My Background

I began my career as a travel advisor 28 years ago and never dreamed of the journey I would find myself on. Specializing in luxury ocean and river cruises, personalized travel itineraries in France and Italy, Safari, and in most travel itineraries including food and wine touring.

In 1998 I received my Certified Travel Counselor degree and in 2003 a Master Cruise Counselor Certification.Education in both travel classes and actual travel are vital for an advisor.My study tours have included the south of France and Provence staying in many of our Virtuoso hotels as well as enjoying some of the Michelin star restaurants. Italy is one of my favorites and I love the Tuscany region especially for a food and wine tour. October of 2014 I attended a Virtuoso Study Tour to Argentina, visiting Buenos Aires and Patagonia. The Virtuoso hotels were as always fabulous, and the food and wine incredible. My most recent study tour was to Croatia in October of 2016. Visiting Zagreb, Istria, Kvarner, Plitvice Lakes, Split, and Dubrovnik. The history and the UNESCO sights were amazing as well as the food and wine.

It will be my pleasure to assist you in making your travel dreams come true.

Jeannie Smith was very knowledgeable when planning our trip to Italy. She suggested beautiful hotels and booked us on fun, informational tours. Since this was our first trip to Europe, we had so many questions - but Jeannie answered them all and made us feel at ease. She met with us and provided expert advice about everything from hairdryers to taking trains between cities. She patiently answered this anxious traveler's many e-mails, even one from Siena! Thanks to Jeannie, we had the trip of a lifetime. All of our expectations were met as we traveled confidently through Italy. When planning your next vacation - be sure to call Jeannie. I know we will!

Without much advance notice, I decided to take a trip to Morocco. Jeannie did a great job of arranging my travel. When I had a bit of a problem with one of the hotels, she made sure it was resolved to my satisfaction. I highly recommend Jeannie!

Alaskan Cruise


Reviewed on: 11 Jun 2018

Jeannie Smith was awesome! My husband and I went in to book a cruise to Alaska two months out. Jeannie was instrumental in getting us booked on such short notice, with a great balcony view. Our cruise to Alaska was relaxing and breathtaking! We will be booking another vacation in the future and we will most definitely be using Jeannie as our travel advisor.

I called Jennie a bit close to my desired trip to San Francisco with my wife. We wanted to go to San Francisco for a whole week, which included Christmas Day. Jeannie arranged the trip - air travel, hotel suite, flowers and Christmas tree in the room; as well as a Christmas lunch for eight people in the penthouse restaurant. The room Jeannie booked was fabulous - a corner grand suite on the 16th floor, with incredible views! Jeannie was pleasant and profession, even in the face of my last-minute requests (during a very busy travel season!) I will also mention that enjoyed many benefits at the hotel, due to the great reputation of Virtuoso and Jeannie. I will definitely use Jeannie for my future travel needs - vacation and business.
