The open air city tour was amazing.
Sail Date: March 2015
The open air city tour was amazing. The guide was awesome and the tour very informative. The seats were not very comfortable. I have also learned that Belize is very homophobic and will not be spending money there in the future.

Open bus tour of Belize - both tourist and non-tourist sections. Service was wonderful, as was our guide Kingsley. Cost us $25 per adult, $10 for our 5-year old, and free for our two-year old.

Went on the Calypso Train Tour with Dillon as our guide. He was wonderful and very knowledgeable providing us with history of Belize and the various landmarks we passed along the way. This was a 1-hour Belize City Tour $39.99 per person with a drink and snack while previewing a short film of the area. Well worth it if you are only looking for an overview of Belize City. Although we only stopped at the Moho Chocolate Factory, we were able to get some nice pix of the area's landmarks: Baron Bliss Lighthouse, Central Bank of Belize (pyramid shaped structure), St. John's Cathedral, the Governor's Mansion and crossing the Famous Swing Bridge. You have to remember that you have to be tendered to shore so allow enough time which this excursion does. We didn't spend much time at the Belize Tourism Village, same ole same ole souvenirs.

Excellent combined tour. Airboat was a lot of fun. Had lunch at the Lizard. 6 beers for $13 was a good buy. Food was good. Meat pies, conch fritters and shrimp sliders. Nice day. Too bad it is tendered.

This was an interesting experience as we took off on a school bus to the Mayan city of Altun Ha which we were able to climb the ruins and learn the fascinating history of the civilizations who lived at these Mayan sites. Our tour guide was funny as she told us we were getting the Belize massage for free on the bus: legs, backside, shoulders which we would appreciate after climbing the ruins. The drive through the city was quick but a nice contrast to the rural and ancient parts of the country. Read Less

FYI...no beaches at Belize City. You must take a boat ride to one of the barrier islands an hour or two away to be on a beach. We took a tour of the city and then went to a restaurant recommended by Royal. We waited at a table for service for 45 minutes, got our menu's and 20 minutes later left after no service. We went back to the ship and had lunch for free (if you understand that you already paid for it). Very disappointed, we see the commercials of how great Belize was, and it is all a lie. Belize is know for their snorkeling. Read Less

Really enjoyed the port of Belize.

Really enjoyed the port of Belize. Took the Calypso Train tour of Belize City. Great way to see the city and learn about the history/culture. As a former British colony, the people speak English easily and are very hospitable.

We booked the city trolley tour. The tour director was very knowledgeable about the city and history of the area. We had two young men (dressed like pirates) that followed the trolley and had mock sword fights. We tours the One Barrel rum distillery and a green house with local plants. The rum distillery was small but had great samples. If you go try the One Barrel Rum and Cream Rum. I should have bought some. The city is divided into the north (wealthy) and south side (poor). Belize has the worst roads I've ever seen. Read Less

We did a country/city tour of Belize City. It was a large van that accommodated 10 passengers. The AC did not even keep the van cool, and it was a very hot day. There was nothing to see in Belize in the country or the city. I would suggest you do not waste your time with this excursion. There may be some beautiful parts of Belize City, unfortunately we did not get to see any of that. We don't scuba, snorkel, and we had been at the beach all day in Roatan, so we didn't need any more sun. So, the options to do something else was non-existent. Costa Maya was a great stop, plenty to do right there by the port. Read Less
