    Is it fine, please?

    Did you book the reservation with the lady who you said you were going to talk to today?

    Thanks.

    The whole sentence sounds good but I think there must be something unusual.
    I think 'today' must be 'yesterday'.

    thanks.
    the person who is being asked told me yesterday that today she was going to talk to a lady that books reservations.
    how would you say it, please?
    thanks.

    You said it just fine! And that's a tricky sentence, too. Good job!

    well, the correct answer is 'yesterday' because you are asking her if she did.
    the same as:

    A: I'm going to play tennis today. ( A says this on sunday)
    B: were you going to play tennis yesterday. ( you ask him on monday)

    it's really tricky . If so, it would be as follows:
    Did you book the reservation with the lady to whom you had said you would talk to yesterday ?
