The Belize City Tour, Museum, Rum Factory Excursion:
Join us on our Belize City Tour adventure. The historical Belize City excursion showcases the Belize Historical Museum, a taste of World famous Belizean Rum at the Traveler’s Rum Factory, Belize’s St. John’s Cathedral, and more!
The city of Belize is a cultural and sensory feast! Journey through its quaint and colorful Belize streets, and discover the fascinating blend of Mayan, British, Creole, Garifuna, and Latino influences that makeup one of Central America’s most exciting and storied cities.
Visit the Belize Historical Museum, which once housed some of Her Majesty’s most hardened criminals. Initially built in 1857, this beautifully restored building features original brickwork and provides an excellent overview of 300 years of Belizean history and over 3000 years of Mayan legacy.
Exhibits include an impressive array of ancient jade and other Mayan artifacts alongside a preserved prison cell that nods to its more infamous past.
The museum’s carefully curated boutique features locally handcrafted items such as jewelry, soap, and woodcarvings, making excellent souvenirs.
Enjoy an intimate tour of The Traveller’s Belize Rum Factory Heritage Center, which showcases one of Belize’s most locally and internationally beloved products. Belize has a rich history of award-winning rum production with its abundance of sugarcane.
Local legend states that the city itself was built on a foundation of mangrove mulch and rum bottles! View the actual land-to-bottle process that produces these world-renowned rums and sample over a dozen rum and rum-based products.
Authentic rum cocktail recipes will entice you to take the flavors of Belize home with you.
Discover St. John’s Cathedral – the first Protestant Episcopal Church founded in Spanish America. This impressive edifice was constructed by slaves between 1812 and 1826 using bricks from the United Kingdom used as ballast in the hulls of ships.
With its intricate stained glass windows and mahogany pews, it is the oldest surviving building of Belize’s colonial past, and it held the coronations of three Mosquito Indian Kings.
As you venture back to the port, view modern-day Belize in action as you traverse through streets displaying artisan craftsmen and local points of interest, including the historical swing bridge – the oldest in Central America and one of the few manually operated swing bridges in the World still in use.
