Each custom itinerary has a single trip price, which is the sum of the Trip Experience (planning) Fee and all the ingredients (hotels, transfers, guides, activities, and so forth) you choose to include in the trip. You’re essentially buying a custom trip package. The trip price is comprehensive and typically covers the bulk of what you’ll spend while on your trip. That being said, there are some things that are generally not included in your trip price, such as tipping, travel visas, shopping (sorry), some meals (this varies a lot by country, we simply suggest whatever makes the most sense)
Dean charges a Travel Experience Fee to plan a customized, stellar and seamless trip. The Fee is a per trip (not per person) amount and is a function of trip length and complexity. We use a sliding scale to determine the exact amount of the fee and will always let you know what it is before we collect any deposits. Please remember that the actual costs of the trip (i.e. hotels, guides, transfers) are on top of the Trip Experience Fee.
