Is it advisable to pay a "specialist" to book tours?

Jump to last reply

A friend recently recommended a company to me which she used when she booked her Italy vacation a few years ago. For about $300 to $400 per person the woman who runs this company handles most aspects of the trip, most notably arranging tours of the Sistine Chapel, a papal audience (seems first come, first serve so I'm not quite sure what she did) some cooking classes, restaurant recommendations, boat tours of Amalfi etc. I've booked all the air and hotels myself, am fairly savvy with the computer, and have access to excellent local restaurant info, so I'm not sure this person would offer me things that I could not find on my own through boards such as these. Has anyone used such a service? Did you find it worthwhile? Thanks! Lisa
