Personalized Vacation Travel Specialist

Planning a vacation and deciding where and how to spend your hard earned dollars doesn't have to be a stressful and uncertain experience.  There is so much information available to us as consumers, and you shouldn't have to worry whether you are making the right decision regarding your vacation.  I believe it's crucial to have professional that will help you navigate through this complex business called travel. 

I attended the Travel Trade School more than 25 years ago, and was lucky enough to find a position working as an agent, where I learned the skills and some of the information needed to be a travel agent. That's only a small part of the big picture however.  Traveling around the world and immersing in the culture, and seeing some of what is off the beaten path, is what has really been integral in this career.  The places I have been and the things I have experienced have been invaluable to me in this wonderful job of mine.  Traveling with my husband and children, with girlfriends, and with other agents has allowed me to experience many destinations in different ways.  It has given me the firsthand knowledge that I truly believe gives my clients confidence that they are in good hands.  The satisfaction I feel when I meet with a client and know that I have painted a picture for them of what they can expect during their vacation is priceless to me. 

Beach Vacations throughout Mexico and the Caribbean were my first love, which led me to my first specialization as a Destination Wedding and Honeymoon specialist.  In my over twenty five years as a travel counselor, I have added Central America and Europe as well as River Cruising, to my ever growing list of travel experiences. Italy has become one of my favorite countries to spend time in, there is so much to see and do!  My most recent first-time experience was visiting Kuala Lumpur for our second Formula One race, then relaxing on the beaches of Phuket, Thailand, where we visited an elephant sanctuary and bathed with those beautiful gentle giants. 

Whether you are a first time vacationer or a seasoned traveler, I would love to help you plan your next adventure.  Working with an experienced travel professional will give you peace of mind and the confidence in knowing your travel details are as they should be. I look forward to working with you.

 

 

Destination Wedding and Honeymoon Specialist

I have been coordinating Destination Wedding Travel for over a dozen years. Although the primary destination for my clients is Mexico as it is convenient and very affordable, part of what I do is make sure that the destination and resort my clients ultimately choose is the best fit for their guests as well as for the couple.  Knowing these destinations from personal experience is what I think has been the key to my success in the Destination Wedding market.  While managing over 100 guests from multiple cities can be challenging at times, it is always rewarding to hear from my wedding couples once they return home and show me those gorgeous wedding photos!

I could not have done this trip without Joyce!!

Reviewed By Bev Money - Littleton, CO | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We just got back from a trip to Italy and Greece that Joyce booked for us. What a great time. Joyce provided a custom itinerary with suggestions on what to see and what not to miss. She set up several guided tours for us and gave us vouchers in advance with all of the information we needed, where to meet the guide and what time, etc. She hooked us up with a private guide who made our trip to Vatican City so much more than we ever expected. He had so much knowledge of the city and patiently explained to us the fine points of St. Peters Basilica that we would not have known without his expertise. The Viking ocean cruise in the middle of our trip was perfect. She even reserved our meals and tours for us. The hotels she booked for us were perfectly placed within walking distance to cities and tourist attractions. She arranged all of our transfers to hotels and airports.
Her knowledge of the entire process made this the "trip of a lifetime"! Everything was perfectly planned.

Dream trip to Italy

Reviewed By Mike - Lakewood, CO | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
I have always wanted to visit Italy but was overwhelmed with trying to organize it myself. I chose Joyce based on her experience and knowledge of Italy. I just returned from my fantastic 12 day trip to Italy. We spent half of our time in Rome and a couple days each in Florence and Venice. Joyce's contacts in Italy and meticulous planning ensured there were no glitches with transportation to/from the airport, between hotels and train stations, etc. The 3 hotels were in great locations, provided excellent service, included breakfast and had great WiFi. She arranged tours for several major sites. The guides provided useful historical context which gave our experiences much more meaning. Our itinerary was the perfect balance between planned tours and unstructured time to explore on our own. We had such a great experience we know we will be returning to Italy in the future.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
joyce smith responded:
Mike, it was a pleasure coordinating your first trip to Italy and I am thrilled it met your expectations! Thank you for trusting me to make the experience everything you hoped and dreamed it would be. I can't wait to put your next adventure together. There is so much to explore in this life, and I love using my travels to help others see the world from a completely different perspective. Thank you both.

Outstanding service.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
joyce smith responded:
Hi Rick, I'm thrilled that the arrangements I made for your family's trip to Italy was everything you expected and hoped for. Some private touring mixed with down time and self exploring is usually the best combination for most first-time visitors, so I'm grateful that my suggestions worked out for you all. Thank you!

Our Italian Adventure

Reviewed By EJM/SAM - Littleton, CO | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
My husband and I recently traveled to Italy. Joyce Smith planned the whole trip, transfers, air/hotel and tickets to activities. Everything went perfectly. We were gone for 2 weeks, 4 cities, 3 nights in each city. We were always met for our transfers to hotels, train and daily trips. The people were very friendly and added so much to our excursions. They were informative and really went out of their way for our experiences. We had all our paperwork lined out in a folder, so we knew what was going to happen and what to expect. The hotels were very quaint and in perfect locations. Joyce picked these for us. We told her and she suggested some things to do in each city. We also enjoyed having some time to ourselves in each city. It was a good balance between excursions and down time. The itinerary was so organized, we knew what was going to happen each day. Therefore, there wasn't any stress. We would highly recommend Joyce to plan your special vacation.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your impressions of your trip to Italy and the way it was put together. It's always wonderful to learn that my knowledge of Italy allowed me to design an itinerary that gave you everything you wanted to see and do, as well as giving you the time to enjoy some down time to explore on your own. I loved putting this vacation together for you and look forward to helping you with your next adventure overseas! Thank you again.

Amazing Trip

Reviewed By kyle - Santa Clara, CA | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Joyce was very easy to work with and was always responsive to our questions throughout the process. We were in different states, but she worked around that well. Our trip involved a lot of traveling between cities and Joyce helped us plan our timing perfectly. Our hotels were all in good central locations that made it easy to avoid extra transportation (i.e. taxis). Overall, I would definitely recommend working with her when planning your next trip to Europe!

Awexome Experience

Reviewed By Wayne - Denver, CO | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
Working with Joyce was a seamless experience. Ability to work within a budget and schedule: A+ After determining London would be our destination, she then provided multiple sight-seeing options that allowed for a day of rest after an overnight flight, small groups and even private options. We opted to have Joyce book the tours for us and couldn’t have been more pleased. We enjoyed the Tower of London/Crown Jewels, Changing of the Guard, a River Thames Cruise, a hop on/hop off bus tour, and a day at Stonehenge. The Kensington hotel is in a quiet area, close to the “tube,” has easily accessed cabs, and, if you’re hearty, walkable to SoHo. The other hotels on her list were equally impressive, so I would have no doubt she would book the best for each clients’ needs. Her knowledge of the area and attractions :A+. Quick to answer emails and phone calls to avoid costly airfare increases: A+
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
joyce smith responded:
Thank you Wayne, it was a pleasure working with you and I am so happy your trip was everything you expected it would be. I look forward to working with you again!
