Ruth Smith

Tour Manager
Saint Louis


Ruth Smith joins Sunrise Tours bringing a lifetime of professional travel and service experience. Right now she divides her time between St. Charles, Missouri where she and her many sisters help care for her 89 year old mother and wandering through the American Southwest, where she and her husband, Doug, are wishfully intending their ‘someday retirement.’ Before coming to Sunrise Ruth was was a substitute teacher in St Louis and New Mexico, and went on to become an international in-flight service manager for the famous “Grand Class” MGM Grand Airlines. Those skill sets helped in her 8 years as Tour Manager for Educational Field Studies. “Once you start sharing the experience of discovering the world through travel, you just never want to stop. There is always much more to see, and I love seeing it with Sunrise.”
