Daniel Smith

I worked in Pharmaceuticals until a Tag Rugby Tour to Uganda opened my eyes to travel. Since then I have traveled to the India Subcontinent, my specialist area, over ten times. Explored a good chunk of West Africa and spent 9 months exploring Latin America.

Travel with a focus on discovering local cuisine and trying fascinating new experiences, away from the main tourist trail, is what appeals the most!

What my guests have said

"We certainly had an excellent vacation and Daniel put together a great itinerary for us. Having spoken to him, he perfectly judged our needs and we were not faced by too extensive a tour. Everything ran very smoothly and we were impressed by the care and attention to every detail. Thanks again, especially to Daniel, for a wonderful and memorable vacation."

"Daniel listened to our requirements and designed what we both agree was one of our best trips to date."

"When looking for an agent to book this trip the initial contact from Daniel was enough for us to decide to use Scott Dunn. Our experience on the trip was enough for us to ensure we will use Scott Dunn again."

Travel nuggets

  • Visit the Taj Mahal as early as possible to avoid the bustling crowds.
  • Try the banana curry on your rice barge in the Keralan backwaters – the best I’ve had!
  • Sit on the left side of your Druk Air flight from Kathmandu to Paro for the best views of the Himalaya.

My hot picks

Ellerton,Gampola, Sri Lanka

My favorite property in Sri Lanka. Tucked away in the hills, close to Kandy. Superb for walking, biking and taking a stroll with Ben – the black lab.

PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi,North Malé Atoll, Maldives

The underwater spa is surely an unique experience. Pampering whilst submerged amongst the tropical marine life. Relaxation and enjoyment.

COMO Uma Paro,Paro, Bhutan

Bhutanese hospitality in luxury surrounding.
