Most importantly, Upclose Belize is fully functional despite a domain hack of some sort that has their website offline in early 2017. I confess to being quite anxious on behalf of our tour of 16 people, but Kimberlee kept in touch, and our guides were waiting for us well before we left the ship. Our group had specific tour objectives.... More

Ok....so we've done several cruise trips in belize, but we've always left the mainland behind in favor of the cays. Those were enjoyable experiences, but THIS....this was something altogether different. Kayaking the Caves with UpClose Belize is quite probably the single best shore excursion we've taken in 12 cruises. From pickup to dropoff, our experience was personalized, professional, friendly, and... More

Had a great time with Charlie and Elle traveling the Belizean zip lines and then cave tubing. Love working with these guys because they are flexible and do things at your pace all while sharing fun facts about the locale. They took care of lunch for us, all entry fees and transport in a nice air conditioned minivan. All in... More

We booked the private cave kayaking tour with up close Belize, and had an absolutely fantastic time. When booking, I am really looking for an authentic experience. Not something that feels manufactured for the sake of making money from tourists, or overly crowded, etc. This was PERFECT. Herbie was our guide. He is a local who was incredibly knowledgable about... More

In planning our recent trip to Belize, I used UpClose Belize to book a couple of transfers as well as some tours and one of our hotel accommodations. Our driver, Ian, was very friendly and chatty. One time he was late picking us up, but the company called and e-mailed to let us know and it wasn't a problem. Kim... More

We took a private tour with UpCloseBelize to visit the Altun Ha ruins and go cave tubing. That could not have been a better decision for us. Both are rather adventuresome, and being alone with our guide allowed us to go at our "senior" pace rather than try to follow others'. Our guide Joel was both knowledgeable and patient, making...

Mayan site was fascinating Views were breathtaking. Our guide Joel was very knowledgable in addition to being patient when needed to Go Slow. Tubing was lots of fun. Cave experience was unique.

What a day in Belize!!!! My family and I went on a Carnival cruise recently, with Belize being one of our port of calls. Having a 9 year old boy, I do not like large tour groups; so we decided on doing a private tour. Before the cruise, I did my own research, via the internet, to see what Belize... More
