This was the first trip I have ever taken as a solo. I tend to be quiet and was worried I would be alone in a group of people. Never happened! Jill is so skillful in all aspects of leading a group. She constantly checked in with us to make sure we were having a positive experience in terms of sights, shopping, eating and our rooms. I had specific things for which I looking, and Jill (as well as the rest of the fabulous group) would let me know if they spotted any of the things on my list. She has the most marvelous connections with the most fabulous shop owners, boat captains, bed and breakfast owners and street sellers. Each day we met at least one of these people which made the excursion even more special. After we left she found a glass tea set for which I was looking, carried it back to the states and mailed it to me. I can't wait to return to France on another trip.

Dear Explorer, I was honored to have you in the group. Being a lifelong solo woman traveler, Im thrilled that your heart and your nose for fabulous vintage finds won out over the obvious concerns of traveling sola! I hope you and your daughter enjoy your French tea set. Hoping you make it back to French shores very soon! Warm regards, The Direction

Jill Mitchell is seamless with her planning. I spent 7 days with a new group of friends traveling through Provence ....heaven!!! Jill took us to the best restaurants, where we were warmly greeted like old friends. Our accommodations at Hotel Cardinal were spectacular...the owners there were wonderful as well. Jill gave us many choices and opportunities to experience the region. Shopping was spectacular. I’m already planning to return in 2020. Thank you, Jill. P.S. whether you or a seasoned traveler or there for the first time, you will feel welcome 💕

I went on Jill's spring tour two years in a row and, after a break, am going again this fall. I highly agree about the fun and quality mentioned in the two positive reviews. We got to see several delightful small villages, eat in local restaurants in small towns and meet some wonderful people. The small hotel we stayed in the second year was charming and the staff very polite and kind, perhaps because we were aware that the French are more formal than most Americans. I am not a hang out in a group person, but I was at ease with the others by the second day. (My trips were in 2015 and 2016)

This was a girl friends trip with six of my best friends. We range in age from 69-81. Jill met with us and helped us choose and tailored 10 days of fabulous trips, including 3 private cooking lessons with great chefs. We saw wonderful places, had a boat ride on the Mediterranean in Cassis, went to great restaurants, visited amazing gardens, went to extraordinary small villages and shopped and shopped. We stayed in an historic apartment building that was right in the heart of Aix and went to the local market to get the food to prepare our breakfasts. The cost of the trip was amazingly reasonable. And Jill was beyond the greatest tour guide, letting us experience Provence as the locals do. And a wonderful friend as well. Three of us are going back next spring, all on separate trips, to show our husbands this wonderful place. I would recommend Jill Mitchell's Le Trip to everyone. Single, married, with friends or in a group tour with new friends.

I felt like I REALLY got to know Provence, and what the Provencal lifestyle is really like. This particular trip was focused on the wines of the region, not shopping so much, which was just FINE with me. We visited vineyards, wineries, an olive farm for oil tasting, and a wine expediteur who was set up to ship our purchases in his shop, so I'm now the proud owner of a case of very very fine Chateauneuf-du-pape wine. The final two nights were spent in a fabulous private villa, where Jill arranged for a chef; on Saturday night, we cooked our own dinner under the tutelage of Chef Edith (who trained with Paul Bocuse) - what fun! On Sunday, Chef and her assistant prepared another delectable dinner for us. Prior to the villa stay, we were in a 3 star hotel (I would have rated it 4 stars) right in the heart of Aix-en-Provence-great location, great staff. Jill is professional, prepared, patient, and thorough - never misses a detail. And does she know her way around - whatever you were interest in, or wanted to shop for, Jill knew THE place to go for it. I hope to be able to travel again with Jill Mitchell's Le Trip.
