Our Story

We are for those who lead with curiosity and desire meaningful discoveries.


Deep knowledge of the travel world, personalized service, and attention to detail are our hallmarks. Tell us your dreams, and we’ll turn them into reality. Bespoke, thorough, inquisitive, and caring. It’s how we work, and what we can offer you.


At JPT, we are equally expert at putting together a special last-minute getaway, a weeklong cruise, or designing a multi-year travel plan. Whether you are a land explorer or a cruise devotee, or you prefer a mix of both, we are your go-to resource.

Our distinct expertise in both cruise and land arrangements affords us a unique position in the world of luxury travel and allows us to curate your ideal trip. We know what questions to ask and the people to call to create a journey you might never have imagined. We will be at your side 24/7 if your trip throws any unexpected curveballs your way. Our long tenure in the travel industry benefits you with our vast network of contacts and decision makers across the globe.


JPT is a Virtuoso agency, and our membership in the world’s leading travel network gives us privileged access to the “best of the best” in hotels, cruise lines, touring services, and more. As your global concierge, we deliver exclusive travel offers and experiences that you can’t get on your own.


From your first contact with us, it will be clear our goal is to create an itinerary perfectly suited to you and your fellow travelers. We will determine what you like and don’t in hotels, how you prefer to fly (from carriers to preferred seats), and how much time you want to spend exploring, and how much time relaxing. Special interests—whether culinary, cultural, adventure, or others—as well as any individual needs or requirements will be incorporated into the itinerary we create exclusively for you. While the JPT team has planned thousands of trips over the years, no two have been the same—each is designed with an individual client in mind.

You’ll benefit from our years of experience when it comes to details big and small, from securing visas to knowing the fastest way to transfer between destinations. Our many contacts around the globe will also help assure that wherever you are traveling, you will enjoy upgrades, resort credits, and other perks.

JPT’s hands-on attention does not end after we have planned your trip. We are always available and ready to assist with any problems that may arise along the way, from canceled flights to lost reservations. While our meticulous travel planning minimizes the chance of logistical mishaps, you can count on us to be your advocates whenever and wherever you require a helping hand.
