It’s pretty easy.

You tell us where you want to go generally (or specifically), for how long, your ideal budget, and a few other deets.

Then, we go to work, scouring the web for the best prices (and best quality), local info, the ‘haps on the hops’ as they say, and everything we would do if we were planning travel for ourselves.
