Excellent Service from Jill

Reviewed By Jim B. - Detroit, Michigan | Traveled to
Jill helped us plan a 12-day, two-country trip that was combined business and personal travel to Barcelona and Lisbon. Everything went well without a hitch, despite us being relative rookies on the international travel front. The hotels, the transfers, the tours, the advice on tipping, food, culture and sightseeing, Jill's help was irreplaceable. Jill took the time to get to know our preferences and needs to give us the best possible experience, and made the booking process quick, easy and fun for us. I would highly recommend Jill for the superior service she provides and the knowledge and experience she offers. We will definitely be using Jill for future trips! You should, too!

First trip to Croatia was perfect!

Reviewed By Niki - Grosse Pointe Woods, MI | Traveled to
I wanted to plan a trip to the Mediterranean to a new country in the Balkan region, after some discussion and research with Jill, we decided Croatia was the way to go. My husband and I booked a 10 day trip, our only 'to do list' was to experience Dubrovnik Old Town and spend time on the beaches. Jill figured out all the specifics and locations that would best suit our needs! We spent the first half of the trip in Dubrovnik Old town and the second half in a beautiful small island Korcula. She found us the best hotels that were walkable to town for dinners, but in our perfect budget price point. Jill also booked us a car rental that we used to get around the country side to do some exploring, it was the best decision, and made it so easy to get around. We have booked a few trips with Jill (all to unknown destinations in SE Asia and Europe) and she helps figure out all the specifics. I highly recommend Jill to anyone that needs help planning a trip, she is super knowledgeable and gives great recommendations. Whenever we follow Jill's advice, it always ends well!!!

Great vacation thanks to Jill

Reviewed By Normani - Sterling Hts. Michigan | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We had traveled to Rome and Venice last time and thought we would like to see both Northern and Southern Italy. Jill suggested we pick a hotel in north and another in south and do our excursions around them. Great idea. We started by flying into Florence with 4 excursions booked. Next a train ride and pick up to get us to Sorrento, where we did 3 more excursions. Next was a train ride to Rome and a nonstop flight from there to Detroit. Jill took care of flights to and from Detroit, 2 train rides to get to hub cities. Pick ups upon arriving at airports or train stations, to get to Hotels and back again to trains. She booked the hotels and the excursions. No excursion was a problem as all knew we were coming with verified reservations. There were a tremendous number of details as we were coming and going every day. Jill was up to the task! Trains, planes, excursions, hotels, and transfers from multiple places on multiple days, and Jill brought it all together!

Thank you Jill!

Hitting the Road

Reviewed By TR - Clarkston, MI | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Jill has organized two fantastic trips for me, one to Alaska and one to the Grand Canyon. My boyfriend and I are very inexperienced travelers so we depended on Jill for suggestions, recommendations and overall guidance for our trips. I can honestly say that we could not have done it without her! Because of her personal experience, Jill was able to take our general travel ideas and steer us to some great experiences while handling all the airline and hotel arrangements which made everything easy and enjoyable for us. We will definitely be calling Jill again when we are ready for our next adventure!!

The most wonderful trip EVER!!!

Reviewed By Happy Traveler's! - Warren, MI | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
It was our first time ever using a travel agent at the suggestion of a friend's friend. Jill Jones was FANTASTIC in every way- answered questions, provided suggestions (in which we followed everyone) even when we had a change of plans 2 weeks before departure, she handled it and made sure we were taken care of to the fullest. We will be using her again and have already asked where to go with the budget we have! Come on 2018, we are ready!

Best Agent Ever!

Reviewed By Jennifer - Detroit, Michigan | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
I have planned several trips with Jill. She is helpful, creative, and very prompt and professional with her service.

I have referred her not only to my friends but also to my work colleagues and clients. She was referred to me by a friend after I had two horrible experiences with other travel agents that didn't return my calls and emails.

When I sent her our family "bucket list" she not only made a suggestion of what we could do for spring break which was only a couple weeks away, but she provided an itinerary, air fare and train information so that we couldn't resist booking the trip. It was so well done, my best friend saw it and joined us for the vacation.

She is fabulous! I highly recommend her.

Jill Jones was Awesome. I gave her an idea of what I was looking for and she created not only an itinerary but the best vacation of my life. For so long I did not even think a travel concierge was still in existence - I will never book travel again without using the skillset that Jill can provide.

CLIENT COMMENTS RE: JILL JONES

Reviewed By Maggie - Palm City, Florida | Traveled to
My husband, and I recently returned from a ten day Caribbean cruise. Jill Jones, VP at Cadillac Travel, Southfield, Michigan, organized the trip for us. It was our first cruise. Michigan friends introduced us to Jill: she has planned their trips for several years. They give Jill a Five Star rating. Jill is personable, professional, very organized. She was quick to respond to our questions and requests. She suggested a cruise that was best suited to our interests and needs, gave us an in depth preview of the cruise line, their services and what to expect and set up a private island tour with an outstanding guide known personally to her. The travel kit Jill provided was complete to the last detail. We were well prepared. Consequently, we had a wonderful experience. Word of mouth recommendations are invaluable, as are repeat clients. We were comfortable relying on Jill’s expertise from our first email. We will ask Jill for her assistance again when we plan our next trip. Five Stars it is!

Stress-Free and Time Saving!

I love shopping online, except when it comes to travel! The choices are overwhelming. Jill has the expertise and attentiveness to know what flights will be best for me and my family. She gives a lot of thought to timing, destination, layover options, etc. And she consistently finds better prices and better schedules on my preferred airlines than I have on my own.

The best travel agent

Reviewed By Wade - Bingham Farms, MI | Traveled to
I have used Jill Jones for all my all of travel arrangements for the past 10+ years. She is very helpful and knowledgeable. My friends often book directly with the airlines, resorts, etc. That is a bad idea. If the price changes or problems occur, Jill is always able to get the lower price or make different arrangements. She is a pleasure to deal with.

Our first European vacation

Reviewed By Kristen - Berkley, MI | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Working with Jill made our first trip overseas so simple! She was very knowledgeable in the area and working with her allowed us to save money compared to if we had booked things on our own. Every hotel that she booked for us turned out to be perfect, and each one was different for each of the three cities we visited. Having Jill work out the logistics gave us more time to get excited about the trip itself. I can't stress how simple she made everything, and the trip itself was perfect. Thanks so much! I will be working with Jill again in the future and have already recommended her to others.

Finally travel made less stressful!

Reviewed By Josh - Troy, MI | Traveled to
Jill has helped my family plan several trips. Her enthusiasm is a breath of fresh air. While we love travelling, it's been difficult to plan travel given our busy family life and schedules. Ever since we handed Jill the reigns, we've been travelling stress free to wonderful destination we would never have even considered. And the best part is that if we encounter a problem along the way (e.g. canceled flight, etc), Jill makes our problems disappear without us lifting a hand. Perhaps the small things are the best part. Thanks for the beautiful flowers sent to our hotel room in Maui!

Jill gives us peace of mind!

Reviewed By Claudia - Bloomfield Hills, Michigan | Traveled to
Jill has helped us with several European vacations and she takes all the stress out of booking flights, coordinating train schedules. etc. (The train was particularly tricky to figure out in Italy.) She has gotten us excellent prices on the flights as well as lined up some very good hotel options. Our recent hotel in Florence, Italy was perfect: close to the train station for our early departure, and a spectacular rooftop patio. We have recommended Jill to several other friends and they have also been very pleased with her assistance. Thank you, Jill!!

Jill is Absolutely Amazing!

Reviewed By Mel - Detroit, MI | Traveled to
I had never used a travel agent before and didn't know what to expect. I contacted several other travel agents and heard no response or was just put off by their attitudes. I was about to give up but found Jill and Cadillac Travel, and I'm so glad I did! She was extremely helpful and took care of literally everything. She made it a fun process and helped me figure out the best vacation for my budget, presenting me with options and price ranges to help me make the best decisions. The trip was amazing and I have recommended it, and her, to everyone I know!

Jill treated us like Rock Stars

Reviewed By Jim W - Ferndale, MI | Traveled to
I used to think that I could plan trips myself simply by using the Internet, but than I saw what a trip could be when I planned it with Jill. She not only takes care of every detail from the driver picking you up at the airport, to the personalized tours, to the treats left in your stateroom or hotel room, but she has personal knowledge of everywhere that I could possibly want to go to. I know that Jill has saved us money and yet we have always been treated like VIP's on any of the trips that we have planned with Jill. I can't wait to plan the next one.

Jill is Superior in Every Way

Reviewed By Beth - Metro Detroit | Traveled to
My family assigned Jill the task of planning a once in a lifetime kind of trip for all 13 members of my family to celebrate my Mom's 90th birthday. As one can imagine, there were lots of challenges in planning such a trip(scheduling, financial considerations, the location wowness factor, wheelchair accessibility, etc, etc). Without exception, Jill met and exceeded all our expectations. Our Rhine River Cruise was absolutely incredible in every way ! Jill has also planned smaller, less expensive adventures for my family - employing the same knowledge, professionalism and personal touch with those smaller trips as well.

She handles everything completely

Reviewed By Joe B - Detroit, MI | Traveled to
We have used Jill each year for the past three years for major vacations. First, on a trip to Italy, where her specific knowledge of that country helped with transportation planning and things to do on our own (part of the trip was a separate tour; part was on our own). Second trip was an Alaskan land and cruise vacation. She made several recommendations on the cruise line and things to do, and got us significant ship board credits. She even got us air fare for less than any other source, including the airline directly. Third was a Bermuda Cruise. She did the research on choices, made a recommendation, and handle all bookings and general planning. Again, she got us a ship board credit, and a free upgrade that allowed us to eat in the premium restaurants on the ship. I do a lot of my own vacation planning, but I will use Jill as often as I can for major trips. She is very thorough, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend her.
