My Background

My passion for travel began 20 years ago with a college study abroad program in Madrid. After living in Spain for 6 months, I knew I had to see the world! Since then, my adventures have taken me to amazing destinations throughout the globe and each time I visit somewhere new, I fall in love! I have introduced my own children to the thrill of travel and am excited to collaborate with you and your family to do the same!

Recently I have visited the tranquil island of Anguilla in the Caribbean where I was amazed by the turquoise shades of ocean and had the opportunity to eat a fabulous meal in a treehouse! Nevis is also a great place to unplug and unwind; get ready to explore untouched beaches and keep your eyes out for the monkeys wandering the island! Another Caribbean favorite of mine is the Cayman Islands. It is a must see due to the crystal clear and calm ocean, incredible restaurants (my daughter got to grate her own wasabi here! the island has a Food and Wine Festival each year!) and multitude of family activities (dancing with dolphins? check! scuba diving at night? check!). In Cabo San Lucas, I watched fireworks over the Pacific and took a tequila tasting class.In Punta Mita I ate the most delicious and fresh ceviche which was made poolside, of course. In the Riviera Maya I became friends with the resident alligator that lived underneath our lagoon suite and experienced an amazing(and fragrant!) tequila massage in a treatment room facing a lush mangrove. I want to help you explore the world and create incredible memories!

No two people are the same, and my approach to travel planning mirrors this statement. I collaborate with you to design a custom-made travel experience; your itinerary will reflect your unique interests and desires. My detail oriented nature means every aspect of your trip will be taken care of, and my relationships with providers means you will receive special perks and VIP treatment. Where in the world would YOU like to go?

Highly Recommended

By: Amy

Julie planned a trip to London and Paris for my family. We have 2 kids so we wanted to make sure we included time for playing in the parks along with the sightseeing. Julie helped us strike the perfect balance, finding us convenient lodging for a family and wonderful guides that took the stress out of navigating an unfamiliar city. Her attention to detail and follow-up made the trip effortless and enjoyable. She's the best!

Denver, Colorado Trip

By: Jessica

Reviewed on: 17 Oct 2017

Working with Julie was a great experience. She showed superior knowledge of the area and listened to all our requests regarding hotel locations and prices. She followed up on the hotel and stayed on top of our reservation (even having to deal with the hotel claiming to have "lost" our reservation at one point!) I would highly recommend Julie Schmidt to anyone planning a trip, no matter how big or small, as she took the guess work and hassle out of planning.

The trip was perfect. From start to finish, we could not find any issue. The resort was a great suggestion. The staff, food and room were all first class. The beach and the water were the best we have ever seen in our travels. We always felt safe at the resort or in town. We look forward to booking this same trip with Julie!

Easy Breezy Beaver Creek

By: Amanda

Reviewed on: 05 Apr 2018

Julie booked our family spring break trip to Beaver Creek this year, and it was wonderful. We have skiied every year for the last several years and this was by far the easiest - she found us excellent quality accommodations with easy access to the base and ski-in and our access to lifts for the adults. We will definitely use Julie in booking our future travel!

Pelican Hill Trip

Julie planned an amazing babymoon at Pelican Hill for us. We received an upgrade to an ocean view bungalow and credit for breakfast each morning. Julie made sure we were taken care of at every turn during the trip. We felt quite special and pampered by Julie and Virtuoso!

We had an amazing experience working with Julie Schmidt to plan our Italian vacation. From Venice to Florence to Rome, every detail was perfect! From the minute we landed, Julie’s team handled everything! From private water taxis to chauffeured Tuscan wine tours, we just showed up and everything was handled.....and the team couldn’t have been more pleasant! Thank you for the best trip we’ve ever taken! We’ll be planning another trip with you soon!!
