Please also see our frequently asked questions below to provide more information.
What sort of accommodation can I expect on a tailor made walking trip?
That is one of the luxuries of having a walking trip tailor made to suit you; you get to dictate the accommodation (within reason of the area). If you want to camp under the stars, this can be organised. Your tent and camping equipment can be delivered ready for your night’s stay. If you are thinking a yurt, let us know. If you had a hotel in mind, tell us, we will organise. How about a home stay visit, you name it.
If I go on a tailor made walking holiday, what distances will I need to walk?
The answer to this is simple; if you want to walk a marathon a day, that can be arranged but equally so days of rest can be incorporated. Tell us how far would you like to walk and we can suggest the most fulfilling regions to suit the distance. We will take into account the terrain and sights en route.
How fast will we have to walk on a tailor made trip?
At your pace. With no other guests on your trip, the only schedule we will need to keep to is yours. This means if we have a 7k hike planned and after 5k you would like a break, we can. Or if after a full day of walking, you still have more energy to burn you are welcome to add extra kilometers in as you wish.
Can I pick the dates of the trip?
Absolutely. We are always happy to work around the dates that suit you, whether it is when you can take time off work or if it is to coordinate with a birthday or anniversary, we will do our best to match your diary. We can also advise if the most suitable dates for a specific destination that you may be considering, or we can advise as to the most cost-effective dates to travel.
Are there any restrictions as to the countries that can be visited on a tailor made walking holiday?
Generally, if you want to visit, we will organise for you. The only restrictions we follow are those provided by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO).
What attractions can I see on a tailor made walking holiday?
Whether you are looking to visit historic sites such as Machu Picchu or walk alongside nature and see a gorilla in the jungle, tell us your dreams and let us entwine them into the perfect itinerary for you.
Are there age restrictions for either the upper or lower age band for a tailor made walking adventure with Imaginative Traveller?
There are no age limits. We can tailor the trip to those who wish to travel with us. The fitness of any member of the party is more important than age to us. And, as you are in control of how far and how difficult the walks are, this can be tailored to the age and ability of those in the party.
How many people do I need for a tailor made walking trip?
There are no restrictions. We are happy to arrange a walking trip for one person upwards.
Are there any food restrictions on a tailor made walking holiday?
There are absolutely no restrictions. We can organise all your meals for you, we can make recommendations of restaurants, we can leave you entirely to your own devices or we can do a mixture, the choice is yours. We tend to encourage people to get an authentic taste of the region that they are visiting whilst respecting any food allergies or preferences that you may have.
Once we have arranged the itinerary and booked is there any flexibility?
In short; yes. Although all transport and accommodation will be booked in advance we will flex as much or as little throughout the trip as you would like. The joy of having a trip built for you, is just that, it is built for you. If you had planned to stop and have afternoon tea at a particular café but as it turns out you are feeling fit and ready to carry on walking and would rather spend more time in the vineyard in the evening, then let’s do that.
Is a tailor made holiday expensive?
The cost varies considerably dependent on so many factors; peak season, occupancy length of trip, to name but a few. However, if you have a particular budget in mind, let us know and we will do our best to meet it.
Do you arrange the flights and the transfers?
The simple answer is; it is entirely up to you. If you would like us to book flights and transfers for you, we can. Alternatively, if you would rather cover this yourself and we simply organise the trip, we can do that too. Let us know what you would prefer.
We hope that this answers some of the questions you may have. However, if you have a question that we have not covered, please call the specialist tailor made team on +44 (0)1728 862219, we’d love to hear from you.
