Some comments by past clients

Mauricio, Linda and I appreciate you checking in with us at Victoria House concerning hurricane Felix. We just wanted to let you know we made it home safely last night and that everyone we interacted with in Belize was extremely helpful and concerned more with our safety than their own. Linda and I really had a wonderful time and are very fond of the Belizean people. Everyone was friendly and warm..an incredible experience.

Sandra, I can't tell you how wonderful our trip to Belize and Guatemala was! I didn't even mind (too much) the rain. Five Sisters Lodge was outstanding, everyone there is so helpful, the guides are knowledgeable, the food was great, and the scenery is just beautiful! We enjoyed Tikal as well, the trip of a lifetime! Everything went smoothly, on schedule, and we feel as though we got more than our money's worth. Be assured that we will recommend your company to all our friends who are going to Central America.

You are more than welcome to include anything I write on your website. I wouldn't mind going into detail about how wonderful our experience was. Thank you for a job well done, thank you very much for all you did for us. We will be back. Bruce

This outfit exceeded all our expectations, as did the providers of the services they booked us with. We had the trip of a lifetime to Belize and Guatemala, knowedgeable guides, great service, wonderful people all the way round. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

All of your arrangements worked out well. We liked both the Five Sisters Lodge and Banyan Bay. We would especially like to thank the staff at Five Sisters for their help and concern following my accident with the horse. The ride was a complete joy until then, and fortunately we were near the end of the ride. My head is fine, the ribs are still sore, but this did not hinder the snorkeling on Ambergris Cay. All-in-all we were very pleased with the trip and your arrangements and would recommend your agency to others. Thanks for your assistance in setting this up. Best regards,
