Frequently Asked Questions
With this service, can you make a custom itinerary for me?
No, we're afraid that's actually a huge project that isn't covered in this service but we recommend bringing a document with your current plan for your trip and Jess can answer questions and let you know if it's realistic or not.
Can you help with travel outside of London?
Jess has limited knowledge of things outside of London as there's SO much that she'd need to learn. So it's best to focus mostly on the London part of your trip for this service.
I'm traveling with kids. Can Jess help with that?
Jess's expertise doesn't cover kids travel in-depth but she will help as best she can.
Can I book this and ask questions about moving to London?
Absolutely! In fact we've had many people book this service to ask solely about moving to London. Jess has a ton of knowledge on this.
Can Jess make hotel or Airbnb recommendations?
Jess advises against using Airbnb and similar services in London but if you give her parameters such as budget, areas you like, etc she can provide 2-3 hotel or apart-hotel recommendations.
How long does it take to receive my guide after the call?
You'll receive this guide within four business days after your call.
On the same email we will also include your London Packing Guide and your discount code.
How far in advance should I buy this for my trip?
You'll receive a link to book your call after purchase, and you can select the date that works best for you (if you can't find one please email us and we will try to accommodate your request). Then, after your call we'll have your mini guide ready within three business days. We usually recommend booking your Trip Planning Consultation 1-2 months before your trip if you can.
I found Jess through her YouTube videos while researching my upcoming trip to London with my family. After finding her videos very helpful, I looked at her website and found her virtual consult service. I booked it right away and was able to set it up with her in a few days. I felt so overwhelmed trying to plan this trip with 4 kids and 4 adults for 10 days and really didn't have any more time to research, so I was so excited when I found this.
Jess sent over a list of questions so she would be prepared for our chat. The consult was sooo helpful!!! Jess is very personable and really listened to the details and interests we had. She gave me so much insight into the areas I wasn't sure about and helped me with mapping out the whole trip. Then after our talk she and her team developed a VERY extensive travel guide just for us!!!! It is so perfect, has the details of everything we talked about and more!! Even restaurants she thought we would enjoy. She really took into account our families travel stye. I feel so relieved and prepared for the trip!! This is more than worth the price and the value is amazing. 10/10 do this if you're going to London for the first time or 100th!
My family and I are planning a trip to London for this summer to make up for the trip we couldn't take there 2 years ago due to you-know-what. Even if you've been to London before, like we have, you'll want to book a call with Jess. Her knowledge of things in and around London is impressive, and even if you have an idea of some of the things you want to see, do, experience, eat, drink, etc., Jess can help greatly by either confirming that your choices are good choices or by suggesting alternatives to consider for one reason or another. I really appreciated that Jess and her team are really well-organized and will ask for a bit of info upfront so that she's prepared when it comes time for your call. She was friendly, helpful, generous with her time and was great at listening to and understanding the specifics of what we wanted to get out of our trip, so that she could recommend things such as attractions, restaurants, day trips, etc. that will fit in well with the particulars of what our family likes to do. The cost is beyond reasonable to save the trouble of possibly booking a less-than-great hotel or reservations at a restaurant that maybe isn't the best, or even missing out on a fantastic experience because you didn't know it existed. In the grand scheme of the cost of a trip to London, it's a tiny, insignificant fee that will more than pay for itself in what you don't have to figure out on your own. I'm glad I found Jess's channel and even more glad that I booked the call. Thanks Jess and Dani!
