      We are excited for you about your upcoming travel plans to Belize. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to assist you in crafting a memorable journey.

Our commitment to ensuring every aspect of your journey is seamless and unforgettable, requires substantial time, expertise, and effort. The investment fee you've encountered is a testament to this commitment, serving as a demonstration of the dedication we bring to the table.

      The investment fee serves a dual purpose: it solidifies your commitment to working with us and acknowledges the investment of time and expertise that our team devotes to designing your itinerary. When you decide to proceed with booking your itinerary, the investment fee is fully applied to your total trip cost.  Most often we opt to refund the amount, This integration highlights our shared dedication to crafting a remarkable collaboration for a full travel itinerary.

      In the event that you choose not to move forward with us, please understand that the investment fee is also a recognition of the valuable research and effort that our team invests in curating your itinerary.

      Our driver was amazing. He waited for us due to a delay. Our flight was delayed due to an airplane fault. He drove well and progressively, making up some of the time we had lost. The return trip also was superb with a running commentary and local information from the driver along the way. We will recommend Barefoot travel and will certainly use them again

      This travel agent can't seem to book or keep reservations. We arrived in Belize City about 45 minutes early on our flight from the US. After gathering our bags and passing through customs and immigration, our name wasn't on any of the signs for drivers to take us on our 2 hour shuttle to our resort. We called the agent who informed us our ride wouldn't be there for another 2+ hours. So, basically, even though they had our flight information for MONTHS, they couldn't be bothered to check the flight status of our flight. We then booked 4 tickets on our own as we didn't want to wait around for 2 hours followed by a 2+ hour shuttle to our hotel. The other chef's kiss from this agent was an email less than one week before we were to leave for our trip informing us that our flight from Placencia to Belize City had been moved from 9:30am to 7am. Never mind the "confirmation" itinerary PDF that they send us 2 months before the trip listing the 9:30 flight time and flight number. Apparently these Barefoot travel agents don't actually book your flight until it's too late and there aren't enough seats on the flight they promised. Thanks for 4.5 hours of sitting around at the BZE airport! I'd never use this travel agent again. No refunds help at ALL on the problems that were 100% their fault. In this day and age, I'm not sure what the purpose of this agency is. Just use the internet to book it yourself. You'll save yourself trouble and money.

      Megs did a wonderful job of including all our requests of activities for planning the trip, even scheduling in rest days. Megs and her crew were great! They were very responsive and adaptable while we were on the tour. I would book a tour with them again.

      Our shuttle from Belize City to Placencia was great. Our driver Jimmy was a wealth of good information and made the trip super interesting. Would definitely use Barefoot Services again.
