Can you picture an amazing gift for your entire family?
Something that would:
Create Memories. The kind that your kids will be talking about for years to come.
Give You Time Together Away From Distractions. Who couldn’t use more of that?
Be Educational. Without being obviously educational.
Not Be More Stuff. Unless you want it! I can help with that too.
Involve Limited Work For You. I do the heavy lifting!
I’m talking about family travel!
A jam-packed adventure or a laidback kind of trip. It’s entirely up to you. Your perfect vacation is unique, just like your family.
Together we will figure out the “where” and “when. Then, based on your family’s preferences, I will build out the “what” to create your best vacation ever.
What Exactly Does Custom Family Travel Include?
Custom Travel Itinerary
No more waking up thinking, “What are we going to do today?” or “How are we going to get there?” Each day is mapped out in a way that works best for your family. Do you love museums? We’ll make sure you get to visit all the best ones at the best times. Would you rather spend time outside? I’ve got your back. Do you like tours or would you rather go it alone? You’ll also know how early to arrive, what you need to get into each location, and what to bring with you. And it will all be arranged in an order so you can get the most out of your time. If you’re lucky I’ll even throw in a map. (My sources say you will be lucky)
Recommendations On Where To Stay
You may like to stay in the middle of it all or like a local in a quiet neighborhood. Maybe you want to stay in a hotel so there is no cooking or cleaning or perhaps you prefer renting an apartment or home. Once I know your preferences and price range, I’ll send you a list of recommendations for you to choose your favorite place to lay your head.
Recommendations On Where To Eat
The worst thing to happen to me on a vacation (or anytime really) is to realize I’m hungry and I have no idea where to eat. That’s when the hangry kicks in and making choices becomes really difficult. Here’s the good news! Your itinerary comes with family-friendly food recommendations included. You better believe it will be based on what you’ve told me your family likes. No fish if you don’t like seafood. Pizza every single meal if that what’s you want! All recommendations will be researched before they are suggested. No one-star reviews for you!
Tips and Local Favorites
This is where it gets really fun. All through your itinerary will be “pro-tips” and suggestions from locals. This may include how to avoid lines and crowds, where to find the best coffee, the must-visit playground, that secret spot to get the best view of the city, or, my all-time favorite, where to find the cleanest restrooms.
Things To Do Before You Go
You will receive a checklist of what you need to do before you leave. This will cover things like booking your room to buying tickets to events that sell out in advance.
You’ve finished lunch and now how do get to your next activity? Just check out that fancy itinerary. From public transportation to driving directions, you tell me how you like to get around, and I’ll put it in there. If there is an app for that, I’ll tell you that too.
All Personalized For You!
This won’t be a cookie cutter itinerary you find when you google “Three Days in X.” This will be extremely detailed, specifically for your family, with love from me to you.
How Does This Work?
1. Tell Me About Your Family.
Together we will figure out your dream destination. We will go over a list of questions designed to determine your likes, dislikes, and everything in between. We will also discuss your budget.
2. I Design Your Custom Itinerary.
After we talk I will research the best options for you and create a detailed plan for your vacation. This takes away any guesswork for you. The itinerary includes activities, recommendations for hotel and food, transportation, and SO MUCH MORE.
3. With Your Feedback, I Finalize Your Family’s Ideal Vacation.
Your custom itinerary includes one round of edits. After you review the draft I will make the changes you request and send over the finalized itinerary.
4. You Make Your Reservations With My Support As Needed.
This is when the “What To Do Before You Go” will really come in handy.
5. Your Family Takes An Amazing Personalized Vacation.
Get ready for your kids to say, “Best trip ever!”
Couldn’t You Just Do This Yourself?
Well sure you could, but let me take this one for you. You have enough to do.
Spend the hours you’d be researching this trip and spend time with your kids, go to the park or a movie, or just drink a glass of wine. Heck, go spend some time by yourself in Target, I won’t judge.
Plus, don’t forget I have experience and mad research skills. You’ll probably get a better vacation with me behind the wheel while you sit in the passenger seat and relax. (Does that analogy make sense? It does in my head 🙂 ) I ask the locals, post in forums, and read “all the things.” I even go old school and check out books from the library. I love this stuff!
