My family and I enjoyed this tour of the city. It is an eye opening experience and educational. The tour guide was knowledgeable, fun and engaging. Make sure to keep an eye out for your surroundings though. The police are everywhere and the city is under construction.
We had never been to Belize before so we were sure just what to expect. This tour was fun and interesting. You start out in a room learning some about Belize. They give you a bottle of water and a snack (awesome Plantain Chips). We drove through some of the everyday neighborhoods, and past million dollar homes, as well as historical and cultural landmarks. Just be aware of your surroundings as on the tour we picked up 2 motorcycle escorts that stayed with us for part of the tour.
You start out this tour in a holding room where they give you an introduction, a bottle of water and a snack (awesome Plantain Chips). The walk out to the train and the back was the worst. The locals are all over the street and get right in your face trying to sell their various goods. Once you get on though, you travel through town safely and are able to see most of the city. This was a nice leisurely excursion that doesn't require any effort.

Great Intro to Belize City!
I had never been to Belize and really didn't know much about the country. This was a wonderful introduction to Belize, Belize City especially. Our tour guide, Terry, was easy to hear and understand, witty, and very knowledgeable about her home. The breeze as we drove through town was a welcome relief on a beautiful sunny day! We drove through some of the everyday neighborhoods, and past million dollar homes, as well as historical and cultural landmarks. You have to be quick with your camera, but it's possible to get some great photos. The people we passed seemed very welcoming, and waved as we went by. I would recommend this tour to anyone who would like an easy, fun introduction to Belize City.
