“Fantastic trip for me as it had all my favourite activities - wildlife and birdwatching, archaeology/history, and water-based activities eg. canoeing, boat and lagoon trips, swimming and particularly fantastic snorkelling. We were very unfortunate with the weather at Placencia so all boat trips were cancelled. Wilfred decided to leave Tikal earlier to see if we could get earlier ferry to Caye Caulker - we didn't manage this but still managed to organise a 2 -hour snorkelling trip on arrival, which was great, and partly made up for the lost trip at Placencia. I don't understand why you shortened the trip at Caye Caulker, because the snorkelling and other boating activities there are superb. I was very envious of the 3 people with the extra night there. I realise you changed it because of some criticism in the past - but nearly everyone on our trip went specifically to Belize, rather than any other Central American country because of the excellent snorkelling. It is also not that unusual to have a spell of adverse weather so you need more than 2 whole days on trip for possible trips. There are also lots of boat trip potential even if you are not interested in getting in the water.”

“The mix up on tour end date was very weird, but thankfully you handled it well. Will was very gracious and helpful to everyone with the complicated transfers.”

“Although not an issue, we were not made aware of certain cost associated with the trip; firstly the cost to exit Belize into Guatemala ($20 each), and whilst a good idea as it saved any issues not knowing what to tip the staff the trips/excursions, we were not aware until we arrived that we were expected to each pay an amount for these tips. As I say, it was a good idea and we had no issues with the concept.”
