Our Amazing Team

David Smith

Managing director/owner

David is originally from the UK where he graduated with a degree in International Politics. However after embarking on an 18 month round the world trip he decided travel was the journey he wanted to pursue. He now has over 30 years travel experience and has owned and managed the agency since 1993. David is also a member of the Helloworld National Associate Council and acts as the Queensland representative.

David thrives on planning extensive and complex travel itineraries for his clients- his customers know they are getting a travel researcher and expert as their agent and advisor.

His favourite places? Too many to mention but anywhere in Europe is always top of the list. In his spare time you might find David at a music festival somewhere in the world, enjoying live music! His  top travel tip- “get on that plane without any preconceived ideas about where you are heading off to and travel with an open mind”

Jennifer Smith

Marisa Lucas (Garcia)

Travel Advisor

Originally from Argentina, Marisa is part of the Travel Advisory team at Travel on Capri, and her love and experience of travel is evident in her vast knowledge and attention to detail. 

"There are so many wonderful experiences I share daily with my valued clients, from my "zorbing" in New Zealand, to salsa dancing in Havana.  Testing my taste buds in Bangkok, wine making in Sonoma Valley; wearing out my shoes in so many countries in Europe! My motto is to listen, plan and create the most memorable journey - one you can share with all your loved ones again and again, and the reason you will keep coming back for more."
