On top of the world in Lucerne Switzerland

I've had the joy of working with clients to match them with their ultimate vacation experience for almost 30 years. In that time I have traveled to many destinations around the world and have first hand knowledge to help you navigate your destination.

In all my travel no place has captured my heart as Europe with it's old world culture and Architecture in the large cities and the small towns and country areas take you back in time to a slower pace of life.
My favorite place in the world is Italy. There is no where you venture that doesn't take your breath away. The amazing food, wine and culture soak into your being but the people and their love of life truly inspire you to bring a bit of the Italian lifestyle back home with you.

I've assisted first time travelers on motor coach tours, and world travelers with detailed independent tours to Europe and around the world. My goal is to fit you with a touring style that will immerse you in your travel destination, remove the stress, and have you return home having truly experienced the places you have visited.

I have many wonderful memories of the places I have been, please allow me to help you make yours just as special.

River Adventures
Helen is extremely knowledgeable about the travel world and very customer oriented; always willing to help in any way possible. She took care of all details of our trips; initial booking with Viking, airline tickets, money exchange, suggesting things to see and do, travel insurance and more. Throughout the entire process Helen kept us apprised of any issues and was always available to answer our questions or to just chat. She is a true pleasure to work with!

excellent service
Helen was great. She had great suggestions for the cruise cabin selection and airline flights. She answered all of our questions promptly. And when the cruise was extended a day due to weather, she did an incredible job getting us a new flight home. In fact we were the first ones on our trip that were successfully rebooked. We would highly recommend her.

Our trip to Italy
Helen has been so helpful. She booked out trip to Japan last year so we went to her again, this time not knowing where we wanted to go. She made some great suggestions including Italy so we took her word for it and booked our trip. She booked us with Monograms which made our visit even more stress-free. She also recommended some extra tours which we loved.
