The Natural Choice for Responsible Travel

TIDE Tours, a subsidiary of the Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE), was established in 1999 to promote ecotourism in the Toledo District. Its primary objectives are to provide an alternative and sustainable means of livelihood for area residents, to help reduce poverty in the Toledo District by introducing more profitable economic opportunities, and to generate funding for TIDE’s conservation work.

TIDE Tours is the go to guide for getting out and around the Toledo District. I had an amazing time! I would highly recommend TIDE Tours to anyone looking for an authentic Belize experience that is stress free and fun. I especially respect and appreciate that TIDE Tours supports conservation in Toledo.

We were fortunate enough to discover TIDE Tours through word of mouth and had some great experiences. We also appreciate TIDE Tours dedication to doing things the right way-supporting their community and preserving their wonderful natural environment. Well organized, on time, helpful, reasonable cost, great staff!

I was traveling with my husband and our two sons, ages 5 and 7. Our whole family was profoundly moved by the experiences we had. We were so sad to leave Punta Gorda. Our driver, Ernest was fantastic. We are so grateful to have met such genuine and kind people. Thank you TIDE Tours!
