Step off the plane and forget every care in the world.
I will take care of every detail of your trip for you.
(You will not be charged at this time.)
First, we’ll have a conversation
….where you’ll answer questions about you and your travel companions because this trip is all about you; and I want you to have an unforgettable and seamless experience. I’ll ask about things like your budget, your overall desires for your trip, your general interests like hiking or museums, how ambitious you are for packing in the sights or simply relaxing in a gorgeous setting.
Then I’ll send you the initial itinerary.
Once you’ve paid your planning fee, I’ll build your dream itinerary! After our call, I’ll know exactly what you’re looking for. Then I’ll send you my proposed general itinerary to make sure that we are all on the same page. I hope you will say, “she nailed it!” But if we need to, we will talk about things further or make a few changes until we get it just right. Once this is completed, you’ll have all the bones of the trip.
After that, I’ll begin booking.
Then, once we all agree and you’ve paid your trip deposit (I will send you an invoice for this process) I get into the fine details that really make the trip. I’ll arrange all of your flights, transfers, etc. starting with airport pickup and everything along the way. I’ll begin booking exactly the kind of accommodations you’ve always dreamed of, whether that’s a charming farmhouse, a luxury villa, 5-star resort, chic apartment or a tiny, tucked away bed and breakfast.
Next, we dive into the details
Then I get into my personal favorite part—eating and drinking! Whatever region(s) you visit, one of the greatest delights of travel is the food and beverage experience. Based on the preferences we previously discussed, I will recommend the most notable foods and wines of the region (and any other important comestibles). I’ll point out restaurants, cafes, wineries (including winery tours and tastings) wine bars, cooking classes and specialty food producers. These will often include tours of facilities.
I have wonderful, healthy, no-alcohol options as well. Just ask.
I will also book any additional activities you choose: shopping days, sailing, hiking, basking on the beach in your private cabana, hot air balloon picnics…you name it!
It is important to note that at the luxury rate, I send only accommodations with availability for your dates of travel. So it’s important that we’ve already booked your flights.
Finally, you’ll get a customized checklist.
Before you leave for your trip, I’ll send you your full itinerary along with other essential travel information and resources, potentially including maps to your destinations and reservations, customs info, country info and more.
Right before you leave…
I’ll set up a Skype or other video call to go over all the final details of your trip and to wish you bon voyage! And at the luxury level, you’ll have access to 24/7 support for anything you might need.
Airfare is included at the luxury level
There is a minimal service fee of $25/ticket for any changes to airline tickets.
