FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance is recommended for a trip to be planned?
Excursions (day trip)- *1 week after payment and agreement signed
Expedition (weekend getaways)- *1 to 2 months after payment and agreement signed
Exploration (1 to 2 week vacations)-*2 to 3 months after payment and agreement signed
Of course, the sooner you start planning your trips the more options you will have and secure the trip will be, but no more than 12 months is needed for any trip. If the trip involves a popup FantaPortal then the client should plan around its date of availability since it may not be available all the time. Please sign up on our email list to get notifications of seasonal or limited time FantaPortals.
Are there family-friendly trips?
Yes, FantaPortals can be selected to make sure no above 18 or 21 age limits are involved. Children vary in what they are willing and able to engage with. All recommended destinations have been evaluated by FantaSeek for quality and for being immersive but it is up to the beholder to find joy in that experience for themselves.
Is Oregon the only state FantaSeek offers trip planning in?
Oregon currently has the largest amount of FantaPortals discovered since that is our starting point. We have discovered FantaPortals in many other states as well throughout the years. FantaSeek will soon offer services to all 50 states in the USA. If you would like to aid in speeding up the process in getting our services in your area please consider joining our Royal Patrons family to learn all the ways you can help.
Do you do trip planning for people who travel with their pets?
We don’t want to limit any of our offerings based on pet friendliness. There are pet owners willing to still go to a destination even if they feel it’s not suitable for their pet and instead will find accommodations so they can go without them. Of course, service animals can’t be excluded but owners should still consider that their pet could be exposed to loud sounds and strange environments that could interfere with their pet’s natural perceptions. All destinations will have their phone numbers listed in our itineraries to call if you would like to get more information for your pets.
Are there options to accommodate those who experience disabilities?
Please share with us if you have anyone in your group with a disability so we can give any insights that could be of help ahead of time. We want all our clients to feel like they can do as much as they want and we are willing to look into our recommendations deeper to ensure that.
Can I choose my Fanta Excursion Experiences or do they have to be selected for me?
Fanta Excursions are designed for quick one day trips so no hotel bookings are needed. Since there are no hotel bookings involved the service price is lower due to less time needed for planning. Typically all the planning is done at this service level using our email intake questionnaire. From your answers we create a mystifying trip just like entering a vortex (where you will be surprised where you will end up) in the region you selected. Don’t worry, we will still give you hints on what to wear if you like to dress the part of where you are going. If you are interested in selecting places on your day trip instead of us doing it for you just note it on intake form so we are aware.
Do you offer haunted locations or experiences?
No, we don’t specialize with paranormal spirits or the dark arts in our trip planning. If a destination does reenactments of haunting like what is common during the Halloween season we do consider that an immersive fantasy experience due to the acting involved. We also can include haunted tours where guides do spooky storytelling.
Are there experiences that are sexually themed?
No, we don’t plan sexual fantasy experiences or places that offer full nudity such as nudist gatherings/strip clubs etc.
*This time frame is only do-able if the client is able to reply 2 days after we send out any response emails. If the replies back are longer than 2 days it will delay the trip planning process and we will not be liable for clients not being able to have their trip planned out for their goal date/dates.
