PROPOSAL

Tailor Made Travel Programs
We begin by discussing your specific interests - not only where you want to go but why? We want to understand what's really important to you before offering our ideas and advice. We truly want travellers to get the most possible from their overseas experience and believe that begins with practical planning. Our staff travels routinely and extensively so we can provide you with up-to-date assessments and recommendations.

Upon receipt of a non-refundable file fee (that will be applied to the cost of your trip), we will propose a customized travel program tailored to match your budget, schedule and interests. Pre-fabricated travel packages and "cookie cutter" itineraries have no place at Distinctive Journeys. Whatever your destination - be it the great capitals of Europe or somewhere truly off-the-beaten track - DJI will enhance your travels by incorporating interesting local activities and unique cultural experiences, making for a more richly rewarding trip.

BOOKING

The proposed program turns into a booking upon receipt of deposits. DJI will then confirm your accommodation, transportation, tours, activities, etc.

Unique Accommodation
The accommodation we provide is always first rate, be it a country villa, renovated palace, idyllic beach resort, manor house or boutique hotel in the heart of the city. We constantly seek out distinctive properties with particular emphasis placed on service, ambiance, convenience and comfort.

Friendly, Knowledgeable Guides
When booking private touring, we work only with well established, accredited local guides who are fluent in English and adept at making personal connections. Many are longstanding colleagues who have worked with us for years and who are routinely requested by repeat travellers. They take real delight in introducing newcomers to their city or region and offering an insider's view. Many DJI travellers return home feeling as if they have left new friends behind.

FINAL DOCUMENTS

Upon final payment, we will send you a complete travel packet including detailed personalized itineraries, descriptive destination information, sightseeing suggestions, restaurant recommendations, shopping tips, packing check lists, gratuity guidelines, emergency contact sheet (to leave with friends and family), driving directions and maps with highlighted routings (where applicable), and 24-hour local and U.S. emergency numbers.

...But it doesn't end there!
DJI is there until you return home!

Emergency Assistance
Our staff at home and our English-speaking representatives abroad are always ready to assist you should you run into any difficulties or unforeseen situations. You can take comfort in knowing that you are in capable, reliable hands from the beginning to the end of your trip.
