We had an excellent time on this tour January 17, 2017. A very friendly guide named Jose met us at our hotel promptly at the time we requested with a big sign with our names on it. It was easy to find him and there wasn't any question about where we were supposed to be. He then drove the four us in his spacious SUV to the Altun Ha ruins where he told us all about the history and culture of the site. Jose really knew his stuff! Then he drove us to his house where we got into 2 jeeps for the jungle part of tour we even got to meet Jose's wife and his two sons Jaden and Miguel. Driving through the jungle was very muddy with deep mudholes along with several muddy crossings as deep as the floor of the jeep. If you choose to drive it's best that you are skilled at driving in mud and pretty extreme offroad conditions. Halfway through we stopped at the cave entrance. Hiking up to the cave was steep and the opening to the cave was small but it was all worth it as we went into descended into 3 separate chambers of the cave and saw all sorts of stalagtites and stalagmites...and BATS! Be in relatively good physical condition to do this. Back at the jeep we finished the drive through the jungle then drove to a large but quiet pavilion for lunch which was already prepared and waiting for us. The local cuisine was outstanding and we could eat as much as we wanted. Marta the cook was wonderful! After lunch we drove back to the city and toured more of the downtown area. Jose was an outstanding tour guide. Not only did he know the city well he also taught us a lot about people of Belize, it's culture, its plants we even tasted a plant used for making allspice trees, and wildlife in the jungle. It was an exciting and unforgettable tour that I would highly recommend to anyone. It was well worth the price.
