Which Tile first or Paint first

I'm putting down a coil heated floor.
I got my old tile up, got a tile guy lined up.
I got my painter lined up..

I'm doing in stages. I have enough money set for heated coil, Tile, labor and expensives. Was thinking to get tile done then get Painting and Shower doors/glass after I save up.

I will tile the floor and the walls of the shower. Will have 2 tiles above the bath.

Which to do first and why?

Generally you start at the top and work your way down to the floor but any competent painter should hve no problems keeping the paint off of the tile.... plus there won't be any need to touch up the paint behind the tile guy
