How it works:

My services include complete trip planning from start to finish with each day organized or I can simply help clarify and answer individual questions regarding your upcoming trip.

We will start with an initial phone conversation or email correspondence where I can get a general idea of the type of trip you would like to plan. I will need basic information such as:

  • Number of travelers (adults and children)
  • Length of stay
  • Main purpose of trip (Renaissance experience, wine/agricultural tours, relaxation, city tours, biking, etc.)
  • Budget
  • Special needs

Based on our conversation I would be able to work with you to develop a complete itinerary or make a few clarifying recommendations, or anything in between.

Fees:

I charge $25.00 an hour. I require no minimum time for my services and my hourly rate is prorated.
