Condé Nast Traveler Top Travel Specialists


MONTCLAIR, NJ – December 2016– JILL SIEGEL, owner of South American Escapes has been named one of the 164 Top Travel Specialists by Condé Nast Traveler magazine for the 8th consecutive year.  By combining firsthand experience and 30 years of knowledge within the Brazilian Travel Industry, Jill provides the type of expertise needed to create seamless and unique travel experiences for her clients.  Out of thousands of candidates, 164 made the list this year.

“If you read Condé Nast Traveler, chances are you want to go somewhere and do something most people haven’t. And to turn a vacation into an I’ll-tell-my-grandkids-about-this lifetime high point, you need an “experience maker,” as we refer to them here at Traveler. These on-the-ground fixers don’t dole out canned itineraries.” said Condé Nast Traveler Senior Editor Paul Brady.

Brazil Travel Specialist Jill Siegel focuses on exclusive out of the way places that provide the very best in the Brazilian hospitality and tourism sector.  From coordinating travel for world class photographers to the Amazon or arranging private travel arrangements for clients as diverse as Susan Sarandon and Charles Darwin’s great great grandson, Jill’s eclectic network of contacts throughout Brazil has allowed her to create rave worthy itineraries.

Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Travel Specialists list began as a service travel directory 12 years ago, yet it has turned into a must-have list of the most impressive, knowledgeable, and experienced travel specialists in the world.

Each year, Condé Nast Traveler Senior Editor Paul Brady leads a team of editors in evaluating applicants.  Listed travel specialists have undergone a rigorous screening process that includes a 47-question application with sample itineraries and client references, and then continues with phone interviews and, in most cases, road-testing by Condé Nast Traveler staff.  Brady receives hundreds of letters annually from around the world reporting back on the trips that were planned by these specialists.
