Passion & profession.
As an experienced world traveler and expert in art, culture, food, and wine, I can plan the perfect bespoke itinerary for you, your family, or group.
Janice Chieffo, founder & CEO
My love of travel began in 1980, on a study-abroad program in Salzburg, Austria. Since then, I have traveled the world in search of unique destinations and experiences, visiting over 50 countries on 6 continents and created A Moveable Feast Travel, LLC. to bring my travel knowledge and expertise to you, my valued clients.
A Moveable Feast Travel designs bespoke travel itineraries for the luxury traveler to Cuba, Italy, Spain, South Africa, East Africa, Asia, South America and beyond.
I retired from a 26-year career as a criminal prosecutor in Southern California to dedicate myself to my passion for travel. I am a lifelong student of art, photography, architecture, history, and music. I am also a passionate food and wine enthusiast, as well as a gourmet cook. I incorporate these interests into each journey I plan for my upscale clients. I am also a collector of fine art, photography and handicrafts and therefore an expert at scouring the local landscape to find unique treasures to bring home.
I am affiliated with the Virtuoso travel consortium, the most exclusive in the world, focusing on the luxury travel market. I am currently planning trips for individual clients as well as corporate and museum groups.
I will create an individual or group itinerary specifically for you, incorporating my insider connections, education and travel knowledge into each trip, to ensure its success.
Janice has such great traveling experience and knows people all over the world, that she can provide the ultimate trip guides, hotels, tours, and restaurants.
Why use a Travel Agent?
Some travelers we work with (before they end up booking) think advisors are an outdated concept. After all, can’t you research and find travel options online? You can, but using an advisor drives up the value of your trip in countless ways:
- Personalized planning – the trips and experiences you want (and those unforgettable moments you didn’t even know were possible), tailored to your interests.
- Travel perks, from hotel room upgrades to complimentary breakfasts and spa treatments, exclusive cruise excursions, and more.
- VIP access around the globe: See the Sistine Chapel after hours, skip the lines at Angkor Wat, explore the Galápagos Islands with a third-generation naturalist guide.
- Insider knowledge. Thanks to their own travels and personal relationships with Virtuoso partners around the world, Virtuoso travel advisors take trip recommendations well beyond the expected.
- Peace of mind – leave the logistics to us, and rely on your advisor for insight and support every step of the way. Last-minute cancellations, border closures, unexpected changes – travel advisors have you covered, now more than ever.
Janice is superb! She is funny, brilliant, and always makes sure she gets our family the best deals on the best vacation packages. We love her and recommend her without qualification!!!
A Moveable Feast Travel
My focus is to plan trips for those of you looking for a unique, personal experience while still getting value for what you are willing to pay. I work within most budgets, but focus on properties in the 4 to 5 star range, as that is the range where I feel that my clients have the best travel experiences.
Janice was fantastic from the beginning. She found the perfect trip for us to suit our needs. Her suggestions from which area of Africa to travel to, which company to use as it relates to the safari we were seeking, to the number of days necessary to see all we needed to was spot on. Janice arranged everything from beginning to end, including the plane flight arrangements. As well, she remained available to answer all questions we had pertaining to our trip and did so in a timely manner. We had a wonderful trip and can’t thank Janice enough for the work she did to make it happen.

Just returned from a trip to London with A Moveable Feast Travel. What a wonderful experience! From exploring the street art scene in Shoreditch to taking in the theater at the Royal Drury Lane by night. From browsing souvenir t-shirts shops on Oxford Street to viewing the stunning gowns at Harrod’s on Brompton Road. From sharing a pint at a local pub on Columbia Street at the to enjoying a very proper English high tea at Claridge’s. From enjoying the greens at Hyde Park to the sanctuary of London’s private clubs. Janice truly combines her vast travel experience, her love of travel and her joie de vivre to bring her clients the best travel experience possible!
