“It was crucial to work with a company that could help us find the right accommodations and activities to help us enjoy the sites and cultures of these countries, and it was apparent Evergreen had researched and/or traveled to these locations. We highly recommend Evergreen Escapes and will continue to use them for all travel plans in the future.”
Shoot us an e-mail or give us a ring to schedule a free consultation, which can either be done over the phone or in person in our Seattle office.
This is an opportunity for both of us to ask questions and get to know each other: we'll need an idea of your desired destinations and interests, and it's extremely important to us that you feel confident in our services and trust us to have your best interests in mind when crafting your itinerary.
After our consultation, we mutually decide to move forward!
We'll gather some of your personal details and a non- refundable $500pp deposit that will be applied to your final trip cost - that is, it's not an extra charge. Rather, it is a token of your commitment as we spend many an hour tailoring the first draft of your itinerary to fit your desires, interests, time frame and personal taste.
After we share our first draft with you, we'll take your feedback and continue to tweak the itinerary until it's just right.
Having second thoughts about a particular hotel or activity? We'll find something more suitable. Is a travel day too long? We'll work to rearrange things to be more time- efficient. Whatever the case may be, this is the time where we work together to perfect your very own, tailor-made trip.
In the weeks leading up to your Escape, you will receive your "Escape Pod" - that is, the final product in paper form.
We try to minimize the use of printed materials, preferring to do most of our pre-trip work electronically, however, some things are necessary to have on hand leading up to and during your travels. This includes flight and hotel confirmations, contact phone numbers, and other essential information.
The planning is done and it is now time to truly just sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. You're finally Escaping!
We are always available as a resource to smooth out any unforeseen bumps along the way, or even to just help make last-minute adjustments once you're already on the road (or water, or air, or dirt path . . .) and decide to make a change.
We cannot wait to hear about your Escape!
This is primarily because swapping travel stories and photos is the next best thing to travel itself, but also because we really value the feedback of each and every client we work with. This is not only so that we can continue to grow and improve our Escapes for others, but also so that we know you better for your next Escape!
