If you're finding yourself browsing travel services, then it's safe to assume you're ready to embark on the trip of a lifetime! You could spend weeks struggling through barely-functional websites, attempting to overcome frustrating language barriers and falling victim to "tourist prices". Instead, let The Well Traveled Soul take over your travel plans and deliver a custom designed trip to fully immerse you in your destination and have you falling in love with travel all over again.
A custom-made itinerary by The Well Traveled Soul starts with a "Discovery Consultation." During this 60 minute call, we take the time to get to know you. We learn the way you like to travel and meaningful experiences you're hoping to have in your dream destination. In short - the Discovery Consultation is all about YOU.
Once we get an idea of what you're looking for - whether that is a couples vacation, a group tour, a family trip or a multi-generational travel experience - we'll get to work sifting through the Internet noise (there's A LOT of it) and crafting the vacation of your dreams. My travel network is filled with seasoned professionals with experience planning trips to every corner of the globe. Trust us, we've got this.
As an avid traveler myself, I LOVE what I do. I'm honored to have the opportunity to work with travel enthusiasts from all corners of the globe and to help you plan the vacation of your dreams.
When you plan a trip with The Well Traveled Soul, you gain access to my large network of professionals in the travel and tourism space. While we're hard at work planning your dream vacay behind-the-scenes, you'll be free to focus your time and energy on other things! Did someone say swimsuit shopping trip!
Last but not least, let's not forget about the upgrades! As a Virtuoso-affiliated agency, The Well Traveled Soul can often provide perks and amenties that wouldn't be available to individual travelers. Need a late check-out? No problem! Maybe you could use a special spa credit? And it's hard to say no to complimentary champagne upon check-in!
For my milestone birthday, I wanted an unforgettable vacation experience centered around craft beers. To my delight, Erica recommended the Belgium Beer Festival. We experienced the full weekend at the festival in Brussels and also visited Antwerp, Bruges and Amsterdam. We visited award winning beer bars such as Kulminator, Le Trappiste and Delirium Cafe.
She also made sure we did not miss out on experiencing a specialty Belgium chocolate tour, finding the best moules + pomme frites or waffles! She has become my go-to travel advisor! I know every detail will be covered and she always finds that "something special and unique" during all my travel adventures.
Working with Erica from TWTS to plan our second honeymoon trip to Paris has been easy and stress-free. All of the logistics of planning a trip like this can be completley overwhelming and take countless hours. But, Erica talked to us about what we were looking for, our travel style, budget, etc. and then took it from there.
She has a vast network across the world and was able to provide us an easy-to-use web application to review our options and submit payments. The app ties together all of the many different elements of the trip into one place.
I will literally never plan another trip without Erica's help.
After determining that I'd go to Turks + Caicos for my retirement trip, I reached out to Erica who has traveled to TCI numerous times. I believe I ended up being her first grateful, though unofficial, client as she had yet to officially launch TWTS.
I am most grateful for the many tips she offered, as well as a generous listing of potential hotels, restaurants and tours. Originally we were going to opt for a less cost hotel that would have been a 10-minute walk to beach. I am grateful Erica suggested we stay on beautiful Grace Bay, because we loved having the view every morning and could be in the water in less than 3-minutes.
We truly appreciated all the information Erica was able to provide, it felt like we knew the island before ever arriving. A great retirement trip for this "well traveled soul".
Let's have a chat in person (or virtually!), over coffee (or wine!) and discuss your bucket list of destinations, the experiences you're hoping to have and how you like to travel. This 1-hour Discovery Consultation is completely free-of-charge.
Once you decide on a destination (with my help) and the destination + research fee is paid, the real fun begins! I begin putting together your custom itinerary and send you an initial trip proposal for review. From here, we'll make any necessary changes, tweaks and enhancements and finalize the trip proposal together.
Once your trip proposal is approved and signed-off by you, I work closely with the various vendors and tour operators to confirm and book each piece of your custom itinerary. All elements of your trip will be presented to you via the Travefy App prior to your departure. This will allow you to easily access and view your trip from your mobile device. For those who love a hard-copy (like me!), you will also receive your full itnerary in printed form.
