PACZ Tours was started in 1996 as a very small caving company and was taken over by gentleman named Emilio Awe 1998. How small you ask, Emilio was the manager, the guide and the mechanic; essentially meaning it was him and someone else who answered the phone.
Since then, Pacz has grown up a bit. It now employs eight tour guides and has expanded its services beyond strictly caving. Some of these services include tours to: Actun Tunichil Muknal, Barton Creek, Pine Ridge, birding, canoeing, tubing, zip-lining, horseback riding, and jungle tours. They lead tours to almost anywhere you might want to go in the Cayo/San Ignacio area.
Pacz Tours is a license and in good standing with Belize Tourist Board.
In addition to guiding tours all over western Belize, Pacz Tours has also earned the respect of some of the top green people in the world.
