The primary mission of Red Balloon is to provide each client with a customized travel itinerary that allows him to independently discover Southeast France in his own style, at his own pace.* Red Balloon trips are designed to be flexible, always keeping your best interests in perspective.
Exclusive Customized Itinerary
In order to ensure a successful journey, it is absolutely essential to understand the person or group traveling in France. This is why we ask you to first fill out a questionnaire that we will discuss together. Only then can the design of your perfect France holiday begin:
- What is your purpose of travel?
Equipped with the questionnaire's information, the itinerary can be specifically designed for the traveler (s):
- Have French cooking lessons always been a dream?
Each travel plan is carefully designed around your specifications. We have personally evaluated each step of the trip, including hotel, restaurant, and all activities. While standards may vary depending on the budget, the quality is always uncontestable.
Well before your adventure begins, Red Balloon will provide you with all the information necessary to make your Rhône-Alpes France excursion as wonderful and memorable as possible. The most important detail is, of course, the itinerary. You will receive a comprehensive plan that will describe every step of your trip, including pricing.
You will have a list of all hotels, restaurants, transportation and activities, as well as the details for everything, including websites, telephone numbers and any other pertinent information.
This personalized itinerary serves as both an informative and evaluative tool. The wonderful advantage of Red Balloon is that every travel itinerary can be modified. Should you see something that is unappealing to you for whatever reason, Red Balloon will adjust it to your satisfaction. If you feel too many (or too few) activities have been included; if you don't like the look of the hotel from the pictures; if you don't enjoy snow shoeing; all this can be modified. The itinerary is not finished until you are 100% confident about your future France vacation.
In addition to your customized itinerary, you will receive various other material that will help you prepare for your journey. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- vouchers for hotels, restaurants, and rental cars and tickets to all museums, expositions, concerts, etc.
Upon your arrival, we will personally greet you and provide you with any additional information you might need, including emergency numbers, a French cellular phone, a GPS system and coordinates. We will remain in daily contact to make sure all goes according to plan.
Should any unforeseen hiccups occur, Red Balloon will do its best to fix everything as quickly as possible so that you may continue your adventure without further incident.
Your adventure over, we will once again meet with you to ensure that all has been to your satisfaction. We will check to see you have all you need for your return trip and bid you "adieu" until your next custom tour in France.
* Unless otherwise requested, customized itineraries are provided without a guide.
