What did I think of the results?
I was a travel agent for 15 years and I spent a long time creating itineraries. In my opinion the results of this itinerary were exceptional. Yes, it’s not perfect, in a professional sense, but it certainly gives you a lot of ideas on an itinerary and is a great basis to do more research. The AI Chatbot also generated external links to other websites so that more research could be carried out. I deleted these to make the text tidier.
