Barton Creek Tour - Excellent
Jul 2021
This tour was great! Rudy (the guide) was so knowledgeable on every topic and took really great care of us. The drive to the cave is beautiful and the actual canoe ride was the perfect amount of time. Lunch afterwards was excellent, as well. Definitely book with this company. Highly recommend.

Fun experience!
Off road vehicle required. Jessie our guide navigated the treacherous road; nothing we would do on our own. Along the way he pointed out many interesting landmarks and we learned a lot about Belizean culture. We enjoyed paddling through the caves and the serene atmosphere. Very interesting experience and highly recommend for those who want something less physically demanding but fun and informative. Thank you Jessie for a lovely morning, learned a lot and enjoyed your knowledge and great sense of humour.

Hi Luke, We agree, the journey to Barton Creek is an adventure of its own full of natural features of landscapes to browse along the way. With a guide like Jessie, it is always a fun experience. We are happy to hear you had a good time.

We had the great fortune of spending our Barton Creek tour with Rudy who was more than an excellent guide! He provided insightful, educational and engaging conversation regarding the Barton Creek area flora, fauna, history. The tour of the cave was amazing and a great introduction to the complex Mayan history surrounding San Pedro. I would highly recommend this!

Creek tour and Big Rock Falls
Aug 2019 • Couples
Last minute I decided to add Big Rock Falls and they where super accommodating. They messaged me in advance to let me know of list of items they would provide and what I would need to bring which was extremely helpful. Our guide Rudy was extremely knowledgeable and kind. Provided us with lots of information on the history and culture of the area and the cave, as well as, lots of water (very important since it was extremely hot when we went). Highly recommend this tour!

Hi Naadiya, I'm so glad you enjoyed Barton Creek and Big Rock Falls and I agree it is a perfect tour for a hot day in Belize. I hoped you got some awesome pics and a water massage at Big Rock. We hope to see you soon in Belize. Maybe you can hike to the 1000ft falls on your next trip.
