My Background

I have had the pleasure of working in the travel industry for over 10 years; starting as a Travel Advisor and then working in hospitality. Early in 2013, I joined the team at Manchester Travel and couldn't be happier to be back working with clients planning memorable vacation experiences. 

If you stop by the office you will be greeted by Tally and McKenzie, the "Hounds of Manchester Travel". These two beagle mixes charm all of our guests! 

You may see me out running around town; if you do make sure you give a wave, I am likely training for my next marathon. I have already crossed the finish line at a few destination marathons, but have a lot more on my bucket list!

Whether it is a fun filled family adventure, romantic honeymoon, quiet escape to the unwind, or a memorable excursion to a new destination, I look forward to assisting you with all of your trip planning needs.

Cynthia planned a great trip for us, the resort was exactly what we asked for. Everything went smoothly, from flights to accommodations.  The beach was awesome as was the pool and a la carte restaurants.I would use Cynthia again!

Cynthia thought of everything and more and was very prompt in organizing alternative travel when the trains and taxis went on strike in France the night before we were to take a fast train to Avignon.  We were very fortunate to have had her to turn to in a bit of a crisis situation.  All our drivers were English speaking and were able to give us information that was helpful.

very professional. always gets right back to you.

Everything that she has done for me has turned to gold. I have booked several trips with her ( and her company) and have been extremely pleased with all the results. I can be a bit impulsive and Cynthia smashes it out of the park every time. I send all my friends and family to her and I will not have anyone else doing my trips.

Superior-Professionable, knowledgeable, & realistic.

Cynthia was fantastic. We had never met Cynthia in person, however, explained via e-mails or phone conversations as to our desire to have our daughter and niece visit Spain and Paris. We felt Cynthia was informative, truly listened to our concerns and was able to compose an itinerary that our daughter & niece where both safe and happy. The suggestions as to hotel locations for the age group we were booking, as well as the safety purpose, was 'spot on'. When my husband and I book any future trips it will be with Cynthia @ Manchester Travel. Thank you again. Casey & Tom Racicot

Paris, Brittany and Amsterdam

We arrived in Paris early Friday morning (9/16) and were whisked to the Hotel Mareuil by a car provided by the hotel (€50). We visited Notre Dame, La Musée Picasso and Saint Chapelle and had two nice dinners in local restaurants recommended by the hotel. Le Mareuil is an excellent boutique hotel on the edge of the Marais, near La Place de La République. After two nights we travelled to Brittany where we did an eight-day self-guided walk, organized by Headwater (UK). Beautiful scenery and lovely weather. along the say we visited Mont St. Michel and St. Malo. Our third and final stop was in Amsterdam. We took the Thalys train from Paris and it was extremely comfortable and on time. In Amsterdam we stayed at The Hilton Amsterdam in Appollolaan, which is an excellent hotel, near the museums. The rooms are updated and spacious, the service was excellent and the situation alone a canal is lovely. We visited all three museums and took a tram to to the center.

Birthday Celebration

Cynthia’s attention to our travel needs was more than we could ever have expected. We were eleven in total; different family members traveling prior to and post celebration cruise. She handled all arrangements at both ends for everyone. She managed our entire cruise excursions, and even arranged a surprise cake delivery for my birthday. I would highly recommend her to anyone for their travel needs.

Cynthia Smith listened to our ideas about lodgings and gave helpful suggestions as to tours in Venice, Innsbruck and Florence. We discussed possible problems such as short times between train and plane connections and were able to manage these and other problems when they arose. All in all we had a good experience with Cynthia's guidance.

Scenic tour of Cambodia & Vietnam

Fabulous. From my 1st contact with Cynthia 8 months ago to follow up after the trip, she was great. She made planning the most complicated trip we have ever taken an easy experience. Her attention to every detail made 6 flights with connections stress free. She handled things like visas and cancellation insurance so we didn't have to. She got better flights and cheaper insurance even after we agreed to the initial arrangements. We felt like we were her only clients. She always responded quickly and answered any questions and addressed any issues right away. I have referred a number of people to her and she is actually planning another trip for me & my extended family. To know that every detail will be taken care of is really a great peace of mind. I will use Cynthia for any and all future travels, regardless of how big or small the trip is. We have been back 1 week from this trip of a lifetime, and when I tell people about the trip I always include something about Cynthia.
