All of the tide tours proved to be amazing experiences. Our guide martin was a fantastic character and was always very eager to provide insight and knowledge about everything Belize. One tour which particularly stood out was chocolate making at ixcacao. It was a surprisingly interesting experience which provided a lesson in Maya culture, cocoa agriculture and processing, as well... More

Although all TIDE Tours were phenomenal, my favorite was the Culture Tour consisting of immersive experiences into each of the 5 diverse Belizean cultures: Creole, Mestizo, Maya, Garifuna, and East Indian. We saw the beautiful Mestizo artwork, discovered traditional East Indian medicines, tasted foods from the Creole and Maya kitchens, baked our own Mayan tortillas, and learned how to play... More

I joined their Blue Creek Cave tour and their Chocolate Discovery tour. Both exceptional. They don't come cheap but it's money well-spent (a part of it goes to support the communities you'll visit). Their Mayan guide, Martin, is outstanding: very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. A few practicalities: BLUE CREEK CAVE You need both good trainers/light walking boots and wet shoes....

Even though the weather didn't start out perfect, Don was an experienced boat driver and gave us a very personal tour. Having grown up in the area, Don gave us the history of the changes in the river. He pointed out turtles, crocodiles, birds and plants as we traveled up the river. Unfortunately, with the weather and shallowness of the... More

During our week in Belize, we were whisked to all corners of the country enjoying such fun and interesting activities as: Spending the night on beautiful Lime Caye off the coast, cave exploring, chocolate making, snorkeling, checking out amazing Mayan ruins and much more. Martin Ack is a wonderful guide and could not have been more accommodating.
