Laura Smith-Moritz, Adventure Travel Company
7 Horton Plaza, Downtown
Get in line if you want to consult with this ebullient and meticulous veteran (and be prepared to pay the up-front fees that have become a fixture in the industry, starting at $25 for ticketing and $50 to $100 for basic counseling). She served for seven years on the Travel Agent Advisory Board to Rail Europe (the main purveyor of European rail products in the United States) -- few agents know more about European train service. Upscale Hawaiian vacation packages, the South Pacific islands, and international airfares are also among her specialties.
