I booked Alphonse tour to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley after a mediocre experience with another company, and I'm so glad I did. He is amazing!! He guided us the entire time in Hol Chan and spotted everything we could ever imagined. We saw tons of fish, sting rays, nurse sharks, and even an eel. He made sure everyone... More

Alphonse went above and beyond in making our snorkeling trip memorable, educational, fun, and safe. I've been on trips with other guides - and none of them provided us with the freedom and safety to be able to really explore the ocean the way that Alphonse did. I learned a ton, and developed a pretty strong desire to get back... More

We just got back from Belize. While we were there, we stayed at The Landings at Tres Cocos, They arranged for us to snorkel with Lil Alphonse snorkeling. This is a top notch group of guides. Safety is their number one goal, and fun. We took two trips out to the reef with them and were not disappointed. Our first... More

This was a great snorkeling trip! We were picked up at our dock, on time (not Island Time). We had quite an age range on our boat from 5 to 55 and everyone had a blast. The little kids were secured to a flotation device and a guide. The adults masks were cleaned (to perfection I might add) and we... More

They picked us up right at our dock and greeted us warmly. We were two of 12 in total on this adventure. Alphonse was very knowledgeable, snorkeled and dived with us. He went out of is way to make this adventure a great one. You can tell he loves what he does and he shares much with you. They had... More

I've been on 2 snorkeling trips with Lil Alphonse since visiting Belize. It has been amazing and he is definitely the best!! My mask has never been clearer and I've snorkeled in Mexico and the Turks. Hol chan and Shark Ray alley was incredible! So many beautiful rays and nurse sharks. Your fun and safety is his number one priority.... More

Alphonse puts the S in to suave and the K in to knowledge! Meeting him is like meeting an old long lost friend. What a day! My husband and I have snorkelled several times. but have still learnt more about snorkelling then all our other trips put together. They teach you the basics which are simple, yet seldom used. It...

We have been going to Ambergris Caye for 7 years now and have been on numerous trips with Lil Alphonse Tours and he is still our # 1 choice. All of the previous reviews are accurate about him taking the time to clear masks and going thru safety instructions. Over the years we have witnessed alot of different levels of... More
