Had a great time with Vel for almost 7 hours on the tour to Altun Ha and the Belize Combo tour. The site is mystical and our guide was very knowledgeable about the history and uses of this site. The zoo is not to be missed. All around a great day

The trip to Altun Ha was interesting and the guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Unfortunately, this trip was replacing the Xunantunich trip because of the site closing. We were offered Altun Ha, a trip worth $100 for the booked trip of $150 without any possibility to get reimbursed .

The zoo was awesome and they had great food and gifts, felt sorry for the animals there was a lot of standing water. The only thing that was a little concerning is that these two were far apart and i was afraid i was going to be left..from cruise,,but we made it on time,,this needs to be a 2 day thing or something more close to each otehr
