Joni Wu, Luxury Travel Specialist
Specializing in what she calls "Aspirational Yet Attainable Luxury for the Modern Traveler“ with an emphasis on delivering experience driven custom itineraries, Joni’s foray into travel consulting grew organically out of an insatiable wanderlust, ever-present appetite for local food and drink, and a thirst for culture and adventure. With an undergrad from UC Irvine, an MBA from USC, and corporate management roles in technology and commercial real estate at the Walt Disney Company, the dichotomy of Joni’s structured background and inherent search for travel experiences has given her a unique perspective on how to deliver the most value for her savvy clients.
Passion is not a strong enough word because Joni is deeply in love with travel. In addition to specific trip planning and researching, she enjoys keeping up-to-date on industry news and educating herself with new destinations. Joni takes the time to understand each of her clients so that she can provide tailored recommendations, and as a detailed perfectionist, strives to create seamless itineraries. She also has profound respect for her partners in the travel industry and is continuously building rapport with hoteliers, tour operators, and other travel service providers.
Joni has been fortunate to travel to many destinations – she has high expectations and holds those standards for her clients. Her favorites include Santorini, Machu Picchu, Costa Rica, Florence, Palawan, and Iceland.
