Belize City Altun Ha Excursion Reviews

Altun Ha is an important ancient Mayan city, and remains a great family activity.
Not quite as stunning as Tulum, but well worth the visit.

Long bus ride.

Long bus ride. Very hot. Take an umbrella for shade. Interesting, but not much in depth. Again, guide very informative about Belize and how people live.

This was our 1st time here. We did a jungle river cruise and Mayan ruin excursion. The cruise portion was educational as the guide gave us a great history of Belize, however it was promoted to see all kinds of wildlife close up. We did see some but all from a distance. The Ruins were interesting but would have liked to spend a little more time and felt the guide could have given more detailed history. Read Less

We did the Olde Belize River & Altun Ha Ruins. The boat was a little too full but we were able to see several animals. Plus at the Ruins we were able to climb one. I do not think there are many ruins people are still able to climb (probably for the best) but I did enjoy being able to this time. We took some great pictures! Read Less

Did a private tour out to the Mayan ruins of Altun Ha because my wife has mobility issues and wouldn’t be able to keep up with a regular tour or stand for long periods. Our guide, Raymond, was aware of her issues when he picked us up right out of the port entrance. He was very knowledgeable to the point that other visitors to Altun Ha came over to listen to his stories about the site that we was telling us about. He was always gracious. We wanted a stop for lunch at a local place, he took us to an outdoor restaurant on Bird Island. It was excellent and fun. Read Less

I booked an excursion to go see the Altun Ha Mayan Ruins and then go ziplining. Our tour guide, Joe, was absolutely amazing. You could really tell he loves his job. He even let us stop on the side of the road at a local wine stop, where we sampled flower, cashew, and blackberry wine. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the ruins and the Mayans in general. At the zipline site, we were greeted with pineapple, bananas, watermelon, chips and salsa, bottled water, and Joe cut open some fresh coconut for us. Ziplining was amazing. I am terrified of heights and this was my first time ziplining. It actually didn't scare me at all. Absolutely amazing day. I HIGHLY recommend. Read Less

We got on the bus and Lavern was our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. She answered all of our questions and kept us entertained on the ride. When we got the the ruins site we were then lead by another tour guide to the actual ruins and we learned a lot about them. We had time to climb two of the ruins and take pictures, also to shop with some local people and get some really nice handmade souvenirs. We enjoyed our time in Belize and are glad we chose to take this excursion. Read Less
