A:  Of course.  You may book as many as you wish.

Q:  What if I am unhappy with the butler you assign me?

A:  After doing this for almost 10 years, we are rather good at matching families to butlers but if needed a change can be made. To date, this has not occurred, but there is a first time for everything.
