Itinerary Planning

What’s the secret to creating the perfect travel itinerary every time? The short answer is to use mine as a starting point! Equipped with the new rules for responsible tourists, I’ve already done all the travel planning and shared my experiences on the ground here in one place to help you “be invisible” on your next trip, too.

I’m a trip planning addict. Here I’ve shared many of my personal itineraries that have helped millions of tourists like you (yes, seriously!). The key is to have an organised structure to ensure you see everything you wish, while allowing enough flexibility to not feel rushed. Being prepared beforehand will help you enjoy being in the moment when you’re there!

All my efficient travel guides and itineraries cover popular sights and the meanings behind them, combined with hidden gems and locations off the beaten path to help dilute your tourist footprint. Sprinkled throughout you’ll find loads of location-specific travel tips and how to enjoy cultural experiences to help keep local traditions alive.

There’s no need to think about using a travel agent as I’ve included honest reviews for where to stay, things to do, what to eat, costs, how to get around and more from my own tried-and-tested experiences.
