"Thank you to Joanne Smith and Smith Luxury Travel for helping book our trip to Vegas! We have been getting spoiled since we got here 😊.  The Bellagio is awesome! We were upgraded to a room with a great pool view on the 24th floor - the views are amazing!"      Kate M.

"... everything on our vacation that you planned exceeded our expectations!  The hotel was not only beautiful and well located, the people and service were top notch. All hotel staff went out of their way to make sure our every need was met. I would definitely recommend staying there, and thank you for suggesting a Riad. Both our driver and guide were also excellent and worked hard to make our trip special. Our guide for the Atlas Mountain excursion was super and had us for tea at the home of his sister-in-law after our hike and picnic - definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Finally, the El Jadid resort golf course was one of the best we had ever played. It was the perfect "cherry on top" of a vacation we will always remember. Thank you again."  Debbie W.

"Sri Lanka provided many wonderful moments and each day had special experiences that we will always remember.  Thanks for checking and thanks for your letter yesterday via the hotel.  We have been exceptionally well taken care of. Thank you for your letters along the way and for all your attentiveness.  No doubt you helped to make sure we received VIP treatment, regardless of whether we deserved it or not."  Jeff M.

"Greetings from Milan !  Everything has gone without a hitch.  Well done indeed!   Hotels were very  comfortable and upgrades were forthcoming without any prompting.  St. Regis was outstanding in every way.  La Scala Box Office worked surprisingly smoothly  given that there were large “ SOLD OUT”  signs on display and crowds outside clamouring to get in ! Performance was unforgettable - Leo Nucci as Rigoletto is the Maestro in the role. Amazing ! Congratulations - your attentive hard work paid off - moi aussi!"   James T.

"As my husband keeps saying, you really knocked it out of the park!  Our trip was incredible and everything you did for us made our travels very comfortable and stress free.  Normally he is a pretty stressed out traveler, but with your help, I was able to take the reins and he didn't have to worry about a thing.  Everything worked out perfectly!  We loved all the hotels. In Florence, our room was gorgeous and very large and the staff couldn't have been nicer - upon our arrival, we had sparkling wine and a beautiful fruit bowl and cookies awaiting us in our room. Our hotel in Rome was also fabulous and the location was great. Our tour guide was incredible and would definitely recommend her for a family with children - she was really great and we enjoyed her company.  Without a doubt, I will absolutely recommend your services to all my friends and family as well as use you for any of our future travels.  Thank you so much for all of your assistance, especially all of the last-minute help you provided in getting us to Italy - I'm so glad we didn't try to travel by car!"  Hillary D.

"I just wanted to thank you so much for arranging our fabulous weekend away in Newport, RI staying at the amazing Castle Hill Inn.   Your suggestion to go to Newport was excellent and when you recommended the Castle Hill Inn it was the perfect choice.  We were treated like royalty by the staff and we very much enjoyed our welcome bottle of champagne!  Thank you so much once again for all your help."  Kate G.

"You are correct in saying the anticipation of the trip is as exciting.  Thank you so much for the Fodors Travel guide for Colorado. What a thoughtful gesture. Thanks again and I will use you for all future trips and recommend you to my friends and coworkers....Having a fantastic time and the skiing is amazing. Niece is having a ball. Thanks again for your help!"  Katharine M.

"Hi Joanne - Thanks so much for all your help - this has been such a fabulous trip!  I will treasure the memories and look forward to telling you all about it when I'm back. " Amy G.

"Hello Joanne - I just wanted to say how fantastic our trip to Italy was and thank you for all the attention you gave us.  We have to get together soon, as I have tons of photos and want to tell you all about it.  Looking forward to seeing you soon."  Liz & Greg A.

 

"Sri Lanka is all good so far.  Thanks for checking and thanks for your letter yesterday via the hotel.  We have been exceptionally well taken care of.  The Amangalla is fabulous, of course, and we loved the Geoffrey Bawa tour of his estates and hotels.  Thank you  for your letters along the way and for all your attentiveness.  No doubt you helped to make sure we received VIP treatment, regardless of whether we deserved it or not."  Jeff M.

 "We want to thank you, Joanne, for another amazing trip! Between the hotel room upgrades, anniversary champagne and chocolates, flawless coordination of our flights and transit and all the little things that really are big things when traveling, the trip was very memorable!  We love having a travel advisor (friend, partner and advocate) working with and for us again. What a pleasure to have professional help... who would have thought someone who has been to over 60 countries needs help... well we now realize we do!  The trip to Mexico & Guatemala was great, and we loved seeing all those Mayan pyramids and sites. We also appreciated you looking after us for our trip to Iceland, Scotland, and Argentina/Chile. We can't wait to go on our next adventure to Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan this spring for Marianne's big 50... between the hotel help, flights and passport/travel logistics, I can honestly say we are ready to take on 6 more countries.... yes and very excited in knowing we are in great hands! We have provided your name to several friends and travel companions on our trips because after hearing about their experiences we know they will really appreciate your value add.. They unfortunately got the room with no air conditioning and mosquito nets while we rested soundly. So thanks again for once again being there for us."  Chris & Marianne S.

"Best travel advisor! Joanne is fantastic. I travel a lot for both business and pleasure. This is the second time she has arranged a trip for me and she is the absolute best! My daughter even said, 'Mom, your travel agent rocks!'."  Kelly Z

"Hi Jodi - We are now calling this our mini road trip. Lol We had a very nice time at the Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond. This place is gorgeous and the location and weather couldn't have been more perfect. Even though we didn't get the massages we still had a lovely time. They gave us complimentary massages for the future. We ate at Stars both nights and the food and wine were delicious. There is one waiter, a man named Chance I think. He gave phenomenal dinner service. We visited the maritime museum in lieu of our massages. And our boat excursion was so peaceful. The entire trip was relaxing and calm. Just what we needed. Thanks for your help! Feel free to post any photos as you wish. :)."   Renea and Duncan D.
