Tour Details

Your two-hour mini getaway starts with an air-conditioned ride from the pier through the hidden gem that is Belize City. This city, settled in the 1700s, is the largest in Belize. Originally the capital of the former British Honduras, Belize City today is a bustling financial and historical hub with many cultural and colorful layers. It is divided into two parts - the North and the South - by the world's only manually operated swing bridge. Take in the historic sites on this excursion as you learn the rich history and traditions of the Belizean people.

Bring your camera to grab shots of the colorful streets and charming, colonial-era buildings. Saunter through the markets and pick up a souvenir or two, then have your photo taken as you stand by the huge Belize sign.

Visit the Travellers Liquor Heritage Center to learn the country's rum origins and gaze through the show window to watch the rum being distilled. Then it's your turn as you sample a delicious taste of rum punch. Additional tastings of several tantalizing rum flavors including chocolate, coconut, and spiced are available for an additional fee (not included).

Sign up now for a fun, delicious introduction to Belize City.

I booked this excursion for my family of five and we had a great time. We were taken all around the city and seen places we wouldn't have seen if we had explored the city ourselves. Our tour guide was very polite and full of information.The stop at the rum factory was tasty. We purchased some of the rum at a very reasonable price.

We had a pleasant day with our personalized driver escorting us around "his" city. He made it very personal showing us his family business and his homes. It was a relaxed day of fun for us all. Not the usual fast paced bus tour.

Reviewer: Elise S.
When we first ported in Belize, it was not at all what we expected, and we began to second guess our decision to book an excursion from other than the cruise line. We needn't have worried. We were directed to Way To Go Tours and our guides, Percy & Shaquille were excellent. Belize City is very poor, but our guides took what might have been a very depressing two hours & made it interesting & fun. The price for the tour was very reasonable & we enjoyed our trip. The only negative was that the van was old, with no running board, and getting in and out easier. If you were short, overweight, or had bad knees, it was a real chore getting in and out. Also, they had booked the van to its full capacity (14, I believe) without thought of how tight a fit it would be. Two people didn't show up for the tour, but if they had, they really wouldn't have fit.The three adults in our party all agreed that if they'd tried to put anyone else in that van, we would've forfeited the money and not gone.
