Belize planning help-choosing your guides

We will be going to Belize in January.
We want to go to atm cave one day and zip lining/Cave tubing another. Anyone have a tour guide they recommend ? Thanks

Book the cave tubing/zip to avoid the awful hordes of cruise ship passengers

We did the ATM cave trip with Pacz and were pleased.

also my husband is worried about ATM caves-we are pretty fit and have done other rigorous activities like all day, strenuous water hikes and long hikes in nat'l parks in utah and arizona .
Are there any very narrow passages? he's worried he will be claustrophobic. also he scared he will get hurt cause he read one review saying that the hike would not be allowed in the united states due to how dangerous it is.
I really want to go- to me it is the number one thing on my to do list-hoping for encouraging comments i can read back to him(be honest i just wont read the ones i dont want him to see but also dont want him to kill me once we get there)
thanks again

Fitness-wise I don't think it will be a problem; the guides are helpful with where to put your feet to climb bigger boulders, for example. There are some narrowish places - nothing toooo narrow - but he won't want to miss the awesomeness either, right?

Our ATM photos start with the stream crossing in this set - will give you both an idea of what it's like:

I've always felt the "would not be allowed in the united states due to how dangerous it is" bit was because of the cultural and historical importance of the artifacts, not because of the physical risk to participants.
