Custom Itineraries

Many people travel successfully around Asia without a guide, but most wish they had at least a little guidance. With a custom itinerary, I do all of the research for you, leaving you free to relax and enjoy your trip, knowing the details are taken care of. Unlike a guidebook which is out-of-date even before it hits the shelf, I can provide current information AND insider knowledge. Whether you’re looking for a one day plan or a two week road map, I will work with you to prepare your ideal vacation. 

An Uncover Japan custom itinerary provides the following:

  • A step-by-step plan of activities organized by area or neighborhood
  • Detailed transportation information on how to get to and from the sights in the itinerary (pictures often included!)
  • Suggestions of local eateries along your sightseeing route that fit both your budget and dietary requirements
  • Suggestions for lodgings that fit both your travel style and your budget
  • Information on any festivals or events that are taking place in your destination at the time of your trip
  • Suggestions of any special tours or cultural events (tea ceremony, flower arranging, cooking courses, etc)

$40 per day (ex: an 8 day itinerary costs $320)


Why Do I Need a Custom Itinerary?

  • don't have the time or desire to do the trip planning myself
  • I'm drowning in the wealth of information available to me
  • I want to make sure I'm getting the most out of my time and money
  • don't want to follow the crowd of guidebook-toting tourists
  • I'm not too comfortable with the local lingo
  • I want a trip that fits my personality and focuses on my interests and travel style


To get started, first get in touch and share some details about yourself and your trip.  We'll schedule an initial phone or Skype consultation and if you decide to move forward, you’ll be asked to complete an itinerary questionnaire.

I’ll then create a draft itinerary, which we will rework and revise until it’s exactly the way you want it. You can contact me at anytime to ask questions and I'll give you updates along the way.

Prior to your departure, you will receive your travel packet which includes:

  • Your detailed step-by-step daily itinerary
  • Relevant city maps and any custom maps created just for your trip
