Meet the Team

Founder: Jessica Handy-Burris

I specialize in crafting luxury individual trips, family vacations as well as group gatherings. I can offer a full vacation service - trains, planes, chefs, cars, private and group tour operators as well as hotel, villas, spa, and theatre bookings, excursions, and any special needs or arrangements - nothing is too big or too small to be included. I offer the experiences and restaurants that convey an exclusive and breathtaking getaway. I aim to make your trip nothing short of a royal and transformative experience.

 

I have traveled extensively at a young age in both a personal and a professional capacity. While at Howard University, I studied abroad in South Africa, Colombia, and Spain. I even had a passion for spending my college spring breaks halfway across the world. I’ve traveled to 33 countries, 6 of which have been alone. As a result, traveling has shaped my life and I want to help others embrace the magnificent wonders of luxury traveling.

I believe that a mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. I am extremely passionate about integrating iconic luxury vacations with enriching cultural experiences. Travel should combine ease, adventure, exploration, relaxation, and opulence. Whether you’re a skilled jet-setter or a novice, I can handle all of your travel logistics: popular destinations, trains, planes, yachts, chauffeurs, private and group tour operators, hotels, villas, spas, theatre bookings, and any other special request or arrangement. I will ensure that your trip is memorable!

Allow me to curate your perfect, personalized trip.

 

I have extensive travel experience, professionally and leisurely. I have been to several countries within the continents of Africa, Europe, and Asia. My love for international travel was formed when I spent a summer living in Spain learning about international law. I want everyone to experience the power of immersing yourself into different cultures and the excitement of stepping on to foreign soil.
