a. Initial Request for Proposal
Around 9-12 months prior to your desired departure date, simply contact one of our Custom Design Tour Planners to start creating your ideal journey - we can also often accommodate on a much shorter time frame, so don’t hesitate to inquire.
Your itinerary will be tailored to your specifications - such as the number of travelers in your party, your desired departure date, length of journey, budget, and of course, destination. Please remember to share any special considerations or restrictions with us during your initial call so we can plan your journey accordingly.
b. Proposal Response
Your Custom Designed Tour Planner will then follow up to give you an estimated cost for your journey and confirm you are ready to move on to the planning stage. This initial discussion will help you determine whether EJIG is best suited to meet your travel needs and expectations.
c. Planning Stage
Your Custom Designed Tour will be designed to include a minimum of four nights in deluxe accommodations, private transportation and the expertise of local guides - an EJIG Tour Director can also be part of your journey, if you wish.
