Consultation Design Service Fee
Our services are provided for a consultation design fee that is based on the length of time of your trip, how many travelers are in your party, and how much lead time you have given us to provide you with optimal service. Working this way frees us to plan a trip that matches your desires and your budget and is not driven by commission. To understand this model, which is a newer practice for the travel industry, please read this article from The New York Times.
After listening to your desires and dreams for your trip to Sicily, we present you with activities, excursions, guides, restaurants, and accommodations only insiders like us know.
How We Work
Our consultation design fee constitutes a full, concierge service featuring personalized planning that will delight you. We often offer you activities, guides, excursions, restaurants, and accommodations only insiders like us know. You will be furnished with comprehensive preparation documents so you know what to expect on your trip along with an electronic custom-designed, personalized, itinerary guidebook with explanations, photos, tips, and all you need to know so you can enjoy a smooth, safe, and phenomenal trip. Importantly, we provide 24-hour support for you while you are in Italy.
Our Planning Process
During an exploration phone call, Allison will talk with you about your interests, wishes, schedule, and budget. She’ll put an initial itinerary sketch and estimated total cost together for you, along with a series of accommodation choices so we have a clearer idea about what you are seeking. Once you supply feedback about the sketch, she and Evelina, her partner in Sicily, will get to work to match your desires with seasonal festivals, meetings with locals, excursions, accommodations, restaurants, and more to create for you the trip of a lifetime.
