OK, so you’ve decided that you want to go to Alaska and/or Western Canada. You don’t want a group tour or a cruise, but rather an independent trip tailored to your needs. Now what?
That’s where we come in! We’ll be happy to plan a personalized trip for you, based on your schedule, abilities and desires.
This is how it works:
1. First, let’s chat
We want to know you and understand what you want your trip to look like. We also want to give you an overview of what Alaska travel is all about. The end product of the meeting is a rough sketch of what your trip should look like: dates, route, activities, lodging standard, etc – you get the idea. Meetings are typically held online (Zoom, Whatsapp, Skype, you name it). Of course, if you happen to be in Tel Aviv and you want to drop in for a cup of coffee, just let us know.
2. Then we’ll work on your trip Plan
Time to transform this rough sketch into a detailed trip plan. We’ll need a few days to run some availability checks, and then we’ll email you the trip plan. The trip plan will also include a quote for a ground services package (accommodations, transportation and attractions).
3. Then, handle your bookings
Once the trip plan is confirmed, we’ll run the bookings needed for your trip. We’ve been doing this for a long time, and we have a long list of vendors who we trust and love to work with. Once the bookings are completed and confirmed, we’ll prepare your final trip document. This document is a detailed account of each day, full of tips, suggestions and important technical notes (for example, what to bring along when you go watch bears in the wild. That king of stuff).
Before the actual trip we’ll schedule one more talk to make sure everything is in place – and that’s it, you’re ready to go.
4. And finally, we’ll support
Glaciers and rain forests are beautiful but they also need lots of precipitation to grow; in other words, weather is a major player in Alaska and it can mess up your plans. If you have any question along the way, if you need to change a booking or to add anything along the way, we’re here for you 24/7. We won’t change the weather but we’ll do our best to help you cope 🙂
Basic cost is $100 USD (to be paid at the end of the meeting). This covers the meeting and the preparation of the trip plan.
If you’d like us to handle your trip (bookings, support etc.), the cost will be quoted at the trip plan; the basic $100 cost is counted as part of the total payment.
