In some ways, yes, in some ways, no.
We are similar to travel agents in that we help plan your trip from big picture to hourly itinerary. We do lots of research and travel frequently to make sure we are giving you the most informed choices regarding what we recommend.
We are different in that we do not book airfare, hotels, tickets or make any other reservations for you. We are simply here to weed through the often overwhelming choices that people face when trying to plan a trip and put together something personalized, refined and easy to navigate.
While it's hard to make flat rates for such diverse situations, we charge a base rate of $50 per day of travel and increase systematically based on complexity (are you just traveling in big cities, or are you trying to find home stays with locals and find cousins overseas? Are you a party of two or a party of 10?)
For genealogy research we charge $50 per hour with a minimum fee of $250. Five hours minimum research is guaranteed. Like with our travel fees, genealogy fees increase with complexity systematically.
Please contact us for more details and a personalized quote.
Yes! Our service will plan for up to 10 travelers in one party. Again, we do not make any reservations, but will be able to suggest itineraries appropriate for the group size. Please keep in mind this may change the price of service.
Miranda is a thorough and empathetic researcher. She’s an excellent communicator and listened not only to my words, but she was able to understand my genealogy research challenges and my ultimate goals. Her research is systematic, and she looks for documentation rather than relying on hearsay and family folklore. I was completely overwhelmed by the process, but she calmly and methodically pieced together much more information than I had imagined she could, including exact churches where my ancestors were married and baptized! Now I can’t wait to visit and see those places with my own eyes!
