We are proud to announce that AdventureSmith Explorations founder and president Todd Smith has been named a Top Travel Specialist in the Small-Ship Expeditions category of Condé Nast Traveler's 14th Annual Top Travel Specialists List for the second year in a row.
Todd is one of only 146 travel specialists to make this year's prestigious list, an elite group that is statistically tougher to break into than getting into Harvard. Handpicked by Condé Nast Traveler's Director of Consumer News and Digital Community, Wendy Perrin, the list culminates from Perrin's expertise and years of reporting on consumer travel issues.
This year's list, published in the August 2013 issue of Condé Nast Traveler, is titled "Perrin's People: The pros to turn to when a trip has to be perfect."
"After being on the list for a year and meeting many of the other Top Travel Specialists, I recognize what a huge honor this is," Todd says. "I am flattered to be grouped with such a fine assortment of travel proffessionals. There is no greater satisfaction than the recognition of my clients and my peers."
"Condé Nast readers challenge my ability to dream, and that is what make them so fun."
The greatest reward for Todd is the opportunity work with Condé Nast readers to plan fantastic trips and cruises to exotic destinations around the world. "One favorite part of my career has always been brainstorming itinerary ideas to come up with the perfect trip. This works best when the client is informed, engaged and eager to participate in the process. Condé Nast readers challenge my ability to dream, and that is what make them so fun."
