It’s an excellent question and you’ll find out the answer later, ten days before you’re trip. We will send you hints and letters and a packing list and give you our promise that it’s somewhere safe and enjoyable. It’s not North Korea.
Yes. Going Somewhere trips are tailored 100% to the wants, needs, desires, travel style, food and drink preferences of the traveler. We love discovering what makes a person tick and creating a travel experience that meets their platonic ideal.
If you know where you want to go, you can add it your preferences section and we’ll accommodate; however, we’ll plan on sending you other places as well just to make sure you still get a fun surprise.
We take pains to insure you go somewhere that suits your taste and that you haven’t been before. Our quiz and follow up questions are customized to help us get a true sense of what you look for in a trip and what type of traveler you are. In order to further protect you from being sent to a destination you don’t want to go, we recommend adding any places you wouldn’t like to go or have already been to your travel profile. Additionally, we’re available by phone and email if there’s anything you’d like to add or share that will help insure you enjoy where we send you.
When selecting your budget, consider your travel dates (for instance whether it’s a holiday weekend or peak summer) and the whether or not you’d like to travel internationally. We highly recommend leaning toward a higher budget ($800+ on airfare) if you’re imagining an international or multi-destination trip during peak travel months.
Your budget will determine where we send you, your airfare and your nightly accommodations. We are skilled at maximizing a budget and will insure you get the best available for your dollar.
It does not; however, if you would like it to we are happy to accomodate and prepay for activities provided you supply the budget.
You can book a domestic trip with us two weeks before departure and an international trip four weeks before departure. Please note, the earlier you book the trip the better for your budget, as airfare, accommodations and reservations are likely to be more expensive closer to the date. For best pricing we recommend booking your trip 4 months in advance.
Our customer experience will provide you with concierge like service and will be available by phone or email 24/7.
Traveling with a group allows you to split accommodations and save on local travel.
This is our job and well, to be frank with you we have a financial incentive for you to have a good time. Our planning staff has traveled the world extensively and have backgrounds in editorial, creative, art direction and more. We’re aesthetes and impeccable researchers. Each of us are quite talented at discovering excellent places that don’t require you to wait on a line.
If you love Times Square or Jeff Foxworthy jokes, a Going Somewhere trip is not for you. We believe in wandering not sight seeing and being a traveler instead of a tourist. It sounds like a small distinction, but it isn’t.
