We loved this tour and the crew. A local company selling on quayside. Initially not that interested as just wandering around, no trip booked on ship. But the friendliness of the guys and wanting to spend locally, we went for it paying in quetzals on bank card. The guide was fantastic. He had studied in California and English was excellent....

I've visited livingston 2 times and I've used this travel company twice. I honestly liked it, went to the Belizean cayes, yes it was a bit pricey but they give you everything you'll need, plus you can leave you're bags with them, it's safe

This restaurant was a nice part of our visit to Guatemala. Situated in a middle of Livingston's downtown, it attracts people with local fish dishes, local beer and live local music/performance. One of "must see" places in Livingstone.

We came from a Tour from the same Company. Lunch was decent but nothing special. It was included in our tour. It was a set menu, no choice. Drinks were cheap. Everything looked clean but basic. What we didn't like was that in the middle of Lunch a group of local musicians came and played one very loud song. Afterwards... More

They sold us a tour in the Rio dulce although it was, in fact, a simple trip to join Rio dulce city from Livingstone with many locals inside the boat. So, although the captain of the boat was supposed to stop 1/2h in hot spring and in the bird island and some tine in other spots, there was no stop... More

We did the tour to the seite altares and playa Bianca with Happy Fish as well as a kayaking afternoon. Pretty much because it's the only travel agency in town except the communal lancha to be found at the docks which offers similar trips. In their little monopoly they get to decide the prices which are on the high end... More

Excellent boat trip from our cruise ship at a sensible price with an excellent guide (Freddie) wholeheartedly recommend for anyone wanting to see some of this beautiful area, with a normal level of fitness (some of our trip members were not fit enough to easily get in and out of the boat or walk any distance at all)

Being unable to locate any other excursion operators and unwilling to pay the high price of the cruise ship, we booked with Happy Fish for a $50pp jungle walk and dip in the 2 waterfall pools. We were a group of 4 and they required a group of 9 to make it a go so we recruited some fellow cruisers... More

We had booked and paid in full for the one day Belize snorkelling trip, overnight my boyfriend got very ill and was vomitting all night. We knew we could never do the boat trip like this and I wasn't really expecting that we would get our $140USD back (I even had doubts about getting part of it back) but the... More
