Trip Consultations

Trip Consultations are for dedicated self-planners who feel overwhelmed and want to refine their itinerary with expert knowledge and resources.


This service is like opening a guidebook to the exact right pages for your ideal trip.


With so many fantastic experiences and famous sites to see, planning a trip to Italy can be overwhelming.


Common questions include: Where do I even start? Whose advice should I trust? Is that beautiful video on Instagram to be believed?


Together, we can start from scratch or an existing itinerary you've been working on and build it out daily with the best recommendations and resources.


During our one-hour Zoom meeting, I'll share my screen and open up the Feast Travel database, full of local contacts, including tour guides, drivers, chefs, winemakers who can provide insider access to beautiful destinations, hidden gems, and unique experiences you won't find on your own.


You'll get:

1. Personalized recommendations customized to your interests and preferences

2. My best advice for accommodations, dining, and tours, and the right strategy for getting from place to place

3. Advice and ideas for local experiences, off-the-beaten-path destinations, hidden gems, and unique cultural experiences.

After our meeting, you will receive:


1. A recording of our Zoom meeting so you can review and share it with your travel partners.

2. A digital document full of all the resources we discussed. It's like having an illustrated guidebook made just for you!


My goal is that after our meeting, you will have clarity and feel confident to make all your bookings easily.

If you would like to book a 45 minute follow-up session after our Trip Consultation, you can do so for $150.

"My itinerary was transformed by Danielle and I am so grateful! She helped me with tips on navigating a vegan diet and she told me about so many off the beaten track locations that I never would have stumbled upon just by reading the popular guidebooks. Worth every penny!"

Louis Higgins

"Our trip to Italy was perfect! And there is no way the trip would have been half as awesome if we hadn't worked with Danielle. She gave us great advice saving us hours of planning at home and hours of worrying in Italy."

Natalie Young

"Danielle gave us incredible recommendations for our family’s trip across central and southern Italy. From restaurant recommendations to non-touristy ways to see Italy’s history, she made planning this trip painless!"

Caroline Rausch

"The consultation with Danielle made our trip so special! Her recommendations for local guides helped us explore Roman ruins and our family roots off the beaten path. Exploring my husband’s grandfather’s hometown was the experience of a lifetime for my entire family. I truly appreciate her wealth of knowledge and guidance in finalizing our plans."

Stella Carolan

"When I spoke to Danielle, I was just starting to plan for our trip. She provided great resources that I was able to use to build into a magnificent trip."

Sarah Boozer

"We returned last night from our trip to Italy and I wanted to let you know how thankful we are for all the help you gave us.  Your wealth of knowledge improved the trip so much.  We had a marvelous time and everything went off without a hitch.  We are already dreaming of what region to visit next and will definitely reach out to you for help again."
