This was a great tour. We booked while staying with Jaguar Reef Lodge and got to go out with Terry from Monkey River Village. We saw howler monkeys, crocs, tarantulas, lots of birds, manatees, rays, iguanas, and probably other things I forgot about. You also get to visit Monkey River Village for lunch (we had stew chicken and snook) and it was great food. Our kids (3,6,8) were along and loved it as well. Terry was an amazing guide with his knowledge and storytelling and answered everyone of our questions. Surprised there aren't more reviews for this tour but it is worth your time and money. There were lots of bugs so be prepared with spray.

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide Alex was very informative and friendly. The ride itself was so relaxing and we saw lots of wildlife (birds, manatee, crocodiles, monkeys and a tarantula!) A special call out to Rose in reservations who helped arrange it all. She was so helpful and responsive up until the day of the tour.

Our guide was Ralph. They should nickname him "eagle eye" He saw birds and monkeys and crocodiles all day long. He was great! Bring your bug spray or wear long pants. We saw a ton of monkeys and Manatees on the way back to the marina. Ralph was informative and he lives right on the river and he knew it well. Other tours went flying by us, and missed birds and even monkeys. We did lunch at Alice's restaurant and it was delicious. Highly recommend this tour! ENJOY!

Our guide picked us up on the water just across the street from our hotel. Monkey River was quite a distance from the mainland and we thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride there and back. Seeing starfish and manatees was amazing and definitely the highlight of my trip.
If you are the type of person that does not like to disturb wildlife in their habitat don’t go. After a short hike the guides make a lot of noise that DISTURBS the monkeys and makes them howl. Wonder how guides know right where the monkeys will be? On our trip the guide encouraged someone to pick up a starfish.
This is the reason I don’t recommend.
We had a beautiful, long ride back on the water which I loved.

Hi Karen, Thank you for choosing Untame Belize Tours and Transfers for your Monkey River Tour. We apologize for the way the situation made you feel. All guides howler at the monkeys once they are in the jungle as that's how you're able to find and see them. As the howler back to you. However, I am glad you still enjoyed your trip overall.
