  • Thank you so much for planning our fantastic South African adventure!  Thank you for taking such good care of us with the special upgrades and massages, those perks really enhanced our safari experience.  We absolutely loved being on safari!  We couldn’t have traveled like this without your thoughtfulness and expertise.

  • I thought I had a great travel advisor…..and then I met Helen Reid! Working with Helen has totally transformed our entire travel experience, from the first what if down to the final details. No matter where in the world we are headed, Helen has a connection and a relationship with someone special. I thought I was getting great extras through loyalty programs, but Helen not only finds us more upgrades, but breakfast, spa credits, late checkouts, and more. Travel has never been more fun. We cannot imagine traveling without Helen Reid!

  • Thank you so much for planning, organizing and facilitating our SE Asia trip.  It certainly stands out from both of us as one, if not the most, incredible travel experiences we have ever had.  It was perfect in every way.
