        Amazing, rare experience
        Booked this excursion as part of my vacation with Intrepid. It was amazing! You have to wade through the river, swim a little and climb in the caves. Bernardo our guide ensured we were informed, safe and entertained throughout the tour. It’s a rare experience. I also appreciated that this excursion was not heavily overrun by tour groups because of the need for site preservation and a limit on certified guides.

        Amazing tour, a truly unique experience!
        This was an amazing tour. JC knew an incredible amount about the history and culture of the site, as well as the nature we passed along the way. We took our time on the walk and really got to immerse ourselves in the experience. I strongly recommend this tour and JC as a guide.

        Adventurous day with fun guides
        My family of six adults booked the ATM tour with MayaWalk. The site is incredible and it's a fun adventure! Juan Carlos was an excellent tour guide - he was knowledgeable, engaging, and kept everyone safe. The hot lunch at the end of the tour was delicious!

        Review of one day tour to Tikal from San Ignatio
        We agree with the last review. We enjoyed this full day trip to the Tikal Mayan Ruins and thoroughly appreciated the time there. We had an excellent guide to teach us about the amazing society that existed 1700 years ago. The temples are spectacular! One day is enough for this tour but if you could stay in the area and experience the jungle at night and solitude in the early morning, I think that would be very nice!

        Once in a lifetime experience, a must for any traveler !!
        The views and sights were amazing ! This was definitely an adventure that I would experience again. The hike thru the jungle, climbing and crawling into the caves definitely made me feel like a real life Indiana Jones ! The guide was super informative , friendly and funny. He made the tour very enjoyable and exciting. This was definitely one off my bucket list that I would do again .

        Fun outing
        We did the 1/2 day tubing + zipline experience. Jason was our great guide, never getting stressed by the chaos that was a holiday weekend. It was a fun day. Glad we did it.

        Hightlight of Trip!
        EPIC! So well done. Eric, JC & Tate were our trio, and Eric was our little group's guide. We did the challenging but oh-so rewarding more advanced route in the cave. Eric's historical knowledge and guide prowess gave us the highlight of an overwhelmingly extraordinary time in Belize. MayaWalk was good to work with.

        Junior and MayaWalk are amazing tour guides!
        We booked this tour fairly last minute with MayaWalk. It’s hard to please a 16-year old and adults, and this fit the ticket! Junior was a fantastic, knowledgeable and funny guide. The company was professional and accommodating! This trip is filled with adventure, history and a unique experience in Belize. I’m adverse to most organized tours and would book MayaWalk again for other tours based on my experience. Our van driver (Jaheem?) and lunch chef Sadia were both wonderful and helpful as well! We were also impressed with the care and thought the Belizeans have taken in preserving their cultural heritage. The park is well-maintained and beautiful. Tips: message them in WhatsApp for questions/details. They will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel/cabanas. There are great bathrooms and changing rooms at the cave entrance.

        This is a popular tour and it should be. I've never experienced anything like this.
        There are only 25 people allowed to take groups into this cave. It's protected by the government, and it should be. - Make reservations - Shirts are mandatory - no cameras allowed - no shoes are worn in the skeleton area This is a place to be respectful to the existing Mayan people's heritage. The teens that were in our group were very respectful and well behaved. Everyone felt how special it was to be allowed to be in this place. Our guide was super-knowledgeable. The cave and the experience of being allowed to walk into the Mayan's "church" is indescribable. We had to remove our shoes for the final part of the tour. The part with the artifacts. But just pretend that this cave didn't have ancient skeletons and Mayan artifacts in here. It would still be a superb spelunking trip! My fiancé and I loved this trip, but it is not a simple walk in a cave. You have to climb, squeeze, scamper, etc. Load of fun for us (mid 40's) and for everyone else that the physical part didn't bother them, but in our group was an older man and woman and they had a very challenging time. Lots of bruises for them, I'm sure. I felt sorry for them and their family trying to help. They seemed quite miserable. Only go if you have no physical issues. It's just AMAZING!

        Even our teenagers said it was EPIC
        Even our teenagers rated this tour as EPIC!! The Actun Tunichil Muknal cave was truly incredible. Our guide, Aaron, was the best of the best. We did not feel rushed at all and he patiently answered all of our questions with his deep knowledge and expertise. You will truly savor your time without your phone or camera to fully immerse in the experience. Highly recommend seeing this site with MayaWalk Tours - they lead the way in knowledge, and priority for safety and conservation.

        Cave tubing was so cool
        The cave tubing was awesome. Josh was our guide and he was knowledgeable, funny, and made sure everyone was comfortable. I had scheduled a full day tour with combo cave tubing and zipline but Mayawalk hadn’t relayed that info to Josh so we were unable to go zip lining but Josh was very accommodating when we realized

        This cave tour was way above expectations. Damien our guide was very good at paying attention to our group and making sure everyone was having a great experience. Cave tubing was truly a highlight.

        Incredible combination of nature and Mayan history!
        The ATM tour with Mayawalk was amazing! The team was organized and professional from the drivers, to the lunch staff, to the guides. Penny was great and made it feel like we were the only ones in the cave even though it was peak tour time. Navigating the cave was awesome on its own, that you then get to learn about Mayan offerings to the gods and see artifacts- really an incredible experience. The tour was great for our kids (youngest is 10) and our guide Lenny answered all their questions.

        Absolutely fantastic tour. Hugh was an exceptional guide, his passion was evident and infectious. Our tour was unhurried and educational (but not to the point of being boring). Love how Belize is not further excavating the cave and are letting Mother Nature reveal artifacts as she chooses. Overall 10/10.

      The destinations were great! Caracol was not busy, the Rio Frio Cave was beautiful, and Rio on Pools was fun and refreshing! My only issue was that we contacted the tour company twice with dietary restriction information, and they said they could accommodate us. The allotment of food one of us could eat because of the food restrictions for lunch was the equivalent of 75 calories.

      We had a fantastic tour with Giselle as our tour guide. She brought her knowledge, passion and sense of humour to the tour. We learnt lots about Caracol from a historical, cultural, and archeological perspective. We also had a bonus tour about Belize and its history and culture on the drive there!

      While Caracol is a massive site it is still being excavated and visitors are allowed on two of the plazas. Both plazas were unique and very interesting to learn about. It was an exceptionally hot day and Giselle took extra care to ensure we remained well protected from the sun and well hydrated. The Rio Frio Pools were beautiful and very refreshing to spend an hour there after the hot day!

      We did the ATM cave tour with MayaWalk and apart from one instance of slight unprofessionalism from the guide we felt it was great. The incident in question was that he threw his dry bag into the water from height unannounced while it was dark, which splashed my partner who was wearing contact lenses in the face.

      We decided not to let this incident tarnish an otherwise good trip so we booked the Caracol tour through them a few days later.

      After leaving San Ignacio we switched to a larger bus to join another group of 12 and carried on to the Rio Feio cave and Caracol. The tour at Caracol was good and lunch was fine. However, after leaving the Caracol site on the way to the final stop at the pools the guide casually mentioned that upon leaving we would drop the main group off first, which would mean an hour and a half detour before returning to San Ignacio. We told him we were not happy with this and he did call the office to arrange a pickup at the place we originally changed buses, but we feel that this is the way it should have been arranged originally and that we shouldn't have had to raise our concerns for it to happen. We got back to San Ignacio at 530, if we had not complained we would not have been back until 630/7.

      We feel that for $125 per person this tour represented poor value and we felt that we had effectively just been lumped onto another group's private tour.

      My best moment at Belize! Caracol was pure magic. Not crowded, full of nature. Caana was amazing and being there was like time travel. Etidio was the best guide: knowledgeable, fun, kind and so attentive!

      Giselle was a wonderful guide for the two of us. Beautiful drive to the amazing site of Caracol. Howler monkeys in the adjoining jungle to the ruins. What a view from the top!
      The cave was interesting and the pools with the waterfalls were refreshing.
      So glad that we went on this tour with this company.

      Excellent trip. Jason was a fantastic tour guide and told us about Mayan civilisation in detail. Totally interesting. Good lunch and cool down in the Frio pools afterwards.
