Cruising the  Mekong River in 2019
Cruising the Mekong River in 2019

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to explore and discover the world. Once I began to realize my dream, I also made it a lifelong goal to devote myself to providing exceptional experiences for clients. I have been in the travel industry for over 40 years and opened my own agency, Migrations Travel and Cruises, in Caledon in 1994.

Each time I start the planning process with you, I listen to the type of experience you are looking for. It is key to me to understand how you want to travel, what matters to you, and your planned budget, so that the experience is personal and exceptional. I treat each project with the care I would expect if I were travelling, and strive to make your experience as close to perfection as possible by maintaining my commitment to service before, during and after your getaway.

The sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, the varying forests of Costa Rica, the Savannas of Africa, Italy's Tuscan countryside, and the streets of Seville, Spain are just a few of my favorite destinations. While there are still some countries I have yet to discover, I have travelled to all corners of the globe, and am continually researching remote destinations to expand my horizons so that I can make new and exciting recommendations for clients who might be looking for the road less travelled.

Let me help you realize your travel dreams. I am excited already and can't wait to meet you!

Eastern Europe
The relationship with Helga Omstead has been outstanding. I and my team of 15 consultants travel all over the world. Helga provides our exclusive travel services - always with professional and personal service. During the Iceland volcano, we had 9 consultants working in Ukraine, Serbia, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, Montenegro and Romania. Helga worked through the air travel disruptions, and was available 24 hours a day to make myriad travel and accommodation changes to get us all home. We appreciate her dedication, compassion and professionalism.

Trip cancelled due to CV-19
Although we weren’t able to travel due to CV-19 - Helga was great. She kept in touch throughout the process and she continued to fight for our group to receive a travel credit for a future trip. We will definitely book with Helga again!

Another fantastic trip with Helga
My wife and I went on a fantastic trip last fall to Cambodia & Vietnam organized and hosted by Helga and her husband Dana. All aspects of the trip were impeccably well organized, We saw lots of amazing sites and had many great experiences. It was our third trip that was hosted by them, and Helga has also booked many trips for us with our friends. She always has great ideas and suggestions to make our trips better and we have referred many of our friends to her. I highly recommend Helga!

Best Travel Agent Ever!
In these times of DIY online booking I think a lot of people have lost the concept of having a really, really good travel agent. All this with the perception of saving a few bucks. Helga and her team spend the time to get to know you so there won’t be any disappointments. We have booked many times with Migrations and never been close to disappointed. If something goes wrong no matter where in the world we are we can get Helga’s help immediately. Try that with your online booking company!
We have recommended Helga to many people and will continue to.

The best trip of our lives!
Helga is resourceful and gives her clients 100% of her attention to detail, problem solving, planning etc.. she will also pass along savings for booking rooms/ hotels. Her recommendations are based on her personal experience whic h provides a lense to clients of destinations they haven’t traveled to / experienced.
