    Great ride and knowledgeable driver
    The ride was great but our driver, Avram made it so. He gave us so much information from the moment we boarded the van until we arrived at the hotel. There was water ( which was really needed ) and even wifi on board, a little slow but it was not inconvenient. Definitely recommend!

    We couldn't have asked for a better shuttle and driver in Avram!
    We used the Belize Ground Shuttle from the Airport to San Ignacio and then back again to the airport. Avram was our driver and he was excellent! He is a very good driver and also very kind and helpful. I highly reccomend him and the company. Joyce Farris

    Long delay
    I had a shared ride from Belize international airport to San Ignacio. I have arived 2 hours before ride. And the ride had about 2 hours delay, waiting for two passenger to arrive. Not a pleasen experience to be in BZE for few hours. they wait unboundedly for passengers. Two stars for two points, adjusted intitial cost at the booking time for a solo traveler and driver, Jared who was profesional.

    Great transportation option!
    Avram was fantastic, very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. He reached out the day before to confirm pick up location which was very thoughtful. He also gave us instructions for what to do when we arrived at the water taxi station. I highly recommend 😊

    Excellent! Professional all the way. Driver Jared was great
    We booked a transfer from San Ignacio to Hopkins and everything was great. The chat on the website is live with real people who respond quickly and communicate clearly. Our driver Jared arrived 5 minutes early, was very professional and a great driver. There was free wifi and water included. Very comfortable, with air con and lots of leg room. Driver very friendly

    Private shuttle Experience
    My recent experience with Belize Ground Shuttle exceeded all expectations. Upon bein picked up, I was greeted by the friendly and knowledgeable Driver Jared, who was ready to embark on our journey. Jared's expertise in navigating the roads and his passion for Belizean culture made the ride both informative and enjoyable. He shared insights into the local history, pointed out scenic landmarks, and even suggested hidden gems along the way. Despite making seven stops along the route, Jared ensured we arrived in San Ignacio well ahead of schedule. The shuttle itself was clean, comfortable, and equipped with air conditioning, making the trip even more pleasant.Throughout the journey, Jared's conversational nature kept the atmosphere lively and engaging. He was eager to answer any questions I had about The long drive. 10/10 experience.

    Easy Trip
    It was smooth sailing. The van was very comfortable and the driver was prompt. I appreciated that there was extra waters in the van as well as charging outlets. I would take this service again!

    Easy booking, amazing driver!
    Great experience with Belize Ground Shuttle! Avram was the most polite, and helpful person during our entire stay in Belize. He answered every question, gave great recommendations, and was overall just a very nice and genuine guy. He was our driver for multiple trips, and every time he was prompt, and helpful. If you are lucky enough to have Avram driving for you, then you are in good hands. Highly recommend booking with this company, and we hope to be back soon!

    Avram was the BEST!
    Avram was the BEST! Our flight landed earlier than expected but he was already there waiting for us. We felt welcome and safe from the moment we met him. He gave the most delicious restaurant recommendations, one of which we visited twice in our short stay because it was just that good. His wealth of knowledge and sunny disposition put Belize on our “must come back” list. Highly recommend!

    Prompt, accommodating, and Avram is a rockstar!
    Booked a round-trip group shuttle from BZE to San Ignacio with the hotel/water taxi drop off options. Our flight to Belize was cancelled and our trip was delayed by a day, but Belize Ground Shuttle was very flexible and accommodated the change in our plans as if this is a common occurrence (which, with the way the airlines are run these days, I suppose it is!). The party we were sharing the shuttle with landed about an hour after we did, and once our driver, Avram, had them loaded up we were on our way- approximately an hour before the “scheduled” departure time! For the return trip, we were asked by email if we could depart an hour earlier than planned. Happy to see our driver again was Avram, he explained that this way he could get us to the water taxi terminal for an earlier departure to our next destination-San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. We had this shuttle ride to ourselves, and as promised were able to begin the next leg of our vacation a couple of hours early-which was a small win for us considering we had already lost a day of our vacation due to the airlines. Thank you BGS and especially Avram!

    Excellent Shuttle Service
    We booked Belize Ground Shuttle for our round trip between Belize City and San Ignacio based on Trip Advisor reviews! This was a great decision! Belize Ground Shuttles provided us with excellent on-time service for our party of 4! The shuttle was new and very clean. Avram, our driver was friendly. He safely drove us to San Ignacio and back again three days later. The van air conditioning worked well and we were provided with cold water. Highly recommend that you leave the driving on your next trip to Belize Ground Shuttles.

    Professional transportation
    The trip was very comfortable and on time. We felt safe during the trip and our driver Abram was professional and very personable. We also used them for a private return to Belize City and Jovannie gave us a great ride and pointed out many things on the trip. He was also very attentive when he dropped us off at our final destination to make sure we were at the correct location and safe. Thank you both Abram and Jovannie.

    Safe and comfy the entire ride.
    Our driver Avram was such a kind and knowledgeable person! My friend and I were comfortable the whole ride and well-hydrated thanks to Avram having chilled water available for us. The conversation was great too. It made the ride go by quickly.

Our Belize Ground Shuttle experience with our driver, Avram, was excellent. I was in email communication with the office while our flight was delayed in Miami for three hours. Unfortunately, Avram had still be waiting at BZE for us for several hours when we arrived. He is a pro and very friendly - he answered our many questions as we drove to Placencia ("What's a tapir?!"). The shuttle was comfortable and new.

The new shuttle route from BZE to Hopkins/Placencia is via the revamped Coastal Highway, (almost fully repaved with only a few remaining dirt segments). We were a bit disappointed to not go via Belmopan and Hummingbird Highway, per the route description on the shuttle's website. We were looking forward to seeing some of the inland countryside. However, the new route cuts an hour from the drive (now 2 hours), and most shuttles now take this shorter route.

We were very happy to have Avram escort us back to BZE, as we made our way home at the end of our adventures in this enchanting country. We would definitely book with Belize Ground Shuttle for a return trip.

The Belize Ground Shuttle driver was very professional. He arrived at our accommodation 10 min early with a nice large cooled mini bus. He was helpful and provided a cooler with water. The mini bus was a 15 passenger vehicle, excellent condition, comfortable seats, and very clean. We had a very comfortable ride for the 3 hour trip to the airport. Highly recommend this shuttle company.

My experience was seamless and I would absolutely book again! Avram was communicative and punctual, and got us to Placencia fast and safely! The shuttle was spotless, comfortable, air conditioned, and even had a WiFi hotspot. Definitely would recommend.

Alex met us at the airport, with a green sign.....very easy to spot among the other signs. He was friendly, engaging, and informative. We stopped at a gas station where we had an opportunity to buy junk food....we were both hungry and would have preferred to have had something more substantial...like a burger. Overall the journey was pleasant, the van seemed new, comfortable, and had Wifi.

I had a great experience with Belize Ground Shuttle! Avram was my driver both ways and he is awesome. Very friendly and professional. Very easy to locate them at the airport when you exit because of the black shirts and matching green logo on the shirts and the van. Very easy to communicate with dispatch and make changes to pick up points and times over messenger. Would definitely recommend

When we exited the airport, our driver was right there to greet us. He was friendly and professional. The van was clean and the A/C felt great. It was a safe ride of less than 4 hours. We were so impressed with the service, we booked our trip back to the airport through this company. Very affordable rate.

I was fortunate to book a shuttle with Belize Ground Shuttle from Belize City International to Placencia. My driver, Avram, was courteous, professional and gave me great insight to the beautiful country of Belize! I wish I could give them 10 stars! Thanks again Avram and I will be booking again!

I booked this company round trip and they were great! I was the last to arrive for the shuttle to Placencia, and since we were all there about an hour in advance of their stated departure time we were able to get on the road early. That meant an extra hour of vacation in Placencia :). The driver was great, van was nice and clean, and the cold water was a nice touch. The driver was also a licensed tour guide so have us some history and interesting info as we drove.

I had an early flight leaving BZE at the end of the trip, and the company arranged a shuttle for me leaving my hotel in placencia at 5:15am. The driver (Avram) wasn’t just on time, he was early! Again, a nice, clean van with WiFi and cold water. I slept most of the drive, but I’m sure Avram would’ve been just as happy to answer questions and share info had I been awake. He was also very courteous and professional.

All in all the company exceeded my expectations. Both drivers were great, and very safe drivers. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Driver was waiting for us at the airport, ready to go. Shuttle was comfortable and clean. He was very nice, easy to talk to and taught us a ton about Belizean culture. Stopped at a local ice cream place on the way for us. Would recommend to anyone and would use again if I come back to Belize.
