My Background

Jeanne Polocheck is a former television producer with a 20 year career in national and local broadcasting. In 2014 she left the corporate world to focus on her passions - travel and wine. She produced and hosted Real World, Real Fun (CBS/Houston), a family travel show which helped viewers discover incredible destinations like Malta, France, Greece, and Big Bend National Park. In 2016 she became a Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers with the goal of helping Houstonians understand and enjoy wines from around the world through fun wine education classes, opening a wine and truffle store in the Memorial area of Houston called The French Market and a luxury travel firm, Well Traveled Texan.

She plans custom itineraries for clients all over the globe, and continues to help viewers discover new places through Well Traveled Texan travel video segments on her website, exploring exotic destinations like New Zealand, Australia, Central America, the Canadian Rockies.

Every June, she personally hosts a fun annual "laid back ladies" trip to Provence. Based at a fabulous estate in St-Remy, guests live like a local in the south of France, as Jeanne takes them wine tasting, on culinary and cultural adventures and shopping the famous antique and village markets of Provence to experience the famous French "joie de vivre".

Jeanne grew up in Europe before moving to Washington, DC as a teenager. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with degrees in Advertising & Radio/Television/Film and completed post graduate studies at UCLA's Film & Television's program of Screenwriting & Producing. She comes by travel naturally as a former military brat and daughter of travel agency owners. She's lived on the east & west coasts and now calls Houston home for the past 17 years. She's a beach lover, ski bum and a city girl, and loves spending time in the great outdoors with her husband, two teenage daughters and planning exciting adventures for her clients and the many friends she meets along the way. For a custom itinerary with professional planning and great local experiences, contact Jeanne via email at or 713.385.7948.

Incredible! She anticipated all our needs and took care of everything! Had great ideas of things for us to do and listened if she suggested something we didn’t think we’d like. The entire trip was just perfect!

Jeanne is a true professional

Jeanne is a true professional. She really listened to all of our interests, wants, desires, wishes and put together a fantastic trip! We usually get home and dissect a trip and determine the things we would change. We had absolutely nothing we would have changed on a 3 week trip! We think that is amazing. She was so wise in helping us decide the smartest ways to use our time and money. Jeanne is fabulous and we can't wait to plan our next trip with her!
