Hands-on tour!

We had a tour of the zoo. We fed the Tapir and held a snake. The tour guide was very informative and would answer questions. The zoo is definitely worth an afternoon!

Ray Vasquez from Big John's Tours really impressed us with his knowledge and knew how to keep us interested. Very pleasant too and very informative - not only about the attractions we visited but also about the flora and fauna around us on the road. He has our highest recommendations.

Allen and his son are incredible tour guides and so knowledgable of the city and ruins! Our groups were both over an hour late due to difficulty getting from our ships to port but they waited and were extremely patient. Allen drove us around the city of Belize before heading to the Mayan ruins. He is extremely knowledgeable about the... More

This is a beautiful site to visit but getting here is almost hell! Inside Belize city, you get to see what the poverty stricken people have to reside. It's ashamed giving the that tourism brings in. Make sure you go to the restroom prior to leaving because the roads are horrendous and full of holes. When you reach the ruins,... More

【ツ】 Being obviously new world-travellers, my wife and i stumbled upon Kent on our first walkabout downtown Belize city. After a brief proposal we were sold on a driven tour of the whole city with a few informative stops (walkabouts) along the way. Through Kent we got to meet the sites and endearing residents of this warm yet intimidating bustling... More

It boggles the mind what they were able to do without modern tools. We picked this ruin to visit from a Princess shore excursion list. The guide was very good, and had lots of knowledge and history facts. There are quite a few ruins in Belize, this one is definitely worth the stop if you have time. Only down side... More

Altun ha and Belize Zoo are in the same direction and are two nice things to do on a shore excursion - easily do-able in the time alloted and both very interesting. Thumbs up to Reggie Tours Belize for very good work, thanks Jarr!

Why do the cruise ships stop here? The ruins are very cool to see and climb on but the day were were there it was a muddy mess. Our guide told us that all the tourism dollars coming from the cruise ships DO NOT go to making any improvements in the roads or anything else. It's all for the government.... More

The Belize people are suffering because their government is padding the coffers with tourism money. I'm am sorry to do this but the word has got to get out. Belize is a dirty dangerous country that is making money hand over fist from the national tourism that is coming from Cruise lines. I was the Carnival Conquest December 2013 and... More
