Who I am
I’m Helen Jordan and I design artfully crafted journeys tailored just for you.
There is nothing more enriching than travel. If you’re an avid traveler, you know. If you’re not, it’s never too late to begin.
My love of travel began with a real love story. My mom and dad fell in love when they met and married in France. Travel was a passion for our family.
We traveled extensively and moved regularly – over half of my primary and secondary education took place in Europe. “Normal” was growing up in a multi-cultural household with a semi-nomadic lifestyle that gave me and appreciation for different cultures and destinations.
What I do
I consult with you to learn about you and what will make your vacation some of your very best days ever.
I collaborate with you to design an artfully crafted journey tailored just for you that provides unforgettable experiences and allows you to savor moments with the people most important to you.
I won’t forget about you after we book your trip. I’ll stay in touch and provide helpful information and tips before you go.
I’ll be available while you’re on your vacation – to let you know I care (and I’m excited about your trip) – or if there is any need for me to assist.
I’ll reach out after the trip to because I’m so EXCITED about your trip that my “inquiring mind” wants to know how it went!
Who I am
I’m Helen Jordan, founder and owner of Jordan Luxury Travel. My passion is planning and bringing your dream vacation to life through artfully crafted journeys tailored just for you.
My love of travel began with a real love story. My mom and dad fell in love when they met and married in France. Travel was a passion for our family. We traveled extensively and moved regularly, so much that over half of my primary and secondary education took place in Europe. My sense of “normal” was growing up in a multi-cultural household, with a multi-cultural “nomadic” life, and appreciating different people and places in the world.
It was only natural for me to join the travel industry. The combination of the consulting skills I gained in the field of HR and my passion for travel enable me to really listen to you and design custom itineraries tailored to your unique desires, aspirations and requirements.
Travel is my passion. Adventure, architecture, art, culture, people, wine – you name it – I love it! I can still taste the salt water from falling off my surf board during my adventure to Costa Rica. The culture of Pura Vida demonstrated by its people was pervasive and welcoming. As a wine lover, I loved cycling adventure through Burgundy during harvest season. I stopped for a picnic lunch between plots and spoke with the workers harvesting the grapes – they were passionate about their wine – and it was a good year. My hiking adventure in the Azores was more rigorous and beautiful than I imagined. The local people gave me insight to the difference in micro-climates and micro-cultures on each island versus mainland Portugal. My cruise to Turkey and Greece was phenomenal and brought to life what I learned in my history classes. A big surprise for me was the beach culture in Tel Aviv! Sevilla during Feria is a festival in the streets. If you love tradition and horses, you must visit. The people are happy to share their culture with you. All of my trips teach me and fill my heart. I can’t wait for my next adventure!
What I do
Your trip is all about you and what you want to see and do. I consult with you to learn about your passions and design a vacation that defies typical cookie cutter itineraries and avoids the tourist traps (unless you really want to go there). You will enjoy authentic experiences with a true sense of a place and its people.
I collaborate with you to craft a vacation straight from your heart. More than providing a list of places, activities, and technical logistics of how to get there, I ensure that you are cared for each step of the way. My relationships with the very best local partners around the world provide you with personal attention, value-added amenities and upgrades, and exclusive access to places and people that you wouldn’t normally receive on your own.
Whether you seek a private, romantic weekend at a beach retreat or a multi-generation trip to a villa in Tuscany, I’ll plan the best property for the occasion. Or, perhaps you’re more adventurous and would like an expedition cruise to the Antarctic, a cycling trip through France, learning about ancient history by visiting ancient ruins in Italy, a hiking trip in the Azores, or an African safari. I love to plan memorable occasions that include your passions – a cooking lesson with a renowned chef, a private visit to a winery or two with a master sommelier, dinner with a local family, a private meeting with a genealogist, or front row seats at the Trooping of the Colour. I can make your travel dreams a reality.
I use my personal experiences, knowledge of destinations, and extensive network of experts in the travel industry to craft unique experiences so you discover more about a destination, its culture and its people. Whatever your travel aspirations or needs, call or e-maiI today to connect with me. I am as excited about your travel plans as you are!
Let’s start planning your next adventure!
