Has anyone taken a Belize Bobbi tour? We're thinking about the 10 day tour. We've never been to Belize and want to see as much as possible since we're thinking of retiring in Belize.

Did you see this exchange on Trip Advisor?
Trip Advisor Belize Bobbi
It certainly raised questions about the legitimacy of her operation. She was very defensive when Katie Valk (a long-time, very knowledgeable member here) asked pertinent and legitimate questions concerning the licensing of her business and her employment of licensed tour guides. If she was operating entirely within the law, why not just say so? If she and her husband are in Belize under the QRP (Qualified Retired Persons) program, the intention is that folks who use it be RETIRED, not working in country. Working in Belize requires that a person go through the Permanent Resident and Work Permit process, which is a longer, more difficult, more expensive task. I'd be very suspicious. If it were me, I'd contact Katie Valk (Belize Trips) or Mary Toy (Destinations Belize).

Both Katie and Mary have been in Belize for years, have well-earned great reputations, are active in their communities' lives, and have always operated scrupulously within the bounds of law and ethics. A much safer bet in my book.
