We just took a cruise (Carnival) that stopped in Belize City. Our travel agent strongly recommended a tour guide (Randy Jones) through Ras Tours Belize. The cruise port at Belize is a few shops, restaurants, and nothing more. We met our tour guide JUST outside the port. He was standing with among a handful of other guides with our name on a sign.
He walked us through the parking lot to his minivan (clean, air conditioned, modern). Our trip through the country was full of polite and informative conversation. There were four people in our party and we were all firing questions at Randy. He was very knowledgeable, and provided in depth answers to everything we needed to know.
Randy was just as informative about the ruins. We climbed two of the structures at the ruins, learning about the excavation, Mayan city life, and local plant and animal life. Our guide timed our "climbs" around the other tours on the site consisting of 50+ people. This, along with our small group, contributed to a very personal and rewarding experience. The price was comparable to the Carnival shore excursion.
After the climb, Randy gave us time to ourselves to look through the few shops and have some food and a beer on the site. When we were ready to go, he took us back to the cruise port. At no time did we feel rushed during this trip, and enough good things cannot be said about the professionalism and experience of our guide.
