Amazing Group Educational Tour
I had the priveledge of travelling with 2 other teachers and 18 student from Chicago, IL to Belize for an 8 day tour of the Toledo District. TIDE tours planned our entire trip and I can't stress how great they were with us the entire time. Delonie was so great in communication with us as we planned our trip to make us feel at ease. Our personal tour guides, George and Martin, went above and beyond teaching us about the Belizian culture, and environment. Each day we were there was filled with a different activity to keep us engaged. Another added bonus is this company partners with other vendors in the communities we visit so the money goes back to the communities and their conservation efforts. I would recommend this organization to anyone planning to take a group trip to Belize.
Tide Tours Knocks It Out Of The Park!
Overall had an amazing experience. From the moment we left the airport we knew we were in good hands. From the mountain drive to the touring of the keys, our guides, George and Martin, were incredibly knowledgeable and truly enriched an already amazing experience. I particularly enjoyed the birding with George and was amazed by Martins story-telling which really made our explorations of the countryside and Mayan ruins come alive. A complete blast, be sure to bring a good camera and comfortable walking shoes, because Tide takes you to best of Southern Belize.
Perfect For Families & Groups!
I took a trip in January 2017 with a co-worker to get to know TIDE, and was thoroughly impressed by the personalized experience of getting to know all of the impactful experiences TIDE provides for local communities as well as visitors. After that, I brought a student group in October 2017, and TIDE helped our group organize a very specific itinerary to meet our gap year goals. We did everything from lionfish research to drum making to kayaking, scuba diving and much more. Their staff is solid and extremely committed. Whether you go down as a family or part of a group, you won't be in better hands than with TIDE! Highly recommend.
