We very happily offer complimentary Bethel/NY trip planning consultations. Advice is given regarding logistics, airport selection, recreation, food/dining recommendations, lodging, Bethel appointments, MET tour reservations, NYC/Hudson Valley sightseeing and more. It is one of my favorite aspects of running this business. We do not charge for this service, even though the majority of these conversations are not income producing. However, if you feel inclined to donate funds to compensate for our time and expenses...I very appreciatively accept your generosity. There is no "suggested amount." Give IF and WHAT you can. An equalizing will take place. Thank you so much.
