This was my first time visiting Belize and I did this tour on my very first full day...when I tell you I had the BEST time. Brian from Salt Life Tours was our tour guide and he was so great. Really personable and funny and really knew what he was talking about. The zip lining was so fun. Unfortunately the water was too high from the rain so we could not do the cave tubing tour. But everything else was great, the weather is completely out of everyones control. Would highly recommend!

Brian, our tour guide, was THE BEST! He was funny, kind, smart, knowledgeable, and he went above and beyond to get us to the ferry port in time for our ferry in spite of the fact that we had left our luggage at our airport. He is a gem! The tour was really interesting and so much fun - don’t hesitate, because it is worth every penny.

This was the 3rd best day of my life! Only followed by the birth of my daughter & my wedding day. Brian was the best guide ever! He took his time with us, never lost his patience and went above the call of duty to ensure we had the best excursions ever. Going to check out other tours when I get back to Belize City before leaving the country. The only complaint I have is that you have not expanded tours to the southern areas. Excellent service!
