Few things are as relaxing as unplugging from the daily grind and enjoying an experiential trip abroad. Often, however, planning for such a reprieve can be stress inducing in itself. From coordinating transportation and reserving accommodations, one report from the online statistic, market research, and business intelligence portal Statista revealed 30 percent of female respondents named packing as the biggest stressor before a vacation. Couple this with missed connecting flights and lost baggage, and it’s no surprise Americans feel stressed out about travel.
If traveling abroad intrigues you but the thought of planning it all stirs feelings of anxiety, travel companies like Experi can help put your mind at ease. With its helpful team of travel experts, guest services specialists, and local guides, Experi trips are unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
One of the most challenging parts of preparing for a trip abroad is planning an itinerary. Guidebooks and online research can help point travelers in the right direction, but discovering coveted local hangouts and the best-kept secrets of a place aren’t things you can easily just Google. At Experi, our handcrafted itineraries are the result of years spent exploring the world’s best destinations in search of awe-inspiring experiences and hidden gems. What’s more, we partner with local guides, chefs, winemakers, and other experts to provide our guests with meaningful experiences they won’t find anywhere else.
Having spent years traveling the world in search of the best food and wine experiences, Experi prides itself in offering exclusive, high-quality experiences to its guests. From hands-on cooking classes with local chefs, to private vineyard tours with winemakers, the activities included on Experi itineraries are educational, meaningful, and absolutely unforgettable.
When guests need assistance during their trip, they find comfort in knowing that every Experi itinerary is accompanied by an experienced travel director who is able to answer questions and provide guests with other support as needed. Having the trusted support of a travel director available throughout the duration of a trip is not only helpful, it’s a luxury travelers won’t easily find elsewhere.
Planning an itinerary is a big job, but planning how to get to and from all of the places on your itinerary can sometimes be even more challenging. From mapping your own route to figuring out bus schedules, getting from point A to B isn’t always easy, particularly when navigating in a foreign language. Thankfully, Experi guests never have to worry about transportation. From the moment our guests arrive at the airport, their transportation needs are taken care of. From the airport to their accommodations, to each of the destinations included on their itinerary, our guests’ transportation needs are taken care of from finish to start.
One of the greatest benefits of traveling with Experi is access to high-quality and exclusive accommodations. Our knowledgeable team works with local experts to find the best accommodations for our guests. From chic hotels to luxury winery resorts, Experi guests always enjoy high-quality accommodations, complete with high-end amenities and quality guest services.
