Breathtaking view of Positano, Italy

I spent 13 years in Sweden working as a flight attendant, which afforded me the opportunity to visit most of the countries in Europe. I also worked as a guest service agent at the airport, allowing me to gain an intimate knowledge of the transportation aspect of the travel industry.

Now I spend my days as a travel consultant in California, expertly crafting itineraries for my clients that allow them to experience new cultures and learn a little bit about themselves along the way.

I specialize in planning European vacations, because I spent most of my life on this beautiful and historic continent. Sweden, as my homeland, is one of my favorite places to book, but I also love planning trips for my clients to Italy and Greece.

I have backpacked through the Greek Isles, Canada, Indonesia and Thailand. My experience backpacking the globe has allowed me to understand the importance of planning and organization, while also giving me the confidence to discover hidden treasures along the way.

I always recommend that my clients learn a few native phrases of the countries they are visiting, and I also encourage them to try local cuisine while they travel. I feel this is the best way to connect with people from across the globe and show respect for their culture.

I am available to help my clients book their entire trip, from beginning to end. I coordinate tours, excursions, accommodations and transportation for my clients, ensuring that every person in the party has something special to look forward to along the way.

For me, travel is a lifestyle that I am passionate about. I love to share my passion with my clients, and hopefully allow them to also fall in love with the adventure that comes with taking the vacation of a lifetime.

She helped us navigate Europe!

Reviewed By Kristi W. - San Ramon, CA | Traveled to
My husband and I were planning our 15 year anniversary and had our heart set on Europe. We chose to visit Germany, Austria and Italy. We needed help with everything from airfare to hotels to traveling through the European countryside by train. Helene did everything for us. She made the process so easy for us. She is so knowledgable about "everything European". We were able to enjoy what my husband has referred to as a trip of a lifetime! We are so grateful to her!

Helene advised us when to book and then took care of it easily- being from Sweden herself and traveling there often we were able to benefit from her expertise!

Wonderful Experience!

Helene helped me with my trip to Japan. It was my first time visiting Japan, and I wanted to plan a couple tours to see the country and temples. The planning that Helene completed for me was wonderful. After spending some time with me to find out what I wanted to accomplish on my trip, she was able to extensively research, meet with me again, and forward me additional information regarding the tours and areas she thought would best suit my wishes. Helene's extensive travel background allowed her to make the right recommendations and upgrades for me. The two tours that Helene secured for me were highly enjoyable and the travel arrangements were definitely top notch. Without her expertise, I would have been lost and unable to wade through the many tours available. Helene is a first-class travel agent, and I can't thank her enough. I will definitely ask for her help on every trip I take in the future!
