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.

Japan with a 15 year old!
I have worked with Helga for many years and on some very complicated itineraries that required many hours of research and commitment. She has come up with extraordinary tour guides, hotels and restaurant tips.

Awesome Vacation Experiences
When my husband and I travel, we quite often don't know where we want to go. Helga is so very patient, and knows the questions to ask to provide us with options for exactly what we are looking for! She also ensures that those extra little 'touches' are done to ensure that we are 100% happy and has provided 'surprises' when she knows that it is a very special occasion in our lives! Helga also follows up after every trip, and is eager for our feedback - both positive and negative so that she can adjust recommendations for other clients if required. I would highly recommend Helga and her team without question. She is awesome!

Excellent Service and Support - My Go To Always
Helga provided excellent service and support throughout our travel experience. I explained our goals for our vacation ( myself and two teenage sons). Helga had previously assisted with a vacation for us. I loved that she showed me options and was available to discuss each and the pros and cons for us. The pandemic broke out while we were away and of course it was worrying but Helga communicated with me continually and was able to put my mind at rest. No better and no other for this traveler.
