All Consultants
Once each Travel Consultant has gathered their information, you will need to meet with your group and collaborate to design an itinerary.  What does each day look like?  How much will it all cost in Canadian dollars?  You will decide together how to organize your itinerary.  Be specific.  Do not leave out any details.  Be prepared to share this with your teacher.  Use your itinerary to create a poster or brochure for your client and possible future clients.  Use pictures and graphs and text and give lots of details.  Be prepared to present this finished product to the class.
