How Audrey Can Help
My custom itinerary service offers you a vacation without worrying about the details
It takes time and energy to plan a great vacation to Italy, France or Spain. It also takes a great deal of knowledge. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the information you find when researching all the options you have for your holiday. Together with my in-country associates we create a customized itinerary for your trip to Europe that gives you the chance to focus on just those things that are most enjoyable to you. We help you plan your trip in a way that maximizes your time and makes sure you see the not-to-be-missed and the unique experiences, ensuring you get the most from your European vacation.
With this service you will receive a customized itinerary that will include:
Consultation on pace, destinations, airports, what to do and see, recommendations for your free time
Exceptional lodging based on your likes and budget, whether it's a villa, a castle, a boutique family-run hotel
Activities such as privately guided tours with our local expert guides, cooking lessons, winery visits and tastings, truffle hunting, castle tours, museum visits with pre-reserved entrance times (no waiting in line to see Michelangelo's David!)
Provide detailed information on transportation and logistics during your trip
Recommendations for wonderful little out-of-the-way family-run restaurants and fine dining that is worth the splurge
Recommendations such as lists of foods you should try, insider tips, unique places you would not find on your own, and more

How Audrey's Custom Itinerary Service Works
We get to know one another on an initial Zoom video call for your chosen day and time on my online scheduler. Once I receive the consultation fee to start working with me, I will ask you to fill out a questionnaire so I can learn more about you and your travel style.
We meet over Zoom after I receive your questionnaire. That call is when I start laying the groundwork of your unique travel itinerary, personalized just for you. Some things we will chat about, are you interests and the interests of your traveling companions, your ages and energy levels. Have you traveled to Europe before? If so, which countries did you visit? What would make your trip perfect, and what do you envision as your ideal day while on vacation?
Within 2 weeks from our zoom call, you will receive a recommended overall itinerary. It will include information about some of the specifics we discussed on the call, incorporating the things you wish for, plus some extras I think you’ll love. You might say, “Yes, let’s go for it!” or you might want to discuss a few things, tweak some items, or compare different options. At the end of this phase, you’ll know what the highlights of your trip to Italy, France or Spain are, you’ll know how long you’ll stay in each place, and you’ll know how to travel from point A to point B.
Once the itinerary is agreed upon, and you have paid a 30% deposit from the total quote of your customized itinerary package, I start booking your accommodations, ground transportation, and reserve your selected activities. I will be available to answer your questions during the entire process.
You will be given a detailed step-by-step daily itinerary that is unique to you in our Axus travel app so you can download the details to your phone and/or print it out before your trip. On this itinerary you will have all the contact details and information pertaining to your hotels, tours, guides, drivers and more. You will also receive via email any tickets for transportation (if included), sites, and museums booked. I will also send you a country specific guidebook (in PDF format) chock full of travel tips, helful tips, cultural and practical information to make your trip more enjoyable. Before you depart, we will go over everything together and then all you have to do is sit back, and enjoy your fabulous travels!
