Confidently plan and book your dream trip to Paris, London, and/or Rome using personalized advice provided by Cassie – an Itinerary Designer with over a decade of experience traveling Europe and crafting custom travel itineraries.

Planning a trip to Europe can be difficult and logistically complex. Why spend hours researching everything from scratch when you can get unlimited travel advice fully personalized to match your own travel preferences, special interests, and style?

Together, we will review the most important aspects of trip planning including, but not limited to:

We’ll cover the destination’s biggest and best sights in addition to lesser-known places that are worth your consideration. I’ll also share the best time and day to visit a sight so you can avoid crowds and long lines.

Avoid tourist traps and dine only in authentic restaurants. I’ll also share which local foods to try and how and when to make restaurant reservations.

Is Travel Consulting right for you?

Travel Consulting is an ideal solution for travelers who enjoy planning their own trip and have the available time to work on it. If instead, you’d like to have a custom door-to-door itinerary crafted for you, check out my custom itinerary service (it includes booking everything too!)

How Travel Consulting Works

Consultation Call

We’ll start with scheduling your complimentary 20-minute consultation call so that I can hear more about the European vacation you’re dreaming of and how I can help your travel dreams become treasured memories.


Once my services are engaged and the consulting fee paid, I will ask you to complete a Traveler Questionnaire. I’ve carefully developed this questionnaire to include specific questions that will help me provide the best advice based on your preferences and travel style.

Trip Planning Essentials

Our trip planning will be divided into 5 categories: Sights, Tours & Activities, Transportation, Dining, and Accommodations.

You will get copies of the same trip planning templates that I use when crafting itineraries. 

Most of our communication will be done in our shared project management dashboard and/or via email. We will keep all information organized for ease of reference as you build your itinerary.

Unlimited Travel Advice

Throughout the planning process, you’ll get all of your questions answered as well as general trip advice (tipping, mobile data, exchanging money, and more).

Itinerary Review

Send me up to 3 drafts of your itinerary. It is my pleasure to review them and offer any suggestions for improvement. I’m invested in making sure you experience an amazing vacation in Europe!

When it comes to travel planning, the devil really is in the details. Sometimes all it takes is one bad event to give your whole travel experience a bittersweet taste.

For example, have you ever shown up to a museum only to find it closed or missed out on an experience because you didn’t know tickets must be purchased in advance?

With my help – you never will!
