How It Works

Follow these 4 steps to receive your own custom trip itinerary.

  1. Complete a quick travel survey. 
    This will give me an understanding of how you like to travel and the types of activities you enjoy.
  2. Schedule a free trip chat.
    We’ll speak via phone to discuss where you’re headed (or brainstorm possible destinations), sights and activities you want to include, and the services I provide. There is no obligation to purchase at this stage.
  3. Sign the travel planning agreement and pay the service fee.
    Once you’ve chosen Booked by Iman, you will receive a travel planning agreement outlining the services I provide and the cost. After the agreement has been signed and service fee paid, planning will commence.
  4. Receive your custom itinerary. 
    You will receive a digital copy of your custom guidebook. This PDF includes your personalized itinerary, excursion bookings, restaurant recommendations, and a checklist of items to print and pack for your trip.

“This was my first time traveling to Mexico and I had a wonderful vacation. I knew I would have a great time before I boarded my flight because Iman is a consummate professional. Once I committed to going, I received a well planned out itinerary that included all the contacts and cost for each event. Iman also took the time to follow up with me and others participating in this travel by taking and asking many questions to ensure all travelers were on the same page. Iman provided outstanding guidance and suggestions to me so I could stay within my budget and still experience all that Playa del Carmen and surrounding areas had to offer. I highly suggest using Booked by Iman if you are a busy professional and have an interest in traveling but, don’t have enough time to plan accordingly. Deciding to use the services provided by BBI was actually one of the best investment I made in 2018 to help me relax, venture out and enjoy our world. Thank you Iman🙏👍”


“Traveling with a purpose is changing me for the better! Shout out to Iman for her amazing planning and executing of the cousins’ trip!! Book with her for your next group trip or even solo trip. She’s an amazing expert planner for these experiences!!”
