My Background

Helen Jordan’s love of travel begins with an actual love story: her parents! While stationed at a military base in France, Helen’s father fell for a local woman working at the base, Helen’s mother, and the pair eventually married. Helen was born in France but lived in many different cities as her family moved with her father’s job. Experiencing new destinations became innate for Helen, so it was only natural that she joined the travel industry.

Prior to travel, Helen worked in the HR industry for 20 years. She uses her experience working with people as well as her extensive personal travels to design custom itineraries. Helen loves getting to know clients and their motivation for travel so she can then create experiences that allow clients to get out of the tourist traps and into the areas where locals truly live. She believes that authentic experiences and interacting with locals can transform an average trip to an extraordinary travel experience. A lover of research, Helen will use her first-hand knowledge, global network, and Brownell family of travel advisors to find unique experiences that match each client’s personality.

Turks and Caicos 2018


Reviewed on: 31 Aug 2018

Working with Helen was great! She spent a great amount of time interviewing me to ensure she planned a vacation that meet my families needs and wishes. She presented us with 3 solid options and was willing to tweak based on our feedback. Some of our plans had to change once the trip was booked and Helen worked to make the adjustments. Overall, a good experience!

Sardinia, Italy

By: GinaLouise

Reviewed on: 16 Oct 2018

Helen and I go way back. We worked together in the Insurance Industry for several years back in the 90's. We worked together on many projects. I always admired her strong work ethic and excellent problem solving skills while keeping it fun and interesting. So, when she decided to get into the Travel business, it was a "No Brainer", that we would use her services to plan our next trip. She is well traveled and has been to many of the cities my husband and I would like to visit. Although she had not been to Sardinia, she researched extensively the entire Island for us, which is a very large island. She prepared a nice little book (a slight exaggeration) on important sites, museums, restaurants and hotels. She also booked all of our transfers and flights in and out of Sardinia. She also checked in via email while we were there to make sure everything was going well. I will absolutely use Helen again!

Wonderful Trip Planner

By: Pam

Reviewed on: 09 Nov 2018

Helen is very caring and careful to attend to all the details of a trip. She thinks of things I never would for myself, and makes suggestions that make the trip even more fun and interesting. She is good at understanding what you want and providing the right fit for the person's preferences. For example, I like quaint, locally relevant hotels rather than shiny impersonal ones, and she has found some of the most fabulous ones for me to stay in. She also has a way of making everything clear and easy to follow, and she plans unbelievable trips within your budget. Her itineraries are gorgeous as well as helpful. I really didn't realize what I was missing out on all those years I did all my planning for myself. I wouldn't plan a trip without Helen's help now!

San Miguel de Allende trip

By: Anyone

Reviewed on: 29 Jan 2019

We had an excellent experience working with Helen Jordan. She listened to us, and planned according to what we wanted to get out of this trip. She arranged a half-day tour of the city that turned out to be the best way to start our long weekend. We learned so much in that half day that we were comfortable venturing out without a guide the rest of the weekend. She found the perfect hotel location and the accomodations were wonderful. Everything went very smoothly on this trip.

Helen Jordan/Anguilla

By: Happy

Reviewed on: 03 Feb 2019

Working with Helen was great. She conducted a lot of upfront research making the process a less arduous. Anguilla surprisingly is not a well known place to visit as there are no casinos or cruise ships that stop. Helen was awesome at looking at the hotels and discussing options. I would definitely use her services again.

Awesome Travel Advisor

By: Riverviewer

Reviewed on: 15 Apr 2019

Helen is fabulous! She is very thoughtful, providing travel lists and information about destinations I wouldn't even think to ask for. She understand my taste, so bookings reflect the kind of places that intrigue me. More importantly, she makes sure every detail is covered and, consequently, the trip is seamless and fun from start to finish. I was so used to planning my own travel I didn't know I needed a travel advisor until I decided to go to Europe. Now, I am truly spoiled!
