With more than 25 years’ experience creating seamless travel itineraries for her clients, Jill knows how to put it all together for you.  Amazon and Pantanal eco-adventures combined with art and architecture programs in the cultural centers of Rio and Sao Paulo, or perhaps a diving and hiking experience on the island paradise Fernando de Noronha, followed by a luxury country stay in Argentina’s wine region. Whatever special interests you may seek, Jill is determined to offer the right balance of activities and the sheer joy of exploring on your own.

Multigenerational Trips

Multigenerational trips are more popular than ever and South America is an exciting destination for children, seniors and everyone in-between.  From motorized river rafts that go directly up to the Iguacu Falls to capoeira lessons from a Bahian master.  Experience the Christ Statue on Corcovado Mountain at a private sunrise breakfast before it opens for the day to the public. Yes we can!

Amazon Cruises

Exploring the Amazon region by private yacht or traditional river boat gives you the privacy and flexibility to create your own itinerary. The style of the vessels can vary from simple to luxurious depending on your budget and cruising preferences. Boats are all well-staffed with captain, crew and private chef or cook. Some of our clients spend a few nights on a yacht followed by a few nights at one of the lodges, experiencing the best of both worlds.

Expert Guides

I have spent years finding and vetting the few trusted guides that I use in each locale, and I can say without reservation that they are truly world class. Time and again my clients return from their trips expressing that it was more like traveling with close friends in each destination rather than a hired guide. A guide can make or break a trip—so never underestimate the value of wonderful guides.
