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).

Our tour personnel, Norman and Phillip, had great personalities and made the tour interesting and informational. I don't think we would have enjoyed driving around Belize City on our own nor would we have learned so much about it. The only down side to the trip was at the rum factory. While we enjoyed trying the different types of rum, we were not allowed into the "museum". Maybe the title of this excursion should be Belize City Tour with a stop at a Rum Store.

The guide was very informative and funny and the city tour was very enjoyable, however I was really looking forward to the rum factory tour, thought I’d see the process though it turns out it was more or less just a stop for you to purchase the rum.

The day we took the tour was the day after Christmas. This was a holiday so there wasn't much going on. The tour guide was great and the rum factory was okay. It was not running the day we were there.
