This tour was neat. We learned a lot and it was a nice break from ruins and ocean activities. Our guide was very knowledgable. The tour takes you through the banana plantation and ends with a video of harvesting if you are there on a day when they are not harvesting. We also got a bag of fried banana-YUM! It's... More

I read many reviews about Bunches of Fun, and I thought - yah, how interesting will this be..... it's just bananas! Well - the reviews were correct --- you will never look at bananas the same way again!!! They give an excellent tour through the fields, and have workers there to demonstrate each phase of the growing process. It is... More

We were not expecting it to be as great as it was and all 4 of us were pleasantly surprised. We never expected to learn so much about bananas.I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an easy tour to do for 2 hours.

We had the opportunity to visit Bunches of Fun banana farm while staying in Placencia. It was a fabulous tour that was a full two hours with Luis as our personal guide. We happened to be the only guests at the time so we had a indivialized tour for the two of us. Luis and the field workers were wonderful... More

The tour was really worth the $30.00 BZD per person. The operation is amazing. The staff is very accommodating and knowledgeable. It's worth the side trip. It's a good idea to call ahead for a reservation but we got away with just showing up.

With a name like 'Bunches of Fun Bananas', how could one go wrong? Well, we loved it and have to say it was a blast. The tour was simply wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience too. The guides are smart and the farmers work hard - they know their stuff! It was really cool!!

Today we went to Bunches of Fun Banana Farm and we were thoroughly impressed. The tour is as described on their website but so much more. We were fortunate to be the only two people on the 10:00 am tour but our tour guide, Louise, gave us the full tour - 2+ hours. He described in detail the entire process... More

Quite a drive from the town to visit on very long dirt roads. We had a rental car and went there -- but still it was nothing but a banana farm. Why would someone go there, I'm not sure. Even for a sleepy town like Placencia folks definitely need something to do -- but this is definitely not my cup... More

Hi there, It’s quite unfortunate you visited Belize in December at a time when our tour was closed. On August 4th of 2016, Hurricane Earl hit Belize and caused extensive damage to our fields. As a result, our tour was closed while the farm’s recovery was taking place. We resumed operations on January 4th, 2017, after your visit to our... More
