how it works

Here’s the nitty-gritty of this flat-fee service:

  • It happens over email for a period of 5 days, scheduled when it’s convenient for both parties. (Note: The days don’t have to be consecutive. But they shouldn’t be spread out for more than 15 days total.)

    During this time, I will spend up to one hour a day communicating via email and replying with recommendations. We will go down the list of:

    • Day 1: Talking about your interests (and those of your group), expected dates of stay, particular things you want to do or are interested in, etc.

    • Day 2: Accommodations (i.e. figuring out where to stay)

    • Day 3: Attractions and activities (i.e. museums, shopping, events, etc.)

    • Day 4: Food (i.e. where to eat, any dietary issues, etc.)

    • Day 6: Advice on the best ways to get to and from destinations you’re interested in - or around the city in general.

    • Day 7: Answering any lingering questions and sending you your bonus content!


Please note that if your needs slightly differ than the structure above, that’s okay! We can adjust accordingly. For example, if you're not worried about where to eat, we can spend an extra day discussing activities instead.

It also doesn't matter how long you're planning to visit Pittsburgh. Whether you're staying for a long weekend or two weeks, we'll spend those 5 hours via email hammering out as many details as possible. 

At the end of the 5 days, you’ll have a tailored list of recommendations and advice to help you create your Pittsburgh adventure, leaving you free to plan your trip as you want to - but with confidence!
