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!

Best travel agent around!
We have been working with Helga and her team at Migrations Travel for many years. From simple flights to South American romantic getaways to large family trips with 25 travelers, they have done it all for us. Helga has an ability to sniff out deals we couldn't find ourselves, and take care of the needs of numerous travelers with ease. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Helga and Migrations Travel for any of your travel needs.

Excellent Service and Recommendations
Helga is incredibly experienced and capable in organizing complex trip details, recommending wonderful accommodations and providing immediate service when necessary, all over the world. In addition, we thank Helga for getting us home unexpectedly due to the Covid outbreak.

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!

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.

Trips of a Lifetime with Helga.
What can we say about Helga, other than the best we've ever dealt with in our travel history. For years now, we've entrusted Helga to organize our trips. She takes the time to understand our personal wish list and plan the trip around those expectations. Not, a cookie cutter plan at all!!! Without Helga and her wealth of travel knowledge, I feel our trips would have suffered in quality. Her attention to the details and her overall personal service throughout the experience is AMAZING!!
