how we work

“We’re not your typical travel agency — expect more.”

We’re not your typical travel agency or tour operator. True, we plan trips, but that’s where the similarity ends.

In a nutshell, you can expect a highly personal approach and a tailored service that takes every aspect of your trip into account. You can also rest assured that we care just as much about your vacation as you do!

Our philosophy

Socrates was born out of our own love and passion for extraordinary travel. We know that every family is different and so we take the time to discuss your preferences in detail. Flexibility and resourcefulness are our speciality; you’ll be amazed by how much fun and excitement we can puzzle into your itinerary.

We do all the legwork, arranging everything from the big picture (travel arrangements, accommodation, guides) to the smallest details (restaurant reservations, special activities, you name it).

When it comes to the planning phase, we won’t be content until you’re bubbling over with excitement for the trip ahead. And we won’t rest until you’ve returned home safely, many happy memories richer.

Our process


We meet you and get to know you and your family. You tell us about the kind of things you’d like to do and set a timeframe for your trip. When we have a sense of what appeals to you and excites you, we move on to the next step.


The planning phase. We set to work marrying everything we know about you with everything we know about creating incredible vacations. We work out the logistics of the trip and build the itinerary around this. We consult with you to ensure you’re happy with the planned activities and the proposed pricing.


Now that you’re happy with the minutiae of your itinerary, you confirm the trip and we move on to booking the accommodation and confirming the different activities. You start crossing off the days to your vacation.


Bon voyage! It’s finally time to set off on your trip. While you’re enjoying every moment, we’re busy ensuring that everything runs smoothly for you. We’ll be standing by at all times, from the moment you leave until you’re back on terra firma.

The price

As you may have noticed, flexibility is one of our favourite words. All our trips offer out-of-this-world experiences, but the prices reflect the scope of your ambition. Prices typically range from between €300 and €1,000 per person per day. Sometimes it’s a little less, sometimes it’s a lot more. It all depends on the length of your trip, the kind of accommodation you choose and, of course, the activities planned. We will discuss the pricing and activities with you well in advance to ensure that you feel your trip is worth the price — and then some.
