Full description
On your way to Altun Ha, enjoy a panoramic city tour and see all the points of interest, such as the old colonial-style buildings that still stand in Belize City. See the light house, the Belize sign, the wealthy portions of the city called the Kings Park zone, the school district, the hospital, the central Bank of Belize, and the prime minister’s home. Drive north for about one hour to the Mayan temples. On your way, see the different ecosystems of flora and fauna. Altun Ha was an important Mayan religious and trading center dating back to 200 BC. The site was first excavated in 1963 and researchers believe that it was once home to 10,000 people.  At the site, enjoy a guided tour of the entire ancient city, learn about its history and construction style of the buildings.

Met Fredd at the cruise ship tender dock and was escorted to his air conditioned van. Saw city sights on our way to Altun Ha. Fredd gave us his own insights into Mayan culture and history while explaining the ruins at Altun Ha. We have enjoyed touring many Mayan ruins previously but this tour and guide were the best!

Really enjoyed the tour with Dennis. He was on time for the pickup. Shared information about the area on the drive and gave lits if interesting history about the site. It was a very hot day and he let me set the pace for exploring the area. Also was a solo trip to Belize. Other tour companies wanted me to pay double rate.

My guide was right on time, very friendly & very knowledgeable. He was a safe driver as well. I am very grateful that he took me even though is was Good Friday & everything else in the city was closed.
