Change the Way You See the World

At Vacations by Jillian we think that travel is about choosing to invest in your most important relationships, deliberately slowing down, and letting the environment, history, and community of a place inspire you. Helping our clients create meaningful memories they will reflect on and carry with them for the rest of their lives is why we do what we do. It’s never just about the logistics of travel (although we handle those, too). It’s about getting to know you and making sure you have your ideal vacation.


In today's travel landscape there are many details to think about - passport requirements, entry forms, flight changes to keep track of - the list may seem endless, and it's ever changing - but don't worry - we've got it handled! At Vacations by Jillian we specialize in  in creating custom itineraries based on your individual needs - and taking the pressure off of you. We love getting to know our clients and designing exactly what's right for you - each and every time you travel.

Kind Words from Our Amazing Clients

"I am amazed at Jillian’s ability to take someone’s vision for a trip and bring it to life with excursions, recommendations, tours, and general knowledge of places around the world. My trip was incredible. I was able to see castles, take hikes, go on tours, and sightsee across the country. Jillian’s honesty and integrity with her work helped me feel safe and supported as a solo traveler. Her organization of itineraries, tickets, vouchers, maps, and recommendations for sightseeing was superb. Having hard copy and digital copy was accessible and helpful while being abroad. I am so grateful to her for the care she put into planning my trip of a lifetime!"

"Thank you Jillian for creating an exciting and memorable trip. The itinerary you designed for our 10 day tour of Iceland was perfect. The sequence was easy to follow with the help of your app. The excursions were fun and educational - exploring a tunnel underneath a glacier, soaking in hot spring baths in a canyon, hiking a glacier, and ATV tour on lava fields! It was evident that Jillian really listened to us - all of our requests were met- and beyond. We are looking forward to planning our next trip with Jillian! I would highly recommend Vacations by Jillian."

"Vacations by Jillian helped make a sisters trip to Italy that we had been planning for years come true. Jillian’s expertise in finding the perfect hotels, tours and restaurants is exemplary! Her patience in listening to us as we try to decide exactly where we wanted to go was amazing. We thank you for understanding our crazy sense of humor, our indecisiveness at times and the many emails. You are the best of the best at what you do."

"Jillian helped us plan an amazing trip to Costa Rica. She worked with us to help us figure out where we wanted to go, and what we wanted to see, and then she worked out the entire planning process step by step. I never want to plan a vacation without her!"
