Chris Smith

Waukesha, Wisconsin Travel Agent

Luv To Travel, LLC, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Worldwide Cruises and Tours for 26 Years

2015 was a banner year for me, as I celebrated 25 years in the travel industry. That's a quarter of a century spent planning incredible, once-in-a-lifetime trips, creating extraordinary memories and introducing clients to my favorite places all over the world.

The best part? I've only just begun.

Travel planning is a collaborative experience. I like to spend time with my clients, learning about:

  • the trips they've taken
  • the destinations they've loved
  • the types of activities and cultures they enjoy
  • the places they still dream of seeing. 

Your input shapes our shared vision, leaving me to attend to the details and create the perfect itinerary, while you simply dream of the moments to come.

The more we talk, the more intricate the plan, the more fascinating the trip and the more remarkable the memories. The more familiar an agent is with a trip or tour, the easier it is to create a phenomenal booking.

I have sailed on more than 60 cruises all over the world, some deep water and some river cruises, all of them special and memorable in their own way.

I'm a CLIA Master Cruise Counselor as well as an Avalon Waterways Specialist, and I was recently recognized as a "Premier Agency Partner" by the Globus Family of Brands, one of the most prestigious tour and cruise operators in the industry.

This past summer I led a group through the Galapagos and Peru, an unimaginably exotic journey.

  • I've organized destination weddings
  • Set up honeymoons and exclusive all-inclusive vacations
  • Sent clients, friends and family to soak up the sun on the sandy beaches of the Caribbean and Mexico
  • Organized and led groups on cruises and tours to destinations around the world

 There is no greater compliment or confirmation of my abilities than referrals and repeat business, and my company is built on both. Some of my clients have been with me for the full 25 years, and it's been an incredible journey.

My company motto is "sending you where you would luv to go," and I would like nothing more than to do just that.

Without a doubt, she is the best!

She is the Best!

Reviewed By Deb Glowacki - New Berlin, WI | Traveled to
My husband and I have used Chris as a travel agent many times over the years and she has always done a great job for us. She has over 25 years of experience as a travel agent and because she does so much traveling herself, she can always tell you the best places to stay and the most fun things to do. I never worry about traveling if Chris has arranged things as she is always just a phone call away. You would be lucky to have Chris as your travel agent.

Everything we wanted

Reviewed By Kw - Wisconsin | Traveled to
Chris planned a trip through Switzerland for us that covered everything we wanted to see. We had a limited time before the river cruise she booked for us, and her itinerary covered it all. We saw St. moritz and Zermatt. Had great hotels at those two sites! Went on the Glacier Express! All train tickets were reserved. Had great seating and service. Wonderful trip!

Worry-free traveling

Reviewed By Louise - Milwaukee, Wisconsin | Traveled to
Most recently, my husband and I traveled to Cancun, Mexico, and everything was perfect, even the weather (which I wouldn't put it past Chris to put in a special request for that also). She also arranged our honeymoon trip a year ago to Maui and Kauai. It was a dream come true. Chris took care of every detail and we didn't have to worry about anything. Many years ago I traveled with Chris to France, visiting both Paris and Toulon Being a novice traveler at that time, I was a nervous wreck, but Chris' vast experience eased my fears and the whole trip was wonderful. I would definitely recommend using her as a travel agent. She listens and plans with you, building the vacation you want. "Luv to Travel" is the perfect name for her agency. Chris Smith truly lives it!

No Worry Travel!

Reviewed By Beach Lvr -Bob - Greenfield, WI | Traveled to
I would not travel without the help from Chris Smith. I have had the pleasure of making all of my vacation plans with Chris for about 10 years and it could not be any easier, from recommendations of all-inclusive resorts and cruises, to booking excursions at our destinations and even fast tracking Passport applications was worry free. I Luv the fact that Chris sends information about what to pack and tips for the type of vacation I am going on. Her expertise is second to none. I tell Chris my budget and what I am am looking for and she always finds the best property for the lowest price and usually gets some sort of upgrade thrown in, from a first class seat to an ocean view suite or a travel agent deal from a place that she has visited. I appreciate Chris booking excursions and tours ahead of time to save money and time while on vacation, it makes it fun to travel so I can enjoy my vacation. I have recommended Chris to numerous friends and they are now happy "Luv to Travel" customers. Thank you Chris, looking forward to booking many more trips with you.

You can relax when Chris is your Travel Agent!

Reviewed By Lee & Bette - Muskego, WI | Traveled to
We've been clients of Chris' for 20+ years and have recommended her to many of our friends, family members, co-workers and beyond. We always feel very confident recommending her because we know that she will do the absolute best job when planning your vacation. Her response time is so quick, you can be talking about a vacation at breakfast, and have it all booked and ready to go by dinner!! That is CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! We've not only booked many, many vacations through Chris, we've also joined her on two (looking forward to our 3rd) group vacation which she so efficiently plans. Truly, all we have to do is pack and show up at the airport!! :) If you are looking for a well traveled, very experienced, competent travel agent, Chris Smith is your Travel Agent!

No Sweat! Chris does it all!

Reviewed By Kathy - Milwaukee, Wisconsin | Traveled to
My husband and I have planned vacations on our own. We end up being snippy with each other, forgetting stuff, waking up in the middle of the night in a panic.... you name it. With Chris, we tell her what we want and she does it all. She never gets upset if we change our minds about something. She is there for us when travel problems develop en route. With Chris, it is like having your own personal concierge at your side. It is also super when she is able to guide us regarding busy seasons, weather, bargains, and room locations. Chris really has been there (where ever there is) so she knows how to help the traveler. Go with Chris, she is great!
