Laura Smith

Greetings, fellow adventurers! I’m thrilled to shine a spotlight on one of our very own at Travel Unrivaled – Laura Smith, the Experience Designer and Guide extraordinaire. Laura’s journey in the world of travel and her commitment to curating exceptional experiences have left an indelible mark on our team and our clients.

Laura’s love affair with travel began long before  she joined the Travel Unrivaled family. She always had a fondness for exploring new horizons, but it was her year-long adventure as an expatriate in England when her children were young that truly cultivated her passion for wanderlust. It was during this transformative year that Laura discovered her innate ability to connect with people from diverse backgrounds and to create magical experiences.

Before her Travel Unrivaled chapter, Laura had a successful career as a curriculum creator and a remarkable 30-year teaching journey under her belt. Little did she know that her background in education would seamlessly blend with her love for travel to forge a path that has led her to become a guiding light for over 150 students across Europe.

Laura’s dedication to continuous learning and staying up-to-date with the latest developments in European travel is awe-inspiring. Her voracious appetite for knowledge is evident in her extensive credentials, including certifications with the Tourism Boards of Ireland, Scotland, and Spain. These accolades, coupled with her general coursework in European travel, make her an invaluable asset to our team and our clients.

But what truly sets Laura apart is her unwavering commitment to hand-crafting unique and personalized experiences for each of her clients. She’s not content with merely organizing trips; she strives to create adventures that resonate deeply with the individual traveler. Whether it’s the thrill of sledding down the Swiss Alps, the excitement of deep-sea fishing in the Mediterranean, or the awe of witnessing the Northern Lights in all their glory, Laura goes above and beyond to ensure that every moment is a treasure.

Laura’s dedication doesn’t end when the itinerary is set. She believes in taking care of all the nitty-gritty details, leaving her clients free to savor every moment of their journey. Her meticulous planning and unwavering commitment to excellence mean that you can trust her to provide a seamless and unforgettable travel experience.
