Itinerary Planning

Love travel but hate planning? I can help.

Planning a trip to one of the destinations I write about and feel like you might benefit from some tailored advice?
 
Many of my readers have asked for it, and now I’m pleased to be offering a personalised trip planning service to help you organise the perfect travel itinerary
 
Focusing on off-the-beaten-path recommendations and responsible travel tips, this service draws on my own experience to help make your trip hassle-free and enjoyable.
 
To provide you with the best advice possible, I currently only offer an itinerary planning service for the following destinations: Vietnam, Cambodia, and the Trans-Caucasus region (Georgia, Armenia and/or Azerbaijan).
 

The Wayfinder Package

Dreaming of a trip but have no idea where to start? This package is perfect for anyone who wants to pick my brain about a specific destination so they can start building their own travel itinerary.
 
Recommended for experienced and confident travellers who just need some initial guidance.
 
This package includes:.
 
  • 1-hour Skype consultation. Your opportunity to ask me anything. We can go over your time frame, budget and interests to develop a basic structure for your trip. You should come away from this call with all your burning questions answered.
  • Planning email. I will send you links to any specific hotels, tours and transport discussed on the call, plus any other resources I think would be helpful to your itinerary planning.
  • Follow-up questions. As you start to plan out the finer details of your itinerary, I will answer up to 5 follow-up questions via email.

The Explorer Package

My most popular service, this package is more hands-on and therefore suitable for anyone who already has a rough idea for their trip but needs help pinning down the logistics.
 
This is a premium service tailored to your specific interests and travel style.
 
This package includes:
 
  • 1-hour Skype consultation. On this initial call, I will gauge your interests and needs, and get an idea for your travel style. To make the most of this consultation, you should already have narrowed down your trip to a particular country or region. Come prepared to ask me any burning questions.
  • 1 detailed day-by-day itinerary sent via e-mail. Following our call, I will send you a detailed travel itinerary with links to suggested accommodations, activities, restaurants and tour companies, plus detailed transportation instructions for getting from place to place.
  • 30-minute follow up call. After you have reviewed the itinerary, we can discuss any concerns or alterations. I will send an amended itinerary back to you within 72 hours. (Please note: Any major alterations may incur an additional cost.)

Itinerary Review

Already have your itinerary mapped out and just need some expert feedback? I can offer you my honest opinion about your itinerary and help you iron out any sticking points or last-minute logistics.
 
This package includes:

Terms & payment

  • To secure your package, full payment is required in advance of our first call. Payment can be made via PayPal or direct bank deposit.
  • To ensure we have enough time to plan the best itinerary possible, I kindly request you book your package a minimum of 8 weeks before your intended date of travel. Itinerary Assessments can be requested with a shorter lead time (at least 2 weeks before your intended date of travel).
  • Under no circumstances can I book accommodation, transport, tours or activities on your behalf. Instead, I will provide you with links to streamline the booking process.
  • My Itinerary Planning Service is designed to help you get the most out of your trip. Recommendations and advice are based on my knowledge and extensive research of the region. I will do everything I can to make sure you have an enjoyable, safe and successful trip – but I will not be held responsible for any unforeseen changes or circumstances that may affect your trip.
