San Jose, California Travel Agent

To craft perfect itineraries, it takes attention to detail and dedication to a client. That is why I won't take on a client if I don't have the time to give that person's journey 100 percent of my time and energy. I also prefer to specialize in destinations that I have been to myself, including but not limited to:

  • Europe
  • India
  • Japan
  • South East Asia (China, Malaysia, Singapore, HongKong
  •  United States

One of the reasons why I prefer booking trips to familiar destinations is so that I can provide my clients with advice that I've learned on my own journeys to these locations. I believe these special tips enrich the journeys for my clients. Then, depending on the trip, I might also:

  • Give my clients a map of the area where their hotel is located and provide them with dining options
  • Advise them on what metro or subway lines to take to the various sites they are interested in visiting
  • Provide information on guided tours that they have expressed interest in seeing

Although I enjoy booking all types of holidays, I do specialize in multi-generational trips and also in leading Groups to destinations such as Europe. While I currently live in San Jose, California, I was born in India, so I speak English, Hindi, Gujrati and Marathi. And because I want my Indian clients to feel comfortable abroad, I always try do my best to locate restaurants that serve Indian meals.

Another area that I specialize in is leading groups interested in quilting. This stems from my own love of fabrics and textiles.

I truly hope that we can work together on your next trip. I am certain that with my expertise and your dreams, we can create the perfect vacation itinerary for you.

A Great Trip Planning Experience

Reviewed By Bruce - Snoqualmie, Wa | Traveled to
Jalpa is the best travel agent I have ever worked with. She is delightful to work with, has a very organized mind and manages all details very professionally, is flexible enough to work with changes requested by client cheerfully. We are in the process the first 24 day land/cruise package she has done for me and has amazed me. Glad I had her on my side. She has also done several travel packages for other family members and all have sung her praises. If you are at all thinking of using an agent to help you plan your next vacation, whether it a low key trip or the trip of a life time I don't think you could do better.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Trip was so well planned with so much attention to every small detail and to the perfection. She has profound knowledge of the places we visited (France and Italy) in particular. Everything was so well organized and planned that our vacation was so much fun. She works with dedication to make sure your trip is super awesome and is within your budget. Best thing is everything is planned according to your needs and tastes.
