A Jewel in the Luxury Travel Industry

Updated: Jun 3

Today's interview blog will be about Jewel World Travel's President and Founder Julia Gregorian. Her travel agency and day to day responsibilities include curating bespoke travel experiences, liaising with top-tier partners worldwide, and ensuring every journey exceeds their client's expectations.

I won't say too much as Julia has beautifully done it below. So, without further ado, over to you Julia.

1.Can you tell us about your background and how you started in the luxury travel industry?

With a lifelong passion for travel and a background in hospitality, I entered the luxury travel industry to combine my love for exploration with my desire to create unforgettable experiences. Over the years, I've built strong relationships and honed my skills in crafting unique, high-end itineraries.

2.What trends are currently shaping the luxury travel industry?

Personalization and exclusivity are at the forefront. Clients seek unique, immersive experiences like private cultural tours, culinary adventures, and wellness retreats. Sustainable travel and eco-conscious choices are also gaining importance.

3.What are the most sought-after destinations or experiences among your luxury clientele?

Our clients are drawn to destinations offering rich cultural heritage, natural beauty, and luxury amenities. Current favourites include bespoke safaris in Africa, private yacht charters in the Mediterranean, exclusive stays in hidden gems like the Maldives, and cultural immersions in Japan and Italy.

4.What are some of the biggest challenges you face in the luxury travel industry?

Meeting the ever-evolving expectations of our discerning clients can be challenging. Each journey must be unique, flawless, and extraordinary. Additionally, navigating global travel restrictions and ensuring seamless experiences despite potential disruptions is critical.

5.Can luxury travel be sustainable? How do you deal with the need for environmental sustainability?

Absolutely! We prioritize eco-friendly accommodations, support local communities, and encourage low-impact activities. By collaborating with partners who share our commitment to sustainability, we create luxurious yet environmentally responsible travel experiences.

6.What is one of the most memorable luxury travel experiences you've arranged for a client?

One standout experience involved arranging a private stargazing session with an astronomer for a family in the Atacama Desert. The blend of scientific expertise and the breathtaking night sky made for an unforgettable evening.

If Julia and her team can plan such exciting trips for their clients, you can bet her holidays are out of this world! Julia and her family will embark on their annual 2-3 month European adventure. They will start in Iceland with glacier snowmobiling, super jeep adventures, and Viking feasts, followed by explorations in Austria, Italy, and the south of France. Every year, they spend several months in Europe exploring new destinations.


For her clients, the future is equally thrilling. Julia and her team have arranged everything from private NASA astronaut meet-and-greets to exclusive, behind-the-scenes tours in the world's most iconic locations. Their industry relationships and creative team make the seemingly impossible possible.

Thank you Julia for taking the time to give us your expert insider opinions on the intricacies in the world of luxury travel. If you'd like to learn more, check out their Instagram and their website!

Have a great summer!
