Trufflepig is a trip planning company. Not quite a travel agency nor exactly a tour operator, but very much our own kind of beast. We plan and run customised trips—orchestrating everything from the big picture (hotels, guides, transfers) to the tiny details (restaurant reservations, special activities, you-name-it). We are connector, consultant, editor, and arranger. And a right little animal. Trufflepig trips are built from a basket of ingredients (people, places and things) that we’ve gathered by doing our own research and really getting to know where we go. Our job is to marry our expertise with your request, making sure you end up with a trip that fits. We start with a blank slate, get to know you, and follow the steps of our Trip Planning Process. Once you’re happy with the trip but not before, we pull it all together. Fine-tuning is not only allowed it’s encouraged. Shortly before your trip we send you your Trip Piglet, which is the booklet containing all the details you’ll need, from the exact meeting point for your local guide in the bazaar (and his middle name) to our suggestions for biodynamic wineries in the Macon (if you’re driving through that way, and have expressed interest). And then of course we check in while you’re travelling and adjust things as required or requested. For us, a successful trip is one where you come home and ask us where to go next.
