I decided last minute on a Sunday morning that I wanted to go to Hopkins on the coast. Walked around town and everybody was pretty much closed or didn't have any drivers on a Sunday. Sent William an email and he surprisingly responded in 5-10 minutes. His available drivers were booked solid and the others had the day off. He quickly offered to personally drive me there so I didn't have to wait. VERY cool guy running a great business. Showed me some cool spots along the way and even stopped for some great local food. Couldn't recommend him more.

We were so so happy that we went with williams shuttle. Its a bit pricier then some of the other options, but worth every dollar!
He was right on time waiting for us at the airport, after we had been emailing back and fourth, in which he had given us lots of tips around the country.
About 5 minutes into the drive he stopped at a nearby gas station and asked if we wanted to grab some roads beers as their is no open liquor laws their (is that even a question?)
So once back on the roads for a bit he stopped again and bought us some of the most popular hot sauce their!
Then again not to long after he stopped to buy us some fresh pineapple and papaya.
The van ride didnt have much silence because he was happy to answer all of our questions and tell us all about the country and some tips and tricks for while we were there. Once we arrived in San Ignacio, he drove around town and showed us the good places to eat and the banks.

We are so happy we got William, and are still talking about what a great start to our trip it as.
Thanks for everything William.

We used Williams Shuttle service from BZE to San Ignacio and then San Ignacio to Placencia. All of my communication was done via email which they are very responsive, they also use WhatsApp. At the airport, Eder was waiting for us outside and it was straight to the shuttle. Eder was on time, professional, knowledgeable and very friendly. We had wifi during the entire trip and the shuttle all to ourselves. While the shuttles are not brand new, nothing in Belize is and these vehicles are some of the nicest ones in the country. (try taking a taxi in San Ignacio-oof) Unless you are flying, then you take Williams Shuttle service.

dear Jason ,

thank you very much for the insight and the review ....

"straight to the shuttle ?"
yes we dont like to wait too long with you at the airport, unless there is others on the same plane.
we will not combine with other planes and run the risk that the other plane is delayed and you have to wait for them ??? nahhhhh not with us

yes your right , we dont use the latest vans and ours are not the newest most are 2006 and up , and there is some good reasons for it ....

we focus on expanding the fleetwithin our $$$ means ;we rather have more vans for the lower price and are able to keep bookings seperated and comfertable , then one shinybrand new 90 k van for wich you have to wait to fill up with others to make it profitable for the company ...

and on maintaining our vans to the best possible standard , even do there is no mandatory manual vehicle inspection in Belize, we dont need to be told to keep our vans safe ....

some of my drivers have driven the newest vans for employers were the maintenance was "cut short" , break pads and tires not changing ??? realy ???

our ford E350 vans are welknown for their comfort , "living room " on wheels ....spacious and silent cabins ....our drivers take pride in keeping "their" van clean and in shape ...thats worth a lot for mine and their state of mind ...


thank you for the comments and insight and giving me the chance to show you our way of thinking towards offering our service and why maybe we are so much recommended by you and other fellow travelers ...

thank you to all that have written and maybe are writing and reading right now ...


respectfully
William

Very good and enjoyable service. No need to look further.
We did both BZE airport to San Ignacio and San Ignacio to Belize water taxi terminal.
Drivers were safe, on time and knowledgeable. And also communication with William was fast and very good. Van are (as expected) not exactly luxurious but very well maintained and with working AC. With didn't have wifi on both legs as we were told when we reserved but apparently it's not on all the vans (I would clarify that on the provided information). I would definitely recommend Belize Shuttle by William.
Nb: My 2 cents to develop your activity vs. competition:
- A way to book with CC on your web site. I'm aware that price can change with fuel price but that shouldn't be an issue to modify when needed
- Have you also referenced in Trip Advisor under Belize City
- In the future have wifi in all vans.
All the best, you are great !
