I wouldnt do this again nor recommend it. The 45 minutes we actually had at the ruins were amazing, but that was 45 minutes out of 7 hours. Most of the day was spent traveling and felt like A waste of time. The free lunch also DOES NOT come with a free drink. You must pay cash to buy even water..we did not know this ahead of time. I wouldnt do this one again. Not worth it. Read Less

The river had flooded out the crossing, so we could not visit original ruins. Not happy with when and how this was found out, but the back up ruins and tour were still great.

It's hard to give this a fair rating. The Mayan ruins were unbelievably fantastic. However, to get there, we risked life and limb! There doesn't seem to be any traffic laws in Belize. It is acceptable to go 80+ miles per hour on roadways, and to cross double yellow lines right in front of traffic cops and highway patrol vehicles. (No joke...this really happened.) We literally almost took out three school girls and a donkey while heading back and forth from the ruins. One of the members of our group was so distressed with the travel experience she had to take medication. Read Less

Another very interesting Mayan site. You can see Guatemala from the top of the temple. Good exercise. It's a long bus ride, but the tour guide made it very entertaining. We also enjoyed the local lunch that was included.

We were suppose to go on the zipline/ cave tubing but it was cancelled due to weather so we hurried and took a Mayan Ruin excursion. It was a good plan B activity. It rained most of the day near the coast but not where the ruins were on the other side of the mountain range so that part was nice. It was a very long day. I did not like the food that was served for lunch though. Read Less

We could not go to the original temple due to flooding of the bridge leading to it, so the tour company offered an alternate tour at another temple. They gave us the option of canceling but everyone decided to go. The tour was very good and informative and I don't think anyone regretted the decision. Lunch at the restaurant was very good.
