Belize Offers Visitors New Attraction

24th Jun 2005

As tourism arrivals continue to increase in Belize, Belize City now offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy an intimate look at the city’s culture, history, landscape and diversity through intimate horse-drawn carriage tours.  Some of the tour’s must-see sights include visits to the famous swing bridge - the world’s only operating hand-cranked bridge- and St. John’s Cathedral, the oldest Anglican Church in Central America that was built in 1812.

This fresh-air tour also takes participants past the city’s beautifully restored colonial mansions, the House of Culture and the historic Government House, which has hosted such royalty as Queen Elizabeth II.

The tour concludes with shopping downtown with stops at the local chocolate factory and floral studio.

The tours last for approximately one hour but guests have the option of
extending their trip for an additional hour to visit one of the museums
located in the city such as the newly constructed Old Belize and
Cucumber Beach.

The price for a full tour is US$20 and toddlers can ride for free. Tours
must be booked in advanced to reserve a seat.
