How We Work Together With You

We make an appointment to talk on the phone. Mama Margaret will ask you lots of questions and write extensive notes on all that you tell her. She’ll write a list of all the advice and services you’d like and come up with a fair Italy trip consulting fee. Then she’ll draft your special Italy trip consulting agreement listing those services and due date along with your authorization to charge your VISA or Mastercard with the consulting fee in advance.

Then she’ll create a detailed, day by day itinerary for your whole Italy trip including your cooking and wine tour. In your special Italy trip booklet in a pdf document, as well as your itinerary, she includes suggestions for your hotels, restaurants, wine bars, city tours, special experiences based on your interests, food information for the regions you’ll visit, transport advice you need and more.  You book your hotels and city tours directly with those companies.
