FAQs

Of course, you have questions!

01

Will I be fed good? What's NOT included?

If you check out my IG, you'll see that I don't mess around when it comes to eating well and traveling comfortably. No one or two-star hotels or sit-down restaurants, only high-end. Street vendors are excluded since, well, they are outside. If you are still hungry, tell me. I won't mind; the food will keep coming--PROMISE!


Not included: Flight, transportation for arrival/departure, shopping, and endless cocktails. 

03

Special Food Needs?

I will do my best to honor your nutritional needs, allergies, and sensitivities, but mistakes will happen, especially when translated into Spanish. Please be super detailed so I can be hyper-aware. Yes, I can easily make swap-outs for gluten-free and vegetarian foods so you can enjoy yourself. Don't drink alcohol? No problem; there are lots of tasty mocktails. Oh, and absolutely no mezcal will be served.

02

Physical Demands & Extra $$

Daily Schedule: Expect to be out 9+ hours daily and walk at least 12,000 steps (7 miles) daily, with lots of breaks and sitting down throughout the day. Most days will begin at ~10am with a hot breakfast and a day overview. Returning to the hotel around ~9:30pm daily.


Need to step away/Break? There are many coffee shops where you can relax and hang out whenever you need a break. I'll share my location so you can Uber back to the group for a few dollars when you are ready to rejoin the action.


Extra $$$: You will spend $0 on food, activities, admission fees, beverages, snacks, public transportation, and treats while with me. If you like shopping or need bottomless drinks, that's on you. ~$200 is more than plenty for street artists/ handmade crafts, knickknacks, souvenirs and nominal tips (if desired).  

04

Attire/Equipment & What if... 

Attire/Equipment: Two pairs of comfortable walking shoes, comfortable clothing to match the weather (around 60 degrees daily - wear layers), small backpack to carry water, person items, charging battery and cables. One set of nice clothes for dinner parties :)

 

What if: Like any travel adventure, things happen, but I'll do my best to make it right. I'll keep you out of harm's way and, by exercising good judgment, we will be fine. If you have more what-ifs... Let's jump on a quick call to discuss this. I want you to be comfortable and enjoy yourself worry-free. Yes, the full schedule will be sent, minus a few surprises.
