We draw upon our industry and destination knowledge, as well as our experience and connections, to create these remarkable adventures.  When you engage our services, you can expect to pay the following professional service fees:

Custom Travel Planning and Consultation

$350 fee for trips that are 10 days or less with 1-6 people traveling on the same itinerary.


15% on all custom itineraries with NET pricing. For maximum transparency, we ask our partners on our custom trips to provide us with wholesale pricing without commission or other markup.  This fee is not charged with hotels or partners that build in commission into pricing.

These fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. 

Trips longer than 10 nights, multi-country or with multiple travelers on different itineraries will be quoted after the Discover Call.
