How You See the World Matters

Unlocking Hidden Doors in Private Travel

About Luxury Travel Advisor Theresa Jackson

When I traveled the world and lived in Europe as an adult I began creating experiences for family and friends. It was important to me that they felt like treasured guests being led to all the “good stuff” about the place visited, and not just a tourist in a herd or with their nose in a guidebook. I began by meeting with locals and experts to design unique experiences, and I sought out the best accommodations and asked for added value and special treatment for whomever I was bringing to them. This is how I realized my true passion- and purpose.

For a luxury travel advisor, the true heart of a luxury destination is behind hidden doors. These will be opened just for you through our private custom-designed travel itineraries with your interests and style in mind.

Your time to travel is NOW. You yearn not just see a place, but FEEL it through personal connections with local people. You want to taste delectable foods and wines, inhale the aromas of local markets, see a locale through the eyes of its people, and touch the exquisite handiwork of others. You desire to go deep below surface level to the beating heart of a destination.

Theresa and her luxury travel team fully understand your passion to explore further and have life-transforming experiences. As a Luxury Travel Advisor, Theresa and her team custom-design your luxury travel itinerary based upon your interests and desires. Our goal is to ensure you have overflowing memories of a lifetime from the personal connections to the places you discover.

Theresa Jackson has been chosen as a 2017 Ambassador of Change, an initiative by G Adventures to support the 2017 UN International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

“My commitment this year will be to help spread the word about travel as a force for global good and visit places where initiatives are in working to support local cultures, communities and the environment.” ~Theresa Jackson, Luxury Travel Advisor

Our purpose is to create luxury travel journeys that are so fulfilling that the joy your memories bring you sustains you until the next time you travel.

Giving the Gift of Global Citizenship To Your Family

When you opt for luxury family travel you want to create context and perspective for a worldview. By broadening their horizons, you are providing your children or grandchildren the tools help solve the world’s problems. This perspective that you can gift them takes them from a classroom and into the world for real life experience. You are laying an important foundation in their future, perhaps igniting a passion. And the memories of time spent together is priceless. We create luxury trips that will educate, provide fun, and strengthen family connections.

Travel For Good Through Luxury Ecotourism

We believe in Travel for Good through luxury eco-tourism that benefits the places you visit. Your impact can support and sustain conservation, community and cultures. Our luxury travel team can make sure your travel is eco-friendly and that you contribute to positive change in the world while experiencing a depth of immersion that few can obtain on their own.

Theresa’s goal as your luxury travel advisor: to ensure you are a traveler, not a tourist.

traveler explores the world through their interests and passions. A traveler creates deep connections to the place visited. Most of all, a traveler brings home pictures of precious moments, not just monuments.

Luxury travel introduces you to the soul of the destination.

You enjoy beautifully crafted personalized itineraries that get you beyond iconic sites to memorable experiences that are unique to you.

You meet its people and experience first-hand their way of going about their daily lives. You savor the delicious food made for you or by your own hands. You sip outstanding wines directly in their leafy vineyards. You explore art crafted by local artisans in centuries-old traditions, meet up-and-coming talents, or encounter masterpieces with an expert. You connect architecture and the history that influenced it.

Upon return to the U.S., I saw lots of people were traveling but I was horrified at the WAY they did it– hoping for the best when booking online, wasting time searching and searching the web and STILL not being to access what I had mined only through personal contacts with the best sources in the world. I know things that are un-Googleable and have developed relationships with the top experts, guides and hotels in the world!

I started my travel boutique and continue making those connections because I want everyone to feel like a beloved guest wherever their travels take them and to have hidden doors opened for them so that they can have the best possible memories with every investment of time and money in a vacation. I make sure you EXPERIENCE a place personally, not just “see” it. With me you are a TRAVELER, not a tourist.

“Rather than being herded around to highlights for standard photo
opportunities, a traveler is immersed in the local culture.”

Luxury travel is an adventure.

You engage all your senses through the romance of the remote destinations and new cultures. You challenge your physical boundaries by trying new activities. You take your skills to new heights in exotic locales.

Luxury travel allows time to do absolutely nothing.

Luxury travel means the space for doing nothing in particular; to experience the luxury of time away from our busy lives, time to rejuvenate.

“The trip, in other words, gave me some amazing sights, but it’s only sitting still that allows me to turn those into lasting insights.”
–Pico Iyer
