Managing Director of Waterproof Tours Suriname, Liesbeth Gummels, has next to running a Destination Management Company also experience as a Line producer for various media productions. Because of her experience in the tourism sector, she has much knowledge of different destinations and locations in Suriname. In a country like Suriname it is important to have a vast network of trusted partners, something Liesbeth has definitely built throughout the years. Also, for (tourist) publications about Suriname, she has lots of valuable knowledge and inside information.
Liesbeth and her dynamic team at Waterproof Tours are set to organize logistics like transportation and hotel bookings. But also all formal business operations like facilities for equipment and taking care of everything for customs. Our strength at Waterproof lies in thinking along, informing, organizing and our vast network of trusted partners.
Suriname is a very diverse country in various ways. Her colonial history and melting pot-culture, friendly citizens and breathtaking tropical forest offer an inexhaustible source of inspiration and beautiful setting for stories and adventures.
Beware: Suriname is not a carnet country. But for the formal in- and export of film- and photo equipment, Waterproof has direct contacts with customs in order to formally take care of this.
Feel free to contact us for inspiration, questions or advice.
