Connoisseur Travel is pleased to announce an expansion in our leisure travel offerings.

This exciting new initiative is being led by Jean Newman Glock, who has joined us as Director, Leisure Travel Services. Jean’s experience has given her access to unique and enriching travel opportunities we can now make available to our clients.

Jean comes to Connoisseur (CTL) from 16 years as Senior Program Manager for Smithsonian Journeys, the travel program of the Smithsonian Institution. There, she managed their portfolio of specialized international tours and cruises in addition to their well-known Student Travel Program.

Because Jean has traveled extensively in Western and Eastern Europe, Russia, the Middle East and Africa, as well as attending college in Lugano, Switzerland and receiving a Master’s of Science in Foreign Service from Georgetown University, she has the “feet on the ground” knowledge that differentiates Connoisseur’s expert leisure service from other travel companies.

With Jean’s leadership, you will be offered exciting and different travel opportunities in the months ahead.

Whether you’d like to sail the turquoise coast of Turkey in a gulet or cook your way across Provence, or possibly trek to see gorillas in Uganda or experience operas in Europe – we can plan the perfect adventure for you.

To receive Jean’s exclusive travel insights, please contact her by email or give her a call. She looks forward to sharing her passion for travel with you.
