Your vacation time is precious and important to you. But you’re not into cruises or all-inclusive resorts in a tourist bubble. You’re all about traveling and blending in; fitting in with the locals, really experiencing your destination.
But traveling like that takes planning. And lots of it. And you’re busy. Very very busy.
So trust allé to curate your adventure so you can focus on relaxing, enjoying and exploring.
At allé, your personal travel planner has, at minimum, spent considerable time at your destination(s). This travel planner gets to know you and your travel clan and develops, re-develops, and perfects your adventure. What you get is a trip fully catered to you, your preferences and your budget.
The motivation around these parts is the traveler’s satisfaction, not commissions with companies who serve bus-loads of tourists. For this reason, allé charges a flat by-the-travel-day fee to plan your entire trip from where you’ll be sleeping to what you’ll be seeing and eating. And just like all good things in life, we boldly stand by our claim with a good old fashioned money back guarantee.

third your allé travel planner assembles a preliminary plan, including accommodation, where to eat, where to wander, etc.
