Our Journeys


About Customized Journeys

Customized Journeys, formerly M&G Expeditions, was founded in 2003 in the USA as a Limited Liability Company (LLC). We now have offices in Portland, Oregon, and Genoa, Italy.

Small group sizes – usually only 15 members – and a limited number of trips each year allow Customized Journeys/M&G to concentrate on personal service and a commitment to sustainable tourism in relatively fragile parts of the world.

We offer a number of fixed-date trips each year to some of our favorite spots, but the majority of our business is tailor-made adventures for small groups of friends and family, clubs, and associations. See examples of both kinds of trips on our website, and learn more about our work below.

Dear Friends & Travelers,

The safety and well-being of our clients is our top priority.

We continue to closely monitor the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic and relying on recommendations from the US State Department, CDC, World Health Organization, and other relevant authorities at home and abroad.

For trips that are postponed due by Customized Journeys due to safety concerns or country closures due to Covid-19, we continue to offer these options to clients for trips with departures in 2022:

1. Join your group’s alternate date
If your trip is postponed, you will have the option of joining the future alternate date and will gladly transfer your reservation to this date.

2. Reschedule your trip on a different Customized Journeys departure
If the alternate date for your program does not work for you, we are happy to work with you to find a different date, private trip, or future program that will suit your needs and interests.

3. Receive a Future Travel Credit (FTC)
If your preference is to wait to travel, we will put your reservation on hold and apply your funds toward a future Customized Journeys travel program of your choosing. This FTC is valid for 2 years from your original departure date.

As the situation continues to evolve, we have learned that what makes sense today may be different tomorrow.

Please let us know if you have any questions or need additional information to help with your decision process.

Thank you for your commitment and understanding.

The Customized Journeys team
