A letter from Knowmad co-founder, Jordan Harvey.
What is the Condé Nast Traveler Top Travel Specialist award, and what does it mean to earn a spot on this prestigious list? Join us as we extend a hearty congratulations to two of our Trip Specialists, Jordan Harvey and Renee Davies, for each earning this extraordinary award – their knowledge of South America travel is absolutely unmatched!
This has been and will continue to be a challenging time for us all – one that calls for unity, understanding, love, and hope.
As the world was reeling in response to the escalating coronavirus, with little to no warning, border after border of several South American countries began closing. The Knowmad team worked around the clock to get our travelers home safely.
We appreciate and thank you all for your caring support and positivity, and we send our heartfelt empathy to every person and industry affected. It is our privilege and honor to be a part of and serve this travel community.
