This fun combo cruise excursion in Belize takes you to one of the best Mayan Ruins - Altun Ha along with a scenic boat ride on the River Wallace. Enjoy nature and learn on this guided tour.

Your friendly guide will be waiting for you right outside your Belize cruise ship terminal. You will get checked in, onboard the transportation and to your first destination, River Wallace. Along the way, your English speaking guide will give you lots of educational and interesting information about the area and your day ahead.

When you get to the Olde Belize River, also known as River Wallace, you will board your riverboat for the scenic route up down the river. You can expect to see a variety of flora and fauna and your guide will point them out. The river itself, its banks and overhangs are home to many jungle species such as crocodile, howler monkeys, iguanas, and many birds.

The river was named after the Scottish pirate, Peter Wallace. Your route will be just a short portion of the 180-mile long river. The guide will also be giving you information about your second destination, the Mayan ruins of Altun Ha. Your river portion stops at the small village of Burrell Boom where you will board your transportation that will take you to Altun Ha.

These Mayan Ruins were once a Mayan ceremonial and commerce center. They cover about 5 square miles in area and contain over 500 structures. This is a unique opportunity as Altun Ha is one of the few ruins left that does allow the guests to climb the structures.

Altun Ha ruins were not discovered until 1963 when they were spotted from the air making them relatively "new" ruins. They date back to 250 BC and have 3 plazas and 13 center structures with the most famous being the pyramid (temple of Masonry) that rises 54ft high.

The famous "Jade Head" was discovered by Professor Pendergast in 1965 who uncovered the carved head that weighs almost 10lbs. It represents the Sun God, Kinich Ahau.

Your transportation will take you back to your Belize cruise terminal afterward.

NOTE: The Belize government may change the rules regarding climbing of the structures at any time.

A variety of boats are used with maximums ranging for 15 to 35 participants.

Cancelled tour left us scrambling

I would not even consider using this tour company again if it were free. After waiting over an hour for our tour to start, we were told that not enough people signed up for the tour, and they were canceling it. Many excuses were given while we waited that hour for the tour. We were led on by Splash Wave while they tried to get more people to sign up. In the end, we wasted over an hour in port, and had to scramble to find something else to do. Extremely dishonest and untrustworthy company!

I highly recommend booking this tour. We had a tour guide that took the 4 of us to Altun Ha. She pointed out sites along the way and told us all about Belize. Once at Altun Ha she took pictures for us and explained the history of the ruins. After we finished there, she took us to meet our boat to tour the river. We also had the boat to ourselves. We saw iguanas, crocodiles, monkeys and manatees. They paid close attention to the time and made sure to deliver us to the port with plenty of time to catch the tender.

We had the best time ever with our guide Kamisha. She was so knowledgeable and fun. She catered our day to our needs and showed us everything at our own pace. The river tour was exceptional. We saw crocodiles, bats, birds, monkeys, iguanas. My kids had an exceptional time and she ended the day with lunch at a local restaurant that was delicious. Thank you Kamisha!

This was an amazing day, full of fun, food, and fellowship. Our tour guide, Garrett, was awesome. He was so knowledgeable about the country. He answered all of our questions from types of trees they have to how many poisonous snakes they have, down to Belize monetary value and how much people earn who work there. And WOW!!! He can drive!! He got us where we were going in a hurry, but you may want to wear your seatbelt. It was hot, but we enjoyed the Ruins. And the Wallace River was great also. We got to se several crocodiles, monkeys, manatees and it was much cooler riding in the boat. We even got to eat some of the local food and it was delicious!

We enjoyed the river ride. We went during the wrong time of year for lots of manatee sighting, but our guide made sure we saw some! We saw tons of iguanas, and he pointed out many other animals along the route. I loved that there were only 6 of us on the boat. Doreen picked us up in our private taxi and took us to the ruins. What a beautiful place! The weather was perfect, and I enjoyed sitting in the sun. My husband had a blast climbing the ruins. We ate lunch on site. Locals cooked us delicious food! After the ruins, Doreen was willing to take us anywhere else we wanted to go. It was just me and my husband. We drove around the city and stopped at various places. This was so much more fun than the giant groups you are in when you book through the ship. Thanks so much Doreen, for the wonderful memories. Hope to see you again when we return!

Did this same tour through Carnival a year before, but this time I booked here and it was a much better experience. Excursion booked through Carnival was overcrowded and impersonal. Initially there was about an hour delay leaving from the meeting point, but we met several great street vendors, a few of us had our hair braided while we waited, had the best Rum and Coke (lots of rum) for only $5, and had fresh and tasty empanadas (only $1) from a bicycle vendor. Bicycle vendor also had other options for sale. On the river cruise it was only our group of 5. Small but newer boat. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable, even tried to retrieve a runaway hat for me. The also allowed us to bring our own drinks on board. Lunch was great, choice of chicken or hamburger with beans and rice, I highly recommend the chicken. Altun Ha Mayan Ruins were impressive but hot, take plenty of refreshments. On the drive home we were in a nice air-conditioned mini van and the staff provided ice cold bottled water and stopped for us and a few local markets to pick up additional refreshments and souvenirs. Garrett was our tour guide, he made for a very memorable day.

My wife and I were expecting a small group tour...boy, were we wrong! It turns out, we were the only two that booked this tour on that date. We feared the tour would be cancelled but it wasn't. So the two of us spent the entire day with the tour guide and did what we wanted on our time. What a great way to spend the day! Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our time on this tour. We had spent time doing water activities in another port and we really wanted to see some Mayan Ruins. This was the perfect way to see them too. Our guides were wonderful and so knowledgeable with a lot of fascinating stories. If you truly appreciate these ancient structures like we do, you have take this tour. You will not be disappointed.

We had a great time...wonderful tour guides. Dad even left his camera at the lunch place before the river tour. didnt notice it till we were back at port. Guide called someone and they had him is camera no problems before we had to get back on ship. Wonderful company. We enjoyed all the sites on the river from birds, iguanas, monkeys, dolphins, etc. The Ruins were great could see the entire layout of the property. The vendors there were nice and not to push. Had some great word carved walking sticks, bowls, and stuff.
