Beautiful ruins, very educational. Hot hot hot there, be sure to hydrate! Getting on and off the ship is a HUGE hassle!!! Make sure you give yourself at least two hours after the ship "docks" until a private excursion. Also, be prepared to wait in a huge line on the way back to get a tender. Read Less

The actual tour was fine, but had an issue with the supervisor and one of his employees. We toured with this company multiple times, and always had good tours. I requested a tour with Steve, who we toured with multiple times. We met Steve at the dock, and he seemed disinterested when I told him we wanted to tour with him. We had 7 people, and ask Steve if he could give us a private tour. He said he no longer did small tours, and now drove a 15 person van. He said we could either join another group of people and he would be our driver, or we'd be able to go with someone else on a private tour. He said it was up to us. We really enjoyed Steve on previous tours, so we decided to go with him and join other people on our tour. We thought everything was fine. When it was time for our cruise, they took us to a large van, and we joined 8 other people. We waited a few minutes, then another driver came in to give us the tour. I made it a point that we wanted to go with Steve, and they just switched drivers on us. That is our last tour with this company. Read Less

The Altun Ha and Wallace River tour was really good. We saw iguanas, howler monkeys and crocodiles while on the river. Lunch was available for an additional fee after the fast boat ride. The tour of Altun Ha was too short, though, as we had to be back on the bus before we could go through the museum or shop for handcrafts. Maybe make the tour a little longer?? Great information, though. Read Less

Great.... very fun tour.... we were off ship quickly and met King David right away. We were the only ones at the ruins for a little while. We were waiting to find out if cave tubes would be open, but they weren't so we had to make last minute changes. David took us on a private tour of Rum factory, chocolate factory and all around Belize. Highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable and fun. Read Less

Short river cruise. Only saw 1 sleeping monkey and some iguanas. Not much to speak of. Ruins were good, but a more informative tour would have been welcomed.
