What to expect
  • Kick off your tour with pickup at your Belize City hotel, where you’ll board an air-conditioned coach destined for the atmospheric ruins of Xunantunich. During the 2.5-hour journey to Xunantunich, your guide provides history-rich commentary designed to enhance your understanding of the Mayan archeological site, which dates back 200 AD. After taking a hand-cranked ferry across the Mopan River, you’ll arrive at the archeological site and take a guided tour. Capture photographs from the top of El Castillo, a 40-meter (130-foot) temple from which the Guatemalan border can be seen. Then, after you revitalize with lunch, you’ll hike through exotic rainforest to a network of caves and climb into an inflated inner tube. Leave the light behind as you float into the mouth of the cavern, with only your headlamp to light the way, and embark on a journey through the subterranean city. Back on dry land, your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Belize City hotel.

A day to remember
Aug 2021 • Family
Our guide, Pablo, made this truly a wonderful experience. He was an amazing guide! He was so knowledgeable and made the trip both educational and fun! Great jokes too! We enjoyed his tour of the ruins and an authentic local lunch. Our local guide, Rosa, took us on our way through tubing in the cave and again, she too was very knowledgeable and friendly. A perfect day for my family and I. Highly recommend!!!!

Great Experience Better Belize It
Mar 2021
Our tour guide Paul notified us in advance to his arrival. Our Airbnb address was incorrect but he was still able to locate our lodging . Our guide Paul was extremely personable, relatable, knowledgeable about historical and contemporary facts about Belize and provided us with exemplary service and an unforgettable experience.

During the drive he pointed out local landmarks, historical sites, answered our endless assortment of questions and brought us up to speed on contemporary matters pertaining to the country.

When we arrived at Xuantunich Paul took us to each of structure offering insight as to its significance and purpose. He also assisted us with taking photos and answering any questions that we had on the archaeological site.

Cave tubing was extremely fun and Paul ensured that we were safe, having a good time as well as gave us a history lesson on caves in Belize and how they related to the ancient Mayan civilization.

After tubing my sister and I enjoyed a beverage we purchased from a local vendor who placed rum, coconut milk, fresh juice and melon into a half pineapple.

Paul was kind enough to let us stop at a grocery store within close proximity to our AirBnb. He also provided us with restaurant recommendations and familiarized us with the general area that we stayed in.

Private Belize Adventure provided an excellent tour and an overall amazing experience. Please request Paul as he will certainly show you a great time along with educating you.

James and Goldburn did an amazing job from the moment they picked us up at the Maya Air Plane in Belize City. Welcomed with open arms, a clean van with AC took us to a very nice breakfast spot! We drove to Xunantunich (Shoe-nan-too-nich) and they explained different things along the way. Goldburn took us through the ruins and knew exactly what he was talking about! Afterward, we went to lunch at a roadside restaurant just before the cave tubing. Excellent food again! The cave tubing was excellent and Golburn took us through showing all the great spots! Would go again with these guys!

Spent two full days with Private Adventure Tours..Loved it!
Sep 2018 • Couples
We booked two tours with Private Adventure Tours in Belize. Our driver and guide, Ellsworth was extremely knowledgeable, on time, and really made our trip to Belize memorable. The first day we did Xunantunich and Cave Tubing. The site was amazing, he was courteous with our pace and gave commentary along the way. Cave tubing was really fun and a cool off from the morning trek. The next day we did the Lamanai Temple site. Ellsworth drove us there and Carlos took us on the 25 mile river boat trip to the site. The beauty of Belize via the river is not to be missed. Birds, flowers, and the occasional croc make the trip go fast and easy. The Lamanai site is well kept and gorgeous. I would recommend Private Belize Adventure to anyone coming to this area.

Amazing Ruins and cave experience
Oct 2017
This tour was very well run. These ruins are worth the trip. The cave tubing was perfect for an introduction to cave tubing. Beautiful all the way around. Great staff and Tour guides at all locations.
