2nd time for this excursion. Booked through our ships shore excursion due to length of trip. Cruise ships must wait for all ship excursions to return, not the case if you're on your own. I have seen people left behind running to the dock. 1 hour tour guided bus ride. Stop at restaurant on riverside for refreshment and bathroom break.... More

Did this tour from the cruise ship on a group excursion, could have arranged a private tour for a bit cheaper but we had limited time due to departure. Well worth the trip the 2 hour boat trip on the new river was a little wet due to some rain but didn't dampen our spirits, they don't call it a... More

The guides are amazing!!! I couldnt have picked anyone better. Not only they are so informative but both had such an amazing attitude. I ended up taking the boat ride for 1hr +. I saw crocodile, a spider monkey, lots of birds and a turtle, but what I enjoyed the most was getting to the site in the boat. It... More

This was a fantastic day out - well worth doing and great value. Colin - our driver and guide was very good, as was Simone, our tour guide. It was a great 50 minute fast trip either way up and down the river, and the temples were quite spectacular. Food was traditional and great.

From the start with the quick pickup at the port, to the clean nicely air conditioned vehicle and awesome conversations to the "un-Belize-ably" fun boat ride, incredible Mayan ruins tour, and spectacular meal that was provided this was an experience that I would put on the MUST DO list. This family owned tour was such an amazing experience!!!! Julian was... More

Took this excursion through Princess cruise. We were met at the tender dock by our guide, Gus, and boarded the bus for the drive to the boat landing. Gus explained that the leisurely" river cruise we expected from the description was actually in a fast boat going approx 20 mph up the river. Enjoyed the drive with Gus giving us... More

My wife and I booked this tour through Island Marketing for a NCL cruise ship stop at Belize City. When we arrived at the tour office, just outside the terminal, we were pleasantly surprised to discover there would be only one other person on the tour. Our guide, Richard, took care of us for almost 6 hours - driving us... More

This was a 7 hour excursion that we took from the Norwegian Star. It exceeded my expectations and I'd recommend it for both young and old.
