We believe in long-term relationships. For that to happen, we need to get to know each other. This is the most important part of the whole process. You will understand how we work and we will understand you as a traveler and what suits you best. We are expert listeners - we really hear you. We will ask questions about what you're looking for, what you've like in past trips and what you haven't liked. We may ask you about things you haven't even thought of! We will begin to form your traveler profile. This profile will always be a work in progress. We will add and subtract things through the years as you change, your family/partner/friends change and your likes/dislikes change. As any trusted advisor, we will know you better than anyone else so we can anticipate your needs!
This is when we decide where, when, why and how you're going! Based upon what you're needs are (which we know well after the Explore step), we gather information from our extensive network of specialists and "in the know" experts globally. We listen to your ideas, we give you inspiration and suggestions until we can refine your options into a plan!
Create and Customize
Now we get to work! With all of the information gathered, we build a foundation for your voyage. We discuss accommodation options, sights and activities. We fill in your trip with as much as you want: private museum visits, scavenger hunts, children's birthday party, custom classes and educational experiences, restaurant suggestions and arrangements, theatre tickets, cultural and volunteering opportunities, extreme sports, wellness and life-changing experiences.
Such intensive planning sometimes takes months. Everything has been reserved but Kathryn Theodore Travel stays in contact with you to build the anticipation. We send you tips and tricks, checklists and helpful pieces of local information. We make last-minute changes if necessary, smooth any rough edges and finalize your arrangements.
The moment you've waited for - the voyage! Enjoy and have a wonderful time knowing that we are checking in with you travel suppliers to make sure everything is going smoothly. We work behind the scenes to ensure nothing gets in the way of your memorable experience.
After you've returned and have a chance to settle in, we want to hear everything! We want to know what could have been better. We want to correct those things, edit your traveler profile, and make the next trip even better. We love this part the best - listening to your story! This opportunity to share and tell us about your trip is a critical component to our overall success in being your trusted travel advisor.
