Owner description: Charlie's Tours are very educational, ecological-oriented and adequate for school kids and students of all ages. Charlie offers an excellent ecological tour on the trails just prior to having to tube through the mysterious caves where the Maya priests once prayed to and worshiped the Gods of the Underworld. At Charlie's Cave Tubing we cater especially to our Eco-friendly guests. We are very serious about the conservation and preservation of the caves. We are sure you will find this a very relaxing and pleasant experience.

“A fantastic tour - thanks Charlie!”
Reviewed 9 May 2011

We had a fantastic time with Charlie on the cave tubing tour last month! We booked this tour due to reviews on trip advisor and it didnt disappoint!

We were a family of 4 and were on our own, we loved every moment. Even driving out of belize city charlie was giving us a bit of a tour and explaining where we were going, the drive there isnt too long, but the last bit of road is very bumpy! but that just adds to the experience!

Make sure you take some good waterproof shoes, i took some crocs, but sandals which attach onto your feet are good, dont use flip flops - you will only lose them! Talking of losing things if you're taking a waterproof camera attach it to you well! Someone in another tour group lost their digital one...an expensive mistake!

There are 2 great things about this tour: the first being charlie, he was fantastic and made the day! The second being that you are in a small group - the official cruise ones are a lot larger and float through the caves a lot faster! Whilst we got to sit back and enjoy it!

Thanks Charlie for an amazing trip - make sure you book with charlie if you're cave tubing in Belize!

“Charlies Angels”
Reviewed 4 May 2011

Charlie Chan is an incredibly knowledgable guy and had the most amazing experiences on this tour. It was just 3 of us and we literally felt like we were the only ones in the jungle/caves. You get to see and learn so much more with charlie than with others. He truly made our cave tubing into an unforgetable experience. Thanks Charlie!

“Charlies Cave Tubing was GREAT!”
Reviewed 27 April 2011

Our family of 9 had the pleasure of a Carnival cruise on the Valor April 10 - 17. While in Belize we went cave tubing with Chariles Cave Tubing tours. Charlie was GREAT! We had a blast and it was nice to be part of a smaller group. PLUS we paid half the price the ship excursion was charging. Thanks Charlie for a FUN day!

“Best Cave Tubing Excursion Provider”
Reviewed 12 April 2011

Cave tubing in Belize is one of the few activities where it is universally agreed that private excursion providers are better than the cruise ship excursions. We, however, were not interested in the local lunches and the associated time to eat lunch that is included with most of the cave tubing providers. Additionally, we were worried about the waiting at the pier to assemble groups and waiting for members of your group doing other activities that sometimes occurs with the other providers. Our solution was to book a "Private" cave tubing excursion for our family of 4 with Charlie Chan.

We were sure to get on the earliest tender we could and Charlie was easy to find right at the pier. We left right away in an air conditioned van and we were literally the 1st vehicle to pull into the cave tubing location. As the 1st people on the trail for the day, we were privileged to see and hear howler monkeys that were certainly gone once other groups began arriving. Charlie's experience and knowledge was unmatched. His knowledge of the plant life made our extended rainforest hike the highlight of our cruise. We opted to take a longer hike as we are a fit family and this enabled us to see more caves while tubing. We had the river to ourselves in the higher caves.

We would advise any cruise ship passenger to use Charlie's Cave Tubing and if it is within your budget, arrange for a private tour for a once in a lifetime experience.

What a fantastic day. A friend and I booked Charlie through Grumpy and Happy tours. They arranged everything for us and it all went smoothly. Charlie met us at the airport and then the fun began. He was knowledgeable about the area and gave us lots of history. He also kept us laughing the whole trip.

We booked the extended cave tour and so we had an additional hike through the rainforest. It was beautiful! When we got to the top cave it took our breath away. I can't say enough wonderful things about the cave tubing and Charlie. I still can't wipe the smile off my face.
