    1. I am finally back home. Our flight was canceled so we rented a car. I need a little bit more information from you. Your starting point, what type of accommodations you prefer, i.e, tent camping, hotel, etc? What activities you enjoy, like hiking, biking, etc? Do you like tours, or prefer to explore on your own? How many travelers, and are any of them children? Any physical limitations? How many days of travel, and the dates you have in mind.? Any food allergies? Any type of food you prefer or don’t like? We will research all the best places to eat. Anything else you can think of please let me know. Here at Yourvacationgurus, we want you to do more relaxing while we do all the planning.
