    8 of us went on this fabulous day long trip. We tubed, went on a hike to a bluff for some spectacular views then cooled off at the end of the day with a swim in a waterfall. Ian was a lot of fun, very knowledgeable of the fauna/flora and Belizean culture. Definitely a highlight

    Hello Hutchison Family Thank you for being so easy to work with. We were happy to help you put together a wonderful Belize vacation. You enjoyed both the jungle and the sea. The local transportation allowed you to explore some of Placencia. We sincerely love our little Belize and it is why we share it with such joy. Thank you for your awesome attitude and your openness to enjoy Belize. I am glad to hear you had a wonderful time. We sincerely appreciate that you gave us the opportunity to provide these services to you. Tropical Regards, Megs

    This was one of the coolest experiences and adventures! Doyle (tour guide) was AMAZING and we would highly recommend him. If you love adventure, then you would love the hike in the jungle, floating down the river, hiking to the waterfall, and then rock sliding!!!!!!! GREAT

Although we do offer a quality tour Jaguar Preserve tour, we are aware that Doyle is simply awesome too:-) So here's to D'tourz <3 Megs
