We have used Nine Eco Cultural Tours for many years in Belize to tour Xunantunich with different groups. Prior to that, we experienced a few other tour guides, and I can say with confidence that Joe Awe is the best tour guide we ever had. He is incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining and easily keeps the interest of all of our... More

We used Nine Eco tours for the inland part of our Belize trip. We had prearranged our transportation with Nine Eco Tours and were picked up at the airport, by Joshua. A very knowledgeable and warm young man. We had an enjoyable ride to San Ignacio with plenty of information given us about Belize. The next morning we met with... More

We used Nine Eco Cultural Tours for our San Ignacio itinerary and trips between Belize City and San Ignacio. I simply can't imagine better service, better people, or a better time. What we did: zip lining, cave tubing, cave canoeing, and Mayan ruins. We did these over 2 days with all travel and every conceivable hassle taken care of by... More

Joe Awe is an amazing tour guide. He is not only extremely educated about Belize history but about life itself as well. I had the best experience laughing and learning about everything! He is an absolute inspiration, when I return to Belize I will connect with him again. It is truly beautiful to have a guide be so comfortable, fun,... More

We had a free day in Belize City before our cruise with Belize Sailing Vacations, and they recommended Joe Awe for a Mayan tour. He picked us up personally and drove us to the site of Xunantunich, stopping for lunch. During the drive he was very engaging; we talked about the culture and politics of Belize & points of interest... More

I can't say enough compliments about Joe & his team (we were with Giselle and Dan, as well as Juan Carlos). Having them as guides made our family trip to Belize not just stress-free, but also very comfortable as they were so easy to talk with - it was like hanging out with friends. We learned SO much about Mayan... More

I had a free day before starting a temporary work program in Belmopan so I decided to give Nine Eco a call. Every aspect of their operation was cordial and professional. They picked me up on time from my where I was staying (Hode's), offered me an ice cold bottle of water and directly took me to the site. It... More

I came across Nine Eco Cultural Tours through an old friend who writes for Lonely Planet in Central America. And she was right on the money. Joe Awe knows so much about Belize and is eager to share it with you. He and the knowledgeable people he works with do a professional job meeting and exceeding expectations. If you have... More

Joe was a little ill when we booked with him, and so we only got to do Xunantunich and Cahal Pech with him. However, if you are lucky enough to book him as your guide (that being the key here, as his time seems limited), Joe is worth every bit of effort to get him. The man has, as quoted... More

I've used Nine Eco Cultural Tours quite a few times over the years. Joe Awe is a wonderful guide, who is well knowledged, and he imparts that knowledge at the local JC too. In the last semester, I've done around 3 tours with Nine, and they were all phenomenal. We did the Tropical Education Center, and did the night tour,... More
