FAQs about the UK Itinerary Consultation & Review Service

We offer a variety of time options for consultations (1 hour, 1.5 hours and 2 hours) and we would urge you to consider the following when deciding which one to choose!

  • How long are you planning to spend in the UK
  • How prepared your itinerary is (we have had some very detailed itineraries and also some with very little information – the more prepared you are the more you will get out of the session)
  • The level of detail you’d like to discuss
  • How many general questions about UK travel you have

You could also opt to have a 1 hour session initially and then book another to follow up once you have had a chance to reflect on any advice.

We do generally recommend the following:

  • 1 hour for a review of an itinerary up to 7 days
  • 1.5 hours for a review of an itinerary 8 – 14 days
  • 2 hours for a review of an itinerary 14 – 25 days

Feedback from previous itinerary consultation clients

The itinerary consultations are SO WORTH IT! I research everything and consider myself a dedicated planner, and the consultation with Tracy and Doug was invaluable. You will not regret it – it truly is a personalized concierge service.
