Why Smith Travel?

Joanne Smith knows that we all lead busy day-to-day lives, which is why we have come to cherish the time we have to put that aside and experience a world outside our own zip codes. Joanne strives to relieve you of the work required to plan and design those escapes by prioritizing your specific needs, wants and desires. As your trusted advisor who understands your specific tastes and preferences in travel, you can be confident each precious vacation will be a special experience that will be remembered for years to come.

Through her thorough research and fastidious attention to detail, Joanne will design an itinerary that is created in partnership with you, incorporating everything necessary to make your travels comfortable and carefree, including notifying all vendors of special needs, such as health or diet issues, while adding additional amenities, whenever possible, and personalized touches to enhance the experience.

Our relationship begins with the “Discovery” conversation to establish your travel style, preferences, and what you hope to achieve from your trip, from total cultural immersion to relaxing on a gorgeous beach and everything in between. We then explore your travel options and potential destinations, be it a custom tour, cruise or resort, matched to your tastes and objectives.

Through Joanne’s affiliation with Brownell Travel, you have access to the best guides, tours and hotels the world has to offer. We will create an authentic experience that will instill long-lasting special memories.
