with us about the trees and animals we saw. Then we made it to the tubing spot where we just sat in tubes and floated for about an hour and a half. I would def requesting Norman for your tour if you can. We left feeling like we had made a new friend!
Response from Host, June 2022

We had a great day with Jeff. The sights were incredible. Jeff handled all the details and the trip was very smooth. And he was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Belize. I would highly recommend this tour.

Altan Ha and Monkey Sanctuary
Dara_C, Nov 2021
Went to Altan Ha Mayan ruins. Very well maintained area and are able to climb the Temples.
My group and I opted to go to the monkey sanctuary rather than cave tubing and it was a a great experience interacting with and feeding the monkeys.
Our tour guide, Percy, was knowledgeable and we had a good time. Ended up being only my friend and I on the tour which was nice not to be with alot of other people and crowd.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Personalized to give you the best possible services and experiences! Thank you for reviewing us.

Mary_L, Mar 2020
Awesome excursion! Cave tubing was incredible! Tyrek (Mr. T) is an excellent guide. Beautiful views and surreal experience. Altun Ha was also amazing. Guide provided just the right amount of information about the Mayans and the culture. We also got a quick tour of the city. One con was the tour was a bit pressed for time. A lot of distance between the sites. No speed limits in Belize.
Response from Host, Mar 2020

Amazing Trip in Belize
Roberto_S, Feb 2020
It was an amazing experience seeing Altun Ha and tubing through the underground river system. Norman, our guide, is very friendly and knowledgeable. He took care of us throughout the trip. The insights he provided about Belize is valuable. More importantly, we experienced what Belizean hospitality is and we were treated like friends rather than visitors.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Thanks for choosing Royal Belizean Adventures and also for choosing Belize! The next time you return here you know what company to book with for the best amdost personable experiences.

Andrea_O, Jan 2020
Do not pass go. Do not collect 200 dollars. Just book this tour. Jeff and Percy hooked us up.
This was a group of 4 girls on a cruise who wanted to go experience Belize during our time in port. We booked this due to reviews I saw and boy did the reviews understate how well we were taken care of.
The only problem we had was locating Jeff and that was my fault because I didn’t have a screenshot of that page of info. We met another nice tourist guide who called Jeff for us and then helped direct us to where we needed to be
After Jeff picked us up he gave us a tour through the country to the cave tubing. He hooked us up with local drinks before going into the river. And took us through the caves. He pointed out awesome rock formations and plants and animals as we went through. Afterwards we had these amazing tamales that he picked up from a home on the way. Then we went to the ruins and got us some more amazing food. Climbing to the top of the ruins was a high light.
On the way back he took us to see some sights. Including his project that he’s working on to better Belize and the country.
It was so worth the money and
Response from Host, Jan 2020
We are truly honoured to have been able to make your Belizean dreams come true! Thank you for sharing your review and for being honest. Jeff and Percy will definitely be around whenever you decide to return and will be ready to take you anywhere anytime.

Muy mala experiencia la compañía Royal belleza aventurera cambió nuestra ruta diciendo que algún ha estaba en mantenimiento, cosa que fue mentira, nos hicieron pagar almuerzo pues nos mandaron a otro Tour q no tenía incluido. al final fuimos a algún ha pagando 150.00 más y no estaba en mantenimiento. nos destacaron y queremos nos devuelvan nuestro dinero
Response from Host, Feb 2020
We would like to apologize for your dissatisfaction and complaints with this tour. However, we would like to clear a few false statements made in your review.
Firstly, you booked the tour just hours before the start time, and we immedeately contacted you to let you know that due to a minimum passenger amount not being met, we would have to cancel and give a full refund. The second option was to join our other group at the time who were doing the zipline and cave tubing with lunch; to which you agreed and instructed that you still wanted to proceed. You were given delicious local food and even a fresh squeezed fruit juice, and so I don't know why you would say that we did not buy you lunch.
RBA has also maintained it's trustworthiness and it's customer dependability in each tour since the creation of this business and we have the numerous highly rated reviews to prove it.
Finally, we have nothing to do with you booking another tour for $150, as this was not booked with us or any of our guides (you know this), therefore it's unfair of you to blame us for their mistakes.
