Saxonburg, Pennsylvania Travel Agent

A Dream Trip 4 U, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Central Europe, Cruise & Group Tour Specialist

I started "A Dream Trip 4 U" in 2005 after I decided it was time to stop working for others and created an agency that would be able to operate in a way that my clients would get the best of everything I could offer them. 

I knew I could best serve travelers by creating an agency on my own terms.  I was determined to prove that my agency could provide better service and value than any other means of travel planning. I was right!  I believe that nothing beats personalized service, experience, and attention to detail. I work during the hours that my clients are available to offer the best service.

I recognize the need for experienced agents in the Internet age. While many agents succumb to the pressure of bargain Internet sites, I see the niche for knowledgeable, experienced travel professionals.

I know that travelers appreciate the value of a full-service travel agency that can turn their dreams of travel into reality.   Many travelers have learned that they actually save money by seeking the help of an experienced travel professional.

I have spent nearly two decades in the industry. I have worked for several other travel agencies, learning how to work with the cruise lines, hotels, and tour operators.  Continuing my learning with both vendors and technology is a priority for me since the world is an ever-changing place and procedures are constantly evolving. 

A Dream Trip 4 U has been recognized by suppliers as a great agency to do business with. I have been awarded accolades including "Agent of the Month" by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Magazines and newspapers have profiled A Dream Trip 4 U as the smart choice for demanding travelers!

I am proud to be recognized as an industry leader.

Client Testimonial

Christmas Market in Nuremberg, Germany
Christmas Market in Nuremberg, Germany

"It would be difficult to chose one favorite experience; however, we particularly enjoyed being with a fun loving group of people with a similar heritage and interests.

This being our first trip to Poland, we appreciated the full schedule of tours, events and options that were available. The music provided by our own musicians was superb and loads of fun.  We liked our authentic Polish tour guide, Jasek, who provided a historical perspective and gave us some personal information about the country."

Couldn't Have Done it Without Her!

Reviewed By Diane - New Castle, PA | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe
We are not what you'd call "seasoned travelers" but went to Europe for the first time and on our own. We had specific dates to work around in the middle, but both ends were open. With Helga's knowledge of the area, listening skills, and personal connections, she understood what we were looking for and pulled all the pieces together into a cohesive custom plan that worked well. Her flexibility, patience and personal attention were so appreciated. She knew everything we would need and all documents, vouchers, and tickets were provided on time. All of it was done over the phone and internet with prompt responses. The hotels were all good choices and within our budget.

She created a useful "Go Sight See" app custom daily itinerary for our phones/tablet with everything we needed (lodging and transportation data) including area info and attractions like a mini-guide book that we referred to often. We truly couldn't have done it without her.
