Belize City and Rum Factory Tour
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.

This was a great tour of the City of Belize. Cardinal was a great tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable about the City. Answered all the questions everyone had. He was very good at telling us the history of Belize. Told us about the day to day life in Belize. The Rum factory was fun. Would highly recommend this tour.
Both guides good, but van was hot, understand gas expensive. Cardinal was very informative and polite.

Our tour guide, Gregory, was great. Friendly, knowledgeable, and very proud of his country. Learned and saw many interesting things as we drove around the city. Samples at the rum factory, but no production was taking place at the time. Nice change of pace type of tour that didn't take all day, leaving time for other activities.
Our guide was a very good historian and did an excellent job telling us about Belize's history while showing us the city. He was always able to answer our questions easily. Rum factory was also great and everyone there was also very helpful.
