What people are saying about Belize District

This was the 3rd best day of my life! Only followed by the birth of my daughter & my wedding day. Brian was the best guide ever! He took his time with us, never lost his patience and went above the call of duty to ensure we had the best excursions ever. Going to check out other tours when I get back to Belize City before leaving the country. The only complaint I have is that you have not expanded tours to the southern areas. Excellent service!

Great small group tour, absolutely worth experiencing! The organization was also great - they tried to get us to Lamanai ahead of the big groups (which worked). The return trip was adjusted to match the departure of our ship, also great.

The cave tubing was amazing. The Mayan ruins was very educational. Brian our guide knew so much history and a lot of knowledge to share. The zip lining was also fun. Everyone was so nice and we have been blessed to explore Belize.

Our driver and guide Coconut Pete were knowledgeable and great. There was no rush. The speedboat tour of the river wildlife was a plus. These guys are knowledgeable naturalists, historians, and awesome tour guides.

Nelson was amazing and we had a blast. He made the whole experience ever better!
