Portugal Itinerary Coaching And Consultation | Julie Dawn Fox in Portugal

Portugal Itinerary Coaching And Consultation

Make your trip to Portugal unforgettable  for all the right reasons,  with my help. Portugal travel itinerary design, coaching and consultation

Like me, you're keen to explore beyond the tourist hot spots and develop a deeper connection with local people and their culture. You want to taste, feel, smell and hear as well as see for yourself what makes Portugal so special.

I'm here to help you find those unique cultural experiences.

Creating your ideal Portugal itinerary requires detailed research and careful planning but we all know how time-consuming and stressful that can be.

The right information often proves elusive or you quickly feel overwhelmed by the myriad of tempting options.

Wouldn't it make planning your trip so much easier if you had a local expert on hand? 

Sandy Bibace (Quick Query)

This is a belated thank you for the great hour we spent together talking about my upcoming trip to Portugal.  It was very helpful, and I've decided to splurge on the food tour in Porto, which I never would have found out about if not for you.   

Denise Calfo (Itinerary coaching)

Thank you SO much for your help - I love travel planning this way - takes a load off us when we have so little time to figure things out. Much appreciated and I will definitely tell others about you. 

Tap into my insider's knowledge of Portugal

Since moving to Portugal in 2007, I've travelled extensively throughout Portugal on my own, with my husband and with friends and family.

I've discovered its most enchanting spots including many you won't find in guidebooks, not even the DK Eyewitness Guides I've contributed to.

I've learned which places are worth your time and effort, and which tourist traps are best avoided. 

I've also learned what pitfalls to watch out for and how you can avoid costly, frustrating or embarrassing mistakes.

Lee Yahnke

Julie checked each of my lodging choices and was honest about her opinion. Based on her suggestions, I changed a couple of bookings and omitted one that might have made our travel too cramped. She also gave me a couple of choices for Fado music which I appreciated. Her blog and ebook are also very good references.

FAQs & Terms and Conditions

What are your fees?

Itinerary coaching includes unlimited email support over a 7-day period and a 30-minute consultation via Skype at any time during the coaching period.

The cost of this independent, personalised research, insider advice and recommendations is €379, payable in advance via PayPal.

Itinerary design fees are on a per day basis and vary according to the size of your group and the level of detail you require. Please contact me for a quotation.

Why should I pay you for Itinerary Coaching?

Are you happy to make your own bookings for the various elements that go into them, such as hotels, flights and tours?

Is it difficult for you to find the time to research or decide which of the myriad of options are best for you?

If yes, my Itinerary Coaching service is designed for you.

You get to keep the fun, freedom and flexibility of piecing together your own itinerary.

Just far more efficiently. 

What you get from me is insider knowledge and experience that cuts your research time by more than half and gives you exactly the information you need to design your ideal trip with confidence.

I’ve spent thousands of hours trawling through the internet, leaflets and books researching trips in Portugal for myself, family and friends and clients. I now know where to look and how and when to search in Portuguese or pick up the phone. 

I'll do the tricky, frustratingly time consuming research based on your preferences and filter out irrelevancies, however enticing they may be. If they don't make sense for your Portugal trip, I won't distract you with them.

You use my findings to build your perfect trip, retaining complete control over what you do, when and who with.

I don't work for commissions when I am coaching you. A travel agent who offers to design custom itineraries for free is unlikely to put much effort into elements of your trip that don't benefit them financially. 

My fee covers my time and Portugal travel expertise and gives me the freedom to choose from an unlimited pool of services when I make recommendations to you.

Depending on your preferences, I can suggest things you can do for free/without a guide. I can tell you ways you can save money or give you the contact details of someone who'll treat you like royalty throughout a tour.

My only criteria are how well these options match your tastes and needs, and their reputation.

The ultimate decision remains with you, as do the bookings. If you need to cancel or make any changes, you can then contact the supplier directly.

What information do I need to supply?

I'll send you a questionnaire that is designed to help me understand what makes you and your travel companions tick. The more you can tell me about your tastes and motivations, the better my advice will be.

The information you provide is between you and me. I will only share relevant details with potential service providers if it is necessary for planning your trip and establishing availability and suitability.

 

Do I have to schedule specific dates for Itinerary Coaching?

Yes. 

Itinerary Coaching involves a series of unlimited email exchanges over 7 days. Because of this, there is a limit to the number of Itinerary Coaching clients I can take on at any given time and we will need to schedule the coaching period for a time that works for both of us.

You can choose from the available dates I give you when you make the payment. If we can't find a suitable period of time, let me know and I'll refund your money.

When selecting dates, it's important to choose a time when you will be able to do some research, too. I will be sending you relevant information but even though I've filtered it for you, it's of no use unless you have the time to read through it.

You'll want to ask me follow up questions that will help you make the best choices for you and your travel companions.

 

What if I can't commit to 7 days in a row for Itinerary Coaching?

No problem. It's important to make sure you've got enough time to read through the information I send you and ask questions to refine your itinerary during the coaching session. 

If your other commitments make it difficult for you to do this in just one week, you can divide the coaching session into 2 parts. For example, you could start with a 4-day session spanning a weekend, finishing up with a 3-day session a couple of weeks later.

This would give you ample time to plough through the options and make a note of questions you want to ask in the next session.

You would need to book both sessions together.

What if I'm not satisfied with your service? Can I get a refund?

Yes. If you are not completely satisfied with the service I have provided, please email me within 30 days to explain the problem. If I am unable to resolve it, I will give you your money back.
