Today life is busy for everyone – what better way to relax and re-connect with those who matter most to you than to spend time together on a great vacation!
If you are looking to build a tour for your family or a group of friends, The English Experience is here to help with ideas, itineraries, accommodations etc.
If you have a 'Wish List' of places to visit and things you want to do, but don't know how exactly to achieve it, fill out the online form and mail it to us with as much detail as possible.
There is a basic fee of $150 for this service. You may pay by personal check (or call us with your credit card to make the payment). Once we receive your payment you can expect a basic suggested itinerary to be sent to you within 5 – 7 days. If you then wish us to continue working on the itinerary, or to make reservations on your behalf, we charge a rate of $75 per hour. Average number of hours for organizing a detailed itinerary, including full research and reservations is between 10 and 20 hours and will depend on the complexity of the arrangements required.
If you have your 'Wish List' but want someone else to do the driving, we can make all the arrangements for you, reserve accommodations to suit your taste and budget, plan a route based on your particular interests & time available – in short this will be your very own English Experience – all at an affordable price!

UNIQUE HOMESTAYS – first class hosted accommodations around the UK
