Great Sights and Knowledgeable Guide
Jan 2020
Paul was a fantastic guide, and we had a great time on this excursion. Unfortunately, our cave tubing experience was canceled due to weather, but Paul pivoted quickly and we visited the Howler Monkey Reserve which was much better than I anticipated. The monkey climbed down out of the trees and onto our shoulders. We were supposed to do Altun Ha first, but Paul noticed the weather pattern and changed plans so that we were able to accomplish both experiences with little rain. Altun Ha was beautiful. Paul showed us around and discussed the history. We also go to try some Governor's plums. Finally, we stopped at a small restaurant on the way back that was great. I had some stewed chicken, beans, and rice that may have been my favorite meal on the trip.

Didn’t know what to expect
Jul 2019 • Family
I gotta be honest, I did not know what to expect. I really didn’t believe the reviews as being legitimate but I gotta say that it was all true. I’m not a person who normally leaves a review but I felt compelled to speak highly of our trip. Ellsworth was awesome especially considering how late we got to the port. Please do everything possible to be on the first transport, you will remember me when you rushing all over the place. Ellsworth was super funny and very informative. Always asked ya how we were doing and if we had a great time. The tubing is a once in a lifetime experience so I highly recommend it. This specific tour has you going in two opposite directions so please leave early so you can take your time at the ruins. When we go back we will be requesting Ellsworth to guide us to other awesome adventures!

Best day ever!
May 2019
My husband, 3 adult children (ages 22-25), and I spent the day with Paul on 5/29/19. We were on the first tender of the morning from our cruise ship as recommended, and went to straight to Altun Ha. He spent the majority of the drive sharing his vast knowledge of historical and current Belizian facts, and the time went by quickly. He timed our arrival so that we missed the big crowds from the cruise ships, and we nearly had the entire ruins site to ourselves. Climbing the ruins is physically demanding, but worth the effort--the views from the top are amazing!! We then headed off to the cave tubing site, which was by far the coolest thing we have ever done as a family--Paul was an excellent guide through the caves, and again very informative along the journey. We stopped for lunch at one of Paul's favorite local spots, the Teaky Tavern (yes, that's how it is spelled), and had great local food at an inexpensive price. We then headed back to the tender dock in Belize City after an incredible day. I highly recommend this tour, and especially this tour guide. We will definitely use Paul again upon our next trip to Belize!

Fantastic Experience!
My family and I had Paul as our guide and he was outstanding. He was friendly and knowledgeable. We greatly appreciated the small size of our group. When we were tubing we were able to observe larger groups which didn't have an intimate feeling like ours. Paul was on time for our pickup and showed us the beauty of Belize. We were not rushed in any way. The caves were amazing and Altun Ha was awe inspiring.

My sister and niece added zip lining after tubing and had a blast. are planning to return and when we do we hope to connect with Paul and have a different adventure. We had the best chicken and beer stop to cap off our day. Highly recommend Private Belize Adventure.

Fun tour and great guide
Apr 2019 • Family
Going on a private tour is the way to go. Our guide, Ellsworth did a great job. Even better considering that our ship was late in getting us into port.
The cave tubing was so much fun... this is definitely something that you shouldn't miss.
Between Altun Ha and the tubing, Ellsworth filled us in on a lot of Belize history and what life is like in Belize. It was very interesting.
For our lunch, he stopped at this little obscure place on the side of the road. Then he brought out our lunch of chicken and rice in takeout containers. OMG! This was about the BEST chicken that I have ever had, anywhere, in the world! It was so tender and succulant and flavorful. We were really surprised.
The nice thing about this trip is that we got to do two unique things and that type of excursion was not available through Carnival. Most tours have the tubing and zip lining. We can do zip lining most anywhere, but to see Mayan ruins AND do river tubing in one excursion is great.
Also, being a private tour, it was so nice to have just the four of us and the guide and not have to worry about the needs of a bus load of strangers..

Perfect Day
Mar 2019 • Couples
Took us longer than expected to get a tender from our cruise ship to port, but luckily the delay was not too great and did not impact on the days activities.
Our guide was Paul, he was informative and interesting. First stop was the cave tubing, initially you have quite a hike - burning off the cruise ship buffet breakfast calories -carrying your tube to the caves but once there Paul gently paddles you through the caves making for an amazing unforgettable experience.
Then onto Altun Ha which was fascinating.
Overall the tour was great value and Paul made for a fantastic tour guide. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Belize.

Awesome tour with a wonderful guide!!!!
Apr 2019 • Friends
Our group of six had a private tour with our guide Paul. He was ready to answer any and all of our questions. We went cave tubing at the beginning of the tour to miss the crowds. It was a beautiful and relaxing float through the cave. The river was low, but Paul kept us moving the wole trip. There were showers and a place to change out of your wet clothes to the rest of the tour comfortable. Stopped for lunch, that was included. Then we went to the ruins. He was very informative about the history and surroundings. Paul was the awesome star tour guide. Excellent well worth the price.

Wonderful combination tour!
Mar 2019 • Couples
Paul was a terrific host. We were with one other couple from another cruise line with a slightly different disembarkation time and Paul made sure we all made it back on time while also taking the time to make specials interesting stops for us along the way, like a wonderful lunch stop for rice and beans plate that was wonderfully delicious.

He had us go to the tubing tour first, to avoid the bus loads of people - this was awesome as our little group of 4 (5 with Paul) were all alone on the water and in the caves, which made the tour very special!!

Altun Ha was gorgeous as well as interesting.

Paul was great at answering questions and putting a special touch on everything we did. Thank you Paul!!

Fantastic! Once in our Lifetime
Mar 2019 • Couples
Just completed our Caribbean Princes Cruise. This excursion was the high-light of our trip. We booked this excursion through trip advisor, which was really easy. Our excursion lead name was Paul. He was excellent. Right mix of local, cave and Altun Ha expertise and fun. He met us right out of the cruise terminal in Belize City, holding a sign with our name on it. There was just four of us for the day.
We immediately embarked straight to the Cave Tubing. We were the first ones there ahead of all the buses, who move people around like cattle. Our small group was able to experience the peace, serenity and total darkness of the cave. Paul was very knowledgeable of the formation of the caves and how the Mayans used them. As we were walking out, we passed multiple large and noisy groups. So glad for our unique private tour. After the cave, we changed close (dressing rooms and showers at the park) and headed for Altun Ha, which is about an hours drive from the cave. Most of the large groups had left by the time we got there. It was perfect. Paul gave us many unique facts about the site and the people who used to inhabit it.
I HiIGHLY recommend this tour.
TIPS: Be on the first tender off your boat, so you can have that unique cave experience. We stopped for a light lunch (not included) and were back in Port by 3:00 PM.
