My Background

I am no stranger to travel. Having grown up in the UK, with a Czech Father, languages and travel were always a part of my life from the day I was born. My father worked in the sugar mill industry and often traveled to exotic places such as Africa, Indonesia and the Caribbean with the family in tow. Growing up in Europe meant traveling to different countries often. Every year was a new road and boat trip crossing borders to different destinations. It was only natural that I went on to study languages at university and obtained a BA Honors degree in French and Hispanic studies from the very prestigious Kings College University in London. Part of this degree involved living in France and Spain for a year where I immersed myself fully in the life and culture discovering amazing history, beautiful locations, new foods and lifelong friends with whom I still return for visits. During the long summer breaks from studying, I often took jobs in France and Spain to fund my love of traveling.

Following University, I fell into the entertainment industry and was fortunate enough to work for the next 16 years as a Production / Travel Coordinator traveling to many different countries.

Whilst working on a movie in Prague, I met my future husband, who whisked me back to Los Angeles to get married. We now have two children (6 & 9) who have also traveled extensively throughout Europe and North America.

I am thrilled to see the love and excitement my children have for traveling and discovering new cultures and I'm ecstatic to be able to pass these experiences on to other people through my meticulous travel planning services. Having traveled with my children since they were infants I especially understand the distinctive needs of families and parents to be. However, whether you are traveling solo, with children or with a multi generational group, I will work with you to custom design a trip that everyone will love.

Trip of a Lifetime

By: DG

Reviewed on: 05 Jul 2016

Jessica is PRO all the way -- We needed a European vacation planned for five adults and two children coming from two different cities in the USA and one in Ukraine. Jessica deftly handled this -- she was informative, offered options, and tailored the trip according to our tastes, all the while being patient and charming and generous. I was blown away by her app, which outlines the entire trip and allows 24-hour communication with Jessica, and she responds promptly. The app contains copies of all of your travel documents, everything right there at your fingertips. The places we stayed were amazing, seemingly tailor-made -- beautiful, well-appointed apartments and hotels either right in the thick of things, or just on the fringes when we wanted something quieter.

Kind and helpful, providing invaluable service

When I hit a wall trying to find the best destination for my family trip, I called Jessica who immediately got to work asking questions to determine what our family would love. We started with the idea of a cruise, and she told me about some very nice options, but because we were booking somewhat last minute, there weren't too many larger cabins left on the sailings we wanted with lots of time onshore for our family to play on the beach--things that were musts. That's when she told us about Beaches-Turks and Caicos and we were dazzled. It was perfect! She found and booked us in a large and comfortable family room with bunk beds for our kids in the Italian Village. She thoughtfully put together the flights, and set us up with a helpful traveler's app preloaded with our info that we faithfully used. The insurance she recommended was great as well. Throughout, she answered our questions and gave us great tips. We'll definitely call Jessica again for our next trip and highly recommend her.

Jessica helped make my mother daughter getaway super special. Booking through her provided us with special perks and upgrades that I would not have otherwise been able to get had I booked on my own. Jessica is an expert travel service provider and is absolutely lovely to work with. It was an amazing experience working with her and we will definitely use her services again in the future!

Bora Bora Honeymoon

We had the most amazing honeymoon, all thanks to Jesssica Hart! She is the best! Such a pleasure to work with. She listens to what you want and need, and even gives great suggestions for the things your not sure about. And goes above and beyond with the quality of her services. You truly feel like a VIP. I can't imagine what planning this trip would have been like without her. She took care of everything from the flights to the hotel and even fun activities to partake on the island. She does it all! And with all her connections, she gets great deals on just about everything you can imagine. We got to fully relax and enjoy our honeymoon without a care in the world because everything was already taken care of by her. We'd recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone!

We had the most amazing honeymoon trip to Hayman Island in Australia. We couldn't have had a better honeymoon trip without Jessica. We knew we wanted to go to the Whitsundays in Australia. Jess helped us find the exact hotel and the best deal. When we arrived she was able to get us upgraded to a one bedroom suite. They had printed two of our wedding photos and had a chilled bottle of champagne waiting. The personal touches really meant a lot to us. She also got us a private island escape where we snorkeled with turtles. When we returned to Sydney we stayed at the Langham. Upon check in we were upgraded to a better view room as well and they had a welcome fruit basket waiting for us as well. Jessica attention to details and making the trip feel special really shown through. Not only does she do great work but she is great to work with. She was always very quick to respond over email or texts. I would highly recommend booking trips with Jess. I know we will!

Jessica Hart was so friendly yet extremely professional from start to end. Jessica booked a trip for my wife and I to Dreams in Tulum Mexico. She took care of every detail including private transfers and trip insurance. I had a lot of questions about our trip and she was always happy to help and always got back to me quickly with answers. I have recommended her to all our friends and family and we are already to plan our next trip! Robert

Detail Oriented, Luxury Hotel Arrangements

Jessica turned a quick, one-night stay into a memorable experience for my family. As a result of her relationships, The Plaza upgraded us to a suite and provided us with personalized and thoughtful amenities (e.g., desserts and Eloise-themed gifts for our kids). Jessica was very quick to respond to all booking questions and requests during the planning process, and forwarded hotel confirmations right away. This was our first time working with Jessica -- we will be working with her again!

If you are looking for someone to take care of every detail and forecast what you might want/need well in advance so you don't have to think about a thing and just get away from it all, look no further. Jessica at Travel By Hart is the person to trust with your precious vacation time.

Always ready to offer advise and help

By: AL

This is the second time my family called on Jessica to help plan a trip. She was great and easy to work with. She has great contacts and is always ready to offer advice. A few weeks before the trip, we needed to switch a name on our reservation (which I thought would be prohibited) but she managed to make it happen. I don't think I would have been able to swing that if I had gone through the cruise line directly. She checked in before we left to be sure we were good. She's thoughtful and thorough.

Best Trip Ever!!

I was in the midst of planning a "Bucket List" trip for my wife and was getting overwhelmed by all of the details to consider. I mentioned this to my cousin, a producer in Hollywood who travels the world for business. He referred me to Jessica. The best decision ever!. She took immediate control and began the process. She even created a brief introduction video that I played during my wife's 50th B-day party announcing the trip. From flights to LA to Tahita to Bora Bora, to resort stay, excursions; she handled it all. All we had to do was show up at the airport. The rest is history. We loved the St. Regis. What a magical place. Intimate, personalized service - a little bit of heaven on earth. We look forward to booking all future vacations with Jessica. She has earned our trust.

Our time together as a family was surely made better by Jessica's impeccable services.

Jessica was remarkable! I'd never used a travel agent. I've always handled planning on my own, but since this was "the trip of a lifetime" for me and my kids, I wanted it handled right.

Costa Rica can be a bit overwhelming when choosing when and where to go. Jessica helped us filter through a lot of the options and dialed in what was a wonderful family vacation. We traveled with our 2 kids (9&11) and we found a great balance between family fun, maximizing our budget and even a touch of romance too. Tabacon water features are unmatched by any other hotel we have been to. Glad we were able to get a room during high season. Thanks Jessica

She got us a Dolphin Lanai suite at the illustrious Kahala Resort in Oahu, Hawaii. Our room was right next to the dolphin lagoon! It was absolutely breathe-taking to walk outside of our door, and hear/see the dolphins at play. The beach was just a few moments walk from our room as well, way beyond my expectations, but happily so! Jessica also made sure to follow up with me at every point in the process to confirm reservations and checked in while we were there to make sure that we had everything we needed. I will not only be booking with Jessica again in the very near future, but I've already begun recommending her to all of my friends and colleagues. This was my mom's first trip to Hawaii, and I wanted to share this special experience with her for my birthday. Thank you Jessica for making this the best vacation I've ever had.
