Submit it right here..of course, be warned that the "review" you get could be more like "American Idol" feedback than what you'd get from a TA..but at least it's free.

submitting it here. But I'm looking for one-on-one consultation and don't mind paying a resonable fee. After all, considering the amount of money I'm paying for the trip....a fee to do a carful review seems worth the investment.

I must say that I've used the board several times for advice and everyone has been very helpful.

Check out the classified ads on www.slowtrav.com.

Both Jim Zurer and Bob Little (Bob the Navigator) are travel consultants; they specialize in Italy. I think their fee is about $ 50. per hour.

I think Sally Watkins also has an ad there. Her area of specialization is, I think, broader, but also quite specialized for Italy. Her fees are probably considerably higher.

I agree - check out the travel consultants on www.slowtrav.com and select one who's an expert in wherever you're going in Europe.
