EUROPEAN TRAVEL SPECIALIST

I was born and raised in the United Kingdom and I have always had a passion for travel. Living in the UK gave me the opportunity to explore Europe and experience and appreciate the huge diversity of history, culture and variety that the continent has to offer. 

After obtaining a BEd. in Physical Education, my love of adventure led me to an exciting 10 year career working for a major British airline.  This position afforded me the chance to visit and explore destinations worldwide; and crucially also gave me the opportunity to realise the challenges that travel can bring if one is not fully prepared.
 
Marrying a Canadian did not halt my zest for globetrotting and my husband’s job took us, along with our 10 month old twins to live in the Middle East for 8 years! This gave me the opportunity to visit Africa and the Far East. Upon returning to Canada I worked in Corporate Travel Planning with an oil company, organizing business trips for executives to South America, India, Paris and London.

My role as a Corporate Travel Planner led me to the Associate Travel Agent field because I enjoy researching , advising and organizing vacations for couples, families, groups and the intrepid traveler!!  I can provide you with anything from a tailor-made European trip to countries of your choosing; to an all-inclusive vacation or wedding in a tropical location; to an adventure holiday Africa or Sri Lanka.

I guarantee professionalism, insight and full assistance in planning the perfect trip.  No destination is too close or too far and no challenge is too difficult! 

Proper planning is the key to any successful vacation.

Italy...almost

Reviewed By LAtkinson - Lloydminster,AB | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We had planned a 2-3 week trip to Italy March 2020. Helen had made planning this trip so easy. Options on accommodations, trains, cars, excursions, everything. Even little tips on which times car rental offices are open and place to have coffee and
wait etc. We were just about to leave and thought we would cancel due to the coronavirus. Helen handled all the cancellations for us and was able to get nearly everything refunded, or negotiated a voucher for next year when we plan on going. What could have been a nightmare for us she made painless. Her service was impeccable and beyond what was expected. I highly recommend Helen and will definitely work with her again.

6 Week Trip to Italy

Reviewed By Paul MW - Lloydminster, AB | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We planned a 6 week trip to Italy with Helen. She helped us plan accommodations, travel, car rentals, tours, things to do and so much more. She worked with us for almost a year before and helped us during our trip as well. Helen can speak and write Italian so she was invaluable for us to communicate when it was necessary for planning and during our trip. There were so many questions we had as first time travelers to Italy that Helen was able to answer for us. Highly recommend Helen for your travels to Italy!

Trip planning made easy by Helen

Reviewed By Jeannie - Calgary , AB | Traveled to
Helen was amazing at planning our trip to the UK. Her knowledge of the countries is fantastic. She was great at finding absolutely the best price and times for flights there and home. Added to that her knowledge of train travel while we are there took all the worry out of our travel as she was able to schedule and book it for us. I would not hesitate at all to have Helen book or plan any trip you want to take.

Super knowledgeable and thorough

Reviewed By Monica - Calgary | Traveled to
Helen helped plan a very special family trip over Christmas. She spent time determining what our priorities and interests were and presented us with the most appropriate options. In addition she considered the budget needs and convenience in terms of flight times and dates. Ultimately our experience was nothing but positive. She really cared that we had the best holiday possible. Even once booked she was more than happy to answer any further questions and concerns and always answered promptly. I felt very well served and knew that she genuinely cared about our experience. Helen is professional and knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to offer great service. I highly recommend.
