Our guide Ignacio, was really amazing with his wealth of knowledge. He must be an Archaeology Professor with the obvious education he has on the Mayan culture and all the other ruins in Belize. I highly recommend this tour when you are in the area!

Loved the ruins. The guide was super informative. I can't wait to go back and learn more and explore it more. Be sure to bring mosquito repellent it is in the jungle and they are very hungry.

Great boat trip with very informative guide/ driver (but no crocodiles!) Lovely trip along the new river and then a super tour around the Mayan city of Lamanai. Bit short of time so didn't get to view the museum - shame!!
