Elio was an amazing tour guide! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Xunantunich. The cave tubing was a favorite. On our way out of the cave we got to hear howler monkey's. This was the best excursion of our trip to Belize.

Ellio with St. Bernard’s Tours made this trip. He was so knowledgeable, friendly and funny. The caves were closed due to rain, but that didn’t dampen the day at all. We were offered great alternatives and ended up at Big Rock Falls after the ruins. Highly recommend.

Thank you for taking time to write your review. We are really happy you enjoyed your tour as a last minute change due to flooding can indeed dampen the day but thank you for taking it all in your stride. Big Rock is one of our favourite spots and at St leonard's we are so happy you had a great day with the amazing Elio.

Elio, our guide, was fantastic! The way he told us about the Mayan Ruins history, the caves and answered our questions about Belize made it evident that he was passionate about history, Belize, and his career. While floating through the caves, Elio told us a Mayan legend, and the passion behind his voice made the cave floating even better. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour, which made it feel exclusive and gave us the opportunity to go at our own pace. Can't praise this tour enough, especially for travelers with limited time! Gives you the chance to see Mayan Ruins and explore caves. Thanks, Elio!

Wonderful Day with Elio

We had a wonderful time with Elio at Xunantunich and cave tubing. Elio was so knowledgeable and captivating. His information enhanced our experiences greatly and made this a day to remember. Lunch was amazing and my food allergies were taken very seriously. I cannot express how much I enjoyed this day. Worth every penny.

The day started out with problems... All the rain cancelled the Cave Tubing, but the Tour Company did us well. They gave us multiple choices. One being Xunantunich only and have the afternoon off. The other... going to Cahal Pech and Mayan Chocolate making. My wide and I wanted a full day adventure and it was. Our tour guide Eliodoro (told us to call him Elio, because that is what his friends call him) made it an incredible day... even with the rain, it did not hold us back. Elio was a wealth of information. I have a Masters in Anthropology and I learned more from him in one day, than in one class... Not only Mayan architecture, but culture, fauna & flora past & present history and Mayan lore... he made sure that in the rain and the limestone structures we were safe in our explorations. He did't just tell us about the individual sites, but how others (Chichen Itza/Tikal) were related and their differences. The three different Mayan architecture styles in each... I can go on & on about the sites & Elio, but if you take this tour, we hope you can get Elio as your Guide. The Mayan chocolate making will get you to look at chocolate in a whole different way. However, we hope to return to Belize and San Ignacio to take the cave tubing tour that we missed thanks to Mother Nature. By the way, the most important thing Elio taught us was how to pronounce Xunantunich... It sounds like Tuna Sandwich :) We would give Elio... 6 stars

We spent a fun, informative and relaxing day with guides Oscar and Carla. The ruins were amazing and the cave tubing was a very special adventure. Our guides took us on a side trip to a sink hole and a smaller cave and it was like a whole other world. I noticed none of the other tour groups were doing this so we really felt like we got the non-rushed, special treatment. Carla cooked us a delicious lunch herself too. It was like spending the day with old friends. Highly recommend.

Thank you for taking time to share with us your feedback. We are so glad you also enjoyed our detour to experience other parts of the cave. Catering to small groups allows us to do things that may not always be possible with large. I am also so happy you enjoyed your meal.

Very knowledgeable and friendly guide! We really enjoyed the Xunantunich tour and historical lesson. Awesome, tasty authentic food for lunch. The cave tubing was slightly less exciting given the water levels were low, but still wonderful views and overall an excellent trip.

This was our first tour in Belize and our guide Elio immediately made us comfortable. Extremely knowledgeable and fun guy for a guaranteed great day. We were the first to arrive at Xunantunich and the place was amazing to experience. The very detailed stories about the history by Elio made everything as good as it could get. Amazing place (and we actually liked it more than Tikal). When we drove off for the cave tubing, we first enjoyed a lovely meal before entering the water. Perfect temperature for cooling off, very refreshing. In the caves, Elio made us smile multiple times and he knew every inch of the caves. Very peaceful and beautiful place. Highly recommended!

Thank you for taking time to write such a great review. We are particularly happy you were the first to make it to Xunantunich. The site is even more magical when you are fortunate enough to have it to yourself for a while. Elio is a wonderful guide and his light banter no doubt help make the day even more memorable.
