    My husband and I had an amazing time on this tour with our driver Jeremy and guide Fernando. Fernando was knowledgeable and attentive to our safety while we were in the cave. I was concerned about the river crossings and some of the physical demands required of this tour but Fernando was helpful. I know some others complain about the bumpy ride but it's nothing compared to the drive out to Caracol. The food and rum punch was a life saver after such an exhausting day! All in all, it was a great experience and a must-do adventure if you are in Belize.

We had an amazing tour w Jeremy and Edward. Edward was so knowledgeable about every part of the tour. He gave knowledge about the jungle surroundings on the way to the cave such as medicinal plants and the insects. We ate termites for the first time! Once in the cave he was very attentive to safety and the where we where. His knowledge was the best! We will definitely get ahold of him again for a camping trip! Jeremy thank you for the ride and the awesome lunch and rum punch!
