Take a half-day tour of Belize City for a fascinating mix of old and new. From the mystic Mayan city of Altun Ha to the resurgence of modern Central America, much has happened in Belize City. More than 1,000 years of history has taken place here, and you'll see all the highlights in just a few hours.
This half-day tour focuses on the contrast between the ancient Mayan city of Altun Ha and modern-day Belize City, highlighting 1,000 years of development in this former British Colony. Altun Ha (Maya for "Rock Stone Water") thrived as a trading post to the Maya World during the Post-Classic and Classic periods.
Today, Belize City today is home to about 35% of the country's population and remains the commercial capital of the country though the official capital was moved to Belmopan in the interior in 1971.
Your city tour includes historical sites such as the redbrick St. John's Cathedral and the colonial mansion once occupied by the British Governors. You'll also notice the colonial wooden architecture of many of the houses during the tour.

An excellent tour. We enjoyed it very much. My only complaint, I thought that we were supposed to see some parts of Belize City.

To my great and well appreciated surprise, Rudi Thompson was the tour guide for this trip as well. I was thrilled when he walked through the hotel tours. He is a treasure!!!
