My name is Griffith, I'm a tour guide with 12yrs. experience in the Belize District area.
I'm 61yrs. old married for 38 yrs, with 3 children and 5 grandchildren. I was born and raised in Belize City surrounded by Belize's rich culture and history. By profession I was an Electrical Technician. I studied Electrical and Mechanical Engineering in Belize, worked for the local Electricity company for 26 yrs, 10 of them as a supervisor. In 2001 when the Cruise Ship port in Belize City was opened, and ships started to make frequent visits to my country, I took the tour guide training, got my license and started to do tours part time. I soon realised that I love meeting new people and love telling them about my beautiful country. So I gave up electrical work and started guiding full time, which I have enjoyed ever since, and I have been able to share my knowledge and experience with travelers from all around the world.
Belize is a small country on the east coast of Central America, Bordered in the North by Mexico, West and South by Guatemala and the east by the Caribbean Sea. Being a former British Colony, makes us the only English speaking country in Central America. One of my country's greatest assets is the friendliness of its people, which visitors quickly find out shortly after arriving. We are a unique country, with a wide variety of ethnicity, customs and cultures, which sometimes cause Belize to be referred to as a melting pot. My recognized ability to communicate with people from many different countries, backgrounds, cultures and customs, have enabled me to lead tour groups with success. My main objective is to play a more significant role in promoting Belize especially through tourism, by utilizing my vast experience and knowledge to offer travellers a unique and exclusive glimpse of my country, accompanied by me as their personal tour guide in Belize.
Being flexible, having fun and making sure that my travelers get the best experience during their vacation and leave with pleasant memories of my country, is my primary motivation and goal.
I provide all tours in the area of the Belize District and can also customise tours to any other part of the country. The more popular tours are City Tour, City and Country, Maya sites, Baboon Sanctuary, Cave Tubing, Zip Lining and our Belize Zoo. My tours are all informal so no tour is conducted the same way twice. I customise my tours to meet the needs and interest of each individual visitor.
I take this opportunity to personally invite you to visit my country, of which I'm so proud of. Take one of my tours, which are all very interesting and informative. And as we say in Belize, "COME HAVE AN UNBELIZEABLE EXPERIENCE"
A Recent Review of this guide
Griffith was a fantastic guide. He gave us a very thorough tour of the north side of the city. The drive from the city is long but we were entertained and educated the entire way. Griffith is well versed in the history, government and current affairs of Belize. He also informed us about the geography of the regions and local plants and animals. After touring the ruins we had lunch and then toured the south side of the city. A very pleasant day.
