King David is a fantastic tour guide and a truly wonderful person. We had a fabulous 4 days with him and recommend him very very strongly. He knows everything and is an absolute pleasure to be with. As another reviewer stated, he started out as our guide and ended as our friend. We had an absolute blast on our trip and are grateful to have had such a great guide and amazing experience.
After a week of diving and snorkeling, we then met up with King David for an amazing inland trip to Tikal in Guatemala and then back to Belize for caves, zip lining, jungle fun, and great friendship. From the very first email exchange in planning our trip to the moment he dropped us off at the airport, King David was spectacularly well organized and prepared to ensure that we had a great trip with no hassles at a very reasonable price.
Knowing that my wife, two kids, and I had four extra days in Belize after a family trip to a Belize Island, I sent David an email and asked if he could coordinate a trip for us to Tikal in Guatemala, where we would spend the night at the park to enable an evening tour and an early morning tour of the amazing Mayan Ruins (way, way better than a single day trip to Tikal – in our opinion), and then get us back to Belize to do many of the fun things in and around the Cayo District. He quickly did his research and got back to me within a day with a full itinerary, broken down by cost. He was extremely diligent in logistics, communicating, and responding to my many questions leading up to the trip. Once we met up, everything went perfectly. This included organizing transport in Guatemala to and from Tikal, since it is far more complex to bring a Belize vehicle over the border. All connections were perfectly on time. David is fluent in English and Spanish, which helped a LOT in Guatemala!
He is very well connected, which paid off when we made a course correction to our trip. After hearing how amazing ATM cave is and deciding that our 10 year old could do it, we asked if we could change our itinerary to enable us to see this amazing place. David hopped on his phone and worked out a new itinerary immediately. We were extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to see ATM! And, he made sure that we still got to zip line the next day on our way to the airport.
David is a wealth of knowledge and information about all aspects of Belize and he is so friendly he seemed to be one of our traveling companions, but with all the connections and experience to ensure that our limited time was perfectly filled. In addition to discussions on Belize history and economy, he even belted out a respectable rendition of their national anthem.
We can’t state strongly enough how fortunate we feel to have met up with King David for an absolutely amazing trip to Belize.
