I had a nice experience with the company overall. We accomplished so much in one day. We started with the Altun Ha Mayan Temple tour, then the Rum factory Tour, and concluded with the party plus around Belize city. The Mayan Temple tour was educational and informative, I can't remember our tour guide's name but he provided valuable information about Belize and the Mayan culture….it was great. Since it took a little over an hour, to an hour and a half, to get to the temple from our starting location we needed a bigger vehicle since it was 6 people in my group. The vehicle provided was for six people but since the drive was long, it was a little uncomfortable for us since we were really packed in the vehicle with minimal leg and body room. However, if we were traveling for 15 to 20 minutes the vehicle would have been fine. We also stopped for the rum tour and rum tasting, the person who sold us the trip was not clear that the rum tour would be facilitated by the rum factory staff. That was a little confusing but once everything was resolved, the rum tour and tasting were informative and the rum was amazing. After the rum tour, we then went on the Belize city party bus! Mr. Brown had great energy and motivation to get the party started; Our group was a little shy at first but he was able to get all of us up and dancing within minutes. Mr. Phillip was an awesome driver and was very engaging and friendly. I wish he could have joined us dancing because he was enjoying the music while he focused on the road. Our bartender, Shadine, kept the drinks flowing too! The only thing I wish we would have considered was lunch. Since we had a full day, we forgot about lunch but the way-to-go tours team gave us a few options to try on the route of our party bus tour. I highly recommend this tour company and will use them again the next time I am in Belize City.

We took this tour while we stopped here via our cruise. Our driver was knowledgeable and funny. He did stop to purchase banana bread (homemade) it was delicious. We purchased our own at $2 each. We did stop for rum tasting, the person who sold us the trip was not clear that tasting rum was not included in the tour price. For the tasting is was $1 USD for 2 small samples. I prefer complete transparency when giving me the details of the trip. Our driver stopped right outside the port where 3 women had their own stands selling food. Our group was disappointed, as the food was already cooked and not hot. We then walked back to the port where there are lots of shops.

Whole tour was fun! Wasn’t very informative but lots of fun and lots of rum! We rode around Belize city for two hours and drank rum (they have coconut rum punch and dark rum and coke). The tour operator allowed us to choose the music to play. We made a few stops once by the water to take pics by the Belize sign and another at the rum “factory” which was basically just a rum store with a small little museum back part. We purchased rum and got back on the bus to party some more. We even stopped and the host got us some local food,which wasn’t in the description. Wasn’t what we were expecting at all based on the description of the tour but a pleasant surprise! We had a blast! Well worth the money and would do it again!

This is something you can do right in Belize City. Found the the history of the business interesting and worth a visit. After sampling some of the rum we did purchase a a large bottle or two and some bitters. Afterwards while at shopping at a local grocery store we found we could have purchased the rum there for less than at the factory. All in all a pleasant tour and tasting and worth the taxi ride to visit the Rum Factory.

We went on a cruise and did an excursion at each of the 4 stops. This was the worst by far. Our tour guide was horrible at translating to English. The rum tour was no rum tour at all. You went inside they gave you a TINY cup of what was to be rum punch but was all punch.. they even admitted it.. after your not even a shot you had to pay for other drinks if you wanted them. (Wasn’t bad price but still). That was it.. you could buy things and then it was over. Complete waste of my day.

It was a rainy day in Belize City when we got off the ship. I had booked this tour the week before, and just wanted a city tour and a trip to the Rum factory. If you book this trip, pay close attention to the meeting spot listed on the confirmation. We met Gregory at the appointed spot and we got into his vehicle for a private tour. It was raining for most of our tour but he was very knowledgeable about everything and very passionate about his home. After some touring through town we stopped at the Traveller's Rum factory. We took a brief tour of the historical parts and then went to taste some of the rums. A small cost of $1 US for 2 samples. I found the rums to be very good and a good value. After I purchased a bottle of their 1981 15 year old rum, we headed back into town and went over to the south side. After a brief tour through the south side we were back at the cruise terminal.

Gregory was a great guide and very proud of Belize. I would highly recommend him and this tour.

This was an awesome tour! We were delayed getting off our ship and they placed us on the next tour. Loved touring the city, interesting mix of old and new. Driver stopped by a fruit stand and showed us what fruit they eat. Super awesome! Disappointed in the rum museum, only one flavor of rum available for tasting. Would definitely encourage others to take this tour. You can find them online or right outside the port terminal.

This was by far THE worse! My husband and I literally laugh about. We were arrived at Port ready and for some reason the "tour" was gone although we were early, we were told they would return to get us an they did! The guy then told us that we would get our very own tour guide and "that will be much better" We were introduced to a guy name Snake and he walked us to this 1980s Scooby Do style van that did not even appear to run, LOL! He entered through the passenger side and the a/c blew warm air, my husband figured we'd give it a try, Snake was very knowledgeable about the area so we enjoyed that! Made it to the Rum Factory and was only taken to the store and told by Snake to get a tour of the factory in the back was an additional cost, we did a taste of one kind of rum then left... When we returned Snack said we owed money and when we said we paid and showed the receipt he was ok...thats because that jerk aka Snake was trying to get money from us! will NEVER use Way to Go or recommend it. Carnival cruise should remove them from their list

City tour was...completely unexceptional. No time to stop and actually take a picture at any of the "sights" pointed out by our knowledgeable guide. The colonial buildings are somewhat photogenic, particularly the wooden structures with shutters. The church that I wanted to photograph was not available to visit. The streets are somewhat colorful, but rundown and featureless. The worst: the paving is horrible and those damned sleeping policemen made it impossible to get a "moving picture." Shooting video was almost useless. As far as the Rum Factory, it was...not as cool as the Watling's Factory in Nassau. It was a TOTAL sales con. You pay for one free stinkin' sample of this HORRIBLE rum drink that tasted a lot of fruit juice. I was expecting RUM, not some cheap party punch. I threw it away after my tongue revolted. The "museum" was full of reprints of old photos, not a lot of relics and things to actually SEE. Not like touring an old distillery. There is a glass panel that lets you watch the workers bottling, labeling and checking clipboards. Very interesting. NOT. For me, the best part of the whole experience was buying some fresh roasted cashews from the the guy who hangs outside. DELICIOUS!

Had a very nice tour of Belize city. Cardinal our driver/guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable informative and made the tour entertaining. We saw much of the city, and stopped by the rum factory. And got a free sample and a few samples for a very small fee (2 for $1 us). Cardinal even showed us around a bit an knew about the factories history, and rum making.
