YOUR MEMORIES AWAIT!

Our Experience Helps Your Experience!
Our Experience Helps Your Experience!

Serving My Country - I have spent 37 years in the field of aviation. I started as a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force, flying both jet aircraft and helicopters. I served my country during two peacekeeping tours in the Sinai Peninsula; helping enforce the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. After 10 years in  the air force, I became a civilian air traffic controller where I spent 27 years providing safe and professional services at, among others, Lester B. Pearson International Airport; Canada’s busiest. The last 10 years of my career, with Nav Canada, were spent in various positions where I applied my experience and knowledge as a pilot and air traffic controller to computer modelling, simulation, training, and technical system development. I retired as an Airport Ground Surveillance Radar Specialist.

Working as a Team - Whether I was flying HRH The Prince of Wales, performing in an airshow, medevacing a wounded soldier out of the desert in the middle of the night, or dealing with an aircraft emergency at Canada’s busiest airport; I was always part of a high-performance team where focus, planning, and attention to detail were critical to getting the job done.

Passion for Travel - Having travelled extensively in my professional career I am  passionate about travel and all it brings to a fulfilling lifestyle. In these travels, I discovered cruising and fell in love with my idea of the perfect vacation! A cruise is the ultimate escape to adventure; the adventure that waits for you at every port and every destination. Now I have taken my love for travel, my passion for cruising, the lessons that I learned in an amazing career in aviation, and turned them into a business where I serve my clients as a trusted cruise counsellor.

Certified Cruise Counsellor - My attention to detail translates into planning cruise vacations and giving timely advice and guidance to my clients, every step of the way. After undertaking extensive cruise industry training, I have been certified by at least a dozen cruise lines as a specialist. I received my “Certified Cruise Counsellor” designation from Cruise Lines International Association; the industry’s leading professional association. I take the time to ask questions; to learn what types of travel experiences make a cruise memorable for my clients; to really get to know my clients so  we can build a long-lasting relationship together. I use my experience,  training, and professionalism, to research and plan (or help you plan) the perfect cruising vacation.

My Promise to You - My desire to serve others is rooted in everything I do. From serving my country, my fellow airmen, or the flying public, I am ready to serve the needs of my clients as they prepare for, and embark on their own voyages. I have put my name on my business, because I want clients to know that I am James Hill Travel. James Hill Travel is me. I have personal relationships with my clients, and they receive personal service.

My client’s needs are not my top priority. They are my only priority!

Experience Budapest on your Danube River Cruise

I spent 3 amazing days in Budapest, this past April. Budapest (pronounced Budapesht) is an incredible city full of culture, and history. Budapest was originally the two cities of Buda and Pest. They lie on either side of the Danube river, but on November 17, 1873, the two were united to... Read more from my Experience Budapest on your Danube River Cruise story.

A Cruise Trip That Will Always Be Remembered!

Reviewed By HGG53 - Toronto | Traveled to Miami ~ Florida ~ USA
Jim took extra care to ensure our cruise with NCL was the best it could be. Leading up to the departure he provided many tips and questioned me to make sure there was nothing I overlooked. During the cruise our itinerary was changed due to hurricane Dorian. Jim was there for us as all our return flights and accommodations had to be changed! He did a great job getting reasonably priced flights (at the last minute) for my family....wife and two daughters. That in itself was a small miracle. NCL promised some reimbursement for the additional costs incurred but after 8 weeks and nothing happening I called Jim. He got right on it and now the cheque is in the mail. I am grateful that he has gone the extra mile for me and I totally recommend anyone considering going on a cruise or any travel whasoever to book with Jim.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
James Hill responded:
Always happy to help in any way I can. It was very satisfying to be able to mitigate what was a very significant disruption to the original itinerary. It's not often (thank goodness) that a hurricane interrupts a cruise, but the story had a happy ending!

Makes planning a trip easy!

Reviewed By Richard L - Montréal, Québec | Traveled to Miami ~ Florida ~ USA
Dealing with Jim was a great experience! We wanted to book a cruise but did not know where, when nor which cruise line to book with. He walked us through the process step by step, was extremely patient and in the end recommended a cruise that was right for us. A few months after booking, we were having an issue reserving a show on board the ship, I reached out to Jim, asked if he had some advice on how to solve the issue, he was able to provide valuable help, which in the end meant we got the reservation we desired. Jim will most definitely be our "go to" travel consultant from now on!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
